Hard Rock Heaven

Dalgety Bay, United Kingdom

Family stayed here after a week in Animal Kingdom Lodge and have to say it matched it for wow factor and location. Excellent stay here, very close to the Universal parks, comfortable rooms and first rate staff and facilities. Very relaxed and informal atmosphere which helps the experience, the whole family loved staying here.

Alternative to buying Universal express passes separately

Chicago, Illinois

Hard Rock is what it needed to be for us - alternative to paying for express passes for family of 5. The hotel is expensive but still cheaper than paying for those passes separately. It is convenient as it is a short walk to the Universal Studios side or you can take the water taxi. Room was quite small for us, bathroom smelled musty and the lighting was awful but staff was excellent. My son’s birthday was celebrated from the time we checked in. He received a Hard Rock Birthday pin for his lanyard and room service delivered a piece of birthday cake. He also redeemed a birthday coupon for an awesome sundae out last night. Bell services helped when they were needed. Winnie was great at Tetris when it came time to pack all our bags in rental SUV at checkout when we moved to another resort for the rest of our trip. Pool entertainment staff was awesome and had everybody dancing by and in the pool. Our friends stayed on club level and that might be a better alternative for us if the price is right next time.
