As a note and stated in my introduction post, we did not stay at a full service hotel but rather a timeshare rental.

After we landed it took a bit to find out where we were supposed to pick up the car, but once we found the garage and picked out a car it went pretty smoothly and it took us about 5 minutes to leave.

After a 30 minute drive from the airport, we found the hotel complex which includes Marriott Royal Palms, Imperial Palms, Sabal Palms, and the Orlando World Center.  Once we got to the check in building, it took about 30 minutes for them to check us in.  The process was very slow because they apparently did not have the room ready even though it was past the check in time.  Once the long check in process was done, we went to the room to drop off our stuff before heading out.

Overall, the villa was very nice.  It was fairly spacious with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, a living room, and a porch.  The kitchen was stocked with many of the things you wood need to cook, but strangely had no salt or pepper.

There are more pictures of the rooms which you can find on the gallery page.  The resort had a very small gym, with maybe 8 machines, a tennis court, basketball hoops, and a volleyball net.  We were also able to go the the main Marriott hotel, the Orlando World Center, and check out the pool.  The Orlando World Center is the largest Marriott property in the world and the pool is also fairly large, sporting 3 water slides.

Overall the property was better than I had expected but there were some things that were a bit annoying.  There was no salt or pepper shaker, there was housekeeping only for a $30 daily fee, we were not able to get any extra towels or toiletries without a fee, and the some of the staff were a bit unhelpful and even rude.  If I had to do it again, I would probably prefer the convenience of a full service hotel over the flexibility of a timeshare.
