What’s The Difference?

A commonly asked question has been what are the differences between Cypress Pointe Resort aka Phase 1 and Grande Villas Resort aka Phase 2? Read the story of the history of the two resorts here.

We have put together a comparison chart so you may better match your vacation needs to the best available resort.**** Remember there are three independent resorts at the Cypress Pointe Development. This is the website for the only “Cypress Pointe Resort” also known as Phase 1.

Blue Tree / Westgate is the third. We do not share facilities in anyway with Blue Tree / Westgate Resort.
