The Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress is one of the crown jewels of the Lake Buena Vista. The Orlando hotel has held its own, maintaining at least a four-star rating and a loyal guest following. With its ultra-convenient location adjacent to Walt Disney World ® and a sizeable, sparkling lagoon with a beach, spa, and health club, Hyatt Regency is a great value comparable to some of the pricier hotels in the area.
Guests will feel at ease the moment they step inside the Hyatt’s lovely lobby, adorned with lush blossoms and exotic trees offset against a sparkling tile floor. Upon check-in, guests will be greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne – and that’s just the start of a comfortable, luxurious, and memorable stay. Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress offers 750 spacious guest rooms, each equipped with a private balcony, luxurious bath with deluxe amenities, wireless high speed Internet, and lovely views of the resort’s garden, pool, or lake. Each room or suite is decorated in tropical style with rattan-style furnishings, and each comes with a 27-inch television. Additional amenities include a minibar, in-room safe, coffeemaker and hairdryer, wake up calls, in room massages and child care, electronic check out, and more.
Seven dining options inside the Hyatt Regency ensure that guests will never go hungry, ranging from a casual sports grill to the elegant Hemingway’s restaurant, specializing in fresh seafood and overlooking the outdoor pool. If guests never venture outside the hotel – unlikely, we know – we doubt they’d be bored as the Hyatt Regency offers a surprising amount of recreational options. The first recommended stop is certainly the shimmering blue half-acre pool, adorned with streaming waterfalls, lush greenery, and two dizzying waterslides. Three whirlpools and a complete game room ensure that poolside fun is never lacking, and in the summer, ‘Dive-In’ movies are played by the pool.
The hotel also regularly hosts family activities and a “Camp Hyatt”. Spa, fitness center, and tennis courts are also available for guests who want to relax or burn off some calories. The highlight of the hotel, however, is the Jack Nicklaus Signature Designed golf course and golf academy, complete with three 9-hole golf courses, a “Pitch ‘n’ Putt” 9-hole par-3 course, and a new 18-hole links-style course reminiscent of the Old Course at St. Andrews. If all other activities fail, guests can enjoy a peaceful walk; the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress is set on 1,500 beautifully landscaped acres that include a 45-acre preserve, nature trails, and a mile-long Audubon Walk filled with exotic plants and wildlife.
