Our Experience of Hilton Signia Bonnet Creek

Our stay at Hilton Signia Bonnet Creek Family was a much-needed break from the hustle and bustle of theme parks. Just a quick drive from Disney World and LEGOLAND Florida, this property is perfectly located for family fun.

Stepping into the modern lobby, we were greeted with views of the swirling water park, complete with a waterslide and lazy river. Check-in and out were a breeze, thanks to the electronic system with no waiting in line.

When we wanted some alone time, the hubby and I headed to the neighboring Waldorf Astoria for spa treatments or a round of golf. The daytime Kids’ Club and evening sitting service were a lifesaver!

One downside was the hotel’s isolation, requiring a car or shuttle to get around. Dining options outside the hotel were limited, so plan ahead or stick to the on-site restaurants.

For families booking adjoining rooms, it’s best to call ahead to ensure the rooms are saved together. And opting for rooms closer to the elevators to avoid long walks can go a long way in making your stay a lot more comfortable.

The lazy river and pool were highlights for the family, especially the water slide! The kiddie life jackets at the pool were a great bonus for our youngest swimmers.

Overall, the property was clean, spacious, and offered plenty of food options, plus a fantastic bar to unwind after a day at the park. With a bit of planning, we even scored high-floor rooms with views of the Epcot fireworks, which the girls absolutely loved!

Value for Money

In terms of location, the resort offers great value for its proximity to the theme park. Taxi rides are usually affordable, but you can also take advantage of the free shuttle bus.

Keep in mind that prices vary depending on the season. As per the reviews, expect higher costs during peak tourist times, but you’ll find better deals during the off-season.

Attention to the details is what the resort offers, and the excellent room service and staff reflect just that.

While the hotel’s luxury amenities come with a price tag, the on-site restaurants offer well-rounded, reasonably priced options. Kids under 5 even eat breakfast for free.

Although the food and service were excellent, prices were a bit steep.

Tip: Kids 12 and under can enjoy free or discounted dining at Harvest Bistro.

One downside is the parking situation, as you’ll need to pay for parking if you’re bringing your own vehicle. Daily resort fees cover self-parking (valet incurs an additional fee), WiFi, bottled water, access to the fitness center, and discounted spa treatments.

Pros and Cons of Hilton Signia Bonnet Creek

While the Hilton Signia Bonnet Creek offers a myriad of benefits, here’s a breakdown of the pros and cons to help you decide whether this is the best place for you and your family:

Pros:

1. Family-Friendly Atmosphere: Its spacious accommodations, kid-friendly environment, and a number of amenities that engage all age groups makes it a favorite of most families.

2. On-site Activities: With a spectacular pool area, water slides, children’s programs, recreational facilities, an arcade, and even a club, this hotel guarantees a fun-filled family holiday. 

3. Ideal Location: While close enough to top attractions like Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort, it’s still secluded enough for families to get their quality time together. And as a bonus, the travel to the many attractions is a lot more convenient and cheaper. 

4. Food: The dining options include everything from casual eateries to upscale restaurants all on the resort premises. The restaurants cater to all preferences and tastes in the family and include everything from elaborate breakfast spreads to quick bites by the pool.

5. Top Notch Service: The staff at the hotel are well-known for their exceptional service and go out of their way to ensure families feel welcomed, comfortable, and well taken care of throughout their stay. Room service can be availed upon request.

Cons:

1. Price Factor: Luxury vacations come at a price, and the Hilton Signia Bonnet Creek is no exception. The accommodation, dining, and resort fees can prove taxing if you’re traveling on a limited budget. 

2. Crowded Facilities: During peak seasons, the resort’s amenities, such as the pool area and dining venues, get super crowded. This can easily turn a peaceful retreat into a challenging experience for families.

3. Additional Fees: Families should be aware of potential additional fees, such as resort fees, parking charges, and activity costs, which can accumulate and add to the overall expense of the stay.

4. Limited Shuttle Service: Although the resort does offer shuttle service to nearby attractions, the schedule has been known to be limited or not sufficiently frequent, requiring travelers to arrange alternative transportation. So plan ahead with a map and bus schedule to make sure you get to your destination for the day in time. 

5. Potential Noise Levels: Given the resort’s popularity with families and other guests, the noise level in common areas or within accommodations may fluctuate, impacting the ability to relax or sleep peacefully, especially for those sensitive to noise. 

6. Cleanliness: While overall a great and comfortable stay, the staff does need to be informed for a quick cleaning.
