“Great location and accommodation”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

This was our first visit to Orlando with our two children 13 & 9. The location of Floridays is excellent - 5 mins to Seaworld, Aquatica and the fantastic discovery cove - 15 mins from all Disney - 15 mins from Universal and Wet n wild - 1 hour from Kennedy space centre and 70 mins to Busch Gardens plus only 15 mins to orlando international airport. The accommodation worked brilliantly for our family - spacious, clean, kitchen facilities, good sized bathrooms, really comfy large beds and nice balcony which overlooked the pool. Bar staff were great, as was the cafe - kids loved the pool (endless clean towels), and the games room. Numerous great restaurants along International Drive to try. Would highly recommend - we loved it. Thanks Floridays.

Room Tip: We stayed in block B - nice and close to facilities and looking over the pool. Be prepared for a lit...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit for 5 nights. The resort is more akin to an apartment complex. Our unit was a good size and quiet. Unfortunately, the wi-fi service (which we were charged for as part of a resort fee) was spotty at best. I contacted the front desk about this and was told an engineer would work on it but it never improved.

The decor and furniture was dated and there was a little mildew in our shower. Several GFCI outlets in our kitchen were tripped and would not reset, indicating significant electrical issues.

The main pool was having construction work done but there was a 2nd, smaller pool nearer to our room available. It also appears that they were conducting some needed renovation work on one of the other buildings.

We ordered food at the pool bar. The Bruscheta was inedible. Otherwise the food, drinks and service were decent.

Nothing really bad about our stay but nothing that would make me come back either. As a previous reviewer put it, we have stayed at other properties in the area which are better but to not receive the consistently great reviews that this hotel does. I wonder why. In any case, I think there are better options nearby at a similar price.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and provide your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the size of your suite.

This is part of our efforts to provide our guests with the best possible experience and we anticipate it will be completed soon. We are also sincerely sorry that one of your food items was not served as it should have been. We have passed on all of your comments to the appropriate departments and they are being addressed internally. Please know that the experience you had is unusual. We have been named the #1 Family Resort in the United States by TripAdvisor due to the large amount of genuine, positive reviews that we receive. We hope that you will accept our apologies and consider staying with us again so that we can show you the excellent experience that we normally provide.

This was our second stay at Floridays and we were just as happy as the first time. It's a 10-15 minute drive to the Disney parks (depending which one you are heading to) and you are on the Tampa side of Orlando, so makes for an easier trip to Busch Gardens (we got there in 70 minutes). The rooms are clean, the service attentive and the pool provides an awesome time for the kids on a day away from the parks. Only downside of our stay was some noise at night (we had a pool view room and you can hear the folks at the bar/restaurant at times given how well the sound carries over the water). Also, since the two years of our first stay, they still don't have the main entrance fixed off of International Drive (though it looks to be close)... not a huge deal so long as you know to enter the property right after the Benihana. The "premium outlet" mall is close by (2 minute drive), but there were fewer deals to be had this time than on our visit two years ago.

Room Tip: Avoid pool view rooms for the noise at night.

Thank you for mentioning the great service that you received as well as how much you and your family enjoyed the pool area. We do apologize that the main entrance construction is not complete.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope to welcome you back again for a third visit!

Our recent stay at the Floridays was incredible. We were a party of 9 with 5 children, we stayed in a three bedroom suite. Our room was beautiful, clean with plenty of room for everyone. The staff were amazing, everyone very friendly and knowledgable. All the parks were close by. We walked frequently to Publix to get groceries, it was 2 min walk from the resort. The food and drink at the resort was great! We fed the kids frequently from the marketplace. It was easy and convenient. Drinks poolside were perfect! The heaters at the bar were a plus, it was chilly at night. Entertainment at the resort was also great! We caught an acoustic show Saturday night that was incredible. Activities for the kids were awesome, movies by the pool, arts and crafts and great music playing all day long! Loved it here, we will be back!!!

A wonderful place to check in after a long day of travel. Not your ordinary "hotel" room. All services were excellent. Available shuttle worked flawlessly! What a great place for our family. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: The three bedroom suite is excellent. The size is perfect.

The resort and staff were great. The room layouts were nice as we were able to put our 2 year old to bed while we stayed up to enjoy the evening (difficult to do in a regular hotel room where the tv and beds are all in the same room). In addition, the kitchen was well stock with all the supplies we need to make breakfast each morning helping avoid the need to go out for every meal. The location was great as it was just down the street from Sea World and within 10 minutes of downtown Disney. In addition, there is a grocery store and nice outlet mall within a few blocks of the hotel. I would definately recommend for anyone looking for a comfortable get-away with young children!

Found this resort six or seven years ago when we brought our son and niece for a visit to Universal. Had a blast then and everything was on point. This time we met friends that were In town with little ones doing the Disney and Universal thing. From the minute we checked in, the personnel at the resort were both warm and welcoming. The accommodations were fantastic and more than well appointed as we had everything we needed. I would probably need about 6 pages to gush about this resort, but if you are looking to stay just outside of the parks for an unbelievable deal then this is the place, hands down.

A special mention to our bartenders Shawna and Kaitlyn along with all of the front desk people who made our stay that much more enjoyable. Hope to see you guys next year!
