Above Average

Posted Jan 11, 2018
Pros: Tradewinds is an exceptional restaurant with fair pricing, especially for a resort location. Walking trail was also a plus.
Cons: The room needs some attention. Carpet had stains and was rolling in several places. Cabinets were cheap. Furniture was not the most comfortable.
Location: This resort is about 20 minutes from Disney and maybe 30-35 minutes from Universal. Shopping and dining are within 10 minutes.
This resort is owned by Wyndham and so expectations were high. Last year, we stayed at their sister resort less than five miles away (Caribe Cove). This resort was larger. There are three pools, a splash pad, and a fishing dock (must have a fishing license). The staff was exceptionally helpful, but not overly friendly. Check-in was easy and the main building was welcoming. Free dvd rentals and gift shop are in this building. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean. However, there were stains on the carpet and some places where the carpet was rolling. The master bath was large, but the water pressure was low and hot water was scarce. We filled the tub to just half using only hot water and the water was tepid at best. Beds were comfortable but not exquisite. Televisions in each bedroom were small and the one in the living room was too small for the space. The sofa was not particularly comfortable. The kitchen was nice, but the cabinets were cheap and peeling. The dishwasher showed signs of wear and the refrigerator was not level so it shook each time you opened or closed the door. Not a major issue but a sign that they don't pay attention to details. Location of resort is a bit off the path. There is relatively easy access to US192, Irlo Bronson Highway, but plan in travel time to I4, Disney, Universal, Sea World, or downtown Orlando. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here and will stay here again.

Not high end, but nice

Posted Jan 7, 2018
Pros: Spacious. Friendly staff.
Cons: The somewhat gaudy paint colors in the reception area.
Location: The location seems off the beaten path. We needed our phone GPS to get there each day, but that wasn't too much of a problem.
We enjoyed our stay at Bahama Bay Resort. It's not a high end facility, but it's really nice, and we'd stay there again.

Nice Resort Amenities

Posted Jan 2, 2018
The decor was a little dated but overall the condo we stayed in was nice. The pool was great and spa, bar/ restaurant by pool was very convenient. Will likely come again.

Beautiful gated resort condominiums, heated pools

Posted Dec 26, 2017
Pros: everything
Beautiful well kept gated resort with multiple 3 level buildings. Nice clean pools (main pool open till 10pm with 2 hot tubs) 2 smaller pools around other condos. tuck shop. free DVD rentals and tea/coffee in lobby all the time. We had a 3 bedroom (king, Queen and 2 twins plus sofa bed. Full kitchen, dish washer, washer/dryermicrowave, LR, DR. 2 balconies. fans on ceiling. rented condo x 9 days. well equipped. no daily maid (Cleaned once you left). 40 min from airport and 30 min from disney so good to have car. free parking. This allowed us to prepare meals and eat supper outside. Publix groceries and gas close by (by car). Would stay here anytime. These are rentals of condo owners by the resort so well looked after.

Third Stay, Always Great!

Posted Dec 22, 2017
Pros: quiet,, large beautifully decorated rooms with lots of amenities, easy check-in.
Cons: Nothing!
Location: Close to all Disney parks, located in central Florida with easy access to either coast.
I will always stay here when in the the Orlando area. It is well priced, and the rooms are exceptional. There is no better bargain! The condos are well maintained, the staff is very friendly and efficient, and it is priced so much better than a hotel. The amenities are superior. I highly recommend that you give this place a try!

Nice Location But Needs Improvements

Posted Dec 9, 2017
Pros: Location, staff
Cons: Rooms, noise
Stayed here 2 years and loved it - this time not so much...first room was in building 5 and had carpet which made the room smell musty and very stuffy, bathroom vanity was broke on bottom and needed to be replaced..I tried leaving fans and patio door to air it out but could not get smell out. Asked for room change which the great front desk staff gladly did, moved us to building 7 with a room with no tile as I requested, room was clean but family above us were horrendous...it literally sounded like they were playing basketball or something and were going to come through tour ceiling at any time...some of our ceiling fixtures were vibrating ...the 3rd night of it I did call front desk and security was sent to ask them to quiet down at 1030 pm, I know they had children and I expect to hear noise from above but not like that...it’s a shame really because the property is in an ideal location, the grounds are beautiful and the all staff we encountered were friendly and helpful...but after talking to other people staying there I know many rooms needs updating and guests needs to respect all guests and not let their children run rampant at night, they need to be courteous of other guests.
