To my knowledge all of LWR has CDD's. Palmer Ranch is a similar type of community with no CDD's.

Heres the skinny on cdds in lakewood ranch.......the costs are not much and def worth it, also you pay them off eventually ....summerfield is the oldest development so most should be paid off in the next couple yrs...greenbrook fairly new, so longer time to pay off...10 yrs or less I believe...comes out to 100 bucks a month basically...well worth it for how nice everythings kept here..hoa, a whopping 200 bucks per YEAR...once your cdd is paid off all you have to pay is the 200 per year hoa...def worth it!

Also, PR has very high HOA fees, they are quarterly and about 400 (at least 1,600 per yr). LWR HOA in most of the communities are yearly at about $200 (except for certain parts of the Country Club section which are much higher). Also, in most of the real estate links, the LWR taxes already include the CDD fees.
I think it really depends on the type of community that you like, I've visited both on several occasions and prefer the feel of LWR. The kids and families were everywhere, out playing. I did not get the same vibe at all from Palmer.

Doesn't LR also have extremely restrictive covenants? I had read 2 different articles in the Herald Tribune about 1 homeowner re-painting his house a slightly different yellow than the yellow approved by the association/development & the neighbors were reporting him & the HOA was threatening a lawsuit. Recently, there is a woman going to court because the HOA has sued her for thousands of dollars in fees because she has 1 extra piece of lawn art than the allowed 3... I think LR has some beautiful homes but I'm not sure I could live in an area with such a HOA gestapo.

I'm really curious if it's as bad as it seems

I think you may be mistaken since all the communities in Palmer Ranch pay different HOA's depending on the amenities (as well as maintenance) in each community. I have a home in Village Walk, and I'm pretty sure my HOA's are not as high as my mother in laws home in Prestancia. Likewise, as low as the HOA's in Wellington Chase, or Huntington Point which have no pools etc. Oh, and also because the number you stated for all of PR is not what I pay in HOA's at VW.

Granted, the areas with no amenities will be lower, however, based on homes currently for sale in PR with community pools, I'm seeing high HOA's. ex
VW $888 qtrly for maintenance free
Turtle Rock 1,915 annual - not maintenance free
Hamptons $343 qtrly - not maintenance free

I don't want to argue which is better, just wanted to point out that the HOA's are much higher in PR than LWR in general for what you get.

No argument here at all as to which community is better, as I have not made any opinions in regard to which community is better.

I simply just want to point out every community in PR is different in regard to their HOA fees as your statement generalized them as if they all shared around the same fee:
