We stayed for a few days in February 2020 and had a great time. The river/pool was a blast and our son loved it! The little shops on premises were nice, and the local dining was very good. We'll definitely be back!

Excellent room bed was amazing as well as the shower. Excellent staff every single person was fantastic. We got bikes they come with the resort fee and went on the bike trail no alligators or snakes!! We also did an Eco tour, Norm was our guide, he was absolutely amazing, we saw incredible birds fish and yes an alligator!! One problem we had was with golf pro shop clerk dissing us for our clothing attire. It’s one thing to remind us for next time it’s another to announce it loudly four times. We complained to the manager and they took care of us. There is an incredible spa with pretty much anything would want available. The pool is amazing and has a lazy current that will take you around. Enjoy!!! Read less

This is one of our favorite properties. The architecture is truly grande if a bit faux. It’s a lovely quiet retreat in Orlando. The spa fitness and lap pool is shared with Ritz Carlton next door and is my favorite lap pool ever. The rooms are basic but nice, bath is beautiful with soaking tub and glass shower. Dining is delicious at Primo and Citron. I especially want to single out Ms Kelsey Rodrigues, Front Desk Agent, who was especially gracious, making us feel like the most valued guests in the place. This included a box of chocolates from her at check in and choc strawberries at turn down. Mostly it was her kind, professional support that was extraordinary. What an asset she is the Marriott brand. The entire staff is wonderful. We have been so many times that our waiter remembered us. As usual Marriott gets it done with style and grace.
