    So far it's very impressive. Off season is relatively cheap, but they nickel and dime you for everything. The gym, Internet, priority ride access(used to be comp)and parking can add another 50 a day.

    Join us in Jake’s American Bar on 5/2 for more than 50 beers from our favorite breweries. Also specially prepared culinary creations (hello, chicken & waffles!) by our chefs & live entertainment!

    Pricey but beautiful hotel. Great pool and easy access to all Universal parks. Your stay includes an Unlimited Express Pass and Early Admittance (money!) to the parks.

    Great hotel, love the theme. Wish they had a free mini fridge and microwave in the rooms though. They do have a Keurig which is nice for coffee drinkers. Pool is beautiful. Will stay here again!

    Excellent Hotel, Excellent Food, Fun Pool, Great Theme Park Views! Can't wait to come back! Just don't like having to pay for parking even when I am a guest or wifi.

    Coming for a conference? There is a second entrance off the main road for the convention space. Look for the sign for Emeril's. It will save you a drive around the resort or a long walk from the lobby

    Short walk or boat ride to universal parks. Decent hotel. Parking $17 per day. Gym & Internet cost extra. Island dining room is not very good. Worth staying here to get the free express pass.

    Play volleyball in the pool after an early morning jaunt to Harry Potter world. If you're staying here, the park opens at 8 AM! Stay on the club level for "free" breakfast and snacks.

    The Bacon Steak at breakfast was AMAZING! Thick and VERY rich; you've been warned. =) And also, the chicken sausage pizza was surprisingly good considering it was gluten-free.

    If you lose your room key they won't charge extra for replacements. Complimentary coffee/tea/hot chocolate is pretty tasty. They'll give you as many cups to put in the machine as you like.

    It is about a 7 minute walk from the pool gate at Royal Pacific to the entrance to CityWalk (next to Margaritaville). If you want to be close to CityWalk or IOA, this is it!

    $15 to self park, $30 to Valet for a day, $22 a day if your STAYING at the hotel. Can be validated at the hotel restaurants to make it $6 but there is a $20 minimum Only saving you $4! What a rip off!
