In June this year we had a lovely holiday at the Blue Heron. The apartment was spacious, clean and had a dishwasher, washing machine and everything you would need in the kitchen! The bedroom and lounge had a long balcony with a beautiful view of the lake. Outside the front door we had a fantastic view of the magic kingdom... More

We stayed in a family suite at the Blue Heron Beach Resort for a family vacation. When we arrived, a very friendly young woman greeted us and checked us in. Our bags were brought up to our room by another courteous employee and we were shown around the room. He told us how to operate everything and told about places... More

Great for Florida Residents, had a FL Residents Deal and for others traveling to Florida. Great experience, courteous and friendly staff. Great view of lake and pools, lake is pristine and secluded with little development on it. Clean room that was spacious for a family of four, a full kitchen with two bathrooms, a plus. Accessible to restaurants, shopping, attractions... More

Only inconvenience was the thin (but very clean and pretty) inner shower curtain that would constantly blow into the shower and cover me while taking a shower lol. Had to constantly shut the water off and readjust the curtain only to have it blow in again moments later. Water pressure was very strong (good), which created a vacuum/air pressure situation....

We stayed for a week with two kids, 8 and 5 years old. The room was great, with 2 full bathrooms and fully functioning kitchen with all appliances. Also, a good location within walking distance to restaurants and drug/grocery stores. We spent most of the days at the pool, which the kids loved. The area was clean and neat every... More

This was a great Resort, very clean, excellent location, awesome facilities and very friendly staff. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone traveling to Orlando. The hotel was very clean, staff was very friendly and the hotel was close to all major attractions and close to the airport.

We recently stayed 12 nights at the Blue Heron, and we highly recommend you to stay here. We had stayed at the Caribbean Beach Club and Port Orleans Riverside on Disney property before, but we wanted something bigger than just a boxed room with two beds side by side.

The Blue Heron was just a place to stay. It was a little over priced and nothing special. It had everything needed, but our unit was on the smaller size. The condo sits on a lake.
