Universal's Aventura Hotel 

Crisp simplicity and complete convenience

If you know you’ll be spending more time out of the hotel than in but still want your room to be impressively modern and conveniently close to the action, Universal’s Aventura Resort is a perfect option.

Yes, there’s a great pool and a couple of restaurants here. But this hotel doesn’t have quite as many facilities as other nearby. And for many visiting Orlando, that’s just fine – there’s so much to do out and about. When you do return, you can walk back here from the Universal Orlando parks (or catch a complimentary shuttle bus) and settle into a chic, well-thought-out guest room that feels fresh and modern.

Why we love Universal's Aventura Hotel

  • The Kids’ Suites are excellent – children get proper beds to sleep in (rather than a sofa bed), although if you’re a family of five, a third child can take advantage of a pull-out option, too.

  • There’s a pool and splash zone, but the watery thrills of Universal’s Volcano Bay are just a five-minute walk away.

  • Find a seat in the rooftop bar and restaurant, order some snacks, and watch the theme parks light up at night.

  • You’ll get Early Park Admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter up to one hour before the parks open with a valid ticket.

There’s an emphasis on convenience here. Your main go-to is Urban Pantry, a counter service set up that’s ideal when you’ve got places to be. For something more relaxing at the end of the day, head skywards to Bar 17 Bistro for bar food. But remember you’ve got ample options at Universal CityWalk, which you can walk to from the hotel.

Urban Pantry
A food hall with four stations where you order freshly prepared wok dishes, burgers, pizzas, or roasts. Open all day for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in between.

Bar 17 Bistro
A rooftop bar and restaurant open from late afternoon for steamed bao buns and bar bites alongside a full drinks menu.

The modern lobby bar is a sociable place for a pre-dinner drink.

Bar Sol
The pool bar serves frozen drinks alongside a dazzling choice of cocktails, wine, and beer.

Pick up coffee and snacks in the lobby to take for the walk over to the Universal theme parks.

What's included

Room Only

There’s a fitness centre with cardio equipment and weights.

The pool has plenty of sun loungers, and there’s a splashzone with water jets, too.

This is an easy option for families looking for a simple and stylish place to stay that’s handy for the Universal parks but without superfluous frills. The Kids’ Suites are worth considering for extra space and separate sleeping quarters. Parents of little ones will appreciate the separate bath and shower.
