what a place
16 of us stayed here in august! what a fantastic place!!! everything you could possibly want was there .the outside area was a big hit as was the pool table! the location was brilliant, close to shops, restaurants and not forgetting the parks!! everyone was very sad to leave and wished we had booked for 3 weeks. if we go back to orlando again we will definitely be booking this place!!!!
