“Five Stars, ZERO pretense”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

The Villas of Grand Cypress must be EXPERIENCED to be understood. h though we had never stayed at the Villas before (have stayed at the Hyatt - their "Big Sis" neighbor), we felt absolutely welcomed from the minute we set foot on property. Literally, from the guard gate attendant through all other experiences we had over four nights. Truly exceptional. Hotels talk a lot about "service that knows me" - only the Villas at Grand Cypress delivers on that. The shuttle drivers knew we had two young children in tow and were very accommodating. The 1-Bedroom Villa Suite was incredible. All modern amenities, modern SMART TV, in-room washer/dryer (we used it), full-sized refrigerator, oven, etc - all were awesome.

The pool was warm in February and incredible, ping-pong was awesome, and in-room dining service was EXCELLENT (try the salmon and the pizza!).

Shuttle service (free) takes you to the Hyatt Grand Cypress, and then a quick shuttle bus over to Disney Transportation Center. Couldn't be easier.

Love the Villas of Grand Cypress and we cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: We stayed in a one-bedroom Villa. On the golf course. Completely quiet.

How fantastic that you took advantage of our shuttle service to the parks! We definitely agree; it’s too easy of an option to not make use of it. There’ll be more salmon, Ping-Pong, and pretenseless service waiting for you next time you’re in The City Beautiful.

We stayed at a Disney hotel for about a week, then we had reservations at a place in Cocoa Beach which turned out to be terrible. Turning to our trusty tripadvisor we found the Villas of Grand Cypress. We don't play golf, but the glowing reviews convinced us to give it a try.

Every single aspect of our stay exceeded our expectations. The service was impeccable and very friendly. The rooms are of good size, the bathrooms are very nice indeed (especially the shower heads!!), there are power outlets and USB ports all over the place, the food is very good (and much cheaper than Disney), and the grounds are very pleasant. The pool and hot tub are nothing fancy (no water slides) but they are nevertheless spacious and well tended. There is a pool side bar and attendants who will bring you fresh towels.

When we were there the pool area was mostly empty, with only one other family playing in the pool. They were all laughing and having a good time, with the kids sometimes squealing in delight. The adults all appeared relaxed and happy. How often do you see that at Disney? Usually it's kids having a melt-down and the parents looking like people who are just waiting for it to end.

Everything on-site was in easy walking distance from our room, including the pool and the restaurant. The golf course makes for nice views and pleasant walks. There are numerous lakes and ponds which attract a lot of wild life. We all had fun checking out the different kinds of water birds.

In the end we were sad we couldn't stay longer. We regret spending any time staying at a Disney hotel when this excellent place is so close by and so much better. If we ever need to be in the Orlando area in the future, this is definitely where we'll stay!

The scene you’ve just painted of an afternoon at the Villas pool is one we are thankful to declare is an everyday occurrence: couples, families, and individuals enjoying themselves in the Florida sun, no stress or long lines. I’m happy your itinerary brought us across your path and I’m VERY happy to hear you’ll be back next time!

Our Company held a training event at Grand Cypress in January and the event staff was great expecially all the work Nerissa Wachter did to make sure everything was in place and nothing was missed based on our requirments. In addition Tom Alex and Joe Ballant went above and beyond to meet our needs and make sure we had everything we needed on the Academy Course to make our event a sucess. The rooms were great and the entire staff was friendly and made our group feel at home. We hope we are welcome to come back in the future. Hats off to everyone at Grand Cypress.

Nerissa never ceases to provide a quality experience to all of our corporate guests and groups; we’re so glad she’s a part of our team. And Tom has been here longer than anyone else on property, yet he still surprises us with the level of excellence with which he keeps all of our courses. I’ll be sure and pass your regards along to the entire team; I can’t wait to see your group again next year!

I recently stayed at the Villas of Grand Cypress while conducting business on site and in the surrounding area. The accomodations were in a word - exceptional. Every staff member I encountered was very gracious and curteous. We could not have had a more positive experience and I look forward to opportunities to return to the Villas for another stay.

“Exceptional,” “gracious,” and “courteous.” Those are some words I love to hear! That your experience could not have been more positive is just a delight to hear. We look forward to the opportunity to have you return to the Villas for another stay, as well!

Wow! Just came back from a weekend here and I have to say that this will rank as one of the absolute best places my wife and I have ever stayed at. We were celebrating our 26th anniversary and were treated overwhelmingly well. Thank you Christine (front desk)! We stayed in the one bedroom villa which had a full living room with a fireplace, full kitchen and a dining area that seated 8! The villa was large, clean and up to date with flat screen HD smart TV’s, USB ports everywhere and modern furniture and fixtures. My wife and I were upset that we didn’t take more time off from work to stay longer! She already wants to make plans to return with the family.

Happy 26th anniversary! How exciting. I’m honored you celebrated such a special day with us. And that Christine is just a gem! She's such a five-star part of our team. You’ll have to take off more time next time for the 27th return of your special day, because we want you to stay longer, too!

This resort is truly the total experience. It is relaxing, beautiful, exciting, close to the popular locations but a quiet getaway from it all. The staff was accommodating to some particular dietary requests (gluten free, vegetarian) with delicious menu selections. We will certainly return every time we plan a trip to Orlando, and likely plan a trip to Orlando just to return!

Room Tip: Stay in one of the villas on the water, on the west side, so you can watch the birds and Disney fire...

This is my third time staying at the Villas of Grand Cypress. If you are looking for a place to stay, stop looking and book here. The rooms are the largest I have seen in the Orlando area. Plus the Villas are immaculate, modern rooms, with very large bathrooms that have tubs and spa showers with body jets. Even a tv that appears in the bathroom mirror.

The manager of the hotel, Mark, helped us make our initial reservation and he could not have been more accommodating and professional. Reservation agent Morgan, then helped us adjust the dates of our stay at the last minute because our 3 kids all came down with stomach flu. The entire staff just makes you feel comfortable and will do anything you need to make your stay more enjoyable.

We have 3 small children ages 3 and 4 and after a long day at the park, I can't think of a more relaxing place to come back to. There is nothing I would change about this resort. We will be back very soon.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are easier if you have lots of luggage and kids can walk out the back doors to se...
