Great Value

We stayed here in January and are going back in February. Plenty of space, large bathrooms and master bedroom. Beds were comfortable except for the weird platform around the king size bed in the master bedroom. The wife and i both hit or legs trying to get into the bed after a late night bathroom trip. Other than that it was great.

awesome family spot

It was great for the price. We enjoyed the hot tub because the pool was outside and it was cold when we visited.

Hidden gem

I was apprehensive about this resort but was amazingly surprised. The room was beautiful. The kitchens are so nice. Everything is so open and lovely. The staff was friendly. The location was nice also. The one thing I would change would have been the king room shower head .. It was very lame with no pressure. But everything else was so amazing! I can't wait for us to stay again!!

Great value for the money

We stayed 2 nights over MLK weekend. When we got there they were out of the 2 room suite that we had booked and they upgraded us to a 3 bedroom for free. It was great, plenty of space and large shower. 2 full bathrooms. The TV and phones were not working when we got there. We were leaving to go to a dinner reservation and i told the front desk on the way out and it was fixed by the time we got back. There is no wireless internet in the rooms but i was told there was free wired internet and there were plenty of jacks in the suite that were labeled. We are going back in February so i'm taking a patch cable with me. I may even try taking a wireless router to see if i can hook it up and get wireless for the family in the room. Overall it was a great stay, back roads to the park make it so you don't have to get on Hwy. 192 and you can avoid all the traffic. I have seen several reviews that talk about bugs in the rooms but we did not see any. The carpet did seem a little worn but it was clean. I'm not sure what others are expecting for the price. If you want the Ritz this is not it but if you want a decent place with lots of room for a great rate then this is for you.

Birthday Trip

7 of us stayed in one of their 3 bedroom condos( 4 adults 2 two yrs olds and a 13yr old. On arrival the place seemed a bit dull but the front desk was courteous and pleasant. When we got to our suite it was definitely quite spacious and it was clean, however, the room really needed some new furniture/ decorations. The bar stools had big rips on the seat, there was a plate broken in the dishes, the king bed frame was bigger than the king mattress. Things like that were the main disappointments. Another let down was the Free wifi is only in the lounge and we couldn't get it in the room. The Front desk staff took note of the rips in the furniture but did not replace it. Overall we personally had a great trip and didn't stay in the room much.

Fiancee's Birthday Vacation

This was the second time my fiancée & I had stayed at the Palisades Resort. We absolutely LOVE this resort because of the location and because of the comfort. The suite was a 2-bedroom & the master suite is amazing!!! A king size bed, oversized tub, glass shower, and very spacious. Plus you get a washer & dryer, dining room area, living room area, and a full size kitchen in the suite. You do have to pay a fee when you get to the hotel for the room to be cleaned after you check-out (there is no room service & there is no housekeeping during the duration of your stay) but that doesn't bother us because we don't like strangers in our space. I'm actually getting ready to book the Palisades Resort again for my own birthday, but I have noticed that room prices are $20-$30 higher a night & I don't like that, but I love the resort so I'll have to suck it up! This is a GREAT place to stay in the Orlando area!

Awesome

We stayed at this resort along with two other couples for a holiday weekend. The staff was really friendly and quick to get us in our rooms and in order. The rooms are soooooo spacious. The bathrooms are clean. And two of the bedrooms have balcony access. The lobby is full with area add, gym, pool tables, and computers. Where we were able to print our tickets for free The resort is near many restaurants, walgreens, and gas stations. It's a 15 minute ride to the disney area and about 30 for universal islands of adventure. I would definitely stay again
