Set beside a leafy lake in Orlando’s Lake Buena Vista district, this 222-suite retreat is fun and functional, a perfect home base for leapfrogging into Central Florida’s theme park, golf and shopping scenes. The resort comprises seven five-story buildings, two of which ring a large free-form pool; there’s also a clubhouse with a fitness center and a 24-hour food market. Two- and three-bedroom suites provide space for the entire family to spread out, including a screened balcony. Book a two-bedroom for a King bed and two Twin, or a three-bedroom for one King, one Queen and two Twin. All suites have two full bathrooms, including a big master bathroom with a jetted tub, walk-in shower and granite double vanity. Go for a pre-dinner dip in the free-form pool, then order groceries through resort partner Garden Grocer and cook up a family meal in the fully equipped kitchen, reliving the day’s action around the dining room table. Other family-friendly features include a washer/dryer, a flat-screen TV in the living room and free WiFi.

How to Get There
This is the fifth (5th) time in the past year that we have stayed in a 3BR & 2B unit, this time for one night on 12/7/18. This type of unit has great space and amenities for our family of five (5). Although the nightly rate was very reasonable for the unit, be aware of added fees for housekeeping, depending on your length of stay. There is no parking fee, which most area hotels charge per day. Our unit needed some attention with some cosmetic needs and we found some ant issues in the kitchen upon leaving the next morning. If you want to stay near the pool area, you will want Building 1,2, or 3. The overall complex is very well kept and is in good location for Disney and Sea World, but a bit further from Universal Studios. The units come with most everything you need for an extended stay including a washer & dryer.
This property is the typical early 90s condo complex, and the rooms certainly feel 90ish....however on the positive side they are big and comfy and the location is good.
Staff is friendly as well, but what I did not like at all is the fitness center. Has to be the smallest one I’ve seen in a hotel....
I would not stay here again as there are better and more modern options in the area.
SO many negatives...hard to pick where to start. Check in is a nightmare. Very, very slow (some of which can of course be attributed to rookie type travelers), but the staff just dont get. With 4 of us in line, I asked the guy at the desk is there was someone else that could help...so he went in the back and go someone. Why should I have to ask?
There is no restaurant at this "resort", nor a bar or cafe (may be a pool bar that closes at 6:00..good luck with that). There is a small little market where you can buy stuff for the room...awesome. The "fitness center" is a touch larger than my closet, and therefore rather tight with 3 or more people. The freeway, and all the accompanying racket, are right there...very noisy, and the line of trees dont help.
Rooms are nice and large...a positive, but dated, very much so. Some better than others I believe. Yeah, close to all the Disney stuff, but nothing else. Any meal requires all piling in a car to go somewhere, or BYO. Kitchenettes in room have all you would need, another positive, and the kit therein seemed (?) clean. A fenced of pond that the property surrounds with the occasional gator swimming about, so thats kinda of a treat to see. I'll not be back...why would I.
Location was perfect! Clean and comfortable 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo was so spacious!
Great screened in porch to enjoy and relax! Staff very friendly too. Would definitely go back to WorldQuest for our next Orlando visit!
Not impressed stayed there 3 nights to try another place since we have stayed in Orlando many times. What a mistake. Room and bed was ok, we slept fine but no service and was low class. Go to the Sheraton vistana so much better
