We stayed here for 12 nights in first 2 weeks of October 2012. Floridays is close to all the attractions but still in a quiet and more "classier" area of International Drive. Publix, Premium Outlets and a 7Eleven are literally a stones throw away. Staff were very friendly and helpful especially Wayne on reception who checked us in quickly and efficiently. I had requested beforehand for a high floor which was honoured and we were placed in building F on the 5th floor. View from room was lovely and overlooked the small lake and quiet pool area. The room itself was very clean and was more than ideal for our needs. My son had a massive double bedroom to himself with TV and closet. Kitchen includes huge fridge freezer, microwave, cooker, kettle, coffee maker, waste disposal unit, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer PLUS every utensil you can think of! There is a large dining area with a dining table to sit 6 and a large lounge area with flat screen LCD tv. The master bedroom is again big with a huge bed! Unsure of the size but it fitted 4 pillows across lengthways so that gives you an idea! The big bonus for me was the free wi-fi which was pretty speedy plus the two bathrooms. One smaller next to the double bedroom and the en-suite bathroom which connects to the master suite. It included a jacuzzi and walk in shower plus a closet (which includes the safe) and plenty of cupboard space. Balcony was of a good size and included two chairs and glass topped table and an overhead fan. Rooms were attended to daily, beds made, trash emptied and fresh towels left - the house keepers were pleasant and friendly. We had a main room clean on the Saturday of our stay where sheets were replaced and a full clean of the suite was done.
Normally I sleep badly in hotels due to the noise levels but our building quiet and far away from the road. I slept like a log every night! You could occasionally hear people above you but in hotels you cannot eliminate all noise and it certainly did not stop me from sleeping. There is currently construction going on to the west side of the complex but again this did not present a noise problem to us during our stay.
We enjoyed the pool, bar and cafe areas especially the quiet pool which we had to ourselves every time we visited it. Like the main pool it has a small spa area which is great to use after a long day in the parks. The main pool always seemed 'busy' but not to the point that it was unpleasant to use and sit by. It did seem a lot busier in the evenings though.
We only had two small issues during our stay. One day we were left no clean towels and had to call down for them but they were sent up within 30 minutes, also our Jacuzzi stopped working! These issues were addressed promptly although the Jacuzzi never did get fixed right :(
All in all we loved our stay at Floridays and would certainly stay here again! Its a great size for families and is close to all the attractions and amenities.
