Thumbs up Wyndham Cypress Palms

Just got back from a 2 bedroom unit at Wyndham Cypress Palms. The unit was clean, roomy, quiet. I've stayed in different timeshare units in the area and this one is one of the nicest. It is not so big that you get lost. There are many restaurants within walking distance. Round trip disney shuttle was only $3 per person. The times were convenient for us but keep in mind the latest was 9:30pm. But the earliest was 8am.
Our 2 bedroom had 1 king bedroom, 2 double beds room, living/dining/kitchen area, washer/dryer, screened balcony, 2 baths, one with whirlpool tub. Also a good size safe in the closet.
It was a little different from the other timeshares in that there was a midweek "tidy up". Clean towels were provided, beds were made with existing sheets and trash was removed. Of course if you needed towels or trash removal earlier than that you could do it yourself. We did not have to straighten up the unit when we left or strip the beds as I expected. Check in was quick and easy. There was no pressure to buy a timeshare and no annoying telephone calls. We paid for internet service for the week, it was an outside provider and at times the connection was "iffy". Drive to most of disney was about 15 minutes and the traffic was not a problem for us at this time of year.

We paid by the week and it was about $30 for 7 days. You can get plans with less days but that worked for us.

Glad you had a great time at this resort. It is my kids favourite due to the friendly activity staff. They really go the extra mile with kids.

Thumbs up Nice surprise tucked away from the hustle & bustle

Lovely resort in the heart of Orlando. Pleasantly surprised as I was a little concerned due to some of the "negative" reviews on the internet.

The Unit(s): We requested a renovated unit with Kizzy at the front desk prior to our arrival and that is exactly what we got They are very accommodating. We were in building 11 units 162 & 163. The units are completely carpeted with tile in the "wet areas" (foyers, kitchens, bathrooms, master suite vanity area & laundry closets). We had a 2-bedroom lock-off unit, which was nice being that we had my grandparents with us. The two units are accessible via an inside connecting door that we had opened so that it would not feel as if we were in 2 separate units (you have the option to leave the lock-off door closed/locked). The larger 1-bedroom unit had a fully functional kitchen with new appliances and granite countertops (nice touch ) & a dining room with a VERY nice solid wood dining table with seating for 6. There was a large living room w/ a large flat screen TV, ceiling fan, sleeper sofa & separate chair. There was plenty of seating in the living room for all 5 of us to relax together. Off of the living room is a nice screened porch that seats 3 people comfortably. There is a stackable washer/dryer combo in a hall closet in the foyer of the apt. The bedroom has a very comfortable king-size bed with very nice & comfortable bedding. There is a ceiling fan, flat screen TV on top of a 5-drawer dresser & sitting chair. There is a vanity area with a sink and granite counter top with a large soaking jetted tub . Off of this vanity area you can access a separate bathroom with a stand-alone shower, toilet & pedestal sink. This bathroom is also accessible from the main living area, which makes for a nice feature to keep from having to go through the master bedroom to get to the bathroom/toilet area for guests. The smaller 1-bedroom unit had a small living/dining room and kitchenette. There is a separate bathroom with a tub/shower combo and a separate vanity area with 1 sink. There is a king-size bedroom with a ceiling fan and the same dresser/TV as described in the other king-size bedroom. Overall, a nice layout and comfortable unit.

PROS: Set away from the hustle & bustle of Orlando, but yet only about 12-15 minutes away from Disney! The pools were never crowded. The last Friday we were there, me and my daughter were the only two at the main pool and that was nice. The playground was nice for the kids; the slide/climb area was covered! Nice BBQ areas. The grounds were nicely manicured. Renovated units including granite counter tops & new furniture & decor. Ceiling fans in the living areas and bedrooms (this is a must have feature for resorts in Florida!). Washer/dryer combo. Jetted soaking tub. The best of all, VERY NICE COMFORTABLE BED & DUVET BEDDING! That definitely takes the cake on the pros!!

CONS: When we 1st arrived there were 2 broken hangers and the duvet down cover had been washed so it was lumpy. I called the front desk and within 30 minutes all was taken care of and replaced. At the end of our stay, we did ask them to clean the carpets after we left for the next guests as the carpets turned the bottom of our feet/socks black when walking around without shoes on. The washing machine squealed loudly on the spin cycle, however, easy fix and they were very prompt in fixing anything that we reported that was not in working order. All in all, after staying at many different resorts in the Orlando area, this is not bad and they are small, fixable issues

I have tried to capture everything in this review I was looking for when I was checking out Cypress Palms for our family vacation. I hope this helps you with your decision about staying at Cypress Palms. Have a great vacation!!

This is what concerns me. How can they be renovating these units and not replace or at least CLEAN the carpets? We will be there in less than three weeks. I'm looking forward to it, but I just can't tolerate filthy carpets.

Yes, free Wifi in the rooms, using it right now. I'm here at Cypress Palms. They will give you a password when you check in.

Thank you! I would love to know what you think of the resort. Trying to finalize my January trip and can't decide where to stay.
