If you are going to spend your vacation enjoying the Universal Theme Parks in Orlando Florida, you might as well look at staying in one of the Universal Resorts. The Loews Portofino Bay Hotel Video shows how it is one of the resorts that you will want to consider. This beautiful Italian themed resort will make you feel as if you are staying in a village on the Mediterranean. The gardens are spectacular as you walk around the property and all of the buildings have an architecture that is reminiscent of Italy.
All of the accommodations carry this theme throughout with luxurious rooms and marble like features to enhance the feeling that you might be in Rome. There are many different types of rooms to choose from at this resort. If you are staying on a tight budget, you might look at the standard double queen or king but if you are looking to spread out and splurge a little, you might want to step up to one of the many suites that they have at this location. There are only 45 suites at the time of this writing so you will want to book these early as they sell out quick
Enjoy the 3 large pools on the property with your entire family. Two of the pools are more quiet without any water fun features but the largest pool on the property has everything that your kids will be looking for. It will be hard to pull them away from the fun that they will have on the Roman Aqueduct Style Twisting Water Slide and the younger ones will have a blast splishing and splashing in the Zero-Entry kiddie section of the pool. This area also has multiple water fountains that surprise you with every watery upward spurt that they make. There are also Cabanas at the 2 larger pools if you are interested in being pampered throughout the day. These do have a daily fee associated with them but you are on vacation and it is worth trying for one of the days you are staying.
There are multiple restaurants on the property but you also have free access to the transportation system put in place to get you back and forth to the parks. City Walk is also one of the Universal destinations and if you run out of places to eat on the property, there are a multitude of places to eat in City Walk.
Take a look at some of the videos and see what the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel has to offer.
