    40th bday fail

    We booked a trip to Universal instead of Disney for my 40th bday because I wanted to try a UO resort. We originally booked the Aventura, which I have wanted to stay at since it was built. A week before our arrival date we get notice that the Aventura is closing the day before we arrive (thank you COVID). We were moved to Cabana Bay, unfortunately that didn’t appeal to us do we upgraded to the Royal Pacific. Now I wish we hadn’t spent the extra money. The first room we were given smelled musty and moldy. We asked to be moved - the front desk was very accommodating and moved us. The second room was dirty- there were crusty glass rings on the side table, and hair and something that looked like tar or feces on the shower wall. By this time it was late in the evening and we were tired so did not ask for another room. Not something you want to see, even when there’s not a pandemic... especially when there is. During the week room service would come when we requested but the room still never felt clean. Overall the value we received for the cost was not worth it and we will not be staying here again.

    As beautiful as ever

    Our fave hotel at USF (tho we did love vibe at Portofino too), a pleasure to check in w/pleasant staff. We chose Tower 1 cuz closest to garden path for walking (Tower 3 is closest to water ferry). Also it's very convenient for our 1st try w/using a scooter, right out front door. Room w/beautiful view of front garden ponds, frogs & IOA lights. Again I say that Express Pass is soooo handy for front of line, even if crowds less cuz of Covid. We got the FL resident room rate promo w/park pass "buy a day, rest of yr free till 12/24". We'll be back! :D Dining always a pleasure at Islands w/Mustapha (got Employee of the Year I heard, yay!) for delish food & comfy booths. The mgr Sidney greets you at the door & is always available to help. Jake's has great vibe & view, & Tuk Tuk is the new market right by front desk. We ate there after check in, very handy. The very helpful Housekeeping director Jake & his asst mgr Cory were there, I asked to say hello again & thank them for past help. Jake explained daily h'keeping is on Covid hold, but it's no biggie as the room is loaded & u only hafta ask for any refill needs. No problema, relish the beauty! :D

    Save your money - hotel is dirty and staff unresponsive

    Was excited about this hotel but they are taking too many shortcuts during pandemic. Shower was full of mold, towels were torn, hallways were full of trash, dirt and were not vacuumed the 3 days we were there. Desk chair torn and worn down. When I notified front desk, I was told they would tell housekeeping, but never saw or heard from them. Save your money if you are looking for a nice hotel. Very disappointed and expected more from Universal.

    One Of The Originals That Can't Be Beat

    Before Sapphire Falls opened we used to stay at Royal Pacific and Hard Rock; we never did make it to Portifino Bay. After this weeks visit to RP that will all change. For us it will be a return to the three original resorts. For this visit we stayed at RP on the club level and they spoiled us. Everyone at this resort spoiled us with friendliness, professionalism, a high level of guest services, and all around making us feel at home. The staff in the club lounge went above and beyond every day we were in there. The snacks were great and the lounge was spotless. Our room was clean and well decorated. The bed was super comfortable. I cannot say enough about how great this stay was other than we will return, of course. The resort and the parks are doing an incredible job of keeping guests safe from covid-19. If you are unsure about whether or not you should travel here do not worry just wear a mask and follow the will be fine. Definitely stay on resort.

    Great hotel!

    I stayed here for my visit and really loved it. It’s a premier hotel so express passes are included. It’s definitely worth the money to stay with that perk. Plus the hotel is extremely clean and well maintained during Covid. I felt very comfortable with my stay and really enjoyed it.
