Kayla, Kristen and Melissa became first time annual passholders at Universal Orlando Resort earlier this year. We decided to celebrate with a stay at Loews Royal Pacific Resort!
This resort has a beautiful, laid back atmosphere with South Pacific vibes. From the moment we set foot on the bridge, we felt like we were on vacation. From the amazing smell in the lobby to the sandy shores off the water, everything was tropical and relaxing.
The short walk and water taxi ride to the theme parks and CityWalk were so convenient. Either way, the parks were only 10-15 minutes away from the resort.
We started our morning with coffee and smoothies at Tuk Tuk Market, which serves Starbucks beverages and other prepared breakfast items. The Orchid Court Lounge, which serves up fresh made sushi in the evenings, has a stunning chandelier and fun modern flare. Jake's American Bar is open for lunch and dinner featuring craft beers, specialty cocktails and classic American fare.
The zero-entry swimming pool and it's accompanying sandy beach is a serene escape from the heat and the hustle of the parks. Swing over to the Bula Bar during your stay for a frosty island-themed beverage.
The most valuable part of our stay at Loews Royal Pacific Resort was the complimentary Universal Express Unlimited ride access, which is included for all resort guests. It was such a huge savings, both in dollars and in time! We would never visit the parks without it.
Early park admission, which is included for all guests staying on-site at Universal Orlando Resort, was also a huge perk. We had early access to Universal's Islands of Adventure during our stay so we were able to ride Hagrid's Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure before the park opened to the general public!
Here's a video tour of our room, a standard room with two queen beds. These accommodations are also available with one king bed or a view of the water, pool, etc.
We would highly recommend this resort to anyone considering a trip to Universal Orlando Resort!
