Let me start off this review by stating that we stayed here a number of years ago. Our stay was so amazing that we decided to pay a few extra bucks to stay here again. Our stay this time was filled with problems. I already communicated with the hotel management. If we had not had such an amazing time the... More

Rooms were beautiful. Clean. Loved having the Kuerig in the room so I could have fresh coffee every morning. The staff were lots of fun and very helpful. We especially loved being serenaded at Mama Dellas restaurant. The food at both restaurants, Bice and Moma Dellas was fantastic.

Have stayed at the Royal Pacific so we thought we were getting an upgrade. Not the case. Booked a Club Level room so that the 5 of us would have more space and added perks. It didn't seem like it was bigger than any other room. The bathroom was large but, the shower was SO tiny and odd shaped that... More

Was'nt sure if spending a little more was going to be worth it but as it turns out we had a great experience! From the food to the pool to the early entrance and fast passes, it was 100% worth the price we paid. We were only there 3 nights and we played hard. Only regret was we did'nt plan... More

I travel often, sometimes with my family sometimes without. On this trip my company booked us at "The Other Orlando Theme Park", which was fine until... 1.) Half the suite my company paid for was taken away during our stay due to being "Over Booked". Mind you they decided to do this at almost midnight. 2.) The Pre-Paid Amex Card... More

The primary reasons for selecting this location were the convenience of the location and the pet friendly policy. I was extremely impressed with the staff - from the reservations staff, to April at the front desk who was truly charming, pleasant and helpful, and including the the housekeeping staff that were extremely pleasant and helpful. Everyone working on the compound... More

This lovely hotel had every comfort and amenity you could ask for along with a warm and friendly staff. We stayed during the off season and felt like we had a bargain. It's super convenient to the parks as well. We recommend this hotel to everyone and plan to return as soon as we can.

This is a beautiful picturesque hotel. Lots to see. It's almost like you have stepped into Italy when you go. Be prepared to walk though. You park your car then walk about 1/2 a mile to reception them depending on room you walk another mile to your room and another 1/2 a mile to the pools. There are two big... More

We stayed here about 8 years ago and liked it very much. However, this time the hotel was showing its age and the service was average at best. The check-in receptionist gave us bad information about early admission to the parks, as did the concierge. Our room wasn't cleaned and ready for us each day of our three day stay... More
