How to Get There
Let me begin by saying that I love Disney World, have visited nearly 30 times and have stayed in many of the on-site resorts including the Beach Club. This was our first time at the Beach Club Villas and I was not impressed. We had a Studio room so our expectations were that it would be on the smaller side and were not surprised that we were correct in our assumptions. However these rooms were not designed to make use of all available space as we have found with other resorts - both moderate and deluxe, and that is very odd for Disney! Storage was sparse; the drawers on either side of the armoire were extraordinarily narrow thus not useful. The left side of the closet was not usable so you could only utilize the top shelf of half the closet. Since we were only two people, we made do but for a family of 4 you would live out of a suitcase. Finding space to store said suitcases was a challenge!! The room was boring - plain walls, one uninspiring picture on one wall. Surprising.
Given it's a villa, it had a kitchenette with a sink but it was so small it was like a dollhouse sink. The floor of the closet housed a bucket the size of Texas, two mops and a vacuum so hanging clothes was a challenge as well! But if your thing was washing floors, you were good. It appears the Villas themselves were wedged in behind the resort and that feel carried through to our room! The Beach Club Marketplace is abysmal but we knew that already from previous stays at the resort; food at the Yacht club market was of a much higher caliber. Stormalong Bay is amazing, but it is so far from the Villas it was exhausting to go! The coffee is great, the staff is wonderful, the proximity to Epcot and Hollywood Studios as well as Boardwalk and Swan and Dolphin is a real plus and the grounds are beautiful. I would chose the Resort over the Villas next time..
Being able to walk to Epcot and Hollywood Studios is great!
Our housekeeping schedule seemed to get a little confused and after our sheets were changed there were some small stains on them, but other than than everything was clean, comfortable and well appointed.
This once, beachy Disney reaper offered rooms in crisp, beach colors, touches of Disney and fixtures and carpets that all told the design story of the hotel.
Now, after a disastrous and plain ugly interior remodel, the below ordinary rooms are awful shades of grey and beige. Our room also featured two really ugly lamps that looked like leftovers from an airport Marriott and scratches on the walls.
The generic art was the saddest - nothing to do with place, story or Disney. The overall vibe was retirement home on the cheap.
Sadly, the room represents a deep misfire for Disney Resorts. Why on earth would anyone pay a premium to stay in such an ordinary, and ugly, room.
Staff was lovely, but room was very small, and looked kind of dirty. Our stay was ok, but I am really underwhelmed for a "luxury" resort.... Makes the Hard Rock at Universal look really great, as they provide a much nice room for a lot less money.
Have stayed here at least 100 nights and it never gets old. If things don’t go well the staff always works hard to correct it. Super convenient to EPCOT the main pool that it shares Yacht club is the best pool in all of Disney
