We were deciding between finding a vacation rental vs hotel and opted for pacific royal. We are very happy with our decision. It is a short distance from the parks and city walk. We usually walked but a boat is available for the trip. The pool is nice - nothing extraordinary but kids liked it and spent a afternoon there( also a couple of short evenings after the parks). We did not eat at any of the restaurants at the hotel and just opted for the city walk. It was also nice to get the express pass. We were able to ride several favorite rides repeatedly during our stay. Staff was friendly but honestly did not have huge interaction because were out most of the time. Our room was cleaned every day and hotel was well maintained.
