Loved the atmosphere from the moment we entered the lobby. There's a great vibe and loved the pictures and music. The room was average but comfortable. We had 2 queen size beds which was fine for a family of 4 but I wouldn't want to spend too much time in it. BUT as the hotel has a great pool area... More

We stayed in the Hard Rock in July 2012 and from start to finish has a fantastic time . The rooms are a great size and are ideal for families. We all loved the Pool area with "DJ Scooter" entertaining everyone, so much fun for the kids. We ate at the Pool Bar area and everyone was happy with their... More

We had our first "once in a lifetime" family holiday to Disney Orlando in February 2012 and were so dissappointed with "everything Disney" that we took in Universal for the final two days. We had such a good time that we decided to redeem ourselves in the eyes of our children and booked a week just for Universal. We booked... More

We loved this hotel. Laid back, easy check-in. The pool has a nightly 'Dive-in' movie. Happy hour in the bar for 2 hours..5 til 7. Restaurant had lots of choice...fairly priced..not cheap...excellent service. Our room was large and had all we needed, safe and coffee machine..coffee provided. If you drink tea source or bring teabags and use machine for hot... More

We stayed at The Hard Rock Hotel at the Universal Resort Orlando in August 2012. First impressions were good. We had paid for 'Level 7' accommodation. This is supposed to be the better rooms in the hotel located on the top floor and accessed with your room card in the lift 'Club Level'. Our room seemed to be tucked away... More

I must say this hotel disapointed me. It was exspensive so I expected it to be really nice. The rooms VERY average. Our "garden view" room was no where near a garden. It overlooked a service parking lot. The room was "cleanish". There was tons of dust collected on the mirror over the sink, the coffee area was very dusty... More

Words can't even describe our wonderful experience at Hard Rock, Orlando. Our family of 6 with 2 children ages 11 and 7, their parents and grandparents LOVED this hotel! The value of the exceptional hotel stay, express passes, water taxi and the hour early into Universal was a GREAT value! The pool and slide were favorites of my kids and... More

However, EVERYTHING has a price - parking $17 ............ fridge in room (if required) $15/night ................ hire of microwave (if required) .................. and so it goes on. We... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed it. The hotel is gorgeous and the staff were very helpful. Rooms are large and the pool is brilliant! Music is played throughout the hotel and pool area but the rooms are very quiet. The added bonus of staying here is the short walk to Universal and Islands of Adventure and... More
