There is an energy here that I cannot describe but I have had the pleasure of enjoying more than once or twice. One needn't be a golf enthusiast to enjoy but that may add to the intrigue. This hotel is a trove of photos, memorabilia, etc. from the career of Arnold Palmer. It also is a most comfortable, non-conforming structure which offers comfort, great food and excellent service. And the energy. I have posted various reviews, but anyone familiar with my posts will realize that this is the only place to which I refer to the energy. It is good. It is safe. It is comfortable. The service staff will please above and beyond. The aforementioned food is of consistent high quality. Enjoying a beverage - perhaps at the hands of Sheryle - will begin a lifelong appreciation and friendship of good people.

I noticed room rates fell beginning Sunday evening, so I trooped over and reserved a room. The place was teeming with activity, preparation for the MasterCard Bay Hill Invitational, and shuttling groups like Jacobsen Mowing, through a chock full starter's sheet. The course is majestic. I was unable to believe that Rory McIlroy would shoot 7 under, within a month of my hardfought one over par, (after six holes). Though the coverage of the Bay Hill Invitational advertises that is as if Arnie never left, it is simply not quite the same. Mr. Palmer's daughters and grandson now oversee the tournament. The practice facilities are unparalleled, with an especially exhaustive Sand Trap and chipping area. I began my round at 5:00 pm in the heart of winter, hoping to complete 9, but we only made it through six. What I most enjoyed was the pristine wild life, ( a crocodile peered up at me, from the lagoon alongside the sixth tee), which seems undisturbed by golfers. The homes along the fairways are impeccable, open and well lit as nightfall approaches. This is a serious place, with a fairly constrained dinner menu, but within a short drive of world class cuisine. Please go here, it is a most unsurpassed experience!

Stayed here for a short stay . Feels very much a country club type feel where everyone knows your name . I'm sure if we stayed here for longer than 2 days all the stay would have known us it's that friendly . Staff were amazing , friendly and efficient. Room was decent size and there are plenty facilities here that we didn't use . Breakfast was extra . Evening meal was wonderful . Clubhouse and golf course is here aswell . All in all a great place to stay in a fairly central location

2 night stay with golf. Practice facilities and golf course outstanding. Course well managed and beautifully maintained. Pace of play excellent. Caddy Mike was easy, fun and very helpful. pro shop, cart girl and staff were all solid and attentive! Room was nice but very dated .... ancient TV, old bones with very few updates. No coffee, ironing board in room. Things seemed stuck in time and influenced the experience. The lodge physically needs a remodel.... it didn’t match the quality of the staff and golf course.

We stayed in one of the guest house which look like a cottage, are well equipped and with hotel room service. Fitness, pool, sauna, massage all is on high standards and its worth the price. Bar and restaurant we did not visit as there are so many options to go that we never stayed home. Great hotel and service!
