Great check in (just a shame we didn't get that upgrade as we stayed for 5 nights) and beautiful rooms. We really loved the in room electric guitar menu and hire! Pool was wonderful and the walk (or water taxi) to Universal so easy. Loads of places to eat in the locality. we need to go back!

Our room was spotless, quiet, and it was so convenient to get to the theme parks, either by walking or taking the water taxi.

We were in an accessible room, and it was so easy to...
