Fodor's Review

This 24-acre Nickelodeon-themed resort is so kid-friendly that you can barely take a step without bumping into images of SpongeBob, Dora the Explorer, Jimmy Neutron, or other Nick characters. The whole place is dedicated to play. Suites have separate kids' rooms with bunk beds and SpongeBob wall murals. Two giant water-park pools have slide-towers, fountains, climbing nets, live entertainment, and daily slime fests, and they are staffed by multiple lifeguards. The resort

offers character breakfasts, wake-up calls from Nick stars, and a 4-D movie theater. Parents are not forgotten: poolside bars, food court, Internet connections in rooms, room service. The hotel also offers a package vacation with LEGOLAND Florida.

Nick Noise

Family - 2 adults and 4 teens, 2-14 & 2-17. To make this vacation affordable one kid suite was sufficient. Bang for your buck was just exactly what we got. We were just off the pool area, which meant NOISE and no day naps for the - blaring music at an empty but very nice pool area. Bus service was HORRIBLE, there were many MANY hotels on the bus route and ours was always the last one on the route. One night the park closed at 12:00 by 2:40 am, exhausted

and laying in our designated parking space #159 at general parking lot at ticket and transportation center our bus appeared to take us back. Trips often exceeded an hour too and from the hotel. We gave up and drove our car. The master bedroom was roomy and nice, the second bedroom (two bunks & cot) was very cute, spongebob mural precious, living area TINY if sofa was pulled out, you had to walk over it. Waited about an hour to check in (luckily I was priority club!) Put no merit in the fact that it has a kitchenette. Too tiny and cramped to be functional. Cereal and pop tarts are about all you'll eat out of this room! Our focus was Disney, if you are not going to spend EVERY moment at Disney it would probably be a great choice. Provide your own transportation if Disney is the focus, or do your homework on the bus schedules.

The best

Just returned from a 4 night stay. We have 2 boys ages 6 and 9. They loved the hotel. They loved having their own room with a tv and Nintendo. The pool was great. Lots of fun. Nightly entertainment (even during off season) was superb! The buffets were good and a great value. We ate most meals right there. I would highly reccomend this hotel for anyone with young children. We are definetly going back next year.

HIFS is a Great Family Resort

We spent 4 nights here in the summer of 2002. It is a wonderful resort for families! The kidsuites were clean and large. The rate was very reasonable. $109 per night which included buffet breakfast and dinner! My only complaint was the original clerk at check-in. He was very rude. However, every employee after that was wonderful!

Best Orlando Hotel for Families!!!!

We stayed here in October 2000. Our kids (10 and 11 at the time) LOVED IT! What they liked was the cool kids suite w/their own TV/VCR in their bedroom w/bunk beds. The place was well laid out with nice bathroom with a lot of extra stuff (makeup mirror for example) and even reading lights on the walls next to each bunk bed. It had a separate bedroom for parents. It had a cozy living room/kitchen combo that worked very nicely. The pool was nice

w/ping pong tables (2) and a shuffleboard court. There was a beach snack bar for smoothies too. The prices of the fast food was very reasonable in the lobby and the kids ate free when parents bought 1 meal. The breakfast buffet was okay, nothing great but all in all, this was a PERFECT Orlando Hotel. We also stayed at the Caribe Royale (in 10/2000) which was more luxurious but less kid oriented (but it does have a REALLY neat slide that really wows the younger kids). We stayed in October 97 at both the Radisson Parkway (didn't like it except for the pool area) and the Caribe Royale. On that trip our kids loved the Caribe (they were 7 and 8) and the slide really did it for them along with the room set up. On our 10/2000 trip, our kids favorite was the Holiday Inn Family Suites Resort.
