Bahama Bay Resort Orlando
The Bahama Bay Resort offers a prime location for those who want to experience the fun of Orlando and Disney, as well as an escape from the chaos of these tourist destinations. Comprised of one, two, and three-bedroom family condos and featuring lush natural surroundings, guests enjoy a tropical villa atmosphere at this resort. Rather than a luxurious hotel experience, each condo is made to feel like a home away from home with in-unit laundry, central air, and a fully equipped kitchen. Meanwhile, Disney World and Orlando are less than five miles away, making it an ideal location for a family trip.
Families will find it easy to keep kids entertained here, where four swimming pools, a children's play area, a splash pad, and sports courts are always brimming with energy and activity. However, quieter options for your trip are available as well, including heated in-ground spas, a fishing dock, and nature trails. Most guests take their meals on-site at Tradewinds Restaurant and Bar, which features beautiful views of the lake and the beach and a pub atmosphere complete with dart boards and billiards tables.
While not an upscale experience, guests enjoy the comfort and casual vibe found at Bahama Bay. Meanwhile, the location offers proximity to all the top area attractions.

Historical Traveler Reviews Bahama Bay Resort Orlando Davenport
The picky person's place to stay.
I am very very picky about where I stay and Bahama Bay lived up to my expectations. I stayed at the resort for 3 nights over the Labor Day holiday. The condo had all of the amenities promised. It was very clean and well appointed. You will be satisfied. The only problem I had was an odor in the hallway which I know was due to a pet. A notice to petowners, please follow the rules so you don't ruin a vacation for people who are allergic to your pets. There is a no pet policy for a reason.
Loved Bahama Bay Resort, Going Back Again!
We had a great time at Bahama Bay Resort. The 2bed/2 bath we stayed in was very pleasant and spacious with its 10 ft. ceilings. Everything was new as this resort only opened for business at the beginning of 2003. The resort is very convenient to all the Disney attractions, Splendid China, etc. We enjoyed the Caribbean feel to the resort, and it was a nice place to come home to after a day spent at Disney. We loved relaxing in front of the pool at the poolside restaurant. We definitely will return to this resort for our next trip to Disney World.
Fell in love w/Bahama Bay
I was very impressed with the condo. The rooms were spacious, there were TV's in every room and it even had a DVD player. The kitchen was equipped w/everything but food!!The interior was nicely decorated and everything was nice and clean. Towels and changes of sheets were abundant so there were no daily cleaning lady interruptions.. The screened balcony was wonderful for eating or just resting. Although we did not have any children traveling with us, there was a playpen and highchair in our unit. We really hated to leave but we do plan on returning to Florida and staying at this resort over and over again.
Wow! I ended up buying a home there
Fantastic, you can see disney fireworks every night over the lake, I have bought platinum apartments lake views, there, email me for cheap rates to stay in my penthouses (sleep 8) rent direct from me an owner email@example.com and I will cut you a great deal.
Amazing place, virgen holidays use it and they only use the best expensive places. Best place for kids 5 swiming pools, beach, widescreen tvs in all bedrooms, Cinema, games room, tennis, hotel service basically with out being in a hotel.
Found this treasure on expedia at a tremendous rate under $70 per night for 2/2. So you know I was very pleased. It did not meet the property descriptions because they are still in the developmental stage. For a family of 5 I can not complain a bit I would have never found a hotel that would have accomodated us at that price. Good Luck!
Big, cozy - great place to stay
Great! These large condos are away from the traffic and are great for families. Our unit even had a crib and high chair.
Great and Peaceful
The stay was wonderful and the accomodations were great. We were close enough to Disney and the other great sites that it felt as if we were on the Disney grounds. We went the first week of April and had such a great time that this will be our vacation spot each Spring Break. One small problem occurred when we had to move to another unit when the water heater did not work. It caused so many problems and we had felt so comfortable in the newer room.
We went to the bahama bay in early april. What more could i have asked for. It was absolutely brilliant, and certainly a lot nicer than some of the hotels on the 192. Alot of effort had been put into it i think it was worth it. It was a the best holiday i have ever!!!!!!! had and the best hotel, there really are no words to describe it.
Great place to stay
we stayed at the Bahama Bay Easter week, and could not have wished for a better place to stay, It was very luxurious and a good base to vist all the parks and so on. But I would reccomend that you hire a car as it is not on the main highway, We had a three bedroomed condo which had everything you need for a brilliant holiday and Iwould definately stay there again. When we went in April it had more or less only just opened so everything was brand new, and not all the ameneties were opened, when it is all completely open I think it will be even better and look forward to staying ther again.
Great place to stay. It was like home away from home.

... a glass door. The operator asks you for the thumbs up and then pushes the button which makes the floor open and you drop vertically down the chute! It sounds, and looks terrifying, but the initial drop is so quick that it's not too bad. We spent most of the day there until a massive downpour arrived and we were stranded under the umbrellas until it stopped and we ...
... on launch at the start for 5-10 mins, but then we were off. The first couple of drops ended up with a bit of a wetting but as we were approaching the final ramp up to get to the big fall, we got stuck again, only this time we had to get out and they took a couple of hours to fix the ride. We were only stuck for 5 mins but they gave us an express pass ...
So we have made a decision to go to Disney today and pick up our tickets at Magic Kingdom.
I love disney and this place is just so special - it does make the child in you come alive! John had not been to disney since he was 5 and I think a lot of things have changed since then. We wandered around a bit first and then chose to go on splash mountain as the queue was only about 25 minutes. It was as good as I remember, I love the whole build up before ...
... up the cruel ways to torture and punish someone was disgusting!
Returning back to our inexpensive accommodations for the evening, the kids went to the pool for a late night swim before hoping into bed and resting before our very last visit to the Magic Kingdom.
It was Mother's Day when we woke. Given my Pandora charm present and taken to iHOP for breakfast, we said our goodbyes to the Roper's and ...
... go to ride harry potter again so we agreed we go just before dinner. So off we went- we went to island of adventure first and Jurassic park was open, omg I was freaking out as I knew I had to go on it. It started out like a casual boat cruise through the dinosaur times and then alarms start going off and we begin going uphill again and see a huge t- Rex and then (what I thought was) a vertical drop to the ...
