    A Great Vacation

    We were a group of 6 Harry Potter fans and were really excited about the trip. It met and exceeded ALL expectations. We had a blast. This hotel was so close, the walk barely took 10 minutes. We enjoyed being able to take a break in the day and relax until our evening adventures! (Dr Doom at sunset, anyone?)

    Greatest perk of this hotel is the express pass and proximity to parks

    • This hotel has the cheapest rate out of all the premier hotels that offer the express pass perk. That is really the biggest perk of staying here is that you get unlimited express pass for the duration of your stay including your check in and check out days. The path to the parks is about a 7-10 minute walk to citywalk and it is along the waterway. They also have the water taxi service available to take as well, but it takes longer than walking. They have a bell service to hold your luggage. When we arrived, the bell services in the drop off area were very friendly, nice, and quick about loading our cart to bring to bell services for us. However on your check out day, get to bell services early in the morning as the line was long to drop off your luggage in the morning as everyone else was also checking out and heading to the parks. The rooms are nice quality, but not very roomy. The beds are comfortable. The nice thing is these rooms can hold 5 people if you request a rollaway bed. The not nice thing is the rollaway bed barely fits in the room. The sink area is separate from the toilet/shower area which is nice for multiple people getting ready. The first employee we encountered at the front desk was pretty shy, but the second employee we encountered was very nice, friendly, and helpful. There were some problems that we ran into during check in with our room keys and express passes. First of all, it takes a long time to print the room keys/express passes, even the employees acknowledge that. We checked in in the morning before our room was ready. So she printed the express passes for me, so we could head to the parks, and then when she tried to link them to the reservation, they did not work, so I had to wait there for her to print another whole new set of cards. When I got the new set, she told me that we would get a text with our room number and we would be able to go straight to our room. We did get the text later that day saying our room was ready and to return to the front desk, but it had no room number. So we had to make another trip to the front desk. This employee said that the passes/keys had to get reprinted again. So we had to wait a third time for all the passes to reprint. Then we were finally able to go to the room. The front desk employee was helpful in giving us clear directions to the room. If you are parking a car, know that that is an extra charge (charged to your room balance) and it is a pretty decent walk away (it is down by the luau area). Overall if you are interested in the express pass (which you should be) then this hotel is great because it comes included, and therefore you are basically paying for a nice quality hotel with the perk of the express passes. You also get to get into the theme parks an hour early. Which is great for Islands of Adventure especially because of Velocicoaster and Hagrids motorbikes due to those not being included in express pass, so you can still get in early and ride those with a “relatively shorter” wait. Overall we have stayed at this hotel a few times, and if we return to universal Orlando, we will stay here again.

    Security Staff Rocks!

    There is always something you can improve on or something not so good. But in this case I would like to point out the security team´s GREAT work. Especially JERRY SWANSON's. I had an issue when leaving the hotel. What I can say is that Jerry's AWESOME work helped me a lot. He was very kind and understanding and in a matter of minutes was able to track down what had happened to a box I had left "in theory" out of my car when leaving. He took the time, understood I was very upset because that box contained stuff very expensive and important to me, and reverted in a matter of minutes with great kindness and resolution. Must say I have NEVER EVER dealt with security people that worked this way at different hotels I have been traveling around the world. I ended up thinking Jerry belonged to the Customer relations team. I don't know what else to say, but that you should hire more people like him. DEFINITELY!

    Great Express Pass Value

    This is a beautiful property with many great amenities. Great staff! Great location! We stayed one night to take advantage of the express pass and transportation for 2 days. It was so worth it just for this.

    Birthday Trip

    We stayed at Loews Royal Pacific Resort for 8 days for my husband's 60th Birthday & the experience was fantastic! We had a water view room which was amazing & the whole hotel was beautiful & tranquil. We stayed at Port Orleans French Quarter for 10 days prior to our arrival which we also enjoyed but was a totally different experience.
