The hotel

Just minutes from all of Orlando's main attractions, this hotel is truly a destination within a destination, spread out over 200 lush tropical acres of gardens. There is so much to do here, you need never leave. Choose from any of 6 sparkling swimming pools, including the lagoon pool with waterfalls, whirlpools and a water slide - kids love it! For active types there's tennis and volleyball or a fitness centre which is open 24-hours a day (just in case you get the sudden urge to flex your muscles at 3.00am). More relaxing activities are available at the splendid 18-hole golf course or at the resort's spa, where a range of treatments are on offer. And not forgetting the fantastic range of dining options on offer here, with 10 restaurants and lounges offering a range of cuisine to suit all tastes!

The hotel is nice, but we were disappointed in our room. When we went to use the pullout sofa sleeper, there was no mattress in it. When we told the front desk we were told it would be taken care of while we were out. When we returned, no mattress had been put in the sofa. When we called again, we were offered a roll away bed.

The hotel is nice, but we were disappointed in our room. When we went to use the pullout sofa sleeper, there was no mattress in it. When we told the front desk we were told it would be taken care of while we were out. When we returned, no mattress had been put in the sofa. When we called again, we were offered a roll away bed. This was not acceptable since it was only a single. Not only did we not have the bed, the couch was also not able to be sat on since it had no support. This surely is not what we would expect from a Marriott. Very disappointed. How do you not have a mattress in the pullout sofa bed??? Read less

the hotel was nice and renovated and in a very convenient spot in relation to where the theme parks are at. The hotel has a lot of nice amenities and the staff was very helpful. the only issue i had was that the room numbers can get a bit confusing the first time you check in

I stay here for an annual conference. The hotel has made some really nice improvements over the past few years. I stayed in a renovated room which was very nice and the pool area is nice with plenty of lounge chairs. My biggest issue is the lack of sound proofing between rooms. The party staying next to me had an infant and I felt like I could hear crying every morning and toys banging around. On the other side of me, I could hear an alarm go off every morning. If you are a light sleeper, bring a sound machine. You will want the white noise. Read less

My wife and I have stayed at this property several times over the last few years. While we have always enjoyed our visits, this visit was better than ever due to the warmth and friendliness of several staff members. Specifically, Jose and Dantes who we met in the Lobby Lounge when they served us. They are such wonderful representatives of the Marriott brand. Their customer-centric service was only exceeded by their kindness and genuine desire to make connections with us as people. In addition, Juan at the Lobby Lounge was extremely engaging, even though he was not directly waiting on us. David, a manager also engaged us in conversation. Dantes remembered us the next day when we were having lunch at the Fals Bar & Grill and greeted us once again with his warmth and smile. The property is clean and first class. Read less

I was greeted with the smile of from the front desk asking me if I wanted to upgrade almost immediately. When I said yes I'd like a room in the West Tower by The Spa pool, immediately tell me something with nothing more than a view of some trees, charge me extra money, charge me before my stay was complete then said there were no other rooms… Read more
I was greeted with the smile of from the front desk asking me if I wanted to upgrade almost immediately. When I said yes I'd like a room in the West Tower by The Spa pool, immediately tell me something with nothing more than a view of some trees, charge me extra money, charge me before my stay was complete then said there were no other rooms available. This poor customer service is awful compared to the Ritz-Carlton or other chains that really take the customer into account. Marriott can Nickel Dime it's customers forever but doesn't have a clue how to serve its customers. Why should I pay for a certain balcony over anything other than a parking lot. This makes no sense. The pools were cold and dirty, as the maintenance has gone down hill. Read less
