Clean and close to everything! Check in was a little rough. They promised to call when our room was ready but didn’t. Not a huge deal. Would go back again for sure. Comfortable bed pool and hot tub open late!
CLOSE TO DISNEY

This place is awesome. it is gated and must have a gate code to get in. Has pools, kids playground, a lake and you can walk right across the street to Old Town Kissimmee. In old town you will bind food, bars, many rides for the kids (mostly for teens). there are all kinds of shops, from Ice Cream, rock shops, jewelry, nick nacks to everything under the sun. Location: very close to all of the Disney attractions , most are within 6 miles from the resort, they do have a shuttle to the parks. We have stayed here before and looked forward to coming back. In the Old town across the street they have antique car shows on the weekends, we love the old cars as we have had a few ourselves. This is a fun place to stay.

"A Strange Slice of Heaven".
I honestly didn't know what to expect since I've never stayed off Theme Park property, and when it comes to the endless commercial streets Orlando has to offer, including pop-up gift shops and imitation "funlands", the pictures SEEMED too good to be true. But with a slice of heaven, you must give in a little to the fine print.
Don't get me wrong, this place was amazing. Very quiet, VERY spacious for a single occupant, but to ensure security measures, there were some parts of the hotel you don't necessarily see in just NICE pictures alone. For starters, the front gate to get in. I'm sure to keep the "funland" traffic out, as well as the dying hotels surrounding this resort. It's hard to understand "paradise" when you drive down a street lined with "hotels" that look like the people are renting longterm...like REALLY longterm. Nevertheless, the added security was nice at the end of the day, so I didn't have to worry about my rental car getting broken into or whatnot.
The landscaping and theming of this resort is very particular, and while it's very enjoyable, I couldn't help but feel like I was renting a room in a backlot tour of houses in movies, where it was TOO NICE that no one walks down its perfectly paved street. I went to the main lobby to check-in with who I want to believe was the concierge? Two women were behind desks in a shared space, which screamed "home office". I felt like I was signing into a timeshare more than a hotel, or resort. Maybe even checking in at a travel agency, or a building tenet's office than a hotel. I must admit, after the entire experience, I was checked in and had a pleasant experience getting into my room.
I didn't get to experience the morning breakfast selections or amenities like the pool, which all seemed really nice if the temps weren't unseasonably cold that weekend.
Be prepared to have a $100 hold on the room throughout your vacation, and if you're staying for a couple nights, room service only comes around for longer stays. Otherwise, enjoy peace of mind in a gated community and quiet, spacious rooms.

All i have to say is this is onr of my favorite hotels omggg the pics speak for itself from the moment we arrived at the gate to check in to the room I was impressed the rooms very clean and spacious the only thing I dislike was that we didn't receive daily housekeeping and there isn't a fitness center on property but it's located on one of the sister hotels other than that I couldn't ask for any more rooms fully furnished well-kept spacious clean everything you need it's an amazing place and I will surely be back
Great place, excellent staff, nice spacious and clean apartment, our second visit, will surely be back here :-)
