Legacy Vacation Resorts
Reviewed 14 January 2013

We just returned home from the Legacy Vacation Resort, and I wouldn't hesitate to return for a future stay! We arrived around 6 p.m. on Saturday, and had absolutely no wait. Traveling with two children and a pregnant sister-in-law, I requested a ground floor room, and it was granted immediately without hesitation. I was then sent to "guest services", where I obtained parking passes, and was strongly encouraged to do the timeshare tour. I took my parking passes, and declined the timeshare tour without any problems whatsoever.

We were in unit 152, and we had no problems with cleanliness; the unit was spotless when we checked in. It had two bedrooms, two baths, and a pull-out sofa sleeper, with a full kitchen. There were six of us total, and it was a comfortable unit, with room for everyone. The master suite had a king bed, whirlpool tub, and ample storage space for belongings. The guest bathroom had only a shower, and the second bedroom offered a queen size bed.

For those used to daily maid service at a hotel, this resort is not a hotel. It is a timeshare. There is no daily maid service, but units do have washer/dryers in them to do laundry, like cleaning towels and sheets, during your stay.

This resort has tennis courts, mini golf, basketball, several pools and hot tubs, and even a children's splash pad. The amenities were all very well taken care of, and available for use. The kids' club even offered free Wii games.

This resort is only about 15 minutes from Disney World, and is near tons of restaurants and shopping. The location was extremely convenient, and not terribly far from I-4.

There were a few minor problems that we had during our stay. The first night we were there, a huge fight broke out with some other guests right outside of our condo. They were screaming, and it became apparent that they were getting violent. With small children in our company, we were extremely uncomfortable with this display of behavior, especially at such a family-friendly resort. The next morning, police and management arrived, combed through the unit the people had been staying in, and appeared to be taking it very seriously. Whether the next day was the disturbing guests' check out day or not, they were not at the resort in the following days, which was a relief to us.

Another very minor problem was the circuit breaker in the second bathroom would occasionally pop, causing the lights to go out in the master bathroom. After calling maintenance to fix twice, we finally realized what the problem was, and just fixed it ourselves whenever it happened.

Overall, we had a nice stay. Our kids loved the pools, mini golf, and splash park. We enjoyed the hot tubs, gym, and relaxation the resort had to offer. I would absolutely return to Legacy Vacation Resorts in the future if it were an option in my travel plans.

After 27 years of visiting this area and staying in numerous resorts, this is the worst my family has ever experienced. Thin walls, no security, must walk across a 4 lane busy highway to get from one part to another of the resort. Absolutely would never return nor would I ever recommend this place. Orlando/Kissimmee have many beautiful places to stay, this is NOT one of them. Cheap bed linens, old furniture and appliances, poorly furnished and poorly decorated. Just wore out. Needs new staff, fencing and completely overhauled.

Room Tip: To get a good room drive down the road to another place

We spent 5 nights at this resort and our experience was not great. Here goes:
-location: depending on traffic, it is a 15 min drive from Disney and 25 min drive from universal.

-customer service: very slow check-in process, not very friendly staff at the front desk, and if you don't ask specifically about maps/Internet no one bothers to give out any information. Also, the resort is pretty large so our room for instance was across the street from the main lobby.

-cleanliness: rooms are clean. Bathrooms are clean. But please keep in mind that this place doesn't offer daily room cleaning. I didn't know that initially. Also, they will not restock supplies (soap/shampoo) unless you ask, and even then the service can be very slow. In addition, while the toilet was clean, it did get clogged up twice during our stay and yeah it took a while to get someone to fix that.

Overall, I was not impressed with the service and would not stay there again.

We used a one week groupon at this resort, and upon arrival it looks like a really nice place to take your family, and by using the resort stay voucher from groupon it looked to be a great deal for a family Disney trip.

However we where put in a suite at the far end of the resort beside the maintenance shop. It had lumps in the carpet, cracked grouting on the bath tubs, a microwave that hissed and sputtered, an ice machine that didn't work or wasn't hooked up. Burnt out lights, receptacle covers that didn't cover the receptacle holes completely, no wifi except at the pools. This suite looks like where you would put the new hire maintenance staff to work on until they developed some skills. Cosmetically the suite looks okay at first glance, but when you start really looking at the suite we had its not nice. Further insult is that there was really nice looking suites closer to the lobby and such but we where staying in the cheap suites.

Plus they where renovating around us installing underground piping, and a large dumpster in the parking lot was filled with garbage every day while we where there. NICE

I could only recommend someone staying there if you new exactly where you where staying before arrival. We where told we where in the 2 bedroom suites and that it is the 3 bedroom suites that are the new ones by the lobby. We are a family of five and a three bedroom suite would have been great but where never offered the 3 bedroom units. It was as if they looked at the groupon we where using and decided that we where going to be put in there worst suites because of the deal we had with groupon.

Room Tip: Ask to be in the units by the lobby it has the nicest pool and hot tub.

Come on folks, this is one of the best places to stay out there. Every single hotel or resort can have disgusting rooms. Since this place has so many suites available, they clearly haven't renovated all of them.

When my boyfriend and I first arrived the first room they put us in wasn't cleaned. So, what did we do? We asked for another, and made sure it was of a better quality. Without hesitation they put us in a GORGEOUS room. It's nicer then the condo that we live in at home! The furniture isn't modern but it's quaint and comfortable. The bed is wonderful since it's in it's own bedroom separate from the living room and kitchen. The bathroom? Beautiful. Huge whirpool tube, and yes after reading the reviews on here before coming I stood in the tub and checked for mold on the shower head. None.

Bottom line? Definitely a great place to stay. Close to the Theme parks. Not as many good restaurants available as downtown Orlando. (We stayed there one week prior), but the room is classy.

Check your room before you accept it, and if you don't like it, they'll move you no problem. No reason to hate on this property.

We were attacked New Years Day in the parking lot because we dared to park in a space next to their car. 3 young Hispanic males, 2 Hispanic females attacked a middle age white couple unprovoked and the attackers were referred to as VICTIMS by the head of security. We feared for our safety due to security managers attitude and behaviors so we left before our reservation were complete. Prior to leaving we attempted to speak with property manager but were blocked by the same head of security. This is not a safe resort nor does the staff care. In addition to security issues this is one of the resorts that place none owner guests in the poorest quality facilities. However the upper end quality shares the same poor design. The walls are thin, the noise is loud and the clientele is obviously questionable. This facility does not have any security, the entire area is open to a main road with units spread out on both sides of the busy road. Obviously thugs hanging in the parking lot is acceptable. Our first visit is definitely our last. The quality of this facility falls well below the average for this area. Word of warning, don't bother calling the Osceola deputies, they could care less about the truth or your safety.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere for you safety.

We had a 1BR with my mom staying in an attached room. Rooms are in great need of updating.It's like stepping into 1980. We had to schedule our showers, because if my mom used her shower, we lost hot water. Resort is not easily accessible, had to cross a major highway to get to room. My mom took a cab to the resort and had to walk across. They said they would bring her suitcases, and took them to the wrong room. Took her 2 hours to get her things. It's also not in the best part of town. Room service does not come and change towels, unless you call and ask for them to be changed. Our room was not cleaned the entire time we were there. We got this place thru our RCI exchange. Won't be going back.
