5-Stars | 2nd December | Via Trip Advisor
We’ve been to Florida many times before, however Balmoral is by far the most luxurious place we’ve stayed. Yes, there is work going on however we didn’t have a clue until we looked, wasn’t disturbed at all by it. Please don’t read too much into the reviews that complain about this, I’m sure some are very genuine, but most are just splitting hairs. Our villa (169) had a great view over the lake and was near the club house, walking distance. The complex is brand new, quiet and absolutely gorgeous! Each night we were here the gates were closed (both front and back) and we had to put a code in to enter the complex (great for security and peace of mind). Running around the complex was also great at night, given how quiet and safe it is with being a gated community…….Little tip, drive out the back gate to get to Publix, two minutes away and better than Walmart. Lastly the house is finished to a very high standard, and the cleaning team came in twice during our two week stay. Oh, and if you’re going in November, highly recommend putting the heated pool on at the villa! Now for the staff at Balmoral….what a great bunch on people, everybody is really friendly and couldn’t do enough for you. We had Thanksgiving dinner at the Club House (our first thanksgiving ever) and it was amazing!! The pool was quiet so each morning at 8.30 (when it opens) I went for a training swim in the large heated pool….bliss. Thank you again Margo and the team, you guys are awesome and really made our holiday, keep up the great work! The complex is around 25 minutes drive from Disney and 30/35 minutes from Universal. Loads of places to stop off for fuel and snacks along the way if you need to ( you’re spoilt for choice)! If I have one bit of feedback, it would be that we requested information on buying one of the villas but didn’t get it. Not a big issue at all, didn’t spoil the holiday and I guess says everything it needs to in that we’re interested in investing. Please get in touch with us Margo. Thanks again Balmoral team, we’ll be back soon!
