    Great clean property located right across from Volcano Bay. The hotel is super cute, the pools and entertainment around the pools are great. Starbucks on site is amazing. Be ready to pay for a float for the property lazy river, fountain drink refills, and pricey park like food.

    Just returned yesterday from Cabana Bay. Loved this themed resort. The Starbucks in the lobby, dining/food court in the lobby were great!.. The photo-op room on the 2nd floor for Stranger Things was awesome! (We were there for Halloween Horror Nights)-- The bowling alley was great at the resort, but go there early or call to reserve your bowling time. We went at 8pm and were told the next available bowling time was 10pm. Recommend to reserve when you want to bowl, you can order food/drinks from the bar area in the bowling alley and the servers bring food/drinks to you while you bowl if you would like; The Buses to CityWalk/and parks were always at the ready; We never waited over 5 minutes for a bus. On the morning we left, we had some Voo-Doo Doughnuts that we actually stored at the luggage area in the lobby, so we could visit the parks one more time, then returned to get our doughnuts before heading home (This was nice to be able to leave our car at the hotel while we went to the parks on our last day).. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Staying close to the lobby area, so you will be near the buses and starbucks/lobby area. This is HUGE resort with lots of walking involved, and after you walk all day at the parks, you really do not want to walk another 1-2 miles when you get back to the hotel. The pools and lazy river look awesome, although we didn't have time to use them on this trip. Would highly recommend this resort. We loved our stay!

    Hotel was great as always despite a grumpy older gentlemen by the ticket kiosk inside who tends to be that way always. We love the theming of the hotel and the whole vibe it always gives us. And the pizza that's available until 3am for late HHN guest like ourselves is always a highlight. We enjoyed the Stranger Things photo op, but there was very very little advertising for it.

    The cabana bay was perfectly kocated for universal as you would expect with regular shuttles easy to find. Also it was easy walking distance of volcano island. The room was nice but, along with alot of the facilities it felt a little tired. We were only there for four nights and any longer would have been too long.
