"We are just leaving from spending a week in a 3 bedroom condo. The rental process was easy, check-in was quick and smooth, only one mention of attending a sales pitch. We are pretty self sufficient travelers and never had need to visit the lobby again until check out.
Our 3 boys are 13, 15, and 17, so although we did visit the pirate pool a couple of times, we spent most of our time at the smaller pool. They said the slide was def. for little kids, 10 and under probably. Pools were very nice, but it seemed like there was very little maintenance, no one coming thru to empty the overflowing towel bin or gathering trash, on any sort of a regular basis. The bar at the large pool did not have prices for drinks listed, this is annoying. I inquired once and of course it was vastly overpriced, but had the prices been listed, I may not have been so offended.
We are early park attendees, so we parked in the covered 2nd floor parking area all week with no issues. This was fantastic. We did notice at night after park closing, the lot was totally full and people were parked al over the property.
Onto the condo itself, we purposely rent a room that gives us the ability to prepare our own food and eat in more than eat out. This condo was just ok in meeting that need. There were pots, but no pans (huge minus!). One dish towel, but no dish rag. An oven to use, but no oven mitts to retrieve your hot item. It said there was a blender, but there was not one there. No measuring cup. They definitely went on the sparse side in stocking the kitchen with what we would consider basic items. For a small investment they could easily create a more well appointed kitchen.
The washer and dryer was great, and allows you to pack light and wash your bath towels. The rooms themselves and bathrooms were spacious and clean. The beds were good, but the pillows were sad, flat, and not comfy. The furniture in the living room is not very comfy, but as expected. TV in each room is nice.
The arcade was nice. The little market there is for emergencies only as of course it's all overpriced.As we wanted to get to the parks at opening, we did not use the shuttle provided by the resort. We were willing to pay for parking and have the freedom to leave when we wanted to since there is only 1 or 2 each day, each direction.
All in all, we had a great week with no problems. Most of the cons I've listed are nitpicking, but probably would cause us to look elsewhere next visit."
