“Pity about the fire alarm”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We had a two bedroom suite for a few days - v. close to all the attractions. The resort is good and the pool is good too. Our only problem was that the fire alarm kept going off in our building (bldg F) so that was a pain, esp. at 3am in the morning.

Overall staff were great and we enjoyed it as a base

Thanks for choosing Floridays! We were so glad to be your "base" while you visited Orlando. Thanks for mentioning the great experiences you had with our staff. We really apologize that the fire alarm inconvenienced you and your family. Unfortunately, this is something that occurred due to reasons beyond our control. We do apologize for this. We hope that should your travels bring you back to Orlando, you will choose to come back to Floridays.

We rented a 3 bedroom suite during our first trip to Orlando.
It was all adults only since we drove from Miami for a road trip.
Decided to book our stay here since it had great reviews.
And boy were people right! The hotel looked very nice as we approached it and even had a Benihana restaurant next door !! Like walking distance !
The rooms were very nice and had all the perks of being home as it included a living room, kitchen and washer and dryer.
I had the Master bedroom and the room was very relaxing!

The resort is very family oriented as the pool had everything for kids to play with.
The hotel had shuttle buses to take us to the parks (Universal Studios) is where we went.
Which was great because parking is a hassle at the parks.
There is even a game room, bar for drinks near pool area and a café for food and they make Starbucks coffee.

Definitely worth going to. This hotel is also near a main grocery store (Publix), Walgreens TGIF, Buffalo wild wings, Dennys, and Outlet shopping (Coach etc).
So your not far from things !!! Hotel is also very close to SeaWorld.

We recently stayed at Floridays for a 14 night break from the UK. There were 9 of us booked into a 3BD apartment. Before the holiday, I was apprehensive on whether it would be spacious enough for the 9 of us but there was no need for me to worry.
We managed perfectly as there was ample room for everyone to be spaced out. Having a TV in each bedroom definitely helped. Also the staff and the service is the best I have experienced. Each time we rang, they cam within 15mins to sort out.
The front desk and concierge service was great too and the icing on the cake for me was Thursday nights where you can watch a film while chilling either in or next to the main pool.
Cannot fault it, it made our trip to Orlando(Disneyworld etc) that bit more special and memorable.
Will definitely book here again.

The staff at Floridays was amicable and courteous. Two staff members consistently went above and beyond my expectations: Ray and Matt, the bell men. They are WONDERFUL. I'm from Ohio and I love them! They always made sure that we never walked anywhere, and drove us to our destinations, and were very cordial.The rooms were always cleaned to perfection. The grounds were always clean. It was in a nice location, and I could get to wherever I wanted to go easily.

We recently spent six nights at Floridays as a family and had a wonderful time. The suites are very spacious and very well maintained, beds were comfortable, and the furniture was like new. Staff was very attentive. Our kids loved the large pool area and there were always chairs available. The air conditioning system worked perfectly - most appreciated in August! We ate several breakfasts at the resort as well - we all loved the french toast and breakfast sandwiches. I would higly recommend this resort for family vacations in Orlando!

Room Tip: Ask for a building close to or adjacent to the pool to keep walking to a minimum.

We stayed at Floridays for four nights, 7/30-8/3. Every time we were out and wanted to go back to the hotel, we kept referring Floridays as going home. We started off with a two bedroom, and before we arrived I noticed that the prices went down. I called up the hotel and they honored the new prices. Then when I noticed the prices going down a second time, I called up and upgraded to a three bedroom. It was myself and husband, and two adult children. We very much loved the room being like it was home. I don't cook when I'm on vacation, but it was nice to have a refrigerator and the publix close by to stock up on water and some food for breakfast and snacks. They also had a washer and dryer which I used. They supply detergent for one wash, but when I went to publix I purchased a small bottle of detergent because I knew I was going to make a few washes. We were in building E top floor and it faced a lake. We never took advantage of the balcony but it was very nice. A lot of people on this site complain that the main pool is far from building E, but it is only a five minute walk. I understand if you have small children, but otherwise it isn't far at all. The other pool is about two minutes away. The reason we used the main pool is because there was more shade in that area and they have a snack and bar area in case you want to purchase something. Overall, if you are looking for a place where you can spread out while on vacation, this is it. For the money, you can't go wrong. The only complaint I would have is that the water pressure in the showers were not that good. But we did have two bathrooms, and the second bathroom had two sinks. Very nice indeed.

Room Tip: Building E is not that far from main pool area as some people on this site have stated.
