I stayed at this resort in May of 2012, and had a marvelous time. The comments others have made about a relaxing vacation are an understatement. From the moment you enter the resort, you literally never have to think of the outside world again, what with the water taxis which run right to CityWalk, or the convenient walking paths, this resort has it all. We opted to stay on the concierge level, and while it has an added expense, my family felt it was worth it because of the meals provided all day. From continental breakfast in the morning to a hot entree and free spirits each night, we found a variety of options to keep our palates happy (e.g. the Caribbean Jerk Tilapia the first night was wonderful!). This also allowed free access to the fitness center, which has a hidden treasure: a whirlpool closed off only to fitness center guests. Express pass and WWOHP early access were just an icing on the cake. It was overall a wonderful experience, and I would highly recommend not only a stay here, but on the concierge level as well. If you want a hectic free, relaxing vacation which you plan your way, then Universal might be the place for you.
