Loews® Royal Pacific Resort is one of the three deluxe hotels onsite at Universal Orlando Resort®. Staying on-site at a Universal Orlando® Resort includes Universal Express™ Pass, allowing you to by-pass regular lines at all participating rides and attractions except Harry Potter and The Forbidden Journey®. They are one of the best benefits of the hotel. They allow you to wait in a very short line to ride your favorite ride as many times as you want! It is UNLIMITED! You only have to show your card and get back into the line. It was awesome! Being able to ride favorite rides more than once is incredible!
When arriving at Loews® Royal Pacific the first thing you notice is the resort has an Island Paradise feel to it. Almost as if you had flown to Fiji, or Bali. The atmosphere was very friendly. The plants and exterior landscaping were beautiful. Inside the lobby was an atrium that led outside with a very large fountain. Located in the lobby is a Starbucks© coffee station.
The pool is a lagoon style with a sandy beach and was very nice looking. There are two gift shops, five restaurants, (Emeril’s Tchoup Chop® is one). It is a very large property that also offers meeting rooms.
The guest rooms are very nice. I loved the view, but was disappointed that there are no refrigerators or microwaves in the rooms. Both can be included for a fee of $15 per day each. WiFi is also an additional charge of $9.99 per day and parking is $18 per day. I was disappointed that these items were not included in the nightly cost of a deluxe hotel.
Some of the perks that are included at this deluxe resort:
1. One hour early entry at Islands of Adventure® to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter®, before the crowds.
2. Priority seating at restaurants.
3. Unlimited Universal Express™ Pass.
4. Shuttle and Water Taxi transportation to and from Universal City Walk Orlando®. Each hotel has its own Water Taxi. This makes the trip very quick back and forth. It is then just a short walk to either Universal’s Islands of Adventure® or Universal Studios Florida®.
5. Shopping packages sent from both parks to the INSIDE of your room~~loved this!
The service at this resort was impeccable. The front desk, Bell Services staff, room service, Concierge – all of the staff members were very friendly and efficient. I hope to stay again soon at this wonderful resort.
