My family and I love the Cabana Bay Beach Resort, especially because of the family suites options. It gives us more room to spread out as a family and we can still watch television and relax once the girls are asleep.

The on-site dining options are great (hello, Icees!), two pools and a lazy river, an on-site bowling alley a full-service Starbucks in the lobby and the overall retro theme make Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort one of my favorite places to stay.
