"Our stay at Grande Villas Resorts"
I was so pleased to see a hotel that lived up to the reviews on the internet. It was fabulous. Our family will stay there again and I would recommend this place to my friends and family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A very nice stay."
The location was great and the staff could not be more helpful or friendly. I will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a wonderful location and I loved the layout of the room. Service was great. The only problem I saw was there were lots of little ants in my kitchen and bathroom. I bought some spray and took care of the problem temporarily. I left a note in the room when I left stating the ant problem.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
it was amazing! We took advantage of all of the extras the resort had to offer! We played putt putt, made candy jewlery and swam in the heated pools! We also loved the bath tub in the bathroom and our balcony was awesome! The trip was really great all around! We will absolutely be coming back, thanks again Grande Villas!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You could live here!"
Loads of room!! Very nice place, very close to Downtown Disney!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Completely over-rated, so many better options"
We chose this resort because of the high reviews, we are season pass holders to the Disney parks, so we frequently stay in the area and thought we would try something new. What a complete disappointment. The grounds were lovely but that was all. Our unit was very cramped, there was a moldy smell and a black outdoor mat in the center of the small living/dining […] room that felt moist either covering a water problem or just wet. The deck could barely hold two chairs and overlooked air conditioning units- completely uninviting. The bathroom was stark, although spacious. (We have seen nicer bath rooms in college dormitories, it was that underwhelming.) The furnishings were seriously outdated, the rug stained, the tile floor in the kitchen shabbily taped to the carpet of the living room. Just awful in every way. We couldn't wait to get out of there and did not appreciate the staff's incessant pressure to attend a sales meeting. Seriously? The place is in dire need of renovations and is not at all on par with similarly priced resorts in the area. It makes us question the quality of all diamond resorts as this one was really awful.

"Exceeded my expectations!"
I was down in Orlando with my girlfriend for business, and we were staying on my company's bill at the Grande Lakes Marriott, which was pretty pricy. So after the business portion of the trip ended, we were looking to save some money by staying somewhere else a little more affordable, but still in Orlando close to the major attractions (Downtown Disney, […] Universal Studios, etc). I'm very glad that we went with the Grande Villas Resort! We found this hidden gem on Hotels.com, and to be quite honest, the accommodations were nicer than what we had at the more expensive Marriott! A separate kitchenette with full-size fridge, oven, and all you would expect to see in a standard kitchen. A large king-size bedroom with beautiful bathroom (my girlfriend especially loved the jacuzzi tub and dual sinks!). The resort itself is beautiful and well-maintained. The staff are pleasant and very helpful (they got us a cheap taxi into downtown disney, no questions asked!). If you're looking for a very affordable option close to Disney, do not hesitate. This is your place. Oh, and i failed to mention that it's within walking distance or very short taxi ride to many restaurants. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Place to Stay"
Loved it, Can't complain about anything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Close proximity to lots of restaurants, Disney, other theme parks and shopping. We stayed in a one bedroom villa which was perfect for 2 and looked exactly like the pictures online. Only con to the one bedroom (which didnt bother us) was there is no dishwasher or W/D in the unit, however a laundry facility was located in building. The staff was always […] friendly and hospitable. Will definitely return again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Disney"
I have no complaints. The suite was spacious and clean. It had everything it said it would and more. I will return to stay at Grande Villas every time we vacation in Orlando.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Condo was conveniently located to all the Disney Parks. There were many good restaurants and shopping nearby. Size was awesome and perfect for my family and three teens. We would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Grand Villas Resort"
Our stay in the Grand Villas Resort was wonderful. Not only was it reasonable in price but allow us the comforts of home. Easy check in, Easy check out, clean, and centrally located to EVERYTHING in Orlando. I am keeping this resort on my lists to stay again. Loved it.Genuine Expedia guest review
This resort was a real bargain. Rooms were large and clean. While it's an older resort is has been kept up to date.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great location to downtown disney"
We have stayed here many times. We like to go to downtown disney and it is just down the road.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Grande Villa Resort"
The bed and bedding were so clean and comfortable. Bathroom was beautiful, double sink, huge tub, separate shower. Plenty of closet space. Living area was enough for 2,but small, very uncomfortable couch. Full kitchen, right down to potholders, quality cookware..no dishwasher and very little counter space. Pool and hot tub were GREAT !!NO pressure from […] timeshare people !! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The pool I used was a good size and perfect temperature. The place was clean and staff were helpful. The ATM wouldn't work with chip cards and the little store, which was well stocked, wouldn't take a chipped debit card. They were able to get my credit card to work thankfully, since I couldn't get any cash out of the atm. My only other complaint was […] the balcony. Walls extended on either side pass my balcony so I could only see 5 feet of parking lot and there was no breeze. I saw other balconies were better and they had ceiling fans on their balconies. All I had was a light. The one bedroom suite was small and I wouldn't have wanted to be in it with more than 2 people. I was alone so it was okay. There were lots of towels, dishes, pots and pans and toilet paper provided. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great experience !"
This hotel is located close to restaurants and shops. The room was small but well equipt with all the amenities of home. It is a small but suitable space for a family of 4, for a couple of days. Very clean and friendly staffGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel. Easy to get to the parks."
Room was nice. Staff was also. Only didn't like the add'l charge of WIFI or shuttle to park. They charge resort fees and this should be included in my option.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our family of 4 stayed fot 4 days and did some of the local attractions. We were very satisfied with our room and loved that it felt like home away from home for 4 days. The two bedrooms were spacious and the bathrooms were updated and great too. Having a washer dryer in the rooms really helped with having 2 toddlers. This will be our go to place in […] Orlando from now on!! Loved the pools, playground and golf areas as well Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice and very close to Disney"
The room was fine but the living room area was rather small. I would definitely rent from them again but get 2 beds instead of a sofa bed. The bathroom was huge! We loved how close we were to all Disney as well! Disappointed that Wi-Fi wasn't included.Genuine Expedia guest review
I will Stay there in my next trip . I Like The place very much.Genuine Expedia guest review
"More than I Expected"
This "hotel" is part of Diamond Resorts time shares and actually has more to offer than most hotel rooms. The one bedroom had a full size kitchen and the bath room had large a soaking tub with a separate shower. The bedroom had a king size bed and large flat screen TV. There was coffee for the coffee maker, and dishes and plenty of towels. The AC worked […] fine and the bed was comfortable. The property store had every product you could possibly need (food, drink or otherwise ) and was no more expensive than most convenience stores. There is no room clean-up on weekends but that was not a problem for us. The three pool areas were nice and there was a very nice, well-maintained mini-golf area.

"Nice Stay in the Middle of the Theme Parks"
We stayed for 2 nights for a mini-vacation (we live in Tampa). Did not use all of the facilities, but it seemed like there was quite a bit to do. We spent most of the time at Universal/Islands of Adventures and the Disney parks. It was pretty convenient--only about 10-15 minutes from the parks. One bedroom room: mini kitchen (of course we never used […] it), big bathroom, big bath tub and shower. We were provided pool towels as well. There is a little "convenience store" on the property with a little cafe. We had breakfast there one day and it was quite tasty. I think we booked it for $70 a night, so not bad. HOWEVER, it is part of the Diamond International Resorts timeshare company. They offered a FREE gift of a free stay at another resort and all you have to do is go to their 90 minute meeting for a completely free trip...NOTHING is ever free. We signed up for it with the knowledge we could cancel, and I certainly did that after reading up on the company and their tacticts. Again, this hotel was pleasant and I might stay again, but stay away from the "free" offers and the timeshare scheme (look it up online). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place and great location"
My husband, my 3 year old daughter and I stayed here during our Disney visit. The hotel was close enough to Disney but quietly tucked away. The amenities were perfect to entertain my daughter during down times.Genuine Expedia guest review
"weekend in orlando"
I needed a place to stay to watch the softball tournament and visit relatives. This was close to all attractions, roadways, restaurants and shopping. There are several design flaws in the apartment itself (can not close the water closet door unless you are in the room and jammed up in the corner, the refrigerator can not open all the way since the floor […] molding hits the bottom, the shower opens and you have to step out of the shower to get your towel). Parking was the biggest challenge, on two nights there were cars parked everywhere. The room was clean and quiet. Overall nice place, nice pools. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel but a lot of hidden charges."
The Hotel was pretty nice but a lot of hidden charges...$6 to park the car per night-- $5 a day for internet - no hot water for shave in the AM.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, confortable, close to everything!"
I booked this hotel for my parents. They get stressed when they have to use the GPS to move around. This hotel is very close to downtown Disney and they loved it. The room was very clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was very nice for the price we paid, my only BUT was that the room had a really bad smell like mold, the hotel personal however did gave me the option to change room, I would definitely come back if I ever go back to Orlando.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A nice place to stay."
The Hotel overall was nice, clean, and Friendly. My only complaint was that there were now busses directly to Disney World. Had to cab everywhere. that was a little costly.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was amazing. It was perfect and exactly what we needed for our trip to Orlando. It was surround by excellent restaurants and things to do. I would recommend this hotel and most definitely come back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gotta love it"
We upgraded to a two bedroom for more sunlight, but the one bedroom was nice. The kitchen has everything you need and the bathrooms are beyond huge. The only thing that wasn't awesome was the food. The snack/deli place was very well stocked but the chicken strips and waffles you can order off the menu were from a freezer bag. Not bad, just not ho […] memade.

"Nice place but want to sell you eveything"
In the few weeks after booking , I received at least 4 phone calls from Diamond Star Resorts (who owns this resort) trying to sell me their vacation plan. I asked them to stop but got 2 or 3 more calls before they finally subsided. Its a OK and nice play to stay depending on what you're in Orlando for. It is located in a very touristy part of Orlando. […] There are lots of chain restaurants within walking distance. They don't provide any shuttle buses to the theme parks like most of the other resorts do. They charge $20 a week per device for the internet access which was terribly slow. I know, its vacation and you're not supposed to be in your hotel room all day on the computer but Netflix is good for rainy days. They will also try to sell you everything, after checking in they direct you to the concierge desk where they give you a list of discounted tickets they can sell you BUT you have to go to one of their 2 hour sales presentations (the same one they called me about after booking the the room). They called our room three times trying to get us to come. The parking was free unlike the rest of Orlando. Not a bust but if given the chance to go back to Orlando I would stay on International Drive near convention center. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel staff was great and the room was exactly what I requested. Upon arrival to the room, we had one problem with the tub stopper but within 10 mins the problem was fixed. Great maintenance service and very curious.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great price, con's weren't a deal breaker."
Stayed 5 nights at the Turtle Cay location.The 2 bedroom suite was bigger than my dad's 2 bdrm condo and had a nice screened porch w/fan, but the place smelled musty for the first 2 days. We really needed the xtra room and the privacy of 2 baths. The living room is set off to the side so it was somewhat private for the person sleeping on the couch too.The […] second bedroom stayed warmer and just shy of cool enough, but I like A/C cranked. The wifi was a joke and waste of money, it only functioned very late at night. The staff were very accommodating. I have to agree with other reviews we could clearly hear the neighbor's conversations at times. The sleeper sofa has standard discomfort, the tub had some dead ants and a hair in it. There were pith ants in kitchen and bath, but I'm used to that in Florida. The rug is cheap commercial carpet and the counter tops are worn. but the beds and pillows were SO COMFY!! Full kitchen came in handy. If I ever need a suite again, and I get the great price, I'll go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
