Virgin rating

The hotel

With spacious apartments that are up to 5 times the size of your average Orlando hotel room, this resort is perfect for families and groups alike. The Sufari water park is an attraction in it’s own right, complete with water slides and a lazy river, and there's also a huge indoor entertainment centre with arcade games and glow in the dark mini golf, the kids won’t know where to start! The resort feels secluded and self-contained, but you’re just 10 minutes from Walt Disney World, with a complimentary shuttle bus included to take you to the door and back.

First time visiting the resort, great experience. Easy check in, beautiful room and friendly staff. The kids loved the water park area! Our server in the pool area was Shaunté and she went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time! You won’t be disappointed!

The resort was fantastic, we did the Wave Runner twice while we stayed at The Grove, Max and Tyler were great instructors and you can really tell they love what they do. Just the small things of jumping on a board and riding circles around our daughter or splashing her made it feel more personal than just an attraction. We’d actually been at the resort over spring break and then two months later had to come back and the first thing our son asked for was to get him signed up for the Wave Rider. A+++ and top notch all the way around. Read less

We had a great trip at The Grove and the water park, but the highlight was truly the Flow Rider experience with Brookelyn and Jax. They were both extremely professional and attentive, whether they were teaching new riders or advanced. Five star service and highly recommend!
