Delightful staff and close to all theme parks

Really enjoyed my stay here. The room was clean, spacious with coffee machine and cooking facilities. Sofa bed, 2 TVs and huge bathroom. Pool was lovely with arcade and spa jacuzzi. So close to all major attractions and staff were so kind and helpful with everything from your morning coffee to making sure you get some good deals on tickets

Unforgettable family holiday!

I was alittle worried about stay at the Grande Villa Resorts purely down to bad reviews in regards to being harassed to buy timeshares but not once was it mentioned. The staff were so friendly and amazing and the holiday itself was everything I could of wished for and more and we plan on returning next year! The hotel villa suites had everything you needed, were clean, upto date and spacious! The amenities were brilliant and there is quiet a lot to do there like swimming, mini golf, hire DVDs/games or just sit out with a drink. We had a great time and cannot wait to go back, thank you all at Grande Villa Resorts.

So Pleased I stayed Here

I booked a 2 bedroom as I was staying for a month, would recommend paying the extra if there are more than 2 of you, or you are staying for a while. The 1 bed is approx. 400 sq ft, the 2 bed is nearly 1400 sq ft, huge difference. The 2 bed comes with a very well equipped kitchen, including full sized dishwasher, fridge/freezer, huge oven and microwave, cutlery, utensils and china. It also has a washer/dryer, 3 tv's, one in lounge and each bedroom, decent hairdryer, towels and smellies. The patio opens into the lounge and the bedroom, and has a large table, 4 chairs and a fan/light combination. It is also screened so you're not bothered by insects. If you stay more than 7 days, you get free housekeeping. I recommend you ask for a car park view, as a pool view - which is much prettier - is much noisier as the pools and crazy golf are always occupied and the noise travels far! If you get a 4th or 5th (top) floor apartment, in blocks A, G or F, you will see some of the Disney firewroks at night, as you are approx 3 - 3 1/3 miles from Epcot. The location is about 1.8 miles from Disney springs (was downtown Disney) which is being severely developed (Nov/Dec 2015) and that will be huge. Palm parkway and Turkey Lake road run parallel with the I-4 and also I-Drive, and PP is seconds from the resort. The reception staff were superb and very helpful. Any problems I had were dealt with immediately. There is another desk at reception, opposite, which I believe are selling apartments, not 100 sure as I avoided them, due to earlier reviews. I think it starts as a 'welcome gift' and you also get a 'leaving gift', the latter would be offering be good rates for next time, so I avoided both! The last day I was there they had updated their WiFi, which is now free, it was $5 a day/$20 a week, when I was there, so I used one of the 2 general computers just off reception. I have marked it low as that was when I stayed, but if it had been free with me, then I would have marked much higher. I am very pleased I booked this resort, spacious, great room amenities, nice resort, easy parking and good road links. I would very much recommend this place to anyone, you won't be disappointed in a 2 bedroom apartment at all.

Great but they want you to buy a timeshare

this hotel has everything (almost) that you need. very good location supermarket and restaurants in less than 15 minutes walk, the only grip i had was you dont get free wifi but you can get 7 days for 20 dollars ( i didnt buy it for check the quality) there is however a computer you can use i believe. but down the road there are restaurants and most of them have free wifi if you needed to use it. but i wouldn't think its worth complaining about. the only issue i would have is the timeshare, we booked in after 12 hours traveling and tell us we have a check in gift. which is basically you can book on a tour of a timeshare, the only bonus from this is you get fed, you are also able to get discount tickets from what they said. we declined and they rang our room twice, which is borderline harassment. they also said we had a departure gift but i also didnt believe this to be genuine. i did love the location and the rooms were big and beds were great. they had large pools and nothing on the site could be really improved on it is good for families or couples. the timeshare does put a dampener on it though!

Fantastic Family Holiday

The hotel exceeded our expectations. It was well located near to all attractions. Walking distance to some great restaurants. The rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped. We were impressed with the 3 large flat screen televisions in the lounge and bedrooms. Internet available in your room, but has to be paid for- daily or weekly. Free internet for 30 minute sessions in the reception building. This was useful for printing documents etc.,Fully equipped kitchen was great, and a washer dryer was also in the room. Overall excellent - No complaints !

Holiday Getaway

The Hotel was good for what you paid but I did not expect to Pay an additional £60.00 for service charges which I am not sure what for! The rooms were only cleaned once per week. The internet service which cost $20.00 per week was useless I was unable to send emails or to download any updates wasted money. it is a pity because the location was great apart for the above we had a good time I would recommend with the above reservations.

Fantastic. Would defintely recommend

We stayed here for 14 nights in April and had a great time. We upgraded to a two bed apartment when we arrived and it was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Facilities and pools were excellent. Yes it is a shame they do not provide free wifi but being on holiday we weren't too bothered and they do have two computers in the lobby which can be used at anytime. Fantastic location, will definitely return.

A night in Orlando

The post code we were given for the address took us to an industrial estate ( FL 32836) and we just found it by driving around for two hours when we arrived another family had had the same problem as us very frustrating. Very noisy from from room above from chairs being moved and children were in the pool from 7am screaming and shouting and most rooms face into the pool. On the upside the bad was very comfortable.

Ihan hiano

Tätä lomaosake-hotellia voi suositella ilman mitään varauksia. Huoneissa riittää tilaa ja köökissä on kaikki laitteet, mitä siellä tarvitaan. Alueella monta uima-allasta sekä poreamme. Hyvien kulkuyhteyksien varrella ja paljon ilmaisia parkkipaikkoja.
