    Loved everything about it

    Loved it! Amazing experience, smells amazing, every employee was extremely kind and helpful! We stayed on the club level, that was a great experience in itself. We will be booking another stay at this location.

    Stay

    Very cool hotel with cool vibe. Pool is cool, great music. Stayed on the first floor by the pool which was great for kids. Very worth the Express passes for the park. Rooms need updating. Carpets are old. Bathrooms need renovating. The cleanliness of the bathrooms were poor. There were hairs in the sink in the bathroom with the toilet. Showers are old. The lights didn’t work by the bed, so room was dark. They didn’t fix the lights until the following day. They sent someone to fix them but he didn’t. Service was also poor. The front desk was not polite. They did not make you feel welcome as a guest. No one came to serve us by the pool.

    Best Place to Stay When Going to Universal Orlando

    Front desk staff are amazing, especially Carolina! I changed my reservation three times within a couple of weeks for the stay, and they were able to accommodate repeatedly- every time happily! Check in was a breeze, valet was fast and friendly, and the hotel is the closest to the parks by far (I mean they are all a short walk, but for lazy people like me, this is the closest- especially if the pool is open; the cut through makes the walk LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES). Beautiful pool and the easily best restaurant @ all of Universal Orlando (The Palm). I'm a local who staycays @ Universal somewhat often because of kids :), and this is the best of the three luxury resorts there ( #1 Hard Rock; #2 Portofino; #3 Royal Pacific). They are all nice, but hard Rock is the best there.

    Great vacation spot

    This is great resort for all ages. Our party ranged from age 4 to 70, and there was something was everyone. Location to the parks can't be beat, as well as included express passes. Water taxi location was right outside the door and drops you off right beside the entrance to Universal. I have never stayed at a hotel where ALL of the staff is so friendly. All the food was great. We loved the walk in pool. Not too deep for the little ones and even had a water slide. BOOK THIS HOTEL - IT'S AWESOME!
