Experience La Dolce Vita—The Sweet Life

At Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando Resort™, fun gets an Italian accent—and everyone gets to have an unforgettable time. Since the property is located bayside, right on the grounds of Universal Orlando™, the thrills couldn’t be any closer. Nestled along the water, and with details like cobblestone streets and towering Italian cypress trees just like the seaside town of Portofino, Italy, you’ll swear you’re actually in Europe. But the magic doesn’t stop there. Guests of the Italian-themed hotel receive exclusive theme park benefits that will make your time at Universal Orlando even sweeter, or as the Italians say, dolce. After hours of excitement at the parks, come back to the hotel and take the time to sip an espresso or enjoy a creamy gelato in our Harbor Piazza as you listen to live music. It’s the perfect way to end the day!
