This resort is second to none The place has always been clean and well maintained, the staff do an excellent job, are friendly and really great to interact with The pool is beautiful and relaxing, with plenty of fun things to do like chess, billiards and ping pong

Arriving here you can feel the stress just melting away The management here also is very nice, not only to guests but the staff as well They knew each employee by name, introduced them and spoke very highly of everyone working with them This place is classy, warm, and inviting beyond measure

Spine First

Absolutely the best stay ever! From pre-arrival to check out EVERYthing was great Thank you to the staff through and through you ALL made this stay wonderful We were able to entertain our guests by staying in the Two bedroom townhouse which had ample space

We will definitely be back for the stay-cation again The grounds are very well kept and maintained The restaurant was on point! Great food Wonderful staff!!! Amenities on the property are plenty and useful Again greatly appreciate all the accommodations and requests Truly a wonderful destination See you soon Dr SK

Normally (we stay at Lakeshore about once a year) I’d give this place a 5⭐️rating but our most recent visit (July 2022) we had several issues with the room Nothing really bad and they addressed the issues once notified of the issues, but this time we’ve noticed that the place is in need of a real renovation The sofa bed at some point must have been broken and the “fix” they did was shotty

The front of the sofa both leaned in and out simultaneously due to the “repair” The washer sounded like it was trying to take off and the plumbing gurgled the entire week we were there The pullout cabinet for the trash and recycling wouldn’t stay closedLittle things that don’t seem that bad, but as owners we expect better from Marriott

We stayed in a one bedroom suite & it was amazing All of the staff was incredibly nice, the room was clean & decorated beautifully! The bed was extremely comfortable and the shower was my favorite part They have 4 pools & at times they were crowded, but that’s to be expected

2 pools have bars & they have fun activities at the resort Would definitely recommend+

Liah Collier

This place was greatStayed here last minute after our flight was cancelledThe resort is well kept and has tons of activities

For kids and adultsThe rooms were great It’s a very small apartment at your finger tipsEverything was clean

Upscale Traveler

Always a nice stay Would’ve given 5 stars but housekeeping doesn’t turn in the items you forget I contacted the property a few hours after I left yesterday 7/27/22 as soon as I remembered

Today they informed me nothing was turned in by staff, not surprised yet I am Reflection of upper management and housekeepers character Just wanted to put this out there if we forget our items, accept the it and unfortunately expect it? Enjoy your stay, we always doTo general manager:Try offering an incentive to staff, to turn items in left behind and help keep employees honest and feel valued Even if food items are tossed as required when left, document those items before tossing Make staff accountable and keep a reward system them for it

From the moment we checked in, we could tell our stay would be great and it was! The hotel smelled and looked clean We stayed 2 nights with 3 kids ranging from 3 to 14 years old Everyone of the hotel staff we spoke to was so nice and helpful

The room was spacious We didn’t feel crowded with 5 of us in a room The pool areas are awesome!! Our kids LOVED the slides at one of the pools (there’s 3 pools) We’ll definitely be back!

Jasmine Jacobsen

The whole property is wonderful! Lots to do, very clean Decent free breakfast The entire staff was wonderful! It was a shock to be honest these days

My boyfriend and I travel a lot and no one seems to be happy these days with staff shortage ect Taylor greeted me to check inshe was fast, informative and genuinely seemed enjoy her job! Even the lady in the Starbucks was sweet at 7 am🤣 We got a double room, it was clean and spacious We will definitely be staying here again!

They provide beach towels at the front desks for the pools Continental breakfast is included in your stay The staff was very pleasant and the grounds are very well kept If we knew that our stay would be this enjoyable, we would have made this our home for the length of our visit We will definitely be returning

The hotel staff was extremely welcoming The rooms were clean, the hardwood floors were a plus Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of hot water

There was only outdoor seating for the breakfast, so we had to eat in our room because of rain The breakfast staff was extremely nice and helpful The food was made to order which was a bonus Will definitely be staying here again

shelly maddox

Beds were comfortable enough Breakfast was decent We were roomed right next to the housekeeping room and walls are paper thin we kept hearing the door being slammed all day and night

We found a cockroach in the bathroom on our last morning there They only offer cleanups of the room every 3 days Never took trash out of our room unless it was at the 3 day mark They are remodeling so hopefully it gets better Do something about the roaches That’s nasty


My check in process was easy, fast, and organized with the help from Fernando He was very professional and helpful The morning of checking out my boyfriend wanted to extend our stay another day, Fernando helped us with no problems and we were able to keep the same room

The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are extremely clean The beds and pillows are so comfy you don’t wanna get out of bed Definitely recommend this hotel!

The staff was accommodating when we asked to change rooms We need a first-floor room and the room was indeed clean although I could say different for the dated, damaged and worn items The cleaning staff did an excellent job, security was also amazing and the staff was accommodating with many things

But for prices, I would have done just as well in a newer hotel suiteI am not an owner at this place but if I was, I would have wondered where my maintenance fees go Electrical outlets need repair, they were extremely loose in the bedrooms and light fixtures kept shorting out Many fixtures like mirrors with moisture expansion, mold in the bathroom shower areas, and the air vents full of dust/dirt although some items have been recently upgraded and I realize we are coming out of a pandemic some of these items should probably be a priorityMany items should be considered for upgrades along with your half-worn curtains with holes in the insulated areas, bed mattresses should probably be replaced if myself and spouse roll into one another as it drops in the middle, maybe consider that chairs should not be fixed by putting chair covers on them Although we are thankful for having a kitchen and washer dryerIf you don’t want to hear other guests dragging chairs across the floor or kids bouncing a ball at 1 am you might consider a 2nd story room/suite I am not sure who said it was a hidden gem they must have some upgrade or brand new rooms, we did not get fortunate enough to get that roomThe cleaning staff and security were great staff was accommodating with many things But for prices, I would have done just as well in a newer hotel suite

Caitlin Grossman

Overall a decent, mostly clean place to stay for visiting the parks and hanging out on the property I would recommend going for the one bedroom suite for extra space and a more comfortable layout If you’re staying for the week, the one bedroom is a MUST

Staff are so friendly and helpful Really nice experience with everyone who works on the propertyCleanliness – the rooms are so-so The carpet in our bedroom stank when the AC wasn’t running Otherwise, it was cleanAmenities – all of the pools and spas are very nice, pool chairs are fairly new Gym was awesome Super clean and lots of optionsAmbience – the rooms are in desperate need of renovations to remove popcorn ceilings, re-tile the bathrooms, update the jacuzzi tubs (I wouldn’t use a hotel jacuzzi tub ever), rip out carpets, remove tacky mirrors behind the beds, replace furniture and curtains

Ray Hile

Nice room staff was accommodating Stove and toaster needed some attention Wasn’t found of the couple sitting in the outside stair well smoking and leaving their cigarette butts laying on the steps

Didn’t care if they smoked just pick up the trash Nice pool and Hot tub Jet tub was great We mentioned the stove and toaster when we checked out Was a nice get away

Posting an honest review because the good reviews here fooled us I would not recommend staying here You need to fill out an authorization form and send pictures of your payment and ID info over email if you book through a third party (Hotels

com) since there are no staff on the premises to check you in (pic of credit card only had to show last 4 digits of card, but still sketchy and unfortunately legitimate) We found this out while we were at the airport about to board which was less than ideal Unit didn’t come with basics – had to go to the store to buy more forks and hand soap (none in unit) and shower floor felt like it was going to cave in with how much sound it made with the lightest movement Had to go to the airport early in AM and security guard was asleep so I had to get out of the car for them to open the gate, unit had small couch-sized pillows for all of the beds, and there were several cheap plastic blinds falling apart throughout the unit “Fine” if you’re on a budget and want space, but there are definitely better options in better locations The manager, Brandon, was kind and let us check out late, but was unaware the pool was completely emptied and the strange check in process left us uneasy from the start

Ivan Andrade

Terrible service, hardly found anyone un the reception, when we could finaly interact, the service was very unprofessionalOld furniture, very unconfortoble sofa, small TVs, slow internet, lack of infrastructure (small pool and a small playground – wich they charge you USD 20/day regardless if you use it or not)Cleaning was horrible, we found a bunch of food under the bed

Sandy_ Gsd

Wonderful accommodations!! Spacious, clean and has everything you would need Weiss at the front desk was so helpful, friendly and just made our stay so pleasant and easy

even when we kept extending with short notice Everyone else at the front desk was very friendly and helpful as well! Really enjoyed our time here beautiful pool to relax at Perfection for our family

I really liked our room I actually wish we would have had more time here We had 2 bedrooms with a kitchen

The space was really night A little out dated but well put together The pull out couch waswhew WELL beyond its life expectancy It was broken, and the mattress was so worn out it was paper thin I’m very particular when it comes to cleanliness and i give this place a strong B+ There were some areas of dust and rogue hairs here and there but nothing action news reporting worthy The pool is not heated There is a small hot tub The staff was SUPER friendly and helpful I do recommend and would stay here again!

Raquel Ganadin

Our suite was cozy, unfussy, and humble Clean and affordable was our priority and Parc Corniche was that They have all the conveniences for our big family to stay

Pool area was clean and not busy Gym was pretty good for what needs to get done All the entertainment was easily accessibleWhat really made the experience for us was the incredibly welcoming and friendly service They were super helpful, professional, and kind We couldn’t get an Uber for our family size plus luggage, so were dealing with horrible taxi service that was an hour and a half late and unresponsive Antonio the manager rescued us by arranging another ride and getting it to us asap Everyone there who helped us out was fantastic and deserve a stellar review (I wish I got everyone’s names) They’ll be our first choice next time we stay in Orlando

Princess Leia

Made a booking in February of 2022, and didn’t need to pay until the day of check in The price was a little over $830 Now a week before they wanted us to pay the full amount before even getting there

I considered that unethical practice Now the price is over 1,300!!!!! So we were able to booked a better place for cheaper what they want now so I thank you for canceling us

I just got from staying at Lake Nona Wave Hotel What a wonderful experience, from the minute you walk in the door From the bellmen to the front desk, I was greeted with a smile

You walk in and you feel positive energy, you feel happy with the bright colors, beautiful art work and not a detail is missing The rooms are beautiful, so well appointed and in each room one of the most comfortable, soft robes to wear The food and beverage was awesome and the chef is so creative Meeting space is lovely, banquet chairs very comfortable and the banquet and wait staff was always very hospitable I cannot wait to visit again

Ryan Kaufman

We had our room block here, rehearsal dinner and after party for our wedding this weekend If I could give 10 stars I would We were a little nervous about things going smoothly due to how new it is

Usually a brand new hotel takes a little while to find its rhythm from an operations standpoint We were the first wedding room block they had there They not only handled us in stride, they knocked it out of the park Every detail was thought of carefully, every staff member went above and beyond to make it a great weekend for us and our friends/family This is hospitality at its finest I highly recommend you give this place a visit/ stay Angela the event manager is a true professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with Thank you for making our special weekend the best!

The Lake Nona Wave is an amazing property! I’ve been to several hotels and what makes this hotel different are the people They are all so caring and sweetThere’s live music on Wednesday nights, and the food is delicious!In room dining is great, the Living Room bar is the most comfortable, but elegant place, and the decor is fabulous! As a guest and local, this is the place to be

Lisa, Patricia, & Sebastian from The Living Room bar are attentive to their clients; while Val & Kyle will make sure you have everything you need for a successful and pleasant stay

The services provided by the hotel staff was phenomenal! The greeting before entering into the breakfast toowas very welcoming! My family and I went out of town for two days and I forgot I left money on the counter When we arrive back to our room 2 days later, the money was folded up and placed on top of the night stand for me to be able to see This gave me a sense of peace to know their is good people on staff who are trustworthy and aren’t only here to make a paycheck

This truly showed me that their hotel processes, standards and protocols are efficiently structured! I recommend giving the General Manager John Lyon a raise due to his competence in understanding what the guest and environment needs in order for this hotels quality of service to travel across the nation and become a premier hotel brand in this industry!

Dean Harper

We had the very best stay! We have always stayed on Disney property but due to the backlog of vacationers we were unable to secure accommodation for consecutive fifteen nights The service at the Residence Inn by Marriott blew all Disney’s “Welcome Home” away Jean was absolutely fabulous on the front desk, friendly and efficient

The room service was faultless and totally accommodating of our schedule The swimming pool was the warmest I’ve ever enjoyed and kept so clean The breakfast was self service, variety accommodated two night stays but we always enjoyed it The cereal option was at extremes in offering either sugary flakes or bran; a nice plain middle of the road cornflake was missing (but that is picky) The breakfast staff were always helpful, friendly and very efficient turning the tables around Weekends were great with the character attendance We had a TV fail and it was immediately attended and replaced; the maintenance team were also proactive asking if all was ok as we’d pass in the lobby or in the lift Located close to many food and shopping options and just minutes from Disney Springs We had such a perfect stay, Thank you all so very much!

Channoah Green

There is a saying better late than never I have been meaning to take some time to write this review but with the transition of moving it took a while My children and I relocated to Orlando and due to the no turn in the housing market, I made a decision to wait it out

Now having to look for the perfect apartment my stay at the Residence Inn ended up being for 3 months Gerald was the manager and his entire staff was AMAZING all the way down to housekeeping! I even had the pleasure of meeting the GM John and he was just as amazing!I am HUGE on service and will skip the fanciest restaurant, store, hotel on the block if treated better elsewhere Whatever we needed the staff was there I have never experienced this type of service at an hotel before Breakfast was always great every morning I was able to focus on our move without the stress of lodging Residence Inn became like family Today my children still speaks of them You know you made an impression when the kids are like when can we visit and I have teenagers lol We checked out of the hotel in February with Residence Inn Orlando Lake Buena Vista making a lasting impression on my familyI cant thank you enough, I am ever grateful You made our transition smooth

What a stunning and beautiful hotel to stay at while in Orlando All of the staff that we interacted with were incredibly helpful and polite The hotel room, the pools, hot tubs and the grounds of the property were all immaculately maintained

Going for walks around the lake was so pleasant Even the 3 outdoor grill stations were super well cleaned Definitely buy some steaks and cook them on the grill to eat in your room The screened in patios made for a wonderful place to relax without any bugs in the evening

Daniel Flud

What a beautiful location to stay! Here on my honeymoon with my wife and have not been disappointed The grounds are well manicured and clean Great pricing as well

Walk right over to large shopping malls and dining, not to mention only 10- 15 minutes to every major theme park in OrlandoWhen you stay here you will be taken care of

Nicole Henderson

Very poorly designed rooms Stayed to get away to relax went to room first night bathtub had a dirty towel! You can hear people walking making noise Moving chairs and shutting doors as if your in a horribly designed apartment

I would not recommend if you are seeking to actually go on a vacation or relaxing getaway I could have stayed in a ghetto residential apartment if I wanted to hear all of this noise all night Also good luck getting any help from front desk apparently the button on the phone goes to security and does not get redirected to the front desk for any assistance By the time I got the actual front desk I had to speak to a supervisor who acted like the manager and even misrepresented managers name Provided no solutions to the inconvenience of having to move at 11pm at night I’m in building 4 and her original solution was to move me to building 7 on the top floor which lacked common sense as I would have to move my vehicle and pack up Just outrageous cheaply designed buildings Also when you check in they will ask you all sorts of personal things such as if your married and offer a 90 min tour for a timeshare even if you are staying for one to two nights smh If I could give zero stars , take away this wasted time at this resort and poor customer service in my space, life and erase this from my memory that would be worth it

Bradley Slegel

We have stayed here 2 times and thoroughly enjoyed our stay each time The rooms are basically 2 bedroom apartments with a beautiful master suite and bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and massive, separate shower The living room is nice, with a pull out sofa bed

The kitchen is a nice size and is fully stocked with all of the necessary cookware The two pools are beautiful and almost every room has a great view of them and their small lakeThe only downside is the long check in process and that they really try to push for a meeting to try and sell a time share They do offer perks like gift cards for hundreds of dollars if you listen to their spiel Other than that, it’s a terrific place that’s minutes from all of the parks

Veronica Atanassov

We arrived at the hotel To our unpleasant surprise, the room was filthy and smelled like mold There were brown unidentified smears all over the doors and walls

The bedsheets were dirty and torn up There were scented dries sheets hanging off of the air vents to mask the smell The next morning I went to the front desk and asked to speak with the manager The front desk person took notes and took my concern to the manager but the manager never wanted to come out and talk to me Instead, she told the front desk lady that everything would be taken care of and the room would be properly cleaned right a way My family and I went to the parks and came back at 11pm tired to the same dirty room Of course we were disappointed as we had 4 tired kids with us and we didn’t even have fresh towels to take a shower I called front desk and we all had to wait until 12:30am to get fresh towels which is unacceptable The following day I went to do that again, and once again the manager refused to come out and talk to me about the issue That evening, once again, I tried talking with the night shift manager, which contacted me with housekeeping The housekeeping manager contacted me and said she will send up engineering to take down the dries sheets and replace the air conditioning air filter and assured me that the room will be properly cleaned the next day Engineering came up, took down the dries sheets, replaced the filter but the problem did not go away The room continued to smell like mold The next day it looked like housekeeping came up but only fixed the beds and left fresh towels for us They did NOT clean the brown stains/smears For the duration of our trip I tried contacting management but with no success We are extremely disappointed in that hotel and will never go back there again

Aletha Jones

This place was amazing! We stayed for six days and enjoyed every minute of our stay The room was immaculate and equipped with everything you’d need for an extended stay Washer,dryer, stove,oven,dishwasher etc

The bedrooms were very spacious Our master suite included and jetted tub and a huge shower They provided a list of daily activities for the duration of our stay and we enjoyed participating There was something fun for all ages going on each day There are 3 beautiful pools and each has their own unique things They ll have a bar where you can order food and drinks Cabanas, tables with umbrellas and lounge chairs are available at each pool as well as fresh towels Also, there are basketball and volleyball courts if you’re into that The grounds were well kept and so beautiful, we took walks often just to take in the scenery The staff was accommodating, the on site market makes it so you really never need to leave the resort 10/10 experience and will return

This resort was absolutely wonderful From the moment you walk in, the customer service was great We were taken care of very quickly and the front desk lady was very informative; she let us know where our building was, the open and closing time for the pool, etc

She gave us some tokens for my 3 year old to play and even some coupons for the drinks at the bar I have never felt so well taken care of at a resort then hereThen we went to the room Beautiful Everything was so clean and considering that we were right behind the pool, the noise wasn’t what we were expecting The beds were so comfortable and the bathrooms were glorious I personally love the little window in the master bath, i thought that was very cute and quite funnyThe location was close to the park that we were going to the next day which was wonderful and it was close to the restaurants and other attractionsWe absolutely loved this resort especially since it was 5 adults and a small child We all fit comfortably and we were so relaxedThe pool was absolutely gorgeous and we loved that it had a specific area where the children could play We will definitely be coming back to this resort sooner rather than later


First time and won’t be the last The staff was great They made our stay much easier and everyone is friendly and professional

They answer all of our requests extremely fast We stay 6 nights in a 3bed 2 bath The rooms were big and plenty of storage The master bathroom had a jacuzzi tub, which i didn’t think we were going to use but we did!The bathroom are big as well and double sink The kitchen had everything we needed and having a washer/dryer in the unit was a plus The fact that each room had their own TV made the kids happy! Everything seem to be working properly Beds were comfortable It can use and update here and there to make the unit more modern, but having that said, it is well maintained and clean! They have 2 pools which are both big and hot tubs as well Plenty of parking available and it was super quiet The location was great!

We have been here a few times and each gets a little worse There for 9 days and we were told to schedule a “house cleaning” midway through We did

It was confirmed and it never happened When we called to question we were told it was never on the schedule So I scheduled it again Literally the same exact story So basically no house cleaning Also when we arrived our dishwasher was falling out and did not work, the sink in the master bathroom was clogged and our coffee maker did not work They were quick to respond to fix most of it The dishwasher was screwed back into place but he could not get it to work They were going to send someone back to fix it but never did Again, called multiple times to get this fixed but nobody ever showed upThat being said, it is a nice place The main pool and bar are relaxing A lot of room at both pools to enjoy your vacation The location is perfect and in all it was enjoyable

Average accommodations, needs updating, the smaller suite is really just enough room for 2 people We are a family of 3 which meant my husband and I had to share a full size bed that had one side up against the wallWe stayed in room 2016a and it had a moldy smell

If you stay less than 5 day you have to wash your own towels in the outside community laundry room Housekeeping only cleans after you checkout which explains the complaints about roaches We didn’t see any roaches in our room however the lizards were a bit disturbing hanging around outside our door I’mfromOhio so that was a surprise to meThe pool area is small and they make you sign for towels There aren’t any umbrellas around the pool and all the shady areas are not close to the pool so we had to leave our belongings unattended which was fine no one bothered themThe roof top bar looked like it would have been fun for a girls night out, they had karaoke and from what I could hear the DJ was awesomeThe game room was small and the workout room was sufficient and cleanOverall good experience for the price


Beautiful place The grounds are kept clean & the paths are easy to maneuver The staff is friendly, knowledgeable & accommodating

The upstairs bar/ lounge has great drinks The rooms are clean & comfortable The pools are beautiful and plenty of lounge chairs to relax inThis resort is near lots of shopping for food, clothes & entertainment Near major roads to travel to various theme parks

Had a slight mishap when I first arrived they had a system error that assigned me to the wrong room that wasn’t deluxe when I paid for deluxe Also the connecting door to the other room was wide open and it’s not suppose to be unlocked nor open, bed was unmade However, the service was wonderful and they graciously resolved the issue

Put me in a new room with everything in check, told me they would find out who left that first room that way so they could be held accountable for that Wonderful service Wonderful pool and bar The food in their Deli was BEYOND my expectations For such a small kitchen the food is incredible and well priced Can’t say enough about the food, atmosphere, staff/service Definitely coming back!

My family and I recently had a delightful experience! The resort is absolutely spotless In the mornings they even had staff out in the parking lots cleaning any trash or anything out of order Impressive! A few other great perks… simple parking that was literally right outside of the tower we stayed at (super convenient!)

Delicious coffee in the suites Never heard our neighbors once! Definitely recommend!

Liz Miller

The rooms are really nice Tons of room and super comfy beds Laundry is $2 to wash and $2 to dry, paid in quarters

If you are using their conference center, dress for the antarctic, even in summer (not kidding 🥶)The staff was amazing After the first night, someone knocked on our door to see how our stay was going We told them our shower was draining really slow, not expecting much but they immediately fixed it! Super impressed they knocked, asked, and actually cared!The pool was a huge hit The location is perfect if you’re visiting Disney There’s great parking If you want to skip the parking fees, park in the front along the fence They actually told us this! Super sweet people!

Ray Henderer

Very nice resort! Rooms are newly renovated in a very clean looking style The resort was easy to maneuver with self parking pretty much right at your door The pool area is very beautiful and provides easy access to either your room tower or to the main lobby

The staff was pleasant all the way around It provides a nice alternative to some of the mega resorts that are offered in the theme park area We were there attending a church event and found that the conference center was convenient and well cared for I’d recommend this property for business, pleasure or both!

Michelle Pettit

Very nice staff! Very convenient location to Disney parks and many places to choose from to eat out The pool was nice but a little cold and the lazy river could have been open more The bar is missing out on serving drinks to people on vacation

They should be open more The rooms were very spacious but need a dresser The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean We had a nice stay

Mason Bissi

We stayed here for 10 days total and we totally recommend it! The staff are friendly and really helpful We had no problems whatsoever The hotel and rooms are very clean and large! The pricing is very fair and it’s proximity to Disney and Universal was a big plus for us since we went almost every day

The room service is super easy, just call them since it’s by request It takes 2 seconds to call so we just did it before we went out for the day 10 days straight, the room was always perfectly cleaned and the cleaning staff are extremely friendly and kind people As for the coffee set up that all the other reviewers like to complain about, it’s perfectly fine and easy to find And the coffee was great! The breakfast buffet too is fairly priced and really worth it We will definitely be back to Red Lion the next time we visit Orlando Thanks so much for making our vacation so perfect!

Michael Cesarotti

Good value for the room size and amenities offered Stayed 3 weeknights in late March Room was clean and up to date along with the common areas

There were chairs open around the ample sized pool and a lazy river/water slide that opened at 2PM Be aware of the resort fee of around $17/day which does include parking Room service is by request only, I didn’t need it so can’t comment there Free coffee until 11AM but you will pay 1199 and up for breakfast at the attached restaurant All of this is disclosed online so don’t be surprised Only critique would be to offer more TV channels and put some coffee makers in the rooms Regardless, this property is still a better value compared to the larger chains in the area and you really aren’t missing out on anything so this is a solid recommend

LOVED the amenities and the quality complimentary breakfast they provide The variety of pools were great, we had a great time there and we will be back for sure!I truly recommend this stay 100%

Paul Foster

So I rarely give any rating 5 stars, you can look through my reviews and see for yourself This hotel is a 5 star hotel in my opinion First let’s talk simple amenities

No fake soaps in the room, Dove soap is the standard The room was immaculate The maid left clean towels outside my room when I had the do not disturb sign on my room door The breakfast was great The pool area was incredible Hot tub was available The bar outside near the pool had a small restaurant attached There was a zip line for children, rock climbing and bouncy castle The staff was perfect This Hotel is what right looks like

Amanda Taylor

Fantastic hotel! It was clean, comfortable and had many amenities-very accommodating! Ana was so welcoming in the morning for the complimentary breakfast, which was a very nice spread We actually looked forward to our breakfast each day our entire stay Melissa at the front counter was so helpful and nice

The pool area was very clean and maintained We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be planning to stay here in the future

Staff was great Location was convenient Room was a nice size and fairly clean

By fairly clean I mean overall it was decent however we saw ants the first night on snacks left on the counter and we are pretty sure there was pee on one of the legs to the dresser And it is a pet friendly hotel The biggest problem was our room keys Some would work only to get in the building and then not on our door some wouldn’t work all together We had them changed and still the same problem The whole time out of three key cards only one would get us in the room I left 3 stars because 25 isn’t an option and 2 seems sad for a stay we mostly enjoyed We’re not very hard to please travelers and it’s certainly not a motel 6 As a timeshare holder with club Wyndham I’m very disappointed my points don’t carry over to the club but that’s another story

Gillian Marsden

Staff was amazing, very professional and a fun crew! Especially the front desk staff, the chef and our server Amanda, who all always took amazing care of us, whatever we neededThe hotel is very clean and beautiful in design, rooms are so spacious and furniture is large and comfortablePaid breakfast was a great price and very good quality food with lots of fresh fruit and healthy options available

Will definitely stay again and can’t wait to come back!

Michael Caraballo

Truthfully, I have never had an experience at a hotel that had me convinced I would never come again until I visited TRYPWe had an initial room reserved For a room reserved at an $89 rate, I expected the bare minimum but not even that was achieved

I’m not sure if housekeeping was lackluster or just not motivated but the furniture was covered with dust As someone with a dust mite allergy, this can make sleeping difficult Especially when it is as heavy as it wasWe complained and were provided another room The staff were prompt and friendly about the situation Yet, when we were switched to a different room, we discovered another issueTHE ROOM WAS NEVER THOROUGHLY CLEANEDYes, the linen was cleaned, bathroom was organized and the furniture was where it needed to be but my friend and I discovered that the garbage was never replaced and there was old laundry from the previous visitor – an old sock behind the bed and some clothing in the wardrobeWhile I don’t expect to do many things while I’m staying a night at a hotel, I should not have to expect to clean out the garbage and residual items from a previous guestNot to mention the “box breakfast” they provide was the saddest meal I’ve ever had It was the equivalent of 3rd Grade cafeteria breakfast All they could provide was “suggestions” to outside restaurants I understand we’re dealing with COVID creating limitations but this is such a poor responseThis was not worth an $89 visit and have had better experiences at motels for cheaper

This place is sweet Absolutely stunning and beautiful resort Service was incredible all week

Huge pools and tons of activities We came to Florida for Disney world but honestly we could’ve stayed all week at this resort and not been bored The rooms are beautiful and have plenty of space The beds were the most comfortable I’ve slept on outside of my own home

Pamela Orr

Beautiful resort! First time staying at Marriott’s Cypress Harbour and we loved it! It’s in a great location, yet away from the craziness of the theme parks! The villas are lovely, the views of the lake are gorgeous and the screened lanais are so nice to relax in The villas are large and designed well allowing privacy between the master suite and the second bedroom and bathroom Very nice colour palette

The employees were fantastic too!Highly recommend!!

Mary B.

This place is wonderful I really enjoyed my 2 day short stay here The rooms are fantastic and have 2 bedrooms, 2 bath, washer, dryer, kitchen with amenities, jacuzzi, living room and screened in patio that over looks the waterway

The sofas (one in living room area and one in bedroom, are soft sofa beds) It was nice and serene to see the boats cruising on the water
