Amazing place

The entire stay at Cabana Bay was perfect. Not a single downside. We travelled as a family of 4. Myself, partner, daughter and Mother in Law. Daughter and MIL had a standard room and we opted for one of the suit type rooms, so we could all spend time in the lounge area, which was great. We asked for rooms on the same floor but for the first couple of days they did not have, they were very apologetic but we did not really care. However after a few days they sorted the issue out and gave us another suite! I paid extra for our room before we arrived but they gave us another one free of charge, we were staying 14 nights! Amazing. There is so much to do in the resort and my daughter (9yrs) met loads of friends and loved the pools. Of course with Universal on site, and it being our favourite park we were there a lot. We even got the express passes a couple of days. We love it at Universal. We met up with friends, both American and English people while we were there. I always walked to Universal while the family and friends did the bus, which they never had to wait long for, however a couple of times I beat them back! The pools/lazy river etc were all great. Of course not great when the rain comes down but what can you do? We went bowling! Or just had a few drinks at the bar. It really was perfect, and we miss it very much. Will be booking for 2018.

went day after martin luther king day, did not need a fast pass, did a lot in both parks in one day, especially since had teenage girl that had to do every spell with wand, only place crowded was harry potter, but not bad, loved the shuttle service, absolutely no problem, the drivers were so nice

Wonderful throwback in time

I had never stayed at a resort hotel before and after staying here, I may never do theme parks any other way. This hotel is just fun! The second you step in the lobby, you feel you are back in the simpler times and you leave your cares at the door. The theme carries throughout and is very soothing. Our room was a bit small but so comfortable that we didn't even really notice and the beds are the most comfortable we have ever slept in at a hotel. Everything you need is on site or easily accessible, including very efficient and reliable free bus service to the Universal parks. If you have the energy, the walk (about a mile on a beautiful path) is really great (or take the water taxi from Saphire Falls hotel across the street). The pool was very family friendly even though we spent little time there. We didn't try the food so can't speak to that, but our overall experience with everything else was amazing! Highly recommend, especially if you want to affordably take advantage of early access to Universal parks.

Great stay at Cabana Bay

We visited in January for two nights mainly to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Traveled with my spouse and 2 teens and stayed in the Tower poolside suite. We loved the 50's decor and thought that it was a good value for the space. Everyone was very nice, the property is clean and both rooms and public spaces are clean. There's plenty to do for adults and children of all ages and even if the weather isn't great there are onsite activities such as bowling and arcade that can help pass the time enjoyably. There was some construction near our building but it wasn't noisy and didn't impact us at all. Would come again and recommend highly!

Fantastic, except the cost to eat.

We thought the place was great! Very friendly staff, clean, and well laid out. The pool was absolutely huge, and the food tasted great. The only real problem we had was the price of eating there. We don't eat a ton, but it didn't seem like our family of four could eat a meal for less than $50. Thankfully, there are plenty of places to eat outside the resort, as it is near everything. But they would make more money by keeping people eating there and charging less (volume over price). Unfortunately for my wallet, my picky kids loved the food available.
