Bluegreen Fountains Resort
Ranked #131 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Reviewed 7 May 2012

Let me start off by saying that if you have a reasonable amount of money to spend on a 2 week holiday to Orlando, then look no further than the Fountains. Located just outside the main hustle and bustle of International Drive and minutes away from Seaworld. Access to the theme parks is almost too easy with daily buses and taxis/shuttles running from outside the reception for reasonable prices.

The room was fantastic. King sized bed, a jacuzzi and great views of the lake every morning from our balcony. the TV had plenty of cable channels and the staff were always willing to be at your beck and call when needed through the dedicated room service team. They seemed to have the uncanny knack of giving you a 5* experience, even though you haven't paid for it. This high level of customer service will always have you coming back year on year.

The site itself is massive, yet has all the amenities you could wish for. Reasonably sized gift shop with over-priced foreign news papers, a bar with a large selection of beers and a reception staffed with the most gorgeous of Canadian receptionists. The gym was clean and nicely air conditioned and the pool was fantastic. You are treated to plenty of space outside to sunbathe, or you can walk/golf cart the lucious surroundings of the resort (highly recommended at sundown)

Location. If you're a first time driver in the US then this resort is perhaps one of the easiest to get too. Outside of the resort, apart from the parks, there are numerous shopping outlets within minutes in the car, a 7-11 for those late night emergency cigarette trips, and a fantastic array of amenities along the main strip of I-drive by the convention centre, (I'd suggest the upside-down house) Plenty of themed restaurants await you, as well as the more traditional places such as McDonalds and Burger King.

All-in-all, this is one of the few places that has something for everyone. Young or old, able bodied or not, you'll have a fantastic time at the fountains. Well worth the money.

Room Tip: The elevators where some what loud, so maybe avoid getting a room by the elevator shaft.

The resort is GREAT! We have two pre-teen boys and they have been going non-stop, whether its the wakoola springs pool or waters edge pool or even the numerous events/activities they have going on. In fact, we had tickets to universal studios and islands of adventure and after visiting islands of adventure, the boys asked if we could wait to go to universal studios until later on in the week so that they could hang out at the resort. I am one of those people that look at reviews for everything before we do it and I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical after reading some of the negative reviews. I am sooo thankful we didn't listen and decided to come anyways. Just goes to show you, there must be some really up-tight picky people out there. This is by far our most favorite blue-green resort!

*NOTE-if you have children, I highly recommend going to Wonder Works "Outta Control Magic/Dinner show. This was a highlight of our trip!

Room Tip: Building 2 is great. Directly centered between both pools and the club house!

we stayed at the other blurgreen time share place in orlando but there was only a small pool so they gave us free parking and day access to the grounds at the fountains .. the hotel is amazing and big.. the pool seems like it will never end it is so big everyone was well behaved and they have kids pool and scheduled activities for adults and kids ... we are able to rent towels and they have nice lawn chairs to lounge in

drinks are ok for price but overall you feel spoiled when laying out on the grounds of the fountains next time i would try and stay at this one

We purchased a vacation from Bass Pro. We stayed here for four nights and had to participate in the time share presentation.

Our room was just like the picture, beautiful. It was clean, quiet and new. We looked at the beautiful pool but did not have time to go swimming. We enjoyed our entire stay here. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here with my family and inlaws, thanks to my mother and father inlaw who are owners at this resort. About 10 minutes from Disney, near Seaworld. Our whole extended family had a great time. 2 bedrooms with balcony over looking a nice lake with lots of fish. Great pools. All the necessary amenities.

An upscale condo with everything you need to stay in Orlando. I'm really picky and would stay here again in a second. It was so nice to come back to a super clean condo after a long day at the theme parks.

Tip: We booked this room (gottohalfit.com) and thought we were getting 3 nights at the Hilton Garden Inn (3 night $99). However this was much better than a hotel room and worked out great. We even added a night for $99.

Downside:
Just remember that you have to go through a 3 hour sales pitch to buy one week time share here for ten years and they try to suck you out of $250,000.00. YES, a quarter of a million dollars they want to stay here for ten weeks over ten years. NO JOKE. Nevertheless, we had a great stay for $99 price and feel really bad for the people that get brainwashed and buy a timeshare.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Set within 54 acres surrounding the serene natural setting of Lake Eve, and located along popular International Drive, The Fountains offers everything you would expect from a world-class resort as well as the convenience of a central location. The Fountains has its own claim to fame- Bluegreen's Wakoola Springs. This 75,000-square-foot tropical oasis sets itself apart from an everyday pool with two water slides*, a zero-entry pool, interactive water fountains, two hot tubs. Cross over the two bridges on the campus and head over to one of two fire circles for evening stargazing and relaxation. With so many on-site amenities for both adults and kids, not to mention the hundreds of attractions in and around Orlando, you'll want to plan an extended stay to fit it all in. Our two-bedroom villas are richly appointed with all the comforts of home—and then some. Most feature a screened balcony overlooking the lake, a fully equipped kitchen and a garden tub. The decor is elegant and tasteful with many focused on water, lake or pool views. ... more   less
