A Tour of Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort A Prime Value Resort!

Welcome to Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort! I had the opportunity to stay at this resort a couple of weeks ago and it is was a retro delight! If you are looking for a great value with plenty of room for your family to spread out during your stay, this is the perfect resort!

With it's 1950's and 60's theme, you will feel like you have stepped back in time to a period where life was just a little more simpler. That's not to say that there are not plenty of modern day amenities. You will find this hotel very charming and the fact that is within walking distance to Universal's newest park, Volcano Bay, you just can't go wrong!

So, lets get started on our picture tour of this resort!

The Lobby!

In the far left picture, you can see the queue where you wait to check in. During my stay, it was a short wait and the staff was very efficient and accommodating! The center picture shows the retro seating area in the lobby and the far right picture shows a glimpse of the gift shop available at this resort.

The Rooms!

During my visit, I stayed in a family suite. These are very spacious rooms with a kitchenette, living area with a full size , pull out sofa, sleeping area with 2 queen beds, and bathroom area that is divided up into three areas which makes it a breeze for getting ready! This room also features a large closet for storage and drawers for putting your belongings away. Something else I love about these rooms is that you can partition the bedroom area off from the living area and create a more private feeling. These rooms accommodate up to 6 people.

Upon entering the room, you enter the kitchenette which is equipped with a mini fridge, small sink, single serve coffee maker , and a microwave.
Here you see the seating area for both the kitchenette and living area. The couch pulls out into a bed and there is a TV in this area as well.
This is the main sleeping area. with two queen beds.
This is the storage area for clothing as well as the wall that slides to partition of the living area from the sleeping area.
In the far corner is the large, walk in closest.
This is the shower and bath area with its own sink.
There is another sink area between the shower area and toilet area.

There are other types of rooms available as well at Cabana Bay. They have the typical standard size hotel room that sleeps 4 and two bedroom family suites that accommodate up to 8 people. There are only 20 of these two bedroom family suites available! If you are interested in one of these, you must book early! The floor plan for these two bedroom, family suites is pictured below.
