    Clean relaxing. The staff is great! Only down sided was lack of microwave in the room. That only mattered a little. This place is very well managed and the staff appears to care about the guests. Please stay here. Great for families.

    There was 18 of us staying at this hotel and they looked after all of us, the upgraded my father in law for his 70th birthday - but unfortunatly we wernt that lucky :) , the hotel is in a great location for universal and Volcano bay and if you walk across the fly over to Sapphire Falls hotel you can get the boat straight into Universal. the rooms are ok (for the amount of time you spend in them, we paid for the upgrade with a kitchenette which was good for coffee and microwave and fridge, room was cleaned everyday if you wanted (little tip for the hotel - you might consider wet wash/vac the carpet - not they were dirty but you could see there was a lot of traffic on them) Pools were good with the life guards on alert all the time, food was ok in Bayliner but the same menus can get a little repetitive - but with so many restaurants in the areas and parks we didn't eat there much, Bowling ally was a nice touch as was the gym. Quick mention for one of the front of house staff - Justin - he helped us quiet a few times when we went to him with questions/ issues / travel arregnagements , I did leave two cases of beer for him when we left but unfortunately he was off that day, so i think your team mates got them :) We are already lookign at going again next year but will have to see if Cabana Bay falls within our budget. I can recommend room 1130 in Castaways - right beside the pool.

    Pros include: on site bowling & arcade,marsh-mellow roasting on the pool deck, and a time warp experience. The main con was opening the room door to be hit by a thick cloud of strong musty odor. I did not want to spend time in the room due to the unpleasant and overwhelming odor. I suspect it is due to a broken shower/bath ventilation or fan system.

    pictures online do make it look larger. it was comfortable and I did use the laundry facilities which was priced at a great deal and clean. coffee in the room not so great lol.. but starbucks was downstairs and the breakfast was good.. finally a restaurant in florida that can cook scrambled eggs and they taste great.

    I'd completely recommend staying here if you're headed to universal Orlando at a time when the park isn't busy. If you're traveling at a busy time,I'd recommend spending the extra money and getting a room at one of the hotels that offers express passes. We were at the park Thursday - Saturday and Thursday and Friday were fine. However, as expected, Saturday was crazy busy If everyday had been like Saturday, I would've spent the extra and bought express passes for my own sanity and would've been upset that I didn't stay at the other hotels that offered it as part of our stay.
