Although we live near the soft and beautiful sand beaches of St. Pete, we had an opportunity to stay at the Ron Jon Caribe Resort for one night. We had a 2 br suite overlooking the pool. My husband and I brought our daughters and their friends making it 5 teens (16-18). The unit was spacious and well decorated. Knowing that 2 kids would be on the pullout we brought a blowup mattress and were glad we did. Check in is at 4 but they will give you a wristband to enjoy the facilities. We also packed our big comfy beach towels. (Easy to do if you're driving.) That was key. They give you paper thin towels to use until your room is ready and you can get the "real" pool towels. The "real" towels are longer than the others but just as thin.
Pools are very nice and slide fun. Volleyball net in pool - nice touch. Beach is short walk- across a parking lot but there's a shuttle if you can't walk well. Chairs and umbrellas are available for a cost but is recommended if you don't like the hard packed sand.
Kids loved it. One day was enough for us. Had dinner in Cocoa Beach. Ate at Cocoanuts on the water with outside beach deck and live music. Great atmosphere. Food acceptable. Perfect little getaway for us.
Pros: kitchen nicely stocked. Nice pool bar. Clean. Great patio. Spacious. n/s facility. Perfect location to cruise ships.
Cons: uncomfortable pullout. Cheap pool and bath towels. -but certainly nothing to ruin our stay.
Timeshare tour-They were accommodating time wise. Tours are betw 9 and 2:30. Check out at 10am. Did tour at 11. Would have preferred doing a tour closer to 4 pm instead of taking prime, middle-of-the day time to do it. It was not a high pressure pitch- which was appreciated.
