Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 April 2010

So my husband and the in laws and I traveled to Orlando for Spring vacation. This was our first time staying at Floridays Orlando Resort and I must say that I will be back! We booked a 2 bedroom condo and was exquisite. We had to wait a little while for the room becuase we got there before check and thankfully we did. We were able to avoid being placed in teh same building as a very large school group staying at the hotel at the same time. We were put on the 2nd floor in Building A. If you are looking for a family friendly, clean an deconomical place to stay for a few days on vacation, floridays is theplace to go. the condo had a full kitchen with granite countertops, washer and dryer, 2 full baths with a spa tub in the master bathroom and a dinning room table. the romms were fully equipped and we didn't have not one probelem during our entire stay. Also, Floridays is centrally located to Universal studios and MGM/Hollywood Studios. It is right around the corner from teh Outlet Mall and Sea World.

We are lucky to have a place like this for the price! You can not beat the Staff the cafe is outstanding and the front desk is very quick to help out! This is service not common in Orlando as I have been to several Resorts and Hotels in the area! If you look at the amount of reviews Floridays has over all the others on trip advisor, you will start to see that not so many were moved by the Resort or Hotel stay. As very little made a comment.

We just returned from a 5 night stay at Floriday's Resort Orlando. We booked a 2 bedroom suite and shared the space with another couple.

Check in was very efficient and the front desk staff was very accommodating, even though we arrived at 11:00 pm and had added an additional night to the front of our stay at the last minute.

Our suite was everything it needed to be...clean, spacious and well appointed. The fully functional kitchen came in quite handy, as we were able to prepare breakfast in the suite every morning before leaving for the day. House keeping was great, even bringing extra coffee packets (Starbucks brand coffee) to the room when we realized we forgot coffee filters. We never had a problem with fresh towels, they were replaced daily. The view from our suite (Building E, room 103) was the parking lot, so we didn't take advantage of the terrace as we did last year (when we overlooked a small body of water with a fountain), but we weren't in the room that much anyway so it was certainly not a deal-breaker. The pools at Floriday's are wonderful, but they are another amenity that we did not take advantage of this trip.

Perhaps the best thing about Floriday's is the LOCATION! We felt as if we were close enough to the action of everything offered in Orlando, without being drowned by it! We were able to enjoy a soothing, relaxing vacation but were able to step it up with tons of fun with only a short ride to any attraction.

Bottom line...Floriday's is the only place we will stay when in Orlando!

***Note: In regards to the "free" high speed internet and parking mentioned below...they are actually included in the resort fee which is charged per night.

We had read so many great reviews about Floridays here on TA that we were happy to book our 14 night stay at the resort. Our party was 2 adults and 2 boys aged 8 and 10. We had a 2 bedroom ground floor unit in Block C. The location was fine and the unit was private and quiet.
We found the interior to be quite dark even with the curtains fully opened at the back. (Opening the second bedroom curtains exposes you to the walk by traffic and this seems to be common to most units). The furnishings in our unit were a little tired as were the kitchen fixtures and utensils. A bed in the boys room was broken when we arrived and on closer inspection it was easy to tell that this was a well used piece of furniture. I reported the broken bed to reception and it was repaired before we returned that night.
We found that our bed linens were generally old and poorly fitted so that even though the beds were made daily, they were always 'sloppy'. At day 10 we had to ask the housecleaning staff to change our bed linen.
We used the resort shuttle which is shared with the nearby Fountains resort. The shuttle picks up first at Fountains. On several occasions we found that the shuttle was fully booked and we were required to make other arrangements. So be advised, book your shuttle very early on the preceding day, particularly on weekends.
As many have reported here recently, the heated pool was cold. Enough said.
We have travelled extensively and rarely find the need to use bottled water however we all reached for the bottled water as the water in the rooms smeeled and tasted very strongly of sulphur.
If we were to go again I would think very seriously about Fountains Resort.
BTW, here's a tip for those without a car. If at Disney and you wish to get back to the resort by taxi, take a Disney shuttle to a resort adjacent to Downtown Disney. Take a leisurely stroll over to Downtown Disney and get your taxi there. You will save $15-$20 in Taxi fares.

We really enjoyed our stay at Floridays. There were 6 of us - my husband, myself, 2 boys, and my in laws. We had a 3 bedroom unit in building C and the space was perfect. The kitchen was very well stocked with dishes and cooking items. Only thing missing was salt and pepper. There is a grocery store within walking distance that closes at 10. The Walmart is about a 10 minute drive and is open 24 hours.

We really liked our location in the hotel. Building C is close to the pool, but not directly overlooking it. At check in, we were given a choice of room locations and picked a room overlooking a pond with the pool in the distance. There are rooms with only parking lot views, which wouldn't be great if you plan to sit on the deck at all. We had such a great time in the mornings watching the pond. There was a family of ducks, a turtle, lots of fish, visiting loons etc.

The front desk staff were great. The room was very clean upon check in. We knew ahead of time that full housekeeping was an additional charge. Everyday, they would replenish towels and make the beds. A couple of times we had to call the desk as not enough towels were left, but other than that, the service was reliable. Once, we did order a full cleaning which was only $35. They did a great job on the bathrooms and kitchen, but the vaccuming wasn't great.

The only negative thing we experienced was the restaurant service at the pool. We only used it once, so maybe we just hit it on a bad night. We were told that our orders would be 20 minutes and they took over 40. Then, my husband ordered a pizza and sat there for almost an hour waiting. The place was closing and it turned out they hadn't put the order through. They offered to make it, but it would have been another 20 minutes so he passed. But, again, that was the only time we tried it so I don't know if that was a common thing.

The bar service was great though, and the drinks were yummy.

We had originally booked through expedia, but we ended up cancelling that reservation and booked directly through the hotel as they had a much better AAA rate come up.

All in all, it was a great experience and I would stay here again - especially when the rate was so reasonable.

Another added benefit - 3 minute drive to the Premium Outlet Mall which is next door!

The Floridays Resort Orlando is a great place to stay. I recently stayed in a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom suite and I have no complaints. It is very spacious and would be ideal for 9 - 12 people. The master bedroon has a king size bed with a stand alone shower and a large whirlpool bathtub. The other 2 bedrooms have 2 full size beds in each room and the living room has a sleeper sofa. A fully equipped kitchen and a stackable washer and dryer are also more features of the resort. It is located near Universal Studios. If you do not want to drive to the theme parks, the resort offers a shuttle that will drop off and pick up from the theme park. This is definitely a great option for large parties with multiple cars and you don't have to pay for parking. The Floridays Resort is a timeshare, however we were never pressured into going on any tours or forced into purchasing a timeshare. This resort was only ranked as a 3 star hotel but I would give them the top rating because this place is awesome.

I stayed in room e312 3 bedrooms.2 baths. the master bedroom had jacuzzi type tub. The room was clean, large and had a well equiped kitchen. There was a great pool for the kids(and adults) and a small pool by our building. The hotel is close to all attractions and 1 hour from ocean and 1.7 hours from the gulf. At check out time the girl at the front desk printed my boarding passes at no charge. The staff if very friendly . They have internet access for a charge. The only negative thing was the lighting in the bathrooms was not bright enough.
