Virgin rating

The hotel

This Caribbean-style resort is right on the banks of the picturesque Lake Davenport and it's laid out over 70 acres of landscaped gardens, making it a truly beautiful place to stay. It even has its own beach on the banks of the lake! The apartment-style condos are exceptionally well equipped and you'll really have no need to eat out, but if you don't want to cook there's a great restaurant on site. This resort is a fantastic place to be if you're the sporty type, with volleyball, basketball, tennis to contend with. Kids will love the playroom and games arcade, while adults can relax and listen to soft Caribbean music by the pool, or take advantage of the fabulous new spa, offering a myriad of treatments and a fitness centre to boot. At the end of the day, the clubhouse balcony is an ideal spot to watch the Disney fireworks light up the sky.

Stayed here for 7 nights in a 3 bedroom apartment! Rooms was super big and had everything we needed! Loved the pool and mini beach area, always space and loungers available. Not many staff around but the staff at the front desk were always helpful and courteous. Car hire is essential as the location would prove not ideal if you did not have a car! We loved the location, was only a few minutes drive to Publix and resteruants. Distance from the airport was just over 35 minutes and was an easy drive, parks were also on average 20-35 minutes away. We loved the gated resort, always felt safe. Whilst the resort isn't really "wow", we would definitely return as it had everything we needed. Read less

Building 17 was one away from only food on property. Tradewinds restaurant. Grocery and restaurants about 5 min. Drive. 2 enclosed patios were bonus. Only complaints were swarm of bugs that greeted us at our door and the inability to set temp below 72degrees. 35 mins to Universal. Read less

This trip of three weeks was booked via Virgin during the pandemic and was much awaited and looked forward to. We visited in Easter 22 when restrictions had been eased. What follows is a lengthy report as what we experienced was very mixed. The location is good, the external upkeep of the property and communal areas seems good. Our children loved the pool and the nature we saw was lovely. We appreciated how safe we felt within a gated community. In short the complex has so much promise but did not deliver adequately during our visit. Travelling as a package we did not get to choose our apartment and herein lies the problem. We stayed for three weeks over Easter and were very disappointed with the internal upkeep, cleanliness and dated appearance of our apartment. The fittings were extremely dated, poorly maintained and in some instances just plainly unacceptable and unhygienic. We had peeling kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets that looked rotten and broken. Mirrors that were delaminating, fridge freezer that had rusting shelves and external rust. The seats at the table just looked filthy as they were fabric and could not therefore be cleaned. We were not provided with clean linen or offered any form of housekeeping despite staying for three weeks in accommodation that was advertised as having ‘room service’. I appreciate that this often refers to food service but it does seem odd that housekeeping was unavailable to us even for an additional premium. When I enquired at the start of our stay I was informed that we had all that we needed to do our own cleaning, not quite what I had hoped to be doing on a 10k package holiday. After speaking to Virgin we were told by the Manager that housekeeping could be added at a cost, he didn’t know what cost this was and said he would get back to us . This didn’t happen, our vacuum cleaner was broken and had exposed wires, this was replaced but the requested bathroom clean after a toilet blocking/flood was not completed nor was a suspicious blood stain on the shower cubicle removed! We were very much left to our own devices! The main TV did not work throughout our stay and despite it being fixed, it had a time lag which made the sound out of sync with the picture so it was impossible to watch. Twice this was fixed and the TV we had relocated from the bedroom replaced only for this error to repeat. Noise was intermittently an issue and depends very much how busy the complex is, when no one was above us the apartment was quiet but due to insufficient sound proofing the apartment was noisy when upstairs was occupied. You could hear every step loudly along with doors opening and closing. We were offered the chance to move but this was not practical for us as we were travelling with disabled children and also we were told we would need to move more than once as we were there for three weeks. This was all so disappointing as we booked a premium 4 V accommodation with a reputable company and were left disappointed on a once in a life time break. With some investment, clearer marketing and customer service improvements this property could be something very special it has so much potential but sadly it did not meet our expectations on this occasion.

We stayed in a first floor owner rented two bedroom condo The resort is beautiful with many heated pools scattered throughout the resort. The grounds are clean and well taken care of. There is security at the front gate. We have seen some mediocre reviews on this site which are hotel related Our stay was with a owner rented unit so we cannot adequately give an opinion on the hotal maintained units. We had a very positive stay. The only drawback was {on any cruise, hotel} guests come down to the pool very early in the morning and put their towels and belongings on the pool chairs and tables for their return later in the morning to reserve their space. So you may have to get up at 8AM on vacation to sit by the pool. Read less
