review | cabana bay beach resort

the hotel at universal studios’ cabana bay beach resort is perfect for anyone who wants a fun place to stay for a weekend getaway. thanks to it’s location, it is also a very convenient place to crash after a long day at universal studios. whatever the reason, if you’re into retro decor like i am, i bet you won’t want to leave.

from bowling to relaxing in the lazy river, families, couples, friends -really anyone at any age- will find something to love here. i personally stayed here because it was within walking distance to universal studios. though it was the lazy river that reeled me in, the retro vibes will keep me going back.
