Review of Product: I was lucky enough to stay at the Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek last weekend. We had an awesome time and this property was fabulous! We stayed for 2 nights and took advantage of many of the awesome amenities the resort has to offer. We arrived on Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the valet. I was amazed at how fast the valets were with our car each time we needed it. I have had to wait a long time at other Orlando hotels. As you enter there is some delicious flavored water waiting for you.
We checked in very quickly and noticed that each staff member at the resort smiled, made eye contact and seemed genuinely concerned that we have an excellent visit. The view right when you walk inside the lobby is of the pool area and the surrounding properties and is beautiful.
We were struck by how NEW everything was. There was that great new smell everywhere and the furniture was all very nice. The hotel is done in muted blues, purples and browns and the feel is very zen as you can see from the lobby.
See what I mean about the gorgeous colors? The furniture was all so unique and the seating everywhere was super comfortable!There was even a coffee shop serving Starbucks coffee in the lobby that was open until 10 pm each night!
This was the view from our room.
Of course, I’d love to show you the room but before I could take a picture of the untouched room it was promptly made messy so you’ll have to take my word that the picture below from the website is exactly what the room looked like!
The best part of the room was an alcove between the bathroom and the bed area with bunk beds and a small flat screen TV – perfect for kids. Noah LOVED the bunk beds! There was also a child height sink near the bunk beds which made getting ready in the morning a whole lot easier! The resort had a lot of activities for kids such as this cool kid’s room downstairs.
There was also a fun bachelor room with couches, a TV and a pool table! There really was something for everyone at the resort!
On our first night there we sat in the lobby lounge area before dinner. The seating was very comfortable and they had a very unique drink menu with holiday martinis – we tried one that had a sweet potato reduction in a glass rimmed with graham cracker crumbs – yum! The restaurant in the resort was very elegant and I loved that they offered 2 free hours of kiddie camp time when the adults dined at the restaurant!
My favorite part was the spa at the resort. It was small but had great amenities and the experience shower they had there was amazing! We had massages, they had a peppermint towel massage special for just $99, very reasonable for a 50 minute hotel spa massage. They even had cool areas outside for you to get your massage!
We didn’t go to any of the Disney parks but there were frequent shuttles to take you all over if you needed them. We used our weekend as a staycation of sorts (since we live only 100 miles away) and relaxed and recharged at the resort. So whether you’re doing a Disney/Universal kind of vacation or just looking for a place to relax, definitely consider the Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek. The resort just opened in October and is waiting for you with special deals starting at $119 per night through 12/25/11. If you’re traveling to Orlando this resort should be at the top of your list – it’s definitely at the top of mine!
I received a 2 night stay at the resort to complete this review at no charge but my opinions remain my own.
