“Stay here only if you have no other options or a big discount!”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

We planned a girlfriend getaway and purchased this from Groupon at a great rate...checked the website and it looked good. Let me say pictures looked better than reality. The first room we booked looked like something out of 1970's! Old furniture smelled kind of funny and the table leg in living room was broken. We asked for a more updated room and they did accommodate with no questions asked.

The new room was much better but had a patch missing from the carpet. There was never any turn down service and we had to call in order to get more towels. The furniture was super uncomfortable! Hard as rocks! We had a two bedroom and the king bed was quite comfy but the two twins were horrible!

The amenities were nice. Mini golf was cute and it had plenty of pools...very clean outdoors and pool chairs were neat and clean. The mart which delivers to the room only after 5pm was awful!!! Hamburgers tasted like cafeteria patties, sandwiches had old bread and packaged meat. Don't order anything from the mart!!!

I will say it is in a prime local..plenty of restaurants and right around the corner from Downtown Disney. This place is fine if your not staying in te room much and get a great price.

Room Tip: Make sure you request an updated room.

Timeshare resort...This hotel was very clean, spacious and great value. The villa was updated with a great bed, jacuzzi and stand up shower and had a fully functional clean kitchen. Close to everything. Grocery store, restaurants, shopping and disney. The value was unbeatable for location. Definately stay again. This is a timeshare, so they will more than likely set up an appointment. Definately worth going too, no high pressure sales. I decided against it, but received two more nights for a future stay and $100 back on my visa!!! The presentation took an hour.

Room Tip: The pools were clean and quite large. No restaurant on site but many were close by. The shower head...

the 1 bedroom was small, well the suite was small, the bedroom was ok, the bathroom large. if you have to pull out the sofabed you lose the whole suite area... no, really, all of it.
we got a groupon for this so it was 200 for 3 nights so that was ok, but paper thin walls, its noisy at all hours, and the apply a lot of pressure to buy the timeshare, if you want to sleep past 8am, unplug the phones, they will call you, then they will call your cellphone if you dont answer, they will call the room every 5 minutes until you answer to get you to go to the timeshare sales pitch...

overall, I would probably stay here again IF I get another good deal on it. I will be looking elsewhere...

Room Tip: get the 2 bedroom, the 1 bedroom is claustrophobic... seriously.

At the moment, the entrance to Cypress Pointe Resort Grande Villas II is undergoing construction of a new welcome center, which is making parking almost impossible after everyone comes back from the area parks. Contractors are taking up about 10 spaces or so with work vehicles, dumpsters and materials. In addition, you then find out that most of the people at the maintenance shop were parking their personally owned vehicles in the spots for guests. All in all - don't plan to park near the place you are staying.

Be aware that the free welcome packet you are told about also comes with a high-pressure sales job. The concierge, as they are called, will try and talk you into a 90 minute sales presentation on how wonderful it is to belong to Diamond International. Just decline and walk away.

The rooms are full equipped with dishes and silverware, so a trip to the nearby Winn-Dixie just north is very convenient so you don't blow all your money on restaurants. There are a couple of nice pools to hang around at, and a small mini-golf course that might help you pass time.

No free wifi in a resort!?! It's 2012 people, get with the program. There is wifi available for a charge of charge of $4.99/day. with a maximum of 4 devices per payment.

Be aware that you should plan to add 15-20 minutes to your trip if you are trying to get onto I-4 from Vineland Apopka Road anytime after 8:15AM. The area near the Downtown Disney entrance causes backups all the way back to Lake street in the morning. Make sure to get over to the right lane as soon as you possible can.

Overall, it's a nice place if you are looking for a place to use as your landing spot for the area attractions. If you are a bit more high-maintenance, you might choose something ranked a bit higher in the list.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room facing the pool area on a high floor.

We booked our time share late so we didn't have much to chose from. Front desk check-in staff were ok but not as friendly and pleasant as they could be. After check-in we were directed, practically escorted to another desk area to pick up our guest complimentary passes which was just a way to get you to sign-up for their sales pitch to buy more timeshare points.
They advertise a fitness center which I wouldn't call it that. One treadmill, and 3 eliptical machines which 2 were in the corner broken. What I was really disappointed with was the one bedroom. First we stayed in a puke green building. The front door to the rooms are all dinged. You walk-in and there is a sleep sofa in this very dark kitchen with a TV on the wall. It was very depressing walking into this unit. The bedroom was OK with the balcony. However the balcony is soooo small and because of the design of the building you can only see straight out and nothing to the sides as it is just walls. The weather was perfect to keep the slider open a night however being next to the mini golf people gathered there at all hours and talked. Had to call the front office 3 nights as this area was suppose to close at 11pm. Security did come each time and ask the people to leave. Bring ear plugs if you want a good night sleep. The bathroom area is a good size, nice shower and little window in the bathroom for light. The TV in the bedroom had very poor quality, very snowy. Go for a 2 bedroom as I was told they are incredibly nicer. Pool area was OK. The grounds for walking were not good. It was not kept up. Dead brown leaves everywhere - on the grass, around the shrubs, no flowers. The location to Disney is great - however if I go again I will stay at one of the Marriots. The Grande Vista which I have stayed before was our first choice but not available. Check that out before you stay hear. The extra fee with interval is worth it.

Room Tip: For quite nights stay away from the pools with the mimi golf. Get a 2 bedroom.
