Reviewed 11 June 2008

We had two couples in a two bedroom suite. We loved the accomadations. The staff was pleasant and responded promptly to our many, many phone calls. The one disadvantage was laundry facilities were on every other floor. But, who goes on vacation to do laundry? We found the location to be convenient to most of our typical Orlando activities.

Reviewed 15 March 2008

My wife and I booked our stay at Kingstown Reef through our RCI Points timeshare. Our home resort with RCI is a gold crown, and in RCI's guide Kingstown is listed as a silver crown. We wanted something a little ways out International Drive, something nice and not over run, but not extravagant at the same time.

The name is a bit confusing, as it is actually WorldMark by Wyndham, Kingstown Reef at Orlando, on the same site as Crowne Plaza Resort, 12000 International Drive (although Crowne Plaza is technically 12150 Int'l Drive). If you are shuttling to the airport, Mears Transportation used the Crowne Plaza as the pick up point. Once you enter the property, Kingstown is to your right, and Crowne to your left.

It is a nice, well landscaped, quiet location, conveniently located at I-Ride trolley stop 37 south. The nearest store is a 7 Eleven up the road. It is remarkably close to SeaWorld. Further back toward SeaWorld is a Publix grocery store. After the first day, we each bought a 3 day, $5 pass for the I-Ride, which between walking was our only mode of transport.

As far as resorts go, it is on the small side, with two main buildings, Gables and Veranda. Both seemed to be half full or less, most likely due to our early March stay (prior to spring break). We had no nearby neighbors - every night was quiet. There is a guest building/check in, with a small gift shop, computer station for use, and ticket purchase desk for attractions. We found the staff to be pleasant and helpful. The pool, which you can see in previously posted photos, is adjacent to the reception building.

Since we planned to be out every day, and to use less points, we booked the smallest double bed room, which was clean and efficient with a balcony. Housekeeping fees for the stay was an additional $24, paid upon arrival, although the housekeepers won't visit unless you ask. There is not a restaurant on site, but the Pineapple Grill is within the Crowne Plaza (a more upscale property), which was casual, had good service and tasty food. They also appeared to be very underbooked, but had a business convention scheduled.

After an enjoyable 4 night stay, we decided to go back next year around the same time to Kingstown Reef. If we stay a bit longer, we will probably up the room size.

  • Liked — An escape from the hubbub - a bit off the beaten path

Booked this through RCI.

It is listed as a Gold Crown Resort. I don't know who rated it, but it is WAY below the standards at the Hilton Grand Vacations just down the street which is also a Gold Crown Resort.

This place is only average, we were completely unimpressed. The resort is dated and small. We had reserved a 1 BR for only 1 night. It is okay for an evening but there are far better resorts and hotels for a longer stay at the same price. I think the additional charge of $50 for housekeeping for one night was excessive.

I rate it about a C, maybe a C+.
