General

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. A salon pampers with full- or half-day packages and individual hair, nail and skin-care treatments.

Legendary golfer Arnold Palmer lives and plays at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge, which hosts the annual Bay Hill Invitational, part of the PGA Tour.

Comfort, Quiet, and Welcomed

Everything I have to say is POSITIVE. The employees are very friendly and welcoming. The dining rooms are spectacular along with the food. A very nice selection on the menus. We ate breakfast and dinner there and every meal was a delight. One thing I must mention is the shower and bathtub are lacking safety bars which I feel are very important. The non slip substance was worn off the tub which made it very slippery. Our experience there, however, was wonderful. Oh, one more thing...the view from rooms and dining room is beautiful.

family trip

Great place. My only negative comment would be if you want a late cup of tea or coffee, there is virtually no way to get it without leaving the property, as there is not anything in your room to prepare it and we were told there are no microwaves anywhere on the property. So if the cafe is closed, have a plan B. Other than that, great location.

beauutiful accomidations

The hotel looks like a very upscale country club which I suppose it is most of the year. The food and service in the dinning room couldn't have been better. Very close to all the Orlando attractions.

This was a last minute trip to Orlando... most hotels were booked solid. Hotel was ok, little dated, but staff was pleasant, and price was reasonable.

Our favorite Orlando spot.

Take Arnold off the name of this place, it would still be a gem. Add his name to it, it's unforgettable.

Fantastic Getaway!

I really shouldn't be sharing this jewel because yes, I wish to keep this place to myself but APBayHill and their wonderful staff need to be recognized for the excellence that they demonstrate every time we visit. The staff are wonderful, the location is very convenient to attractions yet you can relax with peace of mind and luxury. Again, please do not share this too much or we will be both unable to secure rooms at this wonderful place.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Before discovering APBayHill, we stayed at a variety of spots before finding this wonderful place. Seaworld/Aquatica is located nearby as well as Universal Studios while Disney is a short easy drive down I-4.

Great Value

We were looking for a last minute hotel in Orlando and to my suprise we found the Bay Hill Lodge. I've always heard about the golf course but the lodge was fantastic. Lots of history for golf fans and the value was exceptional.

Great couples retreat

This benign a mature upper Class Golf resort it was very peaceful; ie, not hearing kids run up and down the halls as you would at a Disney resort. The lodge was so quiet I felt like we were the only ones there. Very friendly service, prompt room service, food was great too!
