LOVED all of it!

Our family of 5 had such a fun time here! Everything was perfect! Price, location, pools, cleanliness, entertainment, food, staff... all perfect. And somehow every where at the hotel smelled wonderful! I miss that smell :) Thanks for the precious family memories Cabana Bay and Universal Studios, we will be back!

3 nights at Cabana Bay

It was great to stay in Cabana Bay because it was the cheapest among the resort hotels and has a pool to chill after long day at the park.However, I feel that they need to focus on cleanliness more in hidden area of the room.Also, the food they offer (not drink) is not worth the price they suggest.However, I really enjoyed the stay at Cabana Bay!

LOVE this resort!

This was a great (relatively) inexpensive option for an onsite Universal hotel. The theme of the hotel was great - from the rooms, to the pools, lobby, workout room, etc. We had a room in the Americana tower that faced the road. There was construction across the street, but at the times we were in our room we didn't notice any additional noise from it. As some other reviews mentioned, the hotel is big so there is a bit of a walk to get to lobby, exercise room, pools, etc. but we didn't mind at all. When you come to a place like Universal you expect to walk around all day anyway! There is actually a pool at both ends of the hotel so never a far walk to it. One side has pool and lazy river. The other has pool and waterslide. They rent tubes to use in the lazy river, but we brought our own from home and they were kind enough to blow them up for us at the stand. The shuttle service from the hotel to the parks is amazing - we NEVER had to wait for a shuttle the entire time we were there. There was always one waiting at the stop - usually with one behind it for when the first one got full. One day we walked across the street to their other hotel and took the little ferry boat to the park, which was also fun for a change. The extra hour at Wizarding World of Harry Potter was also nice. We liked the "food court" type options in the dining area at the hotel. It was nice to have that option some nights for a faster dinner after all day at the parks when not everyone wanted the same type food. From what I recall they had a sandwich station, a pizza bar, a meat and sides, a salad bar, yogurt bar, and then some premade cooler items like sandwiches, salads, fruit, etc. I believe the bowling alley had more of a sit down restuarant that served burgers/shakes but we never made it to the bowling alley. We did peek in though and it looked fun. My son loved the arcade - it was decent sized for a hotel with lots of games if you didn't get enough entertainment at Universal! We also made use of the huge workout room. Lots of equipment and never crowded. We all had a great time at Cabana Bay and are already trying to figure out a time to return!

So much fun!! Smells so good!!!!

Amazing Hotel! Wonderful staff! Clean clean clean!!! It's smells amazing all the time. Pool area is fabulous day and night. Bus service to the parks was fast and easy. One of my favorite features is the Starbucks right in the hotel!

Accommodating for young infants

I was really nervous booking a vacation with a 7 month old. I called ahead asking for freezer accommodations and was a little weary when they told me I had to bring my frozen milk to the front desk for my baby because they only had refrigeration in the rooms. I felt like it would be a hassle for me and for the front desk but I was pleasantly surprised. I never had to wait very long and was always met with a smile. One time I had a young attendant named Drew and he met me with a smile and quickly ran to the back, making a comment about my hungry baby. He was very sweet, and seemed to love his job which always adds to any service experience. He's a keeper! The management and staff have always been great when we have stayed other times but I was really impressed this trip! Also- the family suite is excellent for when you have a newborn since you can set up the pack n play in the front room/kitchenette and pull a divider across. Highly recommend this resort. Thanks cabana bay!
