"Average Extended Stay Condo"
This was our first stay at a Marriott Vacation Club. It reminded me of a larger version of a Residence Inn with a 9 hole golf course and a full service restaurant. Unlike other Marriott properties, there are no complimentary upgrades available for Gold or Platinum members. There are several pools but the one closest to our condo didn't have any food or drinks available so we ended up hiking over to one of the two main pool areas. We reserved a studio which was adequate for our 2 night stay but if we were to stay longer, we would opt for a one bedroom to get the kitchen. Our balcony had several trees obstructing the view of the lake. I don't know how often they clean the balconies but it just so happened they were cleaning the balconies while we there. The sound of the power washers made sitting outside problematic. Once they cleaned our balcony, our chairs were soaked so we never got to sit outside. The sliding glass door to the balcony seemed to let a lot of outside noise in so run the fan continuously for a good night's sleep. The grounds were meticulously maintained and were gorgeous.
Clean, spacious, quiet, full kitchen, warm pools, responsive staff, great location, etc., etc., etc. We had a lovely stay. My only complaint is that when we ordered room service, the tip was already included and that wasn't disclosed, so we tipped at the door. We were hungry and didn't check the receipt until after we had eaten. No biggie, just be aware. The pillows weren't firm enough for my liking either. Again, no big deal, just be aware.
"Great place but for longer visits no late check out r room service"
This is a very nice property well Camp with lots of room. ( we were in the two story units) full size kitchen etc. the check in gentleman could not have been more pleasant and helpful and it was after midnight. We were even greeted by a nice 2 year old doe that was enjoying a shrubbery snack. Location used to be middle of no where. I remember it being a big field with one hotel. Next to ritz, w Marriott. Lots to do great place for week or so to rewind while kids at Disney or after. Here is the problem. We just needed a crash pad before a late international flight and were counting on my gold status to get late check out etc. we decided not to do amusement parks etc and wanted to arrive in Rome refreshed and ready to deal with jet lag. This is just not a good place for that as normal check out is 10:00 and they are anal about it due to size of units and popularity. They gave us to 12:00 as it wasn’t book yet when we checked in. Cost was about 250 as Off season. Water pressure a little weak, bedding was fine.
Great Marriott property located near all theme park attractions. Imoeccable groynds, rooms and amenities. Pool area is beautiful with food and beverage service. If golf is your game this is the place. Champuonship golf course.
"Best Orlando Stay Ever"
My family and I were here for our annual family trip. Our group consisted of 10 adults and 2- three year old toddlers so we reserved 2 villas: one had 3 bedrooms and the other had 2 bedrooms. We called reservations prior to our arrival to request that the villas be in close proximity to one another and they were kind enough to fulfill our request. We have been to Orlando several times in the past and I must admit that this trip was a special one for my Mom (87 years young) and the two toddlers (their first trip to Disney). This was a great trip had by all. The resort is exceptional in every way. We were assigned villas next to each other so this made our gatherings super convenient. A fully equipped kitchen enabled my brother to cook a hearty breakfast and dinner each day and night of our stay. Each villa (we stayed in the West Villa) was newly renovated (you can still smell the new carpet) and the decor was super modern. My compliments to the decorator! The resort property is huge (approximately 1600 units) complete with 3 swimming pools, golf course, spa, children's workshop, restaurants. Beautifully manicured grounds. Our plans were to visit Disney World and other attractions in the area. During our one week stay (Halloween week) we managed to visit Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom,Gatorland,Fun Spot America, and Disney Springs. All the attractions were conveniently close to the resort. No more than a 15-20 minute drive. The entire staff here was super friendly and very professional. We will not hesitate to patronize the Marriott Grand Vista on our next visit to Orlando.
