Hotel review

Overall our experience was very good. Pools are great, rooms are great, hotel staff is very nice. Food offerings leave something to be desired but are fair. We were supposed to get free children's meals with the price and never did get it or could find out how.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

I don't know if they allow cooler at the pool but I recommend bringing your own snacks and drinks. A kids meal is $10 for a PB &J. Granted they are big but to a kid it is not always better. Pool side adult beverages average $12 each so plan accordingly. We thought it was going to be an inexpensive getaway for 1 night. The room was $219.00 our total cost to stay there was $600 for food and drinks for a family of 5! And the kids ate for free!

Great oasis in Orlando!

This beautiful, isolated resort complex (just minutes from all the main attractions) seems so far away from all the craziness of the Orlando tourist areas. Very friendly staff, a lovely room, great fitness facility and spa, beautiful grounds. Really loved it, would definitely go back!

Good Hotel to stay.

We stayed at the JWM for 6 days.A very good hotel with pretty good staff. However the prices at the restaurants were a bit pricy I felt.The poolside setup was excellent.

Good Family Fun...spring for the suite!

Very nice property. Lots of options for swimming and playing with small children. Dining options are expensive, sparse, and not that great for kids. Standard room was too small for our family, with two kids (1 year old in a crib and 4 year old in one double bed)...we upgraded to a executive suite for a couple of nights which fit our family much better (what is the point of a vacation if you and your spouse have to go to bed with the kids?!) I'd go back for sure, next time I'm going to check out the marriott condos across the street!

The only dining options are in the hotel and theyre not cheap, so make sure your room has a mini fridge not a mini bar and bring in your own snacks and easy lunch or breakfast items...

GREAT STAY!!!

We were at the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes for a family wedding close by. From start to finish, staff were not just friendly, they seemed to genuinely enjoy giving good service. Compared to other trips, this one was wonderful. Pool is excellent and an event all by itself. There are tons of things to do alone or with children.

Wonderful family vacation

This was one of the best hotels we've stayed at. It's a beautiful place. But more important the staff was always polite and willing to help. The rooms where very clean and the bathroom sparkled. The food was delicious. It was a wonderful vacation.
