We were in the Orlando area and stayed at Summer Bay Resort and moved to Star Island for the second week so this is comparison review. Spoiler - Summer Bay is far superior
First off Star Island gave a horrible room. It was furthest from everything an inadequate, The front desk was useless. They gave us an 800# and said we had to call Wyndham for any changes. The room had 2 queen beds, each against a wall so if you wanted to sleep together the person against the wall could not get up. The refrigerator did not have an ice maker and there was not a coffee table for the couch. Our full kitchen was a partial and we had to store food in the dresser drawers. I have been in better hotel rooms. As an insult we had no signal for cell service in the room. We met our neighbors and they had a deluxe room with a balcony which was nice.
Pools - Summer Bay has two pool complexes with good food available plus a pool near every building. Star had one pool which was a long wall since we had a crappy room. Drink prices were reasonable at Summer Bay while $6,25 for a draft beer at Star was ridiculous. The pool DJ was good.
Star had nightly dinners at a reasonable price but the food was bad. The other entertainment was not worth seeing. Summer Bay had much better entertainment.
