“Good Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I was here over Thanksgiving. The place is very spacious and clean. Hotel staff was helpful when I needed them. There were a few things that needed attention such as a broken lamp and the jacuzzi not working, but they responded promptly to address my concerns. The furniture is kind of dated and even the bed skirts were torn, but it was clean and that is my biggest thing. The pool was cold even though they say it was heated. One of those days housekeeping didn't show up, so I was a little bummed about that. The construction was a little annoying (it cut into my rest time), but thankfully I only had to endure one day since it was over a holiday.

I would stay here again though based on the space, cleanliness and price.

Dear hittheroader -- Thanks for your review. I'm happy that the accommodations and staff did an excellent job for you. I apologize about the lamp and Jacuzzi, but glad we could get them taken care of quickly. And I'm sorry that Housekeeping missed you. I've notified our head of Housekeeping to be sure that doesn't happen again. Sounds like you may have been in one of the units which hadn't been renovated yet. In the next couple weeks, we'll have finished with ALL the suites, with new bedding, carpeting, sofa sleeper, lamps, stove and more. You should notice a big difference on your next stay with us. Hope that's soon.

We stayed 6 nights at the Floridays resort in Orlando. We were drawn to this accommodation based on reviews and the kitchen in the suites (we have gluten allergies in our family). Most of the buildings have been recently renovated (paint, flooring, furnishings). The staff are very friendly, courteous and prompt. Concierge desk booked all of the shuttles to and from Disney. The pool area was very appealing to the kids and in general all areas are kept clean (no garbage and ample clean towels on hand). The workout room was well equipped with Life fitness equipment. There is a Wallgreens and Publix market nearby for most things you will need. Its a little tough to walk to, as the sidewalk is cut off where there is some construction.
We enjoyed every part of our stay at this resort and would recommend without hesitation.

Dear Rob N -- Thanks for your review and recommendation. I'm glad you appreciated our newly renovated suites. That roadwork next door should be complete soon, making the walk to the grocery store more pleasant. I can't wait to welcome you back.

Just returned this morning from the resort. we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. we found the apartment spotlessly clean and very well equiped. Only suggestion is that a car is needed as there is not a great deal of places to eat within walking distance. we will definitely visit this resort again in the near future.

Dear David C -- Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. Love to see the word "great" in a review. Having a car definitely gives you more flexibility. But many are happy using the iRide Trolley, with access to a TON of other restaurants. And some like to prepare their meals in the suites. Lots of options -- always a good thing. I look forward to welcoming you back soon.

It is always worrisome to book a hotel solely based on internet reviews and websites but Floridays exceeded all of my expectations ! It was perfect for our family -clean and spacious rooms as well as a fully stocked kitchen. It was very convenient to Disney World and other attractions. The staff was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The value of the pricing was excellent -a suite was much less than the two rooms I nearly booked instead - I have recommended this resort to family and friends as well as planning to stay there anytime I travel to Orlando in the future-cannot think of a single negative comment !

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Floridays Resort; the accomadations were excellent! We rented a 3 bedroom suite for 4 people; we actually could have had an additional 8 people with us. The suite was immaculate and well appointed; great for larger families as the suites are equipped with a kitchen, washer/dryer, wifi, etc..

The staff at check-in/check-out were EXTREMELY nice and welcoming. Starbucks on site with a poolside bar and market place for your immediate necessities and a nice gym for those of us who like a little work out.

Floridays is approximately 6 years old and is still expanding; they are currently in construction in a new main entrance and our drive around this relatively small resort revealed a second smaller pool towards the rear of the property.

Clean towels and basic room service daily; I HIGHLY Recommended especially for families.

Dear Coquiman -- Thanks for the nice review. I'm pleased that you enjoyed everything, and that you liked your spacious suite. The "expansion" you may have seen might have been our recent renovation, where every suite was being updated with new stove, carpeting, sofabed, bed linens, etc. The roadwork next door, which will open up our main entrance, is part of a County project, and will be completed soon. I'm happy you discovered our "quiet" pool, near buildings D, E and F. It's a nice little oasis to relax and even enjoy the Jacuzzi. Your recommendation means a lot to us, and we're looking forward to your next visit with us.

We booked this resort mainly based on reviews on trip advisor. Overall our experience was very positive. Rooms were very spacious, clean and had everything we wanted during out week stay. The separate bedrooms and full kitchen were perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful and impressed us right away. Location is perfect and close to everything we wanted to do (Discovery Cove, Sea World, Aquatica and Disney). The only negative thing was that the pool was not heated so we were unable to use it. I was very disappointed with this since we wanted to be able to spend some time with our daughter just swimming at the hotel. Seems strange to me that Aquatica is able to keep their entire water park heated but Floridays can't heat one pool. Unfortunately this would keep us from booking in the future. If you aren't concerned with the pool temp this is a great place to stay!

Dear Tara O -- Thanks for your review, and I'm pleased your overall experience was positive. I apologize about the pool temperature. Our main pool IS heated, to over 80 degrees when the air temps get chilly. I do know many of the local water parks keep their water temperatures very high, so perhaps we didn't compare well with them. I do hope you'll come back again, perhaps during a warmer time when the water feels very refreshing.

How nice it was to stay at a clean resort. The front desk was courteous and the marketplace cafe breakfast was also good. Hats off to housekeeping which are typically taken for granted yet the most vital link to any great experience.
