Great Stay with Kids!!
by inmomof3
We chose this resort because of the pirate theme and the cool pools. We have 3 young boys, this resort did not disappoint us. It was great. Pools were neat, and heated which was great for a February vacation. The mini golf on site was nice ... more too. You could pay $25 per person and have unlimited mini golf all week. They had great activities for the kids to do if you weren't visiting a park that day.

Overall, it was a great value as we purchased a Getaway from Interval International for $500 for the week. Drive to Disney wasn't too far, Seaworld is very close. I would stay here again.

Best one Yet!
by tsolen
We stayed at the Marriott for 3 days/2 nights, which wasn't long enough. We found a great deal on the Internet and was very worried about it. After reading some of the reviews, I was still worried about it. I am so glad we went with our gut and booked our stay at ... more the Marriott anyway.

When we arrived here we were greeted by an extremely friendly girl at the front desk. She provided us with all the information we could ask for, and more. In fact every staff person throughout our stay was helpful and happy, which is hard to find these days.

When we opened the room to our hotel it was WOW! That is the first word I could think of to describe it. It was a 1 bedroom suite with a sleeper sofa. It was very spacious for my family of 5. We had a full kitchen that had all the dishes, drink ware, and cooking ware. It had a washer/dryer in the closet witch was very helpful with the wet towels. The bathroom was huge and it had a nice screened in porch. "This room is cleaner then our house." My oldest daughter said. She was right, the room looked brand new. My other daughter walked right into the patio door, because the glass was so clean.

We really enjoyed the pool areas especially the one with the pirate ship. It is nice to have that shallow are and then a deeper area all within one pool. It was nice we could hang out by the pool together as a family. Other hotels it is me and my son hanging at the kiddie pool, and my husband with our daughters at the other pool. We enjoyed the splash zone when we were tired of swimming. We had some awesome water cannon fights there, that we will never forget.

We participated in the kids activities that were pool side. If the kids participated that received tokens to turn in for prizes which was nice. We did not participate in the other activities that were scheduled due to our busy schedule. They had family scavenger hunts, fishing, karaoke, ice cream social, and more that sounded like fun. My husband really liked the exercise room, which he said had nice equipment in it. We Enjoyed the on site miniature golf in the evenings to wind the kids down. In the morning my kids enjoyed the pool tables and basketball court.

There were no restaurants on site, but that did not bother us at all. We stopped at the grocery store at stocked our room with food. Much cheaper for a family of to do that then to eat out for every meal. Lunch meat at cereal goes a long way.

We will definitely come back to this Marriott the next time we are in Orlando. It is one of the BEST hotels we have ever been to. Whenever we hear that someone is going to Orlando w recommend the Marriott to them. To this day we still talk about the fun we had there. Thank you Marriott for the GREAT memories we have!

Best I ever Had
by darrius1st
This was my families best vacation by far. I purchased a getaway from Interval Internation for $487 for the week. They had everything we needed in the room and it was plenty of space for all 7 of us. The kids loved the pools and the playground and ... more Mini golf. It was perfect. If you are traveling with young kids and teenagers this is the place to go.

We were going to the park for 4 days but only went two days. They had so many activities for kids of all ages. The stores were real close and you are close to everything you need Publix and Walmart. The staff was great and very helpful. I did go on there timeshare presentation and I must say it was the worst presentation ever. The sales lady was very nice and not really pushy. If I had not owned a timeshare that ii want to get rid of i would have got one here and the are expanding so next year it will be even better.

Overall I have to rate this resort a 10.

Great stay at Mariott's Harbour Lake!
by subay
When planning this trip, we debated between staying at much less expensive accommodations and using the cash we saved towards tickets to a water park or staying at the Harbour Lake, which included a little-kid friendly water park right at ... more the resort. Wow did we make the right choice for our family! Disclosure: we're not a theme park family. Our kids like to have their own space, and they like to stick to their own schedule. Staying at a resort like the Harbour Lake let us have the best of both worlds: a great villa with a full, beautiful kitchen, booth-style dining room table, two flat screen tvs, a wonderful screened-in porch, and a resort with an outstanding zero-entry pool with a great pirate ship fountain with multiple water slides, warm water, tasty poolside drinks, etc. etc. etc. Thanks Harbour Lake!

Pools, Slides and Disney Oh, My
by midwifenv
We stayed at Horizons for 1 week while we planned on enjoying Disney World and Kennedy Space Center. The resort was close to shopping and the freeway for easy access to anywhere we wanted to go. In February, it actually got cold (not sure ... more if that is normal for Central Florida), but the pool was often too cold to play in. My boys wished there was an indoor portion to the pools for those cold days and nights. However, when it was warm enough, the pools and slides were almost more tempting to them than Disney (I said almost). We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation using Horizons, especially with the helpful staff we encountered.
