When I started researching resorts in Orlando, I was surprised to see that the number one rated resort among hundredswas one that I had never heard of, Floridays. My daughter, who is a local, went and checked it out, and reported that it was beautiful and the staff very nice. I was still a little nervous, but we reserved a 2 bedroom for 4 nights between Christmas and New Year and we could not have been happier with our stay. The resort is indeed beautiful, the suites fully and nicely equipped, the staff was very professional and also friendly, every one of them. They either have superb training, or are taken care of very well by management, or both.
The family pool was the highlight of the stay for us-we did not visit the theme parks, so the pool was our recreation for 2 days. It was perfect for our 5 and 4 year old granchildren, and we enjoyed the poolside cafe. The pool area was clean, tons of towels available, poolside bar. Everything was thought of. There was not a full service restaurant, but we were so tired and with little kids we did not feel like going out a couple of nights. We ordered from the onsite cafe/market and it was great. The only small thing that I can quibble about, is that I wish there was a playground on the property. One of the days it was much too cold to swim, but we wanted to do something with the kids. A little play area would be nice. Of course, most people who are going to Orlando are headed to the the theme parks and don't need a playground.
I would definitely recommend the Floridays for a family that wants to be near the theme parks and all the amenities of International Drive. Comfortable, quiet and luxurious rooms, super friendly and efficient staff, and almost unbelievable value. You can't beat it.
