My family just returned from a week long stay at the Marriott Royal Palms. It was my husband, my mother-in-law, my father-in-law, my 2 preschool aged children, and myself. We have stayed at MANY timeshare properties in Central Florida and this is my new favorite!
The villa was very large...we never once felt cramped. The front bedroom was maybe a bit small, but it was perfectly serviceable. The en suite bathroom for the front bedroom had a very convenient door arrangement. There was a door from the whole of the suite out into the living area, but there was also a separate door to the bedroom.
The master had a nice king-sized bed with a duvet (which I love...not icky like those polyester bed spreads). There was plenty of room in there for us. There were two nightstands, a large dresser, a comfortable chair, and a writing table/desk. There is also a door out to the screened in porch. Also in the master suite was a very large bathroom with a HUGE jacuzzi tub (we used it to store things we didn't want the kids to get in to), a double sink, a stand up shower, a toilet, and a reasonably large closet. There was a safe inside the closet. The toilet and stand up shower were in a separate room. The bedroom area was carpeted while the bathroom areas had tile floors.
The kitchen was very spacious and very well equipped. It kind of felt like no one else had ever used the stuff. There wasn't a crock pot, but there WAS a toaster, blender, and all the major appliances. They provide enough dishwasher soap that there is no need to bring your own. There were also coffee filters provided.
The laundry room had full size washer and dryer (SOOOO CONVENIENT), and there was just a single use of laundry soap (I think it was Tide).
The living room/dining combo area was great. The dining table has a nice big round table (and the kitchen has a bar area with three seats). The living room had a HUGE and very very comfortable couch and three additional chairs. My kids slept on the pull out couch, and it had to be the biggest and most comfortable sofa bed I have ever encountered. It was king sized, and I think it was memory foam. There was no "bar in the back" on this one. Very very comfortable. However, we never found any bedding for the bed. I am sure they would have sent some up if we had asked, but we never did.
There was also the screened in porch which is always a nice touch. It had a table for 4 on it.
The pool was very large and there were two VERY hot hot tubs. They provided noodles and towels poolside. Very nice. We also went to the pool at the main hotel. Very nice! There was a splash pool for the little ones, and three big slides for the big ones (the slides are not open all the time, so you may want to check those hours if you want to use them).
Last, there was the staff. They were extremely helpful and friendly. We never encountered a frown. When we wanted to go use the pool up at the main hotel they were more than happy to shuttle us there and back...always very quickly. I even wanted to get my haircut and they quickly found a place for me to go close by. Every small and large request was met with an eagerness to meet our needs. When I called to confirm my reservation the week before the manager said, "We can't wait for you to see our service." She was absolutely right! Impeccable service.
I should also say that the location is totally ideal for a Disney vacation.
I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a quality location, and place with extra space for a whole family.
