“A Vacationers Dream!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We stayed at the Summer Bay Resort in June 2014 in a 2 br. condo. Beautiful condo, good size stocked kitchen, very clean and beautiful grounds facing a heated pool that was open until 10pm. My kids had a blast. The condo had a wonderful screened in balcony. It was situated in a great location. There were fun things to do from morning until night scheduled right on premises. No need to go anywhere for fun. The Publix across the street was a plus. Fabulous staff,very accommodating with exceptional service. The Big Kahuna Restaurant on grounds was awesome. The food was great and so was karaoke night!!! We had a blast. I would recommend this resort to everyone I know. As a matter of fact to everyone I don't know as well!!!

Your comments are appreciated, thank you!

Yes, with so many restaurants located just outside the resort offering virtually something for every taste and price range, options on-site include two full service bars & grill for pool side enjoyment - morning, noon and night . Additionally, pizza, salads, subs and ice cream for lunch and dinner are also available at Loretta's.

We were directed to the welcome center by the security guard upon arrival. When arriving there minutes after leaving the gate, the welcome center was closed. Back to the security guard who then directed us to the registration desk. It was late in the evening and we were all extremely tired from the long day prior to arriving. This was unprofessional. Upon entering the room, we found fecal matter in the toilet, hair in the bathtub, blow dryer and bed. The table had to be cleaned before placing food or other items. When speaking to the supervisor, James, and the manager, they were both extremely rude and condescending. I have been a Disney Vacation Club member since 1999 and have Never been treated so Unprofessionally! Also, in the many years with Disney, I have NEVER stayed in a room as FILTHY as the one in Summer Bay Resort! The rooms need to be extremely updated. More importantly, the rooms need to be CLEANED!

1 br condo. Upscale condo has a large kitchen and tile in every room except (carpeted) bedroom, with an attractive tile design in the living room. Rooms are spacious and furniture is comfortable. Jacuzzi bathtub, washer and dryer in the bathroom. Everything was sparkling clean and tastefully decorated. Huge balconies look out onto a small pond with a fountain in the middle, surrounded by trees and manicured lawns and landscaping. Each grouping of buildings has its own pool and BBQ. There are additional "public" pools, too. Don't miss the pool area at The Big Kahuna! On site restaurants, and a Publix next door. Great service at the check-in desk--thank you Raphael and Barbara!! Free shuttle to the parks will save you lots of time, stress, and money! There is a place across the street with $15 helicopter rides. That was fun! You can see the Disney fireworks from the pool area at The Big Kahuna.

Room Tip: It looked like the first floor wouldn't have as nice a view of the pond.

We stayed her in June 2014 whilst on holiday from the UK. I don't know why this place has so many complaints because we all thought it was lovely. The only fault I can think of was that the room was a little bit dated but other than that it was lovely. The entertainment it great we really recommend doing the Zumba in the mornings! Great place and great fun!

We stayed in a Condo #408. Don't know what the regular price was for this unit as we purchased it thru a time share deal. Our cost for my wife and I was $200 for the entire week. The unit held 6 of us. There was a master bed room with a king size bed and master bathroom, another bedroom with 2 regular beds, a large living area, and a small kitchen complete with frig., microwave, toaster. There was also a built in small washer /dryer unit. The bathroom was decent sized. Each bedroom had a nice sized TV, and the living area had a larger TV. The living area had 2 straight chairs, sleeper sofa, and kitchen table with 5 chairs. My only real complaint was that the rooms needs a touch up with some fresh paint in places. There were 4 nice swimming polls that were open 24 hours for enjoyment. My complaints against Summer Bay
was what they offered beyond this. The putt-putt was $5 to play. The ski-doo's cost $65 for l/2 hour !!!!. They advertise fishing but no such thing exists. They have a small dock that they do not allow fishing off of one side. The other side is filled with weeds and boats parked. The bait shop doesn't open until 10AM and 90 degrees long after the fish that may be there have gone to the deep water. The location is very good as it is on highway 192 which leads to everything in the area including Disney. If 6 people can stay a week for under $600 it is a GOOD deal if you have to pay over $1000 then you might want to look around.

Room Tip: Get a newly renovated facility for a nicer stay.

Lovely place to stay about 20-30 minutes from most attractions so car is a must
Only ate on site a couple of times but prices were reasonable & food was good but if you prefer to self cater Walmart is 2 miles down the road or plenty of dining places within a mile
Resort is very clean with spacious apartments overlooking pool & lake with gas & charcoal barbecues for guests to use
We only stayed a week so did not use all facilities but did have a game of mini golf that was very good all staff were very polite & local knowledge they good supply was invaluable
Would recommend resort to anyone visiting orlando

Your recommendation of our Summer Bay Orlando Resort to others visiting the Central Florida area is the highest compliment you can provide our team of dedicated hospitality professionals - Thank you!

The unique location of the resort which is situated on the Orange County and Lake County lines offers guests the convenience of being close to the major theme parks and attractions for which Orlando is world famous. The resort location also puts guests so close to the natural lakes, parks, and outdoor recreational activities for which Lake County is world famous (bird watching, kayaking, canoeing, air boating, 4-wheeling, walking/hiking and more).

With a stay at Summer Bay Orlando, you get the best of everything a Central Florida vacation has to offer!
