I am looking at booking Orlando next year for a friend. Which resort has the most facilities ?? Such as large or multiple pools, on site restaurants or something very close, easy drive to attractions. Good for teenagers
I think any of the Palms resorts might work nicely....with Sabal Palms being the closest to the expanded facilities that you seek. Sabal itself is small and has its own small pool, but it has very close proximity to the Marriott Orlando World Center, which has multiple pools, a water slide tower (may be a $10 per villa per day charge when you use that), and multiple restaurants (and even a food court) all on site. The World Center is a very short walk from Sabal Palms. And you can't beat the location if close to the Disney parks is what you are after.
There are other MVC resorts that are larger and more self contained, but because of the proximity to the World Center and ability to use its facilities, Sabal popped into my mind.
Grande Vista has multiple pools, beach volleyball, boat rentals, and sits off International Drive giving you access to the trolley and all the food and fun International Drive offers.
Lakeshore Reserve has a lazy river, 2 water slides, and access to the adjacent J.W. Marriott (which has what I consider the best overall pool complex/lazy river in Orlando) as well as a high ropes course.
I have also heard good things about the teen center at Cypress Harbor (but won't know for sure until we go there next month for Thanksgiving week).
The good news is there are plenty of good choices to pick from. The bad news is you have plenty of good choices to pick from.
