“Great place to stay”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

I researched on line to get the best rate for the best/most convenient place to stay in Orlando. This resort did not disappoint. From phone reservations to an extended late check out (due to late flight out), the staff was extremely pleasant and very accommodating. Most impressively was the fact that this was the latter part of my husband's business trip and the first 4 days was at the Ritz. I was concerned that this resort would be a huge step down. I was very pleasantly surprised. We took our nearly 4 yr old grandson also. The condo type room was spacious which was great for the little one. It was clean and tastefully decorated. Would definitely do again. Stayed in A bldg. Close to pool. Loved it!

Room Tip: try to get a room overlooking the lake so you can view the fireworks at 10 o'clock each night

We stayed at floridays the first week of march.

Pros:

They outweighed the negatives.
The most important things we need were covered: good customer service, parking and internet( although very slow) are included In the resort fee, clean rooms, quiet at night, comfortable beds, full kitchen, nice warm pools, convenient location from disney parks( about 10mn drive). They take the trash and give new towels (if needed) everyday but charge extra fee to clean the whole rooms. The pools are nice and heated. I also like that its pretty close to a good Japanese restaurant and pizzeria.

Cons are:
We stayed in the building E on the ground floor. Our phone signal was very bad and we weren't able to use our cell phones the entire week. Also their wifi was very slow. My husband brought his own
So we were covered but otherwise, it would have taken us hours just to buy the parking tickets for Disney. This would have been a big deal had we not brought our own, since we really wanted to hit the park as early as we could.

The hallway floor was extremely dirty. There were coffee spills all over the floor and they were left there to dry for days. It was a bit gross-and very eye- sore.

The palm cafe is so- so. The drinks were awesome. I got pina coladas and they were good. We got those fish tacos and they were kind of bland.

Almost all staff members were friendly except one who was doing a night shift. We got home from
Disney around 1130pm and realized we misplaced our parking permit that was supposed to be displayed on the front windshield. We called the front desk and the lady there told us In a not so friendly tone that one of us had to go to their main building to get one or else our may be towed. I ended up negotiating with her on the phone and it was midnight. Just thought it was unnecessary. I called the manager who was very nice the next morning and she said they should have be been able to either stop by our room or just wait for the next morning.

They do provide free shuttle to Disney. When we were there, the bus schedule was not flexible. They drop off and pick up twice a day so if you have last minute change of plan, you would have to get another form of transportation. I strongly recommend you rent a car especially if you have kids or people with special needs. The bus doesn't pick up until later in the day.

So in all, we enjoyed our stay at Floridays. It wasn't fancy but met our family needs without sacrificing quality.

I traveled to Orlando with a group of 7, including 3 teenagers. I have been to the Orlando area more than 15 times in recent years and have stayed at number of different places. I booked Floridays based on the fact that I was looking for a 3 bedroom unit and it was rated the best family resort in the country by tripadvisor. Based on this rating I had high expectations. While I am not difficult to please my expecations of being at the "best family resort" we not met. On the positive side we had a three bedroom unit that was very nice. It was well laid out, spacious enough for the seven of us and very well maintained by staff during our entire visit. Ever staff member we interacted with, especially those at the front desk, were very pleasant and helpful. They were a pleasure to deal with. We ate at the resort restaurant once and found the food to be very good and reasonably priced. The resort in located in nice spot for easy access to many of the Orlando attractions. It is located off of Fenton St which seems to nave been recently extended. This provided an easy way to get to Downtown Disney and Universal and avoid a lot of traffic.

Our unit was in building F which was the farthest from the main lobby and largest pool area. There was very little green space between our unit and the main area of the resort. Just a maze of parking lots and speed bumps. We were on the 4th floor and had a view of a adjoining parking lot. I recognize not every room will come with a nice view but since I had booked the reservation several months prior to our March arrival I would have thought we would have been placed in a better location on the property. Anyone who comes here with with small children should be aware the resort isn't very well laid out and there are a few buildings that are a substantial.distance from the main areas.

While I would consider staying here again I would do so with the knowledge that I was going to a little above average nice place, with good friendly staff and good service, good location but also clearly "OVERRATED" by tripadvisor as the best family resort in the country. .

Room Tip: If you don't want a long walk through parking lots request a unit that is not in buildings E or...

We appreciate you choosing Floridays and taking the time to share your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed the layout and size of the three-bedroom suite. It is also excellent to know that you experienced friendly service throughout your entire stay. Thank you for also commenting on the great food options served at our cafe. We do apologize that you were not satisfied with the location of your suite. Please know that suite locations are not assigned until you arrive on property, based on availability at that time. We ask guests to provide any requests they may have so we know if they have a preference. Many guests actually prefer being in the buildings towards the back of the property as they are closer to our second pool and overlook the peaceful ponds. We hope that you will consider staying with us in the future so that we can do our best to place you in a suite in an area that you prefer. We thank you for all of your feedback and hope to welcome you back again in the future.

My family (my husband and I and our 2 boys 5 & 7) stayed at this resort March 1-8.
I did my research on the resort prior to booking and was was very pleased when we arrived.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite in building E (far from main lobby & pool) overlooking the pond. It was beautiful. The condo was very spacious and it was nice to relax on the couch in the living room once the kids were tucked into bed. Great room layouts.
Service was great. The pool was fantastic...the kids loved it and the food and drinks at the pool bar were great!
The location is very close to the vineland premium outlets (2 min drive) and approx 15 mins to the disney theme parks. I would definately return to this resort and would highly recommend it to others.

We spent the last two nights at the Floridays Resort in Orlando... what a pleasure it was!! Check in/out was fast, the room was beautifully clean, and the two bedroom suite was perfect for our short stay! Although we played at Sea World during most of our time in town, we plan to visit again when we have more time to take advantage of the pool and kiddie water/sand play areas. The cafe was conveniently located--we enjoyed breakfast as well as a few late night snacks. The Keurig machine in the suite was a nice touch as well. Thank you, Floridays Resort, for such a wonderful two-night stay. We will see you again soon!!

I stayed here with my two kids, ages 5 and 7. We all loved it. Staff was friendly and helpful, especially Drew and all of the concierge workers that helped me schedule shuttles and plan our day. Pool was beautiful! Room was beautiful, spacious, and loved the nice kitchen and washer/dryer combo. Would definitely stay here again!
