“Hmmm...not sure how its rated so high as a family resort”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

This hotel is average at best. We have stayed in a number of places in the Orlando area and choose this place based on the reviews. The hotel is just average and for a "family friendly" resort there was not much to do. There is no playground for the kids, a pool with a small splash area that turned off at one point when we were there and a few water toys that I believe we're purchased by other guests to amuse their children and then left behind. The arcade had a handful of games (most geared toward older kids) and again a few were not operational when we were there. There were no planned children's activities like we have experienced at other resorts in the area and really nothing over the top to warrant a high "family resort" rating. Not sure if they have activities some of the time, since other travellers have mentioned them, but they didn't have any when we were there and we travelled during March Break. Since this is one of the busier times of year, you would think a "family" resort would have some activities planned for the days you aren't at the park.
The rooms were satisfactory and do have the "home like" feel if that's what you are looking for. Nice to have a washer/dryer and full kitchen to use and the rooms had comfortable beds for sleeping. We did have an issue with the plumbing when we were there and had to call down to have it fixed. The first call was at night and after waiting an hour we decided to go to bed and have it looked at in the morning. When we called in the morning, they came right away to fix it.
If you plan on using the wi-fi when you are there you will have to venture down to the cafe. There is only spotty service in the rooms and is not reliable. The cafe has an ok selection and is good if you are looking for a quick bite.
The location of this resort is ideal and located close to the parks and shopping.
Overall, we were disappointed because we were expecting more of a family friendly experience and did not feel Floridays delivered that experience.

We appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback. We would like to thank you
for staying with us. It is great to know that you enjoyed our suites and found our beds to be comfortable. We are also glad that you enjoyed the fully-equipped kitchen as well as our
convenient washer and dryer located in all of the suites. We do apologize for the plumbing item you mentioned, but we are happy to hear that your concern was resolved. Besides our suites, we are pleased that you also enjoyed our central location as well as our
convenient cafe.

Thank you for noting that our suites offered the "home like" feel, as we do strive to make our guests feel at home with us at Floridays. With that being said, we are very sorry that you felt that our resort did not provide you with the experience that you were looking for. We do offer activities that vary throughout the month, like our "dive-in" movie experience where families enjoy a poolside movie on the big screen. We also have an "Activities to-go" package available at the front desk for families to enjoy.

We also deeply regret that the arcade room was not operating as it should have been. This maintenance is handled through a third-party company and we will make sure to have them address this immediately. We take your comments very seriously and will be taking action to resolve them internally. We hope that you will consider giving us another chance in the future.

we stayed in the Floridays resort in Orlando, august 2013.
I love the outside decor as it seemed very grand and enchanting in a way,
next we got a choice of rooms and we were allowed to change our minds
as we got to our room, it seemed nice and had an 'at home' feel to it.
After exploring the resort it was very beautiful and was surrounded by trees and shrubs which made it look very tropical and open.
The pool was very big and spacious with a shallow and deep end, as well as having a water play area for younger kids.
Another awesome bonus was that It was quite close to Walt Disney World, Sea world and discovery cove!
The reason i only gave it a four star was because the ceiling fan and the lights stopped working halfway through the trip which was a bit of a let down.
but over all I really enjoyed my stay at the floridays resort in Orlando!

Room Tip: always ask for different room views :)

Myself my wife and 3 kids spent 3 weeks at floridays 1st till 22nd April and as expected we could not fault the place . It's our 2nd time staying at this resort and you really feel looked after and welcome by all the staff . The rooms are everything you need for total relaxation and we wouldn't stay anywhere else in orlando now we have found this place . I had a birthday whilst there and when returning to our room after a celebration meal on the evening there was a card signed by all the staff and balloons ... This was a really thoughtful touch by Tammy the GM and all her staff and it was much appreciated ...it's these little things that make you feel so welcome ... So a big thank you from the Smith family to the fantastic team at floridays see you all next year

Room Tip: There ain't a bad room really but for convenience it's best to be in blocks A B or C

Just back from 2 weeks at the Floridays, lovely resort in a quiet location near the south end of International Drive. Apartment was very clean and had every mod con needed, although it was a little dark! We didn't have a car but used the I trolley every day plus resort has shuttles to Seaworld, Universal, Aquatica and Disney plus it is only a short walk to Publix supermarket and Walgreens. Hotel staff were lovely and so helpful, especially Nilda and Ray :) Great holiday!

Room Tip: Go for a higher floor.

Our stay at Floridays was really great. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was very spacious and clean. The beds were extremely comfortable. Located so close to everything - navigating was not an issue. The pool was great too - the kids really enjoyed it. Definitely recommend to anyone traveling with family.

We decided to book a partial stay at Floridays as a result of my expecting sister not being able to get a fit to sail letter for a weekend cruise - our family post a $500 deposit from Royal Catibbean as a result of the cancellation occurring after final payment date. Initially we had a pre-cruise stay at a Disney value resort. In lieu of the cruise, we cancelled the Disney hotel and booked a stay at Floridays.

Thought this hotel would be at par with the newer Embassy Suites is Kissimee. It was actually a couple of notches lower. Maybe the ratings on Tripadvisor influenced us to choose this place. Very disappointed!!!

We were given a 3BR ground floor unit that was in a dark corridor full of mosquitos. Just walking from the lot to the room, you could also smell the trash room marinating in the Florida heat. The trash should be inspected more frequently and cleaned out as needed as well as some sort of deodorant placed in the vicinity.

Room itself was okay - clean and well maintained. The only major issue was the trash room and the mosquitos. Between my sister's family and mine, we must have killed at least a couple dozen in the four days we were there. We did notice that there was a swarm of them hanging outside of one of the bedroom windows. Cleaning/hotel staff should notice these things before they give the room to another party. I didn't mention this as this was a short stay for us (as we moved over to another hotel as part of a post-cruise stay) AND actually during check-out the lady didn't even ask how our stay was. Would have brought this up if asked, but it seemed like she was blowing me off to take care of others.

This place didn't meet our expectations vs our post cruise stay at the Wyndham Cypress Creek.

Pros: well maintained room, short drive to disney, shopping and restaurants. Also close to a Publix. Good children's pool as well.

Cons: Lighting to get to the room could be better; bad mosquito problem, trash drop off area needs to be cleaned often and have some sort of deodorant in and/or around the area; pillows okay, but mattresses should be more comfortable (wyndham's are way better; no way to check out of the room using the TV.

Overall, I don't think this place was worth the price or the stard with the many cons we had listed - probably a 2.5 star, pushing 3 if the cons weren't there. Will probably opt for other places next time.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are so disappointed to learn that your experience wasn't up to the excellent reputation that we have earned on TripAdvisor. We are glad to know that you did enjoy the clean and spacious suite. Thank you for also commenting on the central location and great pool area.

We sincerely apologize that mosquitoes were disturbing you during your stay. These are extremely common in Florida, especially near ponds, lakes, and forested areas. We will contact our pest control company to address this area in a safe way that will attempt to keep the insects away from the buildings. We are also sorry to learn that your check-out service experience wasn't up to the high service standards that we are known for providing. This is extremely uncommon and not the way that we want our guests to be treated. We appreciate all of your comments and will be addressing them internally with our team. Thank you again for sharing your feedback, we hope that you will reconsider staying with us again in the future.
