"Has potential but several flaws too"
We are Marriott fans. But if you are a family with children, this property isn't ideal. First there are no slides at any of the pools. To adults and seniors this is no big deal, but if you have 5-15 year olds, you know how disappointing this is. The property does a beautiful golf course (again great for adults and seniors) but slides and playgrounds for kids are sorely missed. Our room was nice, but wasn't very clean (we have a crawling 1 year old and she was getting black from the dirty carpets) and probably the most annoying thing was the elevator to our condo literally took 5-10 minutes to get to our floor every time we called on it. The staff was nice, and again the place is probably ideal for adults and seniors, but we wouldn't return with our kids. One more suggestion- ask if any renovations are going on when you book. There was loud renovations going on the entire week, not ideal.
"Great stay in bldg 98"
Though we had reservations about staying so far from the main area, it was quiet, upgraded, clean and a lovely view from the balcony of the golfers down below. Easy walk to the Golf Course grill for dinner as well! Won't work if you are looking for a true villa 2bd experience (lockoff) but we found it easy and very well kept. Thanks Marriott!
"THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY"
The good.. hotel is getting old and sure could use renovations, but it is clean and everything is in good working order. Staff are mostly very pleasant and even though the rooms are more fitting to a two star hotel the pools and shops bring up the rating. The rooms are large and well stocked. The bad.. lots of work is always going on and the contractors do not care about the guest. Yes they are nosey but here is one example of the need to be very cautious. The rooms are in separate buildings away from the main lobby. There is only one elevator in each building and at times you will be forced to walk up the six stories as the elevator is busy or just does not come. Each floor has an open outside long hallway getting you to your room. As we were walking along the open hallway a contractor was pressure washing the floor above and without notice a huge stream of nasty dirty water fell on our heads. Imagine its night time and you want a snack. So you have to commute to get to the store all the way back at the main building, when you arrive you find a very small selection of very overpriced items I bought a Kit Kat chocolate bar. I paid and then opened it a the cash counter. The chocolate bar was so old that it just crumbled, I showed the casher and she just stared at me. The ugly… from the moment you arrive there is nonstop pressure to buy time share. One old school gimmick one after another. This harassment includes early morning phone calls from sales people that are not connected to the hotel. What happened to privacy and the protection of my personal info.
"Wonderful property with excellent service!"
We had the pleasure to stay in a two bedroom two bath villa in Bldg 85. Prior to arrival, Alexandria (Alex for short), concierge, helped me with Disney tickets and restaurant recommendations. Upon arrival, Caitlyn checked us in. Her friendly smile and welcome attitude made us feel so special. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and a bottle of lovely wine with balloons was sent up to the room. We took advantage of the early bird special at the Grill restaurant. Food was excellent. The early bird special has four entrees to choose from for $29. The salmon was terrific. The room was very comfortable. The bedrooms are on either side with the living room, kitchen and dining room in the middle. Ate breakfast in the room each day, made sandwiches for Disneyworld and then usually went out for dinner. Had dinner in the room twice. Great to have washer and dryer in the room. I had the pleasure to talk to Jay, the night manager. He allowed us to have a late check-out. This was greatly appreciated as this is the first day we were able to sleep in. Thanks Jay!
"If You Want The Best!!"
We always love our stays at this Elite Resort. Marriott is known for the caring of their guests and these people put us first. There is not anything they won't do to make your stay more enjoyable. The grounds are immaculate and the pools are lovely. The architecture is Spanish and so beautiful. If you want to stay where you are pampered and made to feel like family, stay here.
