“Our home away from home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This will be our 3rd trip to Floridays. We stayed in the 2 bedroom/2 bath condo which allows plenty of room for us and our three boys (ages 10,6,4).

The kitchens have every gadget you need to successfully cook a meal and even store leftovers. The coffee maker is a single cup Keurig which is what our family uses at home. There is a stackable washer/dryer.

The condo was clean and comfortable. The dark-out curtains and nice beds allowed for a restful sleep, anytime of the day. The property had plenty of parking and the pool was a big hit with the kids. I did notice the pool furniture was worn but staff did say a new shipment of furniture was on it's way.

Great quality, great price!

We stayed at Floridays the week of March 4th with our two young children (6 yrs old and 3 yrs old). The staff we dealt with were helpful and staff around the property always said hello and/or offered a smile. Our request for building B was accommodated, as was our request to be near our friends who we travelled with. The room was large, clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location was great and close to all the Disney properties, SeaWorld, shopping etc. We enjoyed an evening at Benihana which was within walking distance. The kids had a blast at the pool, sandbox, and game room. The pool temperature was nice. The music at the pool added a tropical resort feeling without being overpowering. Our son enjoyed some hockey in the evening on the large televisions outside the pool area. Housekeeping was quiet. We did not feel pressured to be out of our room at a certain hour to ensure our room was made up. Instead, they seemed to know when we were out and we always returned to our beds being made and garbages emptied and even dishes done on occasion. During our daughter's naps we put the do not disturb key, which was respected. In terms of the construction, we barely noticed. Overall, we really enjoyed our visit and intend to return next year.

Floridays Resort was an oasis in the heart of activity - so close to parks, restaurants and outlet shopping! The rooms are large, well appointed and extremely reasonable. The amenities are convenient and relaxing and the staff is friendly and accomodating! I was there for a business trip but will definitely be bringing my family of 6 back!!

My family and I stayed from February 15, 2013 through February 25, 2013. 2 bedroom suite was very accommodating! Our visit was a mix of business and pleasure--business for my husband and pleasure for my son and I. Our suite was in building F--which I believe is the very LAST building at the resort. The walking didn't bother us. Our stay here was GREAT! I do not have any complaints. Rooms were clean, beds were comfy, kitchen appliances worked--they even had a Keurig! Oh, but if returning back to the resort past 10 PM parking can be a slight problem. There is a Publix, Walgreens, Outback Steakhouse, 7-Eleven all within walking distance. Great High-end outlet shopping just around the corner. Truly enjoyed Floridays and would return. Also recommending it to friends.

Room Tip: Building F is the LAST building in the resort-NOT close to entrance/exit. Currently there is only o...

Dear tatesonthego
AMAZING!! I am flattered and thrilled that you chose THAT word to describe your stay with us. I am originally from a big city myself...so I thoroughly enjoy the 5 minute walk to and from building F - plus it is so peaceful back there by the quiet pool. Thank you for your mention of our proximity to Publix for groceries, family restaurants, and the Walgreen's pharmacy. And, as well, for recommending us to your friends...you just may be our next Floridays Super Fan! We will see you on your next vacation I hope.

We spent 2 weeks with our 2 and 5 yr olds. Great service, all around. Close to attractions. Priced right. If ever in Orlando we will definitely consider returning! Kids were happy there and would have been happy to stay on site every day. Weekend entertainment poolside was an added bonus! Well done Floridays!!!

Dear Ron T,
Glad to read that you had an enjoyable 2 weeks with us. Parents have told us time and time again that their children were at the theme parks and just wanted to come back home to Floridays to swim in the pool! So I understand what you are saying. I will mention to D.J. Chrisanne that her weekend program was a hit with your family. See you again next time!

We arrived at this resort after taking a 7 day cruise. We arrived in the evening around 7:30pm to a very pleasant check in process. However much like many of the reviews I read, we were assigned to a condo in "bldg F" way in the back of the resort. However once we entered the room it didn't matter. The rooms were superb with the addition of a comforable pull out couch.... I am really big on the bathrooms and I was very pleased!!! We didn't do much cooking but if we were there was a full kitchen with everything we would need. This is an excellent location for grocery store, gas, outlet shopping and resturants.

We did go to the parks and did not use the free shuttle which was available. Not that is wasn't good, we just prefer to come and go when without waiting. Each night when we returned from the parks the main pool was full of families who appeared to be having a great time. The weather wad a bit chilly so we didn't use the pool.

I don't really have anything negative to say about this property...
I would like to have received information about all of the great things the resort has to offer. When checking in we only received a very quick overview but some handouts. The one thing I didn't like was that the bathrooms were not cleaned. The beds were made and towels were replaced but no cleaning of the tub/toilets.

All and all we had a great time and these are excellent accommodations!

Dear ATLbywayofNY
Glad to hear that you had such a nice time with us! Many guests, like you, do enjoy the flexibility of using their vehicles to go to the parks. Great suggestion! Oh, and the trash and tidy service is provided daily, however, any guests staying 9 nights or longer do receive a complimentary full suite cleaning on their 7th day. Hopefully when you return the weather will be somewhat more pleasing. Hope you enjoyed your cruise, too! Can’t wait to see you back at Floridays soon!

We stayed at mystic dunes paid by in-laws for first week and here for last few days as family parted. Really liked both resorts! However Floridays rooms were spacious, clean. Impressed by overall appearance, beds were comfy. Pool was heated (for march weather anyway) and kids had a lot of fun playing in the 4 fountains. Drinks/food were great (little pricey however). Starbucks was on location but be informed it is the "brewed by" not full starbucks so i couldnt use my starbucks gold card. But they did make great mochas and lattes that i couldnt tell the difference. Parking was never an issue and hotel was booked during our stay. Location was about 7 min to Disney and 3 min from outlet mall. We plan on returning for sure! Nothing negative to report.
