“For the money...would stay either at Disney or Universal instead”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

Decent timeshare hotel with a large master, smaller second bedroom and two uncomfortable pull out couches. Hotel was okay, but nothing special. They are doing a lot of construction and we were placed in unit 68 which was where a lot of the renovation and construction equipment seemed to be parked. There was not always parking at our unit, so some nights we parked two or three units away and then walked to out room. No maid service as this is a timeshare unit, but they did bring us clean towels if we made a request. Our dishwasher did not work so we had to wash dishes through two cycles to clean the milk from glasses and cereal bowls and our bathrooms were not cleaned (hair in the sink and bathtubs) when we arrived, so we had some cleaning to do after we arrived. It was also very far from the main office and activities.

Jogging trails and lake were nice, but again were affected by the construction. The basic pools were too far to go to from our unit, but we also stayed at the Portofino Hotel during our stay, so we used the pools there, went to Wet 'N Wild or went to Cocoa Beach for the day.

Did take advantage for the 7 day Universal Park to Park early admission passes for $157 with a $20 upgrade to include Wet 'N Wild which were sold in the lobby. The early admission is key to avoiding long lines, unless you splurge for Express passes or stay at a Universal hotel which includes the Express passes in the room charges.

Room Tip: Get a room closer to the main office and pools away from the renovation projects. Make sure that the...

We stayed here as part of our timeshare. In 15 years or so this has to be the best place we have stayed. We actually plan our Orlando activities around the resorts activities. Great activities for younger kids and older teens like ours. Bar is great but intrusive at main pool. Great snacks and meals at pool restaurant. Order the nachos with buffalo chicken! Pool is heated enough as to not be too warm but not chilly. Dueling pianos was great on Monday nights as Royal Polynesian Show on Thursday nights. Enough for everybody. Great resort photographer. We left with a very reasonably priced set of pictures taken around the resort. We are already planning next years vacation here with more family members.

Just got back from two weeks here. It's hard to find anything wrong with this property. The rooms were spacious, well furnished and had everything we needed. My only wish was that it provided areas that I might have an occasional cigar, but I knew it was smoke free when we bokked it. Rained every day we were there, but I can't blame the property. I will probably never viist Orlando again, but if this property were located anywhere else, I would definitely go back.

This was just a great resort to stay in. It had everything you need to have a comfortable stay.

We stayed there for two weeks and it was just great. The master bedroom was great (and spacious) with great shower and jacuzzi. The only downside in the master bedroom is that the TV should be upgraded. They still had a CRT TV there.

The living room is just spacious and kitchennette is also great. Everything you need is there from dishes, dishwasher, waching machine, dryer, etc....

The second bedoom is a tad on the small side but it works and also has a bathroom right next to it.

The location is amazing. SeaWorld is basically a 2 minute drive. Universal and Disney are both pretty close by. Probably a 10 minute drive. The outlet mall is also a few minutes drive.

Fantastic experience.

We stayed at Cypress Harbour (CH) for a week after we stayed across the street at Mariott's Harbour Lake (HL). As diverse as the activities were at CH, we were just not as impressed. That's not a knock on CH, but for our 4.5, 3.5, and 1 year old, it just wasn't as...amazing.
The highlights for the kids were the boat rides aback an forth to the main pool (for fun, not necessity) and the gentleman who seemed to run the activities area (I can't recall his name, but he was deservedly the February Employee of the Month). The Polynesian review should not be missed either (on Thursdays). The circular layout of the place was nice, and the kids enjoyed the coy fish outside the lobby. The food was okay as well as the bar (better happy hour at HL). The pools were nice, and when the kids get a little older, they'll probably prefer them to the ones across the street. The golf course looked well maintained. The activity center/play room was good and clean and well maintained.
Some of the units were under renovation which blocked one of the nature trails which couldn't have been avoided. The units themselves were decked out with better amenities than across the street, but the layout was annoying. The kitchen table was in the middle of the main hallway into the living room. I just shoved it against the wall, but then we'd hit our heads on the overhead light. The Jacuzzi was amazing, and the kids enjoyed it daily. The unit was very spacious, and we had a top floor with a very nice lake view.
We had a great week at CH, but if you have younger kids, we would still recommend Harbour Lake.

Very lovely complex. Three swimming pools to choose from from the main pool -busy, to the Island pool- relaxed to the Boat house pool- quiet. Grounds well maintained and excellent sport and spa facilities. Apartments overlooking lakes or golf courses. Two large bedrooms, living area, dining area, kitchen and utility room with washing machine and dryer. Two bathrooms and a whirlpool bath for two! Three large flat screen TVs. Staff are very friendly and very helpful.
Great holiday destination.

First off, we came to Orlando to go to Universal Studios for the week. I will admit that the moment I walked into my villa, I did not want to go off property at all. Everything is new, stainless steel, and modern. Each associate acknowledges you when they walk by, or drive by on the golf cart, or even makes some sort of eye contact with you. That makes all the difference in the world. The caliber of service here is unprecedented, and as a Marriott employee, I will bring this experience back to Buffalo, NY and use their standards in my practice.

Thank you! We will most certainly be back!
