Luxurious Italian Bay Town Resort

Visit an Italian Bay style town at one of the beautiful Universal Resort locations when you visit Loews Portofino Bay Hotel in Orlando Florida. Even though this resort is the furthest away from the Universal Theme Parks, it is great if you want to have water taxi or other transportation provided for you but would like the ability to be away from everything that Universal offers if you would like. This is something to consider if you have small children, especially in strollers, that you will travel back and forth to the parks. The grounds are absolutely stunning and you will feel like you are walking around a Mediterranean town built around one of the beautiful bay’s in Italy.

Rooms & Suites at the Portofino Bay

There are many different luxury accommodations to choose from with many different views of the resort. Choose from one of 750 guest rooms with Double Queen beds or step up to a Deluxe room that gives you a little more elegant surrounding as well as more space. If you really want to have additional space, you might want to consider one of the 45 suites available at the property. Suites are available in sizes starting at 1 Bedroom, 450 square feet all the way up to the Presidente Suite that boasts a full 2,725 square feet. No matter what the size of your party, you will find something perfect to fit your needs.

Loews Portofino Bay Resort Reviews


Time and time again you will see reviews that mention how "comfortable, clean and professional" the Hotel and Staff are at the Loews Portofino Resort. The European style is very welcoming and peaceful. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the large family pool and could not get enough of the Water Slide. Seating was nice around the pool and the white sand was a nice touch. This is a perfect place to take pictures and feel like you are in another country.

The food was good but it was very pricey so be ready to spend some additional money if you eat on the property. Be sure you also add in the extra charges for parking. Both the self parking and valet cost extra. There were a few guests who complained about how large the resort was and there was a lot of walking to get around (most visitors found this to be a positive)

Pool and Water Slide

You will want to check out the pool areas in the resort after you check in. In fact, if you have shown the kids the pictures from the pool area, they might not even want to take the time to stop by the room first to unpack. This being said, you might want to keep this part a surprise. There are 3 large pools on the property and the main pool has a large water slide built like an old aqueduct that is something that you would expect to see at the Universal Islands of Adventure Theme Park.

Fun things to do

There is so much more to experience while staying at this resort. You can enjoy a night out on the town and take advantage of the Loews Loves Kids program. Take the kids to the arcade, enjoy a family night out at the dive-in movies or just take in a nice jog or walk around the beauty of this property. Whatever your reason for vacationing at the Loews Portofino Bay Resort, there is something for everyone in the family to enjoy.
