Our meeting at Mission Inn Resort was a solid success. Not only was the property beautiful, the staff attentive and the food impeccable, but the sheer excellence in serving your customers was flawless. We appreciated the passion to do the right things right and take care of all of our many details. I sincerely hope to plan another event at Mission Inn in the future.
We enjoyed our stay at Mission Inn very much. So nice to have a retreat from the hub but of Orlando high energy and traffic chaos. So nice to have a lanai overlooking the course. Room was generously sized and well appointed, tho a small refrig would have been nice and a couple more pieces of wall art would have made it more inviting and finished looking. Best bed and pillows we’ve ever slept on. Even though there were wedding guests in hotel when we came, we still found hotel very quiet throughout. Grounds are lovely.
We spent our wedding weekend at Mission Inn Resort for our two-day event! From our first visit, Jessica Lynn Castrejon helped create the vision for our dream wedding. Marina del Rey for our Hindu ceremony was her suggestion and it made for a picturesque backdrop for the festive bright colors. The path made for a grand entrance for my groom on his horse for the baraat. Everyone raved about the amazing Indian food at lunch! I love that the venue offers multiple sites so our guests were able to experience different settings for each part of our wedding. Our traditional ceremony on the second day was at Plaza de la Fontana as the sun started setting. It’s so beautiful we didn’t need much ceremony decor. Cocktail hour in the Plaza de las Palmas courtyard was a selling point for my husband. He loved the market lights and wrought iron tables. Our reception was at La Hacienda and it was a unique and perfect room to offer an intimate feel to a wedding of over 130 guests. With most guests coming from out of town, it was definitely a a huge plus that everyone could stay in the same place. We were able to enjoy the resort and our spend time with our guests all weekend. Most importantly, Jessica Maertchik was such a pleasure to work with through the entire process. She brought the vision of our dream wedding to life. With multiple events, she was attentive to detail and so responsive! We are so thankful to her and the entire team at Mission Inn for making the weekend so spectacular!
I enjoyed every aspect of my stay at Mission Inn Resort. The food, the room, the golf. All were absolutely top notch. The seafood buffet on Saturday night was as good as it gets, every thing was very good, especially the bread pudding for dessert. I highly recommend this as a golf destination or a get away destination.
I played this course way back when in the late 70’s the only thing I regret is that I took so long for me to book a stay and play package. It was so Great!!!! Every thing I could ever want in a trip.!!!!!
We spend two nights over Christmas as the Mission Inn. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The Christmas eve and Christmas day buffets were wonderful, the service impeccable and golf was outstanding. What a beautiful resort in a very quiet setting!
The golf courses were in excellent condition and many holes are beautiful and scenic. The food in the restaurant including breakfast and dinner was first class and the resort itself is very attractive with good service and very nice rooms.
Everywhere we looked there was something beautiful to see. The staff is extremely friendly and we loved the food. The architecture and furnishings are outstanding and the pool is excellent. If I played golf, I would have more to say about the beautiful course.
Just back from Mission in and wonderful golf and a stay. The weather was beautiful the staff is so friendly. The restaurants were wonderful. We like a Hot Hot Tub and it was! One of the most challenging courses in Florida. We are repeat customers who plan to continue to come back
This resort is perfect for families of all ages. There’s a variety of things you can do without even leaving the campus. They offer plenty of things to use like bikes or fishing poles, a game room, shuffle board, table tennis, or even golf clubs down at the clubhouse. The views are amazing and the service is excellent. In my two years of coming here, I have yet to have an issue!
We visit Mission Inn every couple of years. It has always been great, but the place was even better this year. The golf courses remain excellent. The rooms, restaurants, pool, etc. are also excellent. While we didn’t take advantage of them they now have a marina and a skeet range. Mount Dora is only 1/2 hour away if you want some diversity.
Both golf courses are enjoyable and offer a challenge in a fair way. Rooms are very nice, spacious, clean and attractively decorated. Restaurants are comfortable with attractive decor and delicious food. The grouper was excellent.
Our review might look biased, but is totally true, reliable and sincere. We live in Las Colinas, which is part of Mission Inn. We did not had power in our house after hurricane Irma for 6 days so we decided to stay in the hotel for 4 nights. It was a very comfortable stay and we could appreciate the great staff the hotel has and the many renovations they have made. We stayed in a mini suite and we understand they are different than the rest of the rooms. If you are looking for a beautiful quiet place, Mission Inn is the place. And if you are a golfer there are not better courses in Central Florida than El Campeon and Las Colinas. And believe my word as I am a member of the golf club and play in both courses an average of four days a week. Mission Inn is a unique place in Central Florida outside of the crowds in Orlando.
My golf group of approximately 50 women has been coming to the Mission Inn for years. We love it ! The golf courses are challenging and exquisitely maintained. Our rooms have always been comfortable and clean and the icing on the cake is the restaurant with a lovely buffet and dessert bar ! Employees are pleasant and helpful and the grounds are beautiful.
I stayed one night. The property is beautiful. The rooms accommodating, the bed sleeps like a dream. There are many activities available. My group used the basketball area. I would return to enjoy the atmosphere.
We just spent 2 days at Mission Inn for a golf outing with friends. The newly renovated rooms were spotless and nicely appointed. The 2 golf courses were in great shape. Everyone we interacted with from the reception desk, housekeeping, waitresses, Pro Shop, golf starters, beverage cart drivers and golf cart helpers were friendly and professional. We will be back.
Was visiting relatives in the area and found Mission Inn Resort. It is about 30 minutes from Orlando in Howey in the Hills. It is a fabulous hotel. The grounds are beautiful. The architecture is Spanish. Our visit was during a very cold spell so the hotel was empty (we loved it). I had a first floor room which had a small screened-in patio that overlooked the golf course. The decor is Spanish colonial. In addition to the golf course there is a spa, pool and other amenities one finds at a luxury resort. The food was delicious and healthy. Staff were friendly and helpful. Price was extremely reasonable .
We come here frequently and have never been disappointed. Tthe rooms are always clean and quite so you get a good night’s sleep. The staff can’t seem to do enough for you. The food is also very good. Can’t wait to go back.
Our group has been using the Mission Inn to hold our reunions every year for the past 6 and have booked for the next 2! The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Breakfast buffet is wonderful—and they make fresh waffles, eggs, omelets etc. Service is always excellent. The rooms are clean and kept updated with new beds and linens. Pool is beautiful with a nice Tiki bar outside. Not a golfer, but they have a beautiful course. I love the way you are welcomed and that all the staff always greet you, even walking down a hallway and offer to help with any need you may have.
This beautiful resort has outstanding service and a professional team who make your visit extremely comfortable. I was there for a business event, and was wowed by the customer service, the beautiful and comfortable room, and the gorgeous grounds. The meeting facilities were perfect for our needs, the catered meals were delicious with plenty of options to choose from, and the staff was always ready to assist. Beautiful, and I would definitely go back for a golf and relaxing getaway!
My wife and I were there for a wedding and really enjoyed the stay there. Staff was excellent at all the restaurants and places we went to. Excellent Spa. The grounds were very beautiful and well maintained. I would go back.
Difficult and excellent golf. 3 courses to choose from. They are sure to challenge every aspect of your game. Restaurants are all excellent and decently priced. Rooms are remodeled and beds are comfy. I have been here more then 7 times and will continue that trend.
Absolutely loved this place!! We had a great room on the fourth floor with terrific views of the golf course. Scott at the front desk was extremely accommodating as we had arrived early for my son’s practice round and check in was not until 4 pm. Not only did we get an earlier check in but we also got an upgraded room!! The room was spacious and clean with very comfortable beds. Would definitely recommend this resort as well as the golf course.
Beautiful stay though short but will definitely go backk for a longer stay . Hospitality and professional ways of all staff . Very clean . Front Desk , Connie very professional and helpful time of check in . Recommended by a family memenber . Beautiful place to get away from the business . Five Star indeed
We were going to a party nearby and decided at the last minute to get a room. Beautiful resort with golf course, tennis courts, spa, bikes, pool and several restaurants. Our room overlooked the pool and golf course with a screened balcony to enjoy the view. It is off season so we nearly had the place to ourselves. The room was nicely appointed with a comfortable king bed and elegant bathroom with nice toiletries and 6 sets of towels. Breakfast was a la carte or a tasty buffet with made to order omelette. Other restaurants we have enjoyed on previous visits. Staff was friendly. Totally perfect mini vacation. Hidden treasure not to be missed.
