We have just returned from a 2 wk stay at this hotel,2 adults & a 4yr old in a 1 bed apt,overlooking the main pool.We had no faults with it,spacious clean and ticked all our boxes,we didnt hire a car so the hotel puts on 2 shuttle buses at 8.45 and 9.30 to epcot where u get disney transport to other parks,we got taxis home as return shuttle was too late for my kid 6.30/7.30,downtown disney is a 10$ taxi fare also same to the orlando outlets,2 kiddie pool adult pool and a hottub which is heaven at a busy day!!! We really recommend this hotel and would stay here again on our next trip,have a lovely holiday x

Room Tip: a pool view as the dawn break is beautiful over the lake,also in tower 1 the 1 bed apt doesnt overlook the pool

We are also thrilled that you and your family enjoyed our pool area. Certainly, there is nothing better than to relax by our beautiful pool after a long day at the parks. We are so delighted to be considered your new home when visiting Orlando.

We are happy your family enjoyed having the shuttle to Disney. It is a cost saving amenity for our guests to enjoy!

Thank you once again for choosing our resort and we hope to welcome you and your family back for your next trip to Orlando!

We stayed for 2 days at the Blue Heron and it was fine. The price was very reasonable for a big group. Our check in was smooth and quick. It is only a 1 mile to downtown Disney and we could see it from our balcony on the 15th floor. The view was fantastic overlooking the pool area and the lake. The room was clean and quiet and spacious for 8 people. There is no restaurant on site since each unit has a full kitchen however at the front of the property there are 2 strip malls with 4-5 fast food places to eat like subway sandwiches, dunkin donuts, and cici pizza buffet. There is also mini golf at the front of the property. The kitchen has most all of the basic equipment that you might need. They do provide soap and shampoo. Only downside is for such a nice unit the mattress were pretty awful. I managed for 2 days but I am not sure that I could manage much longer. The mattress were the most thin pitiful mattress with no support the pullout was even worse. Otherwise was a nice stay overall.

Room Tip: I liked the 15th floor as it was quiet.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with the TripAdvisor community. We truly appreciate your comments regarding the amazing value you received during your stay with us. It is fantastic to hear that our suites were comfortable and enjoyable for you and your group. Please accept our apologies that the mattresses were not up to your preferences. Most king rooms do have new mattresses and we also offer mattress toppers for the sofa beds and the king beds if they are not to your liking. I wish we had known so we could have possibly made things more comfortable for you. Nonetheless, we are so pleased that you enjoyed our convenient location nearby the grocery stores, shopping malls, and attractions.
Thank you for your comments. We sincerely hope that you will consider staying with us again when you return to the Orlando area.

Just returned from a 3 week stay at the Blue Heron. We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit on the 12th floor overlooking Lake Bryan. The room was 1st class and the view from the balcony was stunning, especially the sun rise. The whole resort is really well maintained and the room had everything we needed including 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen with a washer & dryer. The staff were always helpful and friendly. We also had a great view of the Disney area (including fireworks) from the front landing just outside our room. We have visited the Orlando area for most years for nearly 30 years and this was one of our best.

Room Tip: As high a floor as possible for great views

My hubby and I have been staying at the BHBR for years now (our most recent stay this past week to celebrate our 30th Anniversary) and it has been and will continue to be OUT ONLY HOTEL OF CHOICE in the LBV/Disney/Orlando area. It is perfect!! The hotel is made up of two towers of huge, beautiful, well-furnished, well-maintained suites with all you'd ever need (including full, glorious kitchens!), has a price that can't be beat, AND, a has BREATHTAKING VIEW that overlooks Disney (the fireworks are AMAZING) - we just CAN'T IMAGINE WHY someone would go anywhere else!! There are 3 pools, a hot tub, boardwalks, a boat dock, and a GORGEOUS VIEW of sunrise over beautiful Lake Bryan! And there's even tropical landscaping to boot! We don't make our statements about our preference for BHBR without facts since we're able to compare BHBR to our previous stays in past years at many Disney hotels (including both Port Orleans properties, Coronado Springs, and the Polynesian Resort), ALL of the LBV Hotel Blvd. properties, as well as places like World Quest, Rosen Shingle Creek/Center/Plaza, The Peabody (now Hyatt), Marriott World Center, and Doubletree. BHBR wins, hands down, in our book every single time!! So, PLEASE, if you plan to visit the Orlando/Disney area, TRY the Blue Heron Beach Resort, you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!! It is perfect for anyone of any age, and a family of any size!! ENJOY!!

Wow what a beautiful resort. We had an excellent one bedroom unit on the first floor - even the first floor had great views of the pool and lake!! The kichen and living area were well maintained and very modern! We had ALL appliances including dishwasher, washing machine, toaster, coffeemaker etc... it was better than home. Four tvs were in the unit and even located in the bunk beds. The washrooms were very large and updated - not to mention spotless!! The hotel lost a few points for water pressure in the showers and from the loud hallways (Mainly because of the wind slamming doors.) The pool was also very clean and large, although the lounge chairs could go - NOT comfortable and very finicky. Overall a wonderful stay at a great price - will definitely return! Only about 5min drive to Downtown Disney, the Premium Outlets and grocery stores. There is a shuttle that runs to Disney World but times are limited.

I am sorry the pool chairs were not as comfortable as your would like. As for the noise, it is unfortunate at times that other guests forget they have neighbors! I do hope this was not too inconvenient for you. I do hope you reported the water pressure issues. Generally if this were to happen when we have a full hotel it can happen on the higher floors19-and above. It is unusual for the 1st floor. Thank you for letting us know.

Thank you once again for recommending us and we look forward to your next visit to our resort!
