“Golfers Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

Stayed at the Villas of Grand Cypress for work and wished I could have stayed longer! If you are a golfer this is the place for you! Had a single Villas with a King size bed which was beyond comfortable. The Villas are located about a half mile from Walt Disney World. If you are looking for a place for you and/or your family where you don't want the headache of being on property this is the place for you. The Villas have shuttles that will pick you up at your door and bring you to the pool, fitness center, or the club or their 4 star rated Forbes Restaurant Title 9. Rooms are spacious, beyond comfortable and modern - highly luxurious, without the price tag! Pool area was great and did have a pool bar. The Villas can convert from one to 3 bedrooms so great for families who want out of the hustle and bustle! HIghly recommend! Customer Service is top rated as well!

You put it perfectly; whether you’re a family, a Disney-goer, a golfer, or a business person, the Villas “is the place for you!” You’ll definitely have to return and stay longer sometime soon!

Overall a positive experience - really loved this property and would live there permanently!

I liked how the Villas are secluded and quiet yet very close to Disney. When we arrived, a bellboy took us on a detailed tour of the room, showing us all the features it had. The room was big, with lovely luxurious furniture and a balcony from which the fireworks could be enjoyed. The bathroom was also awesome.

Negatives:
- A/C is controlled by a motion sensor located by the entrance. It shuts off automatically after some time, so the only way to have the A/C running all night is to walk by the entrance every hour. As I'm not a vampire, I suffered disturbed sleep as it got too warm and stuffy. I want to rate this hotel 5 green dots, but as a rule I always deduct one green dot for this very basic disregard for sleeping comfort.
- The floors were very thin and trembled when someone in a neighboring unit walks, which was very disruptive.
- USB ports next to bed were a nice touch but didn't work. Plugged my phone in and it was flat in the morning.
- There was complimentary a la carte breakfast - you can choose anything off a short list and they will make it to order. First, a buffet breakfast would have been more convenient because most days we were rushing to make it to the theme parks at opening time. Second, the options are quite limited and the breakfast quality was poor for what you would expect - mushy pancakes, oily hash and rubber eggs (I gave this feedback after the stay so hopefully they have improved by now). Third, we had to tip for table service.

With so many negatives, the fact that I still enjoyed the stay says a lot.

I don't golf so can't comment on that.

Accessibility: There are shuttles to Disney and Universal but the instructions provided weren't super clear (seemed to involve transfers at a different hotel) and the timetable didn't seem to allow much flexibility around when to come and go. You would need a car anyway to get to food and shops.

Tip: Driving to Magic Kingdom, we used Google Maps and took a "back-door" route. After getting lost for a bit we found ourselves in the parking lot having somehow bypassed the payment gateway, so we got to park for free for the day. Not sure if this would always work ;)

First, I'd like to say that I frequent this hotel quite a bit and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Orlando.
The property is very close to all the theme parks and I-4, but is tucked in it's own little corner which gives it a more peaceful feel as opposed to being in the middle of the Orlando madness.

Rooms are always clean and functional. I usually just stay in the King Suite, but if you can afford it you should definitely pay the extra for the 1 Bedroom Suite as most of these have a full kitchen, dinning room, and living room.

The property has a large pool and two hot tubs, as well as complimentary bike rentals and a large golf course.

Service is always outstanding. Everyone is attentive and willing to assist with anything you might need.

To me, this is THE place to stay in the Orlando area.

One of a kind.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing toward Disney, as you may be able to catch a glimpse of the fireworks from Epc...

I’m tickled to read that you “wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Orlando.” And with your commendation as “THE place to stay” here in the City Beautiful, we wouldn’t have it any other way!

This is a property that you must do a site visit on. It's like nothing around in the Orlando area. The service was exceptional and the entire, and I mean the entire friendly staff is always willing to assist you or just wave and say hi. Meetings at the Villas will make you feel that you have the entire complex just waiting for you and no one else.

Room Tip: Every room has a view of either a golf course or a quiet pond. Some rooms are on a 2nd level, so be...

Perfect from the moment we reached the security gate. Staff was outstanding. I have never experienced customer service at this level! Close to everything but yet a quiet and relaxing feeling from the hustle and bustle of Disney. Rooms are immaculate. Can't wait to visit Orlando again. Save me a room!

I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to hear that you have “never experienced customer service” at the level of the Villas before! We can’t for you to visit Orlando again, either. Consider that room saved!

Everything was perfect... Large, clean, comfortable and newly renovated 1 bedroom suite w/ covered patio. Wonderful service, staff very friendly and accommodating, nice warm outdoor pool, close proximity to Disney but a quiet retreat from its hustle and bustle. Nothing but great things to say!
