Gaylord Palms is a nice property but the add on charges are very disappointing where I would not return. Plus they change the room rates over a three night stay. There is a Hilton property with a mile for 1/2 the price and no add on charges.

Once again one of my favorites. When we get there we were upgraded to a balcony room. My kids love walk into the facilities and the pool and the water splash is their favorite. The hotel is beautiful and we always come on father's day weekend. Dinning buffet have lots of options for breakfast and dinner. The dessert station is... More

So me and my family have been going to Florida every summer for the past ten years, and every Sunday we go to gaylord palms for a nice dinner in Villa de Flora which is insanely good. However this year we arrive and there is a conference. It's hectic. We drive on up for valley parking as normal and there's... More

Since my first visit to the Gaylord in December 1915, I see hotels/resorts in a different light. I use to see them as a place to sleep and bath away from home. But, since my Gaylord stay I enjoy my monthly peace of mind and relaxation stay. I use to leave hotels as soon as I arrived to visit the... More

We stayed in an Atrium Room for 2 nights August 20th, 2016. 1 adult and 2 kids, 2 queen beds. Rooms are a good size for kids to move around. We didn't feel cramped. The waterpark called Cypress Springs had 4 slides (2 small slides for kids at least 36" tall, and another 2 slides for kids 40" and taller).... More

We stayed at the Gaylord Palms for 4 nights for a conference. The check-in with Brittany was fast and as gold preferred, we were given a nice Atrium view. The rooms are very nice...clean, large, comfy beds. and good storage. The shower and toilet are separate from vanity area. There was not a magnifier mirror, but the regular mirror was... More

There are tons of activities for every age group. I love the ambience of the whole resort. The convention rooms are easily accessible from the hotel and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. I would suggest this resort to anyone!

This past weekend we took our daughter here. What a BAD BAD idea. We will never step foot or spend another dollar at Gaylord Palms in Orlando.

My family and I had a great time here. Such a nice setting being fully enclosed. Lots of restaurants to choose from. My daughter loved it. Especially enjoyed the pool area. The on;y drawback is that waterslides are very small. Some of the other nearby resorts have adult sized water slides. Enjoyed the view of the atrium from our room.

The property itself is stunning (with prices to match). I especially liked that they have an adults-only pool. The rooms were normal Marriott rooms. However, when I ordered room service, a breakfast which should have been $18 total doubled in price after they added on all the fees and gratuities. Avoid room service here at all cost! Also avoid their... More
