The other resorts offered way more things to do. Would not reconned this place. The food was soso not a great value for portion size. The hot tub was always full and not big enough. Also don't know about anywhere else but they charged me to park my rental as if the cost of the room wasn't too high to begin with

This is a great hotel. Took my parents to Universal, mostly took Momma to see Harry Potter World. She couldn’t have done all the walking so the hotel recommended a scooter service that delivered straight to the door and bellhop kept it every night. The staff was amazing and the hotel was beautiful!!!

Sapphire Falls is an amazing hotel. This was our first trip to Florida, and we wanted a hotel close to Universal. This fit the bill. The service is outstanding, the water taxis are so convenient for getting to the parks and CityWalk, and the pool is awesome. We will definitely stay again! Loved it!
