Still wonder how I found them, but I am very lucky I did. From the moment I saw all of the options available at this beautiful resort, I knew I had to bring my fiancé. When I did, he felt the same way. The Event Sales Manager, Brittany Scott, is someone who loves what she does and it shows. She is such a kind and professional person. Every question, she was ready to answer and if she was not immediately available, Eva Delgado who works with Brittany was quick to get back to me. I feel so fortunate to have had such a beautiful wedding at a beautiful venue. And also, everyone at this hotel, from the moment we drove up, to check-in, to the actual banquet staff...first class all the way. I truly felt like I was the luckiest girl in the world. I cannot say enough about my experience of having my wedding here...I am already planning to book my anniversary here as well. Brittany, thank you again for all of the amazing work you and your team did. I am truly grateful.
The outdoor ceremony site and the reception room at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress made our decision of where to have our wedding an easy one—it is absolutely gorgeous, with beautiful landscaping, waterfalls, bridges and a lake that all made for amazing photographs. Though there aren’t as many photos online as for some of the other popular outdoor venues in the Orlando area, this resort is definitely worth seeing in person. It is moderately priced and certainly comparable to other popular venues as well. We couldn’t be happier with our decision! To top it all off, we and our guests were treated to exceptional service by all the hotel staff throughout our wedding weekend. Tracy in particular organized everything remarkably, always quick to respond to our questions and ensuring that all the details came together seamlessly on the day. We truly felt special and well taken care of. You won’t be disappointed with this venue, I guarantee it!
Overall good experience, but beware of rude employeeReviewed on 4/24/2015 Marzetta R
The Hyatt Regency is a great location for a wedding, the scenery is just breathtaking! Other than the rude employee situation (described below), I would have to say I enjoyed my experience at the Hyatt. Tracy (event coordinator) was a joy to work with, the food was spectacular, and La Coquina is a beautiful reception space. There were a few minor bumps during the planning process because the hotel event coordinator left his position 3 months before the wedding, and did not properly inform the new coordinator of the remaining to-dos before the big day. Thankfully, Tracy, the new event coordinator, jumped right in and helped us finish planning with time left to spare. She was great to work with, and accommodated all of our requests, even allowing our large dog (70 lbs) on property for pictures. Our check-in experience was not the best. We were supposed to receive VIP check-in (champagne, greeting from manager, etc), but apparently that doesn't happen until after 11am - it was 10:45 when we checked in. Being the bride and groom, I thought they could make an exception. But the lady behind the desk was not budging, not even a bit. Meanwhile, the day before, my parents had VIP check-in and were treated like royalty. We had a mix up with the welcome bags that were to be delivered to guests rooms. The front desk handed them out at check-in for some guests. When they were told they should be delivered to the rooms, the same guests that received bags at check-in later received a bag in their room. We were able to fix the issue, but I feel like it could have been avoided. The only truly negative experience I had was when a employee kicked us out of our dressing rooms immediately after the reception. We had the dressing rooms until midnight, and it was a little after 11pm. There was even a sign in the hall with our names, room numbers, and the start and end times allotted for the rooms. The employee shouted in the room asking when we were leaving. He said we can't hang out there, and had to pack up and leave immediately. We were not being loud or obnoxious or doing anything that would provoke him to ask us to leave. We brought up a couple beers to drink while we packed up our make-up and changed clothes, it was harmless. I was very insulted by the way he treated us like we didn't belong there - it was me (the bride) and my bridesmaids! I felt as though we should have been treated with more respect seeing how it was a wedding. I would recommend this location for anyone that is interested in having a "wedding weekend" as there is so much to do on and around the property. Overall, we had a great experience and our guests enjoyed their stay.(Hopefully you won't have to encounter the rude employee)
Amazing ExperienceReviewed on 7/07/2013 Samantha C
We initially booked our wedding at the Grand Cypress because my husband and I both had great memories of previous stays at the resort. However, the facility and especially the employees helped make our wedding flawless. My (now)husband and I wanted the wedding to be at a resort since both of our extended families live all over the country and we wanted those family members to have plenty of activities over our wedding weekend. The amenities at this resort in general are outstanding, just go to the activities page on their website and you will find something for everyone. In terms of the actual wedding day, the entire staff was immensely well prepared and thoughtful toward our entire wedding party. The catering staff know how to host a party and the food/alcohol was outstanding. The entire event went so smoothly thanks almost entirely to their catering manager Christine Calace and day-of coordinator (which was included in the package). While this venue is by no means "cheap", if it is within your price range, it is a bargain for the quality of the facility, the amenities, and the staff.
Breathtaking venue!Reviewed on 10/30/2012 Stephanie L
The hotel is amazing. I fell in love immediately with the cascade room when I toured the hotel. The fountain, the spiral staircase, and the view overlooking the lake was the icing on the cake. The room looked so beautiful as the sun was setting. The food was gourmet and delicious. No was never an answer and I loved it! The staff was very accomodating to my attention to detail. I would recommend this venue to anyone. It really is all in one.
Gorgeous Location!Reviewed on 10/23/2012 Blakely T
I recommend having your ceremony and reception at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. The venue is absolutely beautiful and the grounds make for perfect wedding photography backgrounds. The staff was extremely helpful and the catering manager was such a blessing to work with. Our families live out of state and having everything in one location was so much fun and easy for our friends and family to take part in our wedding festivities. We had an absolute blast spending time with our families by the pool and dining in the restaurants on property. Our guests were so excited about all the amenities and the proximity of all the local attractions and restaurants available to them during their stay. The food was amazing and our guests loved the variety of foods and the quality of the food for a wedding reception. The cake was also included in our package and I sent in a photo of what I envisioned and the final outcome was absolutely stunning. I could not be more happy with how our wedding and stay turned out. I would highly recommend the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress for all of your wedding needs.

I had my wedding here and it was absolutely amazing!! We had a few hiccups and they had started their renovations a few weeks before but overall it was a great experience and I would recommend this place especially to people with out of town guest. I had about 70 and they loved being by the pool and Disney so close by!
Fabulous!!Reviewed on 4/15/2012 Jacqueline M
The Hyatt is the definition of professional and class! My wedding day was absolutely great. From day one they worked with me to customize the wedding of my dreams. Not many people can say that their wedding day was perfect, but i can honestly say that may day couldn't have been any closer. They handled everything from decor to lighting to food, even my cake which was amazing and actually tasted great! You can't go wrong with the Hyatt.
Hidden Gem in Lake Buena VistaReviewed on 2/23/2012 Christine L
As my photographer put it, there are few resorts in Orlando that has as many different types of scenery as there are at the Grand Cypress. Cypress Pointe was the perfect ceremony venue to allow the great outdoors be the decor. The hotel was being renovated at the time, so my cocktail reception had to be changed last minutes because the contractors didn't move the equipment in time. The terrace right outside Trellises offers such an intimate environment for the cocktail reception among some lush greenery. La Coquina's floor to ceiling windows offered the perfect lighting during my luncheon reception. No fancy decor needed...just the natural beauty outside and through the windows did the job. The food, the FOOD was out of this world! The staff really took care of the bride and groom during the reception. Overall, this hotel knows what they are doing. At times, I felt like I needed more information to do my planning since I did not intentionally hire a wedding planner, but in the end, things came together. If it wasn't for the renovation putting a dent in my cocktail reception, my wedding day would have been nothing less than perfect.
Outstanding service - Absolutely perfect!Reviewed on 6/24/2011 Sharon F
The Hyatt is not only a beautiful resort, but everything about the wedding was perfect. Juliana in catering did everything absolutely possible to make sure that my day was perfect and everything went smoothly. The service staff was great, and we've gotten SO many compliments on the food. We were also provided with a ceremony coordinator, which was very helpful. And the best part was the resort is dog friendly, which meant we were able to have our flower dog in the wedding! Additionally, for having our wedding at the Hyatt, we got 4 free nights at any Hyatt, which made our Hawaiian honeymoon MUCH more affordable. It might not have been the cheapest venue, but was definitely worth the cost!
Beautiful venue!Reviewed on 12/19/2010 Amanda M
Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress was a fabulous venue for our wedding. They have several gorgeous places to have the ceremony, but we chose Cypress Point. Our luncheon was supposed to be outdoors on Trellis Patio, but it was too cold, and we moved it inside. There was no fuss, and I didn't have to worry about anything. The only bad thing was that I had to plan primarily through email, since I can't be on the phone at work and there's a three hour time difference between me and the Hyatt. Jessica took her time replying to me, and I had to send several emails more than once.
Great place to be pamperedReviewed on 11/14/2010 Debbie W
