The Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes is one of only 3 of the 5 Star Hotels located in the Orlando area. We only feature 2 of these properties because one of them does not meet the criteria for our Water Fun Related hotels. If you are looking for some of the finest Resorts in this area, this is one that you should consider. One of the nice features of the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes, is that fact that it shares amenities with the neighboring JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes. This magnificent hotel is located on the Grande Lakes with the most spectacular furnishings available. You will find that the staff is so well trained to meet your every desire, you will not want to leave when your trip is done. Everywhere you look you see an attention to elegance and the highest level of quality. As you enter the main lobby, you immediately see the difference. Impressive decor with striking designs from the best furniture available to the marble floors and exquisite lighting fixtures. If you are looking for the best, this could be the right location for you.

Ritz-Carlton Orlando Accommodations

How many times have you walked into a hotel or resort and are so impressed with the lobby that you are extremely excited to see the accommodations you will be staying in, only to be completely let down? It seems like most properties spend all of their time, money and effort in making a great first impression and don’t care what you see when you leave the lobby. That will NOT be a concern when you stay at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando Florida. The rooms are as elegant and inviting as the impression you have of this resort when walking through the front door. That is one reason that this is truly a 5-star hotel. When booking your reservation, you will quickly find that one of the hardest decisions to make is the type of room you want to stay in. There are many different options when selecting your accommodations from the 582 stylish Standard Guest Rooms with 60 Executive Suites, a Royal Suite that supports up to 4 Bedrooms and is fit for a King (or Queen). If you so desire, you also have the option of staying in 1 of the 2 Presidential Suites that are on site. This can make for a difficult decision but take a little time to decide so you are sure that the room you select is perfect for you vacation. One more thing to consider when making your decision is the ability to book one of the 56 Club Level Rooms. All of the information you need for each room type is displayed in detail in the Amenities section.

Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes Reviews


The Positive reviews at the Ritz-Carlton are almost overwhelming with glowing responses of the staff, the luxury of the rooms and the beauty of the grounds. The pools are amazing and our kids loved the ability to head over to the JW Marriott and spend time at the large Lazy River. The food is the best you will find anywhere.

Pools and Lazy River Access at the JW

When the kids first see this place they will think there is absolutely nothing fun to do and they will be looking forward to getting on one of the shuttles and heading off to one of the nearby Theme Parks. What they don’t know is that this resort, being a neighbor to the JW Marriott, gives them so many fun things to do that they will have a hard time leaving and going anywhere else. The Ritz-Carlton Orlando Swimming Pool is a beautiful, quiet location with many Cabanas to pamper its guests. The kids will be more interested in what they see on the other side of the Resort and that is the Large Swimming Pool with a really wide and long Lazy River complete with Waterfalls to keep everyone cool during the day. As soon as they know this is available to them, you will have lost them for the remainder of the trip. For full Swimming Pool and Water Fun Information please take a look at the Pool Information Page.
