"Hilton Grand Vacations Promo package"
We stayed at this hotel when we had purchased a promotional package to hear about the Hilton Grand Vacations Club. We had to sit through a two hour sales pitch where they tried to get us to purchase a membership. In return, we received three nights at this resort. Contrary to many reviews we read ahead of time online, the presentation wasn't that bad. We were treated respectfully and it did not go more than a few minutes beyond the two hours. When we refused to buy the membership after three people tried to get us to do so, they let us check out and received our $200 gift certificate for a Hilton property as promised. Now, onto the property...it was beautiful. We had a one bedroom unit which faced the Disney properties so we could see the fireworks at night. The unit was spacious and well equipped; toaster, coffee maker, silverware, plates, etc. one thing that was missing was coffee filters, but we went to the Marketplace on site and bought some. Since we were staying as part of the promo package, there was no maid service offered while we were there. This was a bit of a drag but manageable. The pools are gorgeous, and there are activities and contests for the kids at the larger pool. We enjoyed the relative quiet of the smaller pool. The pool towels were a bit threadbare and small, but there were plenty of them. We had lunch poolside one day, fish tacos, and they were fabulous. All in all, a positive weekend. If I were ever to come back to Orlando, I would consider this Resort.
Parc Soleil lived up to all our expectations when we stayed there for four days. We enjoyed the helpful staff and the beautifully decorated room. The Soleil cafe had a variety on the menu and was great for the times we were at the resort. The pool is laid out nicely and is inviting.
"Great Place With a Few Caveats"
The short: Wonderful place with great rooms, awesome pool, good little deli that serves Starbucks and some delicious pastries, some fabulous staff members, and a convenient middle-of-the-road location between the main Orlando attractions. This is a timeshare property, so don't expect traditional amenities like daily housekeeping, but you will get a washer/dryer and kitchen/ette in exchange. Ask the front desk to block the sales phone calls when you check-in. The long version with additional fore-warnings: We spend an awful lot of time in Orlando (over two months in the last year) and almost all of it is happily spent at this Hilton timeshare. The rooms are cozy and spacious, the pool is lovely, the food is edible, and 98% of the resort staff are wonderful. I would totally recommend that anyone stays here, with the following things in mind: 1. There should be enough parking spaces in the garages, but there are not because the hotel does not enforce proper parking such as making oversize vehicles park outside, not allowing people to park in the turn-around zone, and handling those lovely folks that like to take up two parking spaces. Just be aware that if you get back late, you may struggle to find a space. 2. DO NOT attempt to check in any earlier than 3:45pm (check-in is technically at 4:00pm). The front desk attendants during the early afternoon tend to be the worst ones they have / the type of employee who really just views it as a job and does not care about you or your stay or the impression that they give regarding the resort. Seriously, you will go from being happy and excited to being miserable, angry, and annoyed just from dealing with them. Around 3:30pm, the best of the best suddenly appear and you will have a great experience. 3. Tell the front desk during check-in that you do not wish to be disturbed so that they can block the annoying sales phone calls. Otherwise, even though you told them no when they harassed you while you waited for them to hand you your parking pass, they will notate that you were "unsure" and continue to hound you daily beginning at 8-8:30am. This does not stop. It does not matter how many times you say no. It doesn't even matter if you ask not to be called before 10:00am. They don't seem to understand that the harassment makes you even less likely to attend their stupid owner's update. So do yourself a favor and let the front desk know so that they can block the calls. 4. When those lovely sales people call to "check in to see how you are doing and if there is anything they can get for you" at 8:00am, you will believe it is the resort staff and not the sales staff at first because they will be sneaky about it. So you may think you can just request that extra towel or laundry detergent from them instead of calling down to the front desk/guest services. Don't. Seriously, don't tell them what you need. They will pretend to care and say that they will have whatever you need sent right up, but in reality, they will never deliver the message to anyone. Instead, you will find yourself sitting there waiting for housekeeping to arrive with your items, give in 2 hours later to go about your day that you just reshuffled, then arrive back later that night to find that item still has not been delivered. All because the sales staff really just don't care unless you are buying so that they get their commission, thus they never even told housekeeping that you needed something. Just call the front desk/guest services. 5. Don't get roped into the sales presentation / owner's update unless you genuinely are interested in buying/upgrading or are willing to spend hours there. They say it is only 60 minutes, but we have never experienced anything less than 2 hours and they have NEVER once started on time. Actually, they blatantly disrespect your valuable vacation time with some of their practices. That "free breakfast" is nothing to get excited over unless you like bagels. The "discounted tickets" or $100 gift card is always the same offer...they won't up the offer even if you have upgraded twice within a year. Frankly, $100 really doesn't buy two plus hours of our time, in my opinion. 6. Plan accordingly if you have to be out early to get to reservations at the park, or airport, etc. The deli does not open until 7am for some reason (a 630am opening would be a bit more reasonable), so unless you make your own coffee/breakfast upstairs you are out of luck and will have to either leave early or wait until you are in the park/at the airport/etc. With all that I have written, you may be asking yourself "Does she really like this place'" Yes, yes I do. Love it, in fact, and am disappointed when we are unable to get a room (which is happening during our upcoming trip). Really, this is a fabulous place to stay, especially if you want to be able to escape some of the hustle and bustle of touristy Orlando. Just be forewarned about these things, and you will be thrilled with this resort. P.S. It is a timeshare, so do not expect daily housekeeping, but just ask the front desk if you need anything. Be sure it is the resort staff and not the sales staff when you request items or you will be disappointed. Seriously, just avoid the sales staff.
"Enjoyed my stay"
This place is worth the visit. Excellent location away from the crowd but still close enough for just a short drive to everything you want to see. Staff was very friendly and helpful. You could stay for days and never have to leave for any reason.
