“No Wow factor and not clean”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

selected this hotel mainly on assumption that number 1 rating on trip advisor must be good. On the plus side the rooms were very spacious and the wi fi good. However cleanliness was disappointing. several hairs greeted us in the bath. greasy lights above kitchen island. rubbish outside door remained for 6 days. apartment was dark. the pools were smaller than would be expected for a resort of this size. i normally stay in 4 star hotels. this seemed to me like a low three star. the drawer in the bedroom was so rough i had to place a towel in it to protect clothes. very good location and staff were pleasant. toiletries cheap and nasty. as they have a non cleaning policy (trash and tidy) policy be prepared to vacuum and clean yourself if there for more than a few days. its a mystery how this resort is ranked so highly.

Room Tip: look closely at competitors first

Good hotel to use as forward operating base for visiting the Disney and Universal parks and Cape Canaveral ( you have to go there) .
Effective location that's easy to get to from the airport. It has spacious rooms and lounge area, comfortable beds , jacquzi , adequately equipped kitchens and close proximity to a variety of restaurants and supermarket along International Drive.
The rooms are clean and the staff very obliging with nothing being to much trouble. The lady at the conceierge is a mine of information.

Pool size is adequate for the late afternoon swim. It does get crowded during US school holidays but that is only to be expected. I accept the rooms are getting a little tired and could do with a make over but that wouldnt put me off staying there , after all all you want is a bed and some where for breakfast and a swim. The rest of the time we were in the parks.

We compared it to other hotels on and off the Disney Resort parks and it won hands down on issues of cost, space and location. We will be staying there again soon.
Cheers

Room Tip: That would depend on your own preference. Ask the check in staff who gave us a choice of four rooms...

Rooms were clean on the surface, but I found a dead lizard between the TV in the master bedroom and the wndow, so I doubt they thoroughly clean the rooms. However, the rest of the two bedroom suite was in good condition, despite also needing a good thorough clean. This property is very conveniently located, however I highly recommened a rental car if staying at this location. Although the shuttle is reliable, it can take a very long time to get to your destination. The emenities in the suites are quite good. I liked the convenience of having a washer and dryer in the room. Additionally, the kitchen area is great for family gatherings, if you are traveling with a larger party I agree with other reviewers that the main pool area gets too crowded, and seems to close early. You will be hard pushed to find a place to rest by the pool on busier days. Note that as others have mentioned, the hotel does in fact charge a daily fee for amenities which I believe is based on the number of people in your party. $50 for its amenities (compulsory). If you do need extra supplies, other than what is in your room at check in, you will need to make a request to the front desk. Overall, I would stay at this hotel again simply because I like the convenience, and the suites are a great size for a family.

This was our third visit to the resort and sure we will be back next year again, because this place is what we a looking for when travelling with family. You have nice big room in the apartment, washer/dryer , full kitchen, nice pool area, restaurant, big malls close, all the theme parks, free shuttle from the hotel to the parks. Nice front desk staff.This is vacation as its best. see you again Floridays.

I booked a three bedroom suite which was quite spacious. However there isn't much room to hang your colthes nor drawers for clothing. The shower is small and there is no lower tap so that you can adjust the water temperature before using the shower. So its like turn on the shower and you then make a run for it before the cold water hits you. By the first morning when I left for breakfast, $1005 was stolen from my room along with my son's camera. There was very little reaction from the hotel front desk and they did not pick this incident up with the local police. Beware, the hotel charges $50 for its amenities (compulsory). It does not offer much besides the pool and game room. The hotel offers no resturant beside the Palm Cafe which is a small and offers a fast food type service. Not much options for food there. Do not stay here its just not worth the money. I am still a guest here only because they charged my card the full amount on check in. Room service only takes out the garbage and tidy the bed. No additional body wash, no shampoo, no conditioner, new sheets are at a cost. There is a little card in the room that tells you this.

Room Tip: Do not stay here. Please!!!!
