Our stay at the Floridays was relaxing and a great time away from home. The staff is extremely accommodating. This was our second time at the Floridays and we highly recommend this resort to our friends and family.

Enjoyed this hotel so much that we did not want to leave. We are already planning our next visit. This hotel had it all. Loved the pool and the seperate section they had for the children. The hotel store was a bit pricey but it was nice knowing you had everything there if you didnt want to leave. There was also a game/arcade room which my husband and daughter enjoyed. There is a grocery store nearby but it was not an easy walk. My husband came back with bags of groceries but was also drenched in sweat. But i guess he didnt mind too much because he went back a second time. We would definitely rent a car next time. Shuttles were ok but we felt a little limited. Also try to stay at the "A" building as we were close to everything.

We stayed from Sept. 23-29, 2009. A family of 4- Mom, Dad and 2 children. We highly recommend staying at Floridays Orlando Resort. The front office staff were very helpful, answered any questions we had, printed our boarding pases upon check out. The 2 bedroom/2 bathroom was clean, and enough room to spread out after all the theme park adventures. Near market, drug store, dining, outlet mall, very close to everything! Nothing more than 10 minutes away. Beds are made for you each day. We had a veiw of their pool/pond area. Pool is small, but we didn't swim. We were in Orlando for the theme parks. Highly recommended for families, or people that like to maybe make their own breakfast before starting the day..or maybe have some ice cream/coffe/tea to relax at the end. Had a washer/dryer which was nice because we got caught in a rainstorm.The only problem I felt was the housekeeping could of been a bit better. But when we called the desk they promptly brought up the supplies and whatever we needed. 5 stars for the front office and the place in general!

We can't recommend Floridays highly enough. The suite was clean and very well-supplied, and the staff was always helpful and courteous. One morning when the air conditioning seemed to be failing (the only problem we encountered), the maintenance man arrived within 10 minutes of our reporting the matter to the front desk, and it was fixed within an hour. Before our next trip to Orlando, the very first place we will consider for our accommodations will be Floridays!

My family and I stayed in a 2 bedroom suite during the weekend of 9/25/09 and I must say it was the most comfortable place we have ever stayed in Orlando. It is close to all the theme parks and has a grocery store and pharmacy close by. You feel like you're home because you have all the amenities you would need, such as pots, pans, cutlery, plates, glasses and even bakeware. There is a microwave and dishwasher in the suite too. The pools looked very inviting, but we did not have enough time to enjoy them. My family and I are already planning our next trip and this is where we will stay from now on.

Stayed here with my mom and her friend. We had a 3BR/2bath corner unit exchanged with II (timeshare)

We requested a higher floor w/pool or lake view but were advised that due to exchange being from owner; they were unable to accomadate our request. The unit was very spacious. Very clean. Only set back was the balcony. It looked out to a "dirt road" and many trees "hovering" by the balcony bannister.

The beds/pillows were very comfortable.

Pots/Pans available. Had to "fix" a pan's handle which was unscrewed. Dryer full of lint; small things but items which should have been taken care of by housekeeping.

Also, though I have not contacted the resort on this yet (I got a terrible infection which I ended up in Med-Center two nites in a row - not resort related though) thus the reason I haven't made contact. However, very important to mention. The bedsheets had blood stains which looked like someone cut their finger or hand and dripped blood on the sheets. These sheets were the same ones all week! Very depressing. Feel they should have been bleached or thrown out. Will contact Resort and advise.

Otherwise, no complaints on the room and supplies EXCEPT that we were given one tiny box of tide and when I called the front desk requesting another box (this is the only extra supply we asked for) the person at the front desk kind of "chastised" me for asking for another box. Went on a long "sermon" that it is the norm to only give one box, etc. etc. but would make an exception and send one up, however, he continued to remind me (though we were checking out the next day) that this was the last one he would send up. ???
Anyhow, this was the only staff member that seemed to be "unfriendly"

Upon check out we were treated great; boarding passes were printed out; etc.

WARNING: You will be advised upon CHECK-IN that your card will be "charged" a "pending" $350.00 fee which will be reimbursed at check-out minus any charges you incur. So make sure you have the funds as "surplus" on your card.

POOL: Small, they make it sound like there is a BIG pool and a SMALLER one - in reality there is a small pool and smaller pool near building C. This is where we were located.

NOISE: Almost non-existent! :)

Ground staff / housekeeping were very kind; helpful; and friendly.

Only thing was that though we were close to Internation Drive - having been in Disney area numerous times; I missed US192 easy access to just about everything. Also, being on US192 was nicer to travel at night from Disney. But that's just me. :O

TIP: BRING YOUR OWN ETHERNET CABLE OR ASK FOR ONE AT THE FRONT DESK AS SOON AS YOU CHECK-IN. Free internet was a GREAT PLUS!

We stayed here for a Disney vacation. It's close to the parks, maybe 15 minutes max. The rooms are nicely furnished with a fully equipped kitchen. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Definitely a place to consider
