Marriott's Cypress Harbor Resort

Reviewer's Name:

Alpha

Reviewer's Email Address:

alphawoman_wdw@hotmail.com

Date(s) of Stay:

October, 1998

Location:

Off Westwood Blvd., about 2 min. from Sea World and 10 min. from WDW.

Ease of WDW Park Access:

I don't believe there's a shuttle to the parks; we had a car and had no trouble getting to or from WDW and Sea World.

Address:

11251 Harbor Villa Road, Orlando, FL 32821

Phone Number:

(407) 238-1083

Facility Type:

Timeshare Resort

Accommodation Used:

Multi-Bedroom Condo

Accommodations Review:

2-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo with fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room, washer/dryer, screened balcony.  It was excellent! We loved Cypress Harbor. The rooms are spacious and comfortably furnished, and the property is beautifully landscaped and maintained.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

Family members traded their timeshare week for a week here. I believe the rack rate is $240/night.

# of Restaurants/Lounges:

Lounge; Pizza Hut pizza available. This resort is primarily a timeshare; as such, it doesn't have the number of restaurants a hotel would have.

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

Did not use

Activities/Facilities Available:

Lighted tennis courts, 3 outdoor pools, health club, whirlpools, lake with boating and fishing, sauna, bike rentals, children's play area, game room, activities room with daily events scheduled, gift shop/convenience store/deli, video rentals, pizza take-out or room delivery, golf course adjacent to resort.

Pool Description/Comments:

We visited 2 of the 3 pool areas, and both were interestingly designed and beautiful. They're connected by a boardwalk that spans the resort's lake. One pool (adjacent to the lounge) had a bubbling shallow end and a volleyball net across the pool for water volleyball. The other pool had a waterfall and lanes for lap swimming. Both were large. Both pool areas had hot tubs, separate children's pools, plenty of adjustable chaise lounges, and some tables with chairs

Amenities Provided:

Hairdryer; Jacuzzi; washer and dryer; iron and ironing board; kitchen stocked with dishes, cookware, barware, full-size refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and coffee maker; counter with barstools off the kitchen; glass-topped dining room table that seats 6; in-room safe; TVs (with cable) in the living room and both bedrooms; VCR; ceiling fans in the living room, bedrooms, and balcony; central a/c; extra towels, linens, and pillows; fold-out couches in living room and second bedroom. (Although the resort is a timeshare, housekeeping service is provided when staying as a hotel guest. The housekeeper does the dishes.)

Other Comments:

The units at this resort are very large and very comfortable. This would be an excellent choice for a family. Marriott's website has a small picture of the resort at http://www.marriott.com/vacationclub/MCOCY.
