“Almost exactly what I was looking for”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

I was looking for a condo like rental where I didn't have to be in a club or try to get sold into purchasing a timeshare on vacation as well as a place that worked well for my family of four (children 7 and 5) and this is exactly what we got.

We stayed from 11/22 - 11/27. The resort was fine. Rooms was clean enough, staff was nice and almost everything was in working order. Remote on TV did not work when we arrived but they fixed it very timely. The front desk also called to make sure it was fixed. We had a two bedroom suite. The kitchen had everything you needed to make a meal for your family or prepare simple snacks. There were three TV's and free Wi-fi in all the buidlings. The king bed was comfortable but the two full size were not the greatest in our rooms. The one thing I did not like was the location of the window to the kids room. It was right outside where you accessed your rooms. Call me paranoid but there is really no security to get into the property nor much to the buildings. I just didn't like it. That is really where it ended though.

They had activities at the pool that my kids loved. I think they were as content with these as going to the parks. Some of the crafts charged a fee of $3 or $5. The pool was great for my kids. Just enough entertain them and not so big I couldn't keep an eye on them.

It was very close to all the main attractions so driving to them was no problem at all really. They do shuttle to some of the attractions. The room came equipped with some things to get you started like coffee, laundry and dishsoap. They had an on hand market for some basics you might need but were really close to a Publix, Walgreens and CVS. I loved having laundry. All our clothes were clean when we came home and I could pack way less. I would just do a load at night while everyone was relaxing from the chaotic day at the parks or in the pool.

Overally our experience was great and my kids loved it. They would ask to go back to our hotel so they could go to the pool. Keep that in mind when planning your trip - need to plan pool only days:)

Room Tip: Pool is open to eleven and appears to be used until then. People on Building B would be affected on...

My husband and I along w/ our 7 year old handicap (wheelchair) daughter stayed at Floridays from 11/10-11/16/13. We arrived at Floridays around 11:30am and were able to check-in to our room in Building A right away. I loved everything about Floridays. Loved that there were 2 bedrooms with plenty of room. Kitchen equipped with everything you would need. Much more room than staying at a Disney hotel. Housekeeping came every day and left fresh towels, toilet paper, shampoo etc. Very close to SeaWorld and only about a 10 min drive to the entrance of the Disney complex. The outlets are right up the street on Vineland as well as Publix grocery, Walgreens, Longhorn Steakhouse, Carrabas Italian Grill, Bahama Breeze and Landrys Seafood to name a few. We loved that the resort had the small Market/Cafe for Starbucks coffee breakfast and lunch etc nd poolside bar. Sandwiches were very good. Pool area is very nice and well maintained. Everyone was very friendly. We cannot figure out how anyone would complain about this resort. We will definately be coming back next year.

Room Tip: Rooms are very spacious. I liked Building A which was close to the reception/pool/marketplace

My family with 2 teenagers and 2 smaller children had plenty of room to spread out in our more than spacious very comfortable 3 bedroom suite after long days at theme parks. The kitchen was well equipped for quick meals and snacks. Great pool and café. Convenient shuttles and a grocery store within walking distance. Arcade with movie rentals for extra entertainment and my husband and I snuck down to the pool side bar one night for a wonderful frozen drink. The Keurig was great - but Starbuck located right in the café was an answered prayer!

We only stayed here one night but we rented a 3 bedroom place last minute so got a 60% off deal, it was a very nice/big complex. The condo was 3 bedrooms one king bed with huge bathroom and 2 other bedrooms with 2 twins in each, very clean and overall very nice. A little dated but did the job perfectly. The ladies were great at check in and we swam in the heated main pool. Lovely place would of been fine to stay longer if we needed to.

My first priority when booking a hotel is cleanliness and this one did NOT disappoint:) It had everything we needed! We booked the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, with living room, dining room, and eat in kitchen, and had plenty of space. It was a pleasure to be provided a starter set for the Keurig, dishwashing liquid, and dishwasher soap but any store or restaurant you may want to try was no more than five minutes away. All of the theme parks are nearby between 5-10 mins away, and the hotel provides a shuttle bus to SeaWorld and Universal. Amenities at the hotel include a family pool with Jacuzzi, a quiet pool for those who want to relax and read, a work out room, game room and restaurant on the grounds. Did I mention the outlet mall being maybe 1 mile away? It is a great value hotel and perfect for a trip to the parks!

Our little family stayed here for 2 nights to visit Discovery Cove after we moved from Disney resort based conference earlier in the week. Floridays was extremely convenient if you need to be in this area, and we felt it was a great value. We spent the same amount here for a 2 bedroom condo for TWO nights that we would've spent for one night to stay on in our Disney "room".
The facilities were very nice and the service at the front desk was excellent. They helped by setting up transportation to the airport for us for our departure, then went above and beyond by helping us obtain a misplaced receipt from the transport company after we had already checked out!
