Reviewed February 9, 2014

My family and I stayed in this condo late November and I have to say it is the best condo we have stayed at in Orlando. The facilities in the condo were perfect and the beds super comfy. The hot tub and pool literally a 2 minute walk and buses provided to take you to the parks. The information to detail and communication from the owners was top notch and staff on site were excellent, would not hesitate to recommend here to anyone vacationing in Orlando. It was that good we have already booked again for this year.

We stayed in a two bedroom suite and it was very comfortable. When we arrived on Day 1, our request for Bldg B pool or lake view was not honored. Ebony at the front desk was not very accommodating and told us there was nothing they could do about it. We were disappointed as we had read the reviews about the stellar service here. Instead we ended up in Bldg C farther away from the pool and with a view of the branches. We then decided to call the front desk to see if they were willing to move us when a room in Bldg B becomes available but my husband ended up talking to Ebony and again, she wouldn't have it. So we decided to wait until the next morning in hopes that we would get someone who actually cares. Luckily we did (unfortunately forgot her name) and she was able to move us to Bldg B with a lake view that afternoon and even got the change fee waived. Thanks to her and the nice manager, a frustrating start to our vacation subsided.

Aside from that initial incident, the rest of our stay at Floridays was very comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with everything imaginable. The beds were comfortable and the kids loved having their own private room and separate beds. Having separate bathrooms was a BIG plus as not many hotels in the area offer that for the price. I personally wish the decor was a little more up to date, but it wasn't a big deal as the room was very clean. Love the proximity to Publix and restaurants (we usually go to Thai Thani and the steakhouse next door when we are in the area and getting there was ultra convenient).

Sorry to say that the breakfast food was of poor quality so don't set high expectations if you're going have breakfast here. I don't believe they have any real restaurants on site. It's basically a little convenience shop/store that tried to serve breakfast but I couldn't finish my breakfast as it was awful. Appreciated the Starbucks though. And the poolside wings and pizzas were good.

We chose this place over a couple other contenders because we were searching for the following criteria: 1) value, 2) two bathrooms, 3) proximity to Disney, and 4) an attractive kid-friendly pool and game room to keep the kids occupied. Keep in mind that no matter which building you stay in, it's still a good walk to get to the pool. We were there in August and it was a very hot stroll. The other con is that afterwards we found out that the pool area is not non-smoking.. surprising and appalling that an area filled with kids would permit smoking. Due to this, a little apprehensive about staying here again. Supposedly, this is a non-smoking property.

Overall it is a great place to stay for the price. We've been to many upscale hotels in the Miami area so by comparison, the rooms here are not like oohs and aahs but we weren't expecting to be wowed as we just wanted clean and comfortable and this certainly accomplished that. Great vacation at the hotel and Disney parks.

Room Tip: Closing Bldg to pool is Bldg A or B. Lake view is nice because you can feed the ducks and turtles. P...

We went to Floridays for a family vacation. We had a three bedroom unit in the farthest section back.
The room was as I said, just ok. Tidy, but dated. Carpets were stained, furniture was worn and old looking. Our unit overlooked the maid/janitorial building. There was also construction going on directly behind our unit. They would begin very early!
We had to travel by car to the main pool which is understandable for a resort this size. Again, it was ok. Everything like tables, chairs etc. just look old and beat up.
As a frequent traveler to Orlando, my family and I have stayed on many different properties. There are several other resorts ranked lower than this one that I would rank much higher. I really have no explanation for why travelers have rated it so highly.
My advice is keep looking!

Stayed: April 2013

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We appreciate all of your feedback. Please know that we work very hard to continually update our property. There was a renovation done in 2012 and one will be completed again in the near future. We also apologize for the construction noise disturbing you. This was likely the road construction being completed by the county. This is outside of our control but we do apologize for the disturbance. We take all of your comments very seriously and will be addressing them internally. Thank you for choosing Floridays.

I stayed here last Feb. 2013 with my daughter and her two young children. We really enjoyed our stay there. We are going back to Floridays on February 16th. and the only thing I would like to ask for is a room over the pool area. We were in the back building last time and hopefully won't be there again. Because I have asthma, I found that after walking that distance, I had a very hard time breathing. Does anybody know how I can (or if I can) try to get the closer room? I spoke to reservations and they couldn't guarantee it. Also, I guess we missed the activities for the kids last year. Does anybody know what/where they would be?
Any info greatly appreciated. Thx.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. We are so glad that you and your family had a wonderful time and that you plan to come back. Our reservations department gave you correct information that we cannot guarantee room requests, as they are based on availability on the day of your arrival. When you arrive, please let the front desk know of your preference and they will do all that they can. The kids activities are usually around the pool area - you can find a schedule of all activities on our Facebook page as well as on a flyer at the front desk when you arrive. We are looking forward to your arrival.
