Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando

Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando is a resort hotel and spa located at Universal Orlando Resort in Florida. Added as part of a major resort expansion of Universal Studios Florida in 1999, it was built along with Universal's Islands of Adventure and CityWalk to turn the single theme park into a multi-day, resort destination. The resort is touted as Universal Orlando’s flagship resort and was the first hotel on Universal Orlando property. It was designed to offer the ambiance of an Italian seaside village with many of the guest rooms overlooking the resort’s own lake, Portofino Bay. Loews Hotels is the owner and operator of this resort, as with Portofino Bay’s sister resorts, Hard Rock Hotel and Loews Royal Pacific Resort.

the awesome beach pool at Portofino Bay hotel!

This hotel is located on the property of the Universal Orlando Resort. It is probably the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed in! Like its sister hotel, the Royal Pacific Resort, it offers transportation by water taxi to the theme parks and also gives its guests express passes that allow them to take the express lines on almost all attractions an unlimited number of times from the day you check-in until the time the parks close on the day you check-out. There are only a few rides that these passes cannot be used on because they do not have express lines: Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and Pteradon Flyers (in Jurassic Park). This hotel also has two pools. One of them is called the beach pool. This is because the outer edge of the pool is surrounded by white, powdery sand. The hotel itself is Italian-themed. The architecture has an Italian façade that is designed to make you feel as though you are actually in Italy. It has a large courtyard area that borders the lagoon that the water taxi drives on. Around the courtyard are many different restaurants including a pizza and sub place. Although it is on the expensive side, it is a great hotel, and if you are planning to stay onsite, I would recommend it!
