“Great Place for young families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

We've stayed here a number of times and have always had a fun experience. The condos are spacious, cheerfully decorated, well appointed and clean. The play areas and waterpark play areas were great for the kids, as were the kids activities. Close to Sea World and other parks. The staff were friendly and professional.

Spacious. Great remodeled kitchens. Was a great home base with lots of room to spread out for our golf week. Plenty of room for teen agers. Washer dryer for added convenience. Pool area had food and beverages - good quality and affordable.

Marriott's Harbour Lake is one of Marriott's time share properties which they also rent out to non owners on a daily basis. It's a great alternative to small, cramped hotel rooms as each suite is actually a 2 bedroom apartment with kitchen, living area, screened in porch and 2 bathrooms. Stackable washer with 2 boxes of Tide detergent also included.

Perhaps you're debating between this and other similar properties in the area. I've stayed in a few so here are some pointers.

Sheraton Vistana: newer, more granite in the units, a little more upscale, but far, far fewer things for kids to do. No organized activities (more on this later)
Holiday Inn orange lake: nicer views outside your window (park like setting) but since each unit is a low rise, the buildings are spread out in a huge area. Actually may have to drive to a pool.
Hilton Vacations: had an original reservation, cancelled it when they couldn't guarantee the 2nd BR had 2 beds (might be wrong on this but I couldn't find info easily on their website so I bailed)

A few things Harbour Lake does better than most:
1- Organized activities. They have a real staff, a real activities office, and a real schedule of things to do (at least this is how they were running it in April '14; maybe different in slow season?). Things like flag football (they had 2 adults helping), karaoke, movies, pool side activities, etc. Nice if you want to get away from your kids a little. Even had a demonstration from a guy from Gatorland, he came out with snakes and alligators and did about a 60 minute presentation.
2- Nicer outdoor play pavilion. 2 basketball courts (1 with lowered hoops so kids can dunk), 18 hole mini golf course (in top condition I might add, with waterfalls, this is no afterthought, a real nice thing), 'big bucket' waterpark, similar to great wolf lodge, 2 pools, full soccer/football field, lake to fish off from, 2 ping pong tables, foosball, outdoor billiards.

Tip; if you arrive early, phone them up. Even if your room isn't ready they will phone you on your mobile phone when it's ready. Plus they have nice locker rooms if you want to use pool etc. Real nice service; makes check in a breeze. In fact, most times I walked thru check in area it was empty (vs Orange Lake which was a mosh pit when we checked in a few years back).

Location: real close to Seaworld. You may have read it's off International Drive. This part of I-drive is slow and not crazy hectic like the portion further north. 15 minutes to Florida or Millenia mall. Publix grocery around 5-10 min away along with International outlets/vineland.

Room Tip: This property has units clustered around multiple pools. Some buildings are 3 story; others 6 story...

We stayed here for only one night in April (at the end of a 2 week vacation following our Disney Cruise).

We had a 2 bedroom that comfortably slept 8 of us (our family + two grandparents). The couch pull out bed was the most comfortable I have seen.

This place is a great place for families (we have kids 11, 9, 7 and 2). They have a number of activities and the pool area is amazing for kids of all ages. Our stay was short but we had a great time. I would definitely consider returning when we go back to Orlando.

It is next to SeaWorld and close to Universal/Disney.

We just had a great 4 night stay. The hotel is in a great location, within 10 min of parking at MK and HS, less than 5min to Sea World. What a deal considering that the per night rate is a fraction of the on-property Disney resorts!! Kids (8,5,2) all loved the pools and facilities. Great meals from the poolside restaurant at very reasonable prices (all 5 ate for less than $50 per night). Full service Starbucks in the morning at the poolside bar is a definite plus. This will be our "home base" for future Orlando trips!!

Room Tip: Go for building 12 or 13, you are right by the pool and restaurant.

My family stayed here in a 2 bed villa for week. We found the the amenities offered were fabulous and absolutely enjoyed every minute. As the other poster mentioned, there were a couple of mishaps in the pool during our stay, the accidents were unfortunate but a very good reminder to always be aware because it only takes a second for something to happen.

The endless amount of activities were great and our children enjoyed the activities they participated in. We used the on site photography option, very pleased and very convenient. Highly recommend for families, this resort is truly a vacation that families can enjoy.

Room Tip: Building 15....very close to the pirate ship pool.
