Lake Marion Golf Resort
Ranked #65 of 154 Hotels in Kissimmee
Reviewed 28 January 2008

I have read all the reviews about lake marion golf resort and saw that there were mixed reports on the place and the accommodation. We arrived on a wednesday night having flown in from london gatwick, this was not our first holiday in the orlando area we have been frequent visitors since 2003. First up, the guys on security are first class, really helpfull, we had booked our accomadation direct from a villa web site and the owner of the condo, having looked around at prices we were suprised at how cheap (for uk) the condo seemed to be. We paid £500 for 2 weeks and having looked around could not find anything to match the price. I hoped that like all people do the price was not going to mean that the place was a dive and the pictures were from 1977, but no, the condo was spot on. Very clean and plenty of space, nice on suites and everything we needed for the holiday. You will find however that you are out in the wilds. It is a good 40 minute ride in the car to 192, and although the map makes it look like haines city is close, it is not, that's at least 30-40 minutes away as well. Ponciana is the closest town and its not bad, we found the cheapest fuel around at $2.99 a gallon (cheap for us brits) at the local publix, but ponciana is still in the throws of development, it does have a walmart and a publix and a dennys and a few of the other type shops like a pizza shop a chinese a couple of banks, but none of the other regular restuarants yet, and as has been the way in orlando & kissimmee for the past 10 + years there are road works on most of the roads locally. I cant say why some poeple have given this resort a bad review, I can only tell you about my stay, this place is great, nice and clean, yes the linen in our condo was not egyptian cotton, but it was clean and so was the condo. Price wise you cant go wrong here. there are 2 pools and an outdoor jaccuzzi, only one of the pools were heated but that was fine, we swam in both, tempreture was around the high 70,s most of the time, oh and yes there is a lake, its not been really well sign posted and the road from the reort to the lake looks new, but its stunning and well worth the 2-3 min car ride to have a look, there are also nature trails and if we had had more time I would have hired a bike to ride about on. If you have kids and have a budget you cannot go wrong here, it's just the traveling to and from 192, the theme parks and eating out that takes a little longer, as the fuel prices are so cheap in the us it was not a major factor for our family, we tended to go out for the whole day rather that return to the condo mid afternoon. So I can recomend this place highly, the only bad bit that we came across was the people in the resort reception, they were less than helpfull (our experiance) as we didnt book our condo through them it had very little impact on stay.Very happy to speak with anyone regarding this stay.

Check in is at 4 but the office closes by 5:30 so we called to tell them that we would be a late check -in. We arrived before 8 but there were no directions on how to get into the gate. I had read an earlier review and found the keys to our unit. The air was not working and after some time we received a return phone call from one of the three numbers we called to report the problem. After 2 hours a very nice man came and fixed the air. It worked for about 40 minutes. Another phone call to Carmen (the manager) and we were told where to find keys to another unit.

Our second unit had a working air conditioner and more updated furniture so we were thrilled...until we found the bathrooms had no towels, no toilet paper and were never cleaned!

Our third unit was nice. The units are old and poorly constructed. (shower door wouldn't open, floors creak on 2nd floor). It is a 2-bedroom villa for the price of a hotel room but I would recommend staying elsewhere. No general store, ridiculous continental breakfast (little debbies), no watercraft rental, not friendly, and definitely not 3 stars. If you don't mind old and worn out and aren't looking for amenties it would be ok for a family on a budget. Otherwise you are better off at a hotel!

Will never come close to it??. Imagine that we have to wash the sheet to sleep on theme?? imagine the breakfast is frozen and toaster not working (and we have to wait until they come back from shopping)?? Imagine there is no lake(even it's called Lake Marion) Imagine coming back tired from the attraction and you have at least one hour making lefts and rights to get there (in the middle of no where??? and much moooore.

We stayed at Lake Marion Golf Resort from 2 - 10 December 2005. It's fantastic. Although we booked direct through an owner, the on-site staff are great. Check in was no problem. We had a problem with a smoke detector, we notified security, who came round immediately although it was about 9.30pm. The houses are clean - although our one would have benefitted from a visit from a window cleaner! The community is very quiet, but everyone you meet is very friendly. The pool area is also kept in very good condition. It's about 40 mins to Disney - which wasn't a problem for us. Might be for people with children though. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Lake Marion Resort for a week in August. The three bedroom villa was great (clean, nicely furnished and well maintained)! This property you are either going to love or... well not. It is located on the outer edges of Poinciana on Lake Marion, which is about 25 minutes south-west of Kissimmee. Disney is about 45 minutes. The resort is a good value!

It's quiet, restful and most pleasant. The clubhouse, pool, and outdoor bar areas were clean and inviting. If you are looking for the excitement and action of the big Disney-style resorts in Kissimmee/Orlando, etc., this is NOT the place for you. A complimentary continental breakfast was served every morning in the clubhouse. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. We'll be back!!
