Nice older resort. We visited 12/23-12/29/12. The resort was quiet and the grounds were well maintained. It is connected to the Marriott World Center. The World Center had a very nice Christmas display. They even had Santa with complimentary pics. Nice touch.
The Royal Palms staff is top notch, very friendly and helpful.
The units were nicely equipped. The bed was super comfy!! Loved the colors. The second bedroom was tiny. It had a queen size bed and a small lounge chair that converted to a single bed. The bathrooms were also small. Overall, the look and feel of the furnishing was nice. The covered patio was spacious.
Now, there were a few things I think need improvement. The quality of the refurb left a lot to be desired. The cabinets had been refaced and the film was peeling. The water pressure in the hall bath was minimal.
Although they have a variety of restaurants at the World Center, It would have been nice to have one at the Palms. The Market Place was also limited. I also did not like the gym that was in the main lobby. It was a glass box with a few machines. Since I was traveling with children, I was also disappointed in the lack of a game room/ activity center.
It was a very relaxing location. Very close to Disney and shopping. I just expected more from a Marriott. Compared to a hotel it was great. But, compared to the Marriott I own it was just okay. The Marriott resorts I have stayed at are Lakeshore Reserve, Harbor Lake and Grande Vista. I own at Cypress Harbour.
