Fantastic bartender and drinks at the BarSol by pool. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful!!!! Room was very clean and elevators were quick. Can not beat this hotel for the location to visit Volcano Bay! Out the back side of the pool and you are there. We were tired after the water park and decided to try the Urban Pantry for dinner at hotel...delicious wok bowls! Wonderful experience all the way around! Read less

This property is great for the price. Most rooms have a stunning view ( make sure to get one on a higher floor that faces the parks). Our room seemed nice and clean, modern minimalist style. Even had a mini fridge. Only thing we did not like about the room was the closest light switch was in the hall for the vanity area. iPad controls most room fuctons. Lots of outlets and USB inputs for gadgets. Rooms are small. Like ones you would find in NYC or a large European city. Some Do's and Dont's Do: Visit the pool area, even with splashing kids its fun. The bartender can even fix you a nice drink. Visit the Sky Bar the views are amazing. They even serve burgers. Park your car in the parking garage make sure you keep your room key even after checkout you will need it to exit. Take the shuttle to the parks you may be able to enter early. Do visit the hotel Universal souvenir shop. Make friends with one of the bartenders (this will be important later). Dont's: don't take the iPad out of the room. Try not to go on a weekend. The hotel, like the park, can be very busy. Sometimes there were up to 15 minute waits for the elevator. Dont buy the refillable cup from the hotel and expect to use it in the parks. If you buy a refillable cup from the parks you "may" be able to "purchase" stickers (if you have made friends with a bartender) that allow you to use them at the hotel. The wife and I had a great time but the property seemed understaffed. We noticed most areas seemed unkept. Hard to get service in some areas. Starbucks was only open morning to early afternoon. One will have to go next door for a full service full menu resturant (hotel has a cafe) Parking was 14 per day. Overall a postative visit at a great price! Read less

5 days at Universal. We knew at the end of July it would be hot and there would be people but Jesus was it hot and Jesus were there people. Agree with others who have said there were lines just to get a drink. 25 minutes in line in 95 degrees for a $5 water. Need reservations for meals, only three sit down restaurants I found.

5 days at Universal. We knew at the end of July it would be hot and there would be people but Jesus was it hot and Jesus were there people. Agree with others who have said there were lines just to get a drink. 25 minutes in line in 95 degrees for a $5 water. Need reservations for meals, only three sit down restaurants I found. Getting relief from the heat was impossible. Shade is hard to find. Wizarding world of Harry Potter was like a corral of cattle herded in together. But the rides are great lol. If you love the heat and don't mind all the people you'll have a great time. We will never do it again during summer months and honestly probably never again period. Disney World was better, there's just something about Disney that Universal lacked. It felt like any other theme park we've been to. Read less

The service was great, the staff was extremely friendly, and our room had an amazing view and was very clean. We had a kids suite and another room. It was a good layout. The shuttle buses were quick and the walking to volcano bay was easyz

Aventura is a great place to stay. The pool is relaxing, the drinks and food are good. The view from rooftop is spectacular. The bed is firm so be aware but room is clean and cozy. The staff is nice and we had a blast at the hotel and Universal 4 days with easy shuttle service. I recommend for family and friends stay.
