“Everything we needed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

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!

A lot of places look great from the pictures but they really delivered. It was like a condo for a week, our own full kitchen, very quiet, didnt even know we had neighbors. The theme parks are very close, close enough to come back for lunch. Security was GREAT, we saw guards all over the place. I will definetly take my family back.

Room Tip: The lower floors are better, less elevator time.

very nice timeshare. checkin easy, parking pass counter separate(timeshare sell) just said no thanks. unit large and clean. nice balcony (bldg 16) dish soap,laundry soap, and bar soap provided. no shampoo, remember this is not a hotel!!! pool area beautiful, clean and warm water. grab a chair early only sun on one side of pool all day.(they do have 5 pools which you can use all if you want) parking is hard but we just went around back. nothing to ruin our vacation over. very central but not near noise. we were on vacation, not working, how can you complain about that!!!

We are grandparents and our daughter and grandson joined us. It was great for our grandson with the nice playground. He loved the jetted tub in our room too. We thoroughly enjoyed watching him have fun. We were comfortable as well. The unit was a bit dated and the lighting was stark. We had a washer/dryer in the unit which was very nice. Check in was long and the sales pitch at the end (when they give you your parking pass) was easily maneuvered with a simple no answer on the income qualifications.

Room Tip: We stayed in Bldg 5 second floor. Convenient except for the door which locks behind you other than...

We stayed at Vacation Village Parkway from Feb 24-March 2! I highly recommend you stay here... Request building 16 or 17.
We stayed in building 16... One bedroom full kitchen, stove, microwave, dishwasher, full fridge, washer sbd dryer fir clothes! The room was beautiful! The bed was a king... With a jacuzzi right beside it! The couch is a pull out sofa bed! Flat screen TV's and the location to all major attractions is 15 mins away! The pool is so warm you can swim all day:) Great resort... We will be back!
