We stayed 2 nights the weekend of April 25th 2014. The front desk staff was so nice. LAURA helped us check in and she was fabulous & super helpful. I can't say enough about how sweet she was to us all. First impressions go a LONG way!
The room was nice, the beds were surprisingly comfortable. Pillows were great too. The bathroom was good size, with plenty of room for "extra stuff" that a family brings. Room was a decent size. My only complaint about the whole place was that there was not room in the refrigerator to bring things (it was a stocked mini bar) there wasn't a single spot to put a bottle of water or bottle of wine. We had great food & wine from the Italian restaurant & would have loved to keep it. That is not deal breaker for me & honestly the only complaint I have with this beautiful hotel. Just a warning for moms who need to refrigerate formula or milk. Maybe request an empty fridge?
The food available was GREAT & fairly reasonable for Orlando / Theme park hotel. You could by a bottle of wine at a restaurant & just walk around with a wine glass in your hand (big bonus for moms & dads needing a break). The grounds were spectacular. Two awesome pools! There was a great staff by the pool to take drink orders & get food. The service was fast & food was delicious.
I will most definitely stay here again without a doubt! EXCELLENT hotel & staff. Worth every penny!
