“Knockout!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2011

Marriott has certainly done its homework when it comes to hotel and timeshare venues. We exchanged into this property for week in August. Had to drag reluctant-to-leave wife away from unit at end of week. First impressions are favourable re location, settings and surroundings - and then it just gets better. Our unit was spacious, well-equipped and clean. Comfortable lounge and full kitchen were appreciated - also, no problem in sleeping. Didn't use the swimming pool as regularly as we should have done - careless. World Centre has larger pool, but much noisier, if you get my drift. Splendid view over golf course and sunsets from veranda. Very, very impressed - I, too, was reluctant to leave. Definitely raises the bar.

If you would like a clean quiet place to stay this is it. It is one of four hotels on the property. It is a typical Marriott Timeshare. The staff is friendly and capable. The rooms stay clean and the property is immaculate. There are some activities on grounds, but these are more of a rainy day affair, or when you don't want to do anything theme park. It is very Disney located. The front drive enters on to 536 which is the main entrance into Disney. Grocery stores are almost right around the corner, but not in walking distance. The pools are large and well-kept. You are allowed to use any of the property pools, but one is as good as another. There is a small store on grounds, but way too expensive and too little variety.

If you want to shop for food and essentials, there is a Walmart within 5 minutes. There are plenty of national chain restaurants within a few minutes and two outlet malls.

I always enjoy staying at a Marriott timeshare. You always get what you pay for, clean comfortable and centrally located.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the golf course

Can't say enough about this special villa hotel-Friendly check in--Villas were spacious, spotless, and perfect for family. The master bedroom is huge and features a very large jacuzzi. The guest bedroom has an extra twin bed that doubles as a sitting area. Neat layout--featuring angles and mirrors in living and dining area. Kitchen is modern with beautiful tiled flooring and tile wall area. Everything you could possibly need for the perfect vacation. Marriott has once more proven to know what the discriminating traveler wants in a vacation. A great weekend get away!! Would love to stay weeks at this resort.
We were located on the golf course. Beautifully landscaped areas to include a serenity area, as well as an herb garden. When we arrived, other guests were enjoying the grills on the property-
Even though it was a holiday weekend, there was no noise within the resort property.

Upon entering the grounds for the Marriott which has a few different places there in which you can stay I was sold. Everything was neat and clean in the villa that we stayed in and felt just like home. The unit had every starter supply you would need in a vacation home. Everything in the room was updated from the kitchen, bathrooms, everything was just comfortable like home. Well worth the $. Only downside is if you can't walk far to get to the front desk to get to the World Center you are out of luck, but the shuttle comes for you upon request which is usually less than five minutes. The World Center boasts a huge water slide. As I venture around the grounds I will provide more info about this resort...

Myself, husband and 2 teenage girls spent 7 days here and absolutely loved it! The room was large with a great screened patio area, areas to hang together, or separate, and was very clean and all appliances were in working order. We loved how close it was to all of the attractions! One word of advise that was given to us - ask for a room that faces the golf course - that was so beautiful and peaceful! The buses to and from the Marriott World center ran often - and were called in a timely fashion to get us back and forth. Our only complaint was that the game room for the kids could have been a little larger, with more games. Still, we all enjoyed the pool and the grounds! Lastly, every single person there was friendly, helpful and fun! Very, very nice vacation for my family!!

This resort is in a great location minutes from Disney World. It was nice enough, but below typical Marriott resort standards. Royal Palms is no better than average quality.

Room Tip: Ask for a building that is not next to the highway bordering one side of the complex.
