I had read a few recent negative recent reviews and was worried. Our stay was close to perfect. Our room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. The Club room and express passes were magnificent.

Great hotel. Awesome food. Water Taxi was available all the time and the drivers were very friendly. The pool was beautiful. Could not see the film with the lights on but that did not matter. The hot tub was great.

I would have the hotel book a van to pick up and drop off. I believe the hotel has basics but I would pick up before or at CVS which is nearby.
