Are you Ready for Adventure? Well adventure awaits you at Universal’s Aventura Hotel! I had the pleasure of spending some time at this unique hotel and I cannot wait to fill you in on everything!
I will be talking about my stay and experiences during my last trip at Universal Orlando Resort . If your interested in learning about the rooms they offer, restaurants, and some extra special tips lets get started!
About the Hotel
Aventura hotel is Universal Orlando Resort's newest resort just opening in the summer of 2018. Aventura hotel is modern, stylish and sleek. With 17 floors Aventura Hotel towers all nearby hotels creating breathtaking views of the Orlando area. Each room creates a bright and positive vibe for all hotel guests with floor to ceiling windows! This tower hotel is just a hop, skip and a jump from Universal’s Cabana Bay Resort and Volcano Bay. It's actually a walking distance to the water park, which makes it a perfect choice for families who are planning to spend time there!
About the Rooms
When I walked into my room at Aventura Hotel I was mind blown! The room was a refreshing change to my average theme park hotel. I have never stayed in such an updated hotel with amazing amenities. Each hotel room is completely controlled by an Ipad. The Ipad controls SO MANY features in the room and is a great way to stay connected with the hotel. Some of the features you can control from the Ipad are the temperature, lights, television and alarms. You can also ask questions and speak to the front desk, order room service or call housekeeping for any of your needs! At the end of the night I enjoyed ordering room service from the Ipad and relaxing in bed while I caught fireworks from the window.. talk about magic!
There are ample outlets in reach of the bed for everyone's use. The bathroom had a nice counter space and mini shelves for all your belongings. The closet was large and definitely had enough space for two to three people to share. The room also came with Complimentary wireless internet access in each guest room and most common areas of the hotel, Coffee maker, Hairdryer, HVAC controls connected to Smart Room technology, In-room safe, Iron, ironing board and a Mini refrigerator. I was lucky enough to walk into my room to fresh fruit, Fuji bottled water and a greeting card from one of the managers of the hotel. I felt very lucky to be working with this team they made me feel so special!
Benefits to Staying at Aventura Hotel
What I really loved about this hotel is the feeling you get when stepping through the front doors. Right away I felt like I was at home and was greeted with friendly smiles. The hotel offers many great benefits to staying here such as including free transportation to Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure and CityWalk. This includes early park admission to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Universal's Volcano Bay one hour before the parks open! As mentioned earlier, it's also just a few minutes' walk to Volcano Bay. Head out the gate by the pool, and you'll be on your way. During your stay you also have resort-wide charging privileges!
The hotel has two amazing places to stop and grab some food. The first is Urban Pantry which is on the main floor of the hotel. Here they serve breakfast lunch and dinner. The menu offers a variety of options like sushi, burgers, pizza and roast stations. The other restaurant is called Bar 17 Bistro which is on the 17th floor of Aventura Hotel. Offering unique dishes as well as classic fare, Bar 17 Bistro also features cocktails designed to pair with the urban international flavors featured on the menu. There drinks were spectacular I tried the 'Volcano View Suntory' and I highly recommend it!
Next time I would try the Complex Frozen drinks, someone next to me ordered them and they looked delicious!
I cant forget about Starbucks, just what you need when your heading out the door for early morning adventures! Starbucks is also located in the main lobby next to the pool and Urban Pantry.
Aventura’s Hotel also includes a zero- entry pool that is on the main floor of the hotel. Surrounding the pool you will find a fire pit, bar and splash pad accompanied by lounge chairs and tables for your convenience. The hotel also includes a fitness center and virtual reality game room. You will find a ton of things to do here if you decide to skip the parks for a day and lay low. What I also LOVE they offer a kids’ clubs at most on site hotels so parents can spend a night out to themselves!
Transportation is made easy if your looking to get to either of Universal theme parks or City Walk with buses that will take you to and from with no extra charge! The bus system has an easy to find pick up and drop off location and runs about every 20 minutes. The buses will drop you off right outside of city walk, its so easy and so fast!
Would I recommend Aventura Hotel?
Yes! I Absolutely would. It was nice to take a break from the average hotels that I had been using over and over again for my trips to Orlando. Aventura Hotel made me feel so special from the minute I walked in. The managers and team members were resourceful and knowledgeable. It had been a few years since staying at a Universal Resort and things have certainly changed. I cannot wait to book my next stay at a Universal Orlando Resort.
A huge thank you for Universal Orlando Resorts and Hotels for hosting me and my family!
