Loews Sapphire Falls Resort

Universal Orlando Resort, Orlando

The hotel

Loews Sapphire Falls will take you 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 you to take in the scenic water views. Ease into ‘island time’ and let go. Kids will love the pool, complete with water slide, games, and somewhere to grab some food without stepping too far from the lounger. And when it’s time to go and explore the parks, you’ll enjoy exclusive benefits like early park admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ and Universal’s Volcano Bay (valid theme park admission required), and complimentary transport. There’s no better way to experiences Universal Orlando Resort.

We all loved this hotel. It is extremely large, modern and yet tropical, and very clean. We stayed here a week and loved every second of our stay. While you don't get Universal Express pass included with this hotel, it still remains our favorite of the on-site hotels after staying at all except Portofino Bay and the new Surfside/Dockside Inn

A perfect location to access the Universal parks, Citywalk, etc. I was exhibiting at a show at the OC Conv Ctr but it was nice to escape that area each night. Friendly staff and great customer service.

Great stay with family, we had five adults so we opted for the two bedroom suite. The room was very comfortable and clean, my mom loves the soap and shampoos. This is a beautiful resort and a short boat ride to universal, island of adventure. This resort is on the pricy side but you get what you pay for. The pool is fantastic! Although it was too cool for us to enjoy it most of the days the activities group provides little to of free stuff to do at the pool. A huge plus for me was the chair covers they have for the pool lounge chairs, the actually hook over the top and go the whole length of chair- thank you!!! The pool drinks were Very weak even for me, at $15 each and 18% automatic gratuity I expected a little alcohol. Read less

This is our fourth stay at this hotel and the second in the Sapphire Suite. We chose this for our most recent trip because we wanted the ability to host family who were also staying at the resort, but in different hotels. The Sapphire Suite offers a couch with chaise, larger television, large dining room table and ample space for visitors. However, the layout of the room is not ideal for efficient use of space. We stayed with our three children, two of whom slept on the pull out couch and one of which slept on the ($40/night) rollaway bed. There is a half bath in the entry way that they can use for going to the bathroom, washing hands, and brushing teeth, but they cannot shower in there. The adjoining king room has a very large bathroom with two showers. Well, that's pretty impractical for getting everyone showered because they're both in the same bathroom. There's also never enough room to hang towels (one towel bar which will hold two towels) and there isn't really anywhere to hang wet suits. The master bathroom is dark and it's impossible to see well enough to put on makeup. The hall bath, however, has a lighted mirror that works great. There are only two small trash cans in the entire suite and the A/C makes a strange venting sound round the clock. There was difficulty during our entire stay with the automated gate at the parking lot, requiring a staff person round the clock. Of course, it's very clean, aesthetically pleasing, with a convenient location and a friendly staff. We typically stay in the Aventura Hotel in either the large family suite or two adjoining rooms and will definitely stay there in the future. It's more affordable, just as clean, with newer amenitites - and a Starbucks. Read less

Second vacation at this hotel and it hasn't lost its appeal. Rooms and public areas still lovely and clean, pool great for all ages plenty of sunbeams and a slide for little guests. Great boat service to city walk and parks or a lovely walk whatever takes your fancy Staff very pleasant and helpful
