Marriott's Royal Palms

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We loved our 2 room villa It was perfect for our trip to Disney Close to everything and full kitchen to help cut back on expenses at the parks. We could even see the fireworks from the magic kingdom from our bedroom at night :) you have full use of the larger Marriott just down the way with lots of restaurants and a huge pool. We will stay here again!

We started our trip off right! We stayed at the lovely Royal Palms in a 2 bdrm Villa. The staff was accommodating and helpful. The parking was free for guests with a shuttle service provided throughout the entire Marriott grounds. We were able to prepare our own meals and save on food costs, or hop on the shuttle to the World Center for a meal or to enjoy another pool. There are 3 totally separate pools. We ate outside on the private screened deck and soaked in the jetted tub. There were tvs in each bedroom and the living room for kicking back at night with on demand programming. This was by far the best accommodations I have ever stayed in for family vacation. It was close to shopping theme parks and the event we had to attend.

Nice villas, friendly staff, decent pool, beautiful grounds but the kid's activities were lacking for a Marriott Vacation Club resort. Most activities in the Royal Palms lobby had a charge and the "fun" and free activities such as scavenger hunts and races were done at the Orlando World Center Marriott by uninformed and uninterested staff. The water slides there lacked water pressure at times and the laser show was like a party in the pool - fun but hardly spectacular. The pool at the Royal Palms is relaxing but it's small. Looking forward to our next stay at the Marriott Harbour Lake.

Wonderful location and amenities. Enjoyed pool, going to Marriott world center pools and slides. Activities for my husband and I and our visiting grandson. Villas beautifully furnished with all needs.

We arrived at the Marriott's Royal Palms Resort on a Sunday evening and the front desk registration staff worker had our reservation on file and the room was assigned to our family as we requested on the ground floor and close to the pool. The resort room was a two bedroom condo with any and all things you will need to include full size washer and dryers. The kitchen includes all the pans and utensils needed for our family of six. The resort is beautiful and modern. The pool is very large and the kids had a great time playing basketball in the pool. The pool towels are provided by the resort at no extra charge. Great place for the family.

We were really happy with the resort. It was clean, rooms were well stocked with pots/pans for cooking, the house keeping was fantastic. Room was well decorated and spacious. It was quiet aside from one morning when the mowers were out at 5:00/5:30 am one day, which was annoying. We drove to the parks and came home every day in the afternoon, which was completely doable. Within 15 min of all the Disney parks. We swam at the little pool in resort most days snd went to the bigger pool at world center once. Both were nice. We'd recommend this resort to friends and family for a quiet escape, spacious rooms, close to Disney.

We had a great welcome upon arrival.. We had a 2 bedroom unit that sleeps six. We were located so close to all the parks and the directions were very easy to follow. They had lots of activities for all. Some were at a small fee and others were free. The pool is a great size with lots of lounges and umbrella tables. They also have a shuttle to take to the Marriott World Hotel where we were able to use the pool, water slide and kids area. The pool bar had a large selections for beverages and great menu for lunches. We couldn't find anything negative about our stay.

Fantastic stay! Clean, spacious, updated,close to everything you need. Easy access, helpful staff. It was fantastic to be able to use all the amenities at the Marriott World Center. Can't think of anything we didn't like. Loved this place!!

We rented a 2-bedroom condo on the property, and we will certainly be back. The facilities are spotlessly clean, the staff wants nothing more than to attend to your every need, and the room itself was wonderful. Two bedrooms, fold-out couch, 2 full bathrooms, living room, dining room, full kitchen, full laundry facilities, all with modern decor. The master suite has an open concept bathroom attached to the bedroom with no walls in between. If you are both waking at the same time, then this is not an issue. My wife up and out well before me, and she managed not to wake me while getting herself ready, despite the lack of walls between the sleeping area and the sink/tub area. The shower stall and toilet are in a separate area with a door, so privacy is not an issue for those tasks. The living room and master suite both open onto a screened-in porch that featured a large table and chairs, perfect for an early coffee or a late cocktail. While staying here you have access to all of the swimming pools on the property. The Falls Pool at the main hotel is enormous, warm, has plenty of deck chairs and umbrellas available, and there is a bar/restaurant in the pool area. Water slides for the kids are available at a pool near Falls Pool. Our son loved it. The main hotel features several restaurants and bars. We did not visit them, but based on appearances I would not have hesitated to eat or drink at any of them. There is a shuttle available from the Royal Palms area to the main hotel. This makes getting to the amenities very easy. The only annoyance comes from the fact that I'm a smoker. There is no smoking in the room - this I expected. But you are also prohibited from smoking on the patio. This is annoying and inconvenient. If you're a smoker, you know the joy of a cup of coffee and a smoke first thing in the morning. I was able to enjoy this ritual, but I had to do it in the designated smoking area. It wasn't far from the room, but it made it impossible to get a quick refill of java and have a second smoke. If you're a non-smoker, this facility will be a paradise for you.

Great suites- clean, plenty of room, comfortable. Between this property and the nearby World Center there were many great amenities. The housekeeping staff was excellent. Some (not all) of the front desk staff could try a bit harder, but overall this was a great place to stay.
