This extensive Universal Cabana Bay Beach Resort, Florida, is a pleasant blaze of retro-inspired colour, taking you back to the fun of the 50s and 60s but with all mod cons and, even more importantly, it’s a hop and a skip, or a complimentary shuttle ride from Universal Studios Florida® and Orlando's other family-friendly attractions. Families visiting will enjoy the quirky aspects of the hotel, the excellent historical touches from the shampoo in the bathrooms to the vintage ads on the telly and the close proximity to the rides. After stepping into the past, families can bond over reminiscent memories and hunker down for the pool movie nights to share some popcorn.
When you’re not out and about, along with the pools there’s also a lazy river, a dive-tower waterslide and a sandy beach with cabanas to rent. There’s also a pool bar, daytime activities, games room and bowling alley and you’ll find plenty of places to eat with a food court and restaurant/grill. Families will benefit from early bird admission to the parks and there’s also a service that can drop anything you buy around the parks, back at your room, leaving you hands free to cling on to more rides.
Rooms are brightly coloured, in keeping with the retro theme, and family rooms can sleep up to six, with handy kitchenettes.
