“Summer Vacation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

For the place we paid, the two bedroom unit with a full kitchen is very good. Housekeeping staff worked hard and were very nice. Some Front Desk staff were very helful. In our case, Tommy Lopez and Lynn Walsh really followed through to help resolve our issues. Thete were two major issues: 1. Although Budgetplaces' s site stating "wi-fi" under "Room Details", there was no wi-fi except at the Front Desk/Lobby & the pool area next to it. They said it's the other "Blue Tree" right next to the Westgate Blue Tree we stayed at. 2. Make sure the hotel honor the deposit you've made with Budgetplaces before paying for your stay. There was some confusion with our reservation and the hotel would not credit us back until we contacted Budgetplaces and stopped bythe front desk presenting the reservatipn/deposit confirmation three times. We notified the hotel and Budgetplaces on the 2nd day of our seven days stay, we finally got our deposit back a week after we check out.


Room Tip: No wi-fi. Carpet was old and dirty. The sofabed mattress was also old and not veey comfortable. The...

Just back from the Blue Trees Resort and would certainly recommend it. Excellent location very close to everything, parks, restaurants, shopping etc but still away from the bustle of International Drive. The condo was very clean, kitchen was excellently appointed with large fridge, micro wave and every other gadget you would need. The pools were excellent with pool basketball and water volley ball. Great for my teenage boys. The bar b q at the pool side was great and kept spotless. The decor in the condo was a bit dated and needs redecoration. The photos on the web site were taken a long time ago. The pull out bed was so easy to use. The laundry room was spotless and very easy to use. The pool towels supplied were great. We had a minor problem with our room safe but the staff were very helpful and allowed us to stay in our condo till early afternoon on the day of departure which was great. The on site facilites were excellent including a very good gym, library, basketball and tennis. Staff were overall very helpful and special mention to Mike at the desk, Charlie and his companion at security and Luis at the pool. Definetly a good choice and well priced. Would stay again.. Paula

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the pool. We were in Block 18.

Just back from the blue tree resort and for my family and requirements this hotel was perfect and for the price is more than what we expected.

perks of the hotel which is free and by free i mean things in previous hotels ive seen me paying for these services

Free great wifi
Free highchairs
Free travel cots
Free local calls
Free ironing board and iron
Free to use safe
Free kids club
Free shuttle bus to parks and back again

This place is home from home the kitchen is stocked with every utensils imaginable tvs in all rooms with cable and dvd player in living room. Rooms are beautiful and very spacious with good supply of hot and cold water, shops can be reached on foot to win dixie and walgreens for a small food shop however if your eating in i would defo recommend a trip to walmart on turkey lake road a taxi cost about $20 but you save this in comparison.

Top tips for travel: hiring a car can work out costing you more as to park at any disney park is $17 per day. There is a shuttle bus from the hotel at 7:35am to magic Kingdom then another bus at 11:25am to hollywood studios and animal kingdom (same bus) where you can get off and get a disney bus to epcot or other disney parks. If none of the buses suit you then the next cheaper option is to catch a taxi to downtown disney at $10 then go to your chosen parks closest resort i.e magic kingdom is next to the contemporary resort from there is a 2min walk to magic kindom saving you traffic stress parking fees and gas costs. The guys at downtown disney are more than happy to tell you what bus to get.

If you want to hit the designer outlets which is cheap as chips then the premium outlet is your place not the lake buena vista factory stores which is more like a flee market. A taxi to premium outlet is about $12.

Staff at the hotel are amazing and a credit to the hotel always on hand to help out with a nice smile and a chat about the area where local shops are etc.

Watch out for:
Long distance calls as its $10 a minute!!
I think people whom are wheelchair bound may have problems due to lack of sloping pavement. Prams buggies wheelchairs and limited mobility it is essential you request a ground floor apartment as there are no elevators.
Towels get changed once a week however if this bothers you just give reception a call they'll send someone up with clean ones. Housekeeping is once a week however clean up at the back of you and this isnt a problem, if you need sheets changed for any reason give them a call and someone will come in and change them :)

Overall i woulf defo recommend this hotel to families.

Money saving: Remember to get your kids eat free cards before you go as sizzlers have a not bad buffet breakfast which is literally on your doorstep. Mcdonalds also accepts these cards as does santa fe cattle which is much further down the road and ci ci's pizza.
If you shop at walgreens or win dixie get a shopping card you save a fortune and the card is instant and free.

The 2 bed apartment was very spacious and was furnished to a high standard. It has a full oven ,microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. We did not have a washing machine in our apartment but there are 2 laundry rooms on site which are well equipped with washing powder and tumble dryers(very reasonable cost to use).
The resort is very close to all attractions and there are 4 pools to chose from. The gym on site is very well equipped. There is a computer room for client use and all rooms have free Wi fi.
The staff are very friendly and willing to help with any enquiries.
I would highly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: We were in block 18 top floor overlooking pool.

Stayed at the Blue Tree Resort for six nights. Called down early to request a room with a washer & dryer and get directions. I don't understand some of the reviews. I was attending a conference and a friend went along to relax and soak up some sun. The people were friendly, got a room with a washer & dryer (small but you don't need a huge family size), and they told me when I pulled in to take the first right to check in for the Blue Tree Resort. Stayed in bulding 12, 3rd floor, and didn't mind the stairs. Only used the elevator on check in and check out for luggage. It was nice having two bedrooms and baths for privacy purposes. The room was very clean. How anyone could complain about the cleanliness I don't know. The kitchen contained everything one needed and all the dishes and pot & pans were clean as well. There was a coffee maker, toaster, and blender. There were flat screen TVs in the living room and small flat screens in each bedroom. I am spoiled with HD TV at home, but that's about the only thing I think could have been improved. We had one night with some noise from those who obviously were enjoying their vacation. That did not bother us. I would stay there again with no problems. Shopping and dining is within walking distance if you like to walk. If not, you can get about anywhere in 5-15 minutes. They have free shuttles to the parks and other activities as well. It's a very good location for Disney, Univeral, and in my case, the Orange County Convention Center.

Room Tip: If there is something specific you want or need just call ahead and ask, if they are able to accommo...

Just back from a week at the Blue Tree Resort. Nice grounds, well kept and friendly staff. Staff is quick to respond to requests and have a lot of useful information. We didn't use them, but they had free shuttles to all the theme parks. Free mini golf, tennis, shuffle board and other scheduled activities. Would stay here again. I would suggest they invest in some new pillows however. Flat and old.
