Business trip paid by my client so I didn't have to worry about expenses. Very beautiful setting and everything was extremely clean with some of the best trained and friendly staff of the many hotels I have worked at. I was part of an A/V crew that setup and operated in the Tuscany Ballroom. The catered food for the event was absolutely the best I've ever had. Every member of the staff I dealt with were genuinely happy to assist me. I really appreciated their attention to details. Read less

Its the Ritz no more needs to be said. Everything was excellent from check in to check out. The bike trail made it better and the renting of the bikes was the perfect twist. All the restaurants were good and it was just a good experience. I would go back again in a minute. This will be my spot when I return to Orlando.

What a great stay for mother’s day. We booked the presidential suite and it was amazing. We had tons of family and friends join us and we had plenty of room to entertain. Everyone working there were amazing. Very friendly and accommodating. Could not be happier with our stay

Stayed at the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes hotel from 24th - 27th April 2019. It’s a beautiful resort, beautiful grounds. Check in was smooth, my room, lovely and very comfortable. The staff are very warm, always ready to help. I must confess I didn’t see half of it as we didn’t have much time. Will be going back in July for 10 days and I intend to… Read more
Stayed at the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes hotel from 24th - 27th April 2019. It’s a beautiful resort, beautiful grounds. Check in was smooth, my room, lovely and very comfortable. The staff are very warm, always ready to help. I must confess I didn’t see half of it as we didn’t have much time. Will be going back in July for 10 days and I intend to explore as much as I can. There’s an 18-hole golf course, a world class spa which I visited, two swimming pools, 13 lakes, I understand, facilities to keep children busy, bikes to ride around the property. The JW Marriott is just a short walk down the corridor. We actually had breakfast one morning at the JW Marriott and charged it back to our room at the Ritz Carlton. I really look forward to going back in July. Read less
