I think how much you like this hotel will all depend on how much you value being near to a park.
I always avoid Disney hotels like the plague believing they're overpriced and don't allow my brain some down time. However, I foolishly threw my logic out of the window and booked Lowes Royal Pacific because it looked fabulous online and I wanted to see if I was missing out, always staying off property.
Personally, the geographical pay off is just not worth it. Sure the water taxi was brilliant and such a great asset to the hotel. The reception area is beautiful as well.
The room was ok, acceptable but I really missed not having a balcony. The pool area was super busy and small (then again the last place I stayed was the Hyatt with their enormous pool so maybe I've been spoilt) Room service is average, the restaurants are ok...in fact everything is OK...except the price tag.
For the price 'OK' and a water taxi isn't enough for me. I'd rather stay off site (I love the Lake Buena Vista area) and get more bang for my buck plus far superior facilities and probably free buses.

Room Tip: We had a shocking view that was totally blocked by a tonne of bamboo (ground floor) the higher the floor the better I guess!

It is a bit pricey but aligned with Universal and Disney costs. Nice hotel; great staff; good food and drink. A bit pricey for those a la carte options. Generally, worth it for early access to Harry Potter and for Express pass for long lines.

This was our 5th trip to Universal Studios and our first at this hotel. Everything was very positive about our stay. Our room was perfect, it actually looked like the pictures. To be able to take a short boat ride to the parks gave us so much more time to fit in pool time, which was lovely.
The only negative was for the price you pay for water in your room at almost $8 is shameful for the hotel. The exact water is $2 at the grocery stores. The express pass was amazing seeing as we were there in March.

Stayed: March 2018

THIS is the place to be if you want value, excellent service, proximity to the park and, best of all, express passes to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. We didn't wait for than 25 minutes for any rides with those passes. It made ALL the difference in the world. The rooms were tidy and efficient. Not over the top, but comfortable beds, clean!
