Almost every time I’ve gone on just a Universal trip, I’ve stayed at the Cabana Bay Beach Resort, as that is the hotel I can afford, and I love the way the 60s theming is for it. I know you get express passes if you stay at the preferred hotels, but I don’t go during busy times, and can tour without it for now. However, I have been looking at the Aventura, and the new Endless Summer resorts, and was thinking of maybe if I ever went back possibly staying at one of these. Have any of you ever stayed at the value resorts at Universal? Do you have preference as to which you liked better?
