Wow. I loved every minute of my stay here! Each and everyone of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice and clean. The only downside was the bathrooms, they are very dated and the shower is poor. I'm sure the hotel would have been 5 star when it first opened but times have changed and it...

I stayed here for one night whilst visiting the Universal parks. The hotel is perfectly located for this and is located a few minutes walk from the park and is also connected to areas of the Universal resort by boat and the inclusion of the unlimited Universal Express passes makes this a perfect place to stay when visiting the parks....

Hard Rock was great. We walked over to Universal after receiving our complimentary fast pass. Rooms were nice. Kimberly from the front desk had snacks, popcorn and a movie pass delivered to our room on the last night of our stay. We took the water taxi back to the hotel.

We booked this place for the convenience to the parks and the universal express pass that they give you. Worked well. The rooms are good, all you need is there. Quite a walk from reception to some of the rooms so don't forget stuff! There's a really nice pool with sandy area and beach volleyball to chill at when you're...

Good points: excellent location and lovely walk or boat ride to the entrance of Universal. The front of line passes are invaluable at busy times. It's worth staying here just for those. The pool and entertainment was excellent for the kids. Rooms are of a good size. Nice touch having a special birthday badge. Bad points: charging $20 a day...

The rooms were not quite as nice as I expected for the price (300+ dollars). A birthday cake awaited me on arrival although my birthday was two days later. Nice touch, though!

“Not worth paying for pool view, save your money as all rooms the same. Elevators are in the middle with very long hallways - choose wisely.”
