Parc Soleil Staycation

30 Aug

One of he best things about living in Orlando Florida is the abundance of  awesome resorts.

Chillaxin by the pool!

Coupled with beautiful weather, you can have a wonderful vacation without going out of town or spending tons of money.  Dr. B and I took a short staycation this weekend at the Parc Soleil by Hilton Grand Grand Vacations.  We used our Hilton Honors points for a free night, then we upgraded to a penthouse suite!

That's me, in the yellow testing the water

It was a wonderful, wonderful day!  I  felt like we were on our second honeymoon.  The property has 3 swimming pools, 4 jacuzzis, and a water slide and we took advantage of all of them.  We sat at the poolside restaurant all. Day. Long. and we swam, ate, and drank to our hearts content. The best part was spending time with my wonderful husband.  We were in our own world, acting silly, holding hands and smooching 🙂

Sunday Morning we slept in and lounged around on the balcony that had an awesome view of the city.  Then we checked out and had a nice, calorie-loaded breakfast at Perkins.  It felt great to let go, recharge, and spend quality time with my husband.

Were going to try and plan a short staycation every 2 to 3 months.  We think it’s important for couples to get away and spend some quality time doing nothing, but being with each other.

Mi amor!

      Jake,

      Yes, we absolutely loved the resort. We will definitely be back in the near future. We only stay in Hilton properties when we travel. We will be staying at the Doubletree in Savannah, GA this upcoming Labor Day weekend, and we plan on staying at the Hilton Checkers in Los Angeles for Christmas. Our goal is to move up to Gold VIP by year end 🙂

    Jealous! Looks like fun!

    We are going to take a mini-moon to S Padre Island, which is right on the Mexican border from Houston, but want to take a longer trip over the holidays.

    Do you know anything about Destin, FL??

      No, I never been to Destin, but I have been to Panama City, which is somewhat similar. The beach is gorgeous! Also it was surprisingly inexpensive.
