    We recently visited Balmoral at Waters Edges, Florida for two weeks (Virgin Holidays Sept/Oct 2019) and had an amazing time, which went way beyond our expectations. There were 7 Adults and we stayed in a 5 bedroom Villa. We had no problem finding the resort and entry instructions were spot on. This is a very quiet/peaceful resort with the grounds very well maintained. Our early mornings were taken up sitting by the poolside watching the sunrise with a good old English cuppa and alligator watching in the outstanding view of the lake beyond. Everything within the villa was as described, very clean and tidy. However, the only major negative is that the kitchen isn't as kitted out as we would have hoped. For example, there was no drain rack, no sieve for rice, few oven trays/dishes and only one tea towel. Just not enough in the kitchen for the 10+ people the villa is designed to cater for. Also, the sun loungers could do with cushions as they become quite hard after a time. Just finishing touches that you forget you have in your own home, until you realise you don't have it in the villa. Staff at the Clubhouse are very polite and nothing was too much trouble for them. The main pool, jacuzzi and the Restaurant were excellent. Evenings were again spent relaxing by the pool, chilling out and watching the fantastic sunsets. We would truly recommend this resort, but please bare in mind that depending on the time of day you travel on the I4 to Universal Studios, it can take a good hour. Though, the peace, quiet and luxury style resort make up for the long drive.

    Great family holiday in a Beautiful Resort

    Just returned from a two week stay in a six bedroom villa at the Balmoral and cannot fault it. After a long flight with a 2hour delay it was great to go directly to our villa with codes supplied in advance and no need to checkin till the next morning. The villa was perfect and in a great spot at the top of a cul-de-sac only minutes walk from the pool area and clubhouse. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Minor issues were dealt with immediately eg I reported an ant problem by our pool and this was being dealt with by the time I walked back to the villa! The resort is a 25-30 minute drive to Disney but driving is easy and we didn't find this a problem. Halloween is big in the USA and it was great to see all the decorations in 30degree sunshine, A big plus ti this was not a single Christmas decoration in sight.

    Had a problem getting thru the gate the first night, but a call did get us in. Group of 4 adults adults and 2 small children. Got to our unit and could not at first find the release foy the patio area to get to front door Finally managed a hidden catch with the help of a phone light and got into unit. Parking was in rear st garage and door was on the side of the building, unusual setup. No garage door opener was furnished so always had to open garage to load vehicles, then someone had t close garage an go out side door, lock it and walk around to get in to leave unit secure. During that first night problems with beds started. Mattresses were supported by multiple slats instead of a box springs or a platform, and those slats can and did shift , occasionally falling out making noise ans sometimes even dropping you to the floor. Water slides are featured in their description and were wonderful when they were working but had maintenace problems anthecwhole pool area, even the hottub closed at dusk. And bring your own toilet paper after the first roll it is on you

    Absolutely what the doctor ordered for a relaxing getaway. I recommend this resort for a family, a friend or a business group gathering. Keep up the good work Feltrim/Balmoral Resorts and I look forward to visiting again.
