Lake Buena Vista Resort Village & Spa
Ranked #94 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Reviewed 16 June 2012 via mobile

Literally just got home from Orlando and the Lake Buena Vista Resort & Spa hotel.This hotel has everything you need,a fantastic pool,gym,small supermarket,and an Irish pub/restaurant right across the road.The staff at reception were very attentive and very helpful.The room we had was on the 3rd floor in building 5 and catered for myself & my wife,daughter & her b/f ,and son.The room itself was huge and the bedrooms had plenty of space.We had a washing machine & dryer and well equipped kitchen.Everything was spotless and I honestly cannot find fault.The only thing I found annoying was that unless you are going to a theme park and have a shuttle bus included in the ticket to pick you up from the hotel,you will need to get a taxi from the hotel for everything else as a regular bus route does not go anywhere near the hotel and the taxi bill soon starts to add up.That aside I would thoroughly recommend the Buena Vista for families and couples alike.

We stayed here for one night in May 2012 in the 3 bedroom 2 bathroom suite. We have stayed here 2 or 3 times before always with a good experience. This was no exception. The furnishings are very pretty and modern. The kitchen appliances may be a little less so, but still nice-no complaints. Our two teenage/college aged daughters and their two friends were impressed, commenting on how nice everything was. Nice bathrooms and good bathroom towels. Plenty of space! About 7 to 10 minutes with light traffic to downtown disney; probably about the same to the disney parks. We stayed in one of the buildings nearest the pirate ship pool. Really lovely accomodations; my only complaint, that I did mention to the front desk upon check out, is that the pillows,all the pillows, were super firm. It was strange really because I don't remember that the last times we were there. The front desk told me that they had received other similar comments and were in the process of changing them over...? Well, we were all tired enough that it did not seem to interrupt our sleep for the one night we were there, but it was worth a mention. I would still give this condo/villa style apartment a 5 star rating, especially if you are staying more days and wish to stay in, use the pool, and eat a few meals in.

Room Tip: Building 5 is closest to the pirate pool.

I wasn't expecting much because this was a great price but I was thrilled with this place for my family. If you have a car stay here. Driving to Disney is a great choice if your bringing kids and strollers. Warning your kids may not want to go to Disney once they see the pool.
They are restaurants on site that will deliver. And our master had a big jacuzzi tub and the shower had great pressure.
I do plan on staying here again.

Stayed at this resort in May/12 for 5 nights in a 2 bedroom suite in bldg 5. This resort is very well looked after both inside and outside. The grounds are well manicured with lots of beautiful flowers. The pool area is great, with a pirate ship slide. There is also another pool between bldgs 1 & 2. Frankie Farrell's Irish pub is a great place to eat...we had the Fish & Chips...it was the BEST we have ever had. Factory outlet shopping right on the premises.

Suite was very beautiful...guite spacious with nice furniture. Beds very comfortable...no problems with the bedsheets as in previous reviews.

Had only one minor issue...balcony railing soiled with bird feces. Requested cleaning at least twice, but was never done. Eventually tried to clean it off ourselves but did not do a good job as we did not have right cleaner

Overall a great place to stay. Would recommend to everyone and would definitely stay here again

Room Tip: Get discount coupons from hotel for the factory outlet stores.

Just came back from our trip and I have to say this was the best resort we have stayed at in Orlando. The kids loved the large pool with the Pirate ship and the large three bedroom we stayed in had a great view of the Disney fireworks at night. The Outlet Mall next door to the resort has some great discounts stores and this was helpful during our downtime away from the kids. I would recommend this resort to families and we will book our next trip there for sure.

My family and I recently stayed at lake buena vista resort. We were extremely happy with everything they had to offer. The staff was extremely exceptional. Very eager to accommodate. I actually never have written a review on any place we've gone or visited but I was so pleased with our stay here I wanted to share with others thinking of staying at this resort. Especially with small children. myn loved it!

Arrived at resort at 02.20 am and the staff couldn't have been more helpful from the reception staff to the security guard who managed to remove the ignition key from my hire car when i couldn't.The suite I stayed in had everything from a shower and separate bath to a washing machine 3 TVs.Breakfast was provided just across the road and was very good. The pool was clean. The car park was secure was very well lit. The other good security feature was that you had to put your room key in a reader in the lift to get up or down to the floor you needed. As with all of Florida you will need to have a hire car,a shuttle bus service is available but has to be booked 24 hours in advance.

Room Tip: ask for a pool view on an upper floor
