“Marriott offers consistency in a good way!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

We are Marriott Vacation Club owners and this was a typical Marriott resort. And that's a good thing! You always know what to expect and you get it. Comfortable beds and furniture, quality bed linens (although the bath & pool towels were a bit worn and they could have replaced with newer more absorbant towels), WiFi, nive flat screen TVs, a good selection of TV channels, etc... We had two very minor items that needed maintenance with our unit when we checked in. I called the maintenance department and within 10 minutes a maintenance man was at our door. He left to get a part and returned within 10 minutes with the part, and made both repairs. The issues were addressed in 30 minutes! Noe that's quality service. The people consierge desk were very helpful with their knowledge and suggestions for area attractions, restaurants, and directions to avoid nasty traffic. It was difficult to find chaise lounges for our family at any of the three pools, but I surmise that is what I should have expected for mid April, the week after Easter. It would be nice to have had more chaise lounges but in all fairness, I don't know whether any more would fit around the pools.

Our stay at the Grande Vista was great, we had a three bedroom which was great for the grand children. Everyone had their own room and baths. The resort has many pools, the two main pools are great for the kids and they have three or four less busy pools for those that like a more quiet atmosphere. They have onsight restaurants, fast food, 9 hole golf course, boat rentals and fishing poles for the kids. Just a great resort to enjoy in the middle of Disney World!

Room Tip: Rooms close to the two main pools are best if you have kids, otherwise look for a room next to one o...

I usually stay at Vistana but would definitely stay here again. The rooms (2 bedroom condo) are clean, very attractively decorated, large and very well equipped. Loved the beach area next to the lake and the big pool was so nice. The grill next to the pool was a good choice for lunch and speciality drinks. Enjoyed Faldo's restaurant and the location is great right on the property. Can't wait to return, one of the best time-share properties in Orlando.

We stayed at the Grande Vista from Easter Sunday to the following Sunday. There are nothing but positive things I can say about this resort. I called ahead and asked for a room close to the kids pool, and got the corner unit at building 84. The room was beautiful, a one bedroom villa with kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom, and bathroom with jacuzzi. The room was clean and nicely done.

Building 84 is an older building, with older appliances, but I hardly knew. The location was spectacular overlooking the pool and lake, and just down the stairs and to the right was the kids pool with a mini water park area with sprayers shooting out. The pool area was beautiful, and the restaurant Coco Loco was delicious! The pina colada was so good. The only problem we had was chair hogs which you find everywhere. Even parking at 1am wasn't bad. There was always a close parking spot available. The location is 1/2 mile from SeaWorld, and there is a CVS and Publix within a mile from the hotel. There are various kids activities for the children everyday. There were movies on the beach, smores making, and even the Easter bunny came on Easter sunday.

We had a grand time at the grand vista, the only negative that I had was having to leave this beautiful resort to go to the theme parks every day.

Room Tip: If you have children, ask for a building near the childrens pool.

This is a very nice resort. I'm not a golfer so I can't review the golf course. It was fairly quiet and a good place to relax. The room was decent. We enjoyed the pools and hot tubs. Every night there were campfires on the "beach." The S'mores were free on Saturday night only. A lot of activities, but most required fees and/or reservations. It's very close to Sea World and other attractions. Near I-4 and the Beachline. The wi-fi seemed to go out once in a while. Prices are high for drinks and food, as you would expect. We enjoyed our stay overall.
