We stayed at Vacation Village At Parkway, in Kissimmee, in mid-March 2013. Our 3 week vacation was split between 3 resorts.....Star Island Resort, then Vacation Village.....then Lake Eve Resort.
Vacation Village was, by far, our favourite resort for many reasons. We stayed in building 12 in room #503 (we had 2 apartments together)...facing the boardwalk and family picnic area. It was a beautiful and peaceful view, and when we go again, we will surely request this view. We were impressed with the fine workmanship of every aspect of our rooms. Often, resort buildings and rooms can look nice from afar (or in photos) but once you examine them closely, it's obvious that they were just thrown together by workers trying to get the job done quickly, and who didn't take the time to put their hearts into the results. Vacation Village was obviously built with love....baseboards, tiling, etc. were immaculate. The cleanliness and care of the buildings and grounds was outstanding! We were impressed with the ongoing care and maintenance of each and every area on the resort. Every area even smelled clean! The staff were friendly and accommodating....and always smiling. :) The kitchens (we had 2) were well-stocked (however we weren't aware that they supplied the dishwasher soap until a few days before we left, so bought some ourselves). The dishwashers (we had 2) worked well, as did all of the appliances supplied. We loved that there was so much tiling throughout our rooms.....easy to clean and less chance of lingering dust mites. The beds were so comfortable and the bedding was comfy. The towels were plush and plentiful.....and lots of towels at the pool, which weren't monitored (unlike other resorts where we experienced an uncomfortable limit and monitoring system, which made us feel like potential criminals...lol). The location of Vacation Village is close to all necessary amenities....Publix, restaurants, shopping.....all just a short walk away. Everything about Vacation Village was pleasant and inviting....and we will surely return on our next trip from Canada to Kissimmee. Thanks Vacation Village At Parkway!!
