Airbnb Bust

My family of five had not planned on visiting Universal Studios or staying at Cabana Bay Beach Resort. Our original plans of a beachfront rental came to a quick end when we arrived to find the air conditioning inoperable. After a quick change of plans we found a room at the Universal Cabana Bay Resort. Sabrina at the front desk was amazing!!!! We got a fantastic room that was more than comfortable for our family, even our youngest that never sits still. We took advantage of the great facilities, restaurants, pools, on site bowling and arcade (A life saver on rainy days). Our absolute best experience was when followed guest services recommendation for a semi private tour of Universal Orlando. It was absolutely worth the money! We had two great meals and got on way more attractions than we ever would have without the tour. Jimmy our tour guide was awesome. We made some great friends from our tour group and we spent the rest of the day together. A huge Thank You to everyone at Universal for making our 2020 family vacation amazing!!!!! We will definitely be back.

Very Kid Friendly

Chatham, Massachusetts

Came here with three generations of family. Check in was a little slow considering it was 8:30 at night. Rooms were clean and comfortable with very good beds! Really didn't enjoy eating all the hotel meals cafeteria style and you never had a quiet meal. The pools were good and area was clean.
