Reviewed May 26, 2013

We stayed there with the whole family, 2 adults and three twenty-something children. We had booked two one bedroom suites with a sofa bed in the living room each. Although we had a prepaid rate and inserted all personal data and special requests during the online booking process via the hotel website check-in took almost 15 minutes which seemed a bit too long.
That is about the inly negative thing we cam say about the resort.

The suites were close together in the Paget house which is relatively far from the main building but didn't bother us at all. Right next to our house was the smaller second pool which was quiet and very, very nice.
To walk to the main bulding, the little store, the restaurant and the huge main pool took not even 10 minutes. If you do not have 10 minutes to spare during vacation something is wrong anyway.

The interior of our suites was great, the furniture nice, it's a bit too dark for my personal taste but well maintained and absolutely fine. The suite was very clean, the bathroom HUGE, lots of personal space, various closets. The kitchen is fully equipped for 4 persons, housekeeping even provided dishwasher detergent, kitchen towels and sponges. There is a toaster and a coffee maker with a supply of coffee packs to get started. We loved these little thoughtful extras, I don't think they are mentioned on the website.
Every suite comes with a washer and a dryer which is just great when you travel a lot. As a little extra we also found a pack of laundry detergent, again very thoughful.

The suite also comes with a screened balcony with furniture for four people, it was nice to have breakfast outside. The inroom dining table is also designed for four.

The little store in the main building offers basic supplies, groceries and sandwiches but we preferred the nearby Publix supermarket as the variety and prices are naturally better there. If you just need a few items the store is perfect though.

All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, even the gardeners shouted a friendly good morning when we walked around the little lake in the mornings. That brings me to the surroundings of the hotel: the gardens are very well maintained, lots of palm trees, flowers, bushes, very green. There is a little lake at the main building, called the fitness trail, it's beautiful to walk around it.

There are tons of activities going on all day, some are complimentary, some are not. The activity plan shows the options for each day. Unfortunately we only stayed for two days and couldn't enjoy much of these activities but I can imagine families with kids of various ages enjoy these very much.

Should travels bring us to Orlando again in the future we would definitley consider to book the resort again.

Found the hotel deal online and without having to go thru the any sales pitch. Had all the amenities you need when traveling with kids, nice pool, activities, covered playground was awesome for young kids and friendly staff. The on property store was good for sandwiches and breakfast items and publix is down the road for any groceries/wine. Bonefish restaurant was 5 mins across road and good for adults yet child friendly. The one drawback, day 2 we woke up to lawn mowers at 6 AM and when I called the front desk they said it was the golf course behind them and they have had issues with them - I could call back later in the day and see if I could be moved. For a 5 day trip it was not worth the hassle - it just had us up earlier to start our day.

Room Tip: Ask to be near the pool and facing the pool or the parking lot - not the golf course.

This large property is in a great location especially for Sea World (walking distance....just!) Not much else accessible without a car (CVS, Petrol Station & Bonefish restaurant) but at least being away from the attractions does mean you can get plenty of peace on site. To be honest we didn't use many of the facilities as we were only there a week and wanted to make use of the theme parks, we did check out the small on site shop but it did seem a little expensive - nothing unusual in that though). We had a 3 bedroom apartment and it was really spacious (if a little dated) with a large lounge/dining/kitchen area. Kitchen was well equipped with crockery/cutlery etc, and the washing machine/tumble dryer were a nice addition. The staff encountered on reception all seemed really friendly and helpful. My only word of caution is that when Sea World close (late afternoon in March) traffic came to a stand still and you could not get anywhere very quickly - we almost missed out dinner reservation sitting in traffic for approx. 45 minutes!!.

This is likely one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in and for the price of a sales pitch, it was worth every penny. It had everything we could possibly need: kitchen, washer/dryer, living room and private master bedroom and a screened in balcony overlooking the pool. Parking was a bit iffy at times and you had to walk a ways to your building. We stayed here to visit Universal Studios. From the hotel it was only about a ten minute drive. SeaWorld is quite literally just across the street. The kids really enjoyed the pool. Too bad the only way you are likely to stay at this hotel is by joining the Hilton Grand Vacation Club. We were impressed with the pricing until the hit us up with the annual homeowners association fee which essentially double the yearly cost.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking one of the pools.

We stayed here in May 2013 to visit Seaworld / Aquatica and then Discovery Cove, and Universal. It is such an awesome location, very close to all these theme parks and complimentary shuttle rides are a bonus! When we got there, we didn’t like the room view; so we asked for another room facing pool; and Arthur made a quick phone call and the room was given right away! our room was in Hamilton Place; facing pool; but surprising enough; not noisy at all !... The room was great size for 2 people; full kitchen; dining area; and Jacuzzi.
The hotel area is awesome; very clean and relaxing. 2 main pools with a handful of hot tubs scattered around the pool area… also table tennis and other games around the pool area is available, and they show movies which we didn’t get to do any of that because of short stay ! … hopefully next time…
The staffs are VERY helpful and friendly, and accommodating. The only complain would be the restaurant at hotel which at that time the kitchen was under construction; so it made it a bit difficult to eat in; but there is a 7/11 and BoneFish Grill restaurant (which we visited twice) less than 5 min walk to hotel… Except for the restaurant, there is a express café that serves light breakfast , lunch , snacks and also grocery items , etc… overall; I would stay here again definitely ! well recommended !

I have been coming to Hilton Grand Vacation Club at Seaworld since 2001. I thought I'd be sick of it by now. But I love it as much as "when we first met!" I have tried other resorts with fancy names but they try to nickel and dime guests for everything from wash-machine detergent to newspapers. And their level of customer service doesn't come close to the accommodating staff at HGVC Seaworld. Need something? Late checkout? In-room whirlpool not working at 1am? Just call the front desk for a warm, polite, quick response, almost always yes! Other resorts try, but except for some of the Disney properties, I haven't found an equivalent level of customer service, meticulous attention to detail, and value.
