If you like coffee . . . . .
My husband and I spent 6 nites here in Mid-July. We were treated well and enjoyed our stay. The spacious rooms were very nicely decorated and clean. There were many amenities on site and even though the place is gated and a little off the beaten path, it was only about 10 minutes away from downtown Disney.
We left something when we checked out and called back. The staff was very helpful. Someone immediately checked our villa and even though it had been cleaned already our items were located and returned.We enjoyed it greatly. However, next time we know to bring our own coffee!
Stayed here five nights in July. Loved the place. Lots of room, huge bathroom, great location, and very well kept. Would stay again and highly recommend. We made it to the parking lots at WDW in less than ten minutes every morning.
Not so great
Upon arrival, our room smelled like an old ashtray- the old, stale smoke smell was overpowering. We made numerous complaints until finally, three hours later, they sent someone over to spray some freshener and place a de-ionizer in the room. Unfortunately, the stench did not go away. Also, the bathroom was missing two of the five vanity lights on the mirror. The food at the clubhouse restaurant (buffett only when we ate there) was very poor. I would argue that a high school cafeteria would give it a run for its money. We also tired of the voice-mail messages (a total of three in three days) touting the opening of the Pizza Hut.
Claiming to be a five-star resort is a gross overstatement. This place was no better than a Motel 6. I would recommend staying elsewhere.
Good Choice If You Need The Room
I recently returned from a short trip to Orlando. We stayed at the Wyndham Palms Resort and Country Club for two nights. Our two bedroom, two bath villa was very nicely decorated. It was 1,500 square feet. It had a full kitchen, washer and dryer, jacuzzi, screened-in balcony and 52 inch television. The resort was nice. We didn't use the pools or any or the amenities since we were only there for two nights.
This was my first time staying offsite at Disney World and I'm not sure I would do that again. I really like being in "Disney Proper". However, this place was very nice and it is a good choice for those who need the room and don't mind staying offsite.
Unbelieveably disappointing!!!! Extremely generic, our view was of a swamp from our balcony. The picture of this resort online is not even an accurate one. The pools are extremely small and I do mean extremely small!! They were also so far away from our villa that we had to drive there each time that we wanted to go swimming. They do have staff that drive around on golf carts to pick customers up to visit different areas of resort, but who wants to wait around in the heat for them to come pick you up. And according to their information packet given to you upon arrival the shuttles only run from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM and pick up in designated areas every 45 minutes to an hour. We were in a newly constructed 2 bedroom villa, but you would never have known it. The mirrored closet door kept coming off its track, the second bedrooms door knob was broke and the light fixture in the shower literally fell from the ceiling and broke in the shower stall, thank God no one was in the shower at the time. The walls were paper thin so we were kept awake a few nights due to noise from other guests. There was never enough parking for guests, when we complained about it staff told us to go ahead and park in the handicap section or illegally along side of a curbs. We stayed for 11 nights and we were not told about any of the complimentary services until we had been there already 9 days. The complimentary services consisted of a two liter bottle of pop upon check in, free continental breakfast, free miniature golf, basketball and ping pong. They do have organized childrens activities but once again no one told us about them until we had already been there 9 days. Their playground consists of one wooden swing set. They have two areas that have swimming pools, each one has two small pools and a small childrens area. The pool is only 5 feet deep. Their sales staff do not handle rejection very well. I spoke with three other families that all said that the staff were very rude to them when they said no to buying into their timeshare. They were very rude to us also, the time share seminar was only supposed to last 90 minutes. We were there for around three hours because they would not accept the answer no. The seminar was very high pressure! I could go on and on with my complaints about this facility but instead of this being a review it would be a book. Needless to say, I would not ever stay here again and I could not in all honesty ever recommend this resort to anyone, even to my worst enemies.
We were impressed
We had a two bedroom villa, each with it's own kitchen, baths & jacuzzi. We were mostly impressed by the size of the place and its decor. It did not have the feel of a hotel. The ceramic tiled floors layed on a diagonal made the place feel open, airy I luxiorious. The kids really liked the 52" t.v. in the living room. I was a little disappointed with their complementary coffee, but and their limited selection of videos, but besides that, I thought the place was great including the service. Since we really took this trip to do Disney World, we were unable to take advantage of all the amenities, except for the pool, this resort had to offer. If you don't plan on renting a car, you may regret it later. You don't really need one inside but you may want to visit other restaurants and shops outside this resort. The main strip (Rt 192, I believe) is less than two miles away. There you'll find the a great assortment of restaurants and shops.
Not that Great
Rooms themselves were outstanding, the Golf course was also great. The problem was transportation to and from the main offices, and dining area, which was insufficient. Resort spent too much time busing around possible timeshare buyers, and not enough time pampering the timeshare owners. Yes there was construction going on in the resort, but it should of had no effect on the rest of the resort. I won't be back anytime soon!!!!
Luxury, Luxury, Luxury!!!
The best place we've ever stayed at. Constant pampering and excellent service. Well worth it! :)
Luxury at Wyndham Palms
A great resort, and we have stayed at many in our 25+ years of tourist travel. The Wyndham Palms Resort and Country Club is a luxurious resort with many amenities to suit all ages. Plus a great 18 hole golf course. It is minutes in a car from all the major Orlando attractions.There are one, two and three bedroom villas to choose from, ours was a one bedroom, it was beautifully furnished and decorated. We had a huge TV and VCR in the living/dining room, a fully equipped kitchen and a private Jacuzzi. Our villa overlooked the golf course. The staff were friendly and helpful, in fact after we checked out, I remembered I had forgotten something. I called the resort, and was told the item would be mailed to me in a couple of days. I have since received it and cannot thank the staff enough for their cheerful help.If I had to find one fault, I would say that it was the fact that the bar/dining room in the country club and the pool side bar and grill closed at 9:00 pm. Wyndham Palms is well worth a visit, you will not be disappointed. My husband and I will certainly return again soon. Janet
Nestled on one of the back roads close to Disney World, and the other Disney attractions and resorts.
Upon entering this resort you have a sense your stay is going to be refreshing and relaxing.
From the lush green landscaping to the beautifully manicured greens on the golf course.
The beauty and serenity of these villas and its surrounding club houses and golf course will make you feel as though you have just been pampered and catered to.
The room are large and luxurious, tastefully decorated with a roman tub that will accomodate two. They have tv's in each room including a huge 52" in the three bedroom villa I occupied. Full size kitchen with all of the perks.
A wonderful time to be rembered by anyone who has the opportunity to take advantage of this resort.
You will want to return again and again.
Thank you Wyndham Palms for a fantastic resort.

Satisfied I had now had a proper American meal 'that is to say Tex-Mex' we drove out to the airport on the verge of a still jet-lagged sleep, and amidst a brilliant practical joke involving tricking our final party member into thinking we had a tiny rental car, made our way back to floridays and once again fell asleep immediately, we didn't do loads today, but it served as an excellent refresher.
