We stayed at Solterra with my family from July 9th to 23rd. I suppose i now have to admit that my children are adults so let's say we were 8 adults! We arrived late on a Saturday evening but the system for collecting access information from Florida Scandinavian (property managers) worked well. Sat Nav really is essential for finding your way around Florida and in particular after a long journey, 2 flights in a hire car etc. Solterra wasn't in the Sat Nav and that was a little worrying at first but with Google maps on cell phones we found our way and put it in as our "home address".
The villa is really perfect for a large family or even two groups. It has 3 double rooms, one twin and one with bunks but it also has a couple of pull out beds upstairs in a leisure area where there's a large flatscreen TV and table football. If essential you could sleep a couple extra there. The villa has plenty of bathrooms, showers, toilets etc and no shortage of hot water. Really you would struggle to find a single thing that might improve the place. Perhaps we could have had more towels lets say bath towels in the bathrooms and towels for when you go to the waterparks. It's one of those things that you probably should bring (beach towels) but rarely do because of their bulkiness. I also like to BBQ and the property doesn't have a grill. I was able to hire one from the property managers (and that was a bit of a waste as i only used it once!). Perhaps the addition of a grill by the owners.
Having said all that, the facility is top class and i would thoroughly recommend it. We went to Universal Studios, Disney, and Seaworld. Be prepared for traffic congestion both way along the I4, I don't think it's avoidable. Solterra is close to Champions Gate and there is a large Publix grocery store there as well as some fast food options. Try the brand new Red Robin sit-in burger joint, very nice. We also went to Kennedy Space Centre which we enjoyed and to Baush Gardens at Tampa. Driving to Tampa couldn't be easier from Solterra. As a theme park Baush Gardens remains top class.
Not much else to say. Go and stay.
