Anyone been to Beach Club recently ????

Just wondering about the Villas. I know I have read some posts that say they are a bit run down. We are thinking of trying to get a ressie this summer. Did they change the mattresses yet? Are they now the same as BLT?

Any info welcome.

We stayed in the Villas about 3 weeks ago-2 different studios and a 1 BR (boy, did I fracture that ressie!). Everything was in excellent shape, and we enjoyed the stay even more than usual-and we usually really like the Villas.

We were there last month and our villa was pristine! I had read the same reviews and was a bit apprehensive, but there were no issues and everything was spotless.

Here are the photos of our studio:

Thanks for the comments and photos! I am going to try at the end of the week to book at BC. We usually stay at home resort, I hope we have good luck.

Anyone else been to BC villas lately???? Is there a good section/room/floor to ask for? We are going to try for a 2 bedroom-

Thanks

We were just there the first week of Oct. in a 1BR. Everything was great! We were on the 3rd floor so I guess we had new mattresses! Very comfy. We absolutely loved being so close to Epcot for F & W Festival.

We were there in early/mid September. They hadn't changed our mattress on the 5th floor, but we did see mattresses being swapped out on other floors.

I would be shocked if they are not done with the mattress replacements.

Our room was in good shape. However, on the night we checked in, it had cobwebs and was gross. We complained to the front desk, showing them pictures. When we returned later in the day, the room was great.

They also did some resort wide plumbing work on our first night. After that, everything was great.

Bottom line, the resort should be in great shape given the work that was going on in September.

The only complaint I had about our Sept trip was the carpet. Both in the villa and the hallway it desperately needed a thorough deep cleaning or to be changes completely.

All rooms at all resorts wear differently depending upon how much guest abuse they suffer. No matter where you stay, what you've read or how recently you read about refurbishments, it doesn't say much about what you will find when you open the door to your assigned villa.

If there are problems, call housekeeping or maintenance. If they do not respond promptly, go to the front desk and speak to a manager.

Here right now in a 1BR. Our villa is great, very clean (even the carpet looks really clean!). There is a nick or two in the bedside table, other than that, everything looks really fresh.

The only thing I've seen that looks the least bit rundown is the carpet in the hallway, but those carpets obviously see a ton of traffic, all things considered they don't really look that bad.

Our bed was comfy - not sure if it is a new mattress or not.

Our location is great - 136, first floor, faces pool (we haven't really heard a peep however) and close enough to the lobby to not be inconvenient.

We have been reading negative reviews about BCV for years but every time we get there things look great. That said I do think the villas could use an update in the overall decor. I love BCV, don't get me wrong, but the decor style does make it appear old.

Exactly. We had a 1BR there last month, and there were a few rough spots---Housekeeping did not manage to clean the fridge, one of the lamps had a short in it, and the dishwasher died mid-stay. It took them a couple days to replace the dishwasher, but we were there for Food & Wine, so there was a minimum of cooking in the room...

Overall, the room was perfectly adequate, though my better half was a little less happy with it.

Well, we got lucky this morning. Just booked a 2 BR lock off for a week in June. Hopefully everything is good, and if not I will deal with it then. I think my kids(13,14 and 16) will happy at BC. I would like to try Jelly Rolls one night-that sounds like fun.

Anyone have recommendations on a room? I have read that rooms have views of fireworks. Is there a certain room range I should ask for?

Thanks for all of the feedback- everyone's always helpful here!

Very nice room! I have a trip planned for July in a standard view studio and was trying to figure out where I should room request! Do you remember what room number you were in? Thanks
