Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Pros: Stayed here for my 50th. All communication is via email and staff get back to you really fast and are happy to answer. The villa was a six bed 6 bath which is what drew me to the balmoral as a big family we all wanted our own bathrooms which the Balmoral can cater for. It is 20 mins further out than we would have liked but you have to drive regardless and as it was cheaper than other resorts we were happy to add the extra travel time on. Located on the 27 which is a nice stretch of road and easy to navigate. I only popped in to the club house to extend check out so can’t comment but it appeared clean and staff on reception. Cons : Staff only available during office hours although you do have 24 hr helpline ( I just like face to face contact ) Villa had no booklets like others which say how to use cookers and tv and utilities. Had to work it out ourself. IA booklet would be useful like other resorts. Non iron board for clothes. Had to iron on the floor Driveway small. Only fits two cars. However you do get car park pass to park in bays along the road which is good and the guarage we had was big enough for two medium size cars. so probably not a con so to speak. Advertised as gated resort. There were no staff on the gates and they were open at all times. Not good as I would have liked to take a walk in the evening but with anyone allowed to enter I didn’t like that idea. Overall the Balmoral is a good place to use as a base to get around. I would stay there again

Property's Favourite Review
We were here for 2 weeks through virgin and were upgraded to a 5 bed villa instead of a 4. We had a view overlooking a small lake which was really nice and welcome as it meant we were not overlooked. So of the other homes we close together so the pool areas were almost back to back. Our villa was incredibly well equipped though to be really fussy it didnt have any baking trays it did have a pyrex though so we used that. We loved the plumbed fridge as much as the pool. Everything worked as it should do. If i wanted to be fussy a few of the tiles were cracked and the sofa leather looked shabby/old however it was immaculately clean which is the most important thing. The girls at the club house were lovely and very friendly. We chose not to use the water park on the complex it is a lot smaller than the pictures lead you to believe and it can be used by the public. Likewise; the gates are only locked about 10pm over night. There is also a lot of long term renters there; all pleasent enough but be aware if you are expecting only holiday makers. A few houses around us had parties/loud music but it didn't worry us as once the door was closed we couldn't hear it. We did have a small issue with our neighbour having a late pool party early hours of the morning however the resort were quick to forward our email to the relevant people. Not too sure what day bin day is as mostly the bins are always out. Also the events centre is used for parties too. There was one when we were there, though it didn't bother us as our villa was nearer the back of the complex and the events house is at the top there was 4 police cars managing it as we believe there was too many people in attendance. The drive is hwy27 jct 55 for about 8 miles East to I4. At times it took us an hour to get to the parks and back but the drive was OK we found some times were busier than others but that's no different to the UK. Food wise you can walk to the publix within about 10 minutes which has everything you need. And there's a store next door to boiuy inflatables for the pool. We would stay there again if we came back.

We arrived to the house. I asked for a 3bed 3 bath ranch. My parents are handicapped and can not do stairs. We pull up to the 4bed 4bath 2 story house. The front of the driveway is blocked by a sinkhole with cones around it. We go into the home very pretty and clean. The pool was gated off and perfect for my 2 yr old. The house had limited resources. No wash clothes or hand towels. The pan to cook on was a miniature sheet pan. There was a Pyrex dish as well. Not enough to cook for 7 ppl. We go up to the front to check out the amenities. The splash pad was not working. The big pool was full of bugs. No pool table sticks and missing a ball. The arcade was half broken. The mini golf is in the back full of weeds same as the volleyball. I asked about the giant outside chess game, they got rid of it. I asked the front desk about games we could check out all they had was yatzee which was missing pieces. On Labor day we hung out in the front my mother put her purse with 380$ in cash n her glove box. Had the window cracked. Doors locked. Someone broke into her car took only the cash. I also had 20$ cash in my wallet at the table which was taken too. Very disappointmented. I did like that they had bingo and karaoke. I spoke to the manager about the amenities not being to par and she refunded the resort fees. Orlando is a hour away not close to and parks. We actually went to the county pool one day which was fun. Overall we made the best of 7 days 6 nights. I will never return. It's a shame because if they took care of this place it would be the perfect stay and play dream vacation spot. But there understaffed and if you ask the employees anything they have no clue. It's just run down and poorly managed.

Booked through Virgin holidays. We stayed here for 28 nights. We expected it to be a bit of a distance from the theme parks and it was. Is being sold as a gated community, it is gated but gates are never shut, also has a rear exit to the resort onto a bit of a run down area of Haines City. Good Points - Villa appearance was modern / spacious for a 3 bedroom / nice size pool area with sun beds / on site bar and grill (but never used) / close to publix supermarket Bad Points - Distance from all theme parks / not gated as advertised / could do with some touching up (painting and furniture repairs) / pool was cleaned once in our entire stay (after a request to the management) Can’t really comment on the resort bar and grill / entertainment as we never used it. To be fair I have stayed in a lot worse but also stayed in better villas.

Amazing stay We were worried about our stay due to the reviews, but I can honestly say everything was brilliant. They left us beach towels dishwasher and fairy liquid, each bathroom had its own body wash/shampoo etc. and towels. The pool was brilliant although the pool light didn’t work it didn’t make an difference to our stay. Time wise it was 30-45mins away from the parks but that’s only due to traffic, nothing more. We found some brilliant restaurants on highway 27.. The complex bar and grill was lovely and all the staff where friendly. We had a little accident and the staff told us it was okay and sorted it straight away. I would recommend this resort 110%

On arrival, villa had ripped sofas, a hole in the wall and dishwasher which contained grease and other debris. Turned out it was broken! Bannister had not been dusted in months. Outside table was for 4 people despite the villa supposedly able to host 10! Was advertised as a luxury villa however everything was basic and not. A patch on previous properties we have stayed in. Manager at the restaurant was very helpful and the maintenance manager in particular couldn’t do enough. Eventually got the cleaning fee refunded and two nights accommodation because it took 3 days to sort.never got a call back from facilities manager just impersonal emails despite telephoning. The team.

Just got home from staying here for 6 nights, lovely house, seamless check in and check out, prompt and polite customer service when needed - the dishwasher wasn’t working, was fixed within 24hours. Everything was lovely and clean, the pool was brilliant. It’s a bit of a trek from the main parks (45mins) but it wasn’t too bad a drive if you stay off the I4.

We are glad that you enjoyed your Holiday here at Balmoral Resort. We work had to maintain the resort for our guest to enjoy during their stay. We do that there is currently construction on the interstate that is causing delayed travel times. We hope that you will consider Balmoral Resort whenever you are traveling back to our area.

Firstly, Balmoral Resort is lovely and the resort is kept clean and tidy. Prior to travelling there are a number of waivers you need to sign prior to arriving, namely waivers for the water park which forms part of the bar and grill area. Resort communicates mainly through email and issues in advance of your arrival date information on how to access the resort and your Villa. Our Villa was booked through Virgin Holidays and the Villa was in a good state of repair and was clean throughout, reading other reviews it does depend on who you hire your Villa from. We stayed for 16 days which included a 14 day Disney pass for the theme parks which brings me to the following .. Positives for the resort in our opinion being it was clean and a gated community with the gates being closed late evening, you need a pass code (emailed) to open the gates if you arrive back later than 10pm. Negatives being there is no actual security on resort, we had an unfortunate situation where the Villa next door was rented for short time (Weekend) and it was little more than a party house with music being played excessively loud to the early hours of the morning. We did complain and notify the resort the following morning only to be advised by the staff to dial 911 after 9pm, resort also failed to respond to our concerns. Additionally, we informed the Virgin Holiday USA reps (Whatsapp) who showed little interest and referred you to the resort which in turn had no provisions to manage or deal with the problem. Note other reviews also mentioning excessively noisy neighbours to the early morning with no support from the resort ! Onto the Disney World theme parks, the parks are on average 45-50 minutes away, not 25-30 minutes away. The Interstate 4 is little more than a car park regardless of the time of day. This is without doubt the determining factor for our decision to stay on resort next time, morning commute down US Highway 27 was not too bad however the fun starts when you join the Interstate 4. Congestion and roadworks are the main contributors but be aware Balmoral Resort is some way out and after a full day in the parks the last thing you want to be doing in queuing on the Interstate to get back to the resort. I cannot emphasise this one point enough, if you are staying at the Balmoral to travel to the Disney theme parks be fully prepared to queue in the morning and evening on average 45 minutes each way. In summary, lovely resort! could do with its own security to manage problems in resort however the real detractor being the distance, travel companies will try and market the Balmoral as being “Commutable” to the parks but in reality it is just that litle bit too far away.

We are glad that you enjoyed your Holiday here at Balmoral Resort. We work had to maintain the resort for our guest to enjoy during their stay. I am very sorry that the guest in the next villa was loud, however there is an emergency number included on your pre-arrival paperwork that would have been happy to assist. We do that there is currently construction on the interstate that is causing delayed travel times. We hope that you will consider Balmoral Resort whenever you are traveling back to Florida.

Let me start with the positive. On emailing guest services they responded quickly. On arriving we realised we didn’t have enough cutlery and they sorted that quickly. However ; the villa itself was not up to standard. I did not book villa directly; but the Virgin holidays and was led to believe that as a new resort the standard was good. The villa itself was not well maintained inside. The oven had cleaner sprayed in it but not wiped away. Stains on carpet; heavily stained bedroom lampshade; curtain pole sagging as a support was missing. On night 2 or 3 my daughter’s bed gave way during the night as the slats popped out. We had to support bed by putting her suitcase underneath. The seating area was inadequate with only 2 sofas in a villa that can accommodate 14. Numerous glasses were chipped . I did not email guest services with these complaints because after a long flight and a family of 11; no one can fathom the idea of being moved. My 83 year old father in law was with and it seemed like an enormous task so we made the best of it. But it lacked home comforts and didn’t even have a corkscrew,

We stayed at the Balmoral Resort in a 4 bedroom house with pool. The facilities were great and as a family we enjoyed our stay in the house. The only slight difficulty was drying washing, we didn’t want to use the tumble dryer and there were no facilities to hang out clothes. Facilities staff were helpful when the lock on our front door stopped working!
