U can walk or take the water taxi, itís close to studios which is handy, out of the three premier hotels itís my least favourite, itís by far the nosiest of the three music around the pool is very loud til quite late into the night and Iím not a fan of the rooms, but staff are lovely. Portofino and royal Pacific are tranquil paradises

Very much with Orlando guy on this. For me, Royal Pacific every time. A place of relaxation after a busy day in the parks. I have not stayed in Portofino.

All 3 are an easy walk or water taxi to the theme parks.

Thank you all, we stayed at Royal Pacific in December 2019 & loved it - but DH thinks he might like to try this one when we go
In august...somewhere different

we couldnít even think where it was but now we realise you literally turn left out of universal, we always seem to turn right towards city walk every time !

Iíll research it some more... thanks again xx

Stayed at PFB once 8 years ago and wasn't overly impressed. Love the HRH though and have stayed there many times. We always have a pool view room and have never noticed any noise in the room and we really like the general feel of the place.

We love Hard Rock for its location, the walk to studios is so easy and takes 5-7 mins! You can get the water taxi aswell. But we love the ambiance of Royal Pacific, itís much more relaxing! We go for whatever one is cheaper for our dates!

We stayed at HRH in 2012 for two nights to get the express passes and we loved it. The vibe is very Ďusí as we are big rock music fans so really feel in our element there. I donít remember thinking it was noisy but I canít remember whether our room was pool side or not. We have just booked a club level room for our first week next August and we are very excited to be returning.

We stayed Garden Room and it was very quiet indeed.

Loved the pool at night with the lighting, slide, bar, music and hacienda type architecture. Very cool.

If youíve stayed at RPR already then go for HRH. Weíve stayed at both in the last few years and they are both great. HRH is a bit closer if walking but the ambiance of RPR is much nicer IMO. We would be happy to stay in either and have chosen RPR club for august as I fully intend on relaxing around the pool. I did find club at RPR a nicer experience too, but they are both lovely.
