Reviewed 29 January 2014

We had booked a one bedroom for a week and upon arrival, we found out we had been upgraded to a 2 bedroom. The rooms (recently refurbished) still had a dated look but it did not matter to us as they were spotless and very spacious.
We were there in January 2014 and the weather was very cold, good thing the main pool was heated to 90 degrees (I checked it with a thermometer that I bring everywhere). There was a mini put that we did not use as it was so cold.
The staff were EXTREMELY nice and helpful. We would go back there in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the pool and it was great.

Although it had one or two flaws it was generally a great place to stay for the duration of our holiday. We had a one bed flat with pull out bed on the couch in the sitting room, with a little kitchen tucked away in the corner of the sitting room and one toilet. I slept in the bedroom, the bed was quite comfortable, we had a little balcony in our room so when it got too warm it was nice to open the door up for some cold air. Bedroom had its own tv which was a nice touch so we had 2 tv's in the flat. We were in the far away corner of the resort, but the swimming pool was just right outside our door. Thankfully the people above us weren't noisy so we got a good nights sleep most nights. The flats are very small but this is what I was expecting, you could tell that from the photos. The pool area was fantastic, as we were leaving early each morning we would be in the pool pretty early and it would always be free of people, so it was like having our own personal pool for the duration of the trip, there was plenty of sun loungers and the pool is heated so it was very pleasant. The people at the front desk were also very helpful, if theres anything you need go and ask them they are great. The only real issues I had with the property was the WiFi does not work, if you have a flat nearer the front desk it may work better but where we were it just wouldn't work, they need to sort out the WiFi its a must have necessity. One day we found a cockroach in our cupboard, which isn't something you want to find, but we got rid of it thankfully. The main sittingroom was a very dark room too, not much light could get in. The bus service is great because its free but you are very limited as they can only pick you up and drop you off once at each park each day so you only have a limited time at the parks. I can't enphisise this point enough but if you have a drivers licence and can drive then DO IT! We made the mistake of having to rely on public transport and taxi's and its the biggest mistake we made, we ended up hiring a car after 4 days as the taxis in Orlando are shockingly bad.

I would recommend this resort to a friend, thanks for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: If you want good WiFi signal get a room close to the check in desk, its the only place the wifi can...

Stayed at SPM Blue Tree Resort for 6 nights at the beginning of our vaction and 2 nights at the end. Blue Tree staff were brilliant, check in was quick and they came to fix our door 5 minutes after we reported a fault with it. The resort is close to Disney and Premium Outlet Mall so perfect for what we needed. The room was clean and in good repair,bed was really comfy and the balcony big enough for two. We were in building 12 which was close to the heated pool which we used several times, this again was very clean and perfectly heated. I would use Blue Tree again when we visit.

Room Tip: Block 12 is close to the heated pool and balcony's are not overlooked

My sister in law invited us to stay in her time share condo here during the Disney marathon weekend. It definitely exceeded expectations. Although it's a condo, it's resort-like with a very warm heated pool and tropical setting. The condos feature a full kitchen, comfortable living area, and private bedrooms with comfy beds and attractive furnishings. I felt pampered. There is a large grocery within a block, plus pharmacy, and many chain restaurants. It's also a stone's throw from Downtown Disney and a very easy 10-15 minute drive to Disney parks. The timeshare is a great value for the full week visit.

We recently stayed for 8days/7nights in Building 2 in a 2br/2ba unit. We were blown away by the unit...spacious, nice kitchen, well-appointed, & very CLEAN! Our unit also had a washer/dryer which was fabulous for our family of five. We enjoyed the facility amenities like the pools & hot tubs. We also played mini golf and Ping-Pong during our stay. There were also many planned activities for kids that seemed really fun (we did not do any of these activities because we did not get back in time from parks/beaches).

The entire resort was very well kept and clean. And the staff was very helpful and polite! We felt very safe because of the frequent presence of security personnel.

The location was ideal. It was very close to Disney, Sea World, & not far from LEGOLAND and the beaches!

I HIGHLY recommend Blue Tree Resort! We can't wait to go back!

There are two great things about this resort:
1. LOCATION: very close to Disney and very close to restaurants and a Winn Dixie. Giordano's pizza is right next door too.
2. POOL TEMP - the heated pool was so warm. So wonderful. Even my 10 month old could go in there when it was in the 60s outside. I would stay here again in winter just for the pool temps...

Not so good:
1. INTERNET - our building (15) was on the fringe and we could NEVER EVER connect. Ever. We literally had to go to the courtyard to get on the internet but still we went over our data limits b/c we would get bounced off.
2. STINKY - we got in very late, after midnight, and the first thing as we go to our room is this awful sewage smell. It thankfully was only in a couple places outside but it was a terrible first impression for us.
3. ROOM QUALITY - not so good.
-My daughter is crawling and her socks and pants were filthy from the carpet every single time she crawled.
-Our sliding glass door didn't really slide - always stuck.
- Our room was ALWAYS humid. I had a swimsuit that didn't dry in four days.
-Personally I don't like the outside corridor to the rooms.
-LOUD - we could always tell when people were coming and going.

Just spent 5 fabulous nights at the Blue Tree Resort at Lake Beuna Vista. We have been coming here off and on for the past 21 years. We had not been in several years and were very pleased with the upkeep and upgrades they've made. When in the Orlando/Disney area, we have not stayed anywhere else since finding this resort many years ago. We spent most of our time at the Disney Parks; therefore we did not take advantage of the activities at the resort...however, there were many planned for each day even though it was in the midst of the Holidays. We were there
over New Years. Even though the resort was sold out while we were there, it was very quiet and
we got a good night's sleep each night. This is a great resort for families or couples. It is within walking distance of several restaurants and a very short drive to shopping, Disney Parks, Sea World, and other area attractions. They even offer shuttle bus service to all the major parks and even to the Outlet Shopping Center nearby. They have a concierge service at the resort to take care of purchasing all of your attraction tickets and even offer discounts on some attractions. With 4 pools, tennis, shuffleboard, putt putt golf, volleyball, movie rentals and planned activities each day, there is plenty to do at the resort should you just need a getaway and not want to take in any of the parks or attractions.
Just a word of caution, a portion of the resort is managed by Westgate (I WOULD NEVER DEAL WITH WESTGATE BASED ON A VERY NEGATIVE PAST EXPERIENCE). You want to make sure you are dealing with SPM management who handle 70% of the units.

Room Tip: If you cannot climb stairs, you need to be sure to ask for a unit with elevator accessibility. Ther...
