Hotel room was large and comfortable. Service was outstanding. This was our first time staying onsite and we will always do so in the future. Being able to go back to the hotel for a mid-day swim and just relax was wonderful. The only issue we had was the mini fridge we were given was loud and did not cool well. If you plan to use the pool and want a shaded area to sit you will need to get there early as these areas go quickly. Our favorite part of this hotel was the harbor piazza. It was beauti... Read more

I booked the trip for myself and my granddaughter as a gift for her college graduation. We wanted to stay on-site due to the amenities and easy access to Universal Studios. Our entire stay was amazing. The entire staff from the moment we arrived to the moment we left was above above average. The only suggestion I would make, is to have more a more affordable a diverse restaurant choice.

After returning from a 3 day Disney Dream Cruise (Pt Canaveral separate TR), we booked 3 nights at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Studio for our visit to Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure. The Hotel is well appointed, rooms meticulously clean, staff very professional and helpful. The eateries were well located and the boat to the park was a definite plus! We had pizza and a bottle of wine one evening in the courtyard. To our pleasant surprise there was entertainment in the c... Read more

Best part of Portifino is the boat service to Universal and the Express Pass that comes with the room. There is a Starbucks on property, so early am departure to the park with coffee is a breeze. Our room was large. There were issues with the room (handles that came off the doors, non-working safe, maids who did not leave enough towels, etc...). I've stayed at all three Lowes properties and would likely go back to Royal Pacific next trip and save the extra $100/night.

A first class hotel with hotel rooms above various restaurants and bars. These are set around a lagoon with a jetty and frequent boats to ferry you right into the heart of Universal studios. Meals and drinks are very expensive but there again you are paying for a unique hotel. Staff and service were excellent but to be honest there is more to do in Disney perhaps mainly because of the larger number of parks.The exterior setting of Hogwarts and HPoftter is amazing but for the interior is not as w...

This hotel was perfect for what I was looking for. I went for a couples get away to see the Harry Potter parks. We stayed in the west wing, which was the closest to the water taxi. That saved us lots of time from walking around the whole resort when we were rushing to the parks for early admission. When the parks closed the water taxi ride was gorgeous at night, and then quiet when we docked. Restaurants were busy, but the foods worth the wait. Grounds are very well kept, staff is great. Enjoyed... Read more

A lovely property that we have stayed at multiple times as Annual Pass and Loews YouFirst program members. We have stayed at all the Universal On-Site hotels (both club and "regular")and while each has its own benefits, the Portofino is by far our favorite for a relaxing, refreshing get away. You can experience both the parks and then return to lovely property to relax. Exceptional service from Daniella at the Front desk on this trip. James in Concierge recognized us from a previous stay at C... Read more

I showed up to the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel and my reservation could not be located in their database. Not a problem! Amanda the front desk manager found the reason for the confusion on our reservation (miscommunication with American Express Travel) and made sure that we had a comfortable room and passes to the Club. This was just the beginning of a wonderful stay! The food onsite is fantastic, every employee we encountered at the Loews and both Universal Parks were very friendly, and the h... Read more

Great Hotel. Beautiful views. Suggest requesting harbor view. It is worth it. Note that the hotel has great restaurants but does not participate in the Universal Dining Plan. When we return we will not be getting the Plan. It is a bit further away from the parks but the water taxi is a wonderful way to travel.
