Close to universal resort. Great decoration and theme.
Requested park view, could see nothing but bamboo. Limited amount of pillows.
We thought beds were very comfortable. Free Upgrade was great! Theme was fun and details were impressive.
Room furniture needed a little TLC. Nothing that upholstery cleaners couldn’t fix. But all in all very comfortable and spacious! Would definitely recommend and return.
We went to breakfast and talked with friends until 12:30 or 1:00 and were charged a second day for parking!!!!!!!!!
Excellent Suite and activities for families
We loved the resort and room decor, cleanliness, friendly staff, fun pool with water slide and lazy river, and the suite was set up perfect for getting ready with three kids (separate shower/toilet/sink and mirror). It was in an excellent location with easy access to the Universal parks. Shuttle was quick and easy. Our teens (18, 17 and 13) LOVED Cabana Bay!
While not the most elegant place to stay it is a great value if you want to stay on Universal property. Early admission and bus transport to park made All the difference in our Harry Potter experience! And the cafeteria had very well prepared food (and large portions) for breakfast/dinner at a reasonable price. Important for us as my husband has to watch diet due to diabetes.
It’s was close to universal
They put us in the wrong room when we asked and paid for a room with a view of Volcano Bay. Then we moved to another room and the TV was broken. We called them several times but the TV remained broken. The place has no proper restaurants. Only a diner/supermarket kids place. We were very dissatisfied
Great place for the family!
We really enjoyed the pools, lazy river, movie on the lawn, bowling, and the food. We love it!
It's a bit pricey, but not terrible.
Fun Place location not the best
Fun theming especially for baby boomers. I would rate the hotel as slightly above a Disney value resort with the theming, facilities and location/ transportation all just a little better.
The location is not very convient to the parks and transportation was good but like any bus system there was a wait. With such high traffic roads I can see why walking is not a good option. All in all if staying in site again I would make a different choice.
Great hotel, very clean and highly recommended
We will be back! This hotel is really cool and convenient. It was sold out while we were there, but the way it's laid out, it doesn't feel as though there are people everywhere. Lots to do, always clean, shuttle service to the parks was awesome. Truly a great experience!
Nice we loved it
Food court & pool lazy river
Love the fact they have life guards at the lazy river and pools!!!
Overall this was a great place! I was disappointed that our rooms were not cleaned until 5:00 pm. We came back from the park to take a dip in the pool before dinner and housekeeping was still in our room at 5:00. Very late in my opinion.
