Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by VFO3 VERY NICE CONDO......however..........
The Condo is very nice. Great floor plan. You can sleep 6 very comfortable in a 2 bedroom however i'm not sure how the bathing would work for that many ppl (there are 2 bathrooms)
The furniture in the living room is the most uncomfortable I've ever sat in. You can't relax. ( I can't comment on the sofa bed as it wasn't used) I sat on the barstool that was at the counter.
You can get your towels cleaned while you are there , but this is not something they tell you.
I do not recommend the "tour" of the property. They are bringing someone to give you your paperwork , but that's only after they put you through 3 sales ppl
IF you stay more than 10 days they will clean your room, however this is a terrible cleaning. My recommendation would be to ask for clean sheets and do it yourself
Very beautiful property. Close to parks. Close to stores , food, and most anything you'd need.
Staff is helpful IF you reach out. Services are not volunteered. None of the services right down to them telling you that your key will lift the gate at the security booth.
shuttle to the parks is provided BUT the cost is $20.00 per person
The cleaning staff left the trash outside our unit and the birds kept us awake all night picking at the trash. Staff did remove it after we called and ask.
It sounds like it's not a good place to stay. It is, they just need to brush up on a few things.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SaraBeth Nice place to get away from the cold, with lots to do!
My husband and I traveled to Orange Lake Resort to rest and relax as my husband has serious health issues. As guests of a time-share owner we got an exceptional rate for 7 days in the club house.
On our first night there was a fire alarm and we had to vacate our room at 1 am in the morning and to our surprise there was another alarm at 7 am in the morning! Needless to say we were not happy about the faulty alarm glitch, but the staff was very on top of the situation, professional and made sure everyone was safely outside. We stayed in the club house, as these are the rooms dedicated for outsider guests. The clubhouse rooms are dark interior, in our case, studio rooms. While not luxurious they were clean, had plenty of towels and soaps and had a mini kitchen with granite counter tops, a frig, convection oven and dishwasher.
Now for the best parts-the grounds and staff are excellent! The pools are amazing, especially the Lazy River, which my husband told me, was the nicest pool he's ever been in. The golf courses are fantastic and we played on two of them. The restaurants are decent with medium prices. We found the music a tad to loud outside near the pools however. The landscaping by Jim and his staff are simply beautiful with no scrimping on expense. Our favorite activity of each day was to lay around the pool and play bingo, something we haven't done in years. The shuttle bus drivers were pleasant and friendly and even will drop you off near the east gate where you can easily walk to Publix supermarket for groceries. We had NO car and didn't need it! Even the Time-Share sales people were great, we didn't buy, but Andrew made us feel like an old friend. We received a $60.00 food voucher and half price golf for listening to the 1+ hour presentation.
Our TV didn't work correctly on Sunday night when the football games were coming on we called the front desk. In literally about 10 minutes the service men came and switched out the set for a new one! We were amazed. I can highly recommend this place without question. It was run professionally with top amenities and services.
Perfect for any age young and old. Ask about excursions and shuttle vans to airports, they aim to please.
