We took the shuttle to universal- awesome! No driving needed and there was hardly a wait. The hotel staff is very nice and our kids love everything they offer by the pools.

The room although it was big it was quite crowded not a nice flow to it. The soap and shampoo different brands like a cheap hotel. While my son scrapped his knee running by the pool, there was no Quico first aid near by, we had to wait for security to come with bandaids. The food from dinner was mediocre for the price. The kids did enjoy the pool and the hotel but as an adult I would rather stay at any other Disney hotel than universal.

I like the convenience of the proximity to the theme parks. I didn't like the check-in process, it took over 25 minutes. Our room was supposed to be volcano view and ended up being a rooftop view next to a trash compactor where employees would work at 1 or 2am n the morning. Shower hardware fell apart even before getting in. Hand sanitizer stations either broken or dismantled. Wasn't what we expected this time around

The emergency alarm sounded in our building waking us up we called the front desk and they did not answer. It wasn’t going off anywhere else and my friends son happened to be working out and she called him he alerted the front desk as we stayed in our room for 20 minutes with the alarm sounding . It stopped and they said there was no emergency over the speaker but no other explanation. The fact that the front desk wouldn’t answer and had no idea there was as an alarm going off while we sat in our room afraid was ridiculous. Had it been a serious incident and or a fire we wouldn’t have known as the alarm advised us to stay in our room while the emergency was investigated. Very scary for myself, my friend and our children.
