So much yes!

There are really not enough great things I could say about this place, especially if you have children. We barely needed to leave the resort and when we did, everything was really close by. We loved the water areas and pools, the water slide, putt putt, the arcade, and the nature. The villa was fantastic-spacious yet homey (multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, full kitchen, huge dining room table, washer/dryer) . The staff was great. The fish tacos were so unbelievable-I had them twice in 4 days :) Poolside bars for the grownups and alot of different activities (they had a gentleman from Gatorland in with some cool creatures at one point). This is a really great, laid-back place that feels really secluded - and it's gated so you get the pleasure of having someone say "Welcome Home" each time you enter lol.

Marriott's Harbour Lake, Orlando

Superb location, close to the many Orlando area attractions providing a quiet location to unwind after busy day activities.  We stayed a week and wish that we had stayed a second.  There are plenty of activities and amenities for the entire family.  You can cook in or enjoy any of the many quality restaurants within a few minutes drive from the resort.

Best hotel we've stayed in

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, warm pool, friendly helpful staff, great activities
This hotel had it all-- spacious suites, friendly staff, warm pools, lots of kids activities and perfect location. We go to Orlando frequently, but will always stay at this hotel from here on.

We"ll go back - it was wonderful

Pros: Free Internet, very clean, friendly employees, fully equipped, near the freeways - easy to go everywhere
Cons: sometimes it was hard to find a parking spot
I chose this hotel based on reviews of others and the photos on the website. It far surpassed our expectations; we were very happy with the accommodations, the cleanliness, the convenience and all the amenities. Our family rarely travels, and when we do we go for economy because we have very little extra money for vacations. I booked this hotel as a package with our flight and car rental, and received an excellent rate for such a nice place! Our kids are 21 & 18, boy and girl. They had their own room -with separate beds -and bathroom; their room had it's own TV. My husband loved the "waterfall" showerhead in our bath. The hotel had a lot of activities planned for each day, and even though our kids were too old for a lot of them, if they had been younger they would have enjoyed them. We spent one afternoon as a family, around the pool area. There are 2 nice pools with waterslides and sprays - neither got too deep and there was plenty of room to be in the pool without being near the sprayers if you didn't care for them. There were ramps & railings for entry and both pools were heated. plenty of lounge chairs! Snacks are close by, pool toys were available to buy if you wanted a float or something. All the employees were friendly, and the grounds were very clean. There was a drugstore down the road, and a grocery nearby. We bought food for our breakfasts and snacks. the kitchen was fully equipped - plates, cooking pots and utensils, casserole dishes, a blender, etc. Soap and dishtowels, dishwasher & soap. There was a washer/dryer, also with soap provided. We came home with clean clothes! "Tidy care" was available with our package - this is a light daily cleaning & bed making. The room was as big as our own home; lots of room to spread out and relax and, if you are traveling with other families, to gather. I would gladly recommend this place to anyone! :-)

Couple without children stay

While we enjoyed eating breakfast from our own private lanai, soaking up the sun by the two well appointed pool areas and the prompt friendly service we received, we found the sound proofing between rooms to be inadequate. During our stay, we had a family with two small boys staying next door and were disappointed that we could clearly hear most of their early morning chatter. That being said. I've already recommended this facility to family members and friends with small children.

Great for Family of Five

Our unit had plenty of space which allowed much needed space after 11 hours of Disney each day. The beds were very comfortable, and though we never used the kitchen, it seemed nice enough. Being able to do laundry in the unit was a big plus for us. Though we went in mid January, the kids (age 9, 11, & 12) made use of the heated pool and loved the pirate ship play area. The water was comfortably heated and stayed open fairly late.

We stayed here for 3 nights, and it was fabulous. The grounds were so cozy with cobble stone walkways, and the resort felt very safe. The pools were beautiful and heated to a nice temperature. There is a basketball court, fooseball, pool and pingpong. We loved our stay and would come again! We were less than 5 minutes from Sea World and only 15 minutes from Universal.. (an easy drive too )

Kids Paradise

We stayed here with 4 adults and 2 little girls, aged 6 and 1. We really enjoyed our stay and were very sad to have to leave. We loved the fact that this is a gated community. This made us feel very safe with our kids. \nThis resort is very close to Sea World and short drive up Turkey Lake Drive to Universal Studios. \nIf you have kids, this resort has it all. My girls loved the pools. One with a pirate ship and the other with a waterslide. \nThe have a sport court with 4 basketball hoops, and also an area with 2 pool tables, 2 ping pong tables, and a foosball table. Also a mini golf course on site. There is an activity center for the kids with a few video games. We loved the surroundings, very laid back and were never bugged about time share things. The staff was very helpful and always had a smile and a hello for us. \n \nKeep in mind that this resort is very much themed for kids and if you are a kid in heart you will have a blast with your little ones. If not, you've been warned...

Vacation with my mother-in-law

My husband and I brought our 3 year old and my mother-in-law along on this trip. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo was perfect for us and we consider ourselves hotel snobs. It gave us plenty of room and having two bedrooms allowed Grandma and the little one to go to bed earlier when they needed to. The weather was a bit chilly but we still had fun in the pool. The resort even offers a great playground for kids. Would definitely stay here again!
