Grand statement in Central Florida with five restaurants, a lazy river and a Greg Norman-designed golf course

The Lowdown

Guests of the JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes benefit from the best case of keeping up with the Joneses. You see, this JW lives in symbiosis with the Ritz-Carlton next door, sharing spas and the Greg Norman-designed golf course. The JW splashes out in Spanish revival style in 998 guestrooms and 64 suites, which all come with spectacular lake or golf course views. Though it caters to the convention crowd (there’s more than 100,000 square feet of meeting space if that’s your thing), the resort is extremely family friendly with a lazy river pool complex, an arcade room and kids programming. Five eateries and a Starbucks keep you fueled; the best of the bunch is organic Italian Primo, one of Orlando’s top tables.

In the Area

One of the primary reasons for being in Orlando is having fun in its theme parks, and the resort obliges with free transportation to and from Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando and SeaWorld. One of the benefits of being connected to the Ritz-Carlton is that you double your fine dining options. Don’t miss NORMAN’S featuring celeb Chef Norman Van Aken’s acclaimed New World Cuisine fusing Latin, Caribbean and Asian flavors with European techniques.

Hotel discovered in 2011, now back in 2019...always leaves us speachless...most beautiful place ever seen...
Great location. Spacious rooms. Delicious breakfast. Lazy River simply wonderful!
Hotel elegantissimo, in un contesto naturale di eccezionale bellezza. Punto di forza è sicuramente la piscina Lazy River, aperta fino a sera.

Breakfast Buffet

Awesome! Good food and great service. Our server was great. He was informative and very engaging.

Long time since our last visit almost ten years ago but seems like just yesterday.

Pastries, omelettes, pancakes and great coffee! Who could ask for more.

Super nice hotel....

As with most JW Marriotts this hotel is excellent and the grounds are amazing. The lobby is beautiful. It’s a very strong four star in my book. We love it here. The location is very nicely located close to all the stores, Disney World and Universal Studios.
