Why Stay at a Premier Resort at Universal Studios?

by- April Menendez

Is your family looking for a vacation that combines luxury with thrilling adventures? I have the perfect solution for you!  Staying at a premier resort at Universal Orlando offers the ultimate vacation destination for all ages! It is hands down the VERY best way to experience Universal Orlando resort.  There are so many reasons why our family absolutely loves staying at Universal premier resorts, and your family will too! 

One of the biggest benefits of staying at a premier resort is the Complimentary Universal Express Unlimited passes. Who doesn’t like MORE rides, more often, for FREE?! Having the ability to skip the regular lines while at Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure is a perk that cannot be beat. These are a MUST for our family, and anyone visiting the parks.  The premier resorts room keys are that express pass, so simply staying there, gives you that perk.

Another huge benefit of staying premier is the Convenience. The premier resorts are at a prime location to everything that Universal Orlando offers. When you stay premier, you are literally in the heart of the action at Universal Orlando resort. Getting to and from the parks is not only a piece of cake, but it will also help to ensure that your family is the first on site right when the park opens for early entry. That means…less time wasted, and more fun for your family! Whether your family decides to take the complimentary water taxi, shuttle bus, or even the walking path directly to the parks (our family loves the quiet and quick morning stroll) you are sure to beat the crowds, make the most of your time at the parks, and have the least stressful trip back to the resort at the end of the day. 

The perks of staying at a Universal premier resort don’t stop there. Did someone say Priority seating?! That’s right! Our family loves the flexibility that priority seating offers when we are enjoying our time at the parks. When you stay at one of Universal’s premier resorts, your family will have the benefit of priority seating at most restaurants, allowing you to be a bit more flexible with your time and fun. Talk about VIP treatment! 

Are you wondering WHICH resorts you can stay at to take advantage of these awesome perks? Let’s take a peek into these three spectacular premier resorts at Universal Orlando resort.  Up first, is our family’s personal favorite, Hard Rock Resort! Our family absolutely loves the fun, rock ‘n’ roll vibe with the rock-inspired decor, live music, rock memorabilia, signature restaurants, and just incredible atmosphere. One really cool feature of this resort is the underwater music at the pool! Where else can you jam out to music under the water?! Our family not only loves the unique vibe of this resort, but our absolute favorite feature about staying at the Hard Rock resort is that it is so close to Universal CityWalk, and both Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios, that there’s even a designated walking path that takes you directly to the entrance! Staying at the Hard Rock Resort is sure to leave your family with an unforgettable experience. 

Next up is what I like to consider the most gorgeous resort on Universal Property, Loews Royal Pacific. If your family is looking for a tropical, South Pacific feel, this resort may be the perfect choice! With the tropical landscaping, lagoon-style pool, and water features – you might think that you are on a tropical island, and completely forget that you are at Universal Orlando resort! With the serene ambiance that Loews Royal Pacific offers, you will experience cultural immersion like never before.  

Last, but certainly not least, if your family would enjoy a luxurious, Italian-themed experience, with some amazing and AUTHENTIC Italian dining- Loews Portofino Bay at Universal is a top-notch option. You’ll find three themed pools here, beautiful landscaping and architecture, outdoor cafes, and even an onsite spa to enjoy. At Loews Portofino Bay, your family will experience the most relaxing, picturesque, and romantic ambiance in the seaside village of Portofino, Italy.

In a nutshell, staying at the premier resorts at Universal Orlando is the best way to be fully immersed in the magic and create unforgettable moments with your loved ones to last a lifetime! You won’t be disappointed, and you may even save some money.  Usually, Hard Rock is the most expensive of the three, but depending on the date and demand, sometimes, Hard Rock is the least expensive of the three. Straight Away Travel agents track these rates for you to get you the VERY best prices package as well. If prices drop (which they normally don’t) or if a new promotion is released (which can happen!), your SAT advisor can switch your package or resort to save you money. Don’t forget, we are free to use, correct, free to use!! Are you ready to experience luxury, excitement, and FUN?   Let’s go to Universal Studios!
