Clean and nice.

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to stay. Centrally located and convenient to the pool and offices. The beds were a little hard for us, but if you need very firm this won't be an issue for you. There were issues with the lights in the twin room but the onsite maintenance took care of it right away. Good time and good value overall.

CONDO 5 STARS, RESORT 4 STARS.

  • 4 of 5

Condo 5 stars: We spend the week of Christmas in the Condo L. 3 adults, 2 kids. We all fit no problem. Location was awesome. Condo is closed to everything you need. Only 10mn from Universal and 20mn from Disney Parks. Publix was 2mn away and Walgreens at a walking distance. We had a great time. Furniture was a little big for the space but condo was comfortable, clean and well maintain. Kitchen had everything we needed. Washer and dryer were nice to have. Balcony offered a nice view to the front area.

Resort 4 stars: Our unit was not ready for check-in at 4pm, which is time mentioned on paperwork about this rental. Lady at front desk said check-in was between 4 and 6pm. Our condo was ready just before 6pm. So we had to wait around for 2 hours. It was frustrating as we just drove over 6 hours. Receptionist wasn't very nice either.

Weather was colder than usual so we only used the pool once. Pool was not heated as advertised so water was cold and only the kids were brave enough to swim. We did not try to hot tub as it was crowded with people avoiding the cold pool. Only 1 same person was in charge of the bar and the shop so it took a while to get our drinks or food, but she was super nice. Besides that, resort is very clean and well maintained.

First Florida trip....what a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

As this was my family trip to Orlando I was guided by recommendations from friends who had already been. This condo was recommended by someone who had previously stayed here and was one of the best decisions of the holiday.

It was in a great location for universal and sea world and everything in between, all the shops restaurants and entertainment on international drive were in very easy reach.

The facilities on site were first class, the pool area was a great place to wind down after a long day at the parks.

The condo was everything you could want. Clean (possibly most important), spacious, all the mod cons. something as simple as the washing machine means you need very little luggage as you can just wash your clothes.

The all staff were very helpful and polite.

The local supermarket was a short walk and the pizza shop is very tasty.

All in all I would highly recommend staying at Vistacay and it would be my first choice when I return to Orlando in the future.

Great condo, great host

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great! It was clean, nice view, great amenities. Staff was very friendly. It did have a slight mildew smell which the staff attributed to the recent hurricane, but a trip to Publix (so convenient) for febreeze fixed that easily. The location is so convenient to everything! Best of all is the host! Communication was great, and the host is very willing to work with you when able. Thank you!
