“Female liked Arnie's place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

Excellent stay. Quiet with beautiful views of the fairways. Staff was very helpful and friendly. I was a solo, female, traveler who felt quite at home there. All the bathroom lotions, etc. smelled like men's aftershave. Not exactly what a woman wants. But they were plentiful.
I'd definitely return.
Oh, and the pictures of Arnie gracing the walls are a nice touch, if not overwhelming at times. ;)

My buddy and I stayed in one of the cottages which was close to the main lodge. It was very well appointed with two separate bedrooms, no snoring issues The course was in great condition as they were prepping for the AP invitational. The forecaddie was good company and the speed of play very good. All the staff we spoke to were very friendly. All in all this was a great experience.

I have been to Many golf resorts. Without a doubt this has been the most unforgetable. I was actually overwhelmed with the feeling of being a preferred member of a happy family. Found the food, quality and services to be far miles ahead of other "Top Golf Resorts". Even the workers on the course -of which keep a wonderful property at a rate of perfection- made me feel really at home.
While my wife and I were there for the golf, which I found the recommended tees to be "Right on", we enjoyed seeing other younger families staying there while visiting Mickey's Disneyworld which is right aroung the corner.
The staff seemed to go out of the way even for the "little visitors".

Overall we had a nice stay and Mr. Palmer is very gracious. The unfortunate part was quite disturbing - the head of maintenance walked into our room unannounced and with no knock and said he was told that our room "might" be unoccupied. Maybe it's best to keep your clothes on and the door lock on. GM never responded to my complaint, so I assume he doesn't care.

Stayed one night to have access to play the world famous course. Staff was freindly, room was updated and very nice, pool was warm on a cool December day and the golf incredable. Enjoyed a breakfast and a lunch in the country club like atmosphere which was resonable in price and very tasty.Yes I did see the man himself and got a very memorable photo with him.

We stayed in the Bayhill Lodge and just loved it. The pool and spa were lovely. We did aqua aerobics aswell which was a lot of fun. The food was great and they prepared it exactly the way we wanted it. It was also v reasonably priced so we ate most of our meals there. The golf course was fabulous and the views from our room across the range and putting greens was a real treat. We saw the great Arnold Palmer practice on the range which was amazing to see and met him at our meals. It was a wonderful trip and close to Disney aswell. V nice and peaceful for Couples and mad keen Golfers. Staff were incredible and its obvious to see, they love working there. Will definitely be back.

last stop off on Holiday break after disney - bit of my time!
Staff make you feel like a long term member, not to stuffy except have to wear collar shirt for breakfast not a big hardship, breakfast was superb and such good value.
Golf was on expensive side but it is bayhill - right?
Arnold not about, comes back after Nov according to staff and likes nothing better to speak to as many as possible, I'm even more of a fan now knowing how much he's loved by all the staff.
I'd go back in a heartbeat
