    Fantastic Family Easter Holiday. We will be back!!

    We have recently returned after Easter 14 night break at Surfside InnOrlando. This is the smaller hotel of the Endless Summer Resort at Universal. On arrival we had a very quick check in process and got to our rooms. We were a group of 9 and had two double rooms with pool view and a two bedroom family suite. The family suite was clean and spacious but did lack storage space for 5 of us. We were in the suite that was facing the universal bus stop and didn’t get bothered by noise from that or the road. We did however get some noise from floor above. Would recommend asking for 9th floor if you want no noise! Beds comfortable. No duvets just sheets and advice is keep air on slightly warmer or you will wake up cold. The hotel was immaculate and has grab and go cafe, Starbucks and pool bar. Used all 3. Pizza at grab and go is good! Most days we grabbed our coffees and pastries from Starbucks though. There is also a Universal gift shop. Pool is lovely and heated. plenty of loungers and sun most of the day. Cocktails in pool bar are strong and good. Buses to the universal parks run every 10 mins and so easy. We had car hire and parked in garage there with no issues. They charge for that on arrival for your duration. All round great value clean family hotel close to parks and right on International drive with gate to it.

    A great option for Universal

    We escaped the winter blues of Maine for seven nights at Surfside. This really doesn’t feel like a budget hotel and I still can’t believe the nightly cost was less than a so-so chain hotel in Portland, ME, but it is. Everything was clean, the 2 bedroom suites are thoughtfully designed, and all the staff we encountered were polite and attentive. Starbucks in the lobby is a great bonus. The pool area in large, the Sand Bar is fantastic, lifeguards always on duty and the gift shop is well stocked. There’s an activities desk right in the lobby to pick up your park tickets, Christopher at the luggage check-in was awesome! We never waited more than 5 minutes for a bus either at the hotel or at Universal. The food options are great and there is something for everyone. Quality of food was really good, too. We had a great week - so much so that we extended our stay for 3 additional nights. The Superstar shuttle to and from the airport is affordable and extremely convenient. All in all, a solid A from us and we’ll definitely be back.

    A great choice for universal

    We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights while in Orlando and it was the perfect spot for universal. The shuttle bus was never more than a 3 min wait and was very clean and efficient to get to the park hassle free. The room was very spacious and great for travelling with kids as it had a little table/kitchen area. The cafe downstairs had a good range of options and was reasonably priced. Equally the pool area is well designed for kids to be safe while playing and swim vests etc are provided free.

    Great stay

    Good Room clean Pool area large with plenty of beds Lots of lifeguards Regular buses to park - takes less than 10 mins Size of room good (2 bed room) Not as good Food service slow and limited choice You have a microwave in your room, but only plastic cutlery and paper plates so not sure what you are supposed to do with microwave? Check in queue was long - not what you need when you arrive Really enjoyed it though it overall

    The best stay ever in Orlando

    Universals Endless resort surfside in Orlando has to be one of ‘the’ best places we have stayed while in Orlando Florida. This hotel has everything you need from the start to the finish for your holiday away. The massive open reception area is a joy to arrive at and welcomes you in with their amazing surf style area. We were welcomed and given all the information we needed upon arrival including full details about the hotel and all its many amenities. A short walk to the lift and we were then in our very spacious room overlooking the pool. Two king size beds, a huge tv, perfectly laid out bathroom and an area for clothes and in room safe. The best feature though has to be the windows that immersed the room with light and gave you a feeling of space and overlooked what can only be said ‘ a huge pool’ Endless resort surfside has it all. To top it all off, you have the bus service to and from universal studios/ islands of adventure/ Volcano bay that run from 7am until and hour after Citywalk close every night. This is a major major plus as it saves you so much time in your day and as you are a guest of a universal resort, early park admission is included and is so handy for enjoying the parks for longer everyday. The location is also perfect for the bus and trolley service on either the green or red line which allows you constant access to international drive on a regular basis and because of this you can return to your hotel on either of the i ride trolley lines. The best features of Universal’s Endless Resort Surfside is the cleanliness, friendly and helpful nature of all the staff plus the feeling of a secure and safe location while in Orlando. This is a great plus as we have stayed many times in Orlando and this by far the very best stay we have ever had while visiting Orlando. Universal have thought of everything here and if you are looking to stay in Orlando for your next visit, you should definitely consider here. Amenities include a large well stocked restaurant on site, Starbucks, a gym and a games room and a Universal shop for all those items you want including Harry Potter exclusive items. I can’t recommend Universal Endless resort Surfside enough. The best stay ever we have had in Orlando. Love it and will be back many times.
