"Best hotel at Universal - period!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 18, 2018 NEW
As soon as we checked in to the hotel - the Portofino made sure that this was a trip that she will always remember. The hotel was clean and comfortable and decorated beautifully for Christmas. The express passes for the park and the water taxis made the park experience fun and convenient. The pool was beautiful and the pool-side service was amazing. The rooms were beautiful and housekeeping was spot on! We had a club room - which I would definitely purchase again. We loved the club lounge with the food/snacks available throughout the day. Only suggestion would be to add more options for the lunchtime period. And last but not least - one particular staff member made our trip so memorable. Austin was so kind and went out of his way to make sure that our trip was special.

We felt like we were in Italy! What a wonderful experience staying at the Portofino. The whole experience was fantastic from the friendly staff, cleanliness of the room/ground, to the ease of coming and going to and from the parks. Wish we could have stayed longer!

"Worth Staying Here If You Can"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 17, 2018 NEW
We spend most of the trip at a less-expensive hotel so that we can splurge and stay at the Portofino Bay Hotel while we're planning on visiting Universal Orlando theme park. It's lovely, with water taxis to the theme parks and CityWalk, and during the holidays, big, beautiful Christmas trees, lights, and eve opera singers in the plaza. And your room key is your fast pass, a far superior system to that used by Walt Disney World. We were able to enjoy the theme parks, then go back to our hotel for a relaxing evening.

"Great hotel!"

We had a great time staying here! The express passes are worth thier wait in gold! The hotel is lovely and all staff we encountered were lovely and made us feel welcome. The water taxis to take us to and from park were wonderful and it only took a couple minutes each time. Most of the time we just walked on with no wait!I am very happy we got a club room. We asked to have a room nearby and got one! Which is great after having walked 8 hours each day not to have to go walk around a huge hotel for a snack and waters. We cant wait to come back!
