“Great Family Holiday”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

We stayed here for 5 nights from July 2- 7, we rented a 2 bedroom for my husband and I and our 2 girls. I was happy with how spacious it was and the kitchen had everything we needed. The only thing I thought was wierd was the building does not have a ice machine- you do have a small ice maker in the fridge freezer, but they leave it turned off so it takes a day to have ice and they leave a nice big ice bucket to intice you with but if your looking forward to a nice icey beverage upon arrival- bring your own. The housekeepers could do a better job dusting and getting in the corners but overall the space was clean and comfortable. The only other annoyance was we requested B building as we wanted a close pool room and we booked 5 months in advance and we were given a room in A building- still close to the pool but not what we wanted. The pool was nice and well maintained, they had games going on in the afternoon we did not join in but it looked liked everyone was having fun, my only complaint was the price of drinks at the bar- 2 pina coladas and one kids was 25$ they charged me pretty much the same for the virgin drink. Overall a good choice

Dear k-rizzzle,

Thank you for leaving a review of your stay. And thank you for your frank comments. You're correct, your freezer is the best way to get ice, though we DO sell bagged ice in our Marketplace. We've advised our Housekeeping staff to pay better attention when cleaning. Our standards demand a better quality of cleaning than what you are describing. Sorry we couldn't guarantee your building location. We do accept requests, but rooms aren't assigned until check-in. During busy times, like when you stayed, it's difficult to accommodate all room location requests. But building A is pretty close, too. Thank you for the feedback regarding our drink prices. We are continually evaluating all our pricing strategies, so your comment has been forwarded to our Food & Beverage Director. We look forward to welcoming you back again very soon.

We stayed at Floridays again(I think it was our ninth time) over the fourth of July for nine nights. The one thing that remains consistent at this place is "everything". The room was once again excellent - clean, comfortable, quiet, roomy, etc. The grounds are immaculate and look great with the new addition of the tropical animals on the electrical boxes(talk about paying attention to details). Our special requests were all delivered(thanks Gabriel). Britney at the pool bar continues to be one of the most welcoming and attentive bartenders we have come across. The food prepared in the cafe, as well as the friendly counter service, continues to be well above average. The weekend entertainment poolside is tons of fun, we can't remember the "contest lady's" name, but she is always great! Housekeeping also did a wonderful job, performing every service advertised as well as going above and beyond one day by cleaning up our breakfast dishes left behind one morning as we rushed out the door(I think it was Maria S). We try to remember the names of all the staff we encounter because we realize it is because of them that we are able to have such great vacations in Orlando; I wish we could remember all of them. Even the guy taking out the trash had a smile on his face and gave us a great greeting as we walked by.

Only disappointment we experienced was a rather large group having a family reunion who at times acted like they owned the place(it may have been the first time away from home because this mob was out of control) but the Floriday's staff did everything they could to overcome these inconsiderate yahoos and they were only really present en masse for one afternoon.

Bottom line for us is that Floridays is a fantastic "home" for a great vacation. They deliver everything they promise, the online pictures are reality, and the pride all of their employees take in ensuring a great experience is absolutely unique(we used to think that Disney lead the pack in this respect, but they could take lessons from Floridays). We are looking forward to our next visit to Floridays, which thankfully is located right where it needs to be for our family of 5(kids ages 11,8,6) to have a great time visiting Disney, Sea World, Aquatica, Cocoa Beach etc..

Thanks Floridays!!!!! We hope to see you again soon.

Dear JMacandFamily,

We're proud to be able to be your vacation home. And we're flattered that you feel our customer service exceeds Disney's That is quite a compliment. Thanks for your staff acknowledgements. That means a lot to us and them, and we'll pass that kudos on to their management. Sorry that the reunion group was a bit rowdy, and thank you for your tolerance regarding their "exuberance." We look forward to seeing you for visit #10!

My wife and I along with our two children have just arrived home from a fortnights vacation in floridays. We had an outstanding experience from day one throughout and will definitely return in the future. Special mention to each of the staff for their helpfulness and courtesy notably Wilda on concierge desk. Wilda, Forgive my spelling if incorrect. Towards the end of the holiday I even started enjoying the frog chorus that serenaded us to sleep each evening!!!!!

A top resort, well done.

We, a family of four, stayed at the Floridays resort for fourteen nights in the summer of 2011, and I would recommend it to anyone. This hotel was the best that I have ever stayed in, and I have stayed in a lot of different hotels. I chose this hotel because of all the good reviews, and I surely wasn't disappointed. The rooms were very spacious and clean, and we had no problem with noise or air conditioning at all. The staff were all extremely pleasant and friendly, and they made our stay very enjoyable.

Room Tip: I recommend getting a room quite high up, not only are they quieter and have better views, but the b...

Floridayz was just ok for us. Loved the apartments; they are spacious. However one of the rooms was very noisy and dark. Housekeeping was ok, but just does the beds and new towels. The tower we stayed at is far from the pool. The pool itself is very good. I think we expected way too much for the reviews here, and since we stayed in five different hotels in these holidays we did have a way of comparing. There is no free coffee, no breakfast. The in room service is great, but of course pricey. I just wouldn't come back. Can't really point to what it was, but definitely not my favourite place to stay.

Thank you for sharing your frank opinions with others here on TripAdvisor. We're sorry we were not your favorite place to stay. We do our best to offer friendly service and world-class amenities and services for our guests. Sorry you didn't like our in-room food service. We provide it as a convenience for our guests.

We hope you will consider us during your next Orlando vacation, if you're looking for accommodations and services like ours that match your needs.

Best hotel we ever stayed. We stayed at this hotel for a week in July and we were pleased with all aspects of this hotel; from the friendly hotel staff to the comfortable bed, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. This hotel has 2 pools and we used the bigger, family type pool and the kids loved it. We had a 2 bedroom suite that overlooks a lake with water fountain and my kids had fun watching the Ducks and Turtles each morning. This hotel provides you with every amenities you need to feel at home, including utensils if you like to cook. The washer and dryer were a plus but bring your own detergent as they only provide you with a small sample pack of Tide. They also don't replace the coffee but they serve starbuck's at the cafe. Centrally located near grocery store and a mall. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Building D has a wonderful view

Dear flovon,

Thanks for sharing your experience here on TripAdvisor. Glad you had such a good time. I guess the ducks and turtles are an extra "wildlife experience" we hadn't even planned on. And your tips about laundry detergent and coffee (K-cups) is good for those planning their vacation. It was our pleasure to help make you feel at home. Please come back and visit us again soon.

we stayed at the hotel in july for a week it is very clean and tidy. and the kiddy spray pool was very nice but often over crowded. but if you are looking for that hotel/resort feel this is not the place, its fairly new only been in business for 3-4 years so maybe its up and coming. The maids only make the beds daily and leave clean towels they do not do any cleaning and do not leave any cleaning supplies for you to do yourself, so while on vacation you must purchase cleaning supplies or pay extra for them to do heavy cleaning. this hotel is a sea world partner and boldy states it but does not offer any sea world, disney or universal discounts. me and my family have been to florida several times I would recommend Vistana over floridays. I use this site often and after staying there I was surprised that floridays was voted #1.

Room Tip: Vistana was the best so far.

Dear mistab23,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We are concerned with some of your experiences. Just to clarify, we celebrated our 6th birthday this year, but many don't know us, since we're not part of a chain. We try to offer a nice resort feel, with comfortable and fun pool area, Cafe/Marketplace, WiFi, Business Center and Fitness Center. Most guests are happy to have our Housekeepers refresh the rooms daily, with new towels, making the beds and emptying the trash. You are correct about people needing to supply their own dishwasher and laundry detergent; we start our guests off with a small supply, but those who cook and wash clothes, are directed to buy a supply at the Marketplace or nearby Publix. And, just to clarify, we ARE Partner hotels with both Universal and Sea World, and our Concierge does offer tickets at a nice discount. Disney doesn't allow us to discount their tickets. And most of our guests appreciate our scheduled theme park shuttles, included. We appreciate your comments, and hope you will choose to return to stay with us again.
