Marriott's Cypress Harbour
Marriott's Cypress Harbour
Marriott's Cypress Harbour greets you with old Floridian charm. Cypress Harbour offers two-bedroom, two-bath timeshare villas with full kitchen, private balcony, washer/dryer, and separate living and dining areas. The master suite features a king-size bed with an oversized tub for soaking weary muscles after a full day at the parks or on the golf course.
Marriott's Cypress Harbour is a golfers paradise, sitting right on Marriott's Grande Pines Golf Club. Designed by renowned golf course architect Steve Smyers, Grande Pines makes shot selection as important a consideration as any other aspect of your game. If you need a little help on the course, each cart is equipped with a ProLink yardage system, providing accurate yardage to the hole and the ability to order lunch prior to the turn.
If your plan is to hit the theme parks, Marriott's Cypress Harbour resort is minutes away from Disney's Epcot, MGM Studios, and Magic Kingdom theme parks, in addition to Universal Studios and Sea World. But don't miss out on the fun right on-site at Cypress Harbour. Swim until your fingers prune in any one of the three pools, grab a pole and go fishing in the 15-acre lake, enjoy the fully staffed recreation center and health club, or watch the kids romp at the indoor children's play area.

Stayed twice now looking at timeshare
Our stay with Marriott’s Cypress Harbour was excellent. Our room #6332 had great views of the lake, water feature and surrounding grounds. Loved the décor and very ample space with two bedrooms and two baths. We cook in 90% of the time so can’t provide information on the resorts dining options or the local neighborhood. To access one of the pools and activity areas the resort transfer’s guests back and forth with a nice pontoon boat. We attended a very enjoyable Hawaiian show during the week. What a great place for families to enjoy all the activities in Orlando and a quiet pleasant return to the resort at the end of the day.
Great resort, villas are very nice, beds are super cozy! Pools are heated and the kids had a blast! Food is great as well as the staff! We had a wonderful time at this resort. We stayed at a the Hyatt and left after one night because the room was so small and the food prices were outrageous! We rented this two bedroom for 3 nights and were extremely satisfied. We needed a early check-in as well as a late check-out without a problem. We loved this property and will be back. We rented a week at this property 7 years ago, a lot of updates to rooms. We loved the Kingsize bed as well as the spacious sectional with pull out sofa. The 2nd bedroom had a Queen size bed, Wish there were two twin beds instead. The heated pool is a definite plus, especially at night!
Stayed in a B one bedroom unit. All the windows faced the motel type balcony so there was no privacy unless the shades were down. The living room was really cramped and just sitting at the small table required a e-arrangment of the furniture. The kitchen was well equipped with a small stove with an oven and a dishwasher so full credit for that. However, one major disappointment was the lack of a midweek refresh. The front desk explained that midweek service is only available to Wyndham owners with some exalted Wyndham status and not to mere RCI exchangers This is all the more bizarre since the sales guy made a point of telling us that Wyndham owned RCI. Overall, the resort is fine and well located, Staff were helpful but seemed overloaded. If we go back I will not stay in this unit.
We stayed are Cypress Harbour the first week in May. Our first time at a Marriott resort and it was everything we were told to expect. The grounds were impeccable and the staff very accomodating and friendly. Our scheduled room in building 55 wasn't ready when we arrived but they did some re-arranging and gave us a top floor corner unit in Bldg 71, which was actually our second choice. The unit was fantastic and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. The only maintenance issue we had was the jacuzzi tub...the jets needed a good cleaning. It wasn't noticable until after you got out of the tub and turned off the jets. Then there were little specks of dirt. But they were quick to respond and took care of it. The only reason I didn't give them 5Stars for an Overall Rating was that I felt their snack bar/grill was not up to Marriott standards. We felt that several food items were inedible. They need to re-think that area. We did enjoy a nice Italian dinner at Delmonico's which is at the corner of Westwood and International Drive. There is also a really nice wine store (Total Wine) about a half-mile north of the Millenia Mall.
Just finished up 7 nights, it was awesome. Less than 3 miles from Downtown Disney, and very close to Disney. Villa was spotless, nicely decorated and very spacious. Every staff member we encountered waved, greeted us and made us feel at home. Pool was spotless. There is so much to do at the resort, it could be a destination unto itself with activities for kids and adults throughout the day. We will definitely stay here again! (Oh, and the villas are very sound proof as we never heard any one else).
We stayed in a 2 bedroom for a week and really enjoyed our week. All of the staff that we met were helpful and friendly. Thanks for a wonderful week!
We spent January 6, 2011 to January 13 in Villa 3336. We enjoyed a cocktail in the evening on the screened balcony above the lake with its spacticular view across the lake. The villa was clean, comfortable and well equipt attesting to the quality of this Marriott facility. The location is convenient to all local attractions, and discount cards are available to many local restaurants.
My family of 4 stayed here and we loved it! We had a 2 bedroom and it was very spacious. The kids loved the screened in back porch and it was very peaceful to sit out and enjoy the outdoors without the bugs bothering you. The pools are all very nice and the staff at the activities center was very pleasant. We highly recommend it. Thanks!
Excellent Resort !! It is Marriott!!
Nice place. I'll stay there again when they have adequate Internet bandwidth.
Cypress Harbour is a beautiful resort in a great location with tons of amenities. But the so-called high speed Internet service isn't. It's more like dial-up speed when it actually works. It appears they're trying to save money by utilizing one line for the entire resort. It's very irritating.
It you plan to stay there, you'd be well served to take your own air card.
I exchanged into this resort and was pleasntly surprised. I had stayed at this resort 12 years before, when it was still under construction. I was happy to see that the unit we were given had been recently renovated.
Being in Orlando during Easter week meant spending time on long lines. The two teenagers in our party had a great time enjoying the resort. They took part in many of the MAZE activities, they also enjoyed the pools and the basketball courts.
I look forward to visiting this resort again.
Just left the resort after a busy easter Break at the theme parks.. We traded our Marriott Desert Villas for easter week. We were expecting a crowded resort given the time of the year, may have only been 60% occupied whoch was great but the theme parks where jammed packed. If you are vacation with your children plan on a 10 to 14 day vacation as you will need to rest after each day at the theme parks, one week will not be enough as there is so much to do and so much to see.
Great Marriott resort, Location is perfect minutes from all theme parks, restaurants and international drive. The Staff where very freindly and helpfull. We own many Marriott Timeshares and this is up to the Marriott level of 5. We where told you have a golf course view, however so many trees no view of course. From Building 74 great view of the fireworks from seaworld which is only a mile away.
This is a great place for famlies or coulpes, however as we have 3 little ones that love pools with slides this resorts pools are nice but no slides for the kids... We actually drove and walked across the street to The New Horizons by Marriott which has all the pools for kids and slides.
We did get numerous calls from the sales Staff kept calling for a 90 minute presentation which we had no interst in, and had no time for as we where here on a vacation.
When attending the theme parks, we purchased all our tickets from the Hotel concierge same price as resorts beats waiting in line. Highly recommend as they can charge to you room and then on your Marriott visa card which will give you points for every dollar spent.
would stay here again, however we like trying out different Marriott resorts more than likely if we can trade will try and stay at the Horizons or Grande Vista one accross the street other 2 miles away.
Lastly we faxed our grocery list in advance everything was delivered and in its place prior to our arrival.
Enjoyed our stay hope you do as well.
We go to orlando every year. We love the updated decor at the Cypress Harbour. We've been to Marriott Grand Vista, by far it is the most elaborate of the Marriotts in Orlando but they had some outside bug issues. The pool at the Grand Vista is the nicest but Cypress Harbour pools are all very clean and quaint but hard to find a spot. Pizza hut and ice cream always a hit with the kids. The units are beautiful! You cant go wrong with Marriotts!! We recommend Marriott Cypress harbour, Horizons, and Grand Vista all top notch resorts. We go to orlando every year for 6 yrs now.
Just an outstanding family resort and a great location for all the fun things to do in Orlando. Marriott manages this property and as usual, we found it to be a well run and up to date facility. They offer daily activies for the entire family, that is if you are not off visiting one of the many Disney resorts, Sea World, or Universal Studios, all close by.
The rooms are all up to date and fully functional with inside laundry and full kitchen and dinning area. There are three TV and a DVD player and CD player for music. The outside screen room is great for sipping your late night beverage and watching the fireflies!
Very well cared for resort. One building is usually being refurbished every year; so everything is up to date. Enough pools and activities right on the property to take a break from the parks. Close to Sea World and International Drive.
I am giving this resort 3 stars because of the cleanliness of our room. We rented a 2 bedroom for the week of Dec.16-23,2006. When entering the room we were pleased, but after taking off our shoes and walking from one room to the next, we noticed that the bottoms of our socks were black! The tile floor was sticky to walk on as well. I called the front desk and spoke with Mike. He told me that our building was going to be closed for renovations after we left and everything would be thrown away! I told him my disappointment in Marriott (not that he really cared). He offered to have the carpet shampooed. I took him up on the offer, but all they did was come and vacuum the carpet and didn't bother to mop the tile floors.
The resort is in a great location and about 10 minutes to get to the WDW parks. The resort has alot of activities, though we never did any because we spent our time at WDW.
I'm sure if you got a newly renovated room it would be great. If it hadn't been for our dirty floors I would given it 5 stars. Just be sure to ask for a newly renovated room!
Absolutely love it!!! Great location, clean facilities, beautiful resort, great view and friendly staff!
We have stayed at this resort for 3 years in a row and we absolutely love it! It is close to everything yet you feel so secluded. I love being on a lake, although it's not that big - you can take out paddleboats - and the activities staff even have paddleboat races! This is a great resort for families - lots of stuff to do besides hang out at the pool.
The rooms are very, very nice but again just make sure you ask for an updated room - the staff at this resort are so nice and will try to acommodate you in any way possible.
Our kids, ages 8 and 5 would rather just stay at the resort and play in the sand! And this past vacation we did just that! We went to the parks 2 separate days and that was all. This is a great place to stay - we'll be going back year after year!!
We have owned here since 1996. The management and board of directors have done an outstanding job in keeping this property in pristine condition! We are proud to be owners!
We've been a guest at this resort in 1995, 2000, and 2005. The timeshare owner (my father-in- law) owns a sport week at Cypress Harbor. Each time we visited the unit that we stayed in was nicely furnished and clean. It does sleep up to 8 people, although 2 are non-private so I would recommend no more than 6 persons in the unit.
The Resort is located centrally to Sea World and Universal Studios. Disney World is a little further by highway, but not a ridiculous commute. You can see the Seaworld fireworks from this Resort.
We visited all three times during week 23, which is a time when Orlando is starting to get busy and hot/humid. The Resort has a nice pool area to relax when you return from all the crowds. It's also tucked away nicely from all the blinking lights and hussle and bustle so you do feel relaxed here.
LOVE this place! Only con are the spiders that refuse to go away, even though Marriott sprays weekly week and has someone clear away the webs nearly every day!
Service is FIRST CLASS, resort is BEAUTIFUL, rooms are GORGEOUS, deli is wonderful, store is very reasonable, Pizza Hut, kids activities, poolside lounge with FABULOUS reggae music. It's the bomb (as our kids say!).
Have been staying here for nearly 5 years and have had the most wonderful, most relaxing time, every time!
Marriott's Cypress Harbor is first class!
5 Star all the way !!! This is our first time staying at the resort & we were impressed. Everything was great. Clean, beautiful resort. Huge rooms - especially the master bedroom/suite. Kids really loved the huge jacuzzi tub. The Horizon by Marriott is across the street. That location had better pools for the kids (more to do at pools) - but the rooms at Cypress were nicer - because of the master bedroom being so large. Highly recommend Cypress Harbour.
We visited the week of September 4th - 11th. There was a lot of remodeling going on - but that was OK. Check in and check out were easy.
What I was really disappointed in was the cleanliness of the units. We had 2 units, which at first glance looked great. However, when I went to use the jacuzzi, all kind of black particles were floating around in the water. The towel rack fell off the wall when we took the towel off, and the coffee maker was broken.
In the second room, the sheets were dirty. They had hair and stains (I don't want to surmise what they were) on them. While sitting in the chair beside the bed, we noticed all kinds of dirt (papers and crumbs) under the bed.
These things were attended to quickly but it made me leary of how clean other items in the unit were. I was disappointed to find these kinds of things at a Marriott resort!
I don't think we will return here...
Was just there for the Fourth of July celebration and we had a great time. This resort has it all!! Location, convenience, amenities, service, and beauty. For a family with four children that range in ages 3-22 there was something for everyone. I highly recommend it and we plan to go back.
There really is nothing better. With 4 boys, ages 8,6,5 and 2, our family definitely needs something with a "Kiddie Pool" that is cool enough for the older kids to enjoy too. The property itself if very clean and well maintained. We plan on having many memories made here at Cypress Harbour.
This is an addition to a prior posting. We just returned from Thanksgiving Week at Cypress Harbour and stayed in one of the "updated" units. Everything is truly first class including granite countertops and all new appliances. Best of all is full time "free" high speed internet connections in the room. Marriott is listening to their owners and this resort just gets better every year!
We have owned and stayed at Cypress Harbour almost every year since 1994. It is one of our most favored resorts. There is everything to do here - golf, fishing, sight seeing, amusement parks, water parks and of course the home of the mouse - Disney World. Cypress Harbour has an active update and remodeling program so all units are routinely updated and remodeled every few years. This is a really great resort with really great accomodations, activities and staff. I recommend it most highly.
Excellent resort was just there for a week and wow it really is beautiful and very centrally located It only took 15 minutes to get to all the Disney resorts and Sea world was approximately a mile a way. There is a very good Purex market nearby and many nice family restaurants were less than 5 miles away. The resort has really great activities for all members of the family and the people are really nice. I would highly recommend this place. This is the second Marriott resort I visit and again I have no complaints.
This is an excellant resort. Excellant accomidations, excellant service. The pools are very nice. The resort is 15 mins away from Disney. I would stay here again in a second.
outstanding for families..... excellent value for the money..... our favorite Marriott in Orlando....
Very nice resort. After two days at the parks, the kids didn't want to leave the resort. Several pools and many planned activities.
This is an exceptional and mature property. The mature landscaping makes you feel like you have escaped the rate race. You would never know you are in the thick of the Orlando action, for this resort is quiet and serene. The villas are large and tastefully decorated. The pools are wonderful. There is so much to do at the resort! The screened baconies provide a private, restful spot. Golf is great! We have stayed here 3 times out of the last three years. The kids as well as adults love it!
Just a note to let the golfers know that Grande Pines opened in Jan/04, and it is beautiful. Very challenging, and in excellent condition. Fees are $130 peak, $80 post 2pm and you get 10% for being with Marriott. It's worth it, and so close to the resort.
As for Cypress Harbour - if you have kids this place has it all.
We stayed at this resort in May of 02 and we love it. The lush landscape gave it a feel of a tropical hideaway. The villa was very clean and well appointed. All we requested during our stay were clean linen which was brought promptly. Screened balcony was especially nice during the evening so we didn't have to deal with bug. We traveled with 2 teenagers and felt really safe with them going around the property on their own.
I guess my favorite amenitie at Cypress Harbour is they have a shuttle bus for the property. Our unit was near the entrance and pool so the clubhouse and marina was a not in walking distance. But you could call the shuttle, tell them your villa number and they would pick you up and drive you where ever you needed to go around the property and bring you back. That is an extra you really come to appreciate when you stay at a resort with a lot of activities.
Lot of activities for teens, families, and kids. My brother in law and nephew won the fishing contest and were given free rentals on fishing and boating throughout their stay.
A year later after staying at Star Island, we promptly purchased a week here.
Very nice resort,lots of activities for everyone. My family especially liked the live music by the pool.Location isn't bad,kind of between Disney and Universal.
Excellent Resort, lots of activities for the whole family.
Very nice resort. Our unit was stating to show its age with wallpaper coming off the wall, chips in the furniture, and the air conditioner not working properly. The units were very large. Second bedroom was on the small side for a Marriott Resort. Nice pools and several hot tubs. Live music was played at the poolside on most days. Plenty of activities for everyone. I would recommend visiting this resort.
Our family decided to have a family reunion in Florida. We checked other places, hotels, motels, looking for the best prices, but not wanting to compromise our comfort needs. Somehow, my sister came across Mariott Cypress Harbour, and at that point, we didn't care what we got anymore, as long as we were in Florida. The process was just taking way too long. Well, when we got to our rooms..WOW, was all I could say..who dreamed you could have such pleasant accomodations without breaking the bank. The staff was so friendly and went above and beyond the call of duty. This was not to be attributed to the delirium that comes with vacation, where you think everything is just wonderful, because we have been to different places and have returned home sometimes, feeling just plain...cheated. We had 3 of your 2 bedroom villas, and everyone was in agreement that this was the very best place they have ever stayed. That stay was in 1996, since then, we have referred many of our friends and co-workers to Mariott Cypress Harbour, and we were thanked for the suggestion, I honestly can't tell you how many times.. I am currently trying to talk my family into another family gathering, but I am in the process of putting together a package for my own little family. Thank you for everything Mariott!!!! Sincerely, Josephine Walsh Sincerely, Josephine Walsh
