My husband and I stayed at V V at Parkway from 11/30/07 to 12/14/07 - a trip we had booked through RCI. At first we were unhappy with the room they had assigned us so we went back to the front desk and complained (told us the room had a pool view - it had a pool pump view). The indivuduals helping us at this point were very helpful and not only gave us a room with a better view, they gave us an upgrade which made our stay much more pleasant as we had friends coming and we needed the extra space. Special thanks to Jessica and her supervisor for this. Regarding the room and our overall stay. We had some complaints, mostly related to housekeeping, and some maintenance, but when all was said and done we had a great time, and we would recommend this place to most anyone. The place is not a palace but it is more than adequate. Decor is fine, space adequate, and the porches nice to have. Our first impression was "nice place" the only thing missing was greenery - not a plant in the place, no flowers (personally I like the plastic floral arrangements - they add an element of comfort and cozyness). Note that the buildings were being renovated individually during our stay as this was slow season (example building 12 was closed as was being "renovated"). Our building (#8) had not yet been renovated and did need some work: some furnishings needed replacement such as the coffee table was scratched up, bed linnens in need of replacement, and our mattress needed to be replaced (which they did promptly when we complained). My biggest complaint was with housekeeping - we were not impressed with this. I did complaine to house keeping staff regarding specific concerns (when I caught them in the halls), and they did come in and take care of some of my concerns, but not all. I question if they understood what I was saying as most of them spoke spanish. I should have called the front desk with ALL of my housekeeping concerns, but did not as I did not feel the concerns warrented this - my mistake. Housekeeping needs to look under the beds, behind furniture, and have a check list (micro wave had not been cleaned from previous visitor - this I called on). One gentleman, Marcelo was very efficient and helpful despite the language barrier. Thanks Marcelo - you deserve a raise. I mentioned earlier that I would recommend this place to MOST anyone - I would not recommend this resort to anyone wanting to do much sunbathing as the situation and height of the buildings block the sun for much of the day. Now to give you the good news. The resort is only 5/10 minutes from Disney, the units are very nice, and I suspect they will be even better once all are renovated, washer and dryers are a plus, and can manage a reasonable size load. The resort provides you with ample paper goods and dish washer soap, etc. (just ask), Most importantly, at least to me and my husband, the front desk staff was excellent - no call was ignored and no need not attended to. We would most certainly recommend this place to our friends, and would return in the future.
