Sapphire Falls Resort at Universal Orlando
Review
Loews Sapphire Falls Resort is a preferred hotel offering moderately priced accommodations within boat and walking distance of Universal Studios Florida & Islands of Adventure theme parks.
Sapphire Falls does not present itself as a romanticized version of an island resort, which is what you might find at a couple different Walt Disney World hotels.
Sapphire Fall is neither a luxurious hotel nor is it a lavishly-themed resort.
The lobby at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort is where you’ll find the front desk (obviously), concierge, rental car kiosk, vacation planning desk, gift shop, and more.
The latter is arguably one of the best bars in all of Universal Orlando; it has a ton of personality, nice atmosphere, and good views.
I personally find the Garden Walk to the parks to be lovely and something of a hidden gem, and it’s only about a 15 minute walk from Sapphire Falls.
Loews Sapphire Falls Resort is comparable to Caribbean Beach in a few ways.
Ultimately, I end up being slightly torn on Loews Sapphire Falls Resort.
It ends up being one of my favorite hotels at Universal Orlando, not because there’s anything exceptional about it, but because it has minimal weaknesses.
