We have just arrived back in the Uk having stayed at the Hilton Bonnet Creek from 22nd August for 10 nights. We flew with Virgin Atlantic and had a good flight arriving about 2 hours late due to a thunderstorm in the area as we approached Orlando.
Our transport to the Hotel was ok and took about 20 mins.
The Hotel check in was quick and hassle free we were given Virgin Room keys which get you 20% off all food and drinks and a seperate key for a Virgin Concierge room.
The room was clean and well appointed with a flat sreen Tv and Fridge. Shower and Bathrrom were very good only downside about room was wardrobe space limited but apart from that no complaints.
The dining options are very good the main Harvest Restaurant does a great Breakfast with loads of choice, we got 20 free vouchers to use which was great, if not it costs about 20 dollars per person. Evening meal is standard modern American Menu with Burger/Chicken/Salads Etc good quality with very generous portions. The other Restaurant for an Evening Meal was the Italian which again was very good. You can use the Neighbouring Waldorf Astoria as well, the Restaurants there are very upmarket and expensive our bill was $200 for 3 of us, but the food was very very good.
There is also a MUSE coffee bar which is just like a Starbucks, the Coffee and food is again very good, we used it for lunch if crashing by the pool for day.
The Virgin Concierge room is a nice touch from Virgin. It is a private lounge with a pool table/ Flat sreen Tv and 3 state of the art Apple Mac PCs, Great for keeping up to date with your E mails or Facebook if you have kids our daughter loved it and kept in touch with her mates back in the Uk.
The pool area again is first class the Lazy River is clean and open from 7am till Midnight. They even put a massive sceen up every night at 9pm to watch a Disney film whist lying in the pool, Amazing!! Our only complaint was a Lightening alarm, it went off if there was lightening within a 5 mile radius, if it goes off they clear the pool and lock it up for min 15 mins, dont mind if its raining but one day it went off when it was red hot.
Overall the Hotel was very very good i would recommend it. It is on the doorstep of Disney with a shuttle bus every half an hour to the parks free of charge. We did universal more with having a 14 year old daughter and got the local bus from the Transport Centre onto International DDrive it took abput about an hour. A taxi would be about 40 Dollars.
