Having been to Orlando twice before, I've always wanted to stay here - but it seemed pricey - but having seen a deal for the nearby Royal Pacific Resort, this was only a bit more expensive, so we went for it and stayed 5 nights! (Cheapest deal was by booking direct with hotel)
The convenience for Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure is soooo worth it. You can walk through the gardens along the waterside in about 5 minutes which is a lovely walk or else catch the water taxi.
There is also a pleasant walk/jogging route up to the Portofino Bay hotel - looks gorgeous and almost takes your breath away it looks just like you are in Italy! Worth going to see it!
The pool area is cool! Especially at weekends and I presume at peak times, there's a DJ and really great music (not just "young stuff" either!) fresh water was a treat too.
Rooms were lovely and comfortable and surprisingly quiet.
My only criticism was that drinks (& I suppose food!) was expensive - we had one drink around the pool and after the expense didn't have another ;)
