Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort enjoys a prime location, right on the doorstep of Universal’s Volcano Bay. This huge, retro-themed property provides affordable accommodation in the heart of Universal Orlando Resort. Plenty of family-orientated facilities await you, from an on-site bowling alley to two vast pools – complete with a lazy river and water slide. What’s more, Early Park Admission* is included to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ and Universal’s Volcano Bay.

Located in the Universal Orlando Resort, the hotel is conveniently placed to access all Universal Orlando theme parks. Universal’s Volcano Bay is less than 500 metres away and can be reached via a direct pathway, while Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal’s CityWalk are just one mile from the resort. You can reach Universal Studios Florida in one and a half miles. Save your energy for the theme parks by making use of the complimentary shuttle bus transportation. Orlando International Airport is 15 miles away.

Cabana Bay Beach Resort has been designed to resemble a 1950s and 60s Florida beach resort. Its mid-century design and stylish, retro interiors are bright and nostalgic, and rooms feature striking colour schemes of orange, mustard, turquoise and lime green – yet without being too overpowering. Padded headboards, abstract artwork and light wooden accents are nice touches. Standard room amenities include a flat-screen TV, mini-fridge and a Cuisinart coffee single pod brewer (suites come with a double pod brewer). The Standard Volcano Bay View Rooms offer great window views of Universal’s Volcano Bay and the Krakatau volcano. While suites provide more space for everyone, with a separate living area and a kitchenette. The Family suites have a split bathroom (with two sinks and a full-length mirror) which makes it easier for everyone to get ready at the same time.

After spending busy days in the theme parks, you can cool off in the hotel’s vast swimming pools. The Cabana Courtyard area features a large, zero-entry pool and a unique, dive tower-themed water slide. There’s also a poolside cabana, picnic areas, a fire pit and a children’s splash play area. Plus, you can rent chic private cabanas here which have personal TVs. The second pool area, known as the Lazy River Courtyard, features a quieter pool and a winding river for tubing (tubes available at a charge). A sandy beach section lies nearby and there’s a poolside grill with plenty of outdoor seating.

The ten-lane bowling alley (fees apply) stays open late into the evening, and there’s an on-site arcade offering family fun indoors. The modern fitness centre is well equipped with high-end exercise machines. 

Dining information

Bayliner Diner food court is ideal if you’re seeking a quick and easy breakfast, lunch or dinner. Find a selection of food stations, including a deli section where you can order fresh sandwiches or wraps, a pizza and pasta station, a burger station and an international stand which serves dishes inspired by worldwide cuisine. You can also order sweet treats at the dessert station, including frozen yoghurt with various toppings. For those on the go, there’s a small area providing snacks, sandwiches, salads, and drinks to take away.

The Galaxy Bowl Restaurant (located inside the bowling alley) and the poolside Hideaway Bar & Grill also serve classic American fare – such as made-to order sandwiches, pizzas, chicken wings and burgers. Atomic Tonic pool bar is another place to go for refreshments, whether you fancy a soft drink, wine, beer or a speciality cocktail. Be sure to try their signature mixers such as the Cabana Bay Colada or the eponymous Atomic Tonic (a fruity vodka cocktail). If you feel peckish, the bar menu here features lighter fare such as kebabs, wraps, sides and desserts. Otherwise, head indoors to the retro-themed Swizzle Lounge, or to the on-site Starbucks® for a coffee. Delizioso Pizza offers in-room delivery.
