Nice experience
The hotel was very clean and all of the employees were very welcoming and helpful. The only complaint I have is how crowded the hotel was.

Just a quick weekend to hang by the pool in warmer weather. The hotel was great. We loved the restaurants and pool area. We also enjoyed the Mandara Spa.

Already booked to stay again!
Stayed here for access to Disney and was absolutely blown away with the cleanliness, amenities and proximity to Disney and other activities! This was a last minute reservation change after another hotel didn’t live up to its reputation. And, it’s proof you get what you pay for. Btw this was a very reasonable rate!
