Hello from Aventura! I’m currently sitting by the pool sipping my morning coffee and soaking up the sunshine. This is my fourth trip to Univeral Orlando this year as one of their ambassadors and I’ve stayed at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Cabana Bay Beach Resort, and now, Aventura Hotel.

Aventura Hotel is the newest hotel to Universal Orlando that’s located across from Cabana Bay Beach and Volcano Bay. Positioned as a high-tech and budget-friendly hotel, here are 5 reasons why you should stay at Aventura on your next visit to Universal Orlando!
ROOFTOP BAR WITH 360° VIEW
First things first, Aventura has an AMAZING rooftop 360° view of Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Volcano Bay water park and downtown Orlando skyline. Enjoy the view with delicious cocktails from the rooftop bar, Bar 17 Bistro, open from 4pm – 12am and 2am on Thurs – Sat. The 17th floor does only open at 4pm so you won’t be able to access it from the elevator before that.
POOL + JACUZZI
Every Universal Orlando resort and hotel has a pool and Aventura is no different with a big pool with a poolside bar, Bar Sol, and a jacuzzi open 8am to 10pm.
DINING & WINING OPTIONS
Aventura has several food and drink options in the hotel: Starbucks, barVentura (lobby bar with a daily happy hour with $6 speciality cocktails from 4pm – 7pm), Bar Sol (hotel pool bar), Bar 17 Bistro (rooftop bar open from 4pm – 12am and 2am on Thurs – Sat), and Urban Pantry. Urban Pantry is the food hall open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with 4 different food stations: wok, burgers, pizza, and roast.
WALKING DISTANCE TO VOLCANO BAY + SHUTTLES TO UNIVERSAL CITYWALK
Volcano Bay is conveniently located right across the street and there’s a dedicated walking path to Universal’s Volcano Bay. To get to Universal Citywalk, there are shuttles departing from the hotel every 15 minutes. There is also a complimentary dining shuttle that can take you to dinner at any other Universal Orlando hotel.

EARLY PARK ADMISSION
The biggest perk of staying on onsite at Universal Orlando Resort is the early park admission. You can enter the park one hour early as a hotel guest which means Volcano Bay, Diagon Alley, and Hogsmeade won’t be as packed!
