Universal's Loews Portofino Bay Hotel 

Loews Portofino Bay Hotel is a serene and romantic refuge from the frenzy of the theme parks. Awash with cobblestones, cafés and old-world charm, it transports families, friends and couples away from Orlando and into the Italian seafront village of Portofino.

Everything is styled to resemble the coastal village of Portofino here, and it’s a startlingly-accurate replica, considering it’s just minutes from the roar of the theme parks. This tranquil Mediterranean-style complex is a world in itself, though. Boats bob on the harbour, people mingle on the piazza, and cobblestone pathways invite exploration. Three pools offer something for every mood, from the busy beach-fringed pool, with a waterslide and splash pad for kids, to the tranquil Hillside Pool which is ideal for quiet and relaxation. Guest rooms and suites follow the resort’s careful theme, with marble accents and custom furnishings from Italy adding a touch of elegance. The only exception to this are the two-bedroom Kids Suites which feature a separate Minion-themed bedroom the little ones will be thrilled with! No visit to ‘Italy’ would be complete without gelato, espresso, pasta and pizza, so guests will find all sorts of restaurants, shops and cafés around the village to cater to their whims.
