Room was great!

Pros: The location and the amenities. The pools were awesome, and there were enough pools for all ages. Grounds were very nice.
Cons: Shower could have been a little cleaner, and different a blanket on the bed.
Location: Close to Disneyland.
The resort had everything imaginable to have a perfect vacation. There were activities for every day all day long if you chose to do them. The only thing that we did not like is the heavy plastic cover between the comforter and the bed sheet. It was too hot and bulky, and seemed like it should be over the mattress as a cover instead of being used as a blanket. Wish we had a longer stay to enjoy the whole experience.

Would definitely suggest (small exception)

Cons: Less pushing of timeshares!
Location: DISNEY!! The pools were a great way to unwind after long days at Disney. Shallow splash pads for our young kids to play! The market was convenient!
We booked a villa in order to have separate spaces for ourselves (2 adults) and our 2 young children since we would not get any sleep if all 4 of us were in the same room. Upon arrival, I knew it was a bad sign when there was trash sitting right outside of the door. Upon opening, we found the villa had not been cleaned at all - clothing tags scattered on the carpet, some type of sauce smeared on the counters along with crumbs, smudges all over the windows, change on the floor, dust balls, glass rings on the tables, etc. The last straw was when my husband found a TOENAIL on the rug. We called and they immediately had us switched to a new villa that was spotless and gave us a small credit to use during our stay. I must say, I was very disappointed at first but quickly impressed with the customer service and how they handled the issue. We experienced no other issues during our stay.

Nice hotel

Great place for family! Lots of things for families to do on site. The only thing my family didn't like was that the staff at the hotel pressures you into buying into the vacation club/time share but other than that we would definitely stay here again

Large resort with lots to do.

Resort is very nice. Villas are quite big and furnished very nicely. Bathroom cleanliness wasn't great. Hair in shower that didn't belong to us and toilet also not cleaned properly. Asked resort staff directions to the different pools and activities and no one knew how to direct me to anything. I suggest carrying your resort map with you at all times
