Great for families

We choose to stay off-property for this trip to Disney. We wanted more space for the money, and the ability to eat at "home" if desired. The villa was spacious, clean, and very nicely decorated. The kids loved the pools. It was a great location, it could not have been any easier to get to DIsney each day.

Great family holiday

This hotel was a great experience for us. We loved the layout of the villas. The pools were heated and the resort was very clean. Disney World is about 15 minutes away. If you buy your Disney pass at this hotel you receive 3 "fast passes" for rides! We loved how close it was to restaurants and shopping. We were there with 3 children. ages 16-22. They swam, played tennis and mini golf. The market place for groceries is also a very nice feature. We stayed in a 2 bedrrom unit on the second floor in Cascades 3 building. Newly renovated and beautiful. Kudos to this hotel.

Wonderful!

This hotel was well worth the money! Most of the staff were absolutely wonderful. The resort itself was awesome and there was something for everyone. Everything was clean and we loved the variety of pools and hot tubs. The pool bar was fun and the resort is spread out so we never felt crowded. The location of the resort was very convieniently located near shopping, theme parks, airport, etc. We loved the villa with the full kitchen and cooked a couple of meals because we felt like staying in and it felt very homey. The only staff that were not friendly and seemed to hate their jobs were the morning wait staff at zimmies. One waitress was actually rude. Other than that, we would go back to this resort but probably would not eat breakfast at zimmies.

Great location

These accommodations were conveniently located to downtown Disney and the Disney attractions but a little bit more out of the main traffic. The staff was helpful and friendly. There is a little market in the complex for a few food items you might need. The apartment we stayed in was a two bedroom. It was spacious and comfortable with very little extra. My main complaint was that the internet connection was terrible! Additionally, when I wanted to reach the front desk I had to use my cell phone as I could never get the phone to work in the room.

Great Disney option for families

We traveled with 2 families to Disney World. Each family had a 2-bedroom condo with 2 baths. Both condos were perfectly clean, well-decorated and well-appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals in if we chose, and there are dozens of restaurants nearby. The resort is huge and sprawling -- we checked out 3 of the 8 (I think!) pools, and ate lunch at Zimmie's. Pools were clean, and not too crowded even on a holiday weekend. It takes about 10 minutes to get to the Disney Parks and about 25 minutes to the airport. We spent our time either at Disney or the resort, though we did eat at a couple of nearby restaurants. I would stay here again and will recommend it to families. While nothing compares to staying "on property" at Disney, this resort is a close and economical second. We loved having the space to spread out, and the in-room washer-dryer was a bonus! If you stay here, bring travel-size detergent packets. Next time, I would leave a day just to explore the resort. The Cascades Pool has a waterfall and fountains, and the pool in our section was quiet and small (and not crowded). We looked at the Fountains pool, but it was more of a "scene" than we needed with our little kids. Teenagers would love it, as they had a recreation staff running games. Check in was easy, and checkout is by phone. The resort requires a room key to get in the gate, so you will feel very secure. Enjoy!!

Great experience

I stayed at this hotel not expecting it to be great but it was a tremendous value , you will not be disaapointed. It is very close to Disney Parks and Universal. The rooms are very spacious and modern with nice ammenities. The staff was very helpful and always had great customer serivce in mind. Two adults and two children comfortably stayed in a one bedroom suite with a pullout. the kitchen was fully stocked and modern. My only complaint was that the bed was a bit hard. However, the in room jacuzzi made up for that. I would stay here again.

Great location

The Sheraton Vistana was a great value and perfect location to all Orlando major attractions. The hotel was very clean and well maintained. Our only comment was that many of the activities for kids had an extra charge associated with it whereas other hotels provide them for free. Such as snow cones at the pool were a $2 charge as part of there pirate party. Pretty cheesy. Mini golf was $5 a person it wasn't even very large. These things should be included with your stay. Overall good stay.

Great Hotel, Don't rely on shuttle serive to Disney.

Rooms are very spacious with a full kitchen and laundry area. Separate rooms for kids and parents plus a large dining and living room. The only downfall is that their shuttle service to Disney resort is not adequate enough and they are never on time.

Oasis in Orlando

Ideal location just minutes from Downtown Disney and the I4 yet a world away in terms of piece and quiet. This is a large resort and caters for all tastes and family groupings but some how manages to be classy. Our apartment was roomy with Jacuzzi and balcony. 100m from one of the superb pools. Just about perfect.

Just make sure you have the right post code for your Satnav. The post code in the detail is wrong. There are two similar Sheratons!
