I thought I’d pop in today with a review of Universal Orlando’s Sapphire Falls Resort. This moderate level resort is an island paradise just a short distance from all of the fun and adventure in the theme parks.
From the stone turret in the lobby to the inviting charm of each room and suite, you’re surrounded by a vivid and textured haven that is inspired by landmarks of the islands. Blue waterfalls cascade over lush grounds and in the distance, the calming sounds of steel drums call you to take in the scenic views, ease into island time and let go.
Benefits of staying at a Universal Orlando Resort
There are valuable benefits to staying on-site at a Universal Orlando resort hotel. When staying at Portofino Bay, all guests receive the following. (These benefits also apply to Hard Rock and Royal Pacific.)
Early Park Admission
Visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ and Universal’s Volcano Bay™ one hour before the theme park opens with paid theme park admission.
Get There Faster
Enjoy complimentary transportation to the theme parks and Universal CityWalk™.
*This resort does not include complimentary Express Pass, which is a HUGE perk of Portofino Bay, Hard Rock and Royal Pacific.
Sapphire Falls has dining covered, with a variety of sit down, grab and go and pool side options.
Strong Water Tavern popular with guests from across the resort, featuring vintage rums, your own rum specialist and tapas-style dining.
The hotel’s 16,000-square-foot pool with a sand beach spells fun and relaxation, as does the hot tub, cabanas (for rent), water slide, children’s play area, fire pit and more. Poolside activities include ping pong tournaments, water balloon tosses, hula hoop contests, an outdoor pool table and more.
There are a variety of room and suite options, offering something for every family. With a separate dining area, spacious living area, kitchenette, luxurious full bath and bedroom this 1,353 square feet Hospitality Suite will be the setting for many great memories.
The kids suite is one of my favorites, both for the space and the darling decor. The two separate rooms are connecting and feature a single entrance to the adult room. The children’s room opens only into the adult’s room, and not into the hallway. There is a king in the adult room and two twins in the kid room.
