This hotel was a very nice surprise. The pool is excellent. They have an excellent bar/ restaurant and it is in a great location. Highway 95 is right there so you can pretty much get anywhere with no problems. Eurika and Maritza along with the rest of the staff was very courteous and friendly and assisted me with what ever...

This hotel has the friendliest, most helpful, happy and welcoming staff of any hotel where I have stayed. Eurika and Maritza tag team the front desk with style and joy. Each time I visit the front desk when they are on I leave pleased with the hotel and remembering why I choose universal palms again and again.

All I have to say about this hotel is that they've spent the right amount of money beautifying their lobby and website. That's pretty much where it ends though.

Sharell and Shawn did a great job resolving a reservation issue in the system very quickly. Sharell was also very accommodating and professional when I asked for a different room. Overall the staff is very nice and... More

The pool and outdoor lounge area were very inviting, beautiful landscape. The breakfast was the typical continental fare but not included in your stay. The rooms were clean but no fridge or microwave. The night of our stay we left to eat at a local eatery and upon our return the parking lot was completely filled and it was a... More
