Approximately 2 weeks ago we visited this hotel and the first impression was good. Everything was fine until we got to the room, the smell was unpleasant but I decided not to say anything so as not to be "The complaining girl" but it didn't smell clean, the towels have an unpleasant smell too, they don't smell clean and they have holes (more than… Read more
Approximately 2 weeks ago we visited this hotel and the first impression was good. Everything was fine until we got to the room, the smell was unpleasant but I decided not to say anything so as not to be "The complaining girl" but it didn't smell clean, the towels have an unpleasant smell too, they don't smell clean and they have holes (more than one ) But anyway, I decided to go ahead with our vacation and enjoy it as much as I could. To my surprise, on the second day of our stay, I looked to my left where the bathroom glass is and I was shocked, there was dried blood that had dripped on the glass. I couldn't believe my eyes. I reported it and they sent a person to clean it, we were not in the room when they came to clean it but when I returned I went to check and indeed they had cleaned it but not completely, there was still blood on the glass, really?? Incredible and unpleasant. The blood on the door glass was totally unacceptable, that's is a potential bio-hazard, I'm still in shock, how is possible that a place that is visited for so many children can be so irresponsible with something like this. We ignored the bad smell, the torn, unwashed, and smelly towels among other things but this was completely unacceptable They offered us a credit for one night, which I thought was ridiculous, but in the end they only gave us back less than half of one night. We left the next morning. We enjoyed the Parks very much, nothing negative to say about it. The rooms need to be updated, better maintenance and hygiene. Read less

This was our second stay at the Royal Pacific and yes, lets get the price out of the way...it's expensive! BUT you are paying for something unique. Firstly, the resort feeling you get when you enter and the customer service which is great - quick, efficient check-in and all your questions answered. We arrived at 8am on the day of check-in and our room was ready so we could drop our bags off and go straight to the parks. We also checked out and used the luggage hold service which is easy and efficient. There is an AVIS desk in the reception area and we (pre) booked a car which was ready to drive out when we were ready. Second, the UNLIMITED FAST-PASSES! wow, these are the best thing. Hardly any waiting for all the rides, as many times as you like (only Hagrids bike isn't included). Thirdly, EARLY park entry to Islands of Adventure. Make the most of this hour and get on Hagrids bike. Fourth, the transport to the parks which is a lovely boat ride or a 10 minute stroll along the water. Either way you are transported right to the entrance of Universal Studios or a walk over the bridge to Islands of Adventure (Volcano Bay is only accessible by a short bus ride). No need to see the carparks! Last but not least, the staff. We had breakfast in the restaurant both mornings and were taken care of by MUSTAPHA. What a lovely bloke. I know that customer service in the US is pretty good and you might think "they treat everyone like that" but the kindness and sincerity that Mustapha showed was much appreciated. He made us all smile and if you're reading this Mustapha thank you for the shopping tips! We all spent way too much in that store!!! This hotel is great for anyone wanting an extra special stay at Universal Studios. The rooms are looking a little tired now but nothing to put us off recommending it. Read less

My family and I had a fantastic time. The service from all teams, front desk, housekeeping, restaurants, club lounge 10/10. If I could change something it would be the sofa bed, it was very hard, not comfortable to sleep in for the kids. Also, to somehow "air/ventilate" the room from the previous guest.

My family and I had a fantastic time. The service from all teams, front desk, housekeeping, restaurants, club lounge 10/10. If I could change something it would be the sofa bed, it was very hard, not comfortable to sleep in for the kids. Also, to somehow "air/ventilate" the room from the previous guest. The smell hit us when we entered the room and it was gone after a few hours. However, the room was very clean, and the bed in the main bedroom was great. Thank you for a wonderful vacation. Keep it up, please. We will be back!! Rooms: 5/5 | Service: 5/5 | Location: 5/5 Noteworthy details The club lounge is absolutely worth your money, specially for large families. Food, offerings, service, food quality, everything was wonderful. Great value!!! Read less
