“Fantastic stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2011

Slightly belated contribution, as we actually stayed in one of the villas in March 2010. Provided you're not on a tight budget, this is a great place to stay. There was some noise from the room above and they are not of the most modern decor, but the upsides far outweighed these very minor points. All of the staff, cleaning, reception, restaurant and ground (golf), were extremely pleasant, helpful and courteous. The villas restaurant served very good food, and it proved a very relaxing location for our 2 weeks in Orlando. The staff were happy for my 11 year old daughter to go out on the driving range, and the location is beautiful. It was in stark contrast to the obligatory theme parks we had to endure on a child basis (not our thing). It is also well placed for both parks and the "real" Florida experience. The local wildlife (for those not acquainted with that of Florida) included lizards, egrets, Bald Eagles, cardinals, armadillos and grackles (of hitchock fame). Will definitely stay here again if we go back to Orlando

Great hotel close to Disney parks. Rooms do show their age slightly, but everything is very well maintained. We had a 1 bedroom suite and did not have any issues with noise and were able to sleep in late without being disturbed. Kitchen in the room was very clean and well maintained and had everything we could want.

room service menu was standard fare but limited. Staff were all very helpful and concierge was especially helpful with organising flowers for our anniversary and dinner reservations.

will definately be staying at this hotel whenever we visit Disney again.

We just returned from our 8th year staying at the villas. My husband and son are golfers and can't say enough wonderful things about the golf course and staff. The staff at the resort was very friendly and accommodating and always went out of their way to be friendly. I read the reviews of others about noisy villas. We have never had that problem. We are always in a one bedroom villa which has always been an end unit and have NEVER heard a single sound from anywhere except a random golfer yelling "fore". We even had a guest with us in our villa and they commented on how quiet and peaceful it was. My only complaint would be that on the last two days we used the villas pool because the pool was so crowded at the Hyatt that you needed to scope out your seat by 7:30 am. The pool didn't open until 8 and it was very annoying and I felt like it was the amazing race to get a chair. Anyway, the towels at the villa pool were like oversized dish towels. They used to be the same towels as the hyatt and now they were changed. This made it somewhat uncomfortable and they were very rough and too small. They need to have the same towels as the Hyatt pool towels so that they are more comfortable. That being said, everything else was perfect. Even though the golf course was really crowded, my husband and son had a wonderful time. We will be back again next year.

This is a nice golf resort with great courses and the villas are nicely located near the clubhouse but they have very poor noise insulation between floors and rooms. We hear every footstep and lots of creaking of the floor above us and being in a room that is rented separately from the villa it is attched to by a poorly fitting door males for lots of noise from next door where there is a larger group. The ac/heat fan is also very loud - not sure ot would pass OSHA guidelines. Love the golf but won't stay here again. Try the Hyatt nearby if you want to be near the golf courses.

Once again we were in Orlando for a convention and had the pleasure of staying at the Villas of Grand Cypress. Unfortunately we did not have the opportunity to play golf this time but this resort is in a great location for whatever you are looking to do in Orlando. Disney is practically next door and a short drive away the Premium Outlet stores. The Convention Center is also only a short drive away.
We had a great meal at Hemmingway's on their property. There are several restaurants to choose from. The Clubhouse breakfast was excellent as was service throughout. We all enjoyed our stay and I would not even look for another place when we have to come back to Orlando.

Stayed for 3 nights - first night, had old, compressed down pillows that were quite uncomfortable. Called in AM to desk and said they were old, compressed and uncomfortable, and wanted others that were hypoallergenic. Given a very gruff, 'sorry about that, we'll take care of it, and then hung up on! Food at club was OK at best, room service was cold when served, never restocked bathrooms, so on 4th morning, had to call and ask for more shampoo. Very expensive, great golf courses, but very poor food, and poor service. Will not be back. You shouldn't either.

Okay, first off---I'm not a golfer, my husband is. We wanted a nice QUIET place to stay in Orlando for a week when he'd be attending a convention there. I brought some business work of my own to do while there, too. As soon as we drove into the long and lovely entrance of this place -- and we had come to Orlando numerous times before, when our kids were little -- we knew we'd found the perfect oasis. We will never stay anywhere else in Orlando except here ... gorgeous resort, impeccable rooms, spectacular gardens, waterways and views ... sumptuous pool area. I'll learn to play golf just so I can play there next time! Even if we bring our grown sons with us, they'll love it , too.
