Yelp Elite Pool Party @ The Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress

Posted by Colleen Burns

Being in Florida, you need to take advantage of the gorgeous evenings before it gets sweltering. So, Friday we enjoyed a Yelpy Pool Party and it was HOT but not because of the heat. All yelpers showed up in their Pool attire donning bright floral prints, long skirts and bathing suits.

We hung out by the upper pool deck at the lovely Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Orlando while live local music of Robert will fill the background provided from Shari Haushalter of GRANDEOS as we noshed on bites from their delicious restaurants! We had a complete range of food including Caesar Salad and Mahi Mahi Tacos from Cascade, a gorgeous selection of Nigiri and Maki Mono and Kobe Burgers from White HorseCrisp Tempura Dusted Calamari and Crab Cake paired with coconut grits from Hemingway'sCuban Pork Paninis and Signature Margherita Pizza from Palm Café and if that wasn't enough... we ended with the sweetness of Sunday Brunch Desserts from award winning Pastry Chef at La Coquina.

We toured the new rooms of the resort, the huge pool and grotto area, which was so inviting. The sunset was picturesque so we had a challenge of the best photo would win a dinner for two at the Resort. The each and additional amenities around the resort were stunning. We also raffled off a two-night stay to return to the resort for those who did not take advantage of the $99 special we were offered that evening. Also on site was Snap! Orlando raffling off an entire weekend pass to the upcoming 5-day photography celebration showcasing the work of renowned international and national photographers, as well as images from emerging local talent. It's taking place here in Downtown Orlando May 4th through May 8th. Reserve your tickets today!

Jim White Photography was catching all this gloriousness with his amazing photog skills so make sure to check out all the photos here. If you want to catch more of the event buzz, hop over to the event listing to read all about the excitement from your fellow yelpers. 

Until next time, SYOY,
