Charged cancellation fee when stuck outside mainland due to Hurricane

Michaelgkerrigan (Hamilton, United Kingdom) on Nov 23, 2022

Recently had to cancel reservation when stuck in Puerto Rico due to Hurricane Nicole causing closure of Orlando airports. Despite being advised by team member on chat that I could e-mail this Cabana Bay have charged a cancellation fee as I didn’t call. After 2 weeks of back and forth it seems I am stuck with this fee. This despite one team member telling me on a call I would have a full refund (this was then changed by e-mail). During all the communication I had I was told I didn’t need to call, then I did, I was told I would receive a full refund, then I wasn’t. Different information each time so points to a lack of clear policy or poor staff training. Either way unprofessional and frustrating. As an aside I was delayed getting to a Disney hotel in 2017 due to Hurricane Irma and they cancelled my reservation before I arrived. They bought my dinner in the hotel restaurant while the booking was being rearranged and the refund was already in my bank account. That’s customer service. I would advise anyone travelling during hurricane season to avoid Universal as you may get stiffed. Personally I will accept the fee charged as the price of learning that Universal isn’t for me and I wont be back.

Don't do it!

689melanier (Humble, Texas) on Nov 23, 2022

This hotel was part of our Costco vacation package. It had a cute theme, but that's all it had going for it. There were 3 adults on this trip and as soon as we arrived we found that we needed extra pillows and that the pull out bed was very hard. It used to have a 4 inch memory foam,but over time has become about 2 inches. We called to request extra pillows and were told there were none. After speaking to a manager, pillows mysteriously appeared. Next we tried the "diner ." This is a food court similar to one found in hospitals. The burgers tasted like those you would buy at a zoo or other cheap frozen burger place. Everything was arranged to be inconvenient from the food lines to the condiments to the tray return. The following night I spilled water and had to remove the bedding from the pull out. There were pee stains on the mattress. I asked for new bedding and was told no blankets were available. Again I had to insist that I would need a blanket and a mattress pad. The tub had rust stains and the sinks were cracked. Universal and Lowes resorts, you need to do better.
