Not much to fault here.
Stayed for 10 days in unit 122 - on first floor of a two storey block near reception building. Massive condo - twin bedroom at front with bathroom adjacent, double room at back with en suite and balcony which ran along to end of lounge area. Dining space and lounge. Table and four chairs on balcony and two sun loungers. Balcony enclosed in netting to prevent bugs. Fully equipped kitchen and dishwasher (but no kettle? had to buy a $6 one in walmart!) and washing machine and tumble drier in apartment (not shared). Iron and board and good hair dryer also provided. Condo very clean. Yes OK, decor maybe a little dated but who has time to sit around contemplating soft furnishings on a trip to Orlando?? Housekeeping came a few times in our 10 day stay.
Resort only around 15min drive to disney parks and just down the road from a Walmart Supercenter. Some restaurants also near at the other end of the road, but I wouldn't say walking distance for anything. Must have a car.
Nice pools (x2) and spa, with striped pool towels provided in en suite closet. Other amenities including playground, outdoor BBQ and basketball court (didn't use anything other than pool). Seemed to have an entertainment schedule also.
Cons - $10 per day resort fee payable. Covers amenities and parking. Might be a bit steep if you leave early in the morning and return late at night every day. Then it's a parking charge. Car parking is first come first served so you might not get parked that near your condo. Other reviewers have noted there are no lifts so you need to carry luggage up and down (after disney shopping!) several flights of stairs (just one for condo 122). The last thing is the repeated request to join them for a reception that I assume is time share promotion. Politely refused but was phoned again through the stay to persuade us to go. I'm sure this is an issue with all Florida/Orlando resorts though.
All in all I would definitely stay here again. The value for money is amazing even with the resort fee. Nice grounds and staff also helps.
