Recent Stay at Cypress Palms

A guest and I were down in FL for some NASCAR action, so I booked a four night stay at Cypress Palms some time ago, my first stay since buying there. The weather was gorgeous in the Greater Orlando area, but a tad rainy around Daytona over our final two days.

Overall, the stay was pleasant. The microwave in the lock-off guest unit stopped functioning, and the staff promptly replaced it with no problems. Got a bit of a smile on my face when I returned one afternoon to find the staff had left a small package with some Easter chocolates on my door.

I had a great stay all in all. I can't wait to drive back down, most likely in June for my Birthday weekend. I'd like to add about 200,000 points to my contract in the meantime.

Keep watch on eBay. Cypress Palms points contracts show up there fairly often.
