Well we went back to Orlando again this year in March, and stayed at Floridays Resort on International Drive for our second year in a row. I must say the second time was just as great as the first time, only thing better was we knew some of the staff this time which made it extra special.I wont go in to detail on the rooms and etc. you can read my last review from March 2013 to find out all about this wonderful resort. I will say that we will be back as it truly is a Home away from Home for family vacations.in the past each time we traveled to Florida we have tried to switch up our accommodations, but I think we could not have found a better Resort that is why we went back this year.We live in Canada's Far north and travel over 4000 miles every time we go to Florida, I cannot say enough good things about Floridays, its location, staff, accommodations and everything else about this Resort is Fantastic, my only improvement would to have recycle bins in each room as being Canadian we strongly believe in Recycling and I hate to see plastic and glass bottles from our room go into the trash, so while we were there we simply went down to the first floor of our building and placed them in the recycling bin out front of the elevators. Great Job again , hats off to all the staff, especially to Danielle and Katelyn at my favorite watering hole beside the pool. hopefully see you next year, keep my drink cold :)

Picked this location as needed something that could fit my husband, myself, our child and mother - so at least 2 baths and 2 bedrooms, without having to book two complete rooms. This place was an excellent value compared with many of the theme park hotels we were looking at. The front desk staff were very friendly and thorough upon arrival. They answered questions before I even had to ask and were super nice.

Unfortunately it rained almost our entire stay (unheard of in Florida, right?) We weren't able to walk around and explore - so was a little bummed as this was part of the convenience was the hotel located near things. However, we used the concierge service quite a bit to book dinner reservations, tickets, etc. Wildo in particular was wonderful! Super nice, very patient and if they didn't know, looked up for us. (Also always seemed to have a coupon!) He was friendly and had a cute sense of humor. Loved him! The fixed rate car service out front was quick and convenient, and if you needed a taxi - that usually came very quick as well.

On our last day we did get to enjoy the pool for a couple hours. It was a nice size, plenty of chairs and conveniently located near our room. Also, the little convenience store had everything we needed.

Our room was the perfect size for us. Loved the kitchenette and deck area. Especially appreciated that the temperature control was quick to adjust when you would change it.

The only negatives - if any at all ... the dryer in the room didn't work so great. I actually laid items out on the chairs over night and they dried quicker than using the actual clothes dryer. Also, both showers dripped and dripped after shutting off. Really annoying. Actually put a towel in the drainage area so didn't have to listen to the drip. My Mom's room was located next to the hallway (building A) and she did have people talking, laughing, etc. at all hours of the night. She said she woke up at 3 a.m. one time because of the loud people in the hallway. We couldn't hear from our bedroom, but hers was right next to it. Housekeeping service is limited, they make the beds, empty garbage and bring new tools. (Although the last day they didn't give either bathroom any washcloths, odd.) You can pay extra to have them do more.

Overall I think this hotel has everything you need. Nothing fancy, but enough space and amenities for a easy get away. If the weather was nice, I think we would have enjoyed it even more. We would definitely come back again.

Room Tip: We stayed in building A. It was very convenient and close to lobby, pool, game room, etc. However, t...

We stayed for 4 nights in April with our 3 sons for a theme park frenzy. It was easy to get to any theme park from the resort and the airport was a short drive away. We really appreciated the size of the 3 bedroom apartment, particularly the distance between our room and the kids'! We only used the pool once, because we were so busy but it is a great size and there are plenty of lounges. We visited the Premium Outlet Mall past Wet n Wild, on international drive and found it fantastic. We didn't get to spend much time there as it started pouring and the kids complained but I recommend it for great bargains. Publix supermarket is very close so it's easy to prepare your own meals and having a washer and dryer is a bonus. The air conditioning and dishwasher were a bit dated so they were noisy but that didn't affect our stay too much.

As we all are usually, I booked online and hoped that this place would be decent. We arrived early (way too early) due to a switch in travel plans. I was more than open to just leave my bags with the desk until a room opened up. But nope, the front desk smiled big and said we've got a room for you right now. After entering this "room", it was no longer qualified to just be called a "room". The furniture was perfect, the beds were great, it was extremely clean and the layout was as if I just moved into a high end apartment.

The staff did a great job of cleaning the room each day and the kids kept saying how nice the place was. It really did make our vacation significantly better. We stayed in a 3 bedroom for about $260/night. It was worth every penny. The cafe, pool and bar were great as well. While the pool may not have every feature some resorts have, it was certainly large enough to handle peak season and the layout made it more secluded than just an open space. Finally, the location was good. It was only minutes to each place and was just down the street from Sea World.

I can't imagine selecting any place other than Floridays for future visits. Well done!

Room Tip: Building C or D are likely the best choice. They are both a few steps away from the pool for quit...

I really had a fantastic vacation at the Floridays Resort. We had a three bedroom Apartment. It was just like a Home away from Home. Very cosy, well equipped and clean. A very friendly team overall. The location was great, also with the I- ride bus stop just infront of the resort. A perfect option for my family with a child of 7 and a 9 months old baby. Thanks for the great care. Hope 2 be back ! We stayed 4/23/2014 to 5/02/2014.

Room Tip: Higher floors and corner suites are perfect.

The resort is really well located. Very close to theme parks (Disney,Seaworld, Aquattica) and Premium Outlets. Nice service. The 3 bedroom unit are fantastic, spacious, fully furnished and all ready for any long stay. Great pool and jacuzzi. Cant wait to go back to Floridays.

The property is large, well maintained and clean. The staff we very friendly and helpful. The design does mean that the corridors are quite noisy but because our room was at the back we slept ok. The bed was comfortable. For a couple in their 40's we didn't really need the space we had in two bedroom apartment but I can see for families it would be fantastic. We felt the location was a little out of the way although if you are mainly visiting Disney it would probably be ok. For us we preferred to be nearer the I4 or the sea world end of international we seemed to need to do a lot more driving this time as we dined out each night. Families for Disney yes but for us we would probably chose another location next time.

Room Tip: Higher floor probably best and away from the pool area if you want quiet.
