I've stayed at All Star Sports both this May and last May, so I have a few pictures of the resort. Here's just a few I had on photobucket.


Building 8 from the parking lot:




Inside the room in Building 8:


(Fun fact: The beds are doubles, but you have the capability to push them together if needed.)



Walkway from Building 8 to the Food Court:



The opposite direction:




The Main Pool:






Blurry shot of the Food Court:




Lawn area around Building 5:



Pathway to the Food Court from Building 5:



View from the Parking Lot:




Opposite view:




Room in Building 5 (sorry about my DH being in it):




I've walked around the resort several times and have seen all the building and used two different laundry rooms and both pools, so if anyone has a question I can help you out as best I can. Also, if you wanna see more photos, I'm sure I've got more lying around.

Thank you so much for the pics! We're checking into this resort on Monday and absolutely cannot wait. In your opinion, what is the best building to be in? We don't want to be too far from the bus stop/food court, but don't want to be kept awake from the loud pool noises. Any suggestions? Thank you!

No problem! If I'd checked this thread earlier, I would've posted last year's pics of the resort much sooner.

Welcome! Once the holiday weekend festivities die down I'll go through my photos and try and post any more that I have.

Congrats on checking into the resort so soon!
Hmmm, best building.....From my experience with the two building I've stayed in, Building 8 was closer to all the things you mentioned above, but I think Building 5's rooms were in little bit better condition.

In Building 8, you're next to the quiet pool and the laundry rooms, and you're the football field length away from the food court and bus stops.


As far as preferred go, I wouldn't get the surf's up sections. It's always loud at the main pool and guests are coming and going constantly.


The football building (can't remember which number it is) seemed pretty nice; there were rooms on the backside that faced the playground that seemed kind of tucked away and serene.


Whatever you do, though, try not to score the Hoops Hotel (Buildings 2 and 3). I walked around them a few weeks ago, and they were so far away from everything and seemed sort of deserted. I didn't even feel like they were part of ASSp, but if you're looking for something really, really quiet, then it's perfect.

Have a great vacation!

Thanks! I'll use those as my requests when we check in, but if we don't get them I know we'll still have an incredible vacation!
