Absolutely Amazing!
Reviewed 3 days ago

We stayed here for 2 weeks as a family of 7 and had an amazing time. This hotel is the perfect base for exploring the theme parks in Orlando. The trio 2 bed suite was lovely and very spacious. Housekeeping was always to a high standard, the children loved coming back to see how their soft toys had been arranged on the beds for them. We always had plenty of clean, fresh towels. The breakfast was great, plenty of choice which changed daily. Always hot and fresh, definitely more than enough to set you up for the day. The swimming pool was excellent, the children would spend most evenings in there after a day at the parks. Plenty of inflatables provided and plenty of sun loungers too. The staff on reception were always very friendly and helpful, advising us of good places to eat and offering us discount vouchers to use at some restaurants too! The absolute number one selling point for this hotel is the location. You are spoilt for choice of places to eat all within a short walking distance. The icon 360 is directly opposite and we had a wonderful view of it from our room. We hired a car and it was 15 minutes to Disney and just over 5 minutes to Universal. We would definitely recommend this hotel and are already looking to come back in 2021!

Fantastic hotel, has just about everything. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. I’ve stayed here a few times and it’s my favourite hotel in Orlando. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Was there for Easter Sunday a few years ago and they had an Easter egg hunt around the hotel, the kids loved it. The pool is heated and a great place to relax. Sea world and universal are on the ”I-ride” so really easy access all day. Breakfast is great and is included usually which is a big plus over other hotels in the area. Restaurants and shops all within walking distance. All in all a super place to base yourself in Orlando.

Spot on!

The hotel is brill! Yvonne on reception was fab- we forgot our pushchair & she found one out for us. Free breakfast & pool are basic but grand. Perfect really. The rooms are excellent size & have everything you need. (Fridge, dish washer, microwave, coffee machine)
The hotel puts on 3 free shuttles to Disney/universal- perfect if u don’t want to do flydrive- you book on but they’re not busy. Times are First thing (8.30ish), brunch time & around noon. & they have 3 return shuttles. (5.30pm 8.30pm 10.45pm ish!!)
If you prefer to Uber which we did from animal kingdom & typhoon lagoon because these are a bit faffy to get to/from, the price is around $12. It’s direct & about a 15minute drive.
The location of the hotel is bang on. Over from icon park with plenty of eateries & things to see. We popped over for food n cocktails when our 3 year old was asleep in pram. It was easy enough for us & we will return to Sonnesta- it was perfect.
$8 in an Uber to the outlet too although we didn’t rate the outlet, it was worth a ride for kids sketchers ha!
You will have an amazing time. The suites are 2nd best to a pricey Disney hotel. Tip: Don’t forget your water in Disney parks $5.50 a pop!

Exactly as promised

We’ve just returned from a stay here. I highly recommend it for location, accommodation and service at a very reasonable price. Very professional, unobtrusive but friendly staff. We had zero issues re cleanliness of our suite, which was a really generous size. I also wish to recommend Paul, the hotel’s concierge. We had booked our holiday last minute and weren’t organised re park visits etc. A quick, efficient meeting with him set us up very well for our stay.
Free shuttle buses to Disney and Universal Parks were on time to the minute, both there and back.
I’d definitely choose to stay here again.
Thank you!

Great Stay here. Lovely location and Accommodation.

We had a great stay at Sonesta ES Suites. It had everything we could have wanted and in a great location. This made a great base for us exploring the parks and International Drive. Right opposite ICON Park which was a great landmark too when driving back to the accommodation after a day at the parks.
Lovely clean place to stay. Really comfortable beds. It had everything we could have wanted and the staff were very helpful.
Breakfast was well run and there was a nice selection of food each morning. We had planned to eat out for breakfast after reading some reviews on here, but we didn't need to as we had all we needed for breakfast and enjoyed it.
We would stay here again and would highly recommend this place.
