“If there's a better home from home, I've yet to find it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed here as a family of four, in a three bedroom apartment. (Apologies for the delay in posting this).

1. Great staff - very helpful at all levels.
2. Clean and well equipped apartments - kitchens, washing machines, multiple TV's, fulled fitted out
3. Space to allow for some personal time with family after days in the theme parks.
4. Good value - if you calculate the cost over the floor space, its well worth it. And the apartments are a good family size, not small and a tight squeeze!
5. Location - Get a rental car with a GPS, makes everything much easier to get around, making your holidays easier.

If you're considering an Orlando Theme park family holiday, stop looking and just book this, you won't regret it.

Dear xoz
What a very nice review...thank you! And reviewing now for a January stay means that we must have made a great impression that lasted! And that’s good to see! Your review touched on all of the wonderful aspects of a Floridays vacation and I am sure many readers will find it helpful. I do hope that if your travel plans bring you back to Orlando that we will see you here again at Floridays being your favorite home-away-from-home! Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.

We reserved online and pre-paid; the price was very good. The suite was large and comfortable. All appliances were in good working order. The staff was friendly, and the maid service was prompt and thorough. We stayed with two grandchildren aged 10 and 12. They enjoyed the pool tremendously, especially since it was never overcrowded in spite of mid 80s temps. The drive to WDW is about 15 minutes, and easy to drive. This was our first trip ( out of 8) to WDW and staying off property. While nothing can really compare with an on-property stay, this was very good, and much more reasonable.

Room Tip: The rooms toward the back are quieter, while still being close to the pool and other facilities.

Dear Homebody44
Thank you for recognizing Floridays great value in your review. It is one topic that many guests positively comment on particularly when comparing the value to on-site Disney and Universal resort hotels. I am pleased that we were able to deliver prompt and friendly service, a clean and enjoyable suite, and a very good vacation experience for you and your family. See you again soon!

We stayed here for 8 nights and were delighted. Close to all the parks. Shuttles to and from Disney were not great -- late one day and driver gave us wrong return time one day. Shuttle to and from Universal great and driver very professional. Upgraded to a 3 bedroom unit which was clean, quiet and in building A so close to pool and shuttle. We liked the fact that Publix was right around the corner as were three really nice, inexpensive restaurants: Q'Kenan (Venezuelan), Tokoyo sushi and grill and Citrus Garden (Chinese). Looking forward to another stay!

Room Tip: Corner suite a good choice.

Dear ssm861
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I am sorry about the service on the shuttles. I will put a call into our transportation providers on Monday to share your comments as their drivers are a direct reflection on Floridays. You are right, just around the corner in Regency Village is a massive Publix supermarket and several good restaurants - all within walking distance. Thank you for noting them in your review. When you return next, a new Brazilian Steakhouse should be open between Publix and Outback Steakhouse. We hope to see you back soon!

Hello fellow Canadian! I was so pleased to hear about your wonderful, or rather AMAZING wedding experience here at Floridays. Also, congratulations are in order as well. I have already passed along your comments to Jamie and her team so we can reinforce such great performance to the service Associates that helped make it all possible. We do hope to see you both back again to celebrate with us in the future. To a wonderful life together!

Dear Robert K
Thank you for sharing your great tip about the 2nd floor balconies. The solid balconies seen to work well when a family with small children wants to leave the patio door open for a bit of time. The solid construction allows some extra peace of mind. If there are any special requests on a reservation, the leadership team reviews these requests each morning and does their best to honor requests when possible. I do beleive that your tip will be helpful for others. Again, thank you.

My first impression and my last impression were the same. This place is fabulous! The two & three bedroom suites are more like condos than hotel rooms. Spotless oven, refrigerator & all the small appliances that you usually have in your own kitchen are there. the beds are comfortable,
the tv's work well & the jacuzzi in the master bath is a bonus. Nothing requested (extra towels, pillows, bath supplies was too much trouble for the staff to provide. One of my favorite things about staying at Floridays was the HVAC system. The units have central air & heat. No noisy window units that blow air on you while you sleep. Last but not least, the manager Wayne was always available and very accommodating, a real gentleman!

Dear Dick D
"Fabulous" works for us! Thank you for making such a bold statement about how your stay was...that means a lot. Our Housekeeping team is the true heroes and heroines when it comes to your first impression upon entering our suites. After 2 - 3 hours of cleaning prior to any arriving guest, what you experienced is exactly what we strive for daily.So glad you enjoyed the peaceful night's sleep due to central air conditioning; it really does make a big difference with comfort. It was certainly our pleasure to help create such a great vacation experience for you and your family. We do hope to see you again soon.

We pre-booked/pre-paid for our suite back in December for travel in March, when we arrived we quickly discovered we had been shoved to the far back of the complex in Building F (right next to the housekeeping facility). We requested another room and were flatly denied - we were told if we wanted a room closer to the main pool we should have requested it. It went downhill from there, everything from having to request T.P. to having the chambermaid bursting in on us while we were checking we had everything before checkout (5 minutes past check out time with the do not disturb ticket in the door) If you do decide to take your chances pre-booking with this "resort" you need REQUEST something close to the pool and MAYBE you will luck out. The front desk staff were rude, the concierge non-committal about ANY answers to our questions. Overall the location is good as long as you don't expect much from the staff. Advise against pre-paying - if we had an out, we definitely would have left then and there and would have easily found other accommodation. Shocking response given there are MANY options for accommodation in Orlando.

Room Tip: Apparently you have to specifically request a unit close to the main pool area or run the risk of be...

Dear BMT_2013
Thank you for taking time to review your recent stay with us. I was saddened, however, to learn that we failed to meet even the most basic of your vacation expectations. It is certainly not the same experience that over 3500 other Trip Advisor community members have enjoyed each and every day at Floridays. In particular, the service you experienced seems well off of our normal levels of engagement and professionalism. As we would like to identify the specifics of your vacation and address them accordingly to avoid recurrence, I sent you a private message via Trip Advisor (click "my account" then "messages" to view) which contains our contact details here at the resort. We very much welcome the opportunity to speaking with you. Again, my thanks.
