Beautiful property with excellent staff

The public areas of the J.W. Marriott were first class. The customer service afforded by all of the staff was beyond the normal higher class hotel experience. Our room was spotless,functional, and comfortable, but nothing out of the ordinary for a hotel of this class. The bath was the same. The pool area is spectacular; perfect for adults and children. The mojitos were quite good!

Weekend Getaway for Two

I decided it was time for a little "R&R" for the two of us. I didnt want to travel to the beach or deal with a B&B. JW Marriott came up as a possible choice. Good decision to stay here. It is a BEAUTIFUL hotel with great amenities and a friendly staff. Pool is gorgeous and the lazy river is.....well....lazy and fun. Convenience of the pool/bar staff is great and the food down at the pool is very good and reasonable priced. The main bar and the restaurants are convenient and the food is very good. The sushi bar in the middle of the main bar is a great touch and we made a lot of friends. On the downside there are a TREMENDOUS number of kids.....the hotel does "nickel and dime" you a bit. Valet parking is $25 per day, tubes for the lazy river are $7 each, drinks at the pool are astronomical, and carry plenty of singles because EVERYONE expects a tip. Valet, bell hop, pool waiters, servers, bartenders, housekeeping, etc. All in all a great weekend, not an "economy getaway" but really great. Id definitely go again.

Quick getaway

Exactly what you expect from a JW Marriott. Clean, modern, comfortable. Particularly good buffet breakfast. The location is a little out of the way. Charging for parking in such a remote location, did not seem very courteous to me, but it is what it is. Would come back.

Great family vacation place

We really enjoyed the lazy river and pool. We were on visiting for a weekend but will definitely come back. Overall experience was great except the outside pool dining experience - the flies enjoyed the meal more than we did.

Nice Hotel

Hotel was very clean and friendly. Room overall was comfortable and the grounds were very nice and family friendly. The price I paid was appropriate for the accommodations. On the down side, the staff was very friendly but poorly managed and lacked order. Room service menu lacked variety and was way over priced for the quality. Lastly, they were too aggressive with trying to get us to look into their point/time share program. Hotel was only close dinning options. With all the fine hotels in the area, I'll probably look elsewhere next time I'm in Orlando. However, for the price this would be a good backup.

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.

Good times don't come cheap!

Beautiful hotel - huge! It took us 15 mins. to get to our room. Hotel staff great! Food was good but very $$$$$! Next time we will pack a cooler!

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.
