We loved the pool at this hotel. My kids ranged from 11-18. I think younger than this would really enjoy this hotel because the Lagoon is really designed for them. I enjoyed the DJ on the pool deck. My feel were bouncing all afternoon.

I have been here since Thursday and will be here till the 26th and I have to say the whole staff is great. But one staff member In particular really exudes the Hilton core value. Kali at the Laser Maze was amazing, and very patient with my son who is very good with trying ones patience. She smiled and answered questions, and was continually inviting. The kid was at the maze for hours. Playing over and over again, honestly I don’t get it but I’m quite sure because of the game and Kali’s hospitality. It was definitely a win/win situation Read less

My family (me, husband, 5 year old and 18 month old) loved it! Check in was super easy and fast. Room was perfect for a family-- separate living room/kitchen area and spacious bedroom. Two tv's. There were 4 cups, plates and bowls. Didn't see any utensils. Decent size fridge and stovetop. We were able to buy a case of water, milk and cereal to… Read more
My family (me, husband, 5 year old and 18 month old) loved it! Check in was super easy and fast. Room was perfect for a family-- separate living room/kitchen area and spacious bedroom. Two tv's. There were 4 cups, plates and bowls. Didn't see any utensils. Decent size fridge and stovetop. We were able to buy a case of water, milk and cereal to save some money on breakfast. The pools and water park area were great. Kids had a blast. All of the staff that we encountered were super friendly and helpful. We are here over spring break so its a little crowded but not awful. Its a HUGE property so its not terribly convenient to run back to your room if you need something but great for walking a baby around to get them to nap. Overall, super pleased and would definitely recommend. Great value and wonderful time here! Read less

This was the worst hotel experience I’ve ever had. We had my daughters 10th bday planned with five other girls. We went to check in and I was told my room was cancelled! I had five girls super excited and I was the only adult there. We drove an hour from home and I was stuck trying to wrap my mind around how this could happen! The night manager called my phone and my vm was apparently full. My card did not work on file and they said due to that my reservation was canceled. What hotel chain does that? One night payment is required or your reservation will be cancelled. Read the fine print I guess. One phone call was made, what about text, email, a second call? It was mind blowing. The rest of the hotel was full. The only answer from the manager was to book a room elsewhere. I also received an email two days prior, stating the hotel was excited for our stay. I thought that was confirmation all was good. I was sure wrong! Well, it’s not easy to find a hotel to accommodate six people in one room. This is why I booked a suite. Also, I was looking for entertainment for the kids and a one stop place to spend time enjoining amenities. I will say that the manager did give us bands for The pool but did not honor the package I purchased for the arcade, movies, and laser tag. Well, after such disappointment and frustration I let the girls go use the pool. The area wasn’t very clean and most of the staff were not friendly or accommodating. We had families playing very loud music on their speakers. It was not what I expected. Also as soon as we finally got to the pool, they closed it down for 30 min. I’m not sure what that was about? Good thing Disney came through, you get what you pay for. We had a lovely stay at the cabins at Fort Wilderness and my card worked just fine. Way more that I planned to spend but I think it was for the best. I would never give my business to this establishment. Read less
