    Love the mid-century vibe, but it’s getting a little run down. Housekeeping was awful! Didn’t make the beds or clean the room one day and said we had a Do Not Disturb sign which was not true. Waited forever to get clean towels sent to the room. Not the best experience after being at Universal all day.

    Fun, retro experience.

    We loved the mid-century decor throughout the property. They did a great job with that. We has an 8th floor 2-queen bed room facing Volcano Bay. The view was a highlight. Our reservation across the street at Aventura was not fully executed, and they were full, so we checked at Cabana Bay across the street. They took care of us and had a room ready to check-in at 1:00 PM. Room was clean, and bright, and we really enjoyed the retro touches. We will bring our own pillows next time, and will not hesitate to book here again. Bus transit to parks was convenient. Also, Vy at the front desk was very personable and very efficient.

    Lovely hotel, will return!

    Everything about staying here was great. The key cards are personalised and you get to keep them which is a nice touch. The rooms are a great size for a family of five or even 6! There is a proper storage area for your luggage and plenty of space to move around. The kitchen facilities are good but we didn’t use them much. There is a fridge and a microwave. The laundry facilities were great $3 per cycle and you can pay by card. Wish I’d bought detergent earlier in the holiday though. Again to buy on site is $3 per wash as they come in individual sachets so not expensive but my son needed a sensitive skin detergent which was easily available at Walmart. I left behind the excess for others to use. I would have packed less if I’d known how good the washing facilities were before going. The pools attached to the hotel were lovely and the kids enjoyed the lazy river and the pool with the slide. Volcano bay is a very short walk away from the internal family rooms in the continental building. Parking was easy, there was always a space. I really loved staying here and would love to return.

    Mattresses were👎👎👎👎👎

    The mattress was sunk in at the center, and very, very soft, No support at all..my husband kept rolling into me. None of the buildings are marked, we had to slow down to see the building names on small plaques outside each bldg. The staff was very nice and helpful, that was the only plus.

    As a UO member, my stay was horrible. We picked a pool view and got a view of a laundry mat. We was not notified that there was no more pool view rooms until we called about it.The bathroom doors didn’t close and the shower and tub ran at the same time.
