Review: Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando Resort

Universal Series

Welcome back to our educational series on the Universal Orlando Resort! If you are just joining us be sure to catch up here. 

We are theme park addicts here at Guru Travel. We believe in spending good quality time with your family and theme parks provide a fully inclusive experience for families. This is why we believe in staying on property when you travel to the Universal Orlando Resort. Here is our review of the deluxe property, Loews Portofino Bay.

At the Portofino Bay Hotel, you will experience a refined, calm, romantic environment where you can enjoy your evening coffee or wine in the piazza as singers sing the background.

Why stay on property?
When you stay on property  you’ll enjoy exclusive benefits including FREE Universal Express Unlimited access to SKIP THE REGULAR LINES* in both theme parks, and Early Park Admission† to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ one hour before the theme parks open. You’re also within walking distance-or a short, complimentary water taxi ride-from both theme parks and Universal CityWalk!

This resort is just stunning! It is the most luxurious resort at the Universal Orlando Resort. Every room in this resort offers views of the beautifully manicured lawns with all of the touches from Italy.  Garden view rooms can come with either a king bed or two queen beds and are a very spacious 450 square feet. It is important to note that you can also stay in one of the many suite options but the Garden view rooms are so spacious and luxurious. Contact your Guru Agent to inquire about a suite.

If you are a coffee drinker…you will LOVE the fact that all of the deluxe resorts have a Keurig coffee machine in each room. The housekeeping staff will refill your k-cups each day but feel free to bring your own if you have a preference.
