"Beautiful elegant, surprisingly good for kids too"
As soon as we walked through the door we were greeted wonderfully. Our kids were given coloring in and bands which entitled then to free ice cream.
The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Nice and modern.
The ritz kids was just superb, our kids actually preferred their kids club to disney world. This is complimentary for first 2 hours and they will order food for children also.
We used this while we went for dinner in the highball reataurant, I tried a cocktail which was delicious but surprisingly small for $15, I asked for it with less ice and my drink was not full, thurs time I asked for no ice and received a shot size portion. I did feel like the lady should have just poured me what I wanted, especially as 3 drinks down and $45 later I still didn't get what I clearly wanted.
Besides that all was grand. The food and service throughout our stay was fabulous. The pool area was beautiful. Everything was very expensive which I surposed is to be expected. Great staff, kids club and facilities.

We stayed in Villa 62, on fourth floor with great view of Lake. My teenage kids loved the activity center, chess, ping pong, arcade, pool, basketball, bocce, billiards, they made their own pizzas one night...lots of fun. And that is when we were not visiting one of the many theme parks all located within 5 to 15 min drive.
Hotel staff were super friendly and made sure we enjoyed our stay. We will definitely come back next time we are in Orlando. We may actually come back just to stay here. So much to do...and you don't even notice we are not near a beach (with the nice lake).

"Great Hotel Near Universal-Exceeded Expectations"
I loved this hotel. First off, there's a shuttle to Disney; although there is not a shuttle to Universal, it is extremely near. You keep driving straight down and you're there already in 3 minutes. Right when I checked in the hotel, there were cookies and a friendly front desk staff. I wish I could've taken down their names to personally thank them on here. Staff is very helpful and nice. The hotel was very clean and the rooms were just as clean. No stains or trash or dirt anywhere on the beds or elsewhere. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept on--not just in a hotel but anywhere. I could barely get up in the morning because I just wanted to lie there. Front desk staff in the morning was just as great as the night staff. And also, let me say this--I am super picky when it comes to 'continental breakfast,' but I really liked the breakfast options. I would definitely stay there again. Love the location, comfort, staff, food, everything.
