    OK...so I'm checking out places to stay and was actually looking for something else on Walmart.com. I'm curious so I check out their vacation stuff and stumble across Cypress Pointe 2 bedroom- interior for only $187.00 for 3 nights (including taxes and fees) what the heck does that mean? that there are no windows? What's really strange is that it is $140 for the 1st night and only $14 for each additional night. Can anyone shed any light on this? :confused3

    Here's the info I got from Walmart's travel site!
    Cypress Pointe Resort
    Cypress Pointe Grandvillas combines the best of laid back Florida luxuriousness with the finest of fun for the family. Its near everything in Florida you might want to see, from Cape Canaveral to the wildlife refuges of the Everglades, while Disney World is practically next door. For beach life, you can choose between the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico. Youll feel rather spoiled for choice. In fact, youll feel spoiled rotten anyway -- and youll love it. As well as being superbly located, with all of Floridas main attractions right on its doorstep, Cypress Pointe Grandvillas is noted for its fine facilities. Youll find a large outdoor swimming pool with a central volcano, an outdoor spa and childrens pools, as well as a basketball court, shuffleboard court, tennis court, childrens playground, exercise room and games room. The resort also has a poolside cafe, a lakeside gazebo and barbecue areas. All units have full kitchens, television and video, and the master bedrooms feature a whirlpool bath or roman tub. The two-bedroom
    units have a washer/dryer. All the accommodations are decorated and furnished to the highest standard, and the larger apartments feature absolutely enormous televisions! All in all, Cypress Pointe Grandvillas is the perfect family holiday destination. After a hard day with the family in Disney World, or one of the other theme parks, you can come home and have a swim in the pool, and then just relax in absolute, first-class comfort.

    It seems ro good to be true. I am currently booked at Vistana, but this seems like a great deal, and they have gotten good reviews, that I have seen anyway. Do you have to do a timeshare presentation? TIA!!! :teeth:

    It clearly looks like a typo...the first night is $140 and the other nights they left off the 0. I wonder if they will honor it?

    Okay so I just called Cypress directly to ask what an "interior one bedroom is". They didn't really know. She said the one bedrooms in phase 1 are studios with microwaves and small fridges and the one bedrooms in phase 2 are like suites with the full kitchen. Hmmmmm. They did confirm it has windows (thinking cruise ship interior) LOL. If Walmarts policy has a 2 day cancellation period where you aren't charged, so I wonder if after booking I could call and see where I'm being put. you find out anything else, let me know. 241.96 for the week is an awesome deal!!

    more timeshare have outside doors - directly to outside. out your front door is outside.

    Disney has several that have open into a hall - not outside.

    I don't think Cypress Pointe does this - but I could be wrong?

    HMMMMMM... could be... I checked out the sunterra website and the cypress-pointe websites and it looks like if you have a balcony the main door would open to a hallway.

    Both Cypress Pointe resorts have all exterior entrance doors on covered but open hallways. I have never heard anyone refer to it as "interior" before. But as mentioned all units have windows and glass balcony doors so you don't have to worry about being stuck in a windowless unit!

    Yes, it's a $20 cancellation fee. Here's the policy:

    Regarding Your Hotel Booking
    Please note that this is a pre-paid reservation and your credit card will be charged the full amount at the time of booking. The amount is refundable, less a $20 cancellation fee, as long as you cancel your reservation in accordance with the hotel's individual cancellation policies or at least 72 hours prior to the scheduled check-in, whichever is most restrictive.
