The least expensive luxury option at Universal does an apt impression of the South Seas in the 1930s. It's more luxurious yet cheaper than the Disney Polynesian, with a lush pool area (sandy beach, winding garden paths, interactive water play area) and a sophisticated, wood-and-wicker look. The standard is high: very soft robes, cushy beds with fat pillows, and marble-top chests. It’s right over the road from Islands of Adventure; many rooms have a panorama of it. In any other city, the Royal Pacific might be everyone’s favorite resort. Here, though, its subtler charms get lost in the crowd.
