We usually spend our first night in Orlando at Cabana Bay, then switch over to one of the premier hotels to get express passes. This last time, November 18 - 21 2021, we went to Universal for the Orlando Informer Meetup, so we did not go to the parks during the day. Instead, for the first time, we were able to use the pool and eatery there for a few days in a row. Being diabetic, I have to watch what I eat and their cafeteria gave me enough choices to eat healthy, while the rest of the family enjoyed their food.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Cabana Bay. Ease of access to the parks is phenomenal and where our room was (tower 7), the entrance to the water park was mere steps away. Loved the pools at the hotel and food was great.

I was very surprised that we did not have a microwave in our room. There was one to use in the food court but it was a 7 minute walk back to the room to have cold food. When I asked about no microwave I was told “you booked a standard room” I never stayed any places that did not offer a microwave in the room. I had no clue that a standard room means no microwave. They could at least put one on every floor by the ice machine so you didn’t have to walk to the food court. The pool and lazy river was great, the kids did not want to get out.

We enjoyed our stay at Cabana Bay Resort. Very convenient to Universal, with clean and quick shuttles to CityWalk. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our family enjoyed the food options, the pools, and all the amenities. Most of our days were spent at the parks, and I wish I had planned more time to spend at the hotel.

Universal's Cabana Bay is our happy place for getaways to Florida and the parks. Pre-COVID, the salad bar was a standout (nothing really comparable that we'd found), and now the premade salads are also very good. Finding a good salad is rare, so this is definitely a plus. The transportation to the parks is convenient and frequent. The retro vibe/atmosphere throughout the hotel is unmatched. Maybe Cabana Bay will start some type of frequent guest rewards program?
