Reviewed 19 November 2013

My kids are 28 and 21 and we have been going to Disney for well over 22 years, the best vacations always seem to be Disney vacations no matter what age the kids are. We stayed at the Beach Club Villas the last weekend of the Food and Wine Festival and as usual everyone at Disney is friendly and helpful, the Beach Club gives you an easy walk to Epcot and the boardwalk and like all the properties is well maintained. We took a two bedroom villa which was also very clean and well maintained, over the years we stayed at all the resorts but the Beach Club is my favorite it gives me that home feeling. I highly recommend the Food and Wine Festival as the kids get older it gives you another chance to experience another Disney chapter in their lives.

We stayed at The Beach Club DVC Villas from November 3 through November 6, 2013. Jeremy at their front desk was very kind when we checked in with Jenny also assisting us. The resort layout was initially confusing (the easiest thing to do is find the quickest way to the lobby and then go places from there), but we were quite pleased with the location of Villa 136.

It was 1st floor with an easy walk-out to the quiet pool and a hot tub (one of at least four on the property) which truly was quiet the entire time. It was also very close to self-parking and if you are near this area, stop and peek over the bridge into the canal. There are so many huge turtles that love to get bread, pretzels, etc – You will be amazed and entertained by their beauty! The room is also close to the Marketplace which is good for gifts and fast meals.

We are a married couple without children that have enjoyed staying at the following DVC properties that include Aulani, Bay Lake Tower, Saratoga Springs and Old Key West. We have also been hotel guests at The Grand Floridian and The Polynesian many times.

We had tried to stay at Beach Club Villas several times, but it was always booked. This time we were able to get reservations with a Sunday arrival. This property’s location to Epcot and easy launch to Hollywood Studios in addition to the amenities at The Boardwalk Hotel and Yacht Club was a major draw for us.

Unfortunately, this property needs to take advantage of the upswing with the economy and start closing off wings of this DVC property. The common areas are gorgeous and we couldn’t believe they gutted a sunroom off the DVC lobby practically overnight. There appeared to be nothing terribly wrong with this area – their time would have been better spent fixing 2 of the 4 Jacuzzis that weren’t operating the entire time we were there.

Our one bedroom villa was immaculate thanks to the friendly and hard-working housekeeping staff. There is only so much that cleaning can accomplish though. There were paint chips, drink ring stains on furniture, broken cupboards and a broken closet door that were hard to miss. Also the dishwasher was obviously replaced and did not fit or close properly.

Disney World and their hotel properties are always leaders in preserving our environment/conservation, but our showerhead constantly dripped and wasted plenty of water during our 4 days there.

The list was far too long to even bother calling the front desk, but we have emailed this to the hotel in hopes they will address the issue.

We enjoyed the pool area which consists of several inter-connecting pools, a couple of beach areas, two hot tubs and an awesome water slide that you enter from a tower on the pirate ship. It is good for both adults and kids. We also liked Stormalong Bay which would be a hit for all ages. It has a nice beach looking across the water to the Boardwalk.

We loved the swings that are out on the beach portion –just so relaxing plus we had the opportunity to rent a Boston Whaler one morning at The Yacht Club Marina! That provides lovely views of the hotels and you can ride down and back to Hollywood Studios in about one hour. Their water police are always available and helpful if you stall your boat or have a question.

If you are in decent shape, it really isn’t that much of a walk from The Beach Club to Hollywood Studios plus the scenery is beautiful. You will walk along the back of The Boardwalk Hotel and get pretty views of The Swan/Dolphin Hotels, too. You can also walk to Fantasia Gardens or to Epcot.

We used the gym at both Beach Club and Boardwalk since DVC members are allowed and the Boardwalk Gym was far more comfortable temperature-wise while the Beach Club had a great deal more cardio bikes available.

It wasn’t an awful stay and we had always wanted to spend time here – We just wouldn’t rush back. The Boardwalk Hotel and DVC Villas (where we stayed last Fall) are far better maintained and the layout is more inviting plus there is such a variety of restaurants/shops there compared to Beach Club!

Beach Club Villas must see far more traffic with guests/turnover because Beach Club Villas opened in 2002 while Boardwalk Villas opened in 1996 and the Boardwalk Villas appear in far better condition!

Stayed at this resort for Food and Wine October 2013, only because it is so hard to gert into and everyone I know raves about it. I was so disappointed. Firstly, we walked quite a distance to get to Epcot...we were in villa 474..furthest building from the park, closest to parking lot. The room needed lots of love and attention, the wall outside our shower was actually crumbling at the bottom. The whole resort needed attention, lights were out nightly all over the rsort. In fact, few outside lights were on at all at night...porches and walkways. When we checked in the garbage under the bathroom sink was unemptyed and had used feminine products sitting right on top. We promptly put it into the hallway. I just would prefer Boardwalk next time, we are not big pool people and other than the pool, there is nothing there that gets my vote.

Room Tip: Do not let them place you closest to the self parking lot....it is a long walk.

I traveled with 3 girlfriends in August. The decor of the rooms was pretty outdated and actually not as themed as I was anticipating. However, for 4 girls with suitcases that tend to explode after arrival, the layout and size of the room was great. We appreciated the kitchen, pull out bed, etc. We loved the sandy bottom pool- that was awesome. What really made this hotel was the location. We loved being able to walk to the Epcot entrance (between England and Italy) within 5 minutes, take a quick walk to the Boardwalk, and a short boat ride to Hollywood Studios. In the future, I think I'd try a different resort just to switch it up and maybe stay closer to Magic Kingdom or a place with Monorail access. But overall, this resort served it's purpose and we had no complaints!

The Beach Club Villas (or beach club) is the best place to say at Disney. I love being so close to Epcot and all of the great restaurants.. Being able to walk to Epcot, and the Board Walk is so convenient and I like the boat options too. The best part to me is the general atmosphere, it is just a really perfect place to vacation. And did I mention the pool!!!

We loved our Studio Villa for a quick pre-school September getaway. The Stormalong Bay pool was amazing (though a freak rainstorm drove us inside), and the access to EPCOT cannot be beat. We also enjoyed the intimate fun of the smaller DVC pool and hot tub.

The room was equipped with the standard DVC amenities: kitchenette with mini refrigerator, microwave, sink. Queen bed was comfortable, and we received no complaints from our son on the sofabed. We did not notice the wear and tear others have reported - everything in our room was lovely and clean.

Service was impeccable, check-in and out were a dream, parking was easy. Coming back from the parks, there was a giant dispenser of lemon water with cups in the lobby to help everyone cool off - a nice touch.

We just returned home after a full 10 days at Disney and Beach Club Villas. I don't know about some of these reviews. Our room was clean and beautiful. We stayed in a one bedroom and really enjoyed the kitchen and oven/microwave. The shower and bath area were great and we enjoyed the tub to give our kids a bath. We used the fold out queen bed for our kids and my wife and I used the king bed. We had all the pillows we needed, but we needed another blanket and when we asked, it was there in a few minutes. The hair dryer was broken, but was replaced within 10 minutes. We thought the beds were very comfortable. The pool and location to Epcot are amazing!!! I suggest looking at the map of the hotel when you get your room and map out the quickest way to the pool and Epcot. We found a great shortcut. The slide was the best!!! We also had great bus service. We also shopped and got some food from the Marketplace. I would love a little bit more of a selection or a little food court, but what they have was fine. We got some milk and a few odds and ends. It is pricey, but convenient. The lobby and main areas of the beach club were beautiful.

We are counting the days til we can book for next year and then return!!! We love the DVC and our home resort!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 429 (1 bedroom). It was close to elevators, Epcot, and the main lobby. We got ju...
