“relaxing oasis”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

I have stayed here every year for the last 10 years. This is the best place to stay in Orlando. Fully remodeled villas and you can't ask for more with a TV in the bathroom!!!
Close to all of the attractions that Orlando has to offer.

10 years! How Grand! Make sure that you are entered into our Distinguished Guest program (for guests with 10 or more stays at the Villas) so that you receive all the exciting benefits that come with that status. We love our loyal return guests; they know us best of all!

My wife and I concluded a two week tour of Florida at the Villas of Grand Cypress. We had asked for a room with a view of the Disney fireworks, and the staff honored this request in splendid fashion. We stayed in a one bedroom, Court 5 villa for three nights. We're golfers, but our stop at the Villas at the end of our travels was dedicated to some R&R and quiet time. This was our first stay, and we had read many tripadvisor reviews of the recent guest room renovations. The renovated villa was outstanding in every respect. The stainless steel kitchen appliances were top notch, the bed and bedding was excellent, the living room area was extremely comfortable...and the bathroom was out of this world! Glass shower with multiple shower sprays, a soaking tub, beautiful double sink vanity and an electric mirror with TV! Interior design and stonework in the villa is beautiful. And the outdoor patio overlooking the lake and golf course made for a perfect, tranquil setting. The entire staff was very accommodating and professional in every respect. We had room service one evening at our outdoor patio table. The food was served quickly (and hot), and the quality was excellent! All in all, this amazing Villa is now in our top five of all-time favorite hotel rooms! We'll be back!

Room Tip: Court 5 villas offer tranquil view of lake and golf course. Can also view Disney fireworks in the e...

Top five all-time favorite hotel rooms?? Color us flattered! I’m glad that you were able to achieve your goal for some “R&R” while you were with us. Our hope is that, as you mentioned, the new bathrooms-turned-mini-spas and other renovated amenities can make even the shortest stop in Orlando a rejuvenating, revitalizing getaway for our guests. Come back soon!

First word I used when I walked into the totally remodeled villa: wow!

This was my second trip to the Villas. My first trip was really great, so I was looking forward to returning. The villa was beautiful then. But the remodel was fantastic! Total luxury, but certainly all the bells and whistles for the seasoned biz traveler that we crave: zillions of power plugs, USB plugs, huge HD TVs that do everything (even a TV in the bathroom mirror!), awesome walk in shower (pay attention when Gareth takes your bags and gives you the "how to use" lesson) and much much more.

The staff continues to be the best of the best. Talked with a few that have been working there 10 plus years. Speaks to the quality and culture of the owners, the GM and the managers.

The golf courses continue to be in my top 10, and there are a few new holes being built that I believe Nicklaus is also designing.

Funny story, with 4 golfers, we all lost something on the course (wedge, range finder, even sun screen) and all items were returned. Great staff!

This will be an annual trip, and hopefully twice a year!

Room Tip: Any villa is fantastic.

We like “WOW”s! The excess of power plugs and USB outlets and TV screens per room (and bathroom) are some of the best parts of the renovated rooms. One can never have too much electricity and connectivity access! Your belief is correct: Jack Nicklaus is designing our three new holes as we make a few alterations to allow room for even Grander upgrades at the resort. I’m glad that all of your lost items were found; our courses are expansive, but our team knows their terrain well! Our vote is on the twice-a-year idea you mentioned there; Gareth the bellman will be here when you return to take your bags and show the next new feature that I’m sure we’ll have added by then!

First off...I'm a travel agent so I stay at a lot of properties ( i need to truly start reviewing more). And this 1...is 1 of my favorites. They're renovations are stunning and they truly leave nothing to be desired. I'll be staying there for the 3rd time in less than a year and won't stop. They're villas are awesome!!!! So close to the disney and universal properties and can take a shuttle right over there. Also loved free bike riding in the morning and room service. Its a true gem and you can tell they are so proud of their new rennovations. Nice job villas!

Btw...i don't even play golf and was still AWESOME so don't let that stop you.

Room Tip: Any room...but the villas are awesome!

One of our favorite things is to be called a “favorite.” The landscape of the Villas is so beautiful in the morning, dew on the grass, egrets on the lakes; how smart to take advantage of our bike fleet at that time! The mornings would also be a great time to use the boat rentals available on our Lake Windsong! You’ll have to get out and give the paddleboats or kayaks a try when you return; hopefully soon!

Your tip about room views is spectacular! One of the many benefits we have at the Villas is that EVERY room has a great view! Because our accommodations are built similar to condominiums and all face out to our expansive property landscape, there is no room that has to face a boring parking lot or the side of a greying neighboring hotel. Every room has either a view of one of our property’s many lakes, or the undulating hills of our golf fairways. We know how a room view can enhance an overall guest experience, and we love that every guest who stays with us has something beautiful and inspiring to see when they look out their villa window.

February for 2 weeks; Second time here in two years you're made welcome from the minute you drive through the gate. Front desk were very helpful ( thank you Tammi who never seems to go home ) . All the staff here make you feel welcome always a wave and a smile as you drive by. Golf is excellent, service and food excellent,Villa excellent. You get to see the fireworks from Disney every night from your villa which have all had major renovation work to a high standard since our last visit.Our thanks to Mark Cox ( General Manager ) and all his staff for giving us once again a great vacation can wait for our next stay here when we next visit Orlando.

Room Tip: Over looking holes 2 and 3 of the north course have lake and fairway views and good firework view.

How fantastic that you were able to stay with us for two full weeks this time! I'm glad that you experienced the Villas before the renovation so that you, like many others, might see how our accomodations and service level have both reached new heights in 2013. I'll be sure and let Tammie know that you appreciated her availability at the desk during your stay. I can say with confidence that it was her pleasure to do whatever should could to make your second stay with us become a third, a fourth, a fifth, and a sixth!

Stayed here for first Disney vacation.... Front desk told us a quick way to get to the parks without fighting traffic. Had a beautiful villa, quiet, clean, away from all the hustle and bustle. Bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever been in. A truly first class place, with awesome service.

A Disney vacation; is there any other kind? I hope you were able to take advantage of our Disney shuttle to get back and forth. You were in town just in time see to all the new things happening at Disney AND at the Villas! I, too, love that our property is so close to Disney and the other parks and is yet starkly different in atmosphere. I hope your next "first class" vacation brings you our way!
