Rated 1 out of 5 by dreamtso customer experience
My family and I stayed during the October holiday weekend. As Owners for over 10 years we have come to expect high quality to match the price that one invest in the starwood experience. To be brief, when we checked in we found mold on the bathroom walls and floor molding. I contacted starwood first and later management at vistana villages to share the experience and pictures I took they offered....I didn't ask to credit my account. it didn't happen, I contacted them again still nothing. so I cant in good confidence recommend staying knowing they cant deliver on what they promise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ron2015 Really a Timeshare
My wife and I were staying at the Vestana during a business convention. We have stayed at similar Starwood type facilities in the past and were looking forward to our stay at this location. At check In the experience was very welcoming. We were informed that the cleaning was to be done every two days. we checked in on Saturday and the first cleaning was on Sunday. On Monday they cleaned, because our reservation was changed to the family rate. They also cleaned on Monday and never came again.
We ran out of clean towels and after a series of questions, being told it was a time share situation, the woman on the phone said she would provide towels as a courtesy, but would charge 10.00 per towel in the future.
Also during the week we ran out of toilet paper and my wife had the same type of conversation.
Please understand that my wife and I are not demanding, and really enjoyed the unit. It would have been nice to have been informed that cleaning, fresh towels and toilet paper was our responsibility.
We always have a pleasant experience at all the Starwood properties, this is the first time I felt I needed to make some comments.

Rated 3 out of 5 by neil32 It,s just too noisy so very little sleep
We have just returned from staying 7 nights in building 1 in the bella area of the resort. The rooms themselves are nice but a little snug.
Our room overlooked the main pool deck and at 7.30am every morning there would be loud music playing from the pool area even though there was no one using it, it woke us up every morning as it was so loud, it must be on a timer as when we were the the clocks went back so for 2 mornings the loud music came on at 6.30am so for the seven days we were not allowed to snooze in bed due to the noise.
I rang reception and complained 3 times even speaking to Jennifer Perez (front desk lead) who was very sympathetic and apologised numerous times but the very next morning after speaking to her the music kicked off at 6.30am.
Also you can hear every toilet in the block being flushed all hours of the day and night, so after my 7 days of virtually no sleep I was glad to get out of there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WantsMoreTravel Avoid the restaurant!
Overall, this is a great property. We had three rooms for a family vacation. Our granddaughter has allergies and we requested non-feather pillows, which we received. However, something in the living area caused her face to swell up and constant sneezing/runny nose. It wasn’t until the last day that we found that if was only the living area of our son’s room.
The elevators are VERY slow, so a bottom floor may be desired.
Avoid the restaurant at all costs. First, most people staying here are going to go to the parks, which open at 9. The restaurant doesn’t open until 8 which does not give you enough time to eat and get to the parks for opening. My last day, I was the first one in the restaurant and wanted to place a carry out order. The person taking carry out orders skipped me and took another person’s order first. I ordered the pancakes with bacon for my wife and the omelet with wheat toast and some salsa or hot sauce for me. It took over 30 minutes from the time I entered the restaurant until I got my order. There were at least 8 people that came in after me that were eating by the time I got my order. When I got back to my room and opened the containers, I found that my wife got 4 pancake (menu said 5) and sausage (ordered bacon). I did not receive toast of any kind nor any hot sauce for my omelet. Totally unacceptable service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kady2014 Beautiful Property!
This is such a gorgeous property. The pools are incredible! My son could not get enough of the pirate ship pool. The 2-bedroom suite we booked was great for a family of 4. We had a full kitchen, 2 big bathrooms, and a great balcony with a view. Very clean and tastefully decorated and stocked with everything we needed. And all for an excellent price!
There were a few small issues - problems with the wifi, the clothes dryer not working properly, and the beds were really hard for my taste (but I guess that's just personal preference.)
I would also implore anyone staying there to avoid eating on the property. We went for breakfast at the Flagler Station Restaurant and it was very disappointing. My husband and son both ordered the pancakes ($10 and $8) and were actually served those rubbery microwave pancakes and syrup in little disposable cups. Either make fresh pancakes or don't put them on the menu. Ridiculous. If I'm paying $40 for breakfast I expect it to be freshly made.
Aside from the restaurant and the small room issues, we were very pleased. We would definitely return to this property. We were busy at Disney so didn't get to check out all the on-sight activities, but they sounded fun in the flyer.
