    Is there is a huge difference in size btwn a studio villa and a 1 bdrm. We are deciding btwn Sar Springs & a studio at Beach Club. We like the idea of a 1 bdrm, but I have heard GREAT things about the pool at the Beach Club? Any input?

    Hi, Kelly!  The studio units are basically set up like your typical hotel room.  You'll find two beds, a small table or desk, a bathroom, but you will have the added bonus of a small kitchenette.  The kitchenette features a mini-fridge, microwave, and sink.

    The one bedroom unit is more like a "home".  When you enter, you'll enter into a small foyer, then you will have a full kitchen, with all of the appliances, a living room with a chair and a sofa that folds out into a bed.  There is a television with a DVD player, and a counter to eat breakfast at.  You will also have a dining room table.  The bedroom is a separate room, and you will find there a jacuzzi tub, separate shower, sinks, and toilet.  Additionally, in a closet in the hall, you will find a stackable washer and dryer.

    We've stayed at both locations, and as the mom, I would always choose the one bedroom over the studio, only because I love the extra storage, the privacy we have at bedtime (the kids can watch a show in the living room while they fall asleep and we can watch something else; or we can watch a show without disturbing their sleep), the washer and dryer (I love going home with all clean clothes!), and the kitchen, which allows me to make breakfast and not feel so rushed in the mornings.

    The pool area is definitely a bigger hit at Beach Club, but my girls love the High Rock pool at Saratoga Springs, too.  There is a water slide and children's play area, and once they're there, I never hear any complaining about not being at the Beach Club pool!

    Have a great vacation!
