dual listed resort, 0450 Villas side and V450 Fountains side Jun 05, 2011
Okay an UPDATE on this review

RCI resort V450 is the Sheraton Vistana Fountains resort - 0450 is the Sheraton Vistana Villas Resort - the one I booked was 0450 and the one my account history claims I stayed in, but in dual listing resorts (like this one) they can burn you at check in - putting the non-owners in the bad side of the resort (V450), most of us - like myself wouldn't know they'd been switched til as late as returning home.

Only sleasy resorts play bait and switch games, have to be on the look out for them. I wasn't aware of a difference, was not aware it was a dual listing resort. I got stuck in the slum district, rape city, it felt that safe and it was that nasty. The unit was not one bit like any of the photos posted on RCI. The view from the unit was rows of dumpsters and chain linked locked storage for upgrade work that was NOT being done on the units that had the view of dumpsters. The ones being upgraded had pristine views. Lots of construction workers hanging around, yet no sign of security and not even a room safe. The V450 Fountains (palms & courts) portion of this resort is a dump. Outside wooden stairs with no protective overhang and railings were a joke and accident waiting to happen. The inside - carpet was stained and dirty, couch was uncomfortable and dirty. Floor plan not the open spacious ones pictured. there was walking room only between dining room set and kitchen bar stools on the way to master bedroom, so had to be carry carrying luggage in, not to knock over and bump chairs and stools. I've never stayed in a 2 bedroom that was so CRAMPED and had such a poorly laid out floor plan. Only place one could see the TV from (average size box TV, not HD) was from the couch, not from the kitchen, not from the dining area. The living room TV was so dark it was like watching a slasher movie for most any DVD or TV shows that I chose to watch. The TV in the master the 2nd old box TV, always had an audible static buzz, very irritating. This unit entry was a 2nd floor via the uncovered, wooden stairwell. Inside the 2nd bedroom was another level. Two TWIN beds and no TV at all! Most places with outside stairwells or multi level units post a warning on the RCI site - no elevator, outside stairs, 2nd bedroom upstairs, many stairs, Nope, no warnings posted. The pool was great, but I only went to the Super Pool which is really on the "good" side of the Vistana. I would have insisted on a move to another, better unit, but I had guests and they only had three days and were eager to get started with disney. So we toughed it out, and after they left I didn't want to bother with moving myself. They went totally cheap. At any Motel 6 I can get coffee, shampoo, etc. Nope, not this one, NO coffee, NO coffee filters, NO shampoo, NO conditioner, NO skin moisturizer,and despite being on the vulnerable SLUM side, with lots of workers hanging about, there was no safe! These resorts need to at least meet the standards of Motel 6. I do not recommend this resort at all. Oh and my next door neighbors were pigs, they kept putting their food trays & trash outside the door, like they expected room service to pick them up. Plastic trays from fast food no less. I know they had garbage bags and garbage container in unit, but chose to toss stuff on the walkway! Guess they wanted to feed the rats! BTW I understand the 0450 resort is beautiful - too bad they didn't give me what I booked. I might have been able to provide a glowing instead of glowering review. Their deception, their problem. This is all on resort, not RCI, to my knowledge. Yet my first review of this resort was rejected by RCI, and it was toned down alot from the one you are able to read here. Maybe my even more toned down 2nd review will be allowed by RCI - we shall see. Although now - there is information about multi-level units and lack of elevators information is posted.
