My husband and I had planned for a year a trip to Cancun, Mexico. Hurricane Paula forced us to cancel two hours before our flight. Upset about not going to the luxurious hotel we had reserved, we started looking for a place to go to get away as we had both taken vacation for the week. We found Blue Heron Beach Resort in Orlando. My husband called to see if they had any vacancies. He spoke with Wendy, he explained our bad news and that his trip was to celebrate our 25th Wedding anniversary. After the long drive to Orlando we arrived to Blue Heron went to our room. There waiting for us was a card and two glasses. The outside of the card said " Champagne is in the fridge Happy Anniversary" Inside the card said We know it is not Cancun but we are glad you are here, enjoy your stay" I think this wonderful lady took it upon herself to try to make up for us missing our dream vacation. Needless to say I just cried! It was really so nice of her to think of us that way. We never met her but I left her a card when we checked out to let her know how much we appreciated it.
Blue Heron Beach Resort was really nice. It is located close to everything. The pool area is nice too!
