Contempo Vacations is the management company that rents the condo unit we had at Bella Piazza. The woman at the front desk at Contempo Vacations, as well as the manager at Contempo, were arrogant, disrespectful, and NOT helpful in ANY way. I had paid for a 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom condo for a week, and had requested a unit with a pool view. The manager insisted she had just two 4/3 units available and neither had a pool view, but instead faced a parking lot. Each of these units was extremely small and my husband and I, as well as the two couples who joined us, would have been sitting on top of each if we were to have taken either of these units. The living room in each unit had just a couch and one chair. How would 6 or 8 people watch TV at night on one couch and one chari? Some in my party would have to sit in dining room chairs to watch TV in the evening.
Thankfully, while I and my party were viewing one of the 4-bedroom units, a housekeeper was cleaning the condo next door. It was a 3-bedroom unit, but the living space was considerably more spacious than that of the 4-bedroom unit, so I asked the manager at Contempo Vacations if she had a 3-bedroom unit that we could have for the week, preferably a unit overlooking one of the complex's three pools. Much to our chagrin, she gave us a unit at the rear of the property, overlooking a shopping center! With much regret and thorough disappointment, we took this unit because the living space was larger than that in the 4-bedroom units that she claimed were the only ones available. However, our stay at Bella Piazza was miserable, given the fact that our deck overlooked a shopping center, the only whirlpool at Bella Piazza closed every night at 8pm, I saw a huge roach in the master bathroom on the first morning of our stay, the TV in the living room was a very small 17" flat screen, and one couple in our party still had to sit in dining room chairs to watch TV in the 3-bedroom condo that also had just one couch and one chair in the living room! I have stayed in no less than 100 timeshare-affiliated resorts throughout the world and Bella Piazza's unit, managed by Contempo Vacations, was truly the worst. One roll of toilet tissue was provided in each of the 3 bathrooms for a week-long stay. No paper towels, no dish detergent, and no face cloths were provided. The mattresses had no support and were extremely uncomfortable. After sleeping on the mattress in the master bedroom for three nights, I had to schedule a massage because my back was aching so badly. In addition, the carpet in all bedrooms was nasty and it appeared that it had not been cleaned in ages. In both the 3- and 4-bedroom units, there were just 2 chairs on the balcony. I asked Contempo for additional chairs for the balcony. The chairs were delivered the following day, but they ended up being used very little since our balcony faced a shopping center and the view was less than pleasant. Finally, since I had rented this condo through RCI, Contempo offered no remuneration for the switch from a 4-bedroom to a 3-bedroom condo. I will never return to Bella Piazza and hope that readers will consider this review and choose to go elsewhere when making plans to travel to the Orlando area.
