We are here for the huge AKC Eukanuba Dog Show. We brought 2 BIG dogs and several friends. Our three bedroom is roomy and comfortable. Full size kitchen is stuffed with everything you need and only three minutes from a Publix grocery store and Walgreens. The staff even gave us poop bags for the dogs (a very thoughtful gift.) We have used the hot spa and pool. Nice safe places to walk yourself or your pet. Even with many dogs in this building it has been quiet and we have all slept well. This is an older complex and does well for families and friends who want to hang out. Only minutes away from Disney, a huge outlet mall, and restaurant row. Stay here and you will be comfortable and have extra money for shopping and adventures!

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room at the end of the hallway.

We love to welcome pets to stay in our pet-friendly buildings here at Floridays! It is so great to know that you and your dog had plenty of room to spread out and to go for walks. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We hope that you will consider staying with us again when you return to the Orlando area.

The staff was very accomodating and friendly. The resort is clean and beautifully decorated and convenient to Publix grocery if you are a family and want to have meals or snacks in the suite. Our suite was a 2BR/2BA with a full kitchen, a large dining room and a small kitchen island with stools, good sized living room and a washer/dryer. The two times we called the front desk for minor issues, staff responded to our requests within 20 minutes. The concierge staff could not have been more help than they were. The Palm Cafe had good food and accommodated any special orders. There are larger restaurants close by if you want a full dinner or more variety. Benihana is next door and there are several smaller restuarants in the shopping center on the other side. The shuttle service was frequent enough for us although we had a couple of days when we would have liked to come back to the room in the afternoon and go back at night. The shuttle drivers were fun and very helpful and always on time. We did not have problems with the towels, bed or water pressure. Absolutely a great value.

Room Tip: Building E was close enough to the lobby so we could cut through the pool area to get there but far...

Linda, well said! We were so happy to accommodate you during your time with us in Orlando. Thank you for mentioning how clean the resort was as well as how much you enjoyed the decor that was just updated in 2012. It is great to know that you were able to try out the fresh food served at the Palm Cafe. Thank you for your review and we hope to welcome you back again soon!

We just returned from a week long stay at Floridays.

Pro's
- the staff is very friendly and accomodating...after reading all the reviews on this site, we asked for a top floor in building "B or C" when we made our reservation and that is exactly what they gave us. Also, we had one issue that we called down about and they were there to fix it in less then 10 minutes.
- the rooms are very large and clean, the full kitchen had everything you need to cook with which was exactly what we were looking for since both of our kids have food allergies and cooking is much easier then eating out.
- We didn't have any noise issues at all that people spoke of...in fact it may have been one of the quieter places I've stayed.
- our kids really enjoyed the pool (which was definitely heated) and poolside activites and games. One night they were showing a movie in the pool...my daughter loved that.
- location was perfect for us...10 minute drive to the disney parks

Con's
- the bed was literally like trying to sleep on a slab on concrete...my husband and I ended up on the pull out couch which wasn't great either. The kids beds were not as bad in their room.
- there is no water pressure in the showers
- 3 of the days we were there, the towels they gave us were either stained or had holes in them.
- they charge you an extra $50 dollars per day when you arrive in case you damage anything...which is fine if that is their policy, but I really feel like that's something that needs to be told to you before you walk in the door at check-in...and it was never mentioned anywhere at anytime before that.

Room Tip: the air conditioner is set to not go below 70 degrees but if you call the front desk they will come...

Jessica, we do appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback to us. It was our pleasure to be able to provide you with your preferred location as well as a suite that provided you with everything you needed. We are also glad that your kids enjoyed the pool and poolside activities. Please accept our apologies that the bed was not up to our normal standards. As you see from your experience in the other bedrooms, this is unusual and we will have our time look into this immediately. We are also sorry that your towels were not up to our usual high standards. These comments have been passed on to the appropriate departments so that they can be addressed.

We sincerely apologize that you were not aware of our incidental hold policy prior to your arrival. We will definitely work together in order to make sure guests know to expect this upon arrival. Thank you for bringing that to our attention. We hope that you will accept our apologies and consider staying with us again when you return to Orlando.

Several of my family members stayed at the Floridays Resort this past Saturday night. What a wonderful surprise this resort was. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer as we absolutely loved this place. There were 5 adults and 2 children and this worked out perfect for us as we had reserved a three bedroom condo. We arrived late on Saturday night as we had spent the entire day in SeaWorld. When we arrived I was met at the front desk by a fantastic Christmas tree and a smiling desk clerk by the name of Johanna. The only problem that we encountered was that it was very dark and not being familiar with the resort, which is huge, we had trouble seeing the letters on the sides of the building. Once we arrived at our building and found our condo we actually got that WOW factor when we opened the door. My daughter asked her husband if they could sell their house and move there. We were off the next morning to see ICE at Gaylord Palms so didn't have much time to explore the facilities but the next time we stay here we will arrange for a longer visit. Being Florida residents that should be in the next couple of months.

We spend 3 weeks this August.The suite in block E was fantastic, it was huge, had a full kitchen,dining room and jacuzzi tub, washing machine drier. The bed are one of the best I ever slept.
Two pools, both great and no too deep - my 6 year old son was happy in either. Block E is next to the small quiet pool. Staff very friendly. Onsite cafe/bar are ok. Pizza is good, so is their cobb salad. The only thing my husband complained about the pools are open until late and it's full of screaming teenagers - according to him not great place for drink at night. I personally enjoyed cocktail or two during the day and didn't have issues with it.

We will definitely return.

The hotel is perfect for families with pets and small children's. The hotel was in a prime location, in the melting pot of Orlando. Sea world was minuted away and the other major theme parks where about 10 to 15 minuted away (Disney World, Epcot, Downtown Disney, Etc). Note legoland was pretty far away, roughly an hour car ride. Near the hotel there were premium outlet malls which we did not have a chance to see but it was interesting nonetheless. We hope to return. The staff was excellent. Suites are really comfortable and clean. Pets in this resort are treated as if they were guests themselves. Seldom do you ever see resorts give pets a bowl, souvenir pet waste bags with clip, and most importantly pet waste bags stations scattered throughout the resort. This hotel is truly the best for families who don't want to leave Fido at home or with someone else. Although do note that you will be placed in the back of the hotel, pretty far away from the lobby and main pool.
