    Everything was awesome! The hotel designed like an old Italian city which was beautiful! There’s even a like in the center of the complex which adds an extra italian touch. The room was space and clean. The staff were super professional and helpful. There are boat shuttles to and from Universal’s theme parks which were super convenient. You get an express pass for the theme parks as the hotel guest both for the check in and check out days (and everything in between) which was awesome!

    We live locally but we booked a room because we were attending a benefit gala that evening. We arrived just before the 4 pm "check in" time in our casual clothes, planning to check in, relax, and then change into our black tie clothing and go to the event no later than 6pm. The computer system was down, and we didn't get into our room until after 6. We had to rush to get to the event and missed most of the pre gala events. The next day the check in lines were just as long, even though the computers were working. We will uber next time if we attend a local event!!!

    Outdoor feel is superb. Location is spot on.

    Check in was poor. Didn’t get a call or text that my room was ready while I was in the parks. Ended up calling the back office where they apologized for not contacting me that my room was ready. Told me I would be getting a text with my room number. That never happened. Had to report to front desk again to get my room. When I arrived at room the front door sticks. Had to put my shoulder into it for it to open. Expected more of room. Won’t book at this resort again. Would do the Royal Pacific resort instead. Stayed at that one a few months again and it was a fantastic experience.
