Hard Rock Hotel® at Universal Orlando Resort™

Orlando, FL


Hard Rock® Paradise Near Universal Studios Orlando

At Hard Rock Hotel, “go big or go home” is almost a mantra. Our T-Rex-size pool has a monster slide, and there are speakers under the water so you never have to miss your favorite tune. We also think our micro-beach is the ideal place to work on some major relaxation. (Or, should you be here on business, that report that’s due tomorrow.) Of all the Orlando hotels with fun pools there is nothing that compares to the Hard Rock Hotel. Of course, if you’d like another type of liquid fun, let our servers bring you a cold beer or frozen cocktail. Our poolside cabanas, available for a fee, are a luxurious oasis within an oasis. If you need to keep yourself bikini- or camera-ready, our body rock® fitness center is the answer. After a serious workout, relax in our his-and-hers saunas or take a steam. Or spoil yourself with a Mandara Hot Stone Therapy or Balinese Massage at our sister property’s Mandara Spa, just moments away.

12,000-square-foot Pool

Welcome to the centerpiece of Hard Rock Hotel—the "can't miss" activity during your stay with us. Hang out at the beach and soak up the sun for the day. Your favorite tunes fill the air, and the pool features an underwater sound system so you'll never miss a beat. Every member of the family is sure to have a rockin' good time going down the 260-foot pool slide. There’s even more poolside fun thanks to these awesome features:

  • Giant water slide
  • Two Jacuzzis
  • Sand volleyball court
  • Interactive fountains and play area for the children

Poolside Cabanas

If you’re looking at Orlando resort hotels, and a poolside cabana is a top priority, you’re in luck. The Hard Rock Hotel has A-list worthy cabanas available to rent. Each comes equipped with a ceiling fan, plasma TV, refrigerator, wireless Internet, and of course, a server to bring you drinks all day.

Poolside Activities & Recreation

From ping pong tournaments, water balloon tosses, pool basketball, hula hoop contests or arts & crafts, you’ll find something fun to do poolside for the whole family. Check with the front desk upon your arrival to find out what's going on during your stay.

Now you don’t have to choose between one more hour at the pool or leaving to catch a movie. On select nights at the Hard Rock Hotel, we host poolside “dive-in movies.” What could be better than watching one of your favorite films under the stars?

The pool also rocks out with Concert Nights & DJ Days on a seasonal basis. On select days and nights throughout the week, you’ll find a live band or DJ spinning today’s hottest tunes. Be sure to check with the front desk upon your arrival to find out what’s going on at the pool during your stay.
