“Loved everything!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We spent 12 days in Florida and loved staying here with our 3 children. Having 2 baths was fantastic to get out earlier in the morning. The rooms were clean and and safe The view of the pool from the 3rd floor was beautiful! Location was excellent with restaurants, grocery stores, shopping and Disney close by! Privacy was nice by having 3 children on one side and my husband and I on the other. Only one small complaint was the wifi was slow but it was free so how do you complain about that! It was like a home away from home and would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a pool side or you will be facing the highway on the other.

Stayed here and loved it!!! I was with my wife and teen son (17) and we all loved it. The rooms are clean and secure (had to enter 3 doors with key to get access). The room i had was on the 5th floor and overlooked the pool which at any given time in Florida has a great view. The location is great also as it is near all of the local attractions including Arabian Nights. We went their and were able to walk across the street to see it. Overall the check in and the people working their are what make this place great. They have a ton of activites (bingo, dive in movie, parents night out, etc) to do as well. Will stay here again on any of my staycations.

We have stayed here twice. Once in building 9 and once in 8. The good: kitchen is fairly well stocked if you like to cook in, the grounds are well kept, property layout is good and location is good, the staff is average- not overly helpful or friendly. Drawbacks, beds are average - sofa sleeper is like sleeping directly on springs, if you are in a one bedroom you will share an entry hallway with another one bedroom unit - there is a lot of noise as you hear them coming and going as two doors will slam and all of their conversations - you will also share a heating and cooling unit. Both sides have their own thermostat however you only have control within 3 degrees of each other. So, if you like it 76 and the neighbor wants it at 72 - the HVAC unit tries to go between heating and cooling - this does not work well. Because our neighbors like it cold, we had to have maintenance come to totally shut our unit off -- no air or heat because the system could not adjust.
Stay here if you can get a two bedroom, that way you control the entry hallway and the temperature.

Room Tip: Stay here if you can get a two bedroom.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, as we’re always happy to hear from our repeat guests! We’re sorry that weren’t able to meet all of your expectations but are pleased to know that overall you enjoyed your stay with us. We’ve had some issues with the sofa sleeper mattresses recently, however, we are in the process of changing over to a different type; one that has already proven successful in another Vacation Village Resorts property. Buildings 8 & 9 units have their own heating and cooling system. A & B units in buildings 14 & 15 are the only units that share a heating and cooling system. The A unit controls the system in these buildings. These two buildings are primarily reserved for guests who have two-bedroom reservations. Thank you again for your review and we hope that we may continue to welcome you back to Vacation Village at Parkway Resort the next time your travels bring you to Orlando.

We stayed in building 10 for 6 nights. Great location to all the theme parks plus shopping and restaurants. Unit was okay, large enough for the four of us, but definitely needs some updating. Clean when we arrived, but the mid-week cleaning was moderate. Blinds were broken (one fixed immediately upon notification) and curtains would have been nice as it was very bright at night. Washer/dryer in room was nice. Staff was very friendly. Parking at night was difficult at times. Would definitely stay there again, but would want one of the newer units with full kitchen.

Our 7 day stay at the Village was very nice. The check in was rough as they have a hard sell desk that you must get by to get your parking pass. Very fast talking with a smile. In our room on the 5th floor was a 1 bedroom, 1 bath, kitchen/dining area with a couch that folds out to a bed and a very nice balcony overlooking the pool. The bed was very creaky and the fold out couch mattress was very thin. The fridge was making ice cubes all night the first night we got there but we figured out how to adjust it so it stopped. The location of the Village was perfect. Right in the middle of everything! Close to all parks in Disney, Sea World, Universal, lot's of places to dine and shop close by.

We're grateful for your review and proud that we were able to exceed your expectations. It’s important to note that we do offer various incentives to travelers to learn about the benefits of timeshare and have had many satisfied customers. Currently we have over 300,000 owners in the Vacation Village Resort family who choose us as their vacation destination year after year. Even though owning timeshare may not be for you, we hope that you may visit us again in the future as a guest the next time your travels bring you to Orlando.

We stayed in building 17 in room 805A Mar 4-10. This one bedroom unit had very little wear and tear on it, and still smelled new. The king bed and pillows were very comfortable. Not something I can usually stay when I travel. Fully equipped kitchen with full size refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, coffee maker, pots & pans, it even had a blender. Room also had a stacked washer and dryer, jacuzzi tub, pull out sofa sleeper,nice flat screen tvs, and a furnished balcony. Check in was very simple. Larry was most helpful. Skip shopping at Goodies Supermarket. They have horrible produce and outrageous prices. Instead choose Publix, it is a beautiful grocery store just a half mile down the road. I am very happy to say that we were never approached by anyone regarding anything to do with timeshare. One gentleman at the pool mentioned that he felt his experience was very aggressive. Pool area was well kept. We did have to call for pool towels one night, and they came out with them within in minutes. On the downside, the walls are a bit thin. Chairs sliding across the tile floor in other rooms and floors can be heard quite loudly. If you are a light sleeper, I advise traveling with earplugs. Not of fan of their brand of toilet paper. I'll choose a great bed over crummy toilet paper any day. Over all it was a great stay.

We had a great time at Vacation Village at Parkway. A great location for us to get onto the the highway to catch spring training games in Clearwater and Lakeland, also a 5 minute drive from ESPN Wide World of Sports to watch the Braves.
The room was spacious and clean (which is really important for my wife). Staff was friendly and not too hard on getting us to go to their "breakfast". The kitchen was great and a Publix is nearly across the street.
We truly enjoyed our stay!
