“KEEP COMING BACK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

Huge but not impersonal. Five star from the moment you arrive. Cannot fault the place as it is everything that you would expect and so good we have now been back four or five times. What can I say that is a negative? It is a bit confusing which exit is which when you pick one of the driveways that leave the place. Almost not worth mentioning.

When I said to the children on one occasion: "Okay your call. We will go anywhere you want in the world. So where?". Both of them replied "Grande Lakes please". I replied "I am not sure I want any more Disney" I was told they wanted to go to the hotel and were not fussed about Disney. Even then, the Grande Lakes doesn't become a mass of screaming children.

Room Tip: Overlook the swimming pools and golf courses

Really enjoyed staying at this hotel while in Orlando for a friends Wedding. Very luxurious, the hotels was spotless and the room was very clean and had very nice amenities. Large bathroom with good shower and lovely large bed with very comfortable pillows. Hotel has a nice heated pool area although I do feel too many sunbeds were out for this time of year. Really enjoyed using the jacuzzi/spa within the pool late in the evening.

Very friendly and helpful staff, the only let down was it was rather isolated but probably not unusual for this area.

I stayed at this hotel for a week at a conference recently. I have to say I was very impressed. Check in was very smooth, the hotel and bar staff were fantastic and the room was quite comfortable. I'm pretty picky with beds but I had no trouble sleeping. I stayed in 26014, the only reason I am not rating the hotel a 5 is the conference food we were fed was not very good and the water pressure in my room was horrible in the shower. I did not complain about it as I didn't have the time. Apart from those two things everything was delightful.

I was here for a conference. This is a large, full-service resort with all the trimmings you would expect. Not the kind of place I could conceive of staying at as a civilian - it's a bit over the top and, I would have to say, somewhat on the garish side. But fine for a business trip.

Room was on top floor penthouse with beautiful view. Clean, neat and very comforable. Helpful staff and well management. Grand lobby. Easy connection to Ritz-Carlton and both facilities has entertainment, stores , SPA and common places to share which is a great deal.

Room Tip: I always prefer top floor to be peaceful night. Lake facing has beautiful lake view.

One of the best hotels to stay in Orlando ! Loved the lazy river and many swimming pools. The game room, activities for the kids...... The golf course is great and of course Sushi and Organic restaurant really top it off. The rooms are nice and very clean. It reminds me of being on a tropical island every time we are there. Looking forward to staying again next April. Other hotels should take note on how to do it right !

My wife I stayed at this hotel for one night on our way through Orlando. The hotel amnenities were great and the rooms were absolutely comfortable. I do have to say for such a nice hotel the parking gate function could be better, and the interior of the hotel does show some wear, but overall a great hotel. We enjoyed the upscale luxury, the heated lazy river, and the hot tubs. Great find, would definately stay here again!!
