Portofino
Our stay at the hotel was absolutely amazing. The staff are so helpful and go above and beyond. The hotel and grounds were very clean and tidy all of the time. The club lounge was brilliant and definitely worth paying the extra for the food and drink available. The boat that takes you to universal and IOA ran every 5 minutes so we never had to wait too long. The added bonus of the express pass with this hotel was great. Wonderful holiday had by all.

We loved our time at the Portofino! Being able to take the boats to City Walk was such a huge plus. Once we parked our car, we never had to move it again during our stay.
