CYPRESS POINTE RESORT is Phase 1
CYPRESS POINTE GRANDE VILLAS is Phase 2. And let me start by saying people always get them confused or think they are the same. TRIPADVISOR should have 2 separately places for the both. PERIOD. Why? They currently share amenities.Mainly pools but they do share other things. Some of that will be changing soon. (NEW CHECK IN FACILITY for phase 2 going to be built). In my opinion they should separate totally. And I think they are working toward that in my opinion. THEY are both managed by two totally separate companies. Both are timeshare resorts and both are manage separately by 2 different associations. So as I give this review I will help to distinguish for you. THIS REVIEW IS FOR PHASE 1. I repeat PHASE 1.
Phase 1 building has 3 levels (2 has 5)
Phase 1 association has done and excellent job at updating the resort through the years. You will see as you go into your newly renovated resort. Clean and well kept. New CAFE besides the neat Volcano POOL along with new awesome play area for kids and new redone game room. Phase 1 has no elevators. If you are on 1st floor its not a problem. Can be if you are on 2nd and 3rd floor. Lugging luggage can be a pain. Besides that I cannot complain about anything. We where there for the week. July 23rd-31st. 3 bedrooms sleep 8 or can be split into 6 for 2 bedroom and 2 for the studio. Studio is very nice for 2. A lot nicer than a standard hotel room.we had a 3 bedroom. about 1600 square feet of redone nice living. They have done an excellent job. Actually will surprise you when you walk through the doors.
Clean, neat , no riff raft. Lots of security around. Felt safe and we all enjoyed very much.
Phase 2 is behind on there updating. Not managed as well in my opinion from people that own their.
They do have a better actual floor plan but things need updating I am told. They do have 5 floors and an elevator which is a plus and probably the only thing that would be a plus over phase 1.
If you stay there be sure you are staying in phase 1 if you want totally redone rooms and amenities. ASK ASK ASK. People thing they are going to 1 and they are really going to 2. Now don't get me wrong. Phase 2 is not terrible. Stayed there a few years ago, so I do know about it. They just are behind on their updating. And like I said earlier, they do have a better floor plan that is bigger and will sleep more. But in my opinion I like having new things as they have don so well in Phase 1.
Location actually is to good in my opinion. Buena Vista right there at the DOWNTOWN DISNEY location can be very congested. Going to the parks take 535(light before Disney entrance) GPS should take you, and you will miss a lot of traffic. trust me. Try to make the light coming out of Vinning (Walgreens across street). VERY LONG LIGHT. You can actually go back out behind and it is quicker sometimes. Depending where you are going. SO remember::
CYPRESS POINTE RESORT is Phase 1
CYPRESS POINTE GRANDE VILLAS is Phase 2
1 is updated all new,2 is not.
1 is 1649 sq. ft, sleeps 8, 2 is 1823 sq. ft, sleeps 10
1 no elevator, 2 has elevator
In my opinion the best place on the whole site is building 4 Phase 1 room 4304 3 bed overlooking the volcano pool. But any in building 4 is the closest to the pool, cafe, front desk, game room, and gift shop.
So when people are saying bad things, chances are now it is about phase 2 NOT phase 1.
I would recommend both for DISNEY raiders. They will provide very good accommodations and you can get them at a lot more reasonable prices. Yes you can rent and you do not have to go to a presentation. Just make sure you know which one you are renting from. PHASE 1 or PHASE 2.
I would HIGHLY recommend Phase 1.
1 Good 2 not bad.
Hint: just unplug all phones in the room. That's what we always do now everywhere. Who needs me can get me by cell phone. The rest, well!!!!!! you no the answer.
Hope this helps. Feel free to email with more questions.
