We have stayed at most of the top resorts in Orlando over the years from the Ritz, to JW Marriott, the main hotel at Grand Cypress, Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Rosen, Caribe Royale, and many others.
We keep coming back to the Grand Cypress Villas because it is just such a beautiful, relaxing place that is also well located. This is easily our favorite place to stay in the Orlando area.
We just got back from another trip here and got tremendous rates through Perfect Escapes that included full breakfasts! The club suites are very nice, but can't compare with the 1 or 2 bedroom units that are much, much larger with full kitchens and dining rooms.
I will say that this time we noted that a few more repairs needed to be made in the units, the landscaping was not as lush, some of the staff was not quite as good as in the past. But nothing was bad and so many things are fabulous here: the grounds, golf course, clubhouse restaurant, the pools and they are not crowded at all and it is so much more relaxing than the other resorts. The free pitch and putt golf is a nice amenity, as is the pond with sailboats and the bikes.
It is tough competing during this recession, and Hyatt should step up their efforts to maintain standards, but take it from me: this place is top notch!

Recently stayed at a one bedroom villa at the Villa's of the Grand Cypress for a week, due to a business conference at a nearby resort.  

Bottom line:  Upscale.  Above average price for Orlando.  Well worth the value.  Away from the hectic pace of the regular resort parks.  Quiet / boring at night.  $300/night.    

Location:  Only 5 minutes away from the entrance of the Disney World resort parks.  Travel from Orlando airport is easy and situated in the midst of the immaculate grounds of a golf course.  

Amenities:  Fully stocked kitchen (bring your own food) with an induction range, microwave, dishwasher, full fridge, etc.  Two TV's, large doors leading to the three exterior patios, large soaking tub, full shower, couch, full dining room, etc.  The pictures from the website matched identically with the place I stayed.  The staff informs you they recently renovated, and it sure looks nice.  

Price:  Great, and well worth it.  Discounted conference cost at a Disney resort was $200.  For $50 more, I got a full villa, washer/dryer, kitchen, space and most of all quiet.  If I wanted to partake in the kiddie aspect of a resort, a short shuttle ride to the Hyatt with their water slides, grotto pools, hot tubs, arcade, fitness club, lake, kayak, paddle boats, etc. were already included in the price.

Food:  Room service food was decent but paled compared to the quality of the food served at the clubhouse.  The clubhouse fare was good, and appropriately priced.

Staff:  Upon arrival, you are greeted at the entrance checkpoint by very nice gate guards.  The doorman holds open the door and you are warmly greeted by the reception staff.  Once checkin is complete, you are lead to your villa and shown where everything is and what is available.  The maid service is extremely good, turning down the bed, cleaning up after tired travelers, and keeping everything stocked.  Room service is punctual and quickly provide what you want.  The shuttle service is professional, prompt with always less than a 5 minute wait but limited to the Hyatt grounds.  

Would I stay here again?  Definately.  Anywhere else in Orlando?  No.

SUCH the awesomest business trip accomodations!!  =D  I stayed in a 2-bedroom villa with my coworker for three nights, and we had a great time gossiping about the sales guys and ordering room service because we were too zonked to go out and forage for food.  For the remaining 2 nights, I stayed in a Club Room.

minus ONE STAR because the fitness facilities (i.e. gym) are located in the main Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, which is 1.5 miles away.  The courtesy shuttle doesn't really make up for it.  But the upside is that there are jogging trails around the golf course.

The hotel seems pretty close to Disney World.  I estimate it's probably just a few blocks away!  They have a really great shuttle service!  My coworker arrived at around midnight, and a shuttle took him off-grounds to grab some dinner!  That ain't yo' mama's kinda service, know what I mean?

People probably rarely say anything like what I'm about to say, but the accomodations and the great service (shoutout to Burney!) made me not want to go home!!  Hahahaha.

One of the best golf courses in the area and can probably compete on a national scale. They host a lot of golf championships here and takes a big crowd of avid golfers. The equestrian center is also world-class and the villas are not bad either.

This place has been around for the past 20 years, so it's got that laid back resort feel without all the hoopla, and a good place to really just chill out.

If I ever come back to Orlando, this place will definitely be one of my top choices. My family and I stayed here for 5 nights. We stayed in a villa with two double beds. There are five of us in my family so we needed to make sure that the fifth person had something to sleep on. Our room was perfect because in addition to the double beds, there was a pull out sofa. The room was clean and housekeeping came everyday to tidy up without us even asking (some hotels I've stayed at didn't bother cleaning our room unless we asked). There was a big plasma tv, skylight over the soaking tub, rainfall type shower, double vanity with tv, and a spacious private balcony. If you want to escape the heat, there's air conditioning. If you want to go for a dip in the pool, pass up on the pool at this resort and go to the huge, fun pool across the street at the Hyatt Regency. They allow you to use their pool as long as you're a guest at the Villas of Grand Cypress. The staff here was attentive and they stopped to say "Hi" or wave when my family and I was roaming the grounds. This place is beautiful. I just wish they had laundry facilities for guests who stay for quite a while.

They have a great format, as many resorts do, where you can get a place that suits your acomodation needs from 2 to 20.  This place is well laid out and you can walk to  play some of the best golf around with an incredible practice facility.
What is fantastic is that the Villas are situated so it feels like you are in some far off place, but close enough to attractions to make it simple.  Every single person I encountered was friendly and helpful in an elegant manner.
This place is perfect for a locals get away, an incredible golf vacation or the Family that wants to do Disney while still maintaining some semblance of reality.

Service is great with very helpful people at front desk, in housekeeping, bell staff and the restaurants.

Room is ok but not great. Could use an upgrade bad!! Has strange living room where you can't really watch tv. Balcony with view of golf course is nice. Rooms are clean and nice size. Bed uncomfortable like mattress is old.

Does it compare to any of the nicer hotels or resorts at which I have stayed? Absolutely not. Ifs it likely better than most things in Orlando? Yes.

Needed to make it truly earn the 4 stars:
- upgraded furniture and carpeting
- Better food choices on site

On our Disney trip I wanted to sleep away from Mickey and picked Grad Cypress.  What a great decision.  The staff was excellent and helpful from the moment we pulled the car into the drive.  A few things that I wish I had known that I will share with the yelp readers.  The cool box in the room, unless you are storing milk, is great for sodas and water.  Keeps things cold.  The restaurants all close at 10pm, including the bar.  Room service was very good and the woman who made our dinner actually brought it to the room.  The main reason to stay here is the POOL, it is to die for.  A whole afternoon was spent there sleeping and swimming.  There is a quiet area that is almost exclusively adults.  Do not miss this resort.  When we go back to Orlando this is where we will stay.

This was out first visit to Orlando.  Our vacation was a Disney vacation, but we could not convince ourselves to stay in the park.  Tiny rooms for big prices.  We had a total of 5 adults (parents/grandparents) and two children.  We really wanted to stay together.  After a mind numbing search I found The Villas at Grand Cypress.  All I can say is WOW!  It's a beautiful facility, not far from the parks.  The staff was outstanding...My son called the concierge for hot chocolate for the Keurig and it was delivered to our villa in a matter of minutes. The Villas themselves were really nicely done and very comfortable.  We might not go back to the parks, but we will go back to the Villas at Grand Cypress.

How on earth did this place get such high ratings??? It's completely run down.  They should take some of the money they put into the very well kept golf course and put it into clean up the accommodations.  The villa we were in were disgusting and filthy.  There was obvious water damage on the walls and ceiling. BUGS alive and dead everywhere.  Wild  I honestly felt like I could not walk around without my flip flops on.  We stayed at a Disney property the first couple days of our trip and I'm so sorry we moved.  The only upside to place is the fact you can over to the Hyatt grand cypress and use their facilities.  They also had free booze in the lobby for those of you that drink. The only people I can picture staying here would be a bunch of guys on a golf trip that really don't care about where they sleep.

45 holes of golf, great staff members, solid 19th hole, fully stocked golf shop, nice practice facility, and a near perfect setup for big tournaments.  Grand Cypress has a very solid reputation and rightfully so.  They have it all.  I've never stayed at the resort as a guest, but I can tell you that the golf experience is as good as it gets.  Whether you are in town visiting, or a local golfer, you've got to check this place out.

I have to agree with Darlynn, this is by far a hidden gem.
We stumbled upon this place by checking expedia while driving to Orlando.  Reviews were good and we got an awesome deal.

It's gated and the security will welcome you by name each and every time you drive in.  
They supply bikes for you to ride around and enjoy the resort.  We were kicking ourselves for forgetting our clubs at home.
Our next visit and yes you can bet there will be many more visits to this location we are sure to carry our clubs along.

Just so relaxing, quiet and they make you feel as if you are the only guest staying with them.

Recently held a event at the Villas of Grand Cypress for our top clients, executive team and partners. With such an exclusive guest list, the venue had to please and the VGC exceeding all our expectations. Every single staff member went out of their way to meet our needs and we received nothing  but compliments from all of our attendees. This gorgeous property has everything going for it - locations, generous accommodations, luxurious appointments, first class service, amazing food - -  I highly recommend it for your next visit to the Orlando area.

This is really a great resort. Its well laid out, the staff is very friendly, and its gated with controlled access.

The Villas themselves are dated on the interior. The decor is a throwback to the 80's with some 90's updating thrown in here and there. But if you are ok with that you will see the Villas are maintained well, they are very clean and offer many options for small to large groups or families.

We got a two bedroom townhouse setup that was the size of many peoples homes. The price for our 4 night stay was less than many local hotel ROOMS. We had our own two bedroom townhouse on a golf course. Of coarse all the amenities of a nice hotel are here too. Such as daily maid service, room service, etc.

I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for something a little more relaxing on their next trip to Orlando.

I had to go to Orlando for a conference and was really dreading it! DREADING IT!
I'm have been to Orlando a few times for work and it always seems to be hot, humid and full of cranky kids.
So, I planned this trip to arrive as late as possible, and to leave as early as possible.
Staying 2 nights.
So, I arrive late. It's not far from the airport really... maybe a 15 minute drive.
Turn into drive, which is gated.
The security guard got my name and verified that I was due to check in.
I proceeded through the gate and it was DARK. Pitch black. Scary for me as a woman traveling alone because I had never been there before and I knew that my room was a 'villa' which means exterior entry.
That always makes me nervous.
So, I find the reception and again, it was very quiet and dark. It wasn't that late... maybe 930pm.
But this place is very residential, so it is really quiet after dark.
He greeted me by name and quickly got me checked in. The bellman took my keys and I followed him to the villa.
He explained to me where our meetings were and told me they would pick me up and take me to the conference center if I did not feel like driving myself.
I really could not see any part of the resort as we pulled up to the villa, which was set up like a typical condo unit.
I parked and we went inside.
It smelled as if it had just been built, which I love.
He showed me all the features and would not accept a tip... but I forced him. He made me feel comfortable in this dark, quiet resort.
There was a fridge, big TV with 3 HBO channels, Kuerig coffee maker, free wifi, and ICE COLD a/c. I cranked it down to 68 and damn near froze. I LOVED that!
I have attached photos so you can see how nice the villa was... the bed was so comfortable and that deep tub was relaxing after long days.
Started off each day with a quadruple head shower, and got ready watching the news in the bathroom.
At the light of day, I checked out my patio which looked over the golf course. The landscaping is very nice, plush and tropical.
It wasn't hot. September 4. Nice breeze and great temps!
I drove all around the resort and just soaked in the beauty of it all.
How can this place be so close to all that mouse madness???
Close to both outlet malls, close to Whole Foods for meals.
Great trip, which was unexpected. I really wanted to stay!  
I seriously felt like I was in a resort on Maui or something.
I sure hope to stay there should I visit Orlando again!

Beautiful golf course, great for any level, very welcoming staff, love love loved the entire experience! Didn't get a chance to try the food in the club house, and as usual, anything near Disney property is expensive ...Golf course cart service, $6;plus tip for a cup of coffee and Snickers bar. But oh well, that's a vacation! January weather was cool but golf course was green and perfecf!

Rarely do I want to give a place more than 5 stars. The Villas of Grand Cypress, however, deserves at least 6.

Just got back from our 3rd stay at the resort and have loved it each time. In the past, we just accepted that the accommodations while comfortable were a bit dated. No more! The recent room renovations have made the place GORGEOUS, comfortable and high-end. Just standing in the room, we felt pampered.

They excel at service too. Everyone who works there is friendly and helpful.

We go for golf and love it. The courses are well groomed and the greens are fantastic. The restaurant at the clubhouse is perfect for both pre-round breakfast and post-round lunch.

I can't end this review without mentioning that we see few kids at the resort. While this makes the resort even more perfect for us, if you're trying to craft the perfect vacation for kids, you may want to consider a hotel that caters more to the Disney crowd.

We'll go again for sure. Perhaps we'll see you there.

Wide open fairways, rolling hills, tough greens.  If you miss the fairway, you need lessons:)  This is a beautiful course but some of the greens were shared and not sure I really like that idea because sometimes you had to wait and couldn't tell which direction people were going.

What a difference a year made?  Last summer, we had our off-site here, and I gave them 4 stars for some small short-comings.  I'd heard that they'd spent a gazillion Brazilian reals giving it some face-lift, but what I experienced was still beyond the high expectations set by that news.  One of my (small) complaints last time was that it's not easy knowing which villa is yours even when you're in the general vicinity?  Maybe they heard me, but this time, a golf-carted staff not only leads your car to the right parking lot, but tells you definitively which is yours.  WiFi speed too slow last time - check, it's MagLev speed now.   JUST for me, because I griped about it last time, they put in a small but serviceable fitness room - brand spanking new, and never saw anyone else in there.  

Inside, everything was ... PEABODY!!  I swear: from the motion-activated night-lights to the TV in mirror, all the way to the toiletries, they've copied directly from the Peabody - only the ducks and the fountain are missing.  I'm not complaining, as they have really spared no expense.  The living space had always been more than palatial for non-suite abode (all with a sitting area outside when it's not too hot); they've upgraded all the furnishings and modernized them.  Is there anyone with the 18 iPod/iPads to plug in - you will NOT run out.  The bathroom is especially gorgeous, with both a garden tub and a walk-in shower equipped with a shower tower.  Turn-down service now includes orange-chocolate with valerian - all the better to help you snooze!  What will they think of next - caffeine-laced tooth paste to help you get up in the morning?

I'll need to post some pictures.  So how can I not hang a cinco on this gorgeous 'new and improved' place?  BTW - the staff went through renewed training too, it seems.

This review is for the New Course, a Nicklaus-designed tribute to the Old Course at St. Andrews. Unlike many American courses that bill themselves as links tracts, this is the real deal, in looks, feel and playability. Wail away at them tee shots laddies and then find what swale, hummock or pot bunker you now have to contend with. Huge, quick, sandy undulating greens, many of them double and with the ability to run up, really complete the experience. There's also a fine practice area with a great bunker for both greenside and fairway sand practice. The nineteenth hole is also comfortable with great drinks and food, including a very unhealthy but flavorful potato chips nachos. The New Course at Grand Cypress provides a great golfing experience.

This place exceeded my expectations!!!! The villa that my husband rented was modernized with nice decor. One of the coolest things was watching tv in the bathroom mirror when taking a shower. In addition, the service was impeccable. Housekeeping stopped by the room every single day to clean and change used towels. It was by far the most wonderful places I've ever been to in Orlando :)

We have 5 star resorts in Oregon but Villas of Grand Cypress take guest service to a whole different level.  A substantial recent remodel doesn't hurt.  Mirror TV in the luxurious bathroom so I didn't miss one second of the Olympics, 24 hour room service that was outstanding, beautiful view of the golf course  and  Disney World 10pm fireworks from my patio  which I wouldn't have known unless the nice young man (who drove me to my villa in a golf cart) had told me, He also explained the complicated but amazing shower as well as all the other amenities. The conference center was beautiful, the catered dinner on the veranda  excellent. Servers were extremely professional and well trained in every guest courtesy.  On my daily walks every employee greeted me with a smile and often asked if there was anything that would make my stay more pleasant and everyone was smiling (Would I like a ride, need anything in my room, etc)  The mission of the Villas is alive and well everywhere.  Well done. Very well done. Oregon could learn something.

I have had the pleasure of coming to this amazing resort for the last nine years for my January Sales Meetings.  The Villas are incredible.  Spotless, beautiful decor and five star service.  The last two years I had my own villa, and they both seemed new.  The shower, in particular, was great.  Perfect temperature and pressure.  Might be a small thing, but the smallest thing is sometimes what you remember.

The golf courses are not for beginners.  There is the New Course, based on the Old Course at St Andrews.  All the holes are the same.  I've played the Old Course, but, of course, since it's Florida, it's a little different from Scotland.  The last two years it was very cold, under 45F, so it actually did feel like Scotland.  Greens are fast, fairways wide, but there is trouble out there.  Overall, a very fun round of golf.  But, again, not for beginners, although this course, of the ones I play, is the easiest.

The North/South is killer.  You have to be very long off the tee and have a great iron game.  I'm not great at both, so I tend to struggle on this one, but try to stay around a bogey each hole, which really is the best you can do if you're not a single handicapper.

The North/East set up is hard as well.  The East has an island green, can't remember what hole.  Out of nine tries(or more) over the last nine years, I might have made it on three times.  Winds tends to be up, and you need a very tight iron game on the East course.

I'm not a bad player, but after playing the North/South/East courses, one can be very discouraged.  All are as hard as Bethpage Black, and the North/South are as long.  I would recommend a handicap of 15 or less if you expect to score.  If not, go out and have fun, but do not hold up play for the better players.  Pick your ball up after 5 strokes in the fairway and move on.  I did a number of times!

The Clubhouse Bar is fantastic as well.  Food and drinks are top notch.  Cool decor too.  A number of pro golf bags are hanging up as they host a number of tournaments here, especially the LPGA.

Total disappointment... For a new course there were no yardage markers in the fairways, no gps or placards with the layout of the holes.  The holes were on top of each other, the greens were very confusing, dual greens on most holes, and there were minimal facilities for basic needs like using the bathroom.  A huge disappointment for a NEW Jack Nicklaus designed course.  Won't play here again!

It's Scotland in Orlando...

Love this course as its significantly different than anything else in the area.   A links-style (lacks the shoreline and water views) Nicklaus design inspired by the Old Course in St Andrews.  In fact, holes 1 and 18 are an exact replica of those we've seen on TV (or played for those fortunate few) - complete with the Valley of Death fronting the 18th green.  Beware that holes 1,18, 9 and 10 come complete with a burn that's not visible from the tee and will swallow your golf balls.

The course has very few trees, a number of adjacent fairways, and double greens.  The double greens were a bit difficult to get used to as you have to play gold flags going out and white flags on the inbound side.  If you're not paying attention, wouldn't surprise me if some players hit to the wrong pin.  Other than the burn, there's not that much water on the course and a number of deep pot bunkers.  Note that the pot bunkers are TRUE bunkers and will cost you at least a stroke.  6-8 foot walls of grass with difficult lies and stances are common.  I believe I played laterally in every bunker I hit as there really is no other option.  Greens are real large (given that most have 2 pins) with a lot of undulation.

The course itself is not that hard as Orlando rarely has strong gusty winds and the fairways and greens are expansive. This is reflected in the USGA slope/rating.   Could be a slow round on crowded days as I can see where groups that spray their tee shots would be playing into oncoming traffic on other holes.  Was not a problem at least on the day I played.

All in all, a great and varied experience.  Given that most Orlando courses are all pretty much alike with water all over the place (especially the other 9s at Grand Cypress) I really enjoyed playing a different type track that one would not often see on this side of the pond.  The round here is expensive (well north of $100) but so are most of the other resort courses around this city.  Really appreciate this alternative.

Luv, Luv, Luv this resort. We came down for the NPE show at the convention center and because this is Spring Break we felt that this property would be quieter. It was and after a long day working... bliss. Since we were going to be here for 9 days, quiet and calm was a necessity. Nothing wrong with the resorts, but screaming kids running up and down the corridors is not conducive to early mornings and late work nights with a short amount of time for sleeping till the next day to do it all over again.

We initially had a room overlooking the golf course and moved into a room overlooking a pond which was simply stunning. The staff was incredible and told us to leave our luggage and they would move it for us. They also delivered our Fedex packages at the same time. .

The staff could not have been more accommodating or friendly. Being from Chicago it is always a hoot when everyone you see gives a friendly smile and a wave... especially when the city wave is unofficially the middle finger. The wild life is incredible, little cranes to big cranes and lizards... oh my :)

We loved that the room came with complimentary waters and a refrigerator. The room itself was beautiful as was the bathroom. We absolutely loved being able to sit on the patio in the mornings and evenings as it was so calming

Absolutely fabulous! From the moment we arrived, the staff made us feel welcomed and right at home. They go out of their way to make sure you're taken care of. By the fourth day there, I was so in love with this place, I didn't want to leave.

The villas you stay in are private and very luxurious. They spared no expense on the renovations. The bathtub is big enough for two people, the shower is incredible. It has the European shower tower that I made an excuse to use at least twice a day. :)
There is a tv in the mirror in the bathroom as well that's great to watch while putting your makeup on.
The bed is super comfortable.
The attention to detail is second to none.
They are so incredibly spacious, I think it said the one bedroom villa is around 1000 square feet. It's literally a home away from home with full sized kitchen with large refrigerator and also has a washer and dryer.  I absolutely recommend this property for families visiting Disney World. It's a bit pricey but worth every penny.
This will be the only place we stay from now on when we visit orlando. How did I not find it sooner?!

I've been going here for years and it's always been a consistently excellent experience with phenomenal customer service.

The Villas of the Grand Cypress is excellent if you want a quieter resort or you're looking to focus on golf.  While it works well for families, particularly with the villa layouts, I love that the pool isn't overrun with kids.

The amenities are amazing--- they renovated the bathrooms a few years ago and now have sleek showers with rainfall faucets, huge tubs, and nicely lit sinks (with TVs in the mirror, woop!).  Villas and bedrooms are great, nice layouts, and there isn't a bad view.  The gym is nice, and the pool is very peaceful and they bring by frozen grapes, cold washcloths, and other little treats throughout the day.

The customer service is superb; in the many times I've been hee, they truly treat every single person like they are a VIP.  It means a lot they they consistently want their guests to have a positive experience.  Most of the staff has been here years, indicative that it's just a nice place and they treat everyone well.

Proximity to Disney is great, and there's a free shuttle to the nearby Hyatt if you want access to more pools and activities.  The Room Service food is great (I'm obsessed with the coffee here), and the Club and Nine18 have awesome food, too.  I would absolutely recommend for a quick weekend getaway, or some time with your significant other or family that's tucked away yet allows access if you feel like going to the parks or other activities.
