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
Perfect location for all the parks and Disney Springs! More than enough room for our family of five, and beautiful rooms. You are also very close to groceries and any kind of food you can imagine without going out into any crazy traffic!
Resort was impeccable and exceptional! In over 30 years of staying at resorts this was one of the nicest we've every experienced. Resort staff were impressively responsive, condos were huge, clean, and beautiful, and pools/hot-tubs inviting. We reserved two 3 bedroom condos for our family over Thanksgiving week and had asked that they be close together. We received two approximately 20 feet door-to-door. When we return to Orlando this will be the resort we stay in.
Great place!!! Great location, close to all the parks and Disney Springs. Nice and clean and quiet. Staff very pleasent and helpful. Nice grounds and pools. Large rooms with screened balcony. Nice to just relax!!
The. WiFi. Is. Garbage. So if you are the type of person that likes to use your phone/laptop for any reason what so ever, you will be having a hard time. It took me 15 minutes just to write this review.
If you need a place to stay that's easy to get to WDW (in particular) or Sea World, Universal, etc, this is the place; we were at Epcot in 10 mins without needing to go on the I4. And there are a TON of restaurants within a few blocks that were easy to walk to....not having to drive for supper was awesome, and being able to walk to Winn Dixie for a few grocs was great.
We stayed in a 3 bdrm / 3 bath suite; 2 of the bedrooms had attached bathrooms and all were very large. The kitchen had a full size fridge, microwave, dishwasher. Large living room with lots of seating and a screened balcony attached. Also had washer and dryer in the unit. Great water pressure in the shower. All in all it was a nice clean unit; we were all very pleased.
The overall grounds were also well maintained, with a nice pool/deck area and hot tub, and a place to get food. Right across the street was a sister resort with a small general store and a great little bar where you could also get food.
I saw lots of other comments about parking issues, but we had no problems at all, regardless of the day or time of day.
Overall, great place.
Only negatives were:
-complete lack of recycling
-they weren't willing to play ball when it came time to negotiate a price after the Interval time-share sales pitch; we showed up ready to buy, but the price they offered was pretty ridiculous
