We stayed in a trio suite as a family of four, on ground floor. Checking in was easy and the room appeared clean but dark, with limited natural light coming through windows.The staff are very friendly and couldn't do enough for you, especially Vanessa-bless her! The grounds are clean, the pool warm and the hot tub a god send after a tiring day at the theme parks. It is conveniently located opposite the Orlando eye and has many restaurants which seemed pricey. The shuttle to disney parks was convenient and we could easily take a taxi to Universal parks as it was very close to them.Remember to book the shuttle a day in advance! My only gripe is about the breakfast. It is probably an american thing but I felt the choices were limited with just pork as the meat option.Also the dishes were quite repetitive and could do with perhaps adding more british dishes like fried eggs or hash browns or having chicken or beef dishes. We saw a lot of Brits in the hotel and the change might appeal to them(bearing in mind you can't cater to every nationality of-course!) If you are used to certain breakfasts back home, it is probably worth carrying your favourite cereal just in case you don't like what is on offer. Kitchen was well equipped, and we made good use of the fridge, microwave, hob and the dishwasher. Clean utensils too. We even made use of the laundry room which was very easy to use. Parking was plenty and spacious and we always found a space close to our room.Cabs are plenty around the area. All in all, we enjoyed the stay at the hotel and will gladly return again. Pros- Convenient Location, plenty of parking, very accommodative staff, lovely kitchen, hotel amenities Cons- Room cleaning of floors can be hit and miss, Limited breakfast options Read less

Have recently stayed in Sonesta Es Suites in Orlando and all I can is say is fab accommodation and helpful staff. The consierge Paul Kelly was very helpful and knowledgable. Purchased Discovery coce tickets and Epcot tickets. No issues. Travelled 2 adults and 12yr old son. Breakfast catered for all tastes and bonus was included in cost. 2nd time staying in Sonesta hotel and could not fault. Hotel across the road from Orlando eye and Star Flyer. Plenty of restaurant's within walking distance. Small pool which was more than adequate for ones needs. Stayed in the 1 bed apt and son had large pull put bed. Room cleaned daily and had all amenities one would need. Overall really nice place to stay and could not recommend enough.👌🇮🇪 Read less
