tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
Casual fun

Over the last several years we have stayed at almost all the hotels at Universal. Cabana Bay is the most casual. It is by far the most child friendly but my wife and I really enjoy the adult amenities. It is the only resort at Universal with a "lazy river" and it is fun for kids of all ages. The work out facilities are also the best on property. Over all considering both price and amenities, this may be the best value at Universal.

Loved the retro theme

I stayed here with my 2 adult daughters and we had a great time. Upon check-in we were immediately upgraded to a suite at no charge as the hotel was at low occupancy (week after Thanksgiving). I even got to pick out the floor (4th), as I like to have a view. The 2 beds and sofa bed allowed us each to have our own. The refrigerator and microwave in the room came in very handy. Chris (check-in counter) and all the other staff members were very friendly and helpful. The food in the Bayliner diner was very good and reasonably priced. The theme brought back memories of traveling as a child with my parents. We would definitely stay here again!

Cabana Bay Beach Resort - Great Fun and Food

Cabana Bay Beach Resort is a great value for an economy level themed hotel. The experience is much better than other economy level themed hotels by the company with the big ears. The onsite pools are so much better, including a lazy river and slide which you do not find at other economy level themed hotels. The food court is excellent, amazing food for cafeteria style service. So many selections that everyone is happy. Great value with the refillable resort cup. Less than a 10 minute bus ride to the Universal parks which is amazing, easy to run back to your hotel for a break and come back to the parks without wasting a lot of time. I love this resort and the theme is awesome!

Very nice room and easy access to parks

The room was very nice and comfortable. It seems brand new, clean and has a good bathroom. All the facilities at the hotel make it easy to have a meal and also some fun. Starbucks inside is excellent, the restaurants have good options and the people from the hotel are very friendly.

Not for Anybody but Families w/Children

I'll be brief. My room had a stained bedcover and looked out over a construction site. The tub did not drain and there was no TV guide~ when I called about it they simply said it must be there~ no effort was made to come and bring a new one. I did have numerous pizza delivery flyers crammed under my door and the sounds of ongoing construction all day, beginning in the early morning.Overall, this hotel might be ok if I had a bevy of small kids who wanted to hang out at the pool and if I wanted to feed them pizza and French Fries at a cafeteria everyday. It is NOT for anyone over 30 without kids and/or for anyone who wants a decent meal at the end of the day. And the hotel promotes itself as an on-site property, but you have to get on a bus to get to the park. The walking options are not well-marked and to get to the ferry you have to walk across a freeway entrance road without lighting or a cross walk. The hotel is NOT designed for any demographic other than the young family crowd. Be forewarned.
