Poor service, Mad at what happen because I lost my week with poor compensation. Room was great, amenities great. Relaxed atmosphere , friendly staff, great location, not made for kids, no lazy river, only 1,slide at a pool. High dollar to buy anything.

An owner (odd years only), I chose to stay at the Sheraton Vistana Resort from February 20-29, 2020 while in Orlando for a Conference. I was happy to to stay at the two-bedroom/two-bathroom villa instead of being cramped in a small hotel room. Upon my arrival I was taken to the VIP lounge to check-in. I was greeted warmly, provided with snacks, and received an upgrade. Before I asked, the shuttle driver was there ready to take me to my villa. I dropped off my luggage and then the shuttle driver took me to the Market Place where I purchased groceries. I was advised that there was an on-property taxi service, Blue Horizon Express. I used the service daily, traveling round-trip to the conference and going to other venues. The drivers provided timely and friendly service, and the rates were reasonable. One day, the service was very busy and the owner came and took me to my destination. I had not cooked in years, but took advantage of the kitchen supplies to make breakfast on a couple of occasions. Whenever I returned to the villa, it had been tended to by the housekeeper, allowing me to be able to just relax. I enjoyed meeting people in the pool and the hot tubs, and also took advantage of the Jacuzzi in my villa. The staff at the pool restaurants, store, and check-out were also pleasant. Towards the end of my stay, I was joined by a friend who had been staying at the conference hotel. She was very impressed with the property, and excited to receive her VIP band. (We have been home for a month and she is still wearing her VIP band.) I had an enjoyable stay, and even had the opportunity to meet two of my favorite YouTubers at a nearby comedy club. Read less

Condo was very dirty and dusty. Toaster broken in side, curtains hanging off hooks, kitchen appliances and cupboards dirty and sticky, counter sticky, table sticky, and coffee table dirty. Bathrooms vanity really really dusty so I could write my name on it I took pictures. Floors sandy and dirty again took picture. Phones didn't work. Patio floor was black with dirt. It took housekeeping three hours of my day to make it somewhat livable. Spoke with staff member but he didn't seem to care enough to get back to me. We checked out three days early. Read less

We have been owners for 22 years and come back to this property almost every year. Property is secure, well maintained, villas are clean. Location is central to everything in the Orlando area. Love Zimmies.

We had a large 2 bedroom unit which had lots of room for all 5 us. There were many amenities for the kids and there are 7 different pools. The Marketplace had a lot of different choices to offer in gifts, food, clothing etc.. We only tried one of the restaurants but they all seemed good. We would definitely go again
