As frequent travelers to Orlando and past locals, we do have some favorite hotels in O-Town. Our favorite Orlando hotel is Cabana Bay Beach Resort. We have stayed at this hotel 6 different times, just in 2017.
Cabana Bay Beach Resort is located at Universal Orlando Resort and we consider it a hidden gem. Cabana Bay features so many amazing resort amenities; including a lazy river, waterslide, splash park, movies under the stars, and a bowling alley inside the resort. This is such an incredible resort.
We know our fans are always asking us about this resort, so we thought we would share a little bit more about this resort…including the best and worst of this resort.
Cabana Bay Beach Resort Rooms
Best of Cabana Bay Beach Resort Rooms
AHHHH…Comfortable Beds: The Standard Rooms and Suites at Cabana Bay Beach Resort feature (2) Queen Beds. Since this resort is fairly new, the beds are newer and they are sooooo comfortable. We all sleep soundly in these beds. They are super comfy for a hotel bed. This resort does not have the option of King Beds, only Queen Beds; so keep that in mind. For the Family Suites, they also have a pull out sofa bed. The sofa bed is just as comfortable.
Floor to Ceiling Windows Create a Spectacular View: In the towers at Cabana Bay, you can get a spectacular view. The rooms feature floor to ceiling windows. There is not a balcony, but you get this incredible view. Your room may overlook the pool, International Drive, or even Volcano Bay. When you check in, request a higher floor. The higher floors have a much better view. This is always one of my favorite parts of the rooms at Cabana Bay Beach Resort. This is a one of a kind view!
Fun Wake Up Calls: Do you want Transformers or even Blue Man Group to wake you up in the morning? That is the epic wake up call. You can schedule (right from your phone) a wake up call from one of many fun Universal Orlando characters. This is fun for the whole family.

Old School Amenities: This resort is themed after the old motels in the 50’s and 60’s. These were the motels where you mom and dad would drive up. They would hop out to check in and then drive to your room. The amenities in the room continue this theming. You will find an old school wind up clock. My favorite room amenities is the VO5 shampoo and conditioner and ZEST soap. These are the fun products we grew up using at home.
Of course, you may have to explain what VO5 and ZEST is to the kiddos; but it is a lot of fun.
The Price: The price of the Standard Rooms and Family Suites at Cabana Bay Beach Resort are a huge plus for mom and dad. This resort is considered a value resort in pricing. As a newer resort with a ton of room and resort amenities, the price always surprises me. Cabana Bay Beach Resort can certainly charge a lot more, but they do keep it at a value price. I LOVE that about this resort!
Worst of Cabana Bay Beach Resort Rooms
Is that a Drill or a Power Saw?: Most of the time, you will not hear a peep from the neighbors at this resort. However, last time we heard a ton of construction noises from upstairs. They were working on tile in the upstairs bathroom. The noise vibrated through out entire room. We were not warned about the construction, so this was a little bit of a disappointment. At least the noise ended by dinner time.
Overall, we love the rooms at this resort. You can check out our recent visit to Cabana Bay Beach Resort on YouTube.
