We went the week after memorial day 2014- so the hotel was not fully sold out and there are still some rooms under construction.
We flew in from Denver so arrived at the hotel at 11- we were starving but all restaurants and bars shut down at 11- so they gave us a card with pizza delivery phone numbers on it. Even If the pool bar or room service had been available- all they serve is pizza! so the food selection is way too limited! They have a big cafeteria with other choices- but it also had the same limited hours.
We had a suite that sleeps up to 6- with 2 Queens and a living area with a pullout couch separated by a sliding pocket door. We had 4 people- 6 would have been tight. The closet is very small
Although we were on vacation, I needed to do some work and attend a couple of conference calls. There was NO quiet are in the entire hotel- my kids were napping so I couldn't take the call from the room and they blare the music from every possible corner of the hotel.
The gift shop did not sell newspapers- which was a source if irritation for my husband
The overall facility was new and clean, but our housekeeping was very limited. We were there for 5 nights, and had to beg for refills on shampoo and conditioner. They never took our used towels unless we put them outside-but they did drop off new towels. We really feel like our tub was never even wiped down during our visit. If we go back to Orlando as a family, we definitely would choose someplace else to stay.
