I often write my reviews from the point of view from the perspective of traveling with a large family. My second view point is traveling with children of various ages.
The Grande Vista fits my kind of accommodations to a T. The rooms are large and well equipped. We were given a ground floor corner room which was huge!! The pools are plentiful and outstanding. We went to the Village pool. I have children ranging from under 1 to 16. There is something for everyone at the main village pool. 2 jetted spas, a lap pool, a kiddie pool, a large main pool and a outdoor sauna.
The market place had plenty sundries albeit expensive. The grounds are immaculate and check in was a breeze. We are not vacation club members but were not asked or pressured to join.
Plenty of activities to keep the whole family satisfied. This is definitely a winner for our quick getaway to Orlando.

I stayed here on a couples visit and was very pleased with the entire experience. The room was enormous including a foyer, dining room, full kitchen with plates and utensils, tv area, screened in balcony with a table and chairs, bedroom, and a beautiful bathroom with a jetted tub. I was hoping the tub would have been a bit bigger but it didn't matter much. I would come back to this hotel if I were looking for a more upscale stay than your regular hotel.

My wife and I decided get some sun and relax for a long weekend. We were treated to one of the best vacations we've ever had. The room we got was outstanding. It was in a great part of the resort, The accommodations were outstanding. There was plenty to do on the property, and we were close to all the Orlando attractions.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner suite.

We returned to this resort this April. The grounds are kept very clean. We enjoyed spending time the different pools during the day and the fire pit/ lighthouse/ beach area at night. Several nights there were different activities from live music to s'mores. There is a little bit of everything at this resort for everyone and a great place for fun and relaxation. We enjoyed spending our days here at the resort and also at the theme parks in Orlando.

There is pool towel service, restaurant pool bars, a marketplace store, and more! The resort is convienent my located near sea world and several great restaurants off of international drive.

We will be back!

The check in process was pleasant. We arrived early and our room was ready. The room was great, large and clean. The resort grounds are beautiful. Food is a little pricey, but most units have a kitchen. The pools are great and they have a ton of activities. We will stay again.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Marriot Grande Vista. Just like last time, we loved it. There are multiple pools around the property (including kids play pools, lap pools for exercising, multiple hot tubs, and waterfalls). There are planned activities throughout the day for kids, teens, and adults. The golf course, while only a short 9 hole, is a really well maintained course with some challenging holes.

The resort is beautiful. The rooms are very well appointed. The bed was the perfect mix of firm yet soft (we slept like babies every night). The full kitchen has just about anything you would need to cook, if you so desire. The staff is very friendly. You need something....they get it for you. Although we didn't use it much this time, there is a convenient store. There are also some restaurants, some of which are fine dining and the other that has fast good choices. There are also computers and printers at your disposal for free in the main building. There are also grocery stores, gas stations, and just about anything else you could need within a couple of miles if the resort.

If we had any complaint, it would be regarding the pool table/ping pong/foosball area. We have been to Marriot Harbor Lakes which has more than one of each of these tables. Because Grande Vista only has one of each, there are often several people waiting to play or who just give up altogether. With the number of kids and teenagers that we have seen each time we have been to Grande Vista, it would be a smart (and minor) investment to get a few more tables. Also, the arcade, while being good, is full of rather pricey games. Because of this, it has always been empty every time we have gone in it (we haven't played either, but sometimes have checked to see if our kids were in there watching others play). Maybe people are in there when we aren't looking, but as for us, if our kids could play the games cheaper and get more bang for their buck, we would actually make use of the arcade. But, arcade games are this expensive just about anywhere you go, so this isn't particular to this resort.

I could go on and on, but hopefully this gives you a good overview. Overall, the Grande Vista is tops in our book and is a favorite spot for a relaxing, stay-at-the-resort-all-week kind of experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay here. The room was large and comfortable and we enjoyed dining at the Grill, an upscale experience at moderate prices. It was a long but enjoyable walk to the Grill from our room as we were at the other end of the resort. You just have to watch out for the golf carts!

Room Tip: We were at the north end and had a view of the golf course from our balcony. It was fun to watch th...
