The hotel

Loews Sapphire Falls Resort transports guests to a paradise in the heart of the tropics. Blue waterfalls cascade over lush grounds, and in the distance, the calming sounds of steel drums call guests to take in the scenic water views, ease into ‘island time’ and let go. With a luxuriously landscaped 16,000 square foot, resort-style pool surrounded by cascading waterfalls as its centrepiece, Loews Sapphire Falls Resort captivates at every turn. Guests will be surrounded by a vivid and textured haven that is inspired by landmarks of the islands. Loews Sapphire Falls Resort is the perfect place to plan an unforgettable island escape. Guests staying at this hotel enjoy exclusive benefits at Universal Orlando Resort including Early Park Admission† to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ and Universal’s Volcano Bay one hour before the theme parks open (valid theme park admission required), complimentary transport to all three theme parks and Universal CityWalk, and much more.

Great trip to Orlando, hotel had everything we needed including early access to Universal parks. Boat or walk to parks with volcano Bay only a 7 min walk. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. Would definitely visit again.

Excellent location for Universal theme parks. Transportation was super convenient. On line reservation process was excellent. They should consider to upgrade the card system to wrist band (as the system used by Disney to room door key, express pass to attractions and pay at parks and hotel)

Attended a business conference. Brought the family, too. Water taxi every 15 minutes to City Walk for shopping, eating and relaxing entertainment. Hotel room card is a pass for the parking garage, too. No need to pay valet if you drive in. The garage is covered and very close to the entrance.
