“Very pleased- USEFUL INFO- PLEASE READ”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

We were so pleased with our choice to stay at this resort.

We stayed in a ‘B’ room, which has a king sized bed and all the amenities you could possibly want.

The whole apartment is just so spacious.

On arrival you will need to supply a $100 deposit which is only a hold and at the end of your stay you will need to pay a $3.99 a night taxes and fees charge.

Wi-Fi worked perfectly in the room and there was no charge to use the computers near reception, which also had a free-to-use printer which was useful for printing our boarding cards.

We could also make local and national calls completely free of charge from the room which was extremely useful.

We used public transport to get everywhere. The link number 50 bus stops right outside the resort every 30 minutes, although if I was to do this trip again, I would rent a car as their public transport system is not the best. Nevertheless we managed it for 2 weeks.

We never really had the time to use the outdoor swimming pool, but it looked reasonable. The outdoor whirlpool never seemed to be working though. We even let the receptionist know early on in the holiday but it never got resolved. This was not really an issue for us though as there is one in the room anyway.

The maid service is not free of charge unless you are staying more than 4 nights. Towels are not changed every day; you have to specifically ask them to be changed, as is the same situation for bins. You can either put the rubbish outside in bags which will be collected during the day or you can ask someone to collect it for you. The maid tidied up our apartment after 7 days, so basically in a 2 week stay we had one tidy up. This was sufficient for us as we are a couple, although I can see how this might feel inadequate to a larger family.

The location is really good especially if you are visiting the Disney Parks and Downtown Disney. It is fairly close to all of them and not far from SeaWorld either. The Universal parks are slightly further away, but within a reasonable distance.

There is small retail park on the opposite side of the road which has a convenience store (where we purchased all our food and drink from) and quite a few places to eat such as Hooters, Dominos Pizza, Cici’s Pizza, Kobe’s Japanese Steakhouse, a Chinese takeaway, an Indian restaurant and an Irish pub.

We loved being able to wash and dry our clothes after hot sticky days in the parks.

We loved the choice of being able to jump in the bathroom’s whirlpool tub. (Although I can’t see how someone who is disabled would access the tub/shower).

We loved having a spacious kitchen with the option to make our own meals. Even the fridge is massive.

We never heard any of the so-called noise you can apparently hear through the so-called thin walls.

All in all we really loved this place.

This is the first time I have stayed here and I would definitely stay here again. You cannot beat the location. It's literally 5 mins away from entrance to the Disney property and very close to Downtown Disney. It's in between Disney and Universal, so it's great. There were a ton of different restaurants in the area as well to choose from. The only complaint I have is the air conditioning. It was kind of loud and as past guests have stated, the shower is tricky. Other than that, no complaints.

On the plus side: Suites are large, full kitchen (even has a blender), Great location, Very pretty landscaping.

On the minus side: The walls are paper thin (I can hear every word my neighbors say, every door they close, every shower); Buildings are older, furniture is dated, comforter on bed is old; pool is small and was typically crowded.

I'm an author and stayed by myself to write--so it was fine for my purposes. But I wouldn't want to bring my family here.

We booked here on the recommendation of a family member that is a travel agent. He got us a great rate. LOCATION is AMAZING! Right next to Downtown Disney and minutes from the parks. Rooms were lovely and very spacious. Jacuzzi tub was amazing, but takes awhile to fill up!! LOL. Only complaint is the queen sofa bed/couch is HORRIBLE!! They need to either invest in an upgrade or put another mattress in it!!!

The staff was very friendly and the grounds we very very nice and very clean. The bathroom had a huge jacuzzi tub and the bedroom and kitchen we generous. I only got to stay one day but I wish I got to stay longer. Its very close to Disney and very easy to access all the attractions. I went for my anniversary and it is a great romantic place from couples!

We booked a 3 bedroom unit (a combination of 2 one bedroom units - the smaller unit living room being a sitting room that had a mini-kitchen and a hide-a-bed - thus the third bedroom) and were impressed. The combination unit is advertised to sleep 10 and could do so with available bedding; however, it is much better for 6-8. The resort recently installed complimentary wi-fi in the units which is nice. The facility is older but well maintained and clean. The kitchens have been remodeled but could be better equipped - cooking utensil-wise - but what was provided was adequate. Our only issue, and one which does not apply to everyone, was that both bathrooms had jacuzzi tubs and the oldest member of our party (87) had some difficulty bathing/showering due to difficulty in getting into the tubs. Bathing a small child in either tub would be awkward. The Lake Buena Vista site has very few organized activities and advises visitors that all the facilities at the Kissimmee location are available for use - we did not take advantage of that benefit as we were more interested in peace and quiet after 10-12 hours in theme parks each day. The location - just outside the "Downtown Disney" area - was wonderful. Overall, a very good stay that we recommend - particularly if you are not interested in a resort with constant activity.
