This Westgate resort is right across from the Family Kingdom amusement park and is ocean front. It has a lazy river, lap pool, small hot tub an exercise room. It also has an activities center, and a small arcade. Perfect for families. There is a Friendly's restaurant across the street and you can see the giant sky wheel from the hotel. Our Ocean front room was clean and had a king bed that was comfy, and I slept on the sofa bed and it had a memory foam mattress topper that made even this more comfortable, Pillows were fluffy and we really loved having the stacking washer/dryer so we could wash clothes and take home clean clothes, not piles of dirty. The kitchen had full size appliances and an ice maker in the freezer. The bathroom was in two parts, the toilet and shower in one and the two sink dressing area in the other. The shower has two shower heads and the Jacuzzi was clean and comfortable, The in room safe held both our full size laptops. There was plenty of clothing storage, but not for food. The balcony has 2 chairs and a table. no privacy and no screen door. Someone from the neighboring room can access your balcony, so keep this in mind for safety! The balcony and the main door have good locks on them and even though there was security in the parking lot at night, you should always be on the safe side anywhere. They have wifi and a very small business center. Could use more computers here.
There is a restaurant and bar. We had room service the first night, and though it was limited, it was hot and ok price wise.
The resort is less than five miles from the mall and outlets and lots of restaurants. There is a concierge desk and the only complaint was lack of parking. So if you have company, they may have to park elsewhere as owners at this time share get priority. Negotiating the halls with the luggage carts can be a bit of a challenge as the connector from building one to two is a zig zag a few feet long. Handicapped accessible, Check out is at 10 am. Sharp. It was quick, but no receipt and when I had something faxed, they did not give me a confirmation, The top of the parking deck is an unsightly mass of an unfinished second level and has rebar sticking up several feet in the air, so it either needs to be finished, which is really needed, or cut off the rebar and make it less of an eyesore. The pool area is shielded from sight by decorative mesh walls, which is nice and all the gates lock, so small kids are safer. The beach is very big and nice with handicapped beach wheelchairs available, kudos for this The north tower is refurbishing some of it's public areas as of this review. Don't know what they are planning. (a spa, maybe? or an indoor pool would be nice ) We are owners every other year and this was our first stay and we were very pleased. Staff was friendly and responsive.
