    Exceptionally clean. Pools and fire pit were awesome for smores. Shuttle takes you to citywalk for free until 2:30 am which is where universal is located. Check out citywalk but there is so much to do a the hotel,bars, line singer on certain nights and he was awesome bowling was fun cafeteria food were large portions for like$10. Starbucks in hotel, if you get tired of cafeteria food go to citywalk chocolate emporium great for kids or walk to nearby hotels for different food bit cabana has a variety of options. Pool is heated which was awesome. Loved this place will definately Cabana Bay again.

    Wish there was free hotel shuttle. Some of the staff are new to the country so they can't speak english yet. I thought they were being rude until one of the younger employees explained it to me and then I understand why they weren't replying back so don't take it personal.

    Good location - 20 mins from airport and Disney. Free shuttle to universal. 50 mins to port Canaveral. Food - canteen, Starbucks, bowling and bar are great choices. Pool - we didn’t have a chance to use the pool but it’s nice if you decide to use it

    Pool music - very loud music starting at 7ish in the morning since the pool open at 8am. Please note that it is not light jazz or piano but rock hip hop music! I have never been to a hotel where they blast loud music so early in the morning. The window was shaken with the beat. Since it’s our first time to this hotel, We paid for a bit more to get an interior partial pool room thinking it would be quieter but when we first got there they placed us on 2nd floor where there is absolutely no interior partial view of the pool. All you can see is a connecting walkway from the ground where people could look into your room so all you can do is close the curtain at all time. Ok no view fine but the super loud music is Unbelievable especially we were at low level!! After 2nd day I had no choice but to complain since I have a 6 years and 70+ years in the room that couldn’t get some sleep. We then got reassigned to a different room but since there is no room available we had to first packed our stuff moved our luggage downstair, store it until the room was ready in the late afternoon. It was certainly not a good experience but at least they were willing to relocate us. Overall I like the hotel but the loud music should be completely turned off. Horrible! No one wants a wake up call in the morning during vacation! Other then this, everything was great. Also if you are not with a family, please consider to choose other hotels. Lots of kids running around. this is not a honeymoon hotel for quiet couple.

    I liked that u could walk to volcano bay and had a private entrance. Also, the busses were very fast on picking us up to travel to and from city walk. Great view of the volcano from our room!

    I did not like that their restaurant was dirty/messy. They did not provide transportation to and from sea world and discovery cove, even though it was nearby. We had to purchase rafts to ride in the lazy river. Some lights were not working on the path.
