    Room not ready til late

    It would be good to be given an approximate time of the room being ready. We arrived early at 11.30am and were prepared to wait but we were left hanging around the hotel waiting for a text, which we finally received at 5.15pm, far later than we imagined it would be. Everything else great though, a lovely place to stay.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Avoid, avoid, avoid

    We were stunned - the place is going through a major refit - no water in the rooms between 10am and 5pm and don't get me started on the drilling and banging that went on, you guessed between 10am and 5pm! We were visiting from the UK - our body clocks were a bit out of kilter and a wash on arriving in our room would have been nice as would a nap in the afternoon. Don't waste your money.

    Famil stay

    Booked the night the staff were ok but not that helpful. Expensive for what you get. Ok if you are going to the parks but I have stayed in some expensive hotels which were a lot better and staff made you feel special. If I was comparing to Disney hotels, the treatment was better there. Pool was nice. But for the price I paid I would expect a suite as I ended up upgrading

    A beautiful setting!

    Only there for one night, next time would atay for 2. A gorgeous setting with opera playing on the Tuesday evening. Hige bed which was super comfy aftrr the day in the park. This hotel also provide Express Passes which we found invaluable for swiftly getting on rides. All in all a fantastic stay.

    Great use of Tesco Clubcard vouchers, great location of hotel for Universal theme parks and the water taxi was a lovely bonus. Room key was also an express pass for all the rides.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    If you want to stay in a Universal Resorts hotel this would be a good choice. The hotel over looks a bay from the boats take of for Universal City Walk/ The parks. It is very peaceful at most times and in addition to multiple dinning options you can always take the boat to Universal City Walk. If you are three or more guests per room it may actually cost you cheaper to get this hotel instead of paying for express passes separately.
