A Comfy Time

Kapolei, Hawaii

This is Universals high end resort. It is very nice and classy. Rooms are bigger than a typical room (450 sq ft) and the bed is so comfy. We came for the parks and the express passes. The boat to Citywalk was enjoyable and just long enough for a short rest. The hotel was quiet during the day and night. We couldn't hear anything from the parks.

Enjoyable for Harry Potter Fan!

Red Hook, New York

Stayed here for 3 nights to do Harry Potter World and then go off to Disney Animal Kingdom and quick visit to west coast to visit family. Hotel was very nice, clean, excellent location to Universal. They offered a water taxi but walking 10 minutes on a nice path was more enjoyable. There were also bike taxis if you wanted also. Our package included breakfast but without package the breakfast buffet would be $25.00 pp! The main pool was very nice especially for kids- slide, gentle access, plenty of chairs, noodles. There were two other pools as well. Drinks were very expensive with a gratuity of 20 % added. They did have some activities at pool that we did not use due to weather and pool closure. Biggest complaint I heard from others is after a thunderstorm the pool was closed much longer than the park rides. They did have Bocce Ball court but that was shut down as well as soon as storm came as in pool enclosure. Mama Belle restaurant was excellent, expensive but no different than eating in a major city, etc. Waiters were attentive- loved the roaming musicians- nice classy touch. 2 days for us were enough at parks as we don't do roller coasters or water parks so enjoyed a day walking around grounds, city walk, etc
