It was my second stay, and I have to say everything was flawless.
Room big and clean, staff couldn't have been more gracious and helpful.
Hotel perfectly located, closed enough form some parks and malls.
We will be back for sure.
Well done Floridays.

OK, I love this resort, the suites are huge. We just got back from the Disney 1/2 Marathon and it was nice after the race to head back to the hotel and hop in the Jacuzzi. Nice staff. The pool is a bit chilly but hot tub and arcade make up for it.

Room Tip: All the units and huge. splurge!

Dear Sara B -- Thanks for the review, and happy that we could offer you a great accommodation after your marathon. Yes, the Jacuzzi would be the PERFECT place to be. Hope to see you back soon, maybe before next year's marathon.

We booked only two nights because I'm a clean freak and didn't want to stay longer if it did not meet my approval. Well it did!!! Upon entering it smelled great everything was is great condition and worked. We booked the 3 bedroom unit and it was so nice to have the space for our grandchildren to play. We loved it so much we stayed another 2 nights, everyone we had contact with at the front desk went out of their way to help and they where VERY friendly!!! Only one bad thing did happen when we where packing up we moved the planter by the TV checking for toys and two little roaches came running out. Glad it happened when we where leaving! We never saw any roaches prior to this and I even checked around because one review did mention seeing some. So its hard to tell if this is a ongoing problem or just a fact of life when so many people coming and going there is bound to be some insects entering. The front desk did appreciate us telling them and said it would be taken care of prior to any other guest entering.

Dear CTAMPA -- Thanks for the review. Your praise regarding cleanliness means even more coming from a self-proclaimed "clean freak." How great that we passed the test! That's our goal. And happy that our staff was nice and friendly to you. I apologize for the bugs you found. We work diligently to keep them out, and mostly we're successful. But, in Florida, they are pretty common, as I'm sure you know being from Tampa. Thanks for not holding that against us. I'm sure that, after you mentioned it at the Front Desk, someone went to the suite and took steps to ensure no other critters would come back. See you back with us soon, I hope.

This is my third stay in this resort so I am not sure what to add and i will repeat myself : excellent location, great and extremely spacious apartments ( enjoyed the jaccuzzi inside the bathroom for the first time,that was great!). Also they just renovated all rooms and the resort rooms are like new - I like the smell of brand new rooms.
The place is perfect for families and although I regularly go to Orlando since 1997, I have never found another place like this.

Room Tip: rooms in buildins B and D, facing the lakes, are the best and closest to the pool

We stayed here with our 2 small children as part of our holiday in Florida. The apt itself is very spacious and is great value for money. The kitchen is well stocked so you can easily buy food in the supermarket and cook if needs be.

We stayed in and around the time that hurricane sandy was off the east coast, so we got the tail of the cold weather that was generated by this, which meant that weather was cool enough, too cool to go near the swimming pool.

The DVD ordering machine in the games room is a great idea and we used this a lot. Has a good mix of kids films as well as grown up ones too.

Few negatives about the place.

The hair dryer in the second bathroom caught fire as soon as it was used, which I'm sure you will agree is very dangerous, surely this should be checked by house keeping prior to handover too guests.

Transport back from Disney was disorganised, it was a free for all once the mini van came at the bus parking lot in epcot, which meant that even though we were first in the queue, even with small children, we had to push are way to get in. There were child seats in the mini van but they weren't installed correctly and the driver hadn't a clue how to do this and was going to drive off without our children properly secured until he was told to stop and wait until my wife fixed them up in it.

On the morning of our departure, departure time is clearly stated as 11am, we had a maid knocking on the door asking about room service at 9am, now firstly why would we need room service on the day of our departure and secondly she banged so hard that she woke us all up, which after the long day at Disney the day before is the last thing we needed. This is obviously a tactic too make sure you are up and getting ready to leave, but if it was after 11 and you were still in the apartment then a knock on the door would be fair enough.

Again at 10:30 there was another knock by a lady with a clip board asking what time were we leaving the apartment, now this was boarding on harassment so she was told in no uncertain terms that we would be out when we were out.

For people staying in Orlando I would recommend this place but they would need to get there house keeping in order and stop harassing people prior to their expected time of check out.

Dear BudEire -- Thanks for the review, and I'm pleased that you saw we were a good value for money. However I am SO sorry about your experience with the hairdryer. That is very unusual. I hope you were able to request a replacement, and that we were able to take care of it quickly. I've advised our Director of Housekeeping about your experience with the housekeepers, and he will make sure some additional coaching is done with his staff. And I apologize for your experience with the Disney shuttle. We seldom hear concerns about these shuttles, so we'll be sure to look into this challenge right away. And, after all that, I am so pleased that you recognize the positives and will recommend our resort. I appreciate that a lot. Please come back and visit again, and we'll be sure to raise your experience to a higher level.

This hotel is by far the best value and is the nicest resort in the area. Everyone is friendly and helpful and the room is always clean and ready when we arrive. The beds are also the most comfortable beds around. My daughter and i came into town to go shopping and spend some mother/daughter time. The pool is amazing and all ages can enjoy just hanging out. There are also shuttles and trolleys available to take you to the outlet malls, etc. I have been to this hotel many times and always look forward to coming back.
