Hotel Review: Hilton Garden Inn in Port St. Lucie

Recently I was given the opportunity to review the facilities at PGA Village in Port St. Lucie, Florida. My stay there was complimentary since I went as a Superoo on behalf of this awesome travel site I'm a part of called Trekaroo. Although my stay and some of my activities there were free, please know that, as always, my words and opinions are 100% my own! For more information on my disclosure policy, please see the tab titled 'Let me disclose to you'.

There are three properties to choose from at the PGA Village, and we ended up staying at the Hilton Garden Inn. It's been years since I've stayed at a Hilton, but this one was just as fantastic at the others I'd been able to stay at in the past. (For more on our general review of the PGA Village, please click here.)

The rooms were clean and inviting, and I loved that the air smelled good when we walked into our room. The room had a refrigerator and microwave in it - which I count as a must when you are traveling with kids like me! - and it also had a surprise feature: a Keurig coffee-maker! Although the coffee available wasn't a blend that I cared for, the fact that there was a Keurig machine in the room was a definite bonus. Had I known ahead of time, I certainly would have brought along some Dunkin' K-cups, which are my favorite.

We also had in-room Wi-Fi, which was great for working on our laptop. Even better than that though was the Business Center they had available just down the hall from our room, complete with a printer set-up and a paper shredder. My husband was excited about their huge exercise room, and we were both wishing for a moment alone to try out the hot-tub out by the pool.

The Sam Snead's Tavern on site made grabbing breakfast, lunch or dinner easy, and the beautiful lobby was a nice place to sit and have a coffee or read the newspaper. (For more on our restaurant review, please click here.)

The staff at the hotel were spectacular. The check-in clerk, Junior, was especially helpful and friendly and made sure that we knew where everything was. He even let us know that we could get a ride over to the PGA Center on a golf-cart if we just asked at the front desk! We were equally impressed with how well the hotel service treated our room and belongings while we were gone. Shoes and clothes were scattered across the room from the morning's frenzy to dress our little ones and get out the door, and when we returned from the day's activities, they were all neatly placed next to our suitcases. (For more on the review of our family-golf activity, please click here.)

All in all, we had a fantastic stay. To find out more about the PGA Village, their properties, and all the fun they have to offer, check out their website at www.pgavillage.com. Or, you can connect with them through social media on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or Instagram.
