We have stayed many times at the Blue Heron since it opened in 2007 and we just love coming back here year after year, so much so that it's become an essential part of our holiday.Our last trip was April and as ever we were looked after incredibly well by all of the staff here, but a special mention has to go to Darlin who always takes such good care of us, and to be honest we are quite fussy, but nothing is ever too much trouble. Any issues that we have had are always dealt with straight away without fuss. One of the most important things in a hotel/condo for us is to have a balcony where we can relax with a drink after a nice meal out in the evening. This is what makes the Blue Heron unbeatable in Orlando as, like many have said, the view over Lake Bryan is stunning and surprisingly peaceful, something which is hard to find in this area.We prefer the 2 bedroom deluxe suite as this gives you the choice of a peaceful view over the lake, or you can sit on the balcony at the front and watch the Disney fireworks every night. The condos themselves are extremely spacious and for the price of a regular hotel room you have a fabulous 2 bedroom condo with 2 bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge. We would never stay anywhere else as we regard this as our home from home. The location is perfect for all of the theme parks and close to I4 to get you further afield if you wish. Several restaurants are within a few minutes walk and Crossroads at LBV is 20 minutes walk if you want a wider selection. Some have mentioned the busy traffic but to be honest we don't find it any worse than anywhere else in Orlando.It's taken a few years to give a review for the Blue Heron as we wanted to keep it a secret, but now I think the secret is out - The Blue Heron is the best!
