Way back in the depths of a cold and dreary January, we teased the opening of Universal Orlando Resort’s newest resort, Endless Summer - Surfside Inn and Suites. Back then, it probably felt like summer was never going to come around. Thankfully, it has, and the stylish, contemporary resort is now fully open. With fresh and light coloured rooms, quality facilities and lots of space, this is a great affordable option for visitors to Universal.
Rooms and Rates
Rooms have been available to book for a while now, and we’ve no doubt that this newest addition will be incredibly popular with families and friends alike. Peak prices start from as little as £795 and low-season prices from just £425, based on four sharing - the best value Universal on-site rooms.
As well as standard rooms, over half the rooms are also two-bedroom suites. These provide an ideal place for all the family to hang out in their own space, after an action-packed day spent exploring the theme parks. The rooms can accommodate up to six people in three queen beds, featuring two rooms and a lovely big bathroom and communal seating area too. Free WiFi as well!
By staying at a Universal on-site hotel, you will be minutes from the action of all Universal Orlando theme parks and Universal’s CityWalk. The complimentary transportation ride takes less than five minutes, making maximum use of your holiday time.
Other perks of staying at Endless Summer Resort - Surfside Inn and Suites include:
Early Park Admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Universal’s Volcano Bay, one hour before the theme parks open on select days and attractions.
Resort-wide charging privileges, meaning your room key card is your main form of payment
Free delivery of merchandise, so you don’t need to carry your bags around with you through the theme parks
Complimentary club-to-club access to select Universal CityWalk venues. Just show your room key to get in.
Food & Drink
OK, here’s the important part - what can you eat and drink at Endless Summer - Surfside Inn and Suites?
Well, there’s a well-stocked food court where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner, alongside a pool-side bar to laze beside during the day. A coffee shop and (perhaps best of all) a pizza delivery service, direct to your room, also feature in this new hotel. Fantastic!
Here’s a look at some of the dishes on offer:
Breakfast Pizza - Sausage Gravy, Bacon, Scrambled Eggs, Mozzarella and Cheddar Cheese.
Pipeline Burger - Beef Patty, topped with Caramelized onion, bacon jam and Provolone cheese served with crisp lettuce and vine ripe tomatoes on a toasted bun.
