We stayed here Spring Break 2014 as a base for Universal Studios. The condo we had was ENORMOUS. There were only 4 of us, and 8 could have easily fit. The master bath was huge and had a nice whirlpool bathtub. We were next to the tiny pool, which I liked, but the kids would want to be close to the bigger pool at the clubhouse. They offer a free shuttle up to Marriott World Center and the big pool and water park (extra fee) up there as well as a tiny "amusement" area inside. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the whole resort was spic and span. This resort is very close to Disney, so it is an excellent base of operations for those parks.
The only drawbacks: 1) They advertise free WiFi. It is indeed free, but the service is terrible. It was spotty at best and there was no way to download anything, much less stream any videos on your device. The staff seemed stressed out about WiFi discussion, so I didn't complain too much about it. 2) Stray cats? Or resort cats? I am a HUGE animal lover, and I'm happy that there are resident cats on the property. I understand that depopulating central Florida of feral cats is an impossible task, so I just wonder if the management should take a bold leap and consider a T-N-R program for these babies. They are clearly young and from the same family, and many are friendly. The kids asked a million questions about whether someone was feeding and taking care of the cats. They are hanging around the resort and people were interacting with them, so I assume they are being fed somehow. Please take the extra step of having them neutered before you end up with an out of control problem.
