Universal Orlando has many hotels to choose from at several different price points, and The Loews Royal Pacific falls into the highest level in terms of price and service. While the Loews Portofino Bay and Loews Hard Rock (the other 2 Universal hotels in the top-tier) both offer exceptional service, the service during my recent stay at the Royal Pacific fell short. COVID protocols and extensive cleaning ensure guest safety and are highly appreciated, but staff do not seem to want to "go the extra mile" for guests. (Example: During check-in, I was told my room was cleaned and ready but was awaiting a final check by the housekeeping supervisor before being released to me. Five hours later, I still hadn't received word the room was ready yet, and when I finally did, I was required to go back to the front desk and wait in the check-in line all over again just to be told my room number. Then, even though there were 4 registered guests in the room (which had a king bed plus a sofabed), there were no pillows or linens for the sofabed, and I had to call to request these. When I requested clean towels on the 2nd day of my stay, I had to go to the pool to get some because the request I made at 8:00 am hadn't yet been filled by 4:00 pm.) The result is the equivalent of staying at the Sapphire Falls (the next-tier hotel directly across from the Royal Pacific, and with similar theming) with the advantage of receiving Express Passes.

Have stayed at this hotel many times. It's like our second home. Always extremely satisfied when I stay here. Would and have recommended this hotel to others. Easy access to everything. Staff is always wonderful and accommodating. I especially love the bed and pillows. I have such a wonderful sleep when I stay here. Donna

We booked a trip to Universal instead of Disney for my 40th bday because I wanted to try a UO resort. We originally booked the Aventura, which I have wanted to stay at since it was built.

We booked a trip to Universal instead of Disney for my 40th bday because I wanted to try a UO resort. We originally booked the Aventura, which I have wanted to stay at since it was built. A week before our arrival date we get notice that the Aventura is closing the day before we arrive (thank you COVID). We were moved to Cabana Bay, unfortunately that didn’t appeal to us do we upgraded to the Royal Pacific. Now I wish we hadn’t spent the extra money. The first room we were given smelled musty and moldy. We asked to be moved - the front desk was very accommodating and moved us. The second room was dirty- there were crusty glass rings on the side table, and hair and something that looked like tar or feces on the shower wall. By this time it was late in the evening and we were tired so did not ask for another room. Not something you want to see, even when there’s not a pandemic... especially when there is. During the week room service would come when we requested but the room still never felt clean. Overall the value we received for the cost was not worth it and we will not be staying here again.

Our fave hotel at USF (tho we did love vibe at Portofino too), a pleasure to check in w/pleasant staff. We chose Tower 1 cuz closest to garden path for walking (Tower 3 is closest to water ferry). Also it's very convenient for our 1st try w/using a scooter, right out front door. Room w/beautiful view of front garden ponds, frogs & IOA lights.… Read more
Our fave hotel at USF (tho we did love vibe at Portofino too), a pleasure to check in w/pleasant staff. We chose Tower 1 cuz closest to garden path for walking (Tower 3 is closest to water ferry). Also it's very convenient for our 1st try w/using a scooter, right out front door. Room w/beautiful view of front garden ponds, frogs & IOA lights. Again I say that Express Pass is soooo handy for front of line, even if crowds less cuz of Covid. We got the FL resident room rate promo w/park pass "buy a day, rest of yr free till 12/24". We'll be back! :D Dining always a pleasure at Islands w/Mustapha (got Employee of the Year I heard, yay!) for delish food & comfy booths. The mgr Sidney greets you at the door & is always available to help. Jake's has great vibe & view, & Tuk Tuk is the new market right by front desk. We ate there after check in, very handy. The very helpful Housekeeping director Jake & his asst mgr Cory were there, I asked to say hello again & thank them for past help. Jake explained daily h'keeping is on Covid hold, but it's no biggie as the room is loaded & u only hafta ask for any refill needs. No problema, relish the beauty! :D Read less
