Nicer than expected-a really nice place to stay
Posted Apr 7, 2016
My husband and I and our 3 kids were in Orlando for 3 nights to visit Universal Studios for the first time. We were surprised at how nice the accommodations were at the Villas and we very much enjoyed our stay. Before arriving in Orlando, we spent a week at a "5-star" luxury high rise in Miami Beach and were so relieved to arrive at the Villas and be greeted by such genuinely friendly, professional and non-condescending staff. The Villas are a little off the beaten path, and it does feel a bit remote -- but that's exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a little serenity in the midst of the chaos and crowds of Orlando. Set on a golf course, the surroundings are lush and green and very quiet. There aren't any little kid activities there, so maybe the Villas aren't the right choice for very young kids, but my kids enjoyed golfing, bike riding and feeding the ducks in the small lakes around the Villas. We rented a car and didn't make use of the shuttle service they provided to the parks but the shuttle was available on-demand. It takes you to the Hyatt Regency Cypress and from there you ride the Hyatt's shuttle to the parks. Maybe another reason not to stay here if you have very young ones (and strollers, etc.), but if you rent a car, you can park right outside your Villa at no charge. Super convenient!
