The Gaylord Palms is beautiful and as previously mentioned exactly like a casino without gambling.
With an atrium room one can open their balcony onto the lush indoor gardens and take in the fresh air.It is also a great place to stroll about in the evening after dinner.
The Chicken Sandwich at Sunset Sams with yucca fries was nice paired with a glass of merlot.
Outdoors the waterpark and pools would thrill any family.
Gym is adequate and well equipped.
Only small complaint is that while I enjoy a glass or two of wine in the evening the only choice here is the fairly expensive bar options. It would be nice to be able to purchase a split or bottle in an on site store.
