Best Things Nearby:
Very close to both Disney and Universal theme parks.

Best Things About the Resort:
The amenities. All the pools, wonderful golf, cleanliness, but most of all the hospitality of the staff.

Resort Experience:
We stayed during Spring Break 2006. The weather was great and the place was packed with families. Yet, oddly enough the only time you saw them was when you were driving back from the theme parks.This place has really grown since our visit 3 years ago. But, the staff is still OUTSTANDING and I think the place is cleaner than ever (which is really saying something!!!!)They have added a bunch of new hotel style villas that are really quite elegant, but for my money, I still really like the intimacy of the golf villas betters.This place has 10 pools, god knows how many restaurants, a private lake (with beach, volleyball, and jet skis), 54 holes of golf (2 - 18 holes and 2 - 9 holes—one is even lit and you can tee it up at night!!!)(Arnold Palmer designed the Legends Course. Very, very nice course.) Putt-Putt golf, movie theater, several bars, etc. etc. You name it, they've got it.Theme park ticket outlets on site, Internet cafe, loads of activities for kids, live and music 3 nights a week.The place is so amazing that we bought a timeshare here this time (naturally a golf villa. You really feeling like you're staying at home in one these units. Very, very spacious (approximately 1,500 square feet, and fully furnished!)Anyway, you already know about the great weather in Florida in March so I guess it boils down to: do you want to stay in a hotel with extremely limited amenities or stay at a 5-star resort for about the same price? (They do have vacation packages for non-owners.) Hope this helps.
