My review of Blue Heron Beach Resort is a mixed one. Here are my pros and cons to consider for travelers and management: Pros -FANTASTIC location just outside entrance to Disney, close to Seaworld (10-15 mins depending on traffic, easy drive from airport either north or south route (we preferred south) -Close to lots of restaurants at Disney springs, tons...

The Blue Herron was reasonably priced suite with nice amenities in a secure building, but it was very poorly cleaned. There was a yellowish spill on the bathroom floor that I hope was a cosmetic product. There was long blond hair all over the bathroom floor and short black ones around the tub. I went and bought cleaner and cleaned...

I had a chance to review the survey that you recently completed. I was concerned to hear about your experience with the cleanliness of your guest room. I would like to take this opportunity to apologize, as that was not the way we typically take care of our guests. We have discussed this topic with the housekeeper who cleaned the...

We stayed on the 9th floor, end suite which gave us 2 balconies for morning and afternoon sun. You could see all the firework shows from the city view balcony. We were high enough up to get a good breeze if both balcony doors were open. We used the pools, hot tub, work-out facilities and the full kitchen and laundry....

Our company takes any bug sightings very serious and we have detailed procedures in taking actions to avoid and eliminating an issue of this kind. Bugs are easy to transport in luggage and often are brought into a hotel by a guest. They are not a reflection of cleanliness. Once the guest sees them and reports it to us ,...

Went to Florida for a week to spend 4 days at Disney and 2 days at the space center. We decided on Blue Heron for the kitchen, location and price. Only bad things I can say is that we could have used a blind in the bedroom and I didn't realize the shuttle had a set schedule. Also to note...

My family of 4 had a wonderful stay here. I mostly enjoyed the view from the balcony. I could watch the kids swim during the day and at night the lights were unbelievable. I was also happy with the location, not far to where ever you wanted to go.
