We had a wonderful 3 nights here-marvellous villa and bathroom complete with hidden TV in our bathroom mirror, all in walking distance of pool and main clubhouse, the centre of events. The golf was amazing-45 holes including St Andrew's replica course, helpful buggy (cart) staff dressed in plus 4s, clubs etc all at hand ready to go, satnav in buggies, practice grounds and Academy brilliant. The staff without exception were friendly, helpful, fun, enthusiastic and seemed to be like one big happy family. I only wish I could remember everyone's names to mention all: Chris and Lauren behind the bar, Chevis in cart store, Stuart in pro shop, the manager and Chris wine waiter in Nine Eighteen and last but not least, Gareth, one of the drivers who helped us with suitcases when we left. He thought out of the box with helpful suggestions and even bothered to straighten a mat outside main reception while we were signing out! He typified the staff here. The 'pub grub' in the bar and on the terrace was first class and served cheerily and promptly. I can recommend too Yeunglings beer and the Stella Artois cider! In contrast, the Nine Eighteen restaurant, the 'fine-dining' alternative, was a little dull. The food was good and the service excellent, but to our (English) tastes, it gave the impression of trying too hard to be 'sophisticated' and didn't quite strike the right note for golfing parties on holiday. The restaurant was less than half full when we visited. In summary, a first class golfing centre with excellent golfing facilities but you will need taxis or a hire car if you want to see more of Orlando's attractions.

A beautiful location with elegant Villas that make you feel like you own a little piece of the Golf Course. Great staff along with fabulous amenities, and yummy fare. Our family felt special here, we will make this our second home when we vacation in Orlando.

We truly enjoyed our second stay at this lovely resort. From the first phone calls with reservations, we have been treated with courtesy and helpfulness. The food is delicious (try the Grand Marnier souffle) and the service is top-notch! We enjoyed the fitness room and the beautiful pool. Our room was conveniently located, quiet, clean and very comfortable. The staff members at the resort are helpful, professional and easily identified by name badge and neat appearance. We felt welcome and pampered and also secure. We really enjoyed the Golf Academy and the opportunity to play the 3-hole course by the Academy. The golf pro-instructors are outstanding. Observant and patient, they are skilled teachers who communicate effectively with students. We look forward to returning, taking more golf lessons and enjoying a restful stay at Villas of Grand Cypress.

With a resort that is beautiful, comfortable, private, renewing, lovely, convenient, quiet, clean, and comfortable, staff that is courteous, helpful, top-notch, professional, outstanding, observant, patient, and skilled, and a YOU that is welcome, pampered, and secure, I’d say your second stay with us at the Villas is something worth repeating! Let us know when you’re ready to schedule your next set of Academy lessons!

We live in Orlando and love to play golf and enjoy the great dining on the other side of town. We have been going to the Villas for years to play golf and dine. The rooms are wonderful and the service the BEST!!! We highly recommend this beautiful retreat.

Room Tip: We always stay in the Villas now because we love the extra room and are golfers.

We love our staycationers! What a great local travel tip for Orlando residents: why “go away” when you can “come away” and have a great weekend retreat right in your own backyard? See you soon!

We've stayed at the Villas a number of times over the years and keep coming back for more. It's a lovely place, quiet but near all the "action" of Disney world, minutes to the craziness of Interstate 4 and International Drive in Orlando. It's family-friendly but not overloaded with kids the way most hotels in the area are. It's a Hyatt property, and you can use the amenities at the Hyatt Regency two miles down the road (call the front desk for shuttle service between the properties).

It's a golf resort, but there's other stuff to do. Can rent bicycles and cycle the cart paths. Nice casual dining room, especially for breakfast. We had a "king club suite" the last time, so no kitchen, but the one-bedrooms and up have kitchens. A super find in central Florida!

Not an inexpensive place, but the rooms, people, service, etc. are all outstanding and well worth the price!

Room Tip: Lakeside rooms have a nice view but, there isn't a bad room in the place. If you're staying...

Like you, we love being right near all the Orlando action but remaining peaceful and relaxing on our property. While we are independently owned, we do share amenities and the Grand Cypress Resort grounds with the nearby Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. I can’t wait for your trips “over the years” to turn into many trips to come!

I purchased a 2 day "stay and play" package for my wife and I for Friday April 4th and Saturday April 5th. We teed of at 3:20 on Friday and quit at 6:00 pm after only 9 holes. I asked the pro shop if I could play the other 9 on Sunday before I checked out (hoping the slow paly was an exception) and they said fine (but no apology). On Saturday we teed off at 11:00 and finished 5 and 1/2 hours later. The overall property is beautiful. Generally, the staff was very nice. But, golf that takes that long to play is ridiculous. We never saw a ranger and the food/drink cart came by once (on number 9). Since we were starving we ordered sandwiches and they only had 1 left. Never saw the drink/food cart again. Since the back nine took another 2 hours and 45 minutes, that's a long time without some kind of sustenance! We skipped the 9 holes on Sunday for fear it would take another 2:45 minutes. I asked for a golf credit for a future stay, but was denied. So, my grade of "poor" is based on the slow play of the golf course and the seeming indifference to it by the golf staff.

Room Tip: Most, if not all, of the rooms are located with golf views. very nice.

We just returned from a week at the Grand Cypress Villas. We went to relax and play golf and it was great on all counts. We stayed in a one bedroom villa which was very comfortable. The limited closet and drawer space was our only complaint. The king bedroom units are suitable for one couple and perhaps a few children, definately not 2 couples since the only bathroom is in the master bath. Everything in the units is new, and the kitchen was well stocked. It was great to see that the $22 resort fee actually was worth it. It covered bike use, daily paper, and use of the driving range and the excellent practice facility which had 3 practice holes to play. The 45 holes of golf were great, and the staff couldn't have been nicer. There are 2 restaurants on site, one casual and one nicer. The grounds are serene and well manicured. We plan to return!

I’m so happy that you enjoyed your Orlando golf retreat here at the Villas of Grand Cypress! With a One-Bedroom Villa, two great restaurants, three practice holes to use, and forty-five holes of Jack-Nicklaus Signature Designed Golf, I’d say all the right numbers were played for a great stay!
