My family stayed at the Universal Palm prior to our Caribbean cruise. The staff was great and very accommodating. Our party of 6 were given a really nice suite on the 4th floor overall looking the beautiful heated pool. The hotel has a number of very nice intimate outside sitting areas complete with flowing fountains and statues. It also has a nice workout room and the lobby is filled with large oversized comfy couches. The bar + grill had killer chicken wings and actually provided my family with a free round of drinks! We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at the Universal Palm and would come back without a moment's hesitation - ask for Joel, the wonderful Hotel Manager, or Monica and they will make sure your stay is a pleasant one.
