We saw a lot of really good ratings for this resort and we were not disappointed. For an unbelievably low price we had a three bedroom, two bath unit with a kitchen, dining room, living room, balcony, and washer dryer combo. There was a king sized bed in the master bedroom with a large Jacuzzi and walk-in shower in the master bath. There were two double beds and a TV in each of the other two rooms. The kitchen was very well equipped, and since it was just after the holidays, my wife was even able to make a complete turkey dinner for her children and grandchildren who we were visiting and had staying with us. It was very clean and everything looked new. Because the weather was very cold, it barely reached 50o, we stayed in our unit for most of the time. But we had plenty of room, and even hooked up a WII game system to the huge flat screen TV.
They had a very nice pool area, that we hear was heated, but we opted not to try out. There was also a game room and exercise area. The property is located between Disney and Universal, and Sea World and Auquatica are right down the road. There is a grocery store right down the road and plenty of shopping and restaurants close by.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. When we called and asked about the internet access they said we could come down at any time and pick up a cable if we needed it. About five minutes later there was a knock on the door and someone was dropping off the cable for us. We had a problem with one of our keycards and a short time later someone was dropping off a new set. We asked for extra towels and again someone else dropped off a stack of extra towels.
Something to keep in mind is that this is a timeshare type condo area. The only thing that housekeeping does daily is make the beds and change out the towels, etc. Although they are selling the unused units off like a hotel room, it is still a timeshare. It is a luxury condo that is normally rented out like a vacation home so you don’t get daily maid service like in a hotel. There is also a daily condo fee that covers the shuttle, parking, internet, etc. (I think it was about $12.00 a day) That is how timeshares work. When I was checking this resort out, I’m pretty sure almost all of the travel sites were pretty clear, and some even highlighted this information at the top of the descriptions. I would hate to think people were giving this resort lower marks because of information they should have been aware of before they even made their reservations.
But even though this is a timeshare location, there was never any high pressure sales pitch forced on us. If we wanted to attend meeting they would take $100.00 off the bill, but we were never harassed about it. We have had to deal with that before and we really appreciated not having that happen here.
We were very pleased with everything and would definitely stay at Floridays again the next time we are in Orlando.
