Cable television and high-speed Internet access are standard amenities.

Features

Golf lovers at any age and skill level challenge their skills at the sprawling Bay Hill Club and Lodge resort, which established the Arnold Palmer Golf Academy to teach the fundamentals according to Palmer and his philosophy of the game. No more than four students are paired with an instructor, and individual coaching is also available. For non-golf activities, visitors book a spa treatment, grab a workout in the fitness center or pool, or practice on six tennis courts.

Work Trip!!

The hotel says it has pick up from the air port!! It waitied 45 minutes and the hotel never showed up. Then i found that they do not have hotel pick up. But i paid a extra 30 dollars to be picked up. The staff was never around if you had questions. And they also advertise that there is a coffee machine in the room. And there never was. I asked and they told me that there is no coffee machine for any rooms.

Went on business, but a great family getaway!

Went on business with my husband, two adult sons and one daughter in law. Stayed in a two bedroom house on the fairway. Beautiful view! Very relaxing. The house design is very eclectic. Probably from the 60's with today upgrades (flooring, carpets kitchen appliances and master bedroom bathroom). We all enjoyed the house which is quite spacious. We didn't really use the full kitchen or hang out as much as we would have liked to. We would like to come back with the grandchildren. It's close to Universal Studios, a lot of nice restaurants and a Whole Foods Store. The Club House and restaurant (good waffles) are quite nice! The service is also quite good. My husband and sons played golf and that was expensive but a lot of fun. They saw Mr. Palmer and he kindly signed some golf balls for them.

Bay Hill

As a seasoned and polite meeting planner, I didn't appreciate the Front Desk Gentlemen - was not very polite - an odd start to an otherwise fine property. Also didn't appreciate being placed in the worst room of the property when there clearly other rooms available. Taking discounted rooms should NOT equate to poor service or room selection!

Quiet and pretty nice hotel

The hotel is very nice; the workers are very friendly and helpful. The hotel does not have the most appealing rooms because there are certain important things missing from the room, like a iron, ironing board, refrigerator/microwave; however, the staff is very accommodating, and will and can get you those necessities. They have great tennis courts, staff there is excellent, fitness room, and pool area.
