Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I paid extra money for the pool view suite room. Not worth it. I had to lean way over in the corner and look off in the distance to see the pool. Get a cheap room. Suites not worth extra money. The best thing about this hotel is early entrance to the park. Well worth it.

Hotel was super- weather was not! Oh well! Loved the retro vibe of the room- which was obviously a newer part of the hotel. It was clean and the view of the volcano was great.

really nice stay with our family. pull out bed not great as far for comfort, but room was fine, resort fine, very nice staff.

This is my second stay here and I will not been returning despite having a positive experience the first time. The part of the hotel we stayed at had no insulation between the walls and our neighbors kept us up most of the night both nights we were there. They said they had no rooms to move us to and did not compensate us for our trouble. They did send security up a couple times and this relieved the problem but for only about 2 hours. We were too tired to enjoy the parks the next day.

Amazing! Clean! Affordable food Loved it! Will be back soon

Not to sure why I received a room with the view of a building. Was worse view ever. I was so disappointed! Called front desk and was told due to my booking this was the room type I would get. Trued to get more info and clerk said they had no other rooms. Was it because I purchased on Orbitz?

average hotel. You get there, check in, go to your room and then plan your days. I would like for this hotel to be a little more engaging. Afford the customers with more variety within the hotel. Overall, ok stay

Bed is very uncomfortable Lot of people It is expensive

Very helpful staff, covinient getting to and from parks, kids loved the pool

Excellent hotel , near to universal island and volcano . The food was really good and the pool area its good

We had an amazing time. Hotel centrally located in the heart of all the activities we wanted. ( universal studios, International drive and Wald Disney World. Needed more variety in the cafeteria. Friendly and knowledgeable staff . Early check out but we had the use of the facilities our bags were safely stored away until we were ready to leave Orlando.

We were unable to get seated for food in the galaxy bowling fora table for 7 due to senior week and school days. The hotel was not prepared for food service when hotel is full. And staff was not helpful finding other possible alternatives will not return again!

Nice hotel, decent amenities, needs to have more dining options as it seems all place have the same food. Also needs a lobby bar that opens before 5.

Hotel front desk excellent customer service. Lazy river very cool we really enjoyed, both days we spent time there. Everything in hotel all relatively close which makes things real easy food, arcade, bowling, pools ect. One pool has a slide, which slide is just okay however pool has a slide so thumbs up there. Both pools had sand my son likes sand so very cool there. Parked in the garage which was close to our room Americana side. Loved that! Two huge reason for staying at Cabana Bay - You get into Universal one hour before the public made a big difference for us. That time we hot two rides and a store so very cool there! Cabana Bay for when we stayed for very competitively priced over the other two hotels at that Universal offers so that was a big thumbs up as well. Thank you!

Staff was amazing! Everything was clean. Did I mention the staff was amazing! If I went up to anyone with a question, they were helpful and cheerful! I would highly recommend this hotel!

The entire staff was extremely nice and helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

Our 2 boys (11 and 7 yrs) had a great time at the pool - loved the lazy river and slide. Both also enjoyed the arcade. Close to City Walk and the parks. Would stay here again.

Friendly staff. 2 big pools. Good food choices from on site restaurant. Transportation to and from universal city walk is convenient and easy.

easy access to Universal theme parks. Bus transport to City walk great. Rented electric scooter for older member of family.

we had a terrific vacation, would absolutely do again.
