    My family and I had a last minute book for this hotel! It honestly goes above and beyond! I loved it! The rooms are amazing perfectly themed with the theme park associated! There are so many activities to do in the hotel, bowling, arcade, a pool with a slide, it even has its owns Starbucks! It’s is walking distance to the universals volcano bay! A 5 min bus (from the theme park), to the theme park! And u honestly don’t have to wait. The cost benefit is unheard off, a great price! If you are looking for a great price and awsome experience! You NEED to go to Cabana Bay!

    A Mid Century Marvel

    Truly enjoyed the entire hotel experience. Gorgeous decor and quite the relaxing stay. Restaurants had very good food, and I just enjoyed the vibe. My next time will be in a suite to experience different rooms!

    Room Not As Imagined

    We were definitely disappointed in the quality of the room. The room was "well used". The couches looked very old and worn out, the bathroom floor seemed dingy, the shower curtain was torn in multiple places, the handheld shower head was broken so it had to stay in one position and you could not move it up or down or tilt it without it falling out of the base, we were told the exhaust fans in the bathroom were "silent" but they did nothing at all which made our entire room even more humid when we showered and it never cleared out, we found popcorn on the floor that wasn't ours, and we felt that overall the room was just not very clean. And we were on the 4th floor and the elevator was broken 4 of the 7 days we stayed there. For the price we paid I expected the rooms to be much nicer than they were. The beds were comfortable and the staff was very pleasant and nice.

    Awesome Time!

    Awesome time from check in to check out. Getting of the highway we were right at our hotel. Check in was a breeze. Temperature checks were easy and convenient. Theme park transportation was quick and easy. Got to ride everything multiple times!

    Excellent personal service from Ronnie

    Ronnie, a manager at Cabana Bay, helped us when we got lost. He went well over my expectations when he personally guided us to our destination, a lunch with a Cabana Bay guest. Lunch at the Hideaway Grill was really good, too--hummus, pita, vegetable sticks, veggie burger, fries, cheese fries, and a Greek salad.
