Awesome vacation location
This place is a kids paradise! Multiple places to eat, amazing pool facilties, a universal store and counter & an avis desk, and all staffed with fantastic, friendly staff. We had an absolute ball staying at the resort. We enjoyed the walking path over to universal studios (although there’s also a shuttle bus we never used it) and the secret path into volcano bay. If you’re going to universals then this hotel is the perfect place. The kids even chose to hang at the hotel over going to the universal parks at times!

Very happy
I visited Walt Disney World and Universal Studios last year with my sister. We returned this year and decided to book a hotel at Universal Studios for that portion of our trip (last year we stayed in the Disney World area and got a taxi up to Universal). I'm very happy we did as Cabana Bay is great. The hotel is huge, with several separate buildings, large pool and activities areas, a Starbucks and bowling alley on site, and a great cafeteria/convenience store (with hot food, salad bar, frozen yogurt bar, pre-prepared sandwiches and salads, desserts, chips, etc...). We booked a Volcano Bay view room and, wow, what a view! You're so close, you're almost inside the park. We loved coming back to the room at night to see the park lit up. There is a downside though - whilst the room has block out curtains, the park remains completely lit all night so the room stays light (kind of dawn bright). This didn't affect our sleep, as we were usually quite tired after a day in the parks, but it's a warning to lighter sleepers. Also, you get to enter Volcano Bay an hour early (this applies to Hogsmead at Islands of Adventure too), and through a special entrance accessible from the hotel. There's a free shuttle bus that runs every 10-15 minutes to and from CityWalk, and you then walk to Studios or IOA. Otherwise, it's a lovely 15 minute walk to the parks. The entrance is very close to IOA, so you miss the crowds (and the walk) through CityWalk. As the weather was mild, we usually walked.

Fantastic family hotel
Fantastic hotel! We stayed in a family suite which was great! The seperate toilet was great. The hotel was very well kept and was spotless. The location was great and the bonus of early entry to universal and walking access to volcano bay was a plus! I will definitely stay here again

family getaway
Great family hotel. Very clean and I felt safe. Food was really good. Room was a little small to my liking but it was clean with a beautiful view. (Paid more for the view) staff were pleasant and helpful. Both pool bars should have had a second person serving as well. Bar was large enough to keep social distancing. Line was too long for the heat. Many fire pits outside to do s’mores with kids so it avoided having to be with so many other families at the same time. We will be back

Good 6.0
just okay
I will start by saying if I had booked straight through the hotel then my review would probably be better. For the price I paid I was very disappointed. One of the 2 pools are closed during the week and we didn’t know. The mattress was super uncomfortable and no one came to even grab the trash or drop off clean towels. We were there 4 days. They hotel overall was nice, clean and super convenient to Volcano Bay. Pool food was really good!
