Best trip my husband and I ever had! It was romantic, fun, exciting, and just perfectly happy!. My only issue was Volcano Bay was closed and we paid for 4 days of 3 park passes and 4 days of fast passes with no access to the park. Very sad because we heard so many amazing things about Volcano Bay! Loved the food and drink! Swizzle was amazing!!!

This was our 2nd time staying at this resort. The first time in 2016, the front desk staff and outside staff were more attentive. We dont care at all for the food at the Bayliner Restaurant. Its expensive and not great tasting at all. The food from Galaxy Bowl is better. The resort is very clean. The pools are awesome. The gift shop is nice. The rooms are decent but the towels are quite rough. Overall, it's a nice place and we'd stay again.

Absolutely no complaints. Great pool area and lazy river. Chose hotel for early entry and easy transportation to Universal Studios park. There was always a shuttle bus waiting to board - never once had to wait.

"Fun hotel"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 16, 2019 NEW
After reading some of the reviews of this hotel, I seriously considered staying somewhere else. What a mistake that would have been. This hotel is a lot of fun; the rooms and the location were great. We came from a Disney hotel, and stayed in the Americana wing. We had no problems or issues at all. The one thing I would say about this property is that it is big....There are a lot of people staying here and a lot of staff working here. The is a bit of wear and tear that should be dealt with in the elevators and door handles, but that is the only flaw I could find. The garden walk to and from the parks was lovely. We skipped the hustle and bustle of main security and got to discuss our day while walking back.

Pretty hotel, nice pools and amenities. Universal shuttle was very accessible and convenient. AC was out in our room. Took twice of going to the desk before it was fixed but it was fixed quickly the second time. Room to me was a little tight for 6 people but only because the sinks and bathroom is very close to the two beds.

30min lines for check in. Rooms from the 1980’s. Loud and uncomfortable. Pull out is more like a table than bed. Worn furniture and carpet. More like a giant motel than anything else. This place must invest in bots to write reviews.
