“The Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando is great hotel and just a water taxi away from the part entrances. The hotel is lovely and it's great that the Express passes are included in the price! We HIGHLY recommend the Express passes because they are worth it and saved us so much time during the busy summer travel season. The water taxi is very efficient and a great way to get to the park entrances. Note, if it is storming outside, the water taxis don't run. We walked the 0.7 miles back to the hotel via the garden walk (it's a beautiful walk along the river) one evening when it wouldn't stop lightening. I recommend this hotel and location!”

“What a unique gem! Who would think that within walking distance to a theme park one could find such luxury and theming of Italy.... I was blown away. It was so beautiful I couldn't stop taking photos. I really enjoyed not only the convenience but the BEAUTY of the walking path to the park. We also used the water taxi which was fun and convenient as well. Luckily I had scheduled a pool day for myself during my trip and the service and food poolside were excellent. I can't wait to go back.”
