This hotel could be brilliant but lets itself down time and time again on customer service which is terrible for such a supposed high end resort. I was invited by the hotel after my stay to post a review but my feeling is that they are only interested in positive reviews. Will anyone reply to this from the management team?... More

We had the best time staying at the Hard Rock. The complimentary Express Passes were a Bonus & used a lot. Visit the Beach Bar to experience the hospitality of Natasha & Kyle & some good drink! Fantastic

If you have teenagers, you must stay here. Very close to the Universal parks, free Express passes for duration of your stay, rockstar service though-out the hotel, great food & drink, reasonable prices, great facilities, and a hotel that allows you to go at your own pace...either mad hectic and busy (check out DJ Scooter sessions by the pool!), or...

We had a really relaxing stay here. We would definitely recommend. We stayed two nights whilst Halloween Horror Nights was on. With this hotel's close proximity to the parks it makes an excellent location to stay.

Hotel facilities do not cope with demand at peak times. It is one of only three hotels available to enable guests to take advantage of early park openings - essential when visiting Harry potter and was disappointing! Portofino bay much better option,

We slipped out of universal studios for lunch and found this next door to the entrance. The service was good, all waiters well trained and motivated. Food was very tasty for a burger and steak bar and was quick. My only comment would be the massive portions, much too much, had to throw half of it away. With hindsight we... More

Have to admit we are HRC fans but this place (think the biggest in The World) is just bloody awesome. How they keep up the service standards and the high quality of food only God himself knows. But they do and we loved our 2 visits here. The music, the memorabilia, the atmosphere and even the drinks and food are... More

The communal areas are great - pool lovely and gardens beautiful. Service and rooms didn't feel particularly special and I've experienced better in 4 star accommodation. However the location is excellent and the early entry to Harry Potter at Universal and the express passes are worth it!

Nice hotel, cool stuff, soft beds, walking distance to universal but everything is soooooo expensive. $4 coffee $3.50 water, $4.00 snack bag of chips. The pool is nice but crowded, have to get there early to reserve a seat. Kids enjoyed the water slide. Prices at kitchen restaurant??? $17 burger and fries. Cost $18 for a kids burger to be... More

It was an okay experience. Not sure that the service / quality was worth the dollars. A bit on the expensive side. Do not recommend the hospitality suite. Poor location…..close to the pool. Very loud!
