universal hotels for one night

Will we be disapointed if we book RPR? HRH is 70 euro more for one night. We always stay at HRH and love the theme, it's part of the experience. We hit the park very early in the morning, come back to HRH for the afternoon and go for a walk around CitiWalk in the evening. Next park the morning after.

It's substantial difference but I wonder if we will be disappointed if we stay at RPR.

Also, club level at HRH is not much more expensive. Considering how little we will be around, I guess not worth it for one night?

Weve stayed in both and liked RPR just as much (if not a little more) than HRH. Probably come down to budget but I wouldnt have any hesitation staying at RPR again.

Much prefer the pool at RPR - deep and warm and swimmable. We use the water taxis to get to-and-fro anyhow, so no difference on distance etc for us. Cheapest wins if only for one night.

RPR felt longer, but have only done both of them once - to get there really early when there are not so many water taxis.

Felt the walk was similar, but I think HRH was the nicer walker. Not enough for us to spend more money on though.

Having done all 3 of the Universal hotels with express passes HRH is our least favourite - although we've not been for a good many years, opted for PBH or RPR instead. I don't think you'd be disappointed with RPR. It's a lovely resort and Jake's restaurant is a bit of a hidden gem IMO.
