The Review: Nestled just off of Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway (highway 192) in Kissimmee, lies a quaint Florida paradise called Cypress Palms. This condo style resort is brought to you by Wyndham (pronounced wind-am) Hotels and Vacation Resorts (they also offer time-shares). It’s golden yellow paint job beautifully reflects the glow of the sun and the palm trees draw you in to it’s hours of fun and relaxation. In addition to its great number of condos available, it offers enough activities for you and your family that you may not want to leave the resort at all! The resort employs hundreds of wonderfully pleasant people that always wave and say hello and truly make your stay a positive one with their vast knowledge and the ease of which they relay information to you.
This is just about the perfect place for families to vacation because of the many kid oriented activities, social events (pool parties, ice cream socials, fitness walks, etc), pools, and craft activities. It’s also a great place for couples to come and spend time together relaxing by the pool…not to mention the numerous near-by restaurants! It’s a busy resort, but it’s definitely not too busy to give you prompt and great customer service. You’re able to walk right in and get your room keys! Even if you just have a simple question such as “I don’t have a car. How can I get 7 miles down the road?” get you a quick response and a phone call from a taxi company to hook you up with a ride! Easy as that!
All of the rooms seem to have been recently renovated and are stocked with high quality furniture and kitchen ware. Each room has a calming color scheme that isn’t too ‘floridian’ (IE. not screaming of the beach and with bright colors in your face). Despite the rest of Kissimme, with it’s 1980’s era appeal, Cypress Palms has a much more modern appeal that’s bound to tickle your fancy!
Dining/Entertainment: Cypress Palms is located within walking distance to many great restaurants such as Cracker Barrel, Macaroni Grill, Uno Chicago Grill, Chili’s, and a Krispie Kreme. Other than that, there are a ton of other great restaurants up and down Hwy 192 that you and your family can pick from. Entertainment speaking: there are tons of discount ticket places near-by, loads of shopping, gift/souvenir shops, genuine Florida orange shop (it’s even shaped like an orange!), helicopter tours, airboat tours, Old-Town (eateries, car shows/cruises, carnival type rides, thrill rides), and so much more to please just about any soul!
