A little bit late writing this review and it is my first one. Me and my partner (ages 28 and 35)stayed here in October 2011 for 2 weeks. It was both our first time to Florida and we were very surprised at what we got for our money. The hotel doesnt jump out at you with its beauty but its clean and tidy and the food was excellent. Me and my partner loved the massive room and it was kept clean daily. The pool was very nice and the pool bar must be the cheapest around!! We got drunk on 7 dollars there!! every other night cost us 50 plus!! For value you really cannot go wrong. We looked at some of the reviews before we went and saw pictures of a broken light bulb and someone moaning about it.....if you are that way inclined and want perfect decor then you need to pay more money for a 5 start hotel im afraid as the exterior walls and the odd braoken bulb (which we didnt see by the way) is the only thing that needs doing up in this hotel. I am not fussy but i have standards and this hotel way exceeded these. Whats important is the food, cleanliness and the space and we got all of that in a superb location for £600 for both of us for two weeks bed and breakfast from iceloll.com!!! The staff there were truly amazing too, so friendly and genuinly wanted to help you. Def go for the happy bus pas things as they are excellent value for money and very often.
We would def recommend the "Friendlys" restaurant right on the corner of the road by the hotel, 2 courses and free re-fill drinks for 9.99 dollars and great tasting food. Also an all you can eat chinese buffett just down the road #(walking distance) which was fab!! Obviously you are in a different country so dont expect everything to be the same as home. We went for an indian meal one night and my partner was appalled as it was nothing like back home, but the flavour in my opinion was actually better!
For the trips we went on the murder mystery night and it was really good fun! We loved it, so worth the money, and if you like a tipple, the drinks are free all night long. Obviously we done universal too.....please, please bring plasters ad COMFY shoes...i had NO idea i would be walking a marathon everyday, the place is just so big.
City walk on a night time is a must, if you love music like us then the bob marley really made it for me!! reggae all night, you can go from bar to bar as you please so thats good too.
All in all we would go back in a heartbeat as this place really is excellent.
