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 on-site 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.

Great place for family vacation, awesome location and the amenities are hard to meet. Staff was well trained, pool is great for kids and families. Rooms are well put together and the access to the shuttle to get to city walk was just a extra bonus. No vehicle needed. definitely go back!

We had a king suite which was very nice - the arrangement was a little odd (the desk was crammed into the bedroom and there was a lot of "free" space in the other room where the desk would have been more useable) but it was nice. The shower is HUGE & has heavenly water pressure with a nice bench so you can get a good soaking! This is a medium tier resort so doesn't offer the express pass to the theme parks but if that isn't your focus, it is more economical. Has water taxi service to parks so is very convenient. Would definitely stay here again! Read less
