The hotel

ChampionsGate is a brilliant 1,200-acre golf resort community just 6 miles from the entrance to Walt Disney World® Resort theme parks. With a fabulous 10,000sq ft signature Mokara spa, 36 holes of Championship golf designed by Greg Norman, a lighted 9-hole par-3 course, 18-hole miniature golf course and basketball courts as well as 3 pools — one with water slide, a 850ft 'lazy river' and a formal pool with private cabanas — the hotel is a destination in itself. In addition to all that, Camp Omni Kids' Escape offers kids all kinds of activities including crafts, games and films, during their night time programme*. The resort features a magnificent lobby that overlooks the panoramic views of the resort's 15 acres of recreation and natural surroundings. Choose between the hotel, or take advantage of the same full service in a two or three Bedroom Villa, with fabulous modern, top of the range furnishings and your very own private balcony or terrace, so you can still appreciate the views at the end the day.

We came for a golf trip. 3 guys. We booked a package which included 3 nights at the villas, breakfast, & golf.

We came for a golf trip. 3 guys. We booked a package which included 3 nights at the villas, breakfast, & golf. After checking in and unpacking we had to move to a different villa as had been given the wrong one. The villas are clean but dated. They need to be modernized. We were charged $24/day to self park outside the villas. Really. Upon checking out we had to haggle over the charges since we were charged for golf and breakfast even though these were part of our stay and play package. But the worst was having to beg to take a shower in the spa after golf even though the villa manager had assured us that we could shower there as late checkout was not an option..there are many other better more modern facilities in the area.

If you set a wake up call, and you don't answer your phone, the hotel management WILL enter your room without authorization!

If you set a wake up call, and you don't answer your phone, the hotel management WILL enter your room without authorization! I went downstairs for a carryout cup of coffee, my 7 year old son was still sleeping in the room, and a man from the hotel entered our room while I was away, opened the drapes, then saw my son. My little boy was petrified! The Omni staff had a walkie talkie and said, we have a child here. And then promptly left the room. WHAT THE HELL? I called security and they denied it - though the drapes were wide open when I returned with my coffee. I also thought it could have been a botched robbery. I was later told by Omni staff in Chicago is that it is their policy to enter rooms if someone does not pick up the wake up call. BEWARE. Read less

This could be a really nice property but after 10 pm this place is a ghost town. Every bar is closed, you can’t even sit by the pool completely away from any hotel room and sit outside and hang out with your significant other.

This could be a really nice property but after 10 pm this place is a ghost town. Every bar is closed, you can’t even sit by the pool completely away from any hotel room and sit outside and hang out with your significant other. I was sitting by the pool quietly with my husband trying to enjoy a quiet moment away from our kids at 1030 when a rude gentleman by the name of Tom Gallo who worked for Omni hotel and told us we had to leave the pool area. What? Why? I’m sitting here quietly, trying to have a quiet moment paying over $250 a night and I can’t sit by the pool with my husband? I’m sorry but that’s ridiculous. I’m sad that this man who works for this hotel was so rude, talking to us as if we were 2 teenagers blaring music and causing a scene. I’m sorry for booking a hotel that is blatantly more concerned about rules than customer service. We paid a lot of money to stay in this hotel for 4 days and we weren’t impressed. Couldn’t get coffee at shop pass 12pm, every restaurant and bar, shop, everything closes. It’s inconvenient and not geared towards the customer experience at all. Read less

Feb 17, 2019 K6320ADmarcor Burlington, Canada

The hotel overall is ok. Older design but clean. Customer service or awareness is very low. First they closed the only adults only pool instead of one of multiple family pools early. Giving me no choice but to head back to the room instead of enjoying the sun without being trampled by children. Then to make things worse it’s 3:30 pm we’ve… Read more
The hotel overall is ok. Older design but clean. Customer service or awareness is very low. First they closed the only adults only pool instead of one of multiple family pools early. Giving me no choice but to head back to the room instead of enjoying the sun without being trampled by children. Then to make things worse it’s 3:30 pm we’ve been out of the room since 8am and it hasn’t been cleaned. I call the front desk and their excuse is that the hotel is highly booked. Which isn’t an excuse, you are a hotel you know your room occupancy ahead of time. The issue is you didn’t staff properly for it. So now no sun and a room that hasn’t been cleaned and supplies not refreshed and they have zero concern. All I got was an excuse. Perfect example of bad customer service. Read less
