“"We'll be baaack!!!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Excellent hotel. Bring your entire family, from children to grandparents. Best trip to "memory lane" ever! Cleanliness, exquisite decorating, facilities, transportation to the parks, awesome staff throughout the entire stay. Beautifully decorated. Only complaint is the pillows. Bring your own. Other than that, do not hesitate to book a room, especially if you want to enjoy early park entry. Don't forget to save a day or two to hangout and enjoy the pools, bowling alley, etc. I loved it!!

We stayed here with some extended family members and we had a great time. We loved the pool area but thought it was strange that you had to rent tubes for the lazy river. The water slide in the other pool area was a favorite of my children. We wanted to go bowling, but the wait was 4 hours and we didn't want to wait until after 10 pm to bowl. The food court was nice. We stayed in a pool view room and while it was beautiful, I would recommend staying in a different type of room if you want to go to bed early because there was music down by the pool both nights that kept my 5 year old up way past her bedtime.

Stayed November 2014

Resort was easily accessible from I-4,check-in was quick and easy,We were assigned to Americana building 6 one of the farthest buildings from the lobby,and food court,but only a short walk through the other buildings or the court yard.The room overlooked the lazy river,but also had a view of the construction site next door.either way it was quiet.The room was a standard double Queen and was great for 2 people,but It would be tight for a family of 4 the only seating being 2 small chairs and table,there was a small but adequate fridge and a large flat Hd tv.The room was very clean and room service did a great job,it featured both free wifi and also paid for more than 5 devices.We ate most of our meals in the parks but the food in the Diner(food court) was good and priced about the same as those in the parks,the eating area was huge.We spent time in the pool and lazy river which are kept between 82-85 degrees.both were well patrolled by life guards.
The staff was very friendly and helpful without exception.Hotel was tastefully designed throughout in a retro theme.The bus service to the park was excellent,we never had to wait,although it was an off season week.The resort is slightly farther from the park han the upscale resorts,but still only 5 min away.
This resort would probably not suit those expecting a five star resort,but was excellent for those who want a great resort for a fair price.The only reason I did not give it five stars is that the rooms at least those like ours were A little small for more than 2 people(i'm sure they have others more suitable for a higher price)the only thing I found annoying was the nightly $10 +tax fee for self parking.

Room Tip: Choose a room on 5 th floor or above if poolside,I understand the pool area can get noisey when busy...

Cabana Bay is first and foremost, a well run, very clean and attractive resort. Its retro decor added a lot of fun atmosphere to our stay. The shuttle buses to the Universal Parks were super efficient. We never waited more than a few minutes for a bus at either end of the journey. All the staff were courteous. The room was very clean upon arrival, and cleaned beautifully each day we were at the parks. Overall - a great place to stay. Both pools were a lot of fun.

The retro feel of the Cabana Bay Beach Resort was only the icing on top of the cake for my visit. They provided wonderful service, + even though I only stayed for one night, I would suggest this hotel to anyone. It gears toward all ages + is perfect if you are looking to go to the theme parks because of their personal bus service that will take you to + from!
