Just returned from a week at Floridays in Orlando. According to previous reviews it is the "number one" hotel in Orlando. In my opinion it is average...nothing great about it and nothing too bad about it.
We have been going as a family to Orlando for 15 years and we have stayed at several different resorts in the Orlando/Kissimmee area.
Where Floridays is located is good...but we have stayed previously at the "Fountains" next door to Floridays and Vistana Villages across the road from Floridays and I would stay at either one of those resorts before I stayed at Floridays again.
Honestly, it is just a "bare bones" resort, nothing fancy or fun. My kids are older now and they enjoy tennis and pool...not just video games and an air hockey table. Floridays just has two pools and the "children's pool" is quite busy but the quiet pool is OK...there are no fountains or slides on the property.
As far as our unit was concerned..don't be content with a unit on the second floor! (the balcony is half stucco). We were and we were disappointed about how dark the unit was. When we arrived the check in was very quick and easy! When we got to our unit we knew the unit had been cleaned throughly because the smell of bleach and disinfectant was overpowering. After opening all the windows the smell left the unit 24 hrs later. The unit is smaller than others we have been to in the Orlando area. Master Bathroom is very large and a big waste of space.
The unit was a 2 bed room for 6 people yet the cutlery and dishes were only enough for 4 people.
All in all it was just OK but I would not return to this resort. My favourite resort out of the many we have been to ( Orange Lake, Vistana, The Fountains, Vistana Villages, Westgate, Westgate Lakes, etc...) Vistana Villages is the best as far as location, amenities, unit size and a beautiful place to stay.
