Universal Orlando Resort, Orlando

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.

Man!! Everything was pretty much perfect throughout! Boat transportation to the park was great / 15 minute walk if you want to walk. The pool police are super strict. Whistles blowing like crazy, 4-5 year olds act like they are running they get the whistle. I get it though people are litigious.

My hubby and I decided to do a vacation closer to home and because we're Universal passholders thought it would be great to stay close to the parks. The hotel was an awesome choice. We requested early check-in and when we arrived got a room. However, the room was not ready yet (we walked in the on the cleaning service). The front desk staffer, Ricardo, was awesome in taking care of us. We got a great room after, with a pool view. The room was clean. The restaurants on site were very good too. Amatista is a great value and great food. The customer service throughout the property was amazing. We both felt at ease and appreciated. We are definitely going to stay here again. Read less

Good free transportation on boat - no waiting. Excellent hotel, but just good rooms. small rooms with only one sink, no robes, and not many plugs. But, clean and quiet. Clientele not good, but not great. I would stay again for the hotel and boat rides.

This was our forth time staying at Loews Saphire Falls at Universal Orlando and it wont be our last! We love this hotel. The staff all around are on top of their game. They make sure all your needs are met with a smile ! The hotel location is great with boat or bus transportation available. The restaurants at the hotel are amazing! They have delicious food. The pool is large and well staffed and the life guards are always being very observant! We were also happy to see them being eco-friendly using paper straws and no plastic trash bags in the cans in our room. We recommend this hotel and hope you have as great of a time there as we did!
