Universal Orlando Resort is the setting for our photographic post today on one of their Prime Value resorts, the Cabana Bay Beach Resort. Last year I was privileged to be able to visit the resort and spend a couple of nights there, and I really liked it. In today’s post, I’m going to share with you a few of the photos I took while at the resort, with the hope being that I convey to you why you should consider it for your next trip to Universal.
Cabana Bay Beach Resort is a large resort, comprising 2,200 rooms of various styles. However, for a 2,200 room resort, Cabana Bay doesn’t feel that large. Themed after the classic Florida resorts of the 1950s and 60s, the rooms feature classic styling that reminds you of that time period. One would think that it would look dated and kind of tacky, but to me, it worked perfectly and really did enhance the theming of the resort, rather than detract from it.
One nice feature to the room I stayed in is that they had a split bathroom. A common sink area in the middle of the room for washing your hands and brushing your teeth, etc., with the toilet in it’s own room to the left, and tub/shower to the right. That’s a nice feature for me because it allows you to split up who is where for getting ready for the day.
The lobby features a nice palm tree centerpiece, and within the lobby, there’s a lot going on! In addition to your normal check-in locations, you’ve got bell services for checking your luggage, a gift shop, the Swizzle Lounge, along with plenty of seating to just relax for a spell.
Cabana Bay Beach Resort features four main buildings as well as two towers over on the Volcano Bay side of the resort. The nice thing is that the resort has it’s own private walkway to Volcano Bay Water Park, and only guests of Cabana Bay can use that entrance to the park.
Cabana Bay has several buildings for rooms, as you would imagine, including the Castaway, Thunderbird, Starlight, the Americana, and the Continental buildings. The Americana and the Continental feature the towers.
This is just a brief look at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort. I really enjoyed my stay here, and it whet my whistle to take my family here for a true Universal vacation.
