The last time we were in this hotel was approx. 2 years ago so take the review with the grain of salt, especially since the latest reviews of this hotel on other web sites are far from stellar. The hotel is one of Hyatt resorts and is relatively close to Orlando attractions. It still takes at least 20 minutes to get to Disney World so this would not be the first option have I not been a Hyatt GP diamond. Speaking about diamond recognition, it is average at best. The front desk didn't seem to care about the status and the room we were given was average. Asking for a better room didn't help as supposedly the hotel was full (not according to the Hyatt's web site which was still offering all room types for sale). The rooms were OK and from what I understand they were renovated since our last visit. The balcony was a nice thing to have but it is tiny and you can barely put a chair sideways so don't plan on spending any significant time out enjoying weather (which was great every time we were there in the Oct-Dec time frame). To justify its resort designation, the hotel has a relatively elaborate pool complex with waterfalls and play areas. There are some "hidden" hot tubs, too. The grounds are pretty well maintained. There is also a small lake right behind the pools. My biggest complaint regarding the recreation/sports facilities is the location of the tennis courts. It's a pretty long hike around the lake and the courts themselves are nothing special. You can also borrow bikes for a leisurely ride on the hotel grounds. The food in the RC was decent - typicall US HR flare. The Hemingway's is decent but definitely does not live up its fine dining aspirations. The path to the restaurant is poorly lit (at least it was 2 years ago). We had reservations under our name and were there on a slow night. It still took them 5 minutes to seat us (almost as much to even acknowledge us). It also took some time to get the food and once it came it was just average. Definitely wouldn't recommend eating there.
