    My return to orange Lake

    Orange lake is like a well oiled machine. My visit was very nice and in fact pretty flawless. They provide all the tools needed to have a great stay and the rest is up to you. Actually it is a perfect spot for families with children, but if you are just looking to destress and relax it works as well. Our unit was so relaxing.

    Use to be one of my Favorite Resorts

    We visited Orange Lakes back in 2009 and it was marvelous. Sad to see it go downhill. It all started with my initial reservation. The person on the phone promised I would be guaranteed River Island if I paid extra (about $100/night) versus the $149 rate online. I agreed because that is a great section of the resort. Upon arrival at check in, and after waiting over an hour in line, talking to three different agents, I was given River Island but had to pay an extra $120/night. I am now at $369/night. It was late, I was tired, so I accepted. The next day I got a call from the front desk. I thought it was to apologize for my initial experience. Instead it was a time share salesman who was trying to get me to take a tour. When I declined, he was extremely rude and asked why I even picked up the phone. Next, I learned that not only are towels not available poolside but that if you misplace the ones in the room, you get charged $25 per lost towel. My kids were panicking every time they misplaced their towels. We were never told of this policy when we checked in. Those were the worst parts. Some additional things to consider: -While there is a Publix on the grounds, their prices are almost double a regular store further away, -The pool bars are fine but the drinks are very expensive. -Speaking to a few owners, they said the resort has declined vs when they first joined. -There was a raccoon near our building who ate the trash barrel near the building entrance. -Check in is really long regardless the time of day. -The rooms and pools are nice but not worth the above aggravation. -When I called IHG upon returning home, to relay my experience, it took a long time to get a real person. When I did, they claimed that because it is more of a Timeshare vs a hotel, there is not much they can do. Sadly. if I return to the Orlando area, I will be spending my dollars elsewhere.

    North Village

    Excellent accommodations, very spacious, we stayed in the North Village. Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Orange Lake Resort is well maintained and everyone is very friendly and helpful. There is so much that you can do at this resort.

    Beautiful, comfortable and fabulous amenities

    We came to do Disney but we needed down time and this place was perfect. Floating in the lazy river was wonderful although I could do without the water dropping from the bridge on my head! Rooms were large and had more than expected. Definitely coming back.
