Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes
Travel Blogs from Orlando
We were picked up at home in Isleworth by a driver from Mears Transportation and arrived at The Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes at about 2:30PM. We checked in at the hotel and quickly the very personable and responsive TCS staff, especially our friend, Eric, who was so helpful throughout the process, greeted us warmly and went over the full particulars …
... and think why or how are you here?! Yep I am real and yep I'm doing it the local way! I achieved things I never thought possible and pushed my body I the limit, going on 200 mile bike rides cause I felt like it and attempting to climb to 17000 feet in a pair of wellies! I got lost up volcanoes, abducted by Mexicans (and nearly by some Hondurans) discovered my own Caribbean Island and then got caught in a giant rainstorm and had to be towed in freezing my balls off, I also got ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes
Wonderful hotel, A must stay!!
I am extremely impressed by the Ritz Grande Lakes! I've stayed in hotels all over the world and this is one, if not THE best of all. I cannot understand how anyone who has any common sense could give this hotel a bad review like the one listed. This person obviously has never stayed in a first class hotel by the statements he/she made. Its been my experience the people who are "new" to first class luxury are the biggest complainers/whiners, and those of us who are used to upper end accomodations and service know first class service when we experience it. And the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes is FIRST CLASS, ALL THE WAY! ps. I would advise the person who wrote the bad review to return to the Days Inn, where they obviously belong.
The spa rocks!!!
The Ritz Spa in Orlando is wonderful. From the moment I walked in the spa I was greeted by Amy. Amy informed me of the treatment I was going to have and then escorted me to the second floor of the spa to begin my experience. Iris, showed me around the ladies spa and offered me fresh fruit and tea. My treatment began with Greg, picking me up from the 2nd floor and taking me up to the 3rd floor of the spa. Greg was my therapist. I was on cloud nine!! After the treatment I enjoyed the sauna and steam room. On my way out of the spa, Amy remembered my name and took care of my bill. The hotel was wonderful as well, but it was the spa that was spectatular!!
We knew we were in for a treat when we drove up and saw how exquisite the Ritz entrance is. The golf course is fabulous. The Ritz provides you with a "fore caddy" or "concierge caddy" who introduces you to each hole, telling you where to hit and what trouble lies ahead. Can't help your swing but if you have a friendly caddy like we did, it can make your day. Hole #11 has a fairway split by a large oak tree ? you have to see it to believe it. The concierge level is the only way to stay at this gorgeous hotel. Every food spread they put out for breakfast, lunch and dinner made you realize you did not need to go out to eat anywhere else. We almost cancelled out dinner plans at Normans (the Ritz's premiere restaurant), but we found room in our bellies even after eating crab claws, scallop salad, 10 different cheeses, bean and beef cilantro dip, tuna tartar, seaweed salad and two very strong Grey Goose Cosmopolitans - Thanks Dane! The staff is fabulous also! Great trip and we will be back - Highly recommended!"
Great Club Floor
Place is great alternative to staying in parks, plenty of dining, great pools, excellent golf course. The best part of the hotel is the club floor, probably the best ritz club floor in the world, and we have stayed on plenty of them.
Area has lots of room with enough tables for everyone to eat at as well as some outside overlooking lake and golf course. Food presentations are awesome, lunch was unreal and desserts change each night. Definetly worth the extra charges saved on bfast and snacks and drinks.
Wow, I think that sums up the property, the service and the atmosphere.
Fabulous brand new resort
Stayed for 2 days for a meeting. The rooms were very well equipped with luxerious beds and spacious bathrooms. The pool area was beautiful with a nice lakeside view, The Marriott is next door but is quite a distance away. The food was excellent and the health club was one of the the nicest I've seen at a hotel.
I was shocked to see an unfavorable rating on this site. I stayed for a week and have never felt more pampered. The staff were incredibly helpful, they went out of their way to anticipate your needs, the place was spotless. If you stay here and don't like it, you are one hell of a snob and should learn to appreciate real quality instead of looking down your nose for all the little bad things in life.This place is fabulous!!
Stay on a club floor for food and drinks all day long!! Great idea for adults looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Disney.
BEAUTIFUL LOBBY area with nice lounge and live music at night. Hotel is clean. Service is great. The fish dinner at the "Vine" restaurant was delicious- one of the best dinners that I've had. Great outdoor pool on beautiful golf course grounds- open air lunch place with live steal-drum music. Spa and workout area is enormous with all up to date equipment. Go now while the rates are still low! This place is a gem.
Bravo, to the Newest Ritz-Carlton!
We have been here a week and have enjoyed our stay at this beautiful and elegant new Ritz so much. We had a room with a spectacular view of the pool, golf course and the evening fireworks from the parks. As for food, breakfast is great, but dinner can improve. Service with a smile seems to be the motto here. We felt the service was great considering they have been opened for only one month. The staff from doormen to servers and receptionists have reflected the excellent training they've had. We have stayed at Ritz hotels in Kapalua, San Francisco, Las Vegas and this new Ritz baby at Orlando Grande Lakes compares favorably and will no doubt receive its six diamond rating soon!
