An earlier start than usual and we were off to Daytona! O..M...G! The place is amazing and the size..Wow!

De super excité à super fatigué dans 24 heures! Les enfants n'ont dormi que quelques heures avant le départ de l'hotel à matin. Mais ça les a attrapé mi vol et encore une fois à la fin de notre pleine journée. Fantasmic à Hollywood Studios était une superbe façon de visiter un parc notre première journée sans trop nous fatigué plus qu'on était.

Historical Traveler Reviews Reunion Resort Kissimmee
I've been going to Orlando regularly for 30 years. This was the best lodging we've ever had there. The 3-bedroom townhouse/villa in seven eagles was comfortably spacious and thoroughly clean. Had nice touches -- for example, two hot tubs, luxurious queen size beds with down-filled comforters. The landscaping of the grounds was peaceful, beautiful, relaxing -- beautiful golf courses and nature trails. All the pools were clean and relaxing. But the best part for us was the water park with the lazy river in the middle of the tropical garden. It was heavenly to drift down the lazy river, getting splashed by the mini-waterfalls and smelling the flowers from the garden. We spent the days there unwinding, eating simple but delicious food from the pool-side grill and drinking tropical drinks. The service was fast and friendly. After relaxing like this during the heat of the day, we found we could enjoy the usual Orlando activities (the Disney Parks, Universal, etc) in the evenings much more.
Great Resort - Fantastic place to stay and play
This resort has it all !!! 10 minutes from the hustle of Disney, Reunion offers a quite hidaway from the busy theme park adventure. When it's time to relax Reunion is where you want to be. The houses are beautiful and you feel like a "millionaire" staying in one of the many beautiful golf corse houses. The views are great. The resort has fantastic golf and there is even a water park on the property. They are currently building Tennis Courts and soon there will be a riding stable and a spa.... You couldn't ask for more when visiting Orlando. This adds a whole new dimension to the Orlando vacation.
I learned about this resort from a Trip Advisor comment when looking for places to stay with my family (wife, in-law, 2 children age 4 and 3) in the Orlando area. The comment noted the family opted to rent a private home, which is the course we took as well.
We have been visiting the Orlando area from the UK since 1992, sometimes up to 3 times a year, and have rented some truly fabulous private homes. We've also stayed at many of the area's top hotels (Ritz-Carlton at Grande Lakes; Disney's Grand Floridian, BoardWalk, Animal Kingdom Lodge, Beach Club, Contemporary; and all 3 onsite hotels at Universal Orlando - Portofino Bay, Hard Rock Hotel and Royal Pacific Resort). Since our stay at Reunion last month, I can't imagine wanting to stay anywhere else in the Orlando area for a long time to come.
Heaven in Florida
Forget about Disney. Take the kids to the park and return back to Heaven. My family spent a week at Reunion for the FAMU classic. We did not want to leave. It is truly your home away from home. Shopping center is 1 mile away. Reunion water park rivals the other parks in the area. Dubai has the only 7 star property in the world, Reunion is 6 3/4. See you there soon.
We spent 5 nights at Reunion this Winter break. During Orlando's busiest season, it was such a pleasure to stay outside Disney. We were only ten minutes (max) from the parks and never had to deal with traffic. Reunion Resort is the perfect place to stay if you're hoping to have a bit of a grown up vacation as well. The Water park with lazy river running through it thrilled our children. It was well staffed and not at all crowded. The Seven Eagles pool was quiet and relaxing yet, very kid friendly. Big, thick towels were provided at each of the pools we visited. We ate one delicious meal at the Resort but were told by other guests that they never felt the need to eat outside the resort. The staff was attentive, the place was immaculate and the golf was outstanding. The beds were some of the most comfortable we've ever encountered and the 3br. villa we stayed in had a great floorplan. Aside from a bit of early-morning construction noise (only 1 day), Reunion was everything it promised to be. We loved it so much we "asked" to meet with a real estate agent.
Will be great when finished, but still building...
We stayed for 10 days in December and rented one of the houses on the resort. I agree with the other reviews that when completed it will be lovely - but right now it is a bit of a building site - something that we did not realise when we booked.
However, this being said, service was great and the quality of the home where we stayed was excellent - just make sure that you ask for a home in the more finished section of the resort. Otherwise you might be next to a building plot (as was the first house they took us to).
Water park is great - and the pirate ship for the kids is just brilliant. The quality of the food in the clubhouse was also suprisingly good.
Reunion is unlike any other resort in Central Florida!
Our family stayed at Reunion instead of a crampt hotel room at Disney. We were able to rent a million dollar home for the week and it helped to make our trip to Orlando a true vacation. We had more fun at Reunion than we had at Disney. They have two spectacular golf courses (the best manicured we'd ever seen), a waterpark and daily kids activities. We felt like we were staying at a Four Seasons property. Everything was first class including the service. These guys spared no expense.
This resort is a new resort in the baby stages of completion. Once complete, this will be the resort to visit. Our family enjoyed our stay in the three bedroom condo over the Christmas holiday. Resort was quiet, clean and the staff was excellent. No problems what-so-ever. Pool area was clean and staff was always on duty cleaning. Golfing outside your door will appeal to those who like the convenience of an execellent golf course at your fingertips. Since this is a resort under construction, the location near resturants and shopping is not there so you need a vehicle. There is a grocery store and fast food outlet nearby but transportation is still required. We would not hesitate to re-visit next Christmas holiday.
Right now, a Beautiful place for Adults
We visited the Reunion Resort in October 2004. This will be a beautiful resort once construction is completed with many amenities. Right now, the villas we stayed in were completed & the pool. Lots of construction in the area, but did not affect our stay. (our boys love watching back hoes). We had a 3bd villa--well-appointed, and beautifully decorated. However, with children...the layout was not conducive. This would have been ideal for 3 couples, each having their own room and bath. Being 2-story, and the kitchen upstairs, we found ourselves running up and down a lot. Everyone was very nice, NO pushy sales at all. A very quiet retreat from I-4 and I-drive, with a backway into disney that eliminated our being on I-4 at all.
