The Gaylord Palms Resort Reviews


What a lovely place to visit any time of the year, says the majority of guests who go to the Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando. The Atrium with areas themed for St. Augustine, Key West and the Everglades were amazing for us but the kids were truly fascinated. What a water park. With the expansion and having 7 large water slides as well as a kids splash park, there were times they didn't want to leave and even go to Disney. It is quite incredible how large this resort is and the number of restaurants makes it possible to dine here the whole time.


Some of the guests talked about how incredible the public areas were but were not quite as impressed with their rooms. A few mentioned that they felt the rooms could use some updating for the price that was paid. It is really large, while most feel that this is what makes it such a fantastic resort, it was a little difficult to get around because it was so large in some guests opinions. Others felt the customer service was not up to what they were expecting.

Water Park Fun

The property is a beautiful sight to behold, and you will want to take the time needed to soak it all in. This being said, even though this property is a great place to hold business meetings and conferences, they did not leave any family fun water amenities out at all. For your family’s enjoyment, you first want to check out the Cypress Springs Family Fun Water Park. Sporting a play area built for the kids in mind, they will enjoy a splashing good time as they slide down one of the four twisting Water Slides, enjoy the easy access of a Zero-entry Swimming Pool and many other fun water soaking features. If you are looking to get away from some of the excitement and relax for a while, you will want to head over to the South Beach Pool. This pool is typically a more quiet place to have a drink while reading or just relaxing by the pool. If you would like more information on any of the water fun at this resort, head on over to our Pool Information Page where you will find detailed information on all of the pools, hours of operation and pictures.
