Endless summer surf side is finished and not a building site, however the new hotel next door which is endless summer Dockside is not due for completion until April 2020.

We are staying at surf side in May 2020 and really looking forward to it, there is a Facebook group called endless summer fans, which gives up to date reporting by people staying there, mostly brits. Some people report noise from other rooms and suggest a high floor, so I have just put a request in for that.

For the price it looks great, but we did a split stay with 8 nights at Aventura just in case we dont love it.

We stayed last week in a 2 bed and really liked it. It was much better than I thought it would be. Rooms are really nice, and perfect for families. Great location on idrive and very frequent buses to universal, never waited for a bus. The pool was great for our kids as it is not deep, plenty of seating. Staff all helpful & friendly. Food is ok nothing special, overpriced but still cheaper than similar food in the parks and at the other universal hotels.

Hiya Rachv38,
If you go to YouTube and look for The Despicable Three they have just come back from Endless Summer and do a couple of videos/reviews about it so you will get a rough idea of what it is like. From memory they were not too impressed with the food options and suggested just hitting I-Drive instead

Thanks did Disney this year for 3 weeks so thought we'd try universal but may end up doing Disney again too. As we have a suite thought we'd have breakfast in room and then make sandwiches up etc for parks and then get a meal later on. Would you say $100 a day will be ok for main meal for 4 of us? We've paid 4900 Flying from Doncaster which I thought was a good price for Aug but others seem to think it's too much. I'm just pleased to be going back. Are the main shops not far away? Sorry for all questions.

No problem at all.
Endless Summer is where the old Wet n Wild used to be so you are at the top end of I Drive. There are a number of restaurants within a 5 minute walk or so. If you have hired a car then the world is your oyster. The I drive Outlets are just up the road as well. There is a Walmart on Turkey Lake Road which is a 10 minute drive away.
For the cost of a meal out for four, depending on where you go, $100 should be fine as most main courses seem to retail between $15-$20 on average.
And finally if you are happy with the price you paid for the holiday do not let anyone persuade you otherwise. For what its worth, I think a package holiday to Orlando in the school holidays from a regional airport for 4900 seems reasonable to me.
Look forward to it and enjoy the planning!
