“Great location and lovely room!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We stayed at the Blue Heron for 2 weeks in late May this year with our 2 pre school children. The room was exactly what we needed, plenty of space, two bathrooms with baths, washer and dryer ( a god send with 2 small messy boys!), a very well equipt and functional kitchen and a beautiful view of Lake Bryan. The staff were lovely and helpful at check in and out and we used the onsite ticket agent for Disney tickets which were good value. The swimming pools were lovely and the decks out over the lake made for a lovely walk. Ideally situated for both Disney and Sea World parks aswell as plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. We would certainly consider for our next visit.

The propriety was well located close to Disney and Sea World parc.
It clean but it start to miss a little love and maintenance.
We were missing few thinngs from the kitchen inventory but it was not really an issue for us. I call the front desk to let them know to make sure that they will not charge those items to me. They told me that they wont charge them to me and also propose to replace those items. I refuse because we were goin out and I didnt want to wait for them.
The sofa bed was missing 5 springs on the trampoline that hold the matress make it un confortable. We had problem with our both showers. 1 was the shower head that was spraying on the ceiling because of a misplaced gasket. The other one was loosing the bath nozzle when we put the shower on. I did retighten the screw that was holding it.
The pool was clean. It was not a problem to park the car.
We generally enjoy our vacations over there.

My family (of 7) stayed at the Blue Heron Beach Resort in the 3 bedroom Penthouse Suite for 4 nights and had the time of our lives. The management team was friendly and helpful - the room was beyond our expectations, very spacious and CLEAN!! Very close to the parks (plus terrific restaurants) - beautiful swimming pool... just can't brag enough. The view from the balcony was a million dollar view. We have stayed everywhere from Pop Century to Disney Yacht club - not one of them beats this hotel when it comes to hospitality, efficiency, cleanliness and the location. Having a living room and kitchen saved the day!! I can't wait to plan our next trip!

stayed here for 2 weeks, 2adults and 2 teenagers and we had a 2 bedroomed unit in tower 2 on the 15th floor, views were very good over the lake and beyond (could see SeaWorld and even the coasters at universal in the very distance) the location is very good, less than a 1 minute drive (if not much traffic and traffic lights on your side) to get onto the I4, from there everywhere accessible within 10mins, the room was large, well furnished, clean and very comfortable, no complaints there at all. overall really liked this place and would recommend it to anyone staying in Orlando for the theme parks and shopping, the only gripe I had and for me it was a major issue, although it may not matter to some people, was the lack of sunbeds round the pool, what ever time we seemed to go down on different days we could never get more than 1 or sometimes 2 beds for the four of us, and then that was only by going round asking people if they could spare one, then dragging it round the pool to where there maybe another, this for me was a pain as l love to lay round the pool and read my book, and very often this wasn't possible. I do think for 2 large tower hotels there should be far more sunbeds, and there was plenty of room to put them so I can't see why this hasn't been addressed.

Thank you for sharing your experience to other travelers who are wanting to make a reservation at the Blue Heron Beach Resort. Your review is greatly appreciated and well stated. .
I have passed along your comments regarding the sunbeds to Provident, who manages The HOA and thus the pool area. They are aware of this problem and we do hope it will be resolved for our guests in the very near future.
I am glad you enjoyed everything that we have to offer and do hope we will see you back again soon.

We stayed for 7 nights and we loved it. Plenty of room for my family of five. We stayed on the 7th floor and it overlooked Lake Bryan and it was a beautiful view. It has a full kitchen and washer and dryer. I was able to go to Wal-Mart and buy groceries for the week and It helped that I was able to do our laundry throughout the week so when I got home I didn't have to worry about being overwhelmed with laundry. There were plenty of places to eat nearby which made it convenient. The Disney attractions were not far from the resort. The only complaints I have is the internet was very very slow and the king size bed was a little uncomfortable, but after being at the parks all day, that really didn't matter. All in all this was a great place to stay and I would definitely come back to this resort for our next vacation....

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the lake are awesome!!

Just returned today after spending two weeks at the Blue Heron and had a brilliant time. When we first arrived I thought the place needed a lick of paint but once inside the rooms were excellent. We were on the 18th floor in tower 2, a fantastic room with a brilliant view of the lake and pools. We had booked the two bedroom suite but also had an alcove with bunk beds so there was loads of room. The quality of the furniture was excellent as I had stayed in condos before in Florida and the furniture was dated. The beds were comfortable especially the master bedroom with a memory foam matress and jacuzzi bath. The pools were lovely howeber not enough sun beds in the afternoon and hotel should invest in more beds and umbrellas. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a few nights of heavy rain and lightening so it was great to be able to rent a dvd from the machine in reception for approximately £1.20 per night. The dollar tree shop and CiCi's pizza next door were very handy. The cleaners on clean once per week but they did a good job. Only small complaint was that the tvs were very small. Great location and fantastic view of the fireworks on the fourth of July. If we return to Florida I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Higher level floors get great views of the fireworks display and the lfts were never too busy so don...
