We checked in to the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel just prior to Hurricane Matthew. The hotel staff was absolutely amazing. They took such good care of us when the parks were closed. They had activities, games and movies set up for the kids. They had a really nice buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner available since all the restaurants were closed. We were so impressed, we will not stay anywhere else near Universal. Plus, the hotel is in walking distance to the parks, which was perfect!

Awesome hotel, we loved being so close to Universal/CityWalk but being in a quiet hotel, pool with the slide was great for the kids. The staff was all super friendly and helpful.

This hotel was perfect for our family vacation to Universal. Upon arrival, the staff was amazing; check in was a breeze; the room was perfect for our family of 5 & anything we requested was brought to our room within minutes. The restaurants were great with many choices. The pools were beautiful & very well maintained. The grounds were immaculate at all times! It's so easy to get to the Universal front gates or to Universal city walk either along the foot path that is well lit & kept clean or by water taxi which runs all the time (& the girls just loved it!). By far, the best hotel we have stayed at for so many reasons....staff, decor, amenities....it was all perfectly wonderful!
