I've stayed at the other Universal hotels and wanted to give this one a try. Overall, the price was great, the hotel was new, clean, and has extremely nice pools. I had a family suite which was a large room at a great price. It was also comfortable and clean.
I liked the shuttle buses that alway appeared when you needed one. I do wish there was an easier way to walk to the resort (that doesn't involve running across a big road) because it is literally across the street.
The only real issue I had during my stay was that nothing was ever cooked well. In fact, the turkey I had on a sandwich at the bowling alley was almost frozen, and this was supposed to be a hot sandwich. I also had a panini on a separate occasion that had cold meat and bread but melted cheese. I don't even know how that happens. I'm sure things will get better once they work the kinks out.
