From the moment we walked in the door everyone was smiling and helpful. The front desk staff made a fuss over my son for his birthday, which made him feel special right away. We loved the tablet in the room that lets you control everything, and the view from our Skyline view room was amazing! The pool was a big hit with all of the kids, especially the splash pad for the younger ones. All of the lifeguards were helpful and would find pool toys and give them to the kids to help keep them entertained. Our favorite part of the hotel was the rooftop bar. Amazing views and good food/drinks. We loved that it was family friendly so that the kids could come up too. Each morning we walked the short walk to Sapphire Falls (directly next door) and caught the boat to the parks. We never had to wait long for a boat, and it was nice to go ahead and go through security. We can’t wait to come back and stay here! Read less

This is a very beautiful, modern hotel . It is perfect for adults and couples as there are not many young children as it isn’t ideal for young families. Customer service is second to none from every single member of staff . Highly recommend !

I stayed here overnight with my elderly father whose in a scooter and my almost 2 year old in a stroller. The staff was so accommodating, helpful and friendly! Bellhop Kristof is the BEST! I definitely needed extra hands and he was right there to unload and then reload, the next day, all our bags. What a beautiful hotel.. it’s high tech too! They have robots that sweep up , so the floors stay clean and even offer tables with outlets so you can enjoy your Starbucks and charge your electronics 😁 The views we had were phenomenal as well. We had one of the kids suits and OMG! Between the wrap around windows with views of Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, a fireworks show, and gorgeous sunsets/rises , iPads in all the rooms and a separate kids tv room.... Awesome is the only word I can think of to describe it! This hotel felt like home and we can’t wait to come back! Thank you all again for going above and beyond !! Read less

This place is amazing! It's super high tech and has everything you could possibly need right on property. Unfortunately we were only able to stay one night but I definitely would stay here again. Check in was very easy, the garage that's available for parking is connected to the building, just a short elevator ride to the main lobby. There are 6 (I think) elevators that go to the rooms. You have to use your room key to be able to get to the guest room floors. We stayed on level 7 which had pretty decent views, it overlooked Cabana Bay and part of the Volcano from the water park. The higher floors I'm sure had even better views. Each room has an iPad that you use for all the connected features in the room, to turn on the TV, change channels, streaming on the TV, working the lights, information about the hotel, etc. They even had HBO so I didn't miss my GoT while we were there. The shower was beautiful as well as the sink area. There are several places for food on property, a food court of sorts, and room service is available but we ordered from Grubhub instead because not much sounded appetizing at the time. The bars were cool, I loved the location of the rooftop bar but it was very windy that day so couldn't stand to be up there long, just took pictures of the views and left. The pool was AWESOME! I expected it to be cold/cool because it's Florida, but no it was heated to the perfect temperature! Life guards are on duty as well. The only thing I didn't like about the pool was that ducks LOVE to come and swim in it and of course what goes in must come out, and apparently you're not allowed to try to shoo them away either. Overall I enjoyed our short, but enjoyable stay and will definitely come back. Read less
