It was simply the best, from the time my husband and i entered. We were greeted by Adam, and the host sat us to our table, there was no wait. Soon we were greeted by maggie,who took great care of us. we felt right at home, after lookin over the menu we ask for a sample of the brisket due to my husband high blood,he cant have too much salt ,after tasting the brisket we knew, we had died and gone straight to haven,oh boy it was the best brisket we ever had. My complements to the cheff he said they cook their brisket for 16 to 18 hours a day and never serve left overs, always cooked fresh everday. thank you westgate smokehouse grill, for the,Best Dorn Brisket my husband and i ever ate,and ate and ate. thank you, Adam and Maggie Job well done, and my hats off to the cheff and i dont even wear a hat..In His Love Herbert and Kenetha Mincey.

I have stayed at this location many times in the past and I am glad to report it is still a fine place to stay. If you are doing Disney resorts, parks etc or just in the area for business it is a wonderful
option for you. Much more affordable and just as much to do. Located about three minutes from Sea World parks and ten minutes from Universal Studios and international drive the entertainment and dining options are endless. The rooms are suites as this is a time share resort that rents the available rooms out to the public. Multiple pools and a lakeside setting make it really easy to cool off in the Florida sun.

I had to visit due to a trade show and decided to take the family, with it being our first time doing the Disney thing we were overwhelmed with choices of where to stay. We knew an owner and he assured us that this was the place to be near and do everything. He couldn't have been more right. I can't comment on other places but there couldn't be one much better. The staff was professional. The accomodations terrific, we had a double room and it is like 2 apartments which worked out for the older kids. The grounds and pool areas large and well kept. Although seating can be a problem on busy weeks. And the location is second to none for access to all the parks and restaurants. We love loved it and wish we had more than the week. I would recommend it to anyone. This was a very large 3 bedroom 3 bathroom set-up and it was only 1k for the week in prime time.

Thank you for your review of Westgate Lakes Resort & Spa. You are correct; our resort is a “great place, affordable and well located”. We are near all the Central Florida attractions and shopping outlets making us a great place for an Orlando family vacation. Thank you for your kind words about your staff. They work very hard to ensure that all guests are enjoying their vacation. We are happy that your “accommodations were terrific” and that you would recommend our resort to anyone.
Thank you again and please come back to Westgate Lakes Resort & Spa during your next Orlando vacation.

We had been fixed week, fixed apartment owners since 2003, generally using alternate years to visit Florida. Whereas the majority of our visits have been first rate our most recent vacation had us amongst the short stay rental properties where we did not feel the benefit of being an owner. To resolve this problem we have become 'floating week' owners and have up-graded to a four bedroom villa. Whether we are able to select the villa and location of our choice with this upgrade is yet to be proven. Please Westgate give four bedroom apartment owners a clear listing of which blocks would be available, especially the newer apartments. We have always found the apartments to be clean and well stocked with bedding/towels/basic kitchen supplies etc. The staff are friendly, efficient and helpful. We have loaned our apartment out to friends twice and they have all had good experiences. It is within easy reach of the Disney parks, places to eat and the shopping malls. Would recommend to anyone wishing to stay in Florida.

We were in Orlando for a Trade Show and needed space to do work and relax. The property was outstanding. Very clean, lovely staff, really nicely stocked. The only "bummer" is that we were there for only one night. We would absolutely stay at this property again and will recommend it to friends/family coming into town for either conventions or the great Disney/Orlando Adventure.

Room Tip: We asked for Lake View Villa to avoid pool noise and were really happy with it. The view was so peaceful.
