“The perfect place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2012

As this was our second visit to Floridays we knew what to expect and once again we were not disappointed. From first arrival to checking out we felt like we were home from home. All the hotel staff are so friendly and helpful, and its location makes Floridays the only place in Orlando we would stay.
What more can I say except read the other reviews, they are full of good information and tips for planning your vacation.

Dear spitfireace -- Thanks for coming back to stay with us. And thank you for the nice review. So nice to hear that we made you feel at home with us. That's our goal. And we couldn't ask for more than to be "the only place in Orlando" you'd stay. Come back and see us soon.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2012

My husband's family had already booked a holiday in Florida, and we decided to fly in and join them. I've never been a big fan of Orlando: I don't like crowds, traffic, or heat, and I'm not that keen on the whole Disney franchise either. When I was trying to pick a hotel for us, Floridays' website looked a little dated, but we decided to give it a try. Boy are we glad we did!
The resort is just so pleasant--its several buildings are arranged in such a way that you don't have the impression of a huge overwhelming complex, and each has a central courtyard with healthy mature plantings that contribute to an atmosphere of timelessness and tranquillity. The three of us shared a two-bedroom suite with plenty of room for privacy or sharing--a living room, a dining table as well as the breakfast bar in the thoroughly equipped kitchen, and a balcony overlooking a pond with a fountain.
When we checked in, we discovered that we had inadvertently reserved two rooms, but the charming and professional Gabriel corrected that without batting an eyelash. He asked about preferences and was very helpful. There is lots of free parking and several restaurants within a hundred yards, yet the resort does feel secluded and quiet.
The pool is so lovely, with handsome landscaping, convenient restrooms, and plentiful towels. It has a walk- or roll-in ramp and lots of fixtures to spray and splash; when my daughter and I decided we preferred not to enjoy the DJ who appeared (with kid-friendly music), we walked a few buildings back and enjoyed the resort's second, smaller pool--with no bar, it was nearly empty, so we were free to enjoy the birdsong and swim at our leisure.
The onsite restaurant is more of a cafe, with a very limited menu, but it also functions as a small shop, offering thoughtful items like sunscreen, hats, and Keurig pods, so you really could enjoy a long weekend here without ever needing to leave the property.
In short, although Floridays offers easy quick access to all Orlando's popular attractions, it can also provide a delightful holiday away from them all.

Room Tip: If you plan to spend a lot of time on-property, ask to be near the pool. If quiet is more important...

Dear PoorWayfarinStranger -- How proud we are that we've turned you into an Orlando (not to mention, Floridays) fan. We're sorry the website looked dated to you. (We're actually doing an update in the next month or 2, so it will be VERY fresh.) Not everybody recognizes the nice, lush courtyard of each building. We work hard to keep that looking nice. Thanks for the nice words about Gabriel. He's part of our Quality Service Team, and emulates the outstanding Hospitality we extend to all our guests. And you were wise to take advantage of our quiet pool, when you were looking for an alternative to all the fun & games of the main pool. Now that you've seen another side of Orlando, we hope to see you back soon. We can't wait.

Dear Mike V -- Thanks for sharing your experience here on TripAdvisor. And what a wonderful story. I'm sure you see challenges with your son's wheelchair on a regular basis, but we're quite pleased that we were able to accommodate everything, and that you and your son had a great time. It was our sincere pleasure to be able to fix the stuck wheelchair. We couldn't be happier to help create those lifetime memories for your family. Come back soon, and we'll create even more.

Room Details:
- We had a 3 bedroom suite 2 bathroom.
- 6 adults 1 child
- 5 Day stay
- Fully equipped kitchen washer/dryer dishwasher.
- Bathroom had a double sink vanity and the other a Jacuzzi.

I was very impressed with our hotel room; it was very modern, clean and comfortable. The rooms have central air, balcony and are newly remodeled.

The main pool: Best pool I've seen in any hotel Ive stayed at. It is very kid friendly, my son loved it. (Goes from 0ft to 5 ft)

The restaurant: Good food. However, they run at a southern pace so, order 20 min before you intend to pick up. We did not order room service / delivery. Prices are reasonable average for a touristic area.

Game Room: Average has Air Hockey, price games about 10-15 games.(No pool table)

Bar: The bartenders where always friendly, they have a large variety of liquor and if you feel like having a certain drink for example something with Mango, they have a book which gives you all of the options. (You must request the book)

Room Service: Always seem to be later in the afternoon, so with a large getting fresh towels where a challenge.

Overall: Quiet, friendly, centrally located and comfortable. I would stay again for sure.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days and everything was fine. We went to a 2 bedroom department and really was very spacious. . The principal bedroom has a jacuzzi !! Amazing. It´s located 10 minutes to Disney´s Parks. Perfect for a family of 5.

Room Tip: If you stay in Block A , the pool is nearest than in other Blocks.

We stayed at this resort for 9 days and really enjoyed it. Our room was nice. Very spacious and comfy. We stayed in block A which was good as we were right near the pool and the i ride bus stop. The staff were so friendly and the lady on the consiarge desk is very helpful and books up the trips for you. The pool is a good size and thre is a reasturent right next to it. There is an outlet mc donalds , steak house and a publix just up the road We would stay here again if we came back to Florida

Followed an indication of a relative to get to this resort, and it was worth every penny. Very nice location, everything perfectly clean, well-equiped kitchen. We stayed in buildong D, away from pool so no noise came to our ears. Service is fantastic, all employees very kind and guest services promptly fulfilled our requests. Only negative point I remember was that our kid could not watch a DVD because something was wrong with cabling and signal did not go through. Apart from that, excellent place!
