8.0 Very good
Pros:Hospitality and security were very attentive and helpful. Front desk check-in was very attentive during this process. The room was clean and comfortable. Pet friendly resort. The poolside bars were great for adults. The security that is on-site is absolutely needed since Orange County has a high crime rate. I felt very comfortable and safe being at this resort.
Cons:I booked this resort because of the water park. I was disappointed that I paid resort fees and then when I went to the water park with the family I had a fee per person to get into the water park. The website did not list any additional fees for the water park. This needs to be on the website. The four restaurants were a complete disappointment. The Breakfast Buffett did not exist-maybe due to Covid. They only had a few singled items to choose from such as cereal, muffins, etc. The food at the water park was horrible. I did not try any other food at the resort because of my disappointment with the other restaurants and what they had to offer.

10.0 Wonderful
Pros:I am not sure why I have read any negative reviews regarding this place. Our experience was great and you simply can’t beat the excellent accommodations with spacious rooms for this price. While this resort offers timeshares, we were NEVER harassed or annoyed by any staff regarding this at any point. We were treated excellent for our entire stay and all staff did an extraordinary job making our stay awesome. Yes, the property is large but you can contact or wave down a complimentary resort shuttle any time you want. Our room was HUGE, and I was completely satisfied our entire trip. The place is very well cleaned and maintained. Staff is highly responsive to any request. Will definitely be staying again when traveling to Orlando. Highly recommended!

9.4 Wonderful
Pros:The resort always has a nice and clean enviroment. The location is very convenient for visit the Theme Parks
Cons:I would prefer in the moment to arrive, go to my apartment and rest. It is very annoying the insistence of the sales personal to get a breakfast meeting the following days. I am a Resort Owner and never have understood all the years is the same.
A
5.1 Fair
Pros:Pool areas were nice, rides throughout the resort very helpful.
Cons:Waited in line to check in for over 3 hours. They overbooked the rooms and were trying to shuttle families to nearby resorts. We finally got a room at 3 a.m. watched another family with 5 small children get turned away, I believe they went to sleep in their car. If I would have known it was a large time share resort would have never chosen this option. Need a golf cart to get around, very large place.
A
6.0 Okay
Pros:A nice room that was clean and comfortable
Cons:Parking at this location is severely lacking. Prepare to hike this your car. Front desk was not accommodating nor friendly even though I called ahead. On check out day housekeeping is ringing the doorbell even with the DND sign deployed over an hour before checkout time
A
8.0 Very good
Pros:Good proce
Cons:layout of room was weird. Spa tub next to bed. It is a villa...shared the front door and foyer with strangers. Elevators in a hidden area, scary at night.
A
7.4 Good
Pros:Facility was nice, and clean but they had many issues going on. The first night we arrived the room and the whole Building had no hot water. After waiting all night issue was not resolved and there was no hot water in the morning. We requested to be moved to another Bldg which they did.
Cons:Agent in the morning informed us management had no knowledge of any issues. Including another Building with no electricity. Management and front desk should know and be informed of all issues so they don’t book rooms which have problems.

Cons:Cleanliness
