The Gaylord Palms epitomizes Florida grandeur. The sprawling resort pays homage to the various regions of the state, from breezy Key West to old-world St. Augustine. Four and a half acres of themed experiences under glass walk guests through theme park-like exhibits filled with lush foliage and architecture that capture the identity of the featured area. Rooms complement the style of each wing. Amenities tend to every need, whether it is scheduled transportation to Walt Disney World or babysitting services.  

Rooms

Lining the perimeter of four themed atriums, the 1,406 rooms of the Gaylord Palms are designed to mimic Key West, the Everglades, St. Augustine and Emerald Bay. Spaces wow with striped cabana fabrics, Spanish and Mission-style furniture and rich woods. Amenities aim for extra pampering, from glass-enclosed, walk-in showers to lighted magnifying makeup and shaving mirrors. Balconies encourage guests to take in the circus-like views below.  

Property features

If the massive boat "docked" in the Key West Atrium does not grab the attention of Gaylord Palms guests, then the live alligator feedings and oversized octopus fountain in Clearwater Cove will. Relache Spa, a 20,000-square-foot oasis, pampers visitors from head to toe with an extensive menu of massages, facials, body treatments and nail and hair services. The spa is also home to a 4,000-square-foot fitness center equipped with cardiovascular machines and Smith Press System.

Highlights
  • Four and a half acres of themed experiences to showcase the regional architecture of Florida
  • Six restaurants and lounges
  • Clearwater Cove, which features a zero-entry pool, octopus water slide and sand play area

great hotel

We stayed there for the week of Thanksgiving. The environment is very relaxing. My daughter likes the (heated outdoor) swimming pool and the water slide. Facing the inside, the view from the room (and the balcony) is gorgeous. The only downside is that we can hear the band performance loud during the night (yes, live performance till 10pm).

Fantastic weekend getaway

This is the 6 or 7th time we have stayed and we have never had a bad experience. The pool is great for the family and kids. The only thing we did not enjoy were the new pool chairs. The got rid of the lounges and are mostly chairs. Not comfortable for an entire day at the pool

Convenient and beautiful

This is a very lovely, relaxing hotel. It is especially beautiful when decorated for Christmas. The room was comfortable and the location was great - very conveneient for Disney's Animal Kingdom. Our only disappointment was that the Christmas shows were not offered during the week at the hotel in the evenings. We had stayed here before and enjoyed the shows.

Luxurious and fun

The Gaylord Palms is a hotel that is a city of its own. It has an indoor tropical paradise, miniature golf, immaculate restaraunts, family pools, shows, and the best service around. The staff was so helpful and friendly and the rooms were well kept and hospitable. We spent two days just around the hotel because there is so much to do. It is extremely close to Disney and offers shuttles to other theme parks. The beauty and family oriented atmosphere make this hotel a must!
