    HHN 30 trip

    Booked a package deal for horror nights months ago. Of course horror nights was canceled but we decided to keep our trip because airfare was cheap and we were not taking the kids. We were supposed to stay at the Aventura but it closed and they booked us at Cabana bay. We stayed here before and it was okay 2 years ago. They gave us a volcano view tower room.This stay was awful! This hotel has gone way down. It is overbooked, overcrowded, Screaming kids and drunks are everywhere. The room smells like mildew and the walls are paper thin. There were several parties in the rooms on our floor. Also, the crew at volcano bay likes to do work at night so don't be surprised if you hear back up alarms or a leaf blower going all night. The staff is short handed and unfriendly which I don't blame them having to deal with all the people and no help. I wish I would have stayed off site as the early admission is hardly needed right now. It would have made for a much better trip.

    Fantastic Experience

    The employees here really made this experience amazing. Everyone was really friendly and went the extra mile. The room was spotless, the common areas are all cleaned regularly and well cared for. We will be back very soon and would recommend CCBR to anyone, anytime. It is a bit of a maze and the walkway to the park is a bit wonky (around your tail to get to your elbow), but it's still faster to walk than it is to take a shuttle when you factor in idle sit time and having to walk from the back of city walk. Only complaint would be that the beds are very soft... it makes a queen feel more like a twin when there's 2 people, but who wants to sleep hen when there's playing to do ?!?

    Cabana Bay Resort

    Best place to stay for price, convenience and location. The shuttle buses are on time. Unless you are doing other things in Orlando, once you park your car you don't need to move it. Overall experience was awesome.

    Relax at the beach

    Our trip to Cabana Bay was awesome. The safety precautions were on point and the staff was amazing. The loction is ideal for going to the parks. The foif options at the food court are awesome. Try the cabana Burger add the Bacon for a taste sensation . The pancakes at breakfast were great as well. You can't go wrong with thus resort. I'm already planning our next trip.

    Give them another chance

    Unfortunately this place was amazing at the beginning but now is just a cheap hotel with the brand name of universal. Do not stay there food, the rooms and cleanliness was terrible and staff in the restaurant area were so unfriendly
