I spent the weekend here a scrapbook retreat. It was set up by Maria Teresa Carney. Had a wonderful time! We were set up in the basketball court and had lots of room. The lighting was great for scrapbooking and the 8 foot tables provided lots of working space. The staff was very accomadating to our late hours. I stayed in a 3 bedroom unit with several other scrappers and we had plenty of room. The rooms were clean and it was nice to have a kitchen. Thanks Maria for helping us have such a fun weekend. Look foward to our next retreat there!

We stayed there for a family Disney vacation in the last week of August. A comfy king bed (One of the most comfy beds to sleep on....Did not want to wake up the next day, seriously, after a tiring day at Disney).....Great amenities. A big coat-shoe closet. Pretty cozy couches. Both living room & bed room have ceiling fans. Spacious kitchen(we cooked on all days that we stayed there. (DO NOT forget to take dishwasher detergent & laundry detergent. We did not. We brought Tide Action pacs & Finish dishwash tabs, very convenient than powders or liquids).

Clean bathroom with sample toiletries (although not sufficient, come on, let's be reasonable), hair-dryer and a spacious closet. Compact bedroom with big storage chest and a TV and a ROOMY walk-in closet. Lots of storage space - given the whole condo. Full-size washer & dryer. VERY CONVENIENT again. A dishwasher. Iron with board. Kitchen had a coffeemaker (they provide a few sample coffee packs with filters not enough for more than 3-4 days. But we had brought our own Millstone coffee. But we did not bring filters. And this brings in WALMART just a minute drive from the resort where we bought our FORGOTTEN groceries.) Quite enough cookware & utensils. Anyways, we brought our own few stuff which we used along with theirs. It also has a blender & hand mixer too (A pleasant surprise, we made juices and whipped cream !!). Induction cooktop (!!) with oven & microwave. All in reasonably working condition. Lots of dinnerware and serveware. We need not have brought our own. Get some Bounty towels (they have a sample towel roll but I cannot live without Bounty). And bring in your own toilet tissues (they provide 2 rolls) and Kleenex.

A couple of minor gripes were solved by the maintenance team with a phone call (Or while driving past the exit gate, just inform the office staff). Trash compactors near the exit gate. The living room has a big screen TV with self-tuning channels (I found it quite annoying to tune in each & every channel. But my couch-potato hubby did not seem to bother. He self-tuned all major channels that we used to watch and started watching it just a couple of hours into the resort. Sigh !!) The couch/sofa had some stains. But not so bad. We did not sit in that part of the couch. The bed was clean with cozy comforters & sheets. Very clean. Digital thermostat. Nice dining table with chairs & breakfast counter. Nice patio with chairs. If you are in the first floor, expect some running noises especially with kids on the second floor!! But kids are kids. We had a naughty toddler too. And moreover, we felt safe & secure.

And the PRICE, unbeatable. My only grudge is that the shower curtains were moldy on the bottom - does not feel good. Having said that, a VERY GOOD STAY AT AN AWESOME PRICE. Hope I did not miss anything. When we left Florida, we did get the post-Disney disorder. That applies to the beach club too since we felt quite at home there for a week. Did not have time to use Spa or gym or pool. So, cannot comment on those. I would not hesitate to give it 5 stars even with some minor gripes. But I was just neutral. AND RUNAWAY BEACH CLUB, KEEP IT UP.....always.

Room Tip: Read my review. You will know what to do. We stayed in a room on the rear side of the driveway - m...

This resort features condo-like town houses. It was very comfortable for both grandma and the kids who accompanied us. Pretty clean. In need of a couple of minor repairs to like the blinds and the knobs on some of the closets but good overall. Take your own coffee filters and laundry or dish soap if you are staying more than one night. The pool area is nice but my little people were dissapointed the splash pad wasn't in operation.

My family and I recently spent two nights at Runaway Beach Club. While the layout of the rooms were great, some of the furniture is in need of replacement. There were a few stains on the couch in the living area; as well as, on the carpet. Overall, the stay was ok; however, the resort rooms are in need of a few updates (including modern television sets) new carpet, and new furniture. With a bit of TLC and a few updates, Runaway Beach Club would be a great place to stay!
