Great stay at the lake shore attached to the Ritz Carlton and JW Marriott. Location is great 15-20mind drive from most of the major attractions. And with plenty on site to do, gym, restaurants, bars pool's it isn't neccessery to leave the resort at all.

Besides room not being ready at 4pm checkin, we experienced a major problem in our room. The resort was full so we were moved to the last remaining room for the night. However upon returning the next day the problem was still not gone and we were permanently relocated to another 1 bed suite ( with very undesirable view vs.... More

We are members of the Marriott Vacation Club, with Marriott's Village d'lle-de-France being our home resort in Paris.

I have enjoyed this resort at least once a year since it opened- with the exception of the first time... And this last time. It is those visits that I was assigned an "ant-floor unit" - plagued with ants throughout. After the first miserable experience of colonies of ants invading our suitcases and kitchen, I persisted on every subsequent visit... More

Gorgeous resort - tropical setting with wonderful pool complex. The resort is on the small side, which actually was a plus. Pool area was never crowded - always plenty of chairs. The grounds are immaculate with incredibly beautiful landscaping. We stayed in the Palermo building - our unit was top notch. An amazing perk was the use of the J.W.... More

We typically stay at luxury hotels in a standard room. I found a great deal on Marriott's website for this Vacation Club property. We opted to try a villa. We were thoroughly impressed. The villa was large, well decorated and had all the conveniences of home; refrigerator, stove, washer and dryer. We utilized all of the many sitting areas too;... More

We have just completed a week at Marriott's Lakeshore Reserve. A really peaceful resort that never feels overcrowded. Access to both the JW Marriott and Ritz Carlton Hotels compensates for the fact that the resort is quite small and gives choice of pools and surreoundings. We were made to feel welcome in all of the establishments. Rooms are spacious and... More

Marriott's Lakeshore Reserve is "head and shoulders" above other resorts/hotels in Orlando. The tropical landscaping, the "lazy river", the proximity to Disney venues, shopping centers, the well appointed rooms the professional and friendly staff are like a magnet drawing my family back annually.

This resort is awesome! The staff is great and made our experience even better. Our kids did not want to go home. They had many activities for the kids there and the pool area was great. Also it was located in a great area close to all the parks. We would definitely stay there again.
