Blue Heron Beach Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The unit was nice overall, a bit dated. It was a bit dusty on the baseboards and fan blades. There is not a lot of sitting room in the living area as we had to store our luggage on the furniture as there were no luggage racks in the unit. This would be a nice feature to add. The kitchen was very basic. Not even a sponge in the kitchen to wash dishes. The air conditioner/blower constantly ran, couldn’t figure out how to stop that. The exterior needs some attention. No room cleaning or towel exchange, you have to pay more for that. There were pool towels in the unit. For the price, it met our needs. Location was great.

We stayed 4 nights and had a nice 1 bedroom condo that was quiet yet close to everything. Walking distance to Starbucks & minigolf. I wouldn't consider this a beach resort , having beach in the name implies there actually is one. We did have an odd experience returning to our room one day. There was a piece of canvas and a dirty carpet remnant left on the kitchen floor and as there isn't daily housekeeping we were a little concerned. My husband went to the desk and upon questioning management we were informed there had been a contractor looking at dryers. I feel we should've been notified that someone was coming into the unit or better yet scheduled on the following day when we were checking out.

Nice and spacious. We had an awesome view of the lake. Nice pool area. Close to Disney Parks. If we come to Orlando again we would definitely stay here.

Location is great for Disney world. Staffs are friendly. Room needs some tlc.

Great location with beautiful views. A great value too.

I would stay again but if my hotel smelled like it did on this last trip I would ask for a refund. We tried to leave but everything was booked in the area. I even spoke to the front desk and no one came to fix it or to accommodate us I use orbitz a lot it’s not the websites fault just the property.

La estancia muy agradable a excepción de las housekeeping tocando la puerta en la mañana dos veces para apresurarnos a salír de la habitación, cuando la salida era hasta las 11am. Por lo demas todo muy bien, el personal derecepción muy amable. Volveria a hospedarme ahí.

We decided to host a Disney Bachelorette here and was very pleased! All 5 of us comfortably fit as there were bunk beds and a sofa bed. Resort is close to the parks and close to Publix and Walmart. Room was very clean with full kitchen. Also provided beautiful view overlooking lake. Hotel staff was also very friendly. I also appreciated gym.

We stayed in the Sunrise Suite which was HUGE! It was just like being home. Gorgeous views of Lake Bryan. It accommodated our family of 4 perfectly but easily could sleep 8. Perfect location for making your way around Orlando and Kississimee. The suite was clean and well equipped, which is noce not having to eat out for every meal if you don't want/have too. It's updated and homey. We have a 20 year and a 16 year old and the accomodations could not have been more perfect. Gorgeous pier to walk and pools to swim. We will definitely book here again.

Got a really good deal on this hotel through Orbitz. This was our first time staying at the Blue Heron Beach Resort, everything was great. Staff was nice and friendly, rooms clean, kids really enjoyed the pool, I have 5 little ones so having a washer and dryer in our hotel room was great. Overall had a really nice experience.

Nice location, easy to find and walking distance for kids' fun . Love the pool and view of the lake as well.

Stay there the second time.Will stay there next time.

Everything about this hotel was perfect. All theme parks are within a half an hour drive, and if you don't drive they offer shuttles to all parks. Disney Springs is also a short drive away. There is both a Dunkin' Donuts and a Starbucks directly in front of the hotel, as well as a mini golf course. The pool is enormous and clean, and the staff at the tiki bar is amazing! (Especially Maria!) Around the corner is a watersports rental where you can rent kayaks, canoes, jet skis, etc. There is a nice Puerto Rican restaurant in the same plaza as the Dunkin' Donuts and if that's not your thing there's a restaurant across the street. The rooms are spacious and clean and the balconies offer great views of Lake Bryan. All the staff was friendly and efficient and knowledgable when asked questions. My friends and family will not stay anywhere else while in Orlando. This resort felt like home and even after our three day short stay we consider it home. It's perfect for all types of guests and central to everything you could possibly want in a Florida vacation.

Nice and quiet away from the hustle and bustle. All equipped condos lacked nothing. Very nice pool Area. About 5-7 miles from major attractions. Food gas some shopping walking distance and within a mile

I did leave a special pillow, the kind staff told me they would send it to me. I emailed the packing slip, so hope to receive it soon. We stayed in 1407 and hope when we return next year to stay there again. Perfect view, loved the pool my grandkids were so excited when they saw the pool and the bunkbeds. The kitchen was perfect for the short or long stay. The older lady at the reservation desk for the shuttle was so pleasant as was everyone we talked to too make our arrangements to go to the parks.

This place is in an amazing location. You cannot get a better place for the money. You get a washer/dryer, great location, tons of space, and a great view. It has a Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts in the parking lot. Perfect for an early morning snack on your way to the parks.

All we needed to have a wonderful stay, down to the toilet plunger was provided, to include washer & dryer (not coin), full size fridge with ice cube maker. The rooms were quite and very clean and we would stay there again, with no doubt.

Had a great experience with the family. Beautiful resort and very convenient to theme parks.

We stayed there 2 years ago and loved it. So when we decided to go back to Disney there was no other choice but to go back to blue heron.we got the 21st floor with the 2 most amazing views anyone could ever ask for. Already thinking about our next trip to Disney and the blue heron. We absolutely love the resort and will be back and will recommend this place to anyone we talk to that says they are going to Disney world

Is nice hotel, clean pool, in front of a lake. I have a 4 month old baby Loved that it had a washer and drier to wash his clothing. The only thing was that the baby crib provided was old, dirty and not locking properly, I did not use it, it wasn't safe.

I am sorry to hear about your experience with the smell of your guest room. I would like to take this opportunity to apologize, as that was not the way we typically take care of our guests. We have discussed this topic with the housekeeper who cleaned the room before your arrival, and the Supervisor who should have double-checked the room, and given the room an additional preventative maintenance cleaning. I know that does not change your experience but I hope that you can feel confident that we heard your concern. I apologize again for the problems, and thank you for taking the time to let me know about it. Without your guest feedback we cannot continue to improve our services
