Great experience once we got checked in.
First, I'd say we enjoyed staying at Orange Lake. The 2 bedroom 2 bathroom suite exceeded our expectations. The room was clean and very well appointed. We would stay here again without a doubt. Second, the check in experience was terrible. It quite literally took over a 1/2 HOUR to check in. PLUS, they do a hard sell to sit through their vacation club marketing deal. That was pretty annoying after waiting a half hour to check in (after being exhausted from a day at Disney). The entire compound is massive and there are tons of things to do from swimming in a bunch of pools, a lazy river, golf, Karaoke, etc. We were bummed that the restaurants and bars were not open late though.

I love this place. This was my second time staying in this hotel. I highly recommended it for you vacations. Many things you can do here. You can dedicate a complete day to stay at the hotel and enjoy all the amenities that they have there.

Good option but but some inconveniences
It’s a nice place with a lot to do but somethings were pretty inconvenient. Maybe this is due to the pandemic but they have basketball, tennis, pickle ball and volleyball courts to use but no balls/paddles. And they don’t tell you this when you book, so you either have to go buy them somewhere and then throw them away when you leave or try to fly them home with you (not convince my) or not use the courts. Also there is only one playground and it’s a long way from the kiddy pool/area, so far you have to drive to it. Also check-in and check-out both took 30 minutes. Far too long for something so simple, I had to go to three different desk just to simple check in and get a parking pass. Also new people ‘in-training’ where at pretty much every desk which made everything take a lot longer as was.

My Daughter and Son in Law were looking to stay here because other family has a timeshare. I’m a Spire member through Priority and booked them a 5 days stay. They get to use a lot of hotel points from me being a road warrior and have stayed in some pretty nice places all over. They were absolutely pleased with the whole experience and it was very clean they stated. They already want us / Mom and Dad to come and spend next winter with them there.

Very clean and very fun resort. The food and pricing is very reasonable. They have staff sanitizing and cleaning everything as you go around and makes you feel safe. We loved our time and looking forward to return.

Great hotel but with small issues for me.
I will first start off by saying the resort is very nice. The apartment is spacious, the pool is amazing and great location. With that being said from the first stay there has been small issues with each stay after. First stay the stove was broken and there were ants in the room. No big deal we called someone they came in and fixed it. The second stay there was a manager sitting in the room on his phone. He got up so fast and said someone is coming to fix the broken curtin and he left. That same stay there were palmetto bug (waterbugs) in the room. I'm from Florida and it was raining so again we did not let that ruin our stay(still nasty). The next stay we decided to give it another shot and booked a cabana in the water park. Long story short we did not get what we were told we would. I didn't want a big fuss so when I called just be sure what was included they ended up sending a manager over which we were ok until the manager from the restaurant came by. He spoke to us from a script and told us we didn't get service because it was slow and that we were ok because we brought down food (after waiting for a long time and finding out the server left) again we were just happy we were there and don't mind getting things for ourselfs. the server leaving was not a big deal even though that is what we paid a lot for(it was not cheap for us to be disregarded like nothing). It was the way it was handled. Like I said it is a great resort but relatively small things are unfortunately adding up for my family.
