“Disappointed”
Reviewed 10 November 2010

We were really looking forward to staying at this Resort, but unfortunately when we arrived we found ourselves staying in a suite overlooking 'nothing', grass & dirt. The room smelt of cigarette smoke and it took about 4 days for the smell to ease up - we were offered another room but didn't shift as we were so locked in to booked activities and our family of 5 were too tired after all our previous traveling. We had a few glitches like a toilet that didn't flush, a toaster that didn't work, lots of annoying little things. We were on the 5th floor in a 6 floor complex and could hear the people above walking around, it did bother our sleep at times. For a family of 5 the sleeping requirements were super and the parents bedroom with spa bath in ensuite was a bonus. Now that the room issue has been discussed, in fairness to Floridays they did try very hard to make things right by providing us with 2 platters of food. They also allowed us a late checkout. The staff were very helpful on reception and it is a great family resort.

I have been going to Orlando since I was young and this was my 9th time there. Floridays was recommended to me by a work colleague and it was excellent. we arrived late at night but the front desk is operated 24 hours, we were not in the same block as my family but the staff rectified this quickly. from the rooms, to the landings and pool area the place is spotless and any issues are resolved extremely quickly. all staff were very helpful and even sent a gift to our room as we were on honeymoon. great for couples and families. the bedrooms are a decent size although the beds in the second room are a bit small for 2 adults. there is a fully equipped kitchen with utensils and washing and dishwasher powder is provided daily. large kitchen, dinning table and seating area. 3 pools and free wifi internet. complementary transport is provided to ALL parks and there is sales desk in site. There are also trolley and bus stops right outside the resort and a supermarket and shopping outlet is 5 minutes walk away, although you do have to walk along the side of the road and there is no pavement. Drinks and food at the pool bar are an ok price but the shop is quite expensive. I cannot recommend this resort enough.

I had a blast while staying at Floridays! This was the second time I stayed there, every year the ladies in our church stay there and do a lesson. The rooms were very large and the view of the lake was great! I recommend this resort to anyone who is planning to stay in central Florida.

A wonderful experience from beginning to end!! ZERO complaints. It was great having 2 full baths, the privacy of 2 bedrooms and 3 TV's. We booked directly thru the resort and it was worth it for a few extra bucks (cheaper to go thru VRBO, however if there are any problems, you have to go directly thru the owner and NOT thru the front desk to get your issue/request resolved...ie: extra towels, TV not working, ....). PUBLIX is just outside the resort, perfect! Quiet location but everything is nearby. There are no hidden fees: Room rate, tax, resort fee. Washer and dryer was a great bonus to this suite....we'll be back!!

We stayed here while attempting to attend a space shuttle launch, which was postponed repeatedly. Twice the hotel allowed us to shift our reservation a day without penalty, which was great. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, too. We had a 3 bedroom suite that was spacious, clean and gave the five of us lots of room to spread out. My only "dislike" was that with dark furniture and heavy drapes, the rooms felt dark to me and I had to constantly keep lights on... and for an energy-conscious person, this was a little frustrating. I would return here in a heartbeat - the price was very low and the property itself was more than we could have ever expected for the price.

this place is great, its away from the center of international drive which i thought was ideal. the super market is 10min walk with a great steak house called the outback just a further 3min walk after the super market. the shuttle to and from the parks were great with the i ride stop at the hotel entrance. i would suggest that you get takeaway menus from dominos and the japaneses resturant near the hotel entrance.
the rooms were amazing, loads of room and as for the whirlpool bath that was a god send after a full day of walking in the parks. havnt got a bad word to say about this place, i would highly reccomend it to anyone, great for childrenwith the 3 tv's in the rooms and the kids pool, also the master bed was huge.

Friendly, helpful staff seemingly genuine in their desire to be of assistance, and happy with their job. Location is a little away of "the center" of any action, so a car is good to have, but still close enough to everything, that it's nice for some peace and quiet. Clean, comfortable, and they didn't charge us for "extras"!
