“Family holiday Oct 2013”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

We stayed at Floridays for 8 nights. We were in building F on the 2nd floor and had a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment is spacious with 2 full bathrooms (1 with spa bath). Kitchen, dining area and living area. Cookwear was good but could have more plates so don't have to keep putting dishwasher on. The maid service was good and there were plenty of towels. The deck wasn't really usable on account of little biting insects which no doubt get attracted by the nearby lakes. There are 2 pools. One by building E and the main one by building B (which is really like 2 pools) with a sandpit nearby. Great entertainment for kids around the pool. The staff are extremely professional and took every opportunity to assist us. If you want a light bulb replaced they are then within 10 mins. The concierges were extremely helpful. Perfect location and central to all the theme parks. Free shuttles also. Supermarket nearby (2 min drive) and outlet shops. Easy to find using instructions on iPAD and close to major roads but also quiet. Found very good rates on the hotel's website.

Room Tip: We were in building F which we found to be a bit far from the pools. Next time I would go for build...

We stayed at Floridays the last week in October - we are returning guests and were as delighted as usual by this condo hotel : spacious appartements, decorated with taste and recently renovated. Our was extremely clean, smelled fresh and was in working order. The property itself is good both for families with children who can enjoy the activities at the main pool ( really splendid pool) or for people who want more calm and privacy ( there is a second pool in the back without the animation of the main pool, where you can relax in silence if you want a break from the kids).
I really liked the landscaping - Floridays has many trees and the land is very well maintained. Most buildings are facing one of the three lakes of the property and you can have your breakfast looking at birds and families of ducks which I thought was very nice.
As we were travelling with 2 children ages 5 and 11, we enjoyed the activities at the pool. On weekends they have DJ Krisanne who organizes games for kids and she is really good at that. Our 5 years old was the limbo champion for a day and this is something he still remembers ( well... to tell the truth this was his third 'title' but this is still very important when you are 5 years old...) . Also, the handcraft activities with Carolyn were really great and allow children to walk back home with (yet another) souvenir from their vacation, beyond the mouse ears.
They also have a movies at night by the pool once a week - we never attended before, but will give it a try next time.
Regarding dining , there is an onsite meal service with decent food - no need to take the car for a good pizza or chicken wings/quesadillas/burgers. For dining out there is an Outback within almost walking distance, a LongHorn and a Red Lobster about 2-3 miles, and most importantly there is a new Bonefish restaurant 2 mile north where I could eat everyday.
While it is very family oriented, I think Floridays has something for everyone and this is a real strength for the resort.
Right now we hope to come back in March and will stay again at Floridays. We are in Orlando 2-3 times a year and have been coming since 1997, so have seen many hotels and resorts of different budgets - and definitely recommend this one.

Room Tip: rooms in buldings B or D facing the lake are close to the pool and quiet

First impression - the 2 bed suite is bigger than my house!

We came with our 2 kids (3 and 6) and had a great time. They couldn't believe that they had a double bed each, and their own bathroom. Really handy for all the parks, and great pool area, full kitchen and laundry facilities in the room.


One and only criticism (and it may be due to the roadworks and closed junction outside) is that it's tricky to find for the first time when (a) it's dark and (b) you haven't driven on the right side of the road for 8 years. Perhaps you could some landmarks on the website directions? Benihana, or after the 7-eleven when heading south would have helped.


Thanks for a great stay. My 3rd time in Orlando, but I suspect not my last time at Floridays.

Matt, we are so glad that you and your family enjoyed the spacious suites here at Floridays! Thank you for telling us what a great time your kids had. We do apologize that you had a hard time finding the temporary entrance. You are correct that this is due to the construction that is currently being done by the county. This is outside of our control, but we are told it will be completed within the next few months. We are so glad that you plan to return. Please let us know if we can assist you in any way.

I went to the all star sports appartments in florida in 2012 and I had the most fantastic magical time I went to nearly all the parks and my favourite place to be was downtown dsiney the atmosphere was amazing and the American people were just so warm and friendly. the night of the parade was just outstanding with all the floats of every discription and the disney castle was enchanting any one can have the spectacular time just do it cant wait to go back.

This was one of the very few reasonably priced resorts that we researched (via reviews) that did not have bad things said about it and I very happy we tried it out for ourselves. The location was perfect, right in between Sea World and Disney, and just a few minutes from a grocery store and the outlet shopping. There was plenty of room for our family of 4 and the kitchenette was fully equipped and handy for a quick breakfast before we started our busy day. The front desk and concierge were very friendly and helpful. There were a lot of activities offered for the kids as well. Try it out for your family, you won't regret it!

Room Tip: We had a room on the fourth floor in building E and had no problems at all. Actually, housekeeping...

We stayed at this property as part of a United Airlines vacation package a few years ago.

Our 17 year-old daughter was in a national sporting event and we decided to make this into an impromptu two-week vacation as well.

Staying at the condo provides the "at-home" atmosphere you cannot get at any of the chain hotels. The ability to be able to stay in a night or two, have friends over, cook dinner and relax at the pool made this trip even more enjoyable!

We loved the proximity of the property to expressways, shopping and dining. Staff was wonderful and extremely accommodating.

Was great! 2 big bedrooms, 2 bathrooms , kitchenette etc. We especially enjoyed the washing machine and drier as the Florida weather is very hot and humid , and it was a pleasure having clean clothes every day. Just one word of advice: if you would like your room made early it is advisable to request this, otherwise it may only be made later in the day.

Room Tip: Would suggest a room in Building C , which is close enough to the entertainment area and pool, yet a...
