hotel was very 5 star atmosphere - pool was fabulous so many things for kids to do - lazy river, pool slide, basketball in and out of pool, splash pad area and large fountain splash in wading pool for little ones. Very family oriented place. Must show room key to enter into pool area so outsiders are not just dropping in to use what guests have paid for. Pool grounds not too big of an area -kids can roam from one area to another without worry of safety or locating them. Restaurant pool side food very good but pricey (2 cheeseburgers an 1 chicken finger meal plus tip $*) also service was way too slow and understaffed for spring break time of year - but wouldnt stop me from returning. Rooms are smaller but still didnt mind because of the pool and overall feel of the hotel. Parking was not miles away- similiar distance as if you were shopping at Target - valet also available at extra cost and can easily load and unload in main drive. Great conveniences short drive 5 min...McDonalds, Walgreens are actually right inside gates of property area, Dunkin Donuts down the street little further up maybe 8 minutes - we ate breakfast there twice and came right back. Ran to Walgreens several times for water and snacks to avoid costs at hotel. Would definitely return just cant beat the fun pool area and decent hotel rate. Also not too bad of drive from Magic Kingdom.
