In the 90s' when this place was new it was a great gated location to rent apartments with families on holidays. Today, that can no longer be said as the standards of maintenance and cleanliness have gone down. Sad that this once beautiful place is no longer what it used to be........clean and well maintained. Until such time when management decide to repair the Appliances, change Couches and Carpets and improve cleanliness, It will always get a low rating in Tripadvisor and low recomendations.
Picture staying at a multi-building apartment complex with a communal pool and fitness area and you have the Oak Plantation Resort. We stayed in a one bedroom on the second floor in Building 8. Overall the accommodation was satisfactory for the price. The perks are a full kitchen (albeit with minimal cooking utensils), an in-suite laundry, and free daily shuttles to Disney World. The pool area was nice and had the bonus of a tiki bar. The decor is slightly dated, the mattress was uncomfortable and the overall cleanliness has room for improvement (the sinks in the kitchen and bathroom were backed up with standing water).
Hello, let me start by saying this review took a turn for worse. I originally would have given it a 3 probably but now I would not rate it at all. We booked/reserved this stay through their online website which needs updating, pics and just the format. We arrive with an okay welcome, registration takes a bit as it is either their system or staff. We are in 103 and it is worn out, the decor, furniture, the outdoor facilities only one light working out of four on the tennis court so advantage to someone LOL. the games room should not be called a games room with only 4 non popular games. This place is just in need of dire updates throughout for the amount they charge. They should really be asking you how much they want you to stay. Really the only positive was location as it was 12 mins to Disney Hollywood Studios. But you can find somewhere closer for the same amount. Anyways that isn't even the worse part. we are now trying to recover funds since our credit card was charged twice. We have records saying the MasterCard was charged twice and Oak Plantation says once. We are letting Mastercard resolve the double charge of over 1000.00$ The staff on the phone was inconsiderate and obstinate. They never responded to us when they said they would. Please look elsewhere.…
When we went to check in they could not find our reservations and took about an hour to check because of it. Both pools were closed which left us only the kid pool open... the water only goes up to our calf’s in this pool... The resort did not match the pictures online. It is way more run down in person. The breakfast is not free which is stated on the website. It is about 25 mins away from disney world and advertised as close to the parks. Management did not handle concerns well. The room itself was nice but that was the only positive.
Stayed for 2:weeks at Oak Plantation,! Would HIGHLY recommend! The staff are great! Accommodating, friendly, helpful, prompt to respond. They are dedicated to ensuring your visit is a safe happy one! The peacocks and other birds were awesome! The pools are the best I have seen in my many travels! Love this place! You will too!
