Beautiful Hotel

I was attending a conference at Portofino Bay for work for a few days. I was immediately welcomed by staff on my arrival and luckily there was someone to help me with my luggage and to show me to my room. The hotel is very spread out and I am not sure I would have found my room without assistance! I stepped outside into the courtyard to make my way to my room and immediately felt like I was in Venice! The boats, the buildings, the cobblestone felt like Italy! I was pretty impressed as I have been to Venice and I almost felt like I was there again. I got to my room and found it to be a very large room with a spacious bathroom. The beds were incredibly comfortable including the pillows. There was a coffee maker in the room but the only fridge was a minibar and you could not store anything in there. I was told you can rent a small fridge if needed. There were a couple of restaurants/cafes/ bars on the property with excellent service. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. There was a boat available that made regular trips to and from Universal Studios or you could walk there. I would definitely stay here again! This hotel has spoiled me for all others!

Great stay

This is a very comfortable hotel to base a visit to Universal and its don't miss Harry Potter attractions. The hotel itself is very good and their restaurants varied enough that you can stay on site. Easy access to the park, early entry and the express access meant our longest wait was under 30 minutes.

Great Hotel and convenient to go to Universal Studio

This hôtel is really nice. The decoration helps to get on the Universal mood. The rooms are huge, recent and clean. The bed was also very great. We had the view on the lake/river that goes to Universal. The pool is massive and ideal to relax. The restaurant near the pool is really good value. And with the room comes the fast pass to both parks which is a must have to enjoy the day.

Presidents day weekend at Universal - Portofino Bay

Great Hotel, with the Universal Studios express pass and early admission, fast and frequent boat transport to/from the park, Portofino is great. Nice rooms for 2 adults/2 kids, nice beach pool, good restaurants. Not an inexpensive hotel but with the express pass and early admission benefit (no waiting in lines the entire weekend of jam packed rides and shows) it's totally worth it.
