Hotel Crashing at Grande Villas Resort
Reviewed 7 September, 2021
We would give a 6.6/10 for the Grande Villas Resort in Orlando.
The overall property was very nice and it included two large, beautiful pools with a hot tub, a playground, mini golf, corn hole, fire pits, grills, hammocks, Adirondack chairs, a convenience store, a restaurant and bar, and activity center, benches and “porch” swings around the property, and a fitness center.
The actual room was VERY small for our liking and not much space if you live in hotels like we do. If you're a traveling couple only staying a few days to visit the tourist attractions, you will be fine. But it's cramped for a long stay unless you spend most of your time in the bedroom. ; )
The location was great for getting out and doing things and the price was very reasonable. The noise was too much and there were a lot of obnoxious guests so that killed the chill vibe. Other than that it's not a bad place to stay but we certainly wouldn't go back given our needs.
After Coming for 11 straight year this is the last time

Is not a Surprise at all that if you ask for a request they will never grant what you asked, We where coming since 2010 and as always you need to beg about what you Requested, Their excuses are always the same, “They are 100% capacity” last time we asked for pool view within 2 weeks prior to our visit and they gave us the worst room you can have at any hotel, A room with all around 100% zero visibility, Today we asked that is ok they don’t have any pool view but we beg to them that Please!! Don’t send us to a room as the last one, Sooo you know what?? They gave us a worst one, 0 visibility than the last one, Trees touching all windows, We have a 7 Years old Daughter, She is with almost no animosity, Our home is a lot better place than this forest look a like, Last time I fought about it but not this time, We talk as a Family and we agree better to rent an RV and so something better and different, Im not gonna pay to not be happy, If you really live in a good place don’t come to a places like this, just go somewhere better than your home, Manager and new lady were very straight to us with no choices at all, They just keep saying they are 100% full capacity while employees say they always do that so they save those room for later, Please see pictures.

My family and I vacationed at Grande Villas Resort and enjoyed our stay. It has all the necessary things to keep kids occupied during Covid 19, ie pool, mini golf, table tennis. The resort was very clean and the staff extremely professional and friendly. We will definitely stay there again.
Don't stay here

Booked a 1 bedroom through a 3rd party website. I called hotel to see if I can pay for an upgrade. I was told yes when I checked in. That was a lie. Next thing. Upon checking in at 6pm. My room wasn't ready. They gave me a what look like a extremely small handicapped room. If you are looking for some piece and quiet don't come here. Guest and staff were extremely loud at 2 in the morning and staff talked loud right outside your door at 7 in the morning. Rooms are very outdated. I really wanted to like this place. I wanted to do a tour and see what else they had to offer but i just wasn't feeling it. Take your family elsewhere. There are plenty of resort style hotels around Kissimmee and Orlando.
Good but they wont go the extra mile... not even an inch...

I visited here with the kids and family, 6 guests in total, main reason was visiting theme parks. This hotel is very well located, close to de parks, we didn't try any ammenities since we woke up early leave and return very tired form the parks.
Room was great 2 bedrooms and sofabed in the living area, in terms of cleanness I think they have room for improvement, particulary in bathrooms, and rug.
Things to take into consideration: Be prepared to clean on your own since no housekeeping, only if your stay goes for more than a week. So make your bed, do the dishes, etc.
My main issue with this hotel was that I wanted to extend my stay for one day, and they made it really expensive to do so, even that they told me that the room wasn't booked fee was almost x3
So if visiting plan carefully. Will take this option in to consideration when returning but now without looking for more offering in the area.
