Universal Orlando is a hopping place these days. With the addition of Volcano Bay, several new hotels in the last few years, and a guest friendly layout, Universal Orlando is becoming a more popular vacation spot for families. Mine included! In fact, we are making a trip to Universal Orlando this summer, and we are so excited! When planning your Universal Orlando trip, your hotel options are becoming broader and broader. Gone are the days of just three onsite hotels, or staying off site. Now, Universal has expanded their hotel offerings, including Universal’s Aventura Hotel, and today I am going to share Five Reasons Your Family will Love this Universal Orlando Resort!
Reason #1: Location! As with all the Universal hotels, you can walk to all of the parks. That is one thing I love about Universal Orlando….it is a completely walkable property! BUT, Aventura is situated right outside of Volcano Bay! So the panoramic views from your room are striking and beautiful! There is a walking path to Volcano Bay….you can be there in about 5 minutes! Regardless, your room will have a view of one of the three amazing Universal Orlando theme parks! Plus as an onsite guest, you can use your Universal Orlando tickets, to gain early entry into the parks….making a close location ideal!
The location is ideal, as well, to Loews Sapphire Falls Resort and Cabana Bay Beach Resort. Why is this important? Because at Universal Orlando, you can pool hop! So even guests at the Aventura Hotel can walk over to Sapphire Falls and enjoy the pool. This gives your family lots of good options for afternoon breaks and evening entertainment when you return from the parks.
Reason #2: Universal’s Aventura Hotel is high tech. I think this is one aspect that makes it great for families with older children. Each room is equipped with a tablet. From the tablet, you can order room service, sign into your Netflix account, request more towels, change the room temperature….so fun! I know for certain that my teenagers would LOVE this feature. Aventura also has a VR experience, right at the hotel! Games range from Fruit Ninja, Merry Snowballs, and more! In fact, they change the games frequently, so you can visit multiple times during your stay and not get bored. Again, this is a huge factor when traveling with kids ~particularly teenagers. I love having options at our resort for my kids to enjoy while we take a break from the parks or wait out a Florida thunderstorm.
Reason #3: Family Friendly accommodations at a great rate. As a family of 5, we are always looking for a great hotel option that gives us plenty of space…without breaking our budget. Aventura is considered a Prime Value Hotel. This means that it does not participate in Express Pass, but the low nightly rates make it a fantastic option for families who want amazing, up to date accommodations without going over their vacation budget. They offer 575 square foot family suites, designed for plenty of sleeping space and comfort for everyone. As a mom of teenagers, this is SO important to me when choosing our family’s hotel options. The family suite features twin beds in a separate area for the kids, which is fantastic when your kids need their own sleeping surfaces.
Reason #4: The food offerings are kid friendly. Aventura does not have a table service location onsite. However, the food court area couldn’t be more family friendly. They offer sushi, seafood, poke, burgers, pizzas…a little bit of everything! Kids love going from station to station to check out their options and make their own choices. Plus, for the teenagers in the group, there is an onsite Starbucks!
Reason #5: The theming is slick and simple. I think this makes it a fantastic option for families with older kids, especially. Or, a family like ours that needs to please children of a broad age range :). The decor is so calming, and not in your face theme park. That is something my teenagers appreciate about our resort choices when we travel. While they love the excitement and theming of the Universal parks, at the end of a park day or during our afternoon breaks, they appreciate simplicity and relaxation.
Universal’s Aventura Hotel is a great option for anyone who wants amazing views, unique dining, and convenient theme park access. With three amazing Universal parks to enjoy, it puts you in a great location to all of them, while also providing a retreat for your family to relax on your Universal Orlando vacation. Will you be booking Universal’s Aventura Hotel on your next visit?
