Cypress Pointe Resort
What We Love
- A studio or two-bedroom abode at a family-friendly Orlando resort, with admission to a wildlife parkSpending the day at Disney World, or wandering through the Wizarding World of Harry Potter
- Heading to the local outlets, performance venues or golf courses
- Splashing in the main pool’s water volcano, before gathering around the gas grill for a barbecue
What To Know
- Resort members get free WiFi but the connection is only available for two devices per room; if you're not a member, WiFi is extra
- There's a free mini golf course and two pools
- There are more guests than the parking lot can accommodate, it can be especially tough to find a spot at night
Choose your own adventure when based at Cypress Pointe Resort, a Diamond Resorts International stay. Will it be a tour of Hogwarts castle at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter? A visit to Cinderella Castle in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom? A high-stakes New York City chase, through the eyes of Spider-Man, at Universal Studios? A day of golf or shopping? Better yet, don’t limit yourself to just one – at this family-friendly resort, you can have it all.
With spacious accommodations, the getaway is convenient to the major theme parks and water parks, both of which are just a short drive away, as well as to many of the golf courses and outlets. Also nearby are performance venues, restaurants and the buzzing eateries and bars of I-Drive 360 and Pointe Orlando. But if you’re feeling lazy, you can always just stay put; there are children’s playgrounds, a fitness center, a game room and two sparkling pools – one with a water volcano and slide – on the property’s own grounds, for fun in the sun even closer to home.
Good to know
Please note that a resort fee of $6 (plus tax) per studio, per night is payable directly to the hotel. The resort fee includes parking for one car per room; mini-golf; ping pong; use of pools, hot tubs, barbecue grills, fitness center, business center and recreational facilities; boarding-pass printing; luggage storage; organized activities and coffee in the lobby until noon.
In addition, a $100 security deposit (by credit or debit card only; cash will not be accepted) is payable directly to the hotel. This deposit is fully refundable upon check-out and subject to a damage inspection of the accommodation.
Studios and accommodations
Accommodations are spacious and comfortably appointed, each housing at least one king bed and featuring a shower and Roman tub in the bathroom. If you opt for the two-bedroom option, which accommodates up to six, you’ll add on a queen bedroom and a sofa bed in the living room, plus air conditioning, a screened porch, a telephone with voicemail, a washer and dryer, a cable/satellite TV and a balcony, patio or terrace.
Disney? Universal? Don’t worry about picking just one – they’re both so close that you’ll have time for all the theme rides and attractions you could possibly desire. Also nearby are the shops of Premium Outlets and the Mall at Milennia. Restaurants and bars are scattered throughout the city, as are golf courses and water parks, while Cypress Pointe Resort’s own two pools, one with a water volcano and slide, may have you rethinking your decision to step out at all.
How to Get There
Rooms are ridiculous. there's no partition between the shower and bedroom. if you want to travel with your teenage kid be prepared to expose yourself to them. apparently that's not a big deal to this hotel. Hotel staff also says there's nothing they can do. Disgusting
The property itself is excellent--friendly staff, beautifully landscaped, excellent location, handy to restaurants, shopping, and 15-20 minute drive to Disney world parks. Also a very comfy bed. I would go back for a 2 or 3 bedroom, but cannot recommend the studio (which we stayed in). It is listed as being 480 square feet. It is 300 square feet at most (and that includes the closet and the screened in patio)--it's a small room that doesn't even have room for an armchair. (Note the photos on the resort website are taken from angles that exaggerate the size of the room). We had to bring in the 2 plastic chairs from patio in order to eat our takeout food. (Perching on a bed is not a good plan when eating pizza!). In addition, while well-outfitted for a hotel room (mini fridge, microwave, ironing board, safe) it does not receive daily housekeeping, and we ran through the provided coffee in a day. There was also only 1 set of towels each. For the same money we could have had at other resorts a proper hotel room with daily housekeeping or a full one-bedroom suite with full kitchen. So I *highly* recommend going elsewhere if you are in the market for a one bedroom or a hotel room; but this is a good choice if you want a 2 or 3 bedroom place. (I will admit that I am quite dismayed at the false advertising re room size--that doesn't look good on management).
The room was nice enough, but the walls were so thin, it was like my neighbors were in my room. I could almost hear them breathing. Additionally, they tried to get us to buy a timeshare right after we checked in by sending us to the concierge desk. They don’t clean your room during your stay, which means no clean towels unless you go asking for them, but they charge a resort fee. I would have had a nicer time at a chain like Best Western it Holiday Inn. Book this place with caution.
My wife and I decided to take our niece and her eleven year old to the mouse house ( Disney World ) in Florida. We stayed at the Cypress Pointe Resort which is within a stone throw of Disney World. The resort is well kept and clean from the front desk to the three bedroom suite we had for seven days.The beds were comfortable and cean as well as the bathrooms,the kitchen had all the conveniences one would need and enough basic supplies until you could get to a grocery store to purchase what you needed, there was a grocery store within walking distance.The swimming pool was heated and very large although the turned the heat off one day and it was not very comfortable for swimming. The hot tub did work well and the take out restaurant was five star quality. All the staff were very friendly and helpfull. The only problem we encountered was they advertise in the activities brouchure that they rent x box or a Wi when in fact they informed us they do not. Explain that to an eleven year old boy on a rainy day in Florida. Sooo we whent for a swim in a cold pool.
Close to all the major attractions in Orlando. Lots of restaurants nearby. Clean, large suites with room service available. In room laundry facilities allow you to travel with less clothes. Staff are friendly and helpful.
