The hotel was great. Great facilities. Awesome location. Bedding douvets need to be updated. Room size was great as well. We will definitely be back.

Amazing hotel with everything you could want or need onsite. Our room was spacious and very clean and the beds were super comfy, it also looked onto Volcano Bay which was a bonus! The shuttle to Universal Citywalk is also a huge plus. This is our second time staying here and we would definitely stay again.

Great for value and facilities for anyone travelling with kids. A porter service was not offered and would have been nice. It is a very large resort and when travelling with kids and in my case an infant along with multiple luggage items, it was an exhausting effort to go from front desk to our room located top floor and the totally opposite end of the from the elevator.

Cool hotel and close to all the action

Pros: Layout, pool, location, and decor
Cons: Bed/Bedding was not great.
Location: Universal Studios was great but you could do the 2 main parks in a day....depending on crowds. Disneyworld is too big and crowded.
Good sized hotel, easy parking, great pool, decor and close to all tourist spots. Eateries were reasonably priced and not excessive but not of a high standard. Courtesy bus takes you straight to the Universal.
