    Total rip off at Cabana Bay

    We stayed at Cabana Bay Dec 30 AND 31. We stayed in what was suppose to be considered a nicer suite. The room price was extremely inflated. We paid extral for the Volcano Bay View. The room was very chopped up. It looked like it was for very short and young people. The beds were barely 5 feet long and the toliets were very low to the ground. We never got the room cleaned ever. We received no amenties for getting this suite. The view was of Volcano Bay but that is after you saw the employees back of the park smoking and unloaded stock!!! Kinda of ruined the view. Check in was a complete chaotic mess. WE paid for the fast pass tickets and the tickets for Volcano Bay . WE quickly discovered that we did not buy tickets at all for Volcano Bay which was suppose to be included with the suite and the fast past tickets were 100 dollars each more . All we paid for is a bus to get there. So we ended up paying over 600 more to up grade. The cafes were closed early and crowed and no where to get any food when you were done with park. A complete rip off. We discovered that our fast pass did not work for any of the good rides either. I would never never stay at Cabanana Bay again. NO concierge services nothing special for this suite that was really a small childrens room. With no towels, cleaning service and small toiliets and beds

    It was decently clean, well themed and kept up. Only complaint is that it’s a HUGEEEE hotel and you might have a 1/2 mile walk off the elevator to your door. There were alot of food options and a shake bar that is at an additional cost. Really enjoyable.

    Economy hotel that makes you feel like a million bucks!!

    Although it’s not Universal’s most expensive or exclusive hotel, it is super fun and extremely convenient for families. The theming is amazing, has a bunch of things to do, super conveniently located. The shuttle service to and from the parks works perfectly. Two large pools one with a lazy river and another with a water slide. Perfectly heated for a comfortable swim. Food court is super convenient, staff friendly, Starbucks a lifesaver, bowling ball alley, convenience store, ice scream and milk shake stand, we saw the Madagascar penguins at the lobby at a photo op for kids. I’m telling you, worth it 100%!!!! Kids loved it, parents approved!!!
