We stayed here with our two young sons and had a fabulous time. The unit was spacious, comfy beds. Living room furniture cheap and uncomfortable, but I guess that's to be expected. The one time we had a maintenance issue they reponded within 15 minutes, issue was fixed immediately, and as soon as the guy left management called to ask if we were taken care of. Wonderful.

The pools are a kids dream. The big pool had two water slides, lots of room. Loved the music and the DJ. Contests and games for the kids. We rented one of their cabanas for two days (pricey) was great to have a place out of the sun, had a fan and an ice bucket.

The second pool (indoor/outdoor) was a nice quieter change. My kids always chose that one for their evening swim.

The entire property was well maintained. Whenver you saw staff walking their heads were constantly swiveling, looking to make sure all was well.

Our time share rules only allow us to come to this property every 4 years. We will definitely be back as soon as they will let us!

This resort is beautifully maintained and furnished. Thanks to a tip on here, I asked for a new unit upon check in and we ended up in Building 8, right by the huge outdoor pool. The units are clean and well stocked. I stayed there for almost 2 weeks with 2 teenagers. The food at the restaurant by the pool was very tasty. The pool itself is never that busy. You can always get a deck chair. The resort is only about a 10 minute drive to Disney and about a 3 minute drive to an excellent Prime Outlet Mall.
One complaint was that the water in the unit had a bad odour and taste to it, but we soon found out that most of Orlando's drinking water is that way. The other complaint is that the lightbulbs at the vanity area and in the bathrooms are too low wattage. You cannot see your face to do your hair and makeup or shave. They seem about a 3 watt bulb, similar to a Noma Moonray in your garden. It is like you are in a dark bar.
But overall, I would strongly recommend this resort to anyone.

The hotel was recommendable but the problem I encountered was "BED BUGS" are on the masterbedroom and they made a feast out of me, I made a write-up and the hotel staff assists me and they give me a spray away for bed bugs.
If you encounter this problem just report it right away and they move you to another room.
Also, no Flat screen TV yet and the AC is noisy!

it was a family trip and more for disney parks and this place is amazing to stay with young, teen's or older's. it was spotless. they have 10 buildings and all of them built after 2003. we stayed in building#8 (condo with 2bdr & 2 bathrooms, jacuzzi & kingsize bed m. bdr and 2 double beds in 2nd room and sofa bed. plenty of room) that is 2yrs old and . everything is modern. but internet is too expensive. $10 for 24hrs. or weekly is $30 or $40 not sure. they have free shuttle service to Disney Epcot and then disney provide a shuttle service to all parks( magic kingdom, animal kingdom, disney hollywood). seaworld & Aquatica is 2-3 miles from hotel, about $10 by taxi but i found seaworld is waste of money if its too hot then Aquatica is worth it. grocery store is about half a mile. i definatly stay there again and i recommend to everyone else too. no time sharing or anything like that. if you don't want room service you save that too and there is no extra hotel fee etc.

this was absolutely the best hotel/resort i have ever stayed in. we had a 2 bedroom suite, and their were me, my husband, 5 kids. ages 13-5mo old. this was plenty big for all of us. very clean and everything we needed was well stocked (detergent, cooking supplies). those kinds of things. my kids also loved the pools. their favorite was the indoor/outdoor pool. i didnt know when we stayed their that we were so close to so many neet places to visit. practically walking distance to seaworld. at first, they had a room on the 5th floor reserved for us. i explained about all the kids and twin 5 mo olds and they quickly got us a first floor room and it was close to the pools too. would deffinately stay here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Set within 54 acres surrounding the serene natural setting of Lake Eve, and located along popular International Drive, The Fountains offers everything you would expect from a world-class resort as well as the convenience of a central location. The Fountains has its own claim to fame- Bluegreen's Wakoola Springs. This 75,000-square-foot tropical oasis sets itself apart from an everyday pool with two water slides*, a zero-entry pool, interactive water fountains, two hot tubs. Cross over the two bridges on the campus and head over to one of two fire circles for evening stargazing and relaxation. With so many on-site amenities for both adults and kids, not to mention the hundreds of attractions in and around Orlando, you'll want to plan an extended stay to fit it all in. Our two-bedroom villas are richly appointed with all the comforts of home—and then some. Most feature a screened balcony overlooking the lake, a fully equipped kitchen and a garden tub. The decor is elegant and tasteful with many focused on water, lake or pool views. ... more   less
