Lovely resort

Royal Pacific is a tropical treat! The staff is super friendly and the grounds (with the exception of cigarette butts in the pool area) are beautiful. If you are looking for an affordable, comfortable place to stay, this is the resort for you!

Expensive hotel but worth the money!

We stayed here for 1 night during a 2 week holiday in Orlando while visiting the Universal Parks. We were initially hesitant to book due to the high price but are glad we decided to! The resort itself is stunning; when you approach it (by car) it immediately strikes you. The rooms, although very nice and spacious with all amenities you need, could maybe do with updating. Otherwise all areas of the hotel are spotless and impressive. We used the boat service to travel to and from the parks which is very convenient. When considering the cost, you get express passes included when you stay here. The parks were very busy and we used the passes both days, so if we'd have bought these (which we probably would have) I believe they are $60 each so $240 in total. When considering the quality of the hotel, the boat service and the express passes I do believe this was money well spent.

Nice hotel. Big rooms

Nice place. Big rooms. Good beds.Horrible sound proofing. You could hear all that happened next room and in the corridor. If you are a light sleeper you will suffer.The hotel cost me 400 usd per night. I only paid for it because of the express pass included for hotel guests. The room is worth 200 and the pass 200. If you are not going to the parks and not interested in the express pass.....don't stay there.I think all hotels should offer free internet, free water (in this place water costs 7 usd plus tax) and free coffee.The hotel restaurants are decent.

Just like being in Italy

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary. Wanted to get away for a few days. It was the best time to go. No lines and not crowded. The hotel was excellent. When you left the parks it was really like being in Portofino. I know because I was there in Italy. The staff took care of our every needs. They online we were celebrating and they sent up a gift basket and some wine. I was completely shocked. The gesture brought tears to my eyes. You truly don't get treated like this in Disney. We will be making this a yearly trip for us. The rooms were beautiful and immaculate. You must make time to spend around the pool as this was very relaxing and the food and service was great. If you can't get to Italy, this is the next best thing. Go. You won't be sorry.

Italy in Orlando

They have done a wonderfully job recreating the city of portofino. In the early morning as you sip your coffee from Starbucks you will see what I mean. Its tranquil and its amazing on how they can recreate a city and generate a authentic feeling.
