“Excellent Stay - we'll be back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2009

This is a beautiful property. We usually stay at the HGVC on International Drive (Tuscany), but chose this property just to check it out.. While it is beautiful and very modern, there are a few drawbacks. There is no deli/convenience store at this property. We were told it will open in Feb. of 2010. There is not an outdoor bar. You have to go into the restaurant to order a drink or snack for poolside....at the other properties, there is an outdoor bar with several flat screen televisions and you don't feel like you're going into the restaurant area to order. There is only one bldg open right now, so plenty of chairs and room at the pool. I've read other reviews about how "secluded" this property is. Initially, it did seem to be in the middle of nowhere, but it is only about 2 miles to a Walmart or Publix grocery store - and close to a variety of restaurants. Not far to the Premium Outlet mall which is the best! You'll need to make a stop at the store before your arrival to pick up a few things for your room, but overall the place is great! We ate breakfast one morning poolside and the food was great. We also had a burger at the pool one afternoon which was good as well. Even though it's new, there are activities going on every day; blackjack tournament, movies by the pool, build a bear, etc... I don't think you'll be disappointed! About 2 mi. to Sea World and Discovery Cove. We heard it was about 10 minutes to Disney, but we did not go to the park on this trip. Great little water slide into the pool - kids will love it.. While we do own at HGVC at Sea World, we have no affiliation w/this property.

I have absolutely no complaints about this great property. We had several units here for a small family reunion over a long weekend. My son, an HGVC owner in Colorado and Hilton Diamond member suggested the resort.

Our group included 7 kids from 3-11 years old, one infant and 10 adults. All of us had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the property.

The units are very clean, well-appointed and comfortable. Kitchens are well-equipped. The furniture is all upscale – everything -- from the patio table to the flat panel TVs. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms huge. Some of the kids slept on the pull out sofas, which were also comfortable.

We found the entire staff friendly and very accommodating. We had requested rooms close together and we were all within steps of each other. The pool area is beautiful and the kids had a great time swimming and playing with their cousins.

The location was great. There is a back road that takes you right to a small plaza with a grocery store. It was nice being far enough off the Interstate that you didn’t hear any traffic. It’s also close to the Sea World and Disney Parks. The parking garage kept the car cool and loading/unloading was very easy.

Most of our group ate lunch by the pool at least one day and breakfast inside the restaurant another. The bar was also a nice gathering place to grab a beer and visit. The food and service good, prices reasonable.

I think anyone who would complain about this place wouldn’t be happy anywhere.

We're HGVC owners and have stayed at the other 2 properties in Orlando. Parc Soleil is a little different, but really very lovely and well thought out. The property is enormous and they are still adding many more things. the location is close to Universal and SeaWorld, as well as the highway. Only a few minutes to a Super Walmart to pick up anything you need. There are 2 large pools, one with a water slide. There are many hot tubs, and when we were there, it was not crowded at all. At night they inflate this giant screen and showed a movie one night, and played wii on another. The kids love it. I would have loved to see the activity room completed, but it's fine.

The only thing I couldn't understand was that the BBQ grills are charcoaled whereas at every other one I stayed at, they were gas grill. Didn't matter, we didn't grill this time around.

Nothing bad to say about it, and would definitely stay here again.

First off, I have to say, that my overall experience at this hotel was absolutely wonderful. Positively the "tops" in own opinion. This place is brand new, so the rooms, grounds, pool is in tip-top shape.

Second, check in was nice and easy. The guard gate was courteous and friendly, and directed us where to go to proceed with check in. The bell men and front desk staff knew us by name as soon as we stepped in the door, I don't know how, but that was amazing!! All in all, the staff was very personable and accommodating to my family, I can't recall a hotel where we were treated like such VIP's!!

Third, the rooms are just absolutely impressive. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite, which in all honesty isn't a normal room; in fact, these rooms are more like condos! They have a full kitchen, washer & dryer, separate living area, huge bathroom, and luxurious bedroom.

I still can't believe for the price, the quality of room you get. I think these rooms should be going for around $250/night - when we paid only $126/night. I think you will be hard pressed to find such an upscale hotel as this in Orlando at any better rate.

Lastly, I'll quickly touch on the pool and restaurant. The beach/pool area is great for the kids. The hotel puts on daily activities for children (and the adults too), which keeps them occupied if your just hanging around and not out at the parks. The slide is just like any you'd find at a water park, and there are separate pools for kids and older adults. The pool side restaurant is just as good as any in the Orlando area, and service lives up the Hilton name.

I really don't see why anyone wouldn't give this place 5 out of 5 stars, because it just doesn’t deserve less than that.

My wife and I spent our wedding night here. My wife (then my fiance) had called the hotel earlier and had asked for an earlier check-in and they had said that they will let us do that. The check-in was easy and the front desk staff were very nice to us. We got a very nice room with a beautiful view of the pool from the patio. The bed was very nice and the bathroom was good. Unfortunately we got a handicapped room but we didnt mind it too much. The staff from the front desk sent us a signed card congratulating us and some sweet treats.

In the night, there was a movie in a big screen next to the pool. It was very cold (by Florida standards) and so we tried to enjoy it under the covers from the patio but it didnt quite work out.

We ate at the Chevy's Mexican restaurant a couple of miles away and it was very close to I-4. All in all we loved this hotel and the staff and would definitely stay there again.

Check In was efficient. Parking is convenient. Rooms are gorgeous and very comfy. What we did not like was the banging on the door BEFORE the 10am posted check out time asking when we were planning on leaving!! At least let us have our full time to get ready in the room!!! That kind of service to someone who is a Hilton Diamond Member is atrocious!!!

My husband an I have travelled extensively to hotels all over the world including the Ritz Carlton and Four Seasons and this hotel was better! The service was outstanding, the pool area is gorgeous, the rooms are barely used and beautiful and spacious. I only wish the restaurant had air conditioning as Orlando is steamy! I disagreed with other travellers who said it was hard to find and had nothing near by there are super markets, restaurants etc within 5 minutes. Also very convenient to Disney and Sea World. Can't wait to stay again and see what they add!
