We were there over Spring Break. Our unit was very nice. I was impressed with the quality of the furniture. Everything was clean and no stains. The staff was very friendly. There was not a huge push to attend their timeshare presentation which I appreciated. Once, we called for maintenance and received an immediate response.The grounds were well maintained and we enjoyed walking about in the evening. We used this as a base to go to a variety of places and never felt that we were far away from anything. Strip mall with a grocery store, a few restaurants, a hair salon, and a nail salon right next door. I was so comfortable there, I really did not want to go back home.

Room was at the very end of a building so it was quiet. Disney fireworks could be seen from porch so that was a plus. Everyone at the pool seemed to be having a fun time. There seemed to be a lot of road construction in the area but it didn't really cause us problems.

The nightly fireworks display viewed from select locations on the resort is really special.... thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed some rest, relaxation, peace and quiet all the while being so close to the area's most popular attractions.

We're happy to report that the road improvements on 192 are expected to be completed this summer which will make travel to all the area fun spots even more efficient

I was a leery about staying here after reading some of the reviews. I actually called and asked some questions about things I had read. I kept my reservation and was glad I did. Everything was great. No pressure with the sales pitch and the rooms were clean and updated. We would definitely stay there again.

Check in was smooth building 201 was older but nice, clean and great location away from noise
Food was good. Pools clean packed with kids of course
Sales pitch as usual. A lot of renovations and new construction going on . In a few years will be great for families. Close but far away from attractions
Visited old town and gator land
My only gripe is we left a day early and they didn't even ask why
Ok bye 2 second conversation if that. Need to be a little bit more
Personal when not a member
But Rci members should be treated a little bit nicer
Would I go back with their 4 year
rule yes... To see their new additions and maybe say something next time if I leave early
Overall nice, relaxing and fun if you have kids
Oh they charge too much for things like water sports, golf etc. free maybe not but come on lower your fees

Hello and thank you for your recent feedback. We are sorry that you had to leave us early, one day short of your scheduled check-out. We hope that all is well back home in Largo, Florida.

Yes, there are lots of exciting developments occurring on the resort and this summer we look forward to the opening of the first of them - the on-site Adventure Park.

You're right! You'll have to come back in the near future and check it out!

Stayed there in March 2014. It was great except for road construction that backs up traffic every night after 9PM. I would NOT go there this summer until this road work is done. It is a nightmare when returning from Disney are or anywhere else east of the resort. ther than that it is a great resort with all of the comforts you want.
BUT....DO NOT go on a timeshare presentation no matter what they are offering you. They are running a highly regimeneted and demanding timeshare presentation. This place is one of the most demanding and pressure packed presentations you will ever be undertaking. This is a BIG Business for this resort.
We had a wake-up call from a general manager at the unprofessional and disturbing time of around 7:30 AM on our first day there to remind us of the presentation. Then it lasted well over 3 1/2 Hours....yes 3 1/2 hours.
Not a good start to our week there.
We will go back, but only after the road work is completed and will NEVER go on their timeshare presentation.

The road improvements you mention are scheduled for completion this summer. Yes, it has slowed things down but once completed, it will surely be speeding up travel time to all the area attractions!

We spent a week at Summer Bay and didn't leave feeling overly excited about the place. We found the location to be very inconvenient, although their is a grocery store nearby, it is a bit of a trek to get to any of the major attractions, such as Disney World. Not a great spot to be if you're hoping to maximize your time at parks, malls, or attractions while minimizing time spent in the car. However, we planned to spend a fair amount of time relaxing at the resort itself so didn't mind the location too much. In terms of the resort itself, we were a bit disappointed. Our building's pool was small and quite shallow, not much deeper than 3ft in most areas. This was great for our young traveler, but didn't make for very exciting pool time for our older swimmers who would have enjoyed actually swimming in the pool rather just wading around. Our young traveler loved the nearby water play park, however visits were kept short as the water is freezing. We walked down to check out the "beach" area and vowed not to use it! It is a pretty sorry excuse for a beach; it is very small and murky and there are signs advising swimmers to use nose-plugs and the like to avoid ingesting parasites from the water. We decided to stick to the pools, although there were a few teenagers thoroughly enjoying the floating raft activities in the water as we walked by. We also saw a few young people fishing and that looked like a pleasant experience if you enjoy the sport. We were disappointed with the lack of food offerings in the main building, mainly pizza and subs. We ventured out for ice cream one afternoon and while it was good, it was extremely expensive (around $8 for two very small "1-scoop" cones). There was a very small mini-golf course on site, but came with a fee of $5 a person, which we decided to skip. We were much more satisfied with Big Kahuna's Grill, a poolside option on one end of the resort. Towards the end of our stay we ventured down there for lunch one afternoon and really enjoyed the food as well as the atmosphere of dining by the pool. We were actually kind of disappointed that we hadn't found it sooner as it offered more of the atmosphere that we were expecting from the whole resort. We had planned to bbq on the first night of our stay and found that the two communal bbqs were very dirty and worked very poorly, however, the next morning they were all fixed and cleaned and remained in good working order for the remainder of our stay. The rooms were big, well furnished and accommodated our large group well. We found the rooms to be lacking a bit in cleanliness when we first arrived, with some obvious dust and dirt around the baseboards and grime on the bathroom taps. We took this in stride, but were expecting a little more from Summer Bay. We found the resort to be pretty quiet, there were activities advertised to be held at the main building and perhaps they helped occupy the children and crowds as we found our building to be quiet and undisturbed most of the time. Overall our experience was alright, it wasn't bad, but perhaps our expectations were a little too high as we just didn't see the "wow-factor" that we were expecting.
