First time- GREAT place
We are a family of four (daughters are 16 and 14) and we used RCI to book a 2 bedroom unit in building 504, which the last building. We went 3/7-3/14 2020.
We went with this because of the general reviews, and glad we did. I had read that the pressure to attend the timeshare pitch was pretty severe, but we only received one phone call and no other attempts.
The room itself was very clean and we had plenty of room. Our view was of the lakes (they are a combo wetland-lake) and very scenic . Even being the end of the resort we were close to 3-4 pools and the clubhouse has a great beach area. The Big Kahuna Bar was by my building and the staff there was very friendly and cordial. For example- one of the workers gave me his lighter because I didn’t have one!
I rented a fishing pole and was able to do some casting on premises with no need for a license.
I can’t really say anything bad about it! We like adventuring…we went to Universal Studios (they do offer a shuttle, but be warned that it only leaves at 9 am and returns at 9 pm) we drove to Clearwater Beach on the gulf side (about 2 hours) one day and then Melbourne beach on the Atlantic side (about 1 1/2 hours) for 2 days.
So to summarize- great location, all room seem to have great views; friendly staff; great pools and facilities. Little to no timeshare pressure.
See if you are a Summer Bay Resorts timeshare owner
