The hotel

When you’re booking a trip to the theme parks in Orlando, you don’t imagine that you’d be able to find a haven of relaxation and luxury right in the centre – well here it is. The JW Marriott Orlando Bonnet Creek Resort & Spa sits within the gates of Walt Disney World Resort, with a shuttle service taking you to the park gates in no time at all. The action is right around you, but when you step into the resort you’l find yourself in a 75-acre protected oasis where you can recuperate. The rooms have a sleek, sophisticated design, with ample space in the family suites for larger groups. And from the family suite accommodations to the rock climbing, garden golf, and the activity schedule at the kids club, there’s always something to keep the little ones entertained, rain or shine, whatever their hobbies. Whilst they’re occupied in resort, be sure to visit the spa by JW, inspired by the rejuvenating warmth of the ‘Sunshine State’, these treatments will have you feeling your best in no time. Disney Springs is just 5 miles away, with its wide variety of restaurants and bars on offer, but the JW Marriott have plenty of their own to save you the trip on those tired evenings. illume is a particular favourite for guests, located on the 9th floor, giving you a great vantage point for the Disney fireworks whilst enjoying Asian inspired tapas and fresh sushi. For those chilled poolside afternoons, check out the happy hour at Unreserved Beer Garden, where you can enjoy a range of craft beers or a chilled glass of rose in the late afternoon sun.

Stayed at JW Grande Lakes prior to this visit because we've always enjoyed the lazy river. Decided to try JW Bonnet Creek as it's closer to Disney. Wow! Should have stayed here all our nights. Was recognized as a Platinum Marriott member, upgraded to 1-bedroom using points..but decided to pay a little extra for 2 bedroom so our daughter had her own room and bathroom. It was beautiful with a wrap around balcony..wish it had outdoor furniture tho. Drinks and sushi at rooftop restaurant were delicious and could view 2 Disney parks fireworks. Breakfast buffet had numerous choices we all enjoyed. Rented a cabana at the pool which was lovely and service top notch. Will definitely skip the lazy river next time..this is our new go to place. Much more upscale and relaxing. Thank you all for making this a fantastic birthday stay. Read less

This hotel is great! The staff are attentive, but not in your face. The rooms are nice and the location is great. The hotel is still very new which is a plus. It is a hotel was will definitely consider returning to. We wish we stayed here again at the end of our trip rather than heading to JW Marriott Grand Lakes.

Okay. I’m NEVER staying anywhere else ever again. We were so spoiled here. Kelsey at the front desk, Shawna Stephanie and Markeisha (spelling?) at the pool, Susan and Guillermo at Unreserved Food Bazaar… you made us feel so special.

Okay. I’m NEVER staying anywhere else ever again. We were so spoiled here. Kelsey at the front desk, Shawna Stephanie and Markeisha (spelling?) at the pool, Susan and Guillermo at Unreserved Food Bazaar… you made us feel so special. We had plans to take the shuttle somewhere but we were so happy and comfortable and welcomed at the resort we never ended up leaving. My bestie and I had the best girls trip ever and we just wanted to say thank you for making this so much fun for us. Read less
