“Always a Favourite”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

We always visit Villa de Flora for its setting and the buffet usually on Italian night. Great value and exceptional service., although last time we went they seemed to have cut back on the number and variety of dishes on offer. Worth a visit just to sit in the atrium.

“Villa de Flora for Shrek Fest... The good, the bad and the ogre!”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

We were here at the Gaylord palms resort and had a Big Breakfast buffet at villa de flora...first the good---the place is beautiful...relaxing and visually stunning! Fantastic look and the staff are helpful friendly and available. The bad--- the food was not great...sorry---plenty of it but not good quality. The quiche...the eggs...the Danish...not so good---frozen bagels..etc
Also the bathroom is surprisingly not in the restaurant! It is outside and down the hall--- not kid friendly in that respect!
The Shrek Fest portion...it is great and very well done! Shrek ears are given to the kids... Swamp juice in green for the kids ... And the characters Shrek---puss in boots and Fiona! Great job! They take pics with kids...fun fun! I recommend the experience! Just know that u r paying for the experience and not the food.

“Best at Gaylord's”
Reviewed November 21, 2011

I think the dinner buffet is the best value at the resort. It is $32/person for the buffet, however, for what you get, you get more bang for your buck.

“Had better food at lesser quality Hotels, but the service was excellent”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

We ate dinner here . My Husband , daughter and I . Food was ok, not bad , not good , just ok. Not worth the price but your options are limited because of the location of the hotel.
The food all looked over processed and of poor quality . The pasta salad was good and they have what appears to be a decent Pasta Bar ( made to order ) , the bread was stale and salads, all two of them were wilted ( not much of a selection ) There was some tomatoes in herb dressing that was tasty , but that did it for any kind of fresh vegetables .
My Husband had the beef and also the lamb and found them both to be on the fatty side . The roast pototoes tasted old and the chicken jus looked to dried out for me to attempt a bite .
Did enjoy the desserts though . All of them were exceptional .
