Good hotel but loud music on Sat nights
Good hotel but Saturday night there is a hotel opposite with rooftop bar that plays loud music till 2am. I complained and did not go down. GOt some dinner vouchers in compensation but not ideal for a family on holiday
Steven, gb10 night family trip
Good 6.0
One night stay
Only had time to stay one night. Shower didn’t work. Tap to turn on was broken. Too late to report. Coffee was not a good taste. Otherwise everything else was good.
MARGARET, gb1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Perfect for universal
Excellent customer service. Good size clean and comfortable room. Wide range of food choice with large portions so my daughter and i shared. We also got re fillable drinks cups at $16 for 2 weeks, great value. 2 pool areas open late. Steps away from volcano bay water park and free shuttle to universal/ islands of asventure. Very security conscious with room key cards needed for access. All purchases can be charged to room _ set a daily limit on card at check in. Highly reccommended.
Susan, gb4 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Good hotel, but improvement & hotter water needed
Hotel is in great location for universal and volcano bay, although this is to be expected. Rooms are nice and tidy, the only annoying issue we had was the lack of hot water, the shower barely ran lukewarm, which after a few days gets rather annoying. Hotel staff are pretty good, except our Uber handed an item into reception, which in fairness we had left in the Uber, and it could not be found. Whilst this was only a small irritable issue for us as there was nothing of major important, it was rather frustrating that the staff did not take better care. Had this item Been something of importantance we would have been very annoyed.

Exceptional 10.0
Wonderfully stress free stay
Came over for 4 nights with my husband to do Hallowen Horror Nights, decided to stay in a budget hotel thinking "it's just the 2 of us, who cares if it's not the best"(have previously stayed in Hard Rock). But it was so much more, staff were wonderful and helpful - much friendlier than Hard Rock. Room was spotless, shower great. Hairdryer, fridge, iron and coffee maker in room. The hotel theming is lovely, food court was tasty, and at night they had a hot trolley filled with pizzas and chicken wings that you could grab with no wait, which was AMAZING after a hard slog round the HHN event. The transport from the hotel to Citywalk was amazing. They've definitely got it perfected. There was only 1 time we arrived at a bus stop with no bus already there, and it appeared after about 30 seconds. EVERY other time there was already a bus(sometimes two) there ready to walk straight on. Almost always got a seat on these as they were so regular. This made it super easy to go between parks and hotel multiple times a day, and it involved zero stress - unlike the Disney shuttles which are always rammed. Location great, 5 minutes on the bus. There's a walkway to Volcano Bay, again maybe 5 minutes to walk there. We didn't use the hotel pool but it looked nice; bar area, slide and lazy river. Would 100% stay here again. It was great for us as a couple, but wouldn't hesitate to take our children here! Plenty to keep little one's amused. Very family friendly.
