“Have stayed many times”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We have often stayed at Sabal Palms, and always in the same two bedroom unit. The unit has been updated since we have been coming (it is always nice to see that the hotel cares about the upkeep, and keeping the property current). The unit we stay in is older, but always clean, and the size is great. We love having the full kitchen, dining area & living room- and of course having a washer & dryer in the unit is great. The screened in porch is very nice, when traveling with kids the screen is a great feature not only for keeping out bugs, but also safety. The porch overlooks the water, my boys love to spot the turtles swimming& other wildlife, yes once we did see a small alligator. We do not use the dining area as much because it is nice to eat out on the porch.
We have two bathrooms (one with a standard bath tub), but we all love the "car wash" shower as my kids call it :) This was added a few years ago as part of the unit upgrade. Sable Palms is very quiet and relaxing, with a little area for the kids to play out front of our unit (think small playground/area)- But it is a very quick walk to the main pool & resort area. My kids love the pool with waterfall & slide. The main area of the World Center Marriott has places to eat, grab coffee, etc... my kids love the glass elevator & always must ride to the top floor a few times. The resort is close to everything Universal, Disney, Sea World.... there is often traffic around Orlando, especially during the busy seasons, so leave yourself extra time to get where you would like to go.
We will keep coming back, as we find all of our stays consistently enjoyable.

We traded from our home resort (Marriott's Grande Vista) into the Sabal Palms for a different resort experience. We choose this resort so that we would have access to the nice pool at Marriott's World Center. Unfortuantely for us, they closed this pool a few days prior to our arrival for major renovations. Grr! We did walk to the World Center one day for a look-see and it is very close and an easy walk. We stopped by the kids area and played some Wii and ping pong. Afterwards, we pretty much stayed at the Sabal Palms. This resort is the most low-key Marriott we have ever stayed at. It took a little getting used to since it does not have many "bells & whistles" that we are used too. We were in Villa #4114 which had a nice view of the World Center, a pond, golf course and wildlife. We loved going out onto the screened porch to see who was visiting us .. birds, turtles, but never saw an alligator. The villa had a lot of nice square footage and the master bedroom was especially spacious! I had read about the master shower ahead of time, and it is a wonderful shower. My girls were especially happy with it and loved showering in there as well and didn't want to use the shower in their own bathroom! The 2nd bedroom has a single bed and a double bed, and a small area to walk out onto. As with all Marriott resorts, our place was completely stocked. We enjoyed the pool area and pool deck. It was never crowded and we never had a problem finding a seat. We assume that most people who come to Orlando spend time at the Disney parks, etc. .. but this was not the purpose of this trip for us. The pool does not have anything interactive, but we had plenty of pool dive toys to keep entertained. They have a whirlpool spa, exercise room and sauna near the pool area. We never participated in any of the resort activities. Some are at Sabal Palms, and some are at Imperial or Royal Palms. Sure you can walk there, but really a drive over, and we never felt like taking the time to do all of that. The staff was very nice at the Sabal Palms .. we were always greeted in a friendly manner. Overall, a really nice stay. Not sure we would return as we do like a few more perks and conveniences, but if we want a quiet, chilling vacation .. then we would consider the Sabal Palms again, especially for their master!

Had a fantastic time at this Marriott resort from July 21-28. Excellent service by friendly staff. The shuttle service to and from the World Centre Marriott was right there when you need it; never had to wait long for it to come. Our unit in building #4 was actually only a 5 minute walk to the WCM swimming pools once Daniel, our shuttle driver, showed us the short-cut path so we only used the shuttle a couple of times. Our 2BR unit was comfortable, spacious and a pleasure to return to after a long day the the parks. The resort was fully renovated about 5 years ago but the furnishings still look brand new. Since its a timeshare, there is no free maid service. However, the staff is happy to refresh your towels upon request. The unit has the basic full kitchen with dishwasher, laundry and drier. Close proximity to the Lake Buena Vista Outlet stores and Premium Outlets for shopping and Walmart is also close by.

Very close to the Magic Kingdom and Downtown Disney. Tip: if you want to avoid the mad rush and traffic after the fireworks are over, stay behind for the special light show on the castle at the end of the evening. There's also a late night (11 pm) electric parade which is less crowded than the one at 9 pm. The MK empties out rather quickly after 11 pm as everyone heads home.

Enjoyed having the food court over at the World Centre for snacks and a quick bite. Grab a starbucks while you're there. It was fun to have access to all the facilities at both resorts without any extra charge. Highly recommend Sabal Palms for families with small children. The resort lives up to the Marriott name.

Room Tip: Choose a room close to the Reception building or near the Sabal pool.

I just came back from the Orlando and my stay at the Marriot Sabal Palms. I have stayed at many Marriort properties and this one lived up to its name. Immaculate property and suite. Two bedrooms - the master just what you want for your private time. A shower with 3 heads to revive you, double mirror closets, armchair and ottoman and a balcony with table and chairs. The rest of the villa was just as nice, all amenties in the ultra modern kitchen, and another nice bedroom, that providesprivacy. As for the properyt. Immaculate too, with very friendly, helpful staff. But what was best was the pool.. It was the best, becasue it was quiet, relaxing and serene. If that is what you are looking for this is the property for it. You have access to all of the amenties at the World Marriot (multiple pools and slides). Send the kids there and enjoy the quiet at Sabel Palms.

Loved it here! The two bedroom unit was tremendous and very nice. The shower is amazing!! The staff were friendly and helpful. It's a great location because you can walk to the Marriott World Center Resort and the Sabal Palms pool is great because it is so quiet. We will return!

Just finished a week stay here, and what everyone has said in their reviews are true! On the outside, the place doesn't look that great. And I was incredibly skeptical. But, inside our 2 bedroom villa, it was amazing. Obviously there was a remodel on the inside of the rooms. We would like to keep this place a secret because we don't want to have a hard time booking it. But, that just wouldn't seem fair to them. We planned a night to eat at the World Marriott, and call the front desk to inquire how the shuttle worked. They explained it to us, and when we realized we needed to be at our reservation sooner than they would probably pick us up, we decided to drive our own car. Right as we were walking out of our villa, the front desk called to say the shuttle was there, and would take us immediately. Talk about service! We made our reservation exactly on time. The Sabal Palms pool was empty, but also not too exciting for our 3 children. We decided to take the short walk to the World Marriott pool with the slide and waterfalls. The kids LOVED it! We were told to look on the website since they are closing the World Marriott massive pool soon for a makeover into a water park. I haven't looked online yet, but plan to take a look. The employee said that the renovations were supposed to be completed by December. So you may want to check that out if you're planning to stay from now until then. Great place! Loved having ALL THAT SPACE!

Room Tip: There aren't elevators for the second level, so I would request a lower floor if you don't w...
