So stayed a night here on Sunday. Will say that I was very impressed with the value for the price. The room details and theming was great. Stayed in a two bedroom with a view of Dockside for $109. Loved all the chairs, fixtures, and colors (and I am not a beach person at all). Honestly, my fave detail was the granite at the sink and bar looked like sand and seashells. Lobby wasn’t anything amazing, but pool area was cute. Froze’ drink at the pool beer was on point (only 9.50!) and the shuttles were the quickest I’ve ever experienced at Universal. I’ve stayed at all the hotels at Universal, and this is a solid addition. Currently booked at Dockside for $79 a night for HHN but may change to Sapphire for boat access. Would definitely recommend Surfside for room alone.

Is there a date for when Dockside will open? We have our August trip booked for there, and was wondering if it would be open by then. I'm thinking if not, they'll move us to Surfside with the same kind of room?

What’s peoples general thoughts on Dockside opening?

Could we see this potentially not open until next summer?

I ask because I’m meant to be staying here in September (which is quite clearly not happening).

I’m still working to verify it with some other people, but a report I was given put Surfside being very popular at the moment, especially compared to other UOR hotels. If that’s actually the case, I wouldn’t be surprised to see them open Dockside before Portofino (by comparison, some of the more expensive ones like HRH have been having a little bit of a harder time drawing people in).
