Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort is a moderately priced hotel and resort located within walking distance of Universal Orlando theme parks and the Universal CityWalk dining and entertainment complex. Standard and suite rooms, a wide range of dining options, and two oversized pools make the Cabana Bay Beach Resort an attraction in and of itself.

Ideal for those who want to enjoy the best of Universal Orlando and have some relaxing pool time as well, the 2,200-room Cabana Bay Beach Resort features everything that a family needs to have a vacation that's relaxing and yet thrilling.

The hotel features two oversized pools with a waterslide and lazy river along with an on-site 10-lane bowling alley.

The decor at Cabana Bay is a throwback to the 1950s. Glitzy furnishings, pastel tones and plenty of retro kitsch give this resort an atmosphere that makes it feel like a true escape. But, this doesn't mean guests won't enjoy all the amenities and luxuries of the modern day as rooms and suites are complete with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, coffee makers, and excellent views of the pool or Universal's Volcano Bay.

The Cabana Bay Beach Resort provides a wide array of dining options for families and adults. Seven bars and restaurants are located on the property including Starbucks, the classic 50s-style Bayliner Diner, and the Swizzle Lounge cocktail bar. Poolside dining and room service are also available, as is easy access to a number of off-site restaurants within walking distance.

Affordable prices, an excellent location, fun-filled attractions, and exclusive Universal Orlando theme park access make Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort a great choice for families.

8.0 Great
Pros:Close to universal resort. Great decoration and theme.
Cons:Requested park view, could see nothing but bamboo. Limited amount of pillows.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:We thought beds were very comfortable. Free Upgrade was great! Theme was fun and details were impressive.
Cons:Room furniture needed a little TLC. Nothing that upholstery cleaners couldn’t fix. But all in all very comfortable and spacious! Would definitely recommend and return.
6.5 Okay
Cons:We went to breakfast and talked with friends until 12:30 or 1:00 and were charged a second day for parking!!!!!!!!!
9.7 Excellent
Pros:We loved the resort and room decor, cleanliness, friendly staff, fun pool with water slide and lazy river, and the suite was set up perfect for getting ready with three kids (separate shower/toilet/sink and mirror). It was in an excellent location with easy access to the Universal parks. Shuttle was quick and easy. Our teens (18, 17 and 13) LOVED Cabana Bay!
9.4 Excellent
Pros:While not the most elegant place to stay it is a great value if you want to stay on Universal property. Early admission and bus transport to park made All the difference in our Harry Potter experience! And the cafeteria had very well prepared food (and large portions) for breakfast/dinner at a reasonable price. Important for us as my husband has to watch diet due to diabetes.
2.0 Bad
Pros:It’s was close to universal
Cons:They put us in the wrong room when we asked and paid for a room with a view of Volcano Bay. Then we moved to another room and the TV was broken. We called them several times but the TV remained broken. The place has no proper restaurants. Only a diner/supermarket kids place. We were very dissatisfied
9.1 Excellent
Pros:We really enjoyed the pools, lazy river, movie on the lawn, bowling, and the food. We love it!
Cons:It's a bit pricey, but not terrible.
8.0 Great
Pros:Fun theming especially for baby boomers. I would rate the hotel as slightly above a Disney value resort with the theming, facilities and location/ transportation all just a little better.
Cons:The location is not very convient to the parks and transportation was good but like any bus system there was a wait. With such high traffic roads I can see why walking is not a good option. All in all if staying in site again I would make a different choice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:We will be back! This hotel is really cool and convenient. It was sold out while we were there, but the way it's laid out, it doesn't feel as though there are people everywhere. Lots to do, always clean, shuttle service to the parks was awesome. Truly a great experience!
8.5 Great
Pros:Food court & pool lazy river
Cons:Small rooms
