“Our 14th annual stay at the Royal Pacific Resort!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We stayed for five nights (May 27 to June 1, 2014) at Loew’s Royal Pacific Resort and had a wonderful time. This is the 14th consecutive time that we have stayed at the Royal Pacific on our annual trip to Universal Studios Orlando. Needless to say, we really enjoy staying here! It is like a second home to us.

Accessibility to individuals with mobility impairments is very important to us, because my daughter uses a manual wheelchair to get around. Everything at the Royal Pacific and the parks is so accessible that she is able to come and go independently from place to place within the hotel and into the parks. It is a great relief not to have to worry about whether there will be curb cuts or ramps as we travel around the hotel and the parks.

We have always stayed on the Club Level on the 7th (top) floor of Tower 3. The staff in the Club Lounge are exceedingly helpful and friendly, whether it’s answering a question like how late are the parks open today or how do I get to the nearest emergency room (not this trip, fortunately), calling the gift shop to see if they have earplugs in stock, or providing bottled water for our day in the parks or traveling home.

We especially enjoy how easy it is to get from the Royal Pacific to Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios and City Walk. If it’s nice out we often take the 10 minute walk to Islands of Adventure and City Walk. If our feet need a break or we’re headed for Universal Studios, we take the boat. On this trip for the first time we also took the Shuttle Bus back to the hotel from City Walk. This is a handy option when the boats aren’t running due to the weather.

We were determined to do as many of our favorite things at the hotel as possible on this trip, so we spent half a day at the pool, ordered Shipwrecked nachos one evening from the poolside Bula Bar and Grille, and stopped in several times to Jake’s for ice cream, iced coffee or a nightcap.

Last but not least, the Royal Pacific is a beautiful place. The sculpture alone has inspired me to take photographs in the courtyard, along the walkway to the parks, beside the pool, on the walkway to the driveway, etc.

I would encourage anyone to make reservations as early as possible in your trip planning to be sure of getting the dates and room types you are hoping for. I'll soon start planning our next trip!

Great place to stay with the grandchildren. Superb service. The staff was very friendly and customer oriented. Great pool area. The express pass to Universal Islands of Adventure is a definite plus. Great getaway for couples and family. Rooms were adequate in size, quiet and comfortable.

Had an amazing stay at Loews Pacific. Enjoyed the express passes for the parks, the water taxi ride, the buffet breakfast and the gorgeous rooms. The check in and fast check out experience was great also. Will definitely be staying there again.

We will always stay here whenever possible when we visit Universal. Beautiful decor, great atmosphere, but we do wish the drinks at the pool bar were a little cheaper, as we like to enjoy ourselves more than usual while on vacation! Thanks to the entire staff - every single one of them has a smile and a greeting. Wish we could make it there more than once a year!!

Room Tip: Ask for a water view room - great view of Island Of Adventure! The Hulk helped us sleep!

Spent a few days here in June 2014 and my sister and I loved every moment of it. The staff were super friendly, the room was great. We slept like babies in the quiet room in Tower 2. The pool is lovely, lots of space, the Emeril restaurant was very nice, we took pics in every part of the hotel!! Oh and we got our express passes as soon as we checked in, which was early by the way. Breakfast in the lobby area was perfect for coffee and bagels. Everything was so convenient and I have to say, of all the resorts there, this was the easiest to access the parks and City Walk. You also receive good info pamphlets on various happy hour times and restaurant deals. This was helpful. I really want to head back already so I can book the luau as that looked nice though we could not squeeze in as we enjoyed the parks so much too. Would definitely recommend this to all my colleagues that contact me for suggestions on where to stay when they visit Orlando. Love this resort! By the way, this is my first time submitting a hotel review and I have travelled internationally for 10 plus years.

This was our first time staying at one of the 3 Universal hotels and let me tell you we wont ever be able to stay anywhere else! This place is gorgeous! Full of trees, plants, the surrounding is gorgeous. Check in was fast and we immediately went to the kiosk to get our express pass done. Our room was beautiful and bigger than average with a king size bed! The boat to the parks was nice but if it wasnt there, it took us less than 10 minutes to walk to the parks. What a perk! It was nice to have the express pass although the parks werent insanely busy. ALso, we were also allowed to go in the Harry Potter section at 8am, one hour prior to official opening. It was nice as we were able to ride the main ride 3 times in a row with minimal wait and have a butterbeer without waiting for long. Overall, this hotel is gorgeous but location and perks (express pass + early entry) is worth every penny

I stayed at the Royal Pacific because of the early entry and the express lines. It is overpriced but it has a very nice lobby, pool and restaurants. Service and maintenance is OK, but not to Disney's standards. The shuttle is useful.
