I do not know where to start, this resort has been one of the best resorts we ever stayed in. I was traveling with my son for the first time Lisa made our checkin so pleasant, we arrived at 9 am and she got us a room in no time (thank you Lisa😊) This amazing resort has shuttles every 15 min to all the parks which is definitely a plus. The resort itself is huge, the rooms were super clean the staff super nice and helpful at all times. The pool is huge with a sandbar, restaurant and Starbucks on sight making very easy for people traveling without a car. The location of this resort is perfect you have numerous of restaurants, Walgreens and Walmart just less 10 min away. I would also recommend the shuttle (starshuttle through universal) from the airport to the hotel it's great they are waiting for you as soon as you arrive. They have a sister resort right in front (dockside) which you have asses to all the amenities as well. My checkout with Alli was again very easy and pleasant accommodating us as much as she could since the shuttle puck up to the airport was at 3pm (thank you Alli🙏🏽) I will be recommending this resort to all my friends and family. This is probably the first review I ever left in my life so this tells you how great this resort is. To families looking for a resorts that meets its standards and above do not hesitate to stay in this resort. What an amazing stay thank you all and we will definitely be back !!!!! Oh and let's not forget the maintenance and cleaning workers always with a smile cleaning our room daily super nice and attentive. Read less

Rooms are clean tidy and if you stay in the 2 bedroom suites having the kitchen area is such a great extra benefit especially when making meals for children. I have to give a special mention to Alli on reception!! The friendly professional greeting we received when checking in was as we all agreed was the best way to start our stay. Surfside Alli is an absolute pleasure and a credit to your company! Read less

We have just returned from a weeks stay at this hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. The staff were helpful and polite. We had a pool view room on floor 5. We didn’t have the room cleaned and serviced whilst we were there as we like to tidy it ourselves when we are away. We just asked the maids to fresh towels daily. The food in the hotel was ok, no need to go out if you didn’t want too as lots of different options. Size portions were large and my daughter (aged 24) had children’s meals at times and she has an appetite at times! We bought the refillable cups when we arrived for the duration of our stay. Great selection of drinks from the Coca Cola machine plus coffee/ tea/ hot chocolate available. Ample of choice for other beverages in the cafeteria area as well as food to go choices too. Ample seating area to enjoy your food and beverages. Pool area provides towels. There’s a bar in the pool area too. Loads of sunbeds. Life guards always on duty. Other facilities include a gym, arcades games room. Starbucks in foyer area. Seating availability in the foyer of the hotel. There’s Avis car rental, ticket desk, left luggage facility in the hotel. There was also a Universal shop. Free transport shuttles to City walk from the hotel. Read less

The resort has excellent customer service . Staff are very friendly and the rooms are clean . I would go back without thinking twice about it. The hotel does not use strong smelling cleaning products which is good for persons who have allergies .
