So I shared the other day how my family and I got to take advantage of the partnership between Universal Orlando Resort and Royal Caribbean International by visiting both places. Our first stop was the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando Resort which we stayed at for two nights.  The Loews Portofino Bay Hotel is seriously amazing and probably one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed at. From its beautiful exterior that you can’t help but want to walk around and explore to its beach-like pool, my kids were in love.

The first day we were there we explored the resort and swam. What is super nice is that the hotel is one of the four hotels right there at Universal Orlando Resort so we were able to take a free water taxi to explore Universal Studios Florida® and Universal’s Islands of Adventure® parks.

The first night we at dinner at VIVO Italian Kitchen at Universal CityWalk. Universal CityWalk is an amazing downtown-like area where you can just walk around and enjoy yourself. There are tons of great restaurants, shopping and even free live entertainment.

We danced a little, well the kids danced, and then we headed back to the Loews Portofino Bay for more swimming before calling it a night. The next day we were going to tackle both Universal Studios Florida® and Universal’s Islands of Adventure®!
