Our Winter Weekend Getaway at Orlando's Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress

A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I took the baby for our first staycation! Wow, packing for a baby is an art all in its own! I will for sure offer some tips at a later date but bring the kitchen sink and everything else! It was a fun new experience being on the road for a couple of days. Not that I was in the wilderness, I was at the fabulous Orlando Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress during their Winter Weekend Getaway promotion.

The best part of our stay is that I really had no desire to leave the property (except to a quick jaunt over to Disney Springs for some lunch and shopping, of course). At the Hyatt Grand Cypress, they had everything we needed on site for some much needed time away.

Meet Merlot

I can not say enough about the staff. I doubt it was pity, but they were so extra special to us as new parents. Tim, who has been a bellman at the Hyatt for almost thirty years gave us some great details about the property and a quick tour. He is also Merlot's keeper!

When we arrived, our room was almost ready so I was offered a glass of champagne and we went for a walk in the gardens to get our bearings. The property is gorgeous. Beautiful statues, great places to relax and majestic views.

The Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress does a lot of conference business and more than once I found myself feeling sorry for anyone who was missing out on a chance to go outside on this gorgeous day with all these pretty things to look at.

Lovely welcome with Champagne










Sadly for us, the weather wasn't the greatest during the whole time we were there, but we made the best of it.

We were able to go take a peek at the caves, waterfalls and all the different amenities while we walked. How is this amazingness only a short drive for us!

Located along the 1,000 feet of white sandy beach of private Lake Windsong, the free-flowing lagoon pool boasts 12 waterfalls, heated and non-heated pools, two whirlpools, new Water Slide Tower Pavilion, new children’s Rock Climbing Stations, new interactive Water Jet Splash Zone, rope bridge, walking paths, and expansive, wrap-around sundecks.  New features complement the resort’s favorite activities including; S’mores pit, beach volleyball, tether ball, hammocks, watersports and marked jogging, walking, and biking trails.





Oh, the eating!! We ate three meals a day like kings and queens!

Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress features a variety of dining options inspired by Florida’s rich history. Guests can savor island-inspired Cuban cuisine at Hemingway’s or enjoy healthy, locally-sourced, farm-to-table cuisine throughout the day at LakeHouse.  LakeHouse exquisitely blends contemporary dining with the comforts of home. Guests can also sip poolside cocktails at On the Rocks or enjoy small plates and specialty drinks at Trellises Lounge. Here are some of our favorites from the LakeHouse:
