“Just what we needed with minor problems.”
Reviewed 18 April 2009

Bought into this timeshare years ago and have never stayed until now. My in-laws and one sister-in-law and her family stayed last year and loved it. It is a VERY large property but beautifully landscaped. Golf course runs through the property towards the main entrance area. We stayed in Congress Park with it's own pool/spa area. Loved it for the fact that it was not overcrowded. Visited the main pool once (way too crowded) and appreciated Congress Park pool even more! Since we came without our daughter this trip, the studio was just fine. The room was adequate sized but could have been a bit bigger. Buy/bring your own coffee/creamer since you get one pack of complimentary coffee and several small packs of coffee condiments. We had a metallic smell in the room that didn't go away with the doors opened. Our room faced Downtown Disney and the river. Loved the view of Downtown Disney at night with all the lights (minimal noise heard from Downtown Disney). Easy 5 minute walk to the restaurant and store. Didn't like the eggs at breakfast (the only time we ate breakfast the whole trip). My husband loved the sandwiches and I loved the salads! The House salad with the lemon-poppyseed dressing was awesome! The Spa was nice and massage was just what I needed on the day it rained midway through our trip. Hospitality area available near main pool for those with a later flight after check out. Will stay again but possibly in a bigger room.

This is a HUGE property. The grounds and beautiful and the pools look nice. We stayed in a studio and thought the rooms were terrible (Small and depressing, old furnishings). No room service available and there is only one full service restaurant and one self service restaurant on the property(did I mention it was huge). The full service restaurant had no availability for dinner. If you did not rent a car or have dinner reservations - good luck!!! We stayed in a friends DVC and beware if there are not enough towels in the room they do not give them out willingly. Everything costs extra (extra soap, etc). The buses are crowded. If you are not staying at one of the Disney properties with the monorail you might as well stay outside and save yourself a few dollars.

This is our second visit exchanging with Interval International. Our condo was very nice, but the second location looked at parking lot while the first time we overlooked the lake. Transporation was convenient to the condo. The accommodations was upscale with a separate bedroom, huge bath with jetted tub and shower in another part of bath. Kitchen had granite counters and most of the usual upscale items. No HD TV's but we didn't really need that. It was expensive paying for the internet as I needed every day. . .that added another $70 to the $129 resort fee and the $149 trading fee.

All and all, it was a nice stay and I would recommend.

Our second visit here following purchase of Disney points.

The complex is large now and fully open. It is very clean although there were times when the Disney dream fell short. We required special cleaning of the apartment but this was not done and a lingering smell would not go away. The main bedroom backed onto the ice machine and a constant drone could be heard.

The holiday was never spoilt and Disney always lives up to its good reputation but on occasions could do a little better.

This was our second stay at Saratoga Springs. We love this place, Clean, safe, spacious and comfortable.
Large rooms, well appointed. Turf restaurant serves the best steak we've ever had. Swimming pools are grand.
The grounds are large and very well landscaped - some lovely walks here.
We will be back!
Complementary busses to other Disney sites and parks makes for a relaxing time.

I really question the management of an organization that closes the main pool of one of their largest resorts for three weeks in peak season. Closure wasn't noted on the website when I booked last August, happened to find out about it at the last minute so requested a Villa in Congress Park section (which had it's own smaller pool and was closest to Downtown Disney).

Proximity to Downtown Disney is the main thing Saratoga has going for it, and even that's not saying as much as it would be if Pleasure Island nightclubs were open. Living area in the 2 BR Villas were much smaller than at Old Key West, and gave one the impression of staying in a sterile, corporate apartment instead of at a resort. Food at the Artists Pallette was terrible, cardboard sandwiches & flatbreads--kids couldn't finish their food and neither could I. Turf Club restaurant/lounge looked nice, but who knows if it really was--restaurant was only open from noon-9 pm. Spa was nice but pricey, & they try to push their expensive products on you when treatment is over.

On the positive side, bus service was fine, and we got to all the parks quite quickly/efficiently. Bedrooms were also spacious and comfortable.

But to repeat, what amazed me most was that for the peak season rates I paid, the main pool was not open. Disney must be hiring ex-Wall Streeters to schedule their resort maintenance.

Next year I'll stay at Old Key West again, or check out the new Animal Kingdom Villas or Beach Club. Staying here once would be okay, IF you're in Congress Park and like Downtown Disney, but I for one will not be repeating.

We Stayed at Saratoga for 6 nights and it was ok. The 1sr room they put us in a dark studio overlooking the parking lot? And it could not have been further away from the main pool and main buildings. (We complained and moved the next day to stido that was much closer thankfully!) The bus service was good, the main pool was open and really fun but we were dissapointed in the restaurants. Very expensive at the "store" and the counter service meals were awful and to the dismay of our kids....no french fries served at all? I have an allergy to down pillows and asked for one that was not down- Housekeeping argued with me- and continually told me that they didn't carry feather/down pilows. Finally they sent up a new pillow. ( Which I showed to the maid the actual "feathers" tag on the pillow and she was like Ohhh ok.) Could care less-
All in all it was ok- but we won't rush back here. We actually liked staying at the Riverside better
