A family-friendly taste of the tropics in Orlando by major theme parks

A sports bar, pool bar, and full-service restaurant is available on site. Rooms come with Wi-Fi access, mini refrigerator, microwave oven. Additional services include 24-hour business center, parking and shuttle service to parks.

Rooms

Azure blue comforters and jade-colored walls and accents create a tropical feel in these comfortable accommodations at the International Palms Resort, which are available as standard rooms or suites. Beached-themed prints play up the casual style. Guests find the basics covered, including Wi-Fi access, work desk and sofa bed. A coffeemaker, mini-refrigerator and microwave invite in-room dining. Suites have the added luxuries of a dining table and separate living area.

Features

Families take advantage of the free-form resort-style pool surrounded by palm trees and lapping waterfalls at the International Palms Resort. The Pool Hut Bar serves light fare and drinks, while the Coral Key Bar and Grill gets the party started with nightly karaoke and live entertainment. Several fun activities are offered on site, such as movie night by the pool, create-your-own-ice-cream-sundaes, and handling alligators at Alligator Academy.

Apart from this hotel, holidaymakers can also unwind at the sister property, the oceanfront International Palms Resort Cocoa Beach located only 45 minutes away. It's the closest beach to Orlando! Vacationers enjoy the true Florida resort setting with choices of oceanfront suites, lofts, ocean view, poolside Cabana's and much more.

Vacation.

My family and I had a great experience. We had everything we needed, the rooms were clean and the wet and wild plus stores and restaurants were walking distance. The Orlando universal studios was not too far. The bar, store and swimming pool were awesome. Would definantely return to this hotel. Thank you for making our family vacation awesome. :)

Nice enough hotel close to Universal

A short cab ride from Universal, which was our park destination. Wet 'n Wild is within walking distance. Some nice restaurants and pubs in the area.

palms resort over night stay

The hotel was real nice. I would recommend to a friend. Only problem I had was with my reservation. It was a on the spot booking. An it took about 2 hours to get the reservation to the hotel. Other than the that. The hotel was nice.

The Villa is better than the other rooms

We have stayed there previously and tried a different location within the hotel. They had just renovated it, but it was not as nice nor as comfortable as the villa rooms they offer. They did just renovate, so everything is newly painted and the carpets are new. They also offered movies on your television that aren't out on DVD yet for about $5, which is pretty reasonable if you are looking for something to do at night. There are plenty of eateries located around the area and transportation to and from Universal Studios Orlando.

Average

Good location. Across tge street from Wet N Wild Waterpark, down the strew from Seaworld and Universal studios. Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants . As far as the hotel you get what you pay for. During my stay the hotel was under construction and being wired to allow guests to access wifi. If you have a family it would be a great place to stay but not for the romantic couple.

Not a bad place

Arrived at the hotel little early and did not allow me to check in till 4 p.m. The staff was not great as I thought and I had to sit with my family for almost 3 hours to check in. The elevators were bad and it seems like a very old facility. Do not compare this hotel with Hilton or Marriot and this is a low cost place for budget minded people. But it gives you value for your money.
