This resort is amazing everything about the hotel is fantastic, friendly helpful staff, good food at very reasonable prices. The hotel is very close to the universal parks and has its own private garden walk into the parks. Would definitely recommend, way better standards than the Disney hotels which we have stayed in previously. We got upgraded to a suite...

Great location, but customer service was off the chart. Awesome!! Better than some Disney resorts. Lazy river was great and has fun for all family. Clean and cozy. Quick transportation to Citywalk. Great selection of food.

We had an issue with our card keys and after the 3rd time addressing the situation with the front desk they gave us complimentary meals for our...

Love it!! Felt like in the 50's just waiting for Lucy Ricardo to pop out somewhere Only thing no logo shop with the caracters and is right next to Volcano Bay so location is pretty awsome if you visiting Universal Parks

Next time I would maybe opt for one of the other universal hotels. This one is nice enough, but misses luxury touches such as real water glasses and the room have plastic chairs. The hotel is cute and the kids loved the pools, but it felt a little like staying in a swanky Motel 6.

We have stayed here several times, with and without the kids. Every single time, they do not disappoint us. Great service, great amenities, great food. Lazy River great size, Slide was great for kids, they also have water fun toddler section next to pool. Great time! Recommend to everyone!

We had a great stay at Cabana Beach. Absolutely nothing negative about it! Clean like new rooms and great food at the resort. Quick and frequent shuttles to the parks. We had a great time! We loved Islands of Adventure a little better than Universal Studios. The 3D rides can make you sick after awhile. The coasters and the Harry...

We went for our sons 6th birthday, this hotel had everything we were looking for; easy access to the parks, pools, character meetings, food onsite. The details the hotel has done for the theme is amazing! The bedding and even the little hotel shampoo and conditioners are of the time period! My son especially loved the cars out front of...

We loved this hotel - especially as it is the "budget" option at Universal! My husband and I stayed in one of the new towers, Beachside, and found the room to be extremely clean and a large amount of space. The biggests benefit are the two pools - we never struggled to find a sunbed, and the Bayliner Diner, one...
