  • 6.0.Good

    Was a resort. Sort of. The small private beach was off limits to even walk on. The concierge was useless , walked up twice, once I was given a pointed finger, another time the older lady was too busy to even look up. I went to ask to buy Disney tickets, the keyboard was more important even when I asked if they sell these or can help, she didn’t even look up. The front desk couldn’t tell me where to buy snack items after the cafe was closed, they didn’t know. The place is ok, as a hotel. Not very convenient unless you have a car or you are shopping for a high end car from the dealer across the street. The rooms in front hear the vacuums non stop from the car detail place across street. I paid through Expedia and was charged for a “resort fee” , I am unaware what this would cover as there are no amenities except the pool (which most hotels have ) which is too cold to use in November.

    Top notch resort. Extremely quiet, very convenient location, attentive staff, beautiful rooms and common areas, and a top-tier pool. One of the best resorts we have ever stayed in. Will definitely go back!

    WOW

    I really didn’t realize I booked such a beautiful hotel. The staff was excellent. Everything was clean and beautiful. There is one thing, but I don’t know what they can do about it, we were in the main building, there are 54 rooms per floor, we were in room 252, and the elevators are near room 201. It was a long walk. Maybe anyone with mobility issues should take a note of that and ask for a room near the elevator.
