Make the most of your Orlando getaway by booking the family for a fun-filled vacation at one of Universal Orlando Resort’s exciting hotels. Each resort has transportation to the Citywalk and the Universal parks and comes with perks for guests such as early admission to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The two newest and most affordable resorts to join Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, the Hard Rock Hotel and Loews Royal Pacific Resort are Loews Sapphire Falls Resort and Cabana Bay Beach Resort.
Within walking distance to the parks, Loews Sapphire Falls Resort looks and feels like an island paradise. The palm trees, foliage and carefully designed gardens will entice you to skip the parks and just stay at the resort.
Guests of Sapphire Falls can receive complimentary transportation to the Grand Cypress Golf Course, or take advantage of the Resort Kids Camps located on other Universal Orlando Resort grounds. Should guests choose to play in the parks during their stay, they can enjoy Universal Express Unlimited which allows them to skip the lines on many rides at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure.
Sapphire Falls offers standard rooms (shown above) and luxury suites that includes suites for kids with two twin beds, a rollaway and a king size bed. That is plenty of space for a family of five! Other suites include King Suites, Hospitality Suites, Sapphire Suites and the Presidential Suite.
Summer season rates start at $172 per night for a seven-night stay and value season rates start at $117 per night for a seven-night stay. To learn more or to make a reservation, call 1-888-273-1311 or visit www.universalorlando.com/
Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort features a fun retro-feel of beach resorts from the 50’s and 60’s. Complete with a ten lane bowling alley, lazy river and bold colours straight out of the mid-century, everyone in the family will enjoy the atmosphere and amenities. A large food court called Bayliner Diner has a variety of options including burgers, a salad bar, sandwiches, pizza, snacks and drinks. The resort features two pools and several fun beach activities in the sand.
The family suites at Cabana Bay are exactly what families of 5 or 6 need for a relaxing getaway. Following the same vintage theme, this family suite had ample living space with a kitchenette, living room and bedroom with two queen sized beds. The kitchenette comes complete with a microwave, coffee maker and refrigerator, making it easy to keep snacks and drinks fresh. The living area had plenty of space for a family to relax and the couch pulled out into a bed. A sliding partition provided some privacy between the sleeping area and the living area. The suite would sleep six and a washroom divided into three rooms allows more than one person to get ready at once.
Cabana Bay guests also get exclusive benefits only available to on-site hotel guests at Universal Orlando, including Early Park Admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter one hour before the theme park opens. Rates for the family suites begin at $174 per-night, and can run as low as $134 per-night depending on the length of stay. Rates for the standard guest rooms begin at $119 per night, and can run as low as $93 per-night depending on the length of stay.
