Must stay for Universal vacation

We had a great, albeit brief stay at this hotel. Hotel was very upscale but felt kid and family friendly. Pool area was very nice with huge pool, 2 hot tubs, splash area, and movies poolside at night. Walk to the park was about 10 minutes and faster than boat. The free express passes probably saved us a few hours of waiting over our two days in the parks. Would definitely stay here again if going to Universal. Only two minor gripes: The pillows were very lumpy and it cost $20 a day to park there. For $250 a night, parking should be included. Other than that, great stay.

We loved our stay at Royal Pacific! The staff was extremely friendly, prompt and helpful. A short walk or boat taxi to the Universal parks, great location. Our daughters loved the pool, no waterslide though. Would definitely stay again!

Great location, average hotel

You will stay here if you are going to the Universal parks, want to be close and not waste any time once you wake up, want to get the free Express passes and want to stay in a decent hotel. This is what you are paying for. So from this perspective, great value. But beyond that, this is a below average hotel. The room was dated (especially the bathroom), cramped, no balcony and not especially clean. All ice makers were broken at the time of my visit and remained broken for the duration of my stay. The hotel's convenience store sells drinks at the same price as the park...really? I have stayed at many hotels, ranging from 1 to 5 stars, in the US and overseas. Based on the room and amenities, this is a 2.5 star at best. But based on the purpose of staying there, it is the best value out of all the Universal hotels.

Great Stay

If visiting Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure there is no better location. This hotel is an even easier walk to parks than Hard Rock. It is pricey, but the express pass and early entry makes it worth while if visiting during a busy time!

Horror Nights Vacation

The hotel was nice. Had a lush tropical feel to it. Nice size rooms and a decent shower. The pillows sucked but other than that it was pretty much what you would expect from a nice hotel. The location is great for the Studios which are a convenient boat ride away that runs very often. We never waited long for the boat. Wi-fi was complimentary but slow. They had water in the room for $7.00 a bottle but did have a Keurig for coffee. So all depends on what is important to you. I was happy with my stay. I have no comments on the staff because I barely interacted with any other than checking in.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Universal opens earlier than an hour early for hotel guest. If you are going to Halloween horror nights you can stay in the park and get to the haunted houses earlier than the public and avoid the metal detectors at the main gate. This is a big plus because it get's packed. Thursday was worse than Friday for lines due to the cheaper Express Pass. They let the entire express line go before anyone buying an average ticket so if you want to get it all in I would advise either a Frequent Fear ticket or Fast Pass. (you get one for the regular park staying onsite but not for HHN.

Just Okay

We were the only ones in line to check in when arriving at 8pm and even with many employees the process to check in was slow. Got to our room on the bottom floor and before even putting our luggage down we found a lizard in the room. My son tried to catch it but it climbed the chair and disappeared into the cushions. Called front desk and they said they would send someone to catch it. Waited over 20 minutes and no one came. Went to front desk and asked for a new room. Was told there were no more rooms available. After about 30 minutes they found a room. Too much time was wasted dealing with slow unhelpful hotel staff. Rooms okay but seemed to be a bit run down. No comparison to the moderate Disney resorts where the staff is outstanding and rooms are well kept.

Great week!

We really enjoyed being so close to the parks and to Citywalk. The early hour at Universal and the express pass were great perks. The resort is clean and nice, with a great pool area. We found it to be a relaxing place without our kids, but it would be a great place to bring the family too. There are 3 on site restaurants which was nice on rainy days. I really can't think of any down sides to Royal Pacific. We would love to go back!

Enjoyable stay

We had an enjoyable stay at the Royal Pacific. The staff was very friendly and the grounds were well kept. We walked to the parks most of the time but the boat shuttle was nice to have after a long day. Comparing this to our stay at the Hard Rock last year, it was much more enjoyable. Although the Hard Rock was closer, we did not experience any of the loud and noisy guests that the Hard Rock seems to attract and that was worth the extra steps. The rooms are outdated but we didn't spend much in them.

HHN opening weekend getaway

I booked the Royal Pacific Resort through a discount promo code I found. I wanted to be completely immersed in Universal theming for my first HHN experience. Overall, the hotel was nice. They assigned me a room on the main (3rd) floor close to everything. The walls were thin and I could hear my neighbors' running water. The water pressure was good and the room was clean enough. I has some trouble with the door lock and had to get my card key replaced twice. The check-in clerk placed a $ 200.00 hold on my credit card, but didn't give me a key to the mini-bar until I went back to the desk and asked for one. The walk from the resort to the parks was relaxing and the water taxis were wonderful at the end of a long day. I would consider staying at RPR again if I could find a better deal than what I paid this time. The free Express Pass provided to deluxe resort guests was the best part of my stay.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

Take advantage of the water taxis. The ride is short and the boat captain completes your bag check. This is the most efficient way to travel to and from the parks.

Good stay overall

Hotel is beautiful, Rooms are average. Annoying that they will not allow you to check in before 4pm no matter what. That is really my only complaint, but it set the tone for our first of three nights at the hotel.
