“Exceptional experience, value and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Whether on business or pleasure trips to Orlando, the Villas of Grand Cypress is our destination of choice. The service is second to none. The entire set of Villa courts have received a complete First Class renovation. The super comfortable King size beds and bathrooms are perfect.

The staff is super responsive and can take care of your every need.

The on-site restaurants are outstanding in both service and exceptional taste. When entertaining top clients, I prefer to dine at the exclusive 918 restaurant. The shrimp cocktails look like baby lobster tails and the Cowboy Steak puts anything from Morton's or Ruth Chris to shame!

Every time, the entire experience is absolutely wonderful!

Room Tip: Rooms with views of the golf course and outside patios are great for entertaining and drinks before...

We love hearing the virtues of our beloved Nine18 extolled so jubilantly! Those shrimp cocktails are a force to be reckoned with, and we are glad the general consensus is becoming as such. What a hip idea to have drinks on one’s villa patio before heading to one of the property restaurants for dinner. And since every room on property comes equipped with either a first-floor patio or a second-story balcony and either a golf course or water view, there is no reason not to!

We stayed at this hotel from 04/22 to 04/25. What can I say? It was great. The hotel is new, in the middle of a golf club. The villas are spetacular!!! My kids love it. The people are extremely polite too.

Our two bedroom villa is beatufil. the annemities are great two. The breakfest is an american breakfast. For our brazilian taste it is not so good. So, if I stay there again, I will not take the breakfast.

I recommed the hotel for everyone.
ps: I stayed in two other others in Orlando: Waldorf Astoria an Sheraton Vistana. Both are not good as Grand Cypress,Even Waldorf, that is considered one of the best of Orlando. Villas of Grand Cypress is better. More luxury.

Kids can often be the most astute critics, so I am relieved that the Villas exceeded your young ones’ expectations! Next time you’re in town, Lauren at the clubhouse recommends you try our Breakfast Quesadilla if you’re seeking a bit of Latin influence in your breakfast, stuffed with eggs and cheese with salsa and sour cream on the side (And a little insider’s tip: your waitperson can also bring you some fresh guacamole if you request it!). She also recommends one of our frittatas, made with tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella. You also can’t go wrong with an overflowing bowl of mixed fresh fruits, am I right? When you return, Lauren and the rest of our Club wait
staff will be more than happy to help find the perfect breakfast fit for you and your kids!

Other recent guest reviews of this newly renovated property are accurate (and, I did some extensive TripAdvisor research before choosing to stay here). The Villas is beautiful. Their remodeled Villas are impressive, as they didn't skip any details -- from soft, pull-out leather sofas, high-end furniture and bathroom fixtures, wooden window shutters, steel kitchen appliances, Keurig coffee makers, etc. -- it really is impressive. Great location from Disney, service is impressively prompt with courteous, helpful staff. Yes, it is a bit on the pricey side for accommodations however this place is perfect haven for big parties and families. Very spacious and covers every apartment-style need you could ask for.

We stayed within the Court One section in a two bed, two-story villa (#1071) -- right in the center of the property within easy walking distance from the restaurants and Clubhouse. I will note there were a few spots that needed repair (i.e. basic wear and tear), as I think this Villa is probably occupied by guests 100% of the time due to its central location. The upstairs AC was not working, which made the top floor very cold in the mornings. The stairs had some carpet tacks almost emerging from the carpet, major dust behind the bathtubs and in the laundry closet but other than my nit picky cleaning standards, it was overall clean and well maintained. They do need to fix that top floor AC though.

Very quiet and private property, as it's truly amazing that such a haven exists there due to its central location in Orlando. We even saw a huge turtle walking across the road one morning. They even know how nice it is to stay there.

If you have kids, I would recommend going to the Hyatt Grand Cypress down the street to use their three pools (one it heated) and their fountain/jets splash area.

Housekeeping delivered everything we requested with prompt, friendly service. They even gave us a brand new portable crib with new bedding for our 7 mos. old saying "she'll be the first baby to use this crib". When you arrive, concierge drives you to your accommodations and even gives you a quick tour of your Villa. Now that's service.

We stayed for six nights the second week of April 2013, traveled with three adults and two young children. We didn't use the golf facilities but we did see folks out on the course every day we were there. I would highly recommend staying here.

Your darling daughter is the perfect model for the new living room units! I love how her fun outfit sort of matches the carpet! I have been sure to pass along the maintenance notes you have listed to the appropriate engineering managers so we can continue to keep our exciting new rooms in superb condition for our guests. Now don’t let the turtle get a leg up on you and come back soon with the family!

Our company recently held a event at the Villas of Grand Cypress for our top clients, executive team and partners. With such an exclusive guest list, the venue had to please and the VGC exceeding all our expectations. Every single staff member went out of their way to meet our needs and we received nothing but compliments from all of our attendees. This gorgeous property has everything going for it - location, generous accomodations, luxurious appointments, first class service, amazing food - - I highly recommend it for your next visit to the Orlando area. If you are hosting an event in the Orlando area than I cant encourage you enough to add the VGC to your list of properties to consider. This place is MADE for intimate events and you will look like a rock star for finding this gem!!!

Rock stars are our specialty! When entertaining executive clientele, our visiting meeting planners have a variety of options for space, including Four-Bedroom Villas for private parties where our catering team can set up anything from a cocktail hour to a multi-course meal, any of our several tasteful ballrooms in our Executive Meeting Center, or a nighttime reception at our pool bar, complete with DJ. You can even take over our fine dining restaurant Nine18 for a grand finale dinner party! We want to do everything we can to use that “SO MUCH” space in a way that will make your event a success and make you look great hosting it!

Stayed during a business trip. The location is good, the rooms are spacious and clean.
The service is outstanding. Golf courses are very well maintained.
Overall, I can recommend this place for golf and family vacation.

The great thing about being such a large golf course located so close to Disney World is that we can be the best of both worlds for families with golfers! It is not uncommon for some of our family guests to split up during the day, some heading to the parks and others hitting the courses, only to reconvene in the evening for dinner and some time at the pool and hot tub. I will be sure and pass your compliment along to our golf maintenance staff; they will be elated to hear that the courses are being well used and enjoyed!

This place is incredible! We had the good fortune of staying here after my husband participated in a fundraiser/golf tournament. From our initial stop at the security gate, we knew we were in good hands. The staff was professional, welcoming, and relaxed. Our official welcome at registration came with great news of an upgrade to a 2-bedroom villa (we had booked a 1 bedroom based on availability). The villa was gorgeous, spacious, modern, I never wanted to leave. In all of our hotel stays, we have never been treated this well, and in a manner that was comfortable and easy. We had our two young children along with us as well, and I just can't say enough about what a wonderful place this was for all of us. We had drinks and lunch poolside one day, and realized that everywhere we went on the property we found people dedicated and seemingly enjoying the good work they do. We will be back again and again. I highly recommend this resort, we will treasure this place for a long time.

How delightful that in all of your hotel stays, you have never felt as well-treated as you did at the Villas! Our goal is casual luxury, so your saying that the service was comfortable and easy means we are reaching our goals. Very often at the front desk we have young adults come to us saying that their family started staying at the Villas when they were just small children, and now they consider it their “special place” as they are starting to bring their own families with them. I cannot wait to have this happen with your sweet children as we welcome you back again and again in the years to come.

We can call this a home away from home!, we fisit quite often due to the kids going to Disney and we definitely enjoy our stay at the resort. People is very friendly and service is A+++
we stayed in two rooms with a great ambiance; really a great place to stay due to its location, not on the congested site of the city and close enough to the parks.

A seasoned park goer like yourself knows better than anyone the importance of finding time away from the noise throughout your time in Orlando so that you don’t get back home more in need of a vacation than when you left! The Villas aim to be just what you’ve described us to be: a “home away from home” for travelers and park goers where one can relax and unwind after a day in the fun-though-frenzied wonderland of Orlando’s attractions scene.
