“Excellent in every way.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

From the minute we arrived to the minute we left we found this resort to be excellent. We were greeted on check in by Breanne, who was extremely helpful and very pleasant. She explained all about the facilities and which block we would be in and what a great view we would have. She also said we were on the top floor so our children would not be disturbed too much. Breanne then called the bellman 'Tom' who came in his large golf cart to whisk us off to our block. I had read on here previously that people didn't like being in block E as it was too far away, we found the walk pleasant each day and it certainly isn't too far! The first morning there we had breakfast in the Palm Cafe which was very good. They provide good food all day and we enjoyed a couple of pizzas there too. Our room was beautifully clean and well appointed. Our beds were made each day and we had a full room clean after 7 days. The concierges Wildo and Nalda were incredibly helpful and were always happy and cheerful. Every morning when we left the resort to go to the parks Ray the bellman always wished us a good day with a very happy smile. You can't beat this service. I called down foe help with our bags when we were leaving and Ray turned up in 5 minutes to take the 4 of us and all our luggage to the lobby, thank you Ray, you are a true star. Upon check out Mariam too was what I had become to expect from Floridays, happy, helpful and professional. We would not hesitate in recommending Floridays and will definitely stay here again when we return to Florida. Keep it up. Fantastic. We also found that getting around without a car was pretty easy. The resort has an I Ride Trolley and Lynx stop right outside, and being on the red and green line we worked out that the green line was quicker getting us where we wanted to go. The resort is a 5-10 minute walk from Walgreens and Publix supermarket and only 2 I Ride stop from the Vineland Premium Shopping Outlets.

We liked the spacious rooms and we were allowed to check in several hours early. This meant that we did not get our pick of building and ended up in E. We drove to the pool once when we were there and other times walked as we have young children. We were able to see fireworks from the patio in evenings. Jacuzzi tubs in rooms extremely nice and having a full kitchen is great when travelling with kids. We had plenty of room in a 2 bedroom suite for 3 adults and 2 kids. The pool was great for 2 and 5 year old. The zero entry part was great. Only down side is one kid swimming naked. They need to crack down on that, because I don't want to see little kids naked riding on plastic toys that other kids use. The housecleaning staff stopped 3 times in the two days we were there. I wished they waited a tad longer after knocking before entering (two of the three times entering before I got to the door). The resort fee of $12 is kind of rediculous, because we never used any fantastic benefits, but the rooms were affordable enough that I could overlook that. All in all it was nice and I would likely stay there again.

Room Tip: Didn't mind bldg E as we weren't really doing too much at the facility. It worked fine for...

Dear Joy C
Thank you for taking time to review your stay with us. I am glad to hear we were able to get you checked in early as that's a nice way to start any vacation! Sounds like the in-room Jacuzzi, pool and full kitchen facilities worked out well for you and your family. Sorry about the Housekeeper who jumped the gun on entering your suite; this would be a good time for us to remind our team about such procedures. Thank you for mentioning it. I was pleased to read that you may stay with us again in the future. Until then...be well.

After a long car trip and locking our keys in the car at the rest stop, we finally arrived at the Floridays Resort at 11pm. We were greeted by Robert Yovino who was exemplary. He cheered the kids up giving them stickers and some coins for the game room which they loved. He accommodated all our requests with a smile and we felt he really went above and beyond to make our experience top-notch.

Our room was a very spacious with a full kitchen with dishes and appliances. The master bathroom was enormous with a 2 person Jacuzzi tub which was great after a long day at the parks! The bed was comfortable - the bedding could be more luxurious, but was great for the price of the room. Our only complaint about the room could be that there was no On-Demand or Pay-Per-View. There was a DVD player though, and a small selection of movies was available in the game room. The free parking was great and we never had a problem getting a spot.

The pool area was nice, not huge compared to other places we have stayed, but that can be a plus for some families! The kids LOVED the game room of course which had many arcade style games and an air hockey table.

We never tried the pool-side cafe/bar, but we did visit the Starbucks located in the store where we also had a great experience. While there is not formal restaurant at the resort, it is located on International Drive which is full of great places for dinner or other meals.

All in all we enjoyed our stay at the Floridays and would recommend it as a great value for families.

Room Tip: Request building A or B if you want to be as close as possible to the pool...

Dear Lisa B
What a crazy start to your vacation...WOW! I was pleased to read that Rob came to the rescue, however, with some tokens and stickers; after a rough trip down I am sure the children enjoyed the fun of the game room. I have already passed your comments along to Rob. Thank you for recognizing his efforts. On your next trip be sure to try The Palm Cafe - a new exciting menu may be just around the corner! And I've passed your thoughts about on-demand to our Executive team...a nice idea to consider as we enhance our services for the future. Cannot wait for you to come back and enjoy again!

Our stay was glorious. We stayed in the three bedroom and boy was it big. Us and 4 other families chipped in on one room so we would have enough money to go to gatorland. We had ppl sleeping everywhere. That is the way to do it. And i know what u are thinking how are 15 ppl suppose to shower when there is only two showers. Well us adults took shower and we just let the kids bathe in the pool. The food was OMG The kids loved the chicken tenders. I personally am watching my diet so I just had a Zalad. Hehe. And the atmosphere was out of this world. Very african american friendly. We only saw two white couples the entire time and they were lesbians. I would highly recommend staying here. It is very cheap and though it might not look like the nicest place you will have a good time if u like to get wild

My husband, two 10-year old daughters and I stayed at Floriday's while visiting Disney World / Universal and it worked out really well for us - we'd definitely recommend it for other families visiting the Orlando area.
We didn't have a car so took advantage of the theme park shuttles. We walked to a couple near-by restaurants (Benihana's, Outbacks, Chinese restaurant) and also to the Publix grocery store to pick up supplies.
Here are the things we liked about Floriday's:
- nice, spacious suite (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, living room, laundry facilities)
- nice pool area
- free theme park shuttles
- walking distance to grocery store and some restaurants (although not in the heart of the shopping areas)
- reasonable price for what you get
- our suite was very quiet
- nice to have kitchen to make breakfast in the morning
Here are some opportunities for improvement for Floriday's:
- we were in building E which is a bit of a hike from the pool / reception area (not as bad as we thought it might be but still a hike)
- have to reserve theme park shuttles ahead of time (for both departure / return, not always easy to know your plans for the next day)
- we had to call the concierge a few times and got put on hold each time for quite a while. Not a big deal but we were running out of cell minutes so was a bit stressful.

Dear CanWaldo
I am glad to hear that Floridays fit the bill almost perfectly for your family of 4 on your recent vacation to Orlando. Your review did hit on some great advantages that we have including our proximity to shops and restaurants and our incredible value to comparable resorts. For your next time, place a note in your reservation about building or location preferences; our management team reviews these daily and try our best to accommodate as many as possible. I will certainly see if there is a more efficient way we can handle the volume of call to Concierge so everyone is provided with our world-class service in a timely manner. Thank you for recommending us to other families...we appreciate that.

Floridays is an oasis. After booking horrible accomodations online at another resort, we moved to Floridays after 2 nights. We stayed there last year and loved our rooms. The hotel was very gracious and helpful with our last minute switch. The grounds are beautiful as are the rooms. This resort is well worth the money.

Room Tip: They have 2 and 3 bedroom villas. You can't go wrong with any.

Great place - would go back again. Loved the two bedrooms and two bathrooms! Close to Seaworld and Discovery Cove. Markets and shops close by. Staff very nice. Lots of extras - coffee set up, shampoo and conditioner, and even a packet of laundry detergent so you can do your own laundry in your condo.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet area ask for a building away from the pool.
