Fantastic suite for familites

We were at Cabana Bay approximately two weeks ago for our second Universal trip in the past two years. We stayed in a standard room previously, but this time had 5 travelers this time so decided to go with a suite instead (the Tower Family Suite). The bedroom portion had a pair of queen sized beds, and the living area had a couch and chairs (the couch unfolded to make for the third bed). There was also a small kitchenette with a sink, microwave, and small refrigerator. We found a bit of added benefit with these amenities as we simply brought our own breakfast and lunch items and ate both in the room. It's only about a 5 minute bus trip from the resort to the park, so getting back for lunch wasn't a problem.As was the case last time, staying on-site made the trip much more enjoyable. It was nice to have a quick bus ride to and from the park and the early admission (one hour ahead of non-resort people) really made it easier to get through some of the major rides quickly. The ambiance of the resort is really cool, and offers several things to do when not at the park. There are two separate pools, a lazy river wrapping around one of them, as well as bowling and an arcade.As for food, it's honestly one of the weaker aspects of the resort but is not bad by any means. We found ourselves eating dinner in the park most days, but when we did want something from the hotel restaurant it was quick and moderately priced. I wouldn't say the taste stood out, but there were at least a variety of dishes and most were pretty good.

Family Vacation

Cabana Bay is perfect for families with young children. We have 3 boys aged 20, 22 and 23. We really should have spent the extra money and stayed at one of the other resorts like the Hard Rock. Another downfall was that you have to take a shuttle to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, but Volcano Bay is within walking distance.

Best hotel yet

Worth the money , so easy to get to and from universals theme parks and right on the entrance to volcano bay . Good choice of food especially the length of stay drinks cup, great pool which due to the quick and frequent shuttle buses we were able to make use of through the day to cool off from the parks

Cabana Bay best part of trip!

Being an annual pass holder to the parks we're very familiar with them, but we decided to spend the night at Cabana Bay and we were blown away! We never knew it had such wonderful accommodations. It felt more like being on a cruise ship than a hotel. The kids preferred to spend more time at the hotel than the parks! We'll definitely be back again, and we actually live in Orlando!

Cabana Bay Beach Resort

This hotel was great. The rooms were good size and very clean. We had a fantastic view over the swimming pool. There is a swimming pool and a lazy river, and you can watch a film every evening in whilst sitting in the swimming pool! There are plenty of places to eat and drink. There are washing facilities to clean your clothes before you return home. The hotel is right next to Volcano Bay and you are able to get early entry into the park.
