What We Love

- 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

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
We had a great time when we stayed here for a second time. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The place is one of our favourite places to stay, it's a great location and a nice fun resort. We will definitely be back.
I've stayed here for the last 2 years on a getaway through our time share and will NEVER stay here again. First, the "'marketing" people feel the need to call your room several times during the week to see if you "need anything", and continue to call if you don't answer. The security staff apparently does not have to adhere to the instructions on the notice they put on your room to not have the Do Not Disturb sign on your door so they can post some safety notice in your room. Instead, they ignore the sign and pound on the door multiple times just to switch out a piece of paper on the door. Check out day is Saturday for timeshare participants. Why can't they do it then. When I walked to the front desk to complain to the manager because the FOURTH time they decided to bang on the door I had had enough the manager was rude and unapologetic but assured no one would disrupt our stay again. 15 minutes later ANOTHER security person basically shoved his way in my room while I'm trying to respect that my roommate is sleeping. You couldn't pay me enough to stay here ever again!
From the minute we checked in, the staff was nothing short of remarkable. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was everything we needed it to be. We brought food back from dinner and dtopped by the desk to request some disposable utensils, instead the had real silverware delivered to our door. We knew up front that houskeep was not an every day thing before we checked in, so that wasn't an issue as some people complained about. The bed was firm but comfortable enough to sleep in without any issues. The layout of the room was also something we knew about before hand so having the large bathtub (which was big enough for both my husband and I to enjoy together) in the middle of the room wasn't an issue either. We didnt participate in any of the activities they offer, we were out in town the whole time but the pool and game room looked entertaining had we chosen to use them. The ONLY thing I can complain about is the lack of parking. We are night owls so by the time we got back to the resort, usually between 11pm - 2am, the parking was full. We had to park on a curb and hope that we wouldn't be towed while we were sleeping. If you're going to back by 9 or 10 you shoulder have many issues finding a spot. Overall, this has been the best stay we've found so far and we will be back.
