"Old Boy? Who are you calling old boy you patronising American git" I did not say. instead I thanked him profusely and he got our meal safely to the table.

We had dinner with a house exchange friend of Jan and Garry, Hannah who owned the house they stayed in on a previous visit to Charleston. She is a very nice young lady, a school teacher of 5th grade kids. (9 - 10 yr olds).
And so we head off next to Orlando in Florida, 6.5 hrs drive to the south, tomorrow Friday 2nd August. This visit has been very interesting, steeped in history, one of the oldest towns of America.

Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham Cypress Palms Orlando
Excellent Choice for our Family
All I can say about our trip and Stay at Cypress Palms is it was wonderful. We just returned today. We stayed 4 nights and it was a great choice. I made my choice based on reviews from Trip Advisor.
Just got back 1/20/05 - spent 5 days at the resort...
One of the best Fairfield resorts!
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in Orlando...thanks to Fairfield Cypress Palms. The facility is excellent...lots of activities for families and close to restaurants and shopping. We stayed in the 2-bedroom unit which was quite spacious. Hats off to the excellent customer service we received from Fairfield staff. I would recommend this resort without hesitation.
Great place to stay!
In the past, my husband and I have been disappointed with Fairfield, but Cypress Palms was nice. The 1 bedroom unit was clean and the decor was nice (looks better in person than their photos). Each unit has a very nice screened in balcony. Cypress Palms is right off a major road that has more than enough restaurants to choose from. The dinner show Arabian knights is only 5 minutes away. There's also a Farmer's Market, a carnival type amusement park, and a Super Target and Wal-mart close by. Disney, Universal Studios, and Int'l drive are close by. St. Petersburg is also a great town to vist. It's about 1hr 40 mins from Orlando. The prices in this area (especially gas) are much cheaper than near Disney and the other parks.
We've just returned from one week's vacation at Cypress Palms and we have to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We'd requested a one bedroom suite and although we had requested a top floor near the pool, we ended up with ground floor accommodation overlooking the pool area, we didn't really mind though because as soon as we walked in the apartment we were pleasantly surprised as to the amount of space there was inside.
I was admittedly hesitant in staying at a one bedroom condo exchange which was only a little over 500 s.f., since our kids are larger now (9 and 13) and they would be sharing the condo with us on the sofa bed. I also feared that the Fairfield name meant that these units were renovated hotel rooms with some added interior walls for the "perception" of privacy. And the designation of "Gold Crown Resort" by RCI (Resort Condominium exchanger) didn't provide much comfort either, because they seem to give out this "top rating" rather commonly, as half of their Orlando, FL resorts (29 of 59) are classified with their "best" rating.
This a great resort. The staff is courteous and it is close to all the Disney attractions and restaurants are everywhere. It's a nice resort and is in a great spot. You can't go wrong. The place is very clean and there is security on the premises to make sure you are very comfortable.
Rooms are clean, well maintained, and tastefully decorated. Ours had a microwave and small fridge. Fitness center was up to date.
Upon checkin they did let us know that we could attend a 90 minute timeshare breakfast to receive cash or free/discounted attraction tickets, but they didn't pressure us to attend.
Great vacation spot
Fairfield Orlando Cypress Palms is a great place for families to stay.
The units are very spacious and include everything you need, including washer/dryer, jacuzzi, etc. The location is great! Maybe 10 minutes to Disney parks with very easy access on 192. There were daily activities for children, a great exercise facility, and two outdoor heated pools.
There are many restaurants within walking distance, as well as a great indoor flea market that has tons of everything!
Loved everything about it
I have stayed at several area Resorts and find Fairfield Cypress Palms to be the best fit. It's quiet, clean, decorated tastefully but not over the top with just enough scenery (the fountain area)and ambience to be soothing and romantic at night. Staff are knowledgeable, conscientious yet unpretentious, no matter what time of day or night.
Love the fact that it's located right off 192, so getting anywhere is never a problem. Restaurants and sites abound and CVSwhich is two mins.
away is open 24/7 for whatever amentities one may have forgotten. Loved the tub! Truly the right fit for both the mature vacationer and the young family group.
