I had just got got off the phone from some sweepstakes about Calypso Cay resort. They had told me that I have one a trip for 2 and for 2 more family and friends to Florida and Cancun. They have also said that i would only get this for 498.00 And would be able to use it any time within 12 months.


After reading reports on the internet i wanted to cancel this offer. The number they gave me brings me to calypso's actuall resort and they know nothing of it at all, I have also done my reaserch and fond out that calypso does not have a resort in Cancun, but in the bahammas.

has anyone actually have gon on this trip or is this a total scam?

Not a Scam

AUTHOR: Manny - (U.S.A.)

I have family in upstate New York and also in Canada. They received calls like the one you describe. Since I lived in the area of central florida they called me. I also checked around before letting them know what I had found. It is a REAL place. Calypso Cay is located right by Disney World. It has apparently been there for about 7 years and has 4 or 5 hotels at the location and looks nice from what I could tell. I didn't know about the company but the location looks great. I told my cousin that it was a real place and he purchased a so-called "vacation package" from Calypso Cay so he could see the property, get a great deal on coming to the Orlando area with his kids and if something did go wrong, worst case he could stay with me. He got the package and used it with no problems at all. He said that they got there with no problems and the resort is beautiful. You mentioned something about Cancun or the Bahamas. What he told me was that in the "package" he bought, it included a stay at their resort and a few other destinations like the bahamas and Daytona Beach and I think he mentioned Mexico as well. He went to Daytona after Orlando and he said it was ok but nothing great and was going to go to Cancun next year since it was already paid for. He said that they work with other resorts in those areas but don't necessarily own the resort like they do in Orlando. All in all he said he had seen and heard some bad things as well about packages in general but overall this one was a great deal and he had no problems at all. I hope that helps. THe one thing he did say that he had some trouble with was with the original company that contact him about the package. This wasn't coming directly from Calypso Cay but a travel office that was promoting them. He said that after some hassle with them he contacted the resort directly and after that everything went great!
