“Nice enough place to stay.....”
Reviewed 1 March 2010

This is a nice enough place to stay but I wouldn't say it's the best I've stayed at though.It was smaller than some two bedroom condo's we've stayed in and the housekeeping could be a little bit better.The very first night we were there the master toilet overflowed and we had to use all the towels to soak up the water.....in the middle of the night! We called in the morning and it was "fixed" when we got back to the condo at the end of the day.I had to call for more towels though because they never replaced them.The next night the "fixed"toilet overflowed again! We could have been crazy customers and demanded another room but we felt it would have been too much trouble to repack everything and move.So..we stayed and from then on it really was fixed and all was well the rest of the week.We traveled with our two Grandaughters and they loved having their own beds and bedroom and bath and we were fortunate enough to have three warmer days so they enjoyed the beautiful pool.Over all,even though there were a few issues,we had a nice stay there and the staff was always very nice and no hard sell on time share buying.

I went as a single woman and I felt very secure at the facility. The rooms/suites were very nice and clean, very roomy and quiet.

I am at the Vistana Villages now, and this is the most beautiful place I have ever stayed in the Orlando area. Palm trees everywhere on this 95 acre property with 4 pools, one with a pirate ship and waterslide. The main pool is huge, has a couple waterfalls, two hot tubs and is open until 1AM. Activities all day. Walking paths, grills, hammocks, tiki torches, multiple gyms, game rooms, Free Wi-Fi, No resort fees..etc. The ambiance of this place is just sprawling tropical brilliance set to music (all pool areas play music)! I will absolutely be back!

One tip - Don't pick up the 'free welcome gift' or go to the 'free breakfast', unless you don't mind checking out the Sheraton time share stuff. Beyond that they haven't bothered us at all.

My family and I spent 9 nights in the Sheraton Vistana Village in early Feb. The suite was huge and beautifully furnished. Housekeeping gave a light tidy everyday (dressed beds/loaded dishwasher etc.) with a big clean being completed on the 5th day. The resort has 3 huge swimming pools and the newest one has a waterslide and pirate themed kiddie area, although it was too cold to fully appreciate in Feb. The hot tub, however, was amazing - too hot if anything! There's one restaurant in the resort and it really wasn't great, not exactly a fine dining experience! You will definitely need a car if staying here as it is at the quieter end of I-Drive. The trolley stops right outside but crossing the road, particularly with children can be dangerous as it's 6 lane with no pedestrian crossing. The road is pretty quiet outside of rush hour. One negative point - beware of staff trying to sell time-share apartments! When we arrived they told us about all these free gifts and Disney discounts we'd get at a complimentary breakfast the next day. However, we read the detail to discover it was an invitation to a 90 minute talk re time-share!!! 90 minutes mightn't sound like much to get really good discounts, but it would have taken up the entire 1st morning as it began at 8am. Early starts are the only way to go if ur hitting the theme parks! Other than this one annoying point I would definitely recommend this hotel and I hope to return in the future!

Asked for room at Key West, it was the best room we had ever stayed in.
The decor was very modern, both televisions as well as all the appliances worked.
We got 1 1/2 bath with the largest whirlpool and the strongest jets, so at the end of our visit to Universal Studios I was able to enjoy a totally relaxing massage bath.
Found all the staff to be very helpful and friendly, we were checked in by Seth, who really did a great job giving us all the necessary info.
Yeah, we did the timeshare tour thing, but it was worth it, got discount tickets to the park and $40.00 cash back (extra spending money).
Apart from that we got no calls, we got a list of the activities, times and the venues, so we could have chosen to participate or not.
All arrangements for rental cars, park shuttles, etc, were made at the Travel & Attractions desk.
The grounds were well kept, housekeeping replaced all linens and soaps etc.
Rented a car for a few days, but the I-ride is a very convenient and fun way to move around, purchased a seven day unlimited pass.

Overall my husband and I had an enjoyable time.
Thanks Sheraton.

The thing we liked about Vistana was that is was a mixture between self catering (which we enjoy) but with quality communal facilities.

Location is pretty good. Not in the heart of I Drive but not too far out and you can get around poretty easily. You really need a car to get the most out of Orlando I believe but it was nice being able to hop into the restaurants and bars pretty coveniently.

The Village is pretty massive and the lakes make it as aesthetically pleasing as you can get in Orlando. Goes mean that it is very spread out so there can be some walking if you need to get to a pool or restaurant on the other side of the complex. But hey, this is America.. you can always be lazy and drive!

The accommodation is superb. Great kitchen if you want to do proper cooking, and huge fridge for beers, wine and treats. Proper lounge dining kitted out with Tvs, DVD player, hifi system, dining table and balcony. Bedrooms are pretty generous and the 2 bedroom apartment we had, has a sunken bath with jets and bubbles. Heaven after a hard day in the parks.

We didnt have children but if you did the apartments would be perfect as the kids can crash whilst you relax in comfort of an arm chair rather than being stuck in a hotel room.

Only negative was that it was pretty pricey for Orlando and we could have found cheaper but probably without the comfort that we had. We believe it was worth it and pleased we didnt just choose a box room on I Drive.
