Our party of two adults and three kids aged 7, 8, 10 stayed in a two bedroom suite at Floridays for three nights. Overall, the stay was great. The hotel is located about twenty minutes from the Disney parks which were our destination. The suite was spacious, clean and comfortable. With five people, two bathrooms were appreciated, and the Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries were really nice. Hairdryer in the bathroom too. The granite countertops and artistically folded towels were a nice touch. The flat screen TV and DVD player were a great way to have downtime after a hectic day. The living room had comfortable seating for at least five people. Although grocery shopping and looking at a full kitchen and all that entails didn't put me in a vacation frame of mind, being able to make a fast inexpensive dinner and breakfast with groceries from the near-by Publix was a really good way to avoid a restaurant with three tired, cranky, over-excited kids. The glass dining table seated six. The Starbucks coffee was good too, but not replenished after the first day. The balcony was nice for enjoying morning coffee or evening drinks.
The kids just LOVED this place --- lots of space and three tvs. They especially loved the jacuzzi tub-all three fit in quite nicely at one time. Their only wish was for some green space- the landscaping is lovely, but there is no place to "run around"
The pool area is great..we only got to use it once-make sure you build in some pool time if you stay here-..the kids loved the sprayers..and the pool was deep enough, but not too deep to be intimidating. We didn't get to use the hot tub.
The staff were friendly and helpful-as we were checking out they were trying to accomodate a family that wanted to check in at 9am.
Sounds good, but now the buts....we had requested a pool view room when booking two months earlier and reconfirmed that request a few days before arrival, but we were placed facing a parking lot and near the construction next door at the Fountains because there were no more pool facing rooms left..we weren't in the room that much, but the construction noise started at 6AM one day, 7AM other days, waking us up. If staying here, request to be away from this construction if it is at all possible- it is not Floriday's fault, but it is noisy and aesthetically unappealing.
Our housekeeping service was inconsistent..one day our breakfast dishes were washed but the dish towels were taken and not replaced..another day not all of the pool towels were replaced..having en-suite washer and dryer was great until I went to do a load of laundry at 11pm to find that the provided one use box of detergent was already half used!
The non stick frying pan was pretty scratched up, there was no spatula, and the large element on the stove did not heat up..then the toilet, which was running really slowly from the beginning of our stay , plugged up. Maintenance fixed it quickly. Except for the construction noise, these were all minor inconveniences that we could easily deal with but we wonder about long term quality here.
We would still definitely recommend Floridays for an Orlando vacation. The space, set up and location make for a comfortable and convenient stay and many aspects of the property are lovely. Once the construction next door is completed, it will be even more pleasant.
