Royal Pacific Return

I’m back once again at Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando, which has undergone a major redecoration. The “dark” wood accented rooms that some people complained about (but which I rather liked) are no more. In the place of the more subdued palette are light pastels that still evoke the South Seas. Very nice and soothing.

Other new items: flat screen TVs and iPod docks in place of the old CD players. Gotta keep up with technology!

We’re booked into the Club level and were upgraded to a gi-normous suite — 1,600 square feet. Sweet!

Here’s the food service schedule in the Club Lounge:

Continental Breakfast 7 to 10:30
Afternoon Snacks noon to 4:30
Evening Relaxation 5 to 7
Something Sweet 8 to 9:30

The breakfast buffet is lavish, with hot oatmeal and gooey cinnamon buns. Yum.
Although we didn’t indulge, many people seemed to be making a meal of the hors d’oeuvres served from 5 to 7.

Gracious, friendly staff, as always.

Of the three Club lounges, I like RPR best for some reason. Can’t quite put my finger on it, but the curved space overlooking I-4 and I-Drive just seems to “work.”
