Loews Sapphire Falls Resort at Universal Orlando

Universal Orlando Resort, Orlando

The hotel

Loews Sapphire Falls Universal Orlando 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 (select attractions, valid theme park admission required), and complimentary transport. It's a great way to experience Universal Orlando Resort.

Sapphire Falls is a beautiful resort. I’ll start off with the room, lobby, pool was exactly as pictured online. From the moment we arrived until the time we left the staff was super friendly, attentive and helpful. Angelo at the front desk definitely brings the meaning to hospitality as I believe first impressions are everything. I was ecstatic that he was able to get an early check in at 2pm. Shortly after we settled into the room we headed down to the pool area where our awesome bar tender Kristen made us a few margaritas. Later in the evening we were headed out to HHN and could not find how to get to the water taxi. I stoped in the lobby coffee shop and Brandon offered me direction in addition to suggestions of which houses I don’t want to miss. Overall an excellent experience, fantastic room with comfy bed that was overlooking the lagoon. I only wish I had more than a one night stay. We were there to do HHN and Islands of Adventure the next day before heading out. Read less

Bathroom needs renovation. More space for wheelchair users especially the shower. It is to narrow and have trouble maneuvering wheelchair in limited bathroom and shower space. And accessible room should only have one bed so you don't have to move around and between beds.

Terrific location for access to Universal Studios and Citywalk. Facility is clean, very child friendly including a children's resort style pool with slide. This pool is better for the kids than the adults. The beds and pillows will make you want to go to bed early and were wonderful. A good bed can make or break a hotel for me. I give these… Read more

Hope they stay that way...LOL The buffet restaurant was fabulous and the food very well prepared! Boat transportation to the parks was fun and hardly a wait. Can't wait to go back. Read less

Overall, it was a great trip to Universal Studios. The rides were great, especially the coasters. The park theme facades, architecture and decorations were truly amazing and immersive.

My two biggest complaints--Express Pass was very expensive (~$100 extra/person) and we were unable to use to for several of the coaster rides--Very disappointed. I would probably NOT recommend getting one. The food was fine, but not great. That other Mouse park has significantly better food at their restaurants and at the vendors. Read less

Our first trip here was excellent! We loved the pool and the ease to get to the theme parks and early admission was a big plus! Everyone who worked at our resort hotel was polite, friendly and helpful! The room was spotless! A big advantage was they are dog friendly and we look for places that allow our dogs! Their dog walk area was very nice… Read more
