Vacation Summary

Would recommend Mon, Jan 18, 2016
The 1 Bedroom Condo was very good overall. Good size with lots of good amenities. Clean and tidy with helpful staff in the reception area. On the negative side, a couple of our friends visited for a few days and the sofa bed was just inadequate for them. The mattress was just too thin and the springs came through to make it uncomfortable. The 1 Bed Condo would be excellent for a family with 4 young children but not for 2 couples. We enjoyed our stay overall and I'd recommend the resort. Its in a good location but a car is essential.

Long weekend

Would recommend Wed, Nov 25, 2015
Overall we enjoyed our stay. The only hiccup was that we arrive in Orlando very early and asked if we could check-in early. Since this is a timeshare resort a specific room was assigned to us so we would have to wait until the previous guests had left and the room could be cleaned. I can understand, however the clerk that was on duty when we arrived wasn't able to explain this to us, all she would say when we asked questions is check-in is at 4 o'clock. We finally got her to agree to call us when our room was ready (which turned out to be 3:10). Luckily we had a rental car and were able to make do. Since the buildings are 21 story towers the views are wonderful. We didn't have time to take advantage of the lake but did use the pool and hot tub. The resort fee ($61 for 4 nights) seems a little steep for what little is available. We were able to book with a 60 discount so we were very happy with our stay.

The hotel is in the MOST PERFECT SPOT! the view is breathtaking! It is a bit old and run down, but for the cost, I will stay there again and again. The room was very clean, the pool was clean, the Jacuzzi was HOT! Everyone was nice.

Great location

Would recommend Sat, Oct 24, 2015
Fantastic location and great pool / bar area. My rating could have been 5, but lessened by tired interior, and several minor items broken (eg towel rail, screen door). Lack of kitchen utensils (veg peeler) but who worries about that on holiday? Washing machine / dryer very useful. All in all, I would book to go back next time - great value for money (and fabulously comfortable beds)

Brilliant family trip to orlando

Would recommend Tue, Oct 20, 2015
Great location close to the Disney parks with free shuttle to Epcot from where you can use Disney transport to all other Disney parks. Only a 20 minute drive to universal studios and islands of adventure. Pool excellent and a bar at the pool selling a range of drinks. Lovely lake view from the pool. Supermarket nearby.

Orlando Family Holiday

Would recommend Tue, Sep 22, 2015
My family of 2 adults and 3 children (aged between 7-12) shared a 1 bedroom condo in Blue Herons Tower 2 on the top floor. The views were spectacular both from our private balcony which overlooked the beautiful Lake Bryan and from the lift lobby area across to Downtown Disney and beyond to Epcot. The accommodation was typical of the U.S. with everything on the plus size and the ammenities were perfect for a self catered break. Improvement could have been made with a few more kitchen utensils but not a big issue. Located just off highway 535 and less than a mile to Disney and Interstate 4 the Blue Heron couldn't be better situated. There is ample free parking and restaurants within walking distance. Florida's Premium Outlet Mall is a 5 min drive away with all the designer shopping you could want. Driving times to Universal is only 20min and Seaworld and the nearer Disney Parks just 10mins. To the east coast it is around 60mins and to the west coast around 90mins. The Blue Heron has a large main swimming pool and second smaller pool with a hot tub also. None are served by life guards so smaller children will need supervising. The pools are cleaned daily. The boat dock and nature trail decking are really nice a peaceful areas and the resident Aligator who baths beneath is sure to fascinate everyone. There are two well equipped fitness suites and a small arcade games room. All rooms have wifi as does the pool areas. A poolside bar is run by a lovely English/American couple and they will happily offer great advice on places to eat and things to do. The Blue Heron met our family needs and was excellent value for money. This was our second trip to Orlando and of the two venues we've stayed although the other was great, the Blue Heron would get the vote for a return stay.

Overall satisfied with the Blue Heron. The room was clean and very nice. I loved looking out onto the lake! The exterior needs a lot of work. When pulling up to the hotel it gives a bad first impression.
