We booked today too thanks to the OP. We stayed there last year and really enjoyed it. You are about 2 blocks from the DTD entrance/Crossroads. The pool was nice, but the volcano area can get chilly. They were right next to a Winn-Dixie and there was a small strip mall in front with several resturants. The only one I remember off hand was steak and shake.

The room was really nice with a full kitchen, living room/ dining area, and it had a master bath with shower and jetted tub. The 2nd bedroom had 2 twin beds and there was a full bath right outside the door. There was a stacked washer/dryer so we came home with clean laundry. I think last year we paid right at $100 a night with tax, so this is an even better deal and we thought last year was a great deal!

We just dropped our rate in October from $510 for 5 nights to $217. I love this web site. It looks like the rooms are in the Grand Villas which are very nice. The rooms are very large. The buildings surround 2 swimming pools and a mini golf. The Volcano pool is a short walk across the street. It has 3 small slides going into the pool but they are not actual water slides. We found the on site deli (by the pool) decent and very reasonable. The location is excellent with a ton of dining options close by and as someone said before, a Winn-Dixie next store. They also had some children and adult activities but as far as we could tell they did not offer any transportation but I always rent a car so I didn't pay much attention.

Wow! This is outstanding. I hope it's legitimate and doesn't get canceled due to being a mistake on the website. I did find that if you put in 2 people, then the 1 bedroom comes up. If you put 2 adults, 2 children, the 2 bedroom comes up. If you enter 4 adults, 2 children, the 3 bedroom comes up. I tried entering 4 adults, and 3 children, and it said no availibility, even though I know the 3 bedroom sleeps 8. See if this helps to get the other bedroom options to come up.

I needed dates through Jan 2, 2007, but could only get through Dec 31, 2006 to come up, so I went ahead and booked it. I figure I'll try to add the other 2 nights later, or maybe just Priceline a hotel for the last 2 nights. It averaged to about $31 a night for the 3 bedroom. This is a steal!

Thanks to the OP for the info about how to book it.

Looking again, I'm not so sure it could be a mistake because it does say "special rate!" in the header. :thumbsup2

I'm going to book it tomorrow and hope that it's still available!! What a savings!! I hope there is no timeshare presentation involved!! I'm just wondering if anyone knows the diff between a 2bedroom and a 2 bedroom suite? Thanks!

Well, I just booked May 17 through May 23 for a total of $233.04 at Cypress Pointe. The Grande Villas were not available for those dates. :cool1: :cool1: :banana: :banana: :cool1: :cool1: I have never been there but the reviews sound pretty good. What is a good building to request and what floor? Thanks!

I just booked too -- couldn't resist this great deal! We're already going to be in Orlando from 10/28 - 11/4 staying in a 1 bedroom at Vacation Village Parkway thru Skyauction, so I booked us at CPV in a 2 bedroom for 10/22 - 10/28 for a total of $233.04. WHAT A DEAL!!!!

Go to Sunterra.com. It is their featured destination this month. You will see it right in the middle of the page and you can find pictures and virtual tours. My parents belong there. It is very nice.

I just called down there and according to the front desk there is no additional fees such as resort fees but you are required to attend a 90 min. timeshare presentation. I got the 2 bedroom interior in July for $182 the first night, $14 for nights 2 thru 5. Has anyone attended one the their timeshare presentation? How pushy are they?

For anyone who has purchased this offer...does it say anywhere that you have to attend the presentation? I went to the page where I put in my info and did not see it anywhere.

i put 2 adults and 2 children (should be 4 adult and 2 children) then i realized that after i submit, i called onetravel customer service and she said it's okay, 2 bedroom can occupy 6 persons (after confirming with cypress pointe)

now for the timeshare presentation, can someone explain me about it? :confused3
i want to go on vacation and have fun :teeth: not to attent a presentation

Nowhere on my ressie does it say that I must attend the presentation.

I had originally booked CP thru Hotel Kingdom back in Feb for a total of 1285.00 ( 3 bedroom for 8 nights). When I saw the onetravel rate on here, I booked it yesterday since I had 48 hours to cancell with no penalties. I emailed Hotel Kingdom, and they said they couldn't match the rate because the Onetravel rate required a 90 minute presentation, thiers did not.

I noticed on the bottom of my ressie with one travel it said to call to verify room occupancy, so I called and since we have a party of 7, she said we were fine with which ever section we were given.
So I cancelled my Hotel Kingdom ressie, and kept the one at One travel, I saved about $900 dollars, totally worth a 90 minute presentation to me.

I logged back into my reservation to see if there is mention of a timeshare presentation and the note at the bottom of my reservation says "A request has been submitted to CANCEL this booking on 4/24/06". It certainly wasn't submitted by me so we'll see how things work out. I suspect that this was a typo or they're going to amend the terms to include the timeshare presentation.

ETA: When I logged back onto the onetravel.com website and tried searching my exact dates Cypress Pointe came up at $149 a day for all the dates of my stay. I think they're going to use their escape clause on this deal!

Congrats to those who go this great rate. I entered some December dates last night as well as this morning and the great rate showed up.

I just checked again and it looks like the rate has been pulled. I checked many dates in December as well as different numbers of adults/children and I can only find very HIGH rates now!!!

I would also like to know if there is a timeshare presentation involved. If so, I'll have to pay more and stay somewhere else because I don't want to do a timeshare presentation. Been there, done that. Don't want to go through that again!

I just got the same email as well. Does that mean we have to wait a few more days or that they are not going to honor the price? If not, I need to go back to my original plans. Thanks!

It doesn't look like they are honoring it based on the email and the fact that it says we have no current ressie.

Also received the email. I guess it was a pricing mistake, although I'm pretty sure I've seen people post about Cypress Pointe through SkyAuction for a price comparable to this, so there was a chance that it was valid. I'll just stick with my original reservation elsewhere.

I just got done talking with Onetravel on the phone. They did confirm that they could not get the reservation. I asked what happens to all the information that we put in, such as cc # and they said it is purged from there system. I hope that is true and that this wasn't some sort of scam :sad2: I guess I'll just keep looking. :surfweb:

How long did it take to receive the email that they couldn't receive confirmation from the hotel? I ask because I had a problem with my billing address, and I got an email telling me to contact them. I sent an email to servicing, and got an email back telling me my reservation was fine, but just need hotel confirmation. That was several hours ago, and I haven't received any notification that my reservation would be cancelled. As a matter of fact, I just logged in to the "check reservation" at onetravel.com, and my reservation is still there, and says an email confirmation will be sent shortly. My dates are not until Nov/Dec. Do you think that made a difference, or has it just not been long enough for them to cancel it?

chrisann
04-24-2006, 08:59 PM
my res. was for October, when did you make it? Maybe if you made it early enough, it slippied through their system. If that's the case, congratulations!!

04-24-2006, 09:19 PM
I made the reservation after some of the others posted about the great deal. It was probably 10:30 or so this morning, nearly 12 hours ago. I just wondered if the folks who got the email had made the reservation over the weekend or this morning. I'm going to remain hopeful that maybe having to go through servicing saved my reservation! We stayed at CPGV through skyauction our first trip 2 years ago, and tried to get it again when we went in the fall. It has become so popular that it doesn't seem to come up on skyauction at all anymore. When I saw the deal I thought that maybe they were just using a different clearing house, since my price is comparable to what I paid on skyauction. It is a great resort, so I am excited about the possibility of staying again.

I still haven't received the cancellation email but when I log into my reservation, using the reservation number, near the bottom right hand side it says that a request to cancel the booking was received on 4/24/06. I made my reservation late Sunday night.

Thanks for the info. My reservation still looks good, no cancellation request showing on the reservation itself, and I have not received the dreaded email notice yet either. I called my credit card company, but they have not charged my account yet so I guess it is still up in the air.

I received the cancellation and I'm sick of these companies offering great deals and then cancelling once they rope you in (hoping you'll book on there site anyway). I thought Wal Mart was above this but I guess I was wrong.

I still didn't get the email, but now I see the "request to cancel" message on the reservation itself. It wasn't there a few hours ago, so I guess the email won't be far behind.
