Excellent Location and Staff

Wanted to visit the new Harry Potter exhibit at Universal Studios. Stayed at on site hotel for the convenience to Universal Studios and Island of Adventure, early park admission and express pass to top attractions. While room is relatively small and not new for a "four/five star" resort, the courteous staff (they actually seemed happy to have your business) and beautiful hotel setting made it worth the money. Also, great experience at Tchoup-Chop restaurant, excellent food and service. We stayed at the Universal Portofino two years ago. While the rooms seem to be newer, the atmosphere was not as welcoming.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Even though we went during the "low season" (October), early park admission and express pass are really worth it. Also, "Single Rider" line seems to be the best kept secret. For the new Harry Potter ride, while others waited for over an hour in the regular line, we went on the single rider line with hardly any wait at all. Your party will only be separated during the three - four minute ride. Will not work for family with little kids who cannot ride by themselves as you will be separated into different cars/sides.

Royal Pacific at Universal was Excellent

The hotel was great. I often stay at Portofino, but it was too costly at this time of the year. But I like the Fast Pass option that comes with On property hotels, so I decided to try Royal Pacific. Not only did I like the lagoon in the middle, they also had a number of restaurants inside the hotel, which was really nice. Unlike Portofino, the few restaurants are outside in the courtyard, so to dine in the restaurant in the hotel with those options was very nice. I will stay their again.

Great if you want to visit the newest Harry Potter ride

Staff was wonderful and very accommodating. We had a few special requests which they quickly and politely handled. We stayed in the Jurassic Park suite which our son loved. The room was a little dated and didn't have a refrigerator. Given the price paid, that was surprising. Otherwise, great place to stay especially since you get into the Harry Potter Gringots ride an hour before those not staying at one of the on-site hotels.

Great experience

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Royal Pacific. It was easily within walking distance to the Universal Parks and Emeril's Tchoup Chop restaurant was fantastic. Though pricey receiving the Express pass made up for it and made our Universal experience that much more enjoyable. We did have one glitch (our room was not ready at check in) however they fixed the problem within 1/2 hour by upgrading us to a better room.

Must stay for Universal vacation

We had a great, albeit brief stay at this hotel. Hotel was very upscale but felt kid and family friendly. Pool area was very nice with huge pool, 2 hot tubs, splash area, and movies poolside at night. Walk to the park was about 10 minutes and faster than boat. The free express passes probably saved us a few hours of waiting over our two days in the parks. Would definitely stay here again if going to Universal. Only two minor gripes: The pillows were very lumpy and it cost $20 a day to park there. For $250 a night, parking should be included. Other than that, great stay.

great hotel close to parks

We loved our stay at Royal Pacific! The staff was extremely friendly, prompt and helpful. A short walk or boat taxi to the Universal parks, great location. Our daughters loved the pool, no waterslide though. Would definitely stay again!

Great location, average hotel

You will stay here if you are going to the Universal parks, want to be close and not waste any time once you wake up, want to get the free Express passes and want to stay in a decent hotel. This is what you are paying for. So from this perspective, great value. But beyond that, this is a below average hotel. The room was dated (especially the bathroom), cramped, no balcony and not especially clean. All ice makers were broken at the time of my visit and remained broken for the duration of my stay. The hotel's convenience store sells drinks at the same price as the park...really? I have stayed at many hotels, ranging from 1 to 5 stars, in the US and overseas. Based on the room and amenities, this is a 2.5 star at best. But based on the purpose of staying there, it is the best value out of all the Universal hotels.

Great Stay

If visiting Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure there is no better location. This hotel is an even easier walk to parks than Hard Rock. It is pricey, but the express pass and early entry makes it worth while if visiting during a busy time!

Horror Nights Vacation

The hotel was nice. Had a lush tropical feel to it. Nice size rooms and a decent shower. The pillows sucked but other than that it was pretty much what you would expect from a nice hotel. The location is great for the Studios which are a convenient boat ride away that runs very often. We never waited long for the boat. Wi-fi was complimentary but slow. They had water in the room for $7.00 a bottle but did have a Keurig for coffee. So all depends on what is important to you. I was happy with my stay. I have no comments on the staff because I barely interacted with any other than checking in.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Universal opens earlier than an hour early for hotel guest. If you are going to Halloween horror nights you can stay in the park and get to the haunted houses earlier than the public and avoid the metal detectors at the main gate. This is a big plus because it get's packed. Thursday was worse than Friday for lines due to the cheaper Express Pass. They let the entire express line go before anyone buying an average ticket so if you want to get it all in I would advise either a Frequent Fear ticket or Fast Pass. (you get one for the regular park staying onsite but not for HHN.
