Marriott's Sabal Palms
Ranked #148 of 341 Hotels in Orlando
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 August 2010

This is the closest of the three Marriott Vacation Club properties on the Marriott World Center grounds. It is directly behind the hotel. Sabal Palms has two bedroom condos. They are good sized, decently clean and well equiped. Flat screen sattelite TV's in both bedrooms and the living room, free wireless internet, washer and dryer, full kitchen, etc. Second bedroom has two beds, plus there is a pull out sofa. Staying here gives you free access to the numerous Marriott hotel faclities, including the pools, which are good for both adults and children. The pools are a short walk. It's very quiet back in the condo area, unlike the hotel, which can be crowded and noisy.

What makes this even better is that staying here is often cheaper than the hotel. For example, they had a stay three days, get two free with purchase of two adult, three day Disney passes. Parking and internet cost extra at the hotel, but are free at the condos. The condo itself worked out to $120 per night. The World Center property sits right outside the Disney gate, so it is feasible to come back for an hour or two to eat and rest before returning to Disney. There was no time share sales pitch while we were here. You should consider this property when visiting the area.

We spent a week at Sabal Palms and it was great! We have 2 toddlers (2 and 3 yrs old) and an infant (7 months) and they were all equip with cribs and high chairs. Our 2 room-apartment was spacious and lovely decorated. We had plenty of room for the double-stroller The masterbedroom with its own adjoining bathroom was amazing , the shower came out of every where (you can make a mess at first or wet your towel) and the room had direct access to the terrasse where we could enjoy the golf court and its wildlife.. turtles, alligators and all sorts of birds. They are lots of pool to chose from, that will accommodate even infants and the waterslide of the Marriott World Center is really fun, they had no problem to let ride my 3 yrs old, but I had to go first to catch him.
The only thing is, they have no options if it rains and thunders (they will close access to all pools and jacuzzi, even the indoor one. You're left with the t.v. and they won't unscramble the movie network). So hope for fair weather. And they have little options if you want food delivery.

This is a great place for my family, we loved it! Myself, my Husband and our 2 sons ages 5 and 8 stayed for 7 nights. We go away alot, we love to travel, and we love it here. This villa was about 2 miles out of Disney, our 2 bedroom villa was spotless nothing to complain about. The main hotel had a masssssive pool and about 5 other ones including the spa pool, that I loved. The villas also had a great pool that was also spotless, they also had jumbo checkers and chess that we all loved.
The golf course look great, but we were not here top play golf..I had to keep reminding my hubby.
The breakfast at the Marriott World was nice the buffet was endless, the sports bar was also good. But...the food court in the lower level was a little much for me (too many people sloping all over the place) The pool side bar-cafe looked liked a better choice. There was a shuttle bus to take you round trip back to the villas.
Would we go back..Yes! My kids ask us all the time.

This hotel was awesome. My family and I visited the week of June 26th - July 3rd. This was our 4th trip to the Disney area. For our first and second trips we rented a private home. Last year, for our third trip we stayed at the Springhill Suites @ Lake Buena Vista which was also nice - but much smaller. Marriott's Sabal Palms provided our best accommodations yet. Our room (4123) had been recently renovated and was absolutely beautiful. The pictures on Marriott's website do not do this property justice. It was well appointed, very clean, spacious and in extremely close proximity to the Disney parks. Everything you needed was provided for - the kitchen had all new appliances and was stocked with utensils, pots/pans, cups/mugs, dishes, paper towels, dish soap, automatic dish soap, (new) sponge and laundry soap (there is a full size washer and dryer), etc... The bathrooms were stocked with the basics - shampoo and plenty of towels. The master bedroom was huge with a king size bed, walk in shower and attached screened porch (also attached to the living room). The second bedroom had one full size bed, one twin and an attached full bathroom. This was perfect for our family of 5.
We received daily maid service - each night when we came back from the park our room was sparkling clean with fresh linens and nicely made bed. All the staff we encountered were very pleasant. You also have access to all the amenities @ Marriott's World Center, but between our time spent at the parks as well as the amenities we had right on the property @ Sabal Palms, we never made it up there. Sabal Palms has a nice (and not crowded) pool, a game room, fitness center, tennis courts, basket ball courts and sand volleyball. Equipment (for a small fee) and board games are available for rent @ the check-in desk. We did receive one call do to a timeshare tour, but they did not pester us when we indicated we would not be interested. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We have just come back from Marriotts Sabal Palms and had a wonderful time. Apartment was spacious and had everything you needed. Fabulous walk in shower, lovely and clean, plenty of towels and toiletries. Fantastic views of golf course and turtles in the river below our balcony. Staff were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. Brilliant location for visiting Disney and other orlando attractions. 4 minute drive to Downtown Disney, supermarkets 5 mins, seaworld 7 mins. Would definately recommend this hotel. You had use of the facilities for Marriott World Centre and Royal and imperial palms. Felt very safe and secure whilst on the property. Just about to book next years holiday there.

Recently renovated and very nice resort. clean with friendly staff even with the pressure to "go on a sales tour".
Not more than ten minutes to any of the attractions and yet feels secluded even in the middle of a large complex.
Furnishing were neat and clean. Living room furnishings not comfortable but was not there to sit around in the living room.
