This resort is a bit more quiet and affordable than others in the area
Some say standard accommodations here feel a bit outdated
You don't need to putt on Grand Cypress' coveted greens to indulge in some quality golfing in Orlando. Satisfied travelers would just as well recommend Arnold Palmer's Bay Hill Club & Lodge. This resort's 27 holes should entertain most golfers. And the service is first-rate, from inside the lodge to around the spa and fitness center – and of course at the clubhouse as well. Some previous guests do say that staying at Arnold Palmer's felt a little like being trapped in a time capsule; you'll see outdated furnishings and somewhat conventional fabrics in some of the 70 lodge rooms. Even the 27-inch flat screens don't push the accommodations into the 21st century. On the bright side, this resort in southwest Orlando is nearly always reasonably priced, and you'll be close to one of the city's top parks – Universal's Islands of Adventure, which features the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Recent lodgers also note that Arnold Palmer's Bay Hill Club & Lodge offers a quiet and well-priced respite from the ritzy theme park resorts.
