Knowing that our upcoming trip to Disney World would not be very relaxing (ha!), we decided to leave home a few days early and stay at the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes. I went back and forth countless times between staying here, or the JW Marriott next door. I made the right choice. Check in was a breeze, and our luggage met us upstairs moments later. The staff took great care of us throughout the entire stay, and I utilized the chat feature in the app a few times as well. The rooms were lovely, of course, as were the grounds. We were there mid-week and didn't realize that several of the restaurants are next door at the Marriott. Highball and Harvest was where we spent our first dinner and two breakfasts, and everything was divine. Tip: get to breakfast early for the best coffee you've ever had. 😋 Service was remarkable every time. The pool at the Ritz was lovely and quiet. If you're traveling with small children, a quick note that they do not provide life jackets for kiddos... and there's no true shallow bit. They do have a nice splash pad nearby, though. We ended up walking over to the Marriott to get our two pool tubes, included with the resort fee, so our little guy could kick about on his own. You're allowed to use the lazy river there, too, but it was pretty crowded with lots of adults having a good time (drinks in hand, taking up most of the river), so if you're looking for peace and quiet, grab your tubes and head back to the Ritz. Overall, one of the best hotel stays we've had in years. We will definitely be back!! Read less

Ritz at grande lake is amazing. The grounds and hotel is beautiful. The service is excellent. We arrived at 2 am in the morning due to significant weather and taxi delays.. Ms Nicole at room service made sure we had a meal delivered at 11 pm just before they closed in our room beautifully prepared and with extra personal touches. She was fabulous organizing that for us. I am truly grateful. She went way above and beyond for us. TEN THUMBS UP!!! MR DURRER, the manager at the hotel also was fabulous and gave us our club level room! The room was overlooking the lake it was beautiful and thank you for making my daughter 8th birthday a bit more special! The club level is truly must do for this property and it is worth the extra $300 per night they charge. The food and drink choices is fabulous. The lounge is clean and staff is very friendly. There was plenty of choices for kids, cookies, chocolate milk , and ice cream in the freezer drawer. My daughter loved it. The dessert time was the best!!! And not to be missed. They don't have the big pumps of the bathroom amenities like other Marriott and still using the Asphrey stuff which is great. But we had to keep asking for extras because it is in such a small tube. :) but that's all personal preference and environmental awareness. Wish they will switch to the big pumps to help save the environment. In all, it is a really beautiful resort. We will be back. We visit Orlando at least 3 times a year, so see you guys very soon again and making this my to go to resort when I am in town. Read less

Amazing hotel with the five star service. We LOVED this hotel and Trish in the Club Lounge treated us like Royalty. The food was amazing and my husband especially loved the Hibiscus cocktail in the Club Lounge. We also loved the pool and the Lazy River located on the JW Marriott side. It was an easy walk over - a couple of minutes and we floated for hours. We had an amazing lunch at H&H after swimming. The French Fries are to die for. We love the Ritz Carlton and this one exceeded our expectations. Read less

We stayed for one night for a friends birthday and we were beside ourselves with how amazing the service was! The two people we connected with the most were Milo from the lobby bar, and Mario from high ball and harvest! They both were so sweet and attentive. They made our stay! Thank you!!
