“Better every day....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Stayed at Ron Jon on a Disney Vacation Club exchange. After staying at Disney I was so disappointed to drive up to Ron Jon - such a small property. Walked into my unit and was just as disappointed. Red formica counter tops, low ceiling in entry. And where was the lovely ocean view I saw on the web site? After my Disney vaca this felt like a letdown. The feeling did not last long. I grew to really love the Ron Jon Resort and am look forward to returning. It's compact but has everything you need. Know in advance that unless you book a 2 bedroom unit you will not be on the ocean. Also if you book a studio you have no view at all...no windows at all.

Once I was over the lack of ocean view I really began to like Ron Jon. We had a nice corner unit in the main building looking down onto the pool area and palm trees. The sliding door in the unit opens both ways and makes it feel like you are living outside. Loved it. The pool is nice, lazy river was fun and water was warm. The pool area - as a matter of fact the whole resort - is so family friendly. Tennis, basketball, shuffleboard, mini golf, movies, magic shows, animal shows...then the beach! Restaurant was really good. The resort is in a quiet residential area - it all makes for a super relaxing vacation.

Forgot to mention clean. Extremely clean. Much cleaner than Disney timeshares I have stayed in. When I saw a housekeeper with a mop and bucket...did you ever see a mop and bucket at Disney? Try this resort - you will love it.

Room Tip: No windows in the studios would be an issue for me. We had a corner one bedroom and was able to ope...

Did New Years at RJCCR and it was again a terrific experience. Clean, well staffed with friendly helpful folks, and just a great place to stay with the kids. The beach is amazing and being at the end of the Cocoa Beach-Cape Canaveral run to the port make it far less busy than other resorts in the area. Service at the Grill was much better this stay. The room was clean, everything was working, and was well equipped. The only downside is that the Ron Jon Surf Experience stopped coming out to the resort since our last stay. Tennis, mini-golf, lazy river, giant water slide, and beach access all made it another wonderful vacation for us.

Room Tip: You have to stay 7+ days to be in the beach front building. However, the pool and other amenities a...

Perfect resort!!!!!! Gorgeous pool, heated, pleanty of seating, large hot tubs, VERY HOT, fun lazy river, fast water slide, great fast pool side frozen drinks 4.00$ and food (pizza and motz.sticks), loved the poolside music and games. Easy 1 mile walk? to beach (large and warm water) worth the walk to see the dolphins jumping right in front of you!! Awesome and relaxing resort, cant wait to return!!

Stayed here for three nights in a 1 bed condo in October with my husband and two children. It was our base whilst we visited KSC. The hotel is generally very well kept, the main pool and lazy river was open with lots of maintenance going on, the pool spiral slide was closed due to renovation, but we were only informed of this a few weeks before travel. There was plenty else for the kids to do though, and as it was a base, it would not have stopped us booking this.
The accomodation is generally well appointed, we were in the main building, again rooms were being renovated, but we did not suffer any undue noise. The restaurant is'nt the cheapest and there is not a lot else going on around here, you are right at the end of what looks like a residential street. However this makes it quite quiet, and the hotel is family orientated, which was perfect for our short stay.the hotel put on little shows, we had a wildlife show, which is free, but a contribution is expected at the end for their services!
KSC is about 30-40 mins away by car.
The beach is quite wide, there is a little trolley bus to the beach or a 10 minute walk, we were in the main building. We saw turtles in the ocean, which on our stay was okay day 1 but by day 3 as we were leaving was quite rough due to Hurricane Sandy making her way up the coastline!
We had an enjoyable time here, and would recommend.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor(5th) and thus had no noise from above.

We were recommended by our hostess at IHop in cocoa beach to stay at Ron Jon resort as it has both a wonderful pool and beach. Upon arrival, the front desk allowed us to view a model room prior to check-in. We decided to be a guest in a 6 person room which included a private bedroom with two full-size beds and a pull out sofa sleeper along with a full kitchen a little over 1,000 sq/ft. The kids loved the pool and the beach was equally as nice. The unit was modern and very clean We stayed at a Disney property prior to coming to RJ and we now wish we would've skipped staying at the wilderness lodge at Disney and stayed here all week. We will defiantly stay here again!!!!

We got a week here under special military pricing when my husband came back from Afghanistan. We have two toddlers so getting comfortable with the family, plus traveling with little ones, can be hard, but this hotel made it so much easier. We got a one bedroom, two bedroom probably would have been better so mom and dad could have more privacy , but we made do. Room was spotless and had everything we could want, full kitchen, washer dryer, patio, family room, kitchen table, plenty of closets for our beach gear. Free covered parking, little tram to go back and forth to beach, mini golf, game room, movie theater, and big pools, two toddler splash areas, long lazy river, slide, and a big main pool. Plus ample pool chairs, never had to wait for seats. The indoor playground was very very clean, I actually had to go up inside to get my little one. Most importantly to us, itis very very kid friendly. I never had to worry about my kids bothering anyone, they all had their own crazy kids too. Not that it was chaotic, but just general kid stuff. There was plenty for them to do to get tired out so me and my husband had our evenings to site the patio n have a drink or order a pizza n watch a movie. Plus all the activities gave my husband and kids lots of memories of all the fun things they did together. I am usually a Hilton guest, since we get credit card points there, but this hotel was ten times better then any Hilton I've been to- family wise. All the activities, were free. Or almost free, and kept everyone busy and happy when we were tired of the beach. It didn't hurt that there was a poolside bar next to the playground and pools too ;) 10 outta 10!!!
