Not as we remembered!

Pros: The lazy river and outdoor experience around the pool. Live music was pleasing.
The hotel seems a bit tired. Worn carpeting in stairways to pool area, worn, raised, carpeting in room. The lock on the bathroom door was broken in our room. There was no hot water on the morning we left at 6:30 a.m. for showering. Not so sure we will come back. When you pay the per night rate you pay for this hotel you expect these basic amenities to be flawless.

Amazing Stay

Pros: Clean and very accommodating. Amazing stay for family or romantic get away.
Cons: The food pricing was insane. But it was very delicious
Location: Horseback riding, the theme park attractions and Lake Bryan!
Me and a few of my girlfriends wanted a quick get away! The check-in was quick and easy. They staff was friendly and accommodating. The lazy river was amazing and being able to go to the Ritz Carlton next door to use the pool was a plus because at times of course there were a lot of children in the lazy river. I will say that food was really good however very pricey $$$. Housekeeping was prompt and thorough each morning. There was always taxi and car services available which was pricey $$$ however we took Uber. I would definitely come back.

Excellent place to stay in Orlando!

I travel often and this was one of the top locations for staff quality and care! The staff was truly great. The hotel food was excellent and family friendly. The accommodations were comfortable and very clean. The location was perfect in that we were a short shuttle ride from all the Disney Parks and Universal Studios but not too close to be in the constant Disney hustle and bustle. It was like being at a family friendly yet calm and upscale resort.

Family Vacation

We had a wonderful stay at this resort. The food was excellent, the staff very helpful and knowledgeable of the area activities and parks. The lazy river was relaxing just as the resort atmosphere was as well.

Excellent pool and lazy river area

It was a beautiful experience, the free shuttle, friendly staff and beautiful facilities made the trip exceptional. Options for outdoor activities including golfing, boating etc is also a possibility for folks not Disney minded.

Pros: lazy river, pool, comfy beds, beautiful hotel
Location: within 5 minutes to Sea World and Discovery Cove, only a couple minutes to all parks, convenient
We were there for a graduation, got a great price from travelocity.. Hotel is first class, beautiful, very nice pool, great lazy river, friendly staff, beautiful property, beds are very comfortable. Only downfall was the lack of parking.. and having to hike to park.. you should definitely use their valet service to avoid parking problems. Also when you pay for the "resort fee" you can venture next door to the Ritz Carlton and use their facilities too, their pool, kayaks, paddle boats, etc. We will definitely stay there again.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE This place!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, fabulous pools
I just want to live here! The rooms are lovely, I thought my bed at home was comfy, this put mine to shame! I slept so well, it was wonderful! The property is gorgeous and you feel like you are somewhere exotic out at the pool. The food is very good at the Citron where I had breakfast. Lovely buffet, well priced. Staff is great, they even have turn down service with chocolate!! I didn't want to leave!! Free internet in the public areas, not in the rooms though, there is a charge for that.

One of the best hotels of the Orlando area.

Pros: Quiet
The impressive lobby, decor and the aroma of the scent candles mixed with the sound of the water from the gorgeous fountain on an impeccable shined marbled floors makes to this Hotel one of the best to deliver a warm welcome sensation to the guest. Each room nicely decorated and cozy beds. Great room service and turn down at the evenings with a delicious piece of chocolate. The lazy river and pool was a great relief and relaxation after a busy days in the parks. Awesome experience.
