My husband and I stayed at Bay Hill for 10 days. The service, ambiance and food were all excellent. We welcomed the civility and simple elegance provided by the Lodge and staff. As a golfer, my husband found the course to be outstanding. I greatly enjoyed the pool and massage services. Bay Hill is not a large resort and devoid...

Older place but well worth the visit. Great facilities, restaurant, and of course the Golf Course. If you a Golf fan and especially if your are an Arnold Palmer fan, then Bay Hill is a bucket list item.

Staying at Bay Hill was the culmination of our tour of south Florida. The aim was stay and play, whilst inviting my best man and two other friends - who are now living in Orlando - to play golf. Sadly Bay Hill only permit residents of their hotel/lodges to play, so paying for accommodation made the golf VERY expensive. They...

We stayed at the Bowen house for two nights. Located on the 18th fairway, a two bedroom masterpiece. Mr. Palmer had passed away just days earlier and the feeling of loss was palpable.
