______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Questions? We’ve got answers! Below you’ll find everything you need to know about the Blue Heron Beach Resort in Orlando, Florida. For further information, please feel free to call us at (407) 387-2200 or 1-888-258-9684.

Renters must be 21 years of age and have a valid government issued identification upon check in.

Daily Housekeeping

In an effort to minimize your nightly room rate and to simultaneously provide you with more privacy, the resort charges a 45.00 departure cleaning fee upon check-in.  This is to ensure that the unit will be clean upon your departure and you will not have to clean it before leaving.   We can provide you with housekeeping services on an “a la carte” basis. For a menu of housekeeping options, please contact the PBX operator at our resort. For your convenience, washers and dryers are located in each suite along with a small starter box of laundry detergent, dishwasher tablets, toilet tissue and paper towels and coffee.

Additional charges may apply for extra towels.

Tidy, Mid-Week or Full Cleaning Services Available.

During your stay here we do have house cleaning services provided on an “a la carte basis."

Our Tidy Service includes: fresh towels, trash service and making beds with your current bedding.

The costs are as follows: One-Bedroom -$20.00, Two-Bedroom-$25.00 for each day you use the service.

Resort Fee

Your nightly room rate does not include our resort fee which is currently set at $15.00 per night. For your convenience this rate covers the costs associated with a bundle of extras including 1) shuttle service to Epcot's Ticket and Transportation Center and Seaworld. 2) free newspapers 3) free WiFi in all units, WiFi available in the main lobby and poolside. 4) free local calls. 5) free incoming and outgoing faxes. Also available complimentary are a limited number of safety deposit boxes. Please inquire at the front desk upon check-in.

Many ask us why we don’t simply include the resort fee in with the nightly rate. Please let us take this opportunity to explain why we do not. The Blue Heron Beach Resort is a condominium hotel. As such, each of our suites is privately owned. The revenue generated through the nightly rate is therefore divided between the management company and the owner of the suite occupied. The amenities and services included in the resort fee are provided by, and paid for by the management company. For example, the complimentary shuttle service provided to the selected Theme Parks is paid for by VacationCondos.com. So, revenue generated by the resort fee needs to be retained by the management company only to help pay for this service.

Processing Fee

There is a $3.00 nightly processing fee.

 

What To Bring

Our suites are furnished with hair dryers, a broom & dust pan, iron & ironing board, and a starter kit of small bath amenities (shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion) and small box of laundry detergent. Since we do not offer daily housekeeping, these items are not replenished during your stay. We also provide a small starter kit of amenities for your kitchen, including dishwashing soap, a roll of paper towels, and a dishwashing cloth. These items are not replenished during your stay. Kitchen utensils and cookery items include sauce pans, frying pans, roasting pan, a knife block set, serving spoons and forks, a spatula, serving bowls, platter, baking tray, corkscrew, colander, water pitcher, cutting board, etc.

Pack'N'Play's are available. Please inquire with the agent when making your reservation or at the front desk.

Outside Food and Beverage is not allowed poolside.

We do not permit soliciting or the distribution of handbills or flyers on our property. This is an issue that affects every area hotel. Despite our best efforts, from time to time you may notice a restaurant flyer or menu that has been placed under your door. We recommend that you do not order food from these establishments. Many of these vendors operate illegally and without a license from the health department. Guest services can provide you with several safe and reliable delivery options.

If you feel you will need contingency items during your stay, you may want to consider bringing some of these things with you. Or, if you feel you would like to have a blender, or toaster oven, etc. while you are here, you may want to bring yours from home if you are driving here. Please remember that the units are privately owned condos that the owner makes available for rental for your enjoyment.

Packages 

The Blue Heron Beach Resort accepts packages for all of our guests. Packages are stored in the reservations office by number until picked up by the guests at Guest Services. A package handling fee of $ 5.00 per day, per package, up to 10lbs, will be charged to the guest. Packages over 10lbs will incur a $10 charge.  Once a guest departs the hotel all packages are returned to sender. We do not hold packages after a guest departs.
