Guest Recommendations
"We had stayed at this resort several times before. This particular unit needed some work and attention. I turned in a list of deficiencies to the front desk. most of the items were minor but did need immediate attention. We will stay at the resort again, but will look the room over prior to moving in."
Phillip from Chipley, FL US rated Fantasy World Resort 8 out of 10 on October 18, 2006
"Well equiped units on a quiet location. Everything clean and functionally. Use Restaurante Olive Garden and Marker 11 at US192 as location reference.Frontdesk team very friendly and helpfull!"
Bernard from Eusebio/ceara, US rated Fantasy World Resort 9 out of 10 on August 11, 2006
"My daughter fell and scraped her knee and the front desk couldn't provide a bandaid! The convenience store on-site needed a $10 min to use my card so I had to go to Walmart. How do you have a pool and no First Aid available? Otherwise, it was nice and quiet, plus the peace of mind of having a separate room for the kids was nice for the price. We will come again. Additionally, the morning bus to Magic Kingdom was on time and the driver was helpful with our stroller. However, the evening bus was 20 minutes late and wouldn't get out of seat (even for some elderly folks that we picked up at Epcot!) Would like to have free wireless Internet."

We took our 3 1/2 and 6 1/2 year-old youngsters with us, and they (and naturally we) loved the pool - the games, and karaoke and all.. Perfect vacation."

"The Fantasy World Club Villas were very nice and affordable. Great location near everything. It was great to stay in a 2 bedroom villa instead of a standard hotel room. The pool, jaccuzi, basketball court were great for the kids.....Great value...Will stay again!!!!"
