Sheraton Vistana Resort
- What's Included
We had the fortunate opportunity to stay at this resort/hotel for 4 nights and the only down side is I wish we stayed longer!! The resort is huge, with lots of rooms and recreation centres! But even though it looks big, the only time you really notice a lot of people is at the pool, but even then you could certainly find a couple of chairs.Thanks to our SPG status we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite, it was more than spacious for just 2 people, it would be ideal for a family of 4! The suite was clean upon our arrival and it was very convenient to have a small kitchen (yes, I said kitchen, not kitchenette!). We chose to forgo the daily room clean for free breakfast, which I would recommend, especially if you're not messy and what's the point if you don't spend a lot of time in the room.Breakfast was ok, your typical small buffet style, so nothing fancy, but the wait staff were so friendly and accommodating! The location of the resort was great, close to major attractions and golf courses! We had a great time here and will definitely return!
Apart from the LONG check in process and the overpriced blue horizon shuttle, Sheraton Vistana was perfect. Ray at reception was quite pushy when trying to sign us up to the presentation the next morning which didn't give a good first impression as he didn't seem to listen when we said we had travelled from the UK and were exhausted.A good sized apartment, with enough space for 7 adults. The resort is massive and we stayed in the 'palms' area of the resort. On the first night having checked in the evening, we got the resort shuttle to tacky tiki restaurant and ordered dinner and cocktails. The meals were okay. I had the gluten free pepperoni pizza, which was adequate. We got the blue horizon shuttle to international drive and it cost us $45 which made us realise uber was the better option. However you must be careful when you book uber within the resort, as our first driver got lost and we could find him, by he time we did, he had cancelled the booking, meaning we incurred a cancellation charge and we had to rebook. The best place to book from is the main reception. We were in Orlando for a week and ended up getting a rental car for most of the trip which was very convenient. Things to do:Vineland outlet mall is only a 5minutes drive away maximum. Disney springs is also not far, about 10/15mins away maximumWalmart on Turkey Lake is a better option if you don't want to pay tolls as the Walmart in Kissimee is probably closer but you have to pay toll. The car battery in the rental went flat and Andy from engineering happened to be around and he was very helpful. He called security for us to bring a battery power pack. Heather arrived and was also very nice and helpful. Great customer service
We have enjoyed staying at Vistana for many years now. We like all areas of the resort, from the original timeshare units built 35 years ago to the most recently built units. We enjoy walking in the resort and seeing the differently landscaped areas and choosing different pools in the resort depending on our moods. There is easy access to the restaurants, activity centers in every area of the resort and close proximity to Orlando attractions when you want to venture out a bit further. For us, the well appointed villas with full kitchens we can cook in together, in-suite laundry facilities and ample space to feel at home in, make every stay enjoyable!
As a family, we really appreciate having separte rooms and space, do our two bed suite was great. Room and furniture could have been more modern, but facilities were great and selection of pools worked well for us when we were not st the parks. Bars ok for drinks and snacks, but do t rush to have dinner at restaurants, as nothing special, plus hotel prices.Hotel is nice and central, so great for all parks.
I was concerned, knowing that this is also a time-share property that this hotel would disappoint. Not the case. Really clean, well-run and a nice place to stay as a family. Loved the big pool--there are a few to choose from--and we didn't get roped into any of those time-share shpeels.
