What a fabulous hotel !!!

I totally agree with everything the previous review has stated (except to mention that the drinks in the fridge in the cabana tents are not free - but you do get 2 free Virgin Daquaris and a mouthwatering fruit platter !). Current hire charge is $110....ask for a cabana on the right side of the pool though, as those on the left are a little shadier.

It is a VERY smart hotel, and we were a little concerned about our dress code at first - but need not have worried, as jeans & tees seemed to be the norm, at least among the majority of the golfing residents ...though there was obviously some VERY wealthy clientelle staying there.

The breakfast is one of the highest quality self service breakfasts you will find in Orlando !! Besides a huge array of mouthwatering croissants, muffins, breads and other breakfast foods etc., it is specifically worth mentioning the free range organic eggs (freshly made omlettes/scrambled etc),the bowls of fresh blueberries, strawberries & raspberries, and the top quality cereals they provide. There's certainly no scrimping on any aspect of this wonderful make sure you get breakfast included in your deal !

The kids got a free kids pack when we checked into the hotel - comprising of a refillable mug (so free Coke all day, some really neat jelly bug sweets that you could make light up with some special tweezers !, some tokens for the games arcade, kalidescope and a voucher for a free icecream ! We were not expecting these, and it certainly made our stay even better value for money.

The kids club was excellent (Camp Omni) -though at $10 per kid, per hour, it can get a little pricey (but they will feed them, inclusive of this price at meal times, so that makes a couple of hours there a bit of a bargain) - but certainly very handy if you wish to grab a few hours to yourselves one evening. There is also free pool-side entertainment going on during the day to occupy your kids - besides all the marvellous facilities in and around the pool itself (great waterslide, lazy river, water basket ball, volley ball etc).
There are also some good 'payable extra' actities for the kids - whilst were were there a qualified diver came to give scuba and snuba 'try' sessions ($20 we thought was very reasonable for 45 min session).

We did have a few snack meals from the Croc bar, and they were generous portions, reasonably priced and good quality.

We are not golfers ,so cannot comment on this aspect, only to say we saw groundsmen out and about tending the greens well before daylight (our room overlooked the greens)- it certainly looks to be very well maintained indeed.

TIP : Join the Omni 'Select Guest' programme - its free to join on their website, and it does secure you a few little extra perks; free room service tea or coffee in the morning, free coffee machine facilities in room, free newspaper delivered to room, better room location, choice of pillow type etc.

The only critisism I've read about this hotel is that the walls are thin.....and surprisingly they are ! We didn't hear guests in the rooms next door, but you can hear every word spoken on the corridors even though the rooms are quite deep !

Don't let this put you off - this is a superb hotel and Disney should be worried by the emergence of these top quality hotels nearby........better than any Disney resort we have stayed at, and only 10 mins drive away.....and much cheaper than any deluxe Disney hotel. We got some good rates off accommodation only sites (try Roomsnet,, and
We will be back !

This was our first trip to Florida, and one of the conditions I imposed was I wanted a "proper" hotel that provided a little luxury away from what seemed like the mad rush of the Parks and I drive. We certainly got that and more at the Omni.

On arrival, the view up the drive is of a stunning building that dominates the skyline, and arrival in the hotel itself didnt dissapoint.

The lobby is spacious and well lit and tastefully furnished, with ample seating, plenty check in desks, a concierge, and a bar that is open though the usual hours. It has a panoramic view of the pool area, and the golf courses beyond.

Within the communal area of the hotel is a cafe selling refreshments and starbucks coffee, a golf shop, a general shop selling clothing/toys/ sunglasses etc, a car hire point, an office hire facility and an atm. There is also a deli, serving a range of sweets, snacks, refreshments. Staff in all are welcoming and friendly, ATM aside.

Our room was on the 6th floor, of 16, and was well equipped and had all you needed. Lovely bathroom, sizebale double bed, comfy put up bed, aircon, well stocked mini bar. The TV had hundreds of channels and was kitted for internet access which we didnt use. Air con control was just right too. Room service was excellent, with the daily visit always done when we were out, and an evening turn down when chocs were put on the pillow, ice bucket filled, and a relaxing music channel put on the TV. Our floor, and I expect all floors, had a free ice machine which was very handy. My only disapointment with our room was we overlooked the I4 /carpark side rather than the pool, but we could see the theme parks firworks so that more than made up. Complementary newspaper delivery each morning is nice, and room service, when used , was excellent and prompt.

The pool area is stunning. The casual pool is sizeable and intersting, with ample loungers. Depths suit all, and the water slide is o a very high quality and keeps he kids amused. The lazy river is great, as good as any and less crowded than those in the parks. There are a couple of hot tubs, and a formal pool surrounded by tent like stuctures that you can hire for 100 dollars per day. They contain a tv and you get complementary drinks in a fridge too. We didnt do this, but had a peep and wish we had !

Refreshments at the pool are provided by Crocs bar - full range of drinks and snacks, high standard, great staff, two TV's

Insise the hotel you have a an Italian restaraunt called Trevis, a Thai called Zen, Davids bar which is a sports themed bar/restaraunt and also the Golf club which you can walk too or get a lift on the Golf Cart. Food in all is stunning, if a little pricier than average.

Our "complimentary" breakfast was served in Trevis, and was the full package with hot and cold choices, cereals, ample fruit juice, coffee etc.

Within the Championsgate complex, 15 mins walk from the Hotel, is a chemist, supermarket, booze store, 7/11, pizza house, chinese retaraunt, McDonals, Barbers, petrol station etc. Very handy indeed and normal competative prices.

I have to mention the golf. Two stunning 18 hole courses, designed by greg norman, cost $120 per round inc buggy, club hire etc. The par three course costs $12 and is very high standard. David Leadbetter has his world HQ on site, with world clas teaching and practice facilities. If your a golfer your in heaven.

Staff are excellent, cant do enough to assist. A real 5 star experience, use with confidence
