Actual Views from Universal Orlando Hotels

February 25, 2019
Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort View of Volcano Bay

The first thing I do when I open the door to my hotel room is run to the window, peel back the curtains and soak in the view. At our hotels, the views are absolutely incredible. You can find yourself taking in a breathtaking view of the Italian seaside, spotting some of your favorite rides from our beautiful skyline or even opening your curtains to a huge volcano.

Here are some of my favorite views from our resort hotels.

Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort

Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort Volcano Views

This view… is amazing. If you’re staying in one of our Volcano View tower suites at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, you get an awesome view of Krakatau, the centerpiece of Universal Volcano Bay. You can practically map out your water theme park experience from your window.

Universal’s Aventura Hotel

Universal's Aventura Hotel View

There are no words to describe the view from 17 stories up at Bar 17 Bistro. You can find this marvelous view of the entire Universal Orlando Resort at Universal’s Aventura Hotel. This is our newest hotel and if you haven’t had a chance to enjoy some food and drinks up here, you’re missing out! Learn more about the food at Aventura Hotel here.

Loews Sapphire Falls Resort

The view from Strong Water Tavern at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort is absolutely stunning. You see waterfalls, our lagoon and a look at Loews Royal Pacific Resort and Universal Islands of Adventure.

One of the most tranquil views we offer is right on the patio of Jake’s American Bar at Loews Royal Pacific Resort. I love having lunch next to the tranquil waterfall while taking in the lush green scenery around me.

Hard Rock Hotel Orlando

Hard Rock Hotel Orlando 7th Floor View

This view from the 7th floor at Hard Rock Hotel has one of my favorite skylines. At night, you can catch Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit lighting up the sky. The best part is, if you look down you have an awesome view of the pool.

Loews Portofino Bay Hotel

Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando Resort

This is the view from the Water Taxi arriving at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel overlooking the Italian seaside harbor piazza. It is absolutely stunning and incredibly picturesque. These views make you feel as if you’ve taken a jet plane from the parks right on over to Italy.

Please note that all of these views are not available at all room types or hotels. Please speak to your hotel concierge to determine which view would fit your vacation best.

    Are you able to hop on and off the water taxi and visit other hotels without purchasing a theme park ticket? We just want to check out the other hotels while we are there. Thanks.

    Meu esposo e eu nos hospedamos no Cabana Bay em janeiro/2019 e ficamos encantados com tudo.
    Pretendemos voltar tão logo termine a pandemia em que vivemos mas gostaríamos de saber se vocês
    fazem algum desconto para militares das Forças Armadas de outro país, pois somos militares e gostaríamos de desfrutar de alguns benefícios.
