Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando Review

The charm and romance of Portofino, Italy—destination of Europe's rich and famous—are conjured up at this lovely luxury resort, where part of the fun is exploring the waterfront "village" from end to end and not knowing what you'll find around a corner or down some steps. The illusion is maintained by the details: cobblestone streets, variegated row houses lining the boat-dotted "bay," and inviting archways that lead to narrow, shop-lined alleyways, stairways, and piazzas, but made slightly surreal by the sounds of screams from Universal roller-coaster riders. Well-appointed rooms are decorated in cool, modern aqua and cream, with deluxe beds, and flat-screen TVs. Three pools offer aquatic fun or peaceful sunning.
