It truly pays to stay where you play. Here are 10 reasons staying on-site during your next Universal Orlando Resort vacation will make you never want to leave.

1. Immerse Yourself into a Themed New World

Just because you’ve left the parks doesn’t mean you have to go back to reality. Keep living your best vacation because our hotels are themed to perfection:

Loews Portofino Bay Hotel – relax within an Italian seaside village.

Hard Rock Hotel – live like a rock star.

Loews Royal Pacific Resort – escape to a South Seas paradise.

Loews Sapphire Falls Resort – unwind in a Caribbean island retreat.

Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort – revel in retro fun with a Florida twist.

COMING IN 2018: Universal’s Aventura Hotel – experience a new, modern lifestyle.

2. Earn that Unlimited Free Universal Express Access

Three of the five hotels on property—Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel, and Loews Royal Pacific Resort—include Universal Express Unlimited access with their stay. They’re valid at all attractions at Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure. That means you get to skip the regular lines and ride more rides during your time in park.

3. Quick and Easy Transportation

Whether you’re taking the famous water taxis, shuttle bus or walking, you’re never more than a few minutes away from all the action of Universal Orlando’s three theme parks. That extra hour of sleep in the morning will work wonders.

4. Three Words: Early Park Admission

…Or don’t sleep in and take advantage of Early Park Admission. Each day, one or more theme parks and their most popular attractions open an hour before the scheduled time for on-site hotel guests. Those parks and their attractions include:

Universal Studios Florida

Despicable Me Minion Mayhem

Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts

Universal’s Island of Adventure

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey

Flight of the Hippogriff

Universal’s Volcano Bay

Volcano Bay rides, slides, and attractions are available during Early Park Admission.

5. All the Amenities

It’s true – we’ve got all the things you didn’t know you needed. Looking to rejuvenate at the spa? Got it. Want to work off the big dinner you had last night? We have complimentary fitness facilities. Craving some friendly competition? Step into our game room, my friend.

6. Afternoons at the Pool

After a long morning of exploring the parks, it’s about time to grab a drink and pull up an inner tube. Our refreshing hotel pools will help you rest up before heading back out for the evening’s festivities.

Pro Tip: spend a day pool-hopping and see every resort’s oasis, from the sand-entry at Portofino Bay Hotel all the way to the lazy river at Cabana Bay Beach Resort.

7. Surprises only Universal Orlando can Provide

And don’t worry about carrying large, heavy bags. Have your souvenirs delivered directly to your hotel.

As if all of the above wasn’t enough, staying on-site puts you right in the heart of the best entertainment Orlando has to offer.

Feast and hula at Loews Royal Pacific Resort’s Wantilan Luau, party island-style during the Caribbean Carnaval dinner show at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, watch a live show at Hard Rock Hotel’s Velvet Sessions, enjoy an evening out under the stars at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel’s  Harbor Nights, or head over to CityWalk and dance to the beat of the famous Blue Man Group.

There’s no question you’re going to be staying here during your next vacation. Which resort is the object of your affection?

    “They’re valid at all attractions at Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.” Except that at Universal Studios Florida, you cannot use the Express Pass to ride Fievel’s Water Slide and at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, Universal Express Pass is not available at Pteranodon Flyers.
