Dave was not feeling so well today with a chest infection so we had a lazy start to the day and then headed off to Cafe 118 degrees which is a raw food cafe in Winter Park I had read about before we left and wanted very much to try. The meal was lovely and the setting for the cafe was also. Winter Park looks like a rather affluent, trendy area with …
We headed off to KSC in what we thought was plenty of time and then found out we were supposed to check in 1/2 hour early and the journey was longer than we thought. We made it in time for the bus with only 10 mins to spare, but made it we did! The Up Close and Personal Tour was fantastic and we went into places that hadn't been open to the public …
Not the most exciting day of the trip as most of it was spent sitting on a plane but picking up the rental car at Orlando was easy as we are now preferred customers. Also, the traffic we had been warned about was virtually non-existent. The resort is fantastic. Our apartment is huge with two large bedrooms and two bathrooms. We also have a washing …

Historical Traveler Reviews Floridays Resort Orlando
I guess we just were very fortunate...no problems at all with our stay at Floridays. Yes, it is brand new and most of the buildings are still being completed and furnished, but we weren't even aware of the construction activity...no noise, dust (etc.) Also, the staff were very pleasant and helpful.
Beautiful hotel-housekeeping not so good
the rooms a really nice...the master bathtub is great..along with kiddie pool.
But please note the first day after stay, housekeeping did not come at all..the beds were not made, nothing!
I don't know if they did not know that a guest was in that room or what.
The staff seems very mechanical, they were effecient..but seemed to be following training guides not to personable.
But the rooms are gorgeous,...ask to be in buildingB.
Also, the hotel is very quiet, but in the heart of everything!
Floridays Orlando Resort nice but a few problems!
My family stayed at the Floridays resort July 10-17. The checkin was great until we got to the rooms. The room was dirty and the bathrooms had never been cleaned. The housekeeping is very slack. We didn;t even get service until we called late afternoon and all the housekeeping folks were going home. This resort is very nice but they need to have better managing skills. Our toilets and bathtub backed up for a couple of days. The hot tub by the pool was broken. We would possibly stay again but right now unsure it we would.
Ga. on my mind!
Our family of 9 stayed for 3 nights during July 4 week.
My daughter's family and my husband and I just returned from four days at Floridays Resort. The location is superb; it's less than ten minutes from Sea World and an easy drive to other theme parks. The pool is fantastic; our grandchildren, aged 5 and 7, didn't even want to go to the water park. They were perfectly happy with the water features for kids in the Floridays pool. As brand new construction, Floridays has a few problems,but the wonderful staff makes up for any shortcomings. They were very helpful, especially when a toilet in our three-bedroom unit started to overflow, accompanied by water shooting up from the bathroom sinks. They quickly gave us a new condo and even allowed my daughter's family to stay in the original unit that night because the kids had already been put to bed. The remaining working bathroom was adequate for them, as long as my husband and I went to the new unit. The next morning everyone moved to the new condo. This one was 69 degrees, and we couldn't change the themostat. A maintenance man arrived within minutes of my request to set it a few degrees higher. The furnishings are beautiful, perhaps too nice to easily withstand the wear and tear of the tourist trade. Also,the interior decorator designed the master bedroom drapes so that they could not be closed. I'm sure all the "bugs" will be worked out, however. The bargain price more than compensated for a few problems. I'm sure the price will go up when all facilities are complete.
My family and I recently came back from our vacation in Orlando Fl. We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo at Floridays Resort from June 8-12 2006. We arrived a couples of hours before check in time, but were graciously welcomed and allowed to check in early. There was going to be a total of nine people sharing a room which consisted of 4 adults and 5 children. I was a little worried about space and privacy. We were assigned a room on the 3rd floor and was told ahead of time there was not much of a view from the window. We opened the doors to a beautifully decorated, oversized, and clean condo. My husband and I totally enjoyed the whirlpool tub in the master bedroom. My nephew enjoyed watching the plasma TV in the living room area, in which he pulled out the sofabed that was new and slept there every night. The 4 other children shared a bedroom that had 2 queen sized beds and a TV also. My sister and her husband had their own bedroom as well. Their was plenty of space. We visited the pool every night and the children loved the water sprayers. The Publix was within walking distance. Seaworld is also very close by as well as Disney and Universal Studios. We totally enjoyed our vacation there and hopefully will return there next year.
I just stayed at Floridays Orlando Resort and it was a fabulous vacation! The resort is still under construction so it seems a bit strange staying there with some of the buildings just being built, but it wasn't a bother at all. We stayed in Building B which is fully completed and it's fabulous. The room was amazing and included everything you could need or want(dishes, pool towels, iron, utensils, pots & pans, full size refrigerator, stove...etc!). I am very picky about toilet paper (as strange as that might be) and towels and both were of great quality. The king size bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable it was hard to get out of bed and head to the parks. The pool is magnificently big and the kiddie section/waterpark was a big hit with all the kids staying at the resort!
We are a family of 5 that were LITERALLY the first guests to stay at this hotel. Although it is under construction, we had a wonderful time. Management was incredible. Accommodations were impeccable, and top of the line in terms of quality. We had a 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit. Entrance was a little difficult to find in the dark, but a GREAT location. Close to everything, yet far enough away from the enormous traffic that surrounds Disney. This condo/hotel is fabulous. Your suite is cleaned, trash taken out, and beds are made on a DAILY basis, unlike renting a condo or a house where you do all the cleaning yourself or have to beg for clean towels!
We just recently returned from a 5 night stay at the new Floridays Resort in Orlando. We cancelled reservations at Cypress Harbour Resort because we got the Floridays Resort $50 per night cheaper. It is a good value right now, however, since it is still under construction, there are some drawbacks. There is nowhere to stroll around the resort or jog. The exercise room does not have tvs which makes excercise very boring. We found the rooms to be quite a bit smaller than some of the timeshare resorts such as Hilton Grand Vacation Club and the Marriott timeshare units and you cannot see fireworks from this resort. Do not recommend a unit on the second floor because when you sit on your very small balcony, your view is of the concrete wall. This is only a problem on the second floor because all other floors have a railing instead of the wall. The furnishings are very nice and maid service provides plenty of thick towels every day. The pool is nice, but no shade. When other buildings open, the pool will be way too small, but hopefully they will have other pools?
I write this as we finish our 6 night stay at Floridays. I was a little leary booking this hotel since it opened its doors exactly 1 month ago. Currently, there is only one building that occupies guests and it will take nearly 2 years before construction is complete. The pool is beautiful, although not huge. We would read at the pool each morning and it was rare to find any other guests using it while we were there. The rooms are beautifully furnished...complete with a full kitchen, washer and dryer, plasma tv in the living room and a tv in each of the bedrooms. The beds were comfortable and best of all, the furnishings were new. No soiled carpets or stinky rooms! The staff here is awesome. We had a few glitches our first day....no telephone book, no garbage cans in the bathrooms, and a door lock that wouldn't lock. The manager immediately moved us to another room and even provided a beautiful gift basket to compensate for our inconvenience. The location is great if you will be staying outside of Disney. A mile or so away you'll find a large outlet shopping complex. Even closer is a Walgreen drug store, Publix supermarket, Subway, McDonalds, etc. It is convenient for getting to Disney and SeaWorld. A 15 minute freeway drive to get to Universal Studios. All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel if you are interested in being "off Disney property" and like to stay in a spacious, new property.
