“Everything we needed --- and great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

We stayed here in November 2011 in a 3 bedroom condo. It was clean, beautiful and very spacious! The unit was a combination of the 2 bedroom and 1 bedroom lockoff, so the kids loved having their own space, connected to ours.

The main area had full living room and tv, dining room for 4 and full kitchen with 2 on a breakfast nook. The kitchen had full sized fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher and garburator. The master bedroom had a king bed, tv, ensuite with stand up shower and seperate jacuzzi (also 2 seperate sinks!). There was a second bath with sink, toilet and tub/shower combo. The second bedroom had a queen bed, flat screen tv on the wall and closet. The 1 bedroom lockoff had king bed, jacuzzi, stand up shower, toilet and partial kitchen (bar fridge, microwave). The units were clean, and well appointed - nothing fraying, discolored or old looking (as I have read in other reviews). Both units had patios (we were on the ground floor) and were screened in, with locking bars on the sliding doors. For those on upper floors, there are no elevators.

The resort as a whole was nice, though we only used the Volcano pool area and the bbq pit area. I used the fitness room - which was essentially a large universal gym, free weights, treadmill and step machine. This allowed me space to do my own cardio workout among the equipment.

My only concern was the temperature within the fitness room and my unit. Temperatures were unseasonable high ( 26 C with humidity it was 35C/ 78 F with humidity it was 93 F) and the fitness room was kept at 22 C/73 F - that made for a hot, steamy workout that fogged up the windows and a slippery floor! Also, we had an issue with maintenance coming in our unit to check smoke detectors, and winding up locking our temperature control on 22 C/73 F. When I called and the chief engineer came to our unit, he did lower the temperature for me, as we found it very hot to sleep at the original temperature. I was surprised that I was not allowed to set our own unit temperature, particularly when the temperatures were so hot and muggy outside. At least it was rectified when I asked.

Overall, it was a great stay. The location can't be beat, unless you stay on Disney property. It is just off the 535 and the entrance to Disney property is a 3 minute drive. There are plenty of restaurants and grocery stores nearby --- don't go to the Crossroads complex and Vinnings for groceries - there is a WinnDixie just the other side of the resort on 535 with fresher fruit/vegetables and overall better selections.

I have heard Cypress Pointe Resort and Grand Villas are under seperate management companies, so I am not sure how that will affect things - my understanding is Diamond Resorts is with the Grand Villas, not the Resort. Regardless, we will definitely be back again!!

Room Tip: If mobility is an issue, ask for a ground floor unit - there are no elevators.

We stayed at this resort through a timeshare in November 2011 and we don't have very many nice things to say about the facility. The couch was frayed and had a hole, the carpet was frayed, there were holes in the curtains, the couch was in the way of the door to screened in porch, the furniture was outdated, the televisions were outdated (with the exception of one in the small bedroom), the kitchen was poorly stocked (1 frying pain, 1 pot and 2 saucepans) and the dryer squeeled every time for the duration of the dry time. The "fitness room" had one treadmill, one stairstepper and a small universal machine. This facility was obviously recently renovated with regard to the tile, counters and bathrooms but the furniture and carpeting were old. Everything cost extra as well - 4.99/day for the internet, 1.00/day to use the unit safe and 11.00/day/person for transportation to Disney. I would not recommend this resort to anyone.

The location was good - right by Downtown Disney but was off of a very busy road.

Cypress Pointe was in a great location. The rooms were clean and spacious with three bathrooms. We had a choice of two pools that were very clean. I would recommend the resort as a first choice.

Cypress Pointe is well positioned in the Orlando area, minutes away from the Theme parks and within walking distance of a variety of restaurants and shops. The facilities are superb with a number of swimming pools, gym, poolside shops/cafe, basketball courts, putting etc. There are a selection of play areas for children, all with good quality, well maintained equipment.
The apartments are spacious and well equipped, and at various sizes are suitable for couples and larger families with children. This is an excellent resort and very easy to recommend.

Spent two weeks in Grand Villas in a two bedroomed unit in October 2011. Very impressed with the size and quality of the apartment and furniture. Spotlessly clean. Kitchen excellent with plenty of crockery, glassware and cooking equipment. Plenty of towels and pool towels provided. We didn't have housekeeping, but sheets and towels were changed after one week and fresh supplies of toiletries and washing up materials were left. Pools were lovely and clean. Location was great 10 minutes drive to Downtown Disney and plenty of restaurants, a Winn Dixie and Walgreens were in walking distance. Would love to go back!

Room Tip: No problems with noise but would ask for a pool facing room next time because our screened patio fac...
