“Great weekend getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We took the grandkids for a long weekend and had loads of fun. It was a bit cool the weekend we were there but there are lots of activities to do inside too. The kids really loved the indoor playground. We only got in the pool 1 day, but the water was heated -- just a wild wind to cool ;you off when getting out. They could use a morning cafe as the grill isn't open early. We were in a studio apt. and found it to be fine for 4 people. Had pizza from the grill and it was pretty good and not expensive. We plan on coming back when the weather is a bit warmer. Still there was lots to do even in the chilly weather.

This is one of the best resorts we have stayed at. We are on the top floor overlooking the pool and the ocean. The rooms are beautifully decorated and maintained with lots of room. The pools are just amazing.....something for everyone. We can stand on our balcony and watch the cruise ships come and go out to sea. Early in the morning they arrive with all their lights blazing and its a beautiful site. There are so many things to do here that I don't think you could get bored. The beds are the most comfortable we have slept on. We hate to leave on Sunday but we'll be back for sure.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool. You can see the sunrise everymorning.

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.

The staff is very accomodating and friendly perfect for family fun. Ron Jon Resort is absolutely beautiful. You have the river park, beach, fishing and tons of stuff for every age child and adult. Close by is the Victory Casino Boat, Cape Canaveral and Disney

Room Tip: It is nice to look out your balcony at the pool area.

7 of us (4 adults and 3 young girls ages 9 - 13) spent Dec. 29th - Jan. 5th in a 2 bedroom villa. Loved it and the resort. Very spacious for all of us and had all of the amenities of home, except for a good egg pan (only issue). Thoroughly enjoyed the pool, hot tub (really hot), restaurant, game room (pool tables), happy hours, beach, and especially the weather. Would go back again in a heartbeat. Very friendly staff, except for one young "unhappy" girl at the store our first night. Spent New Years Eve on the beach with fireworks and great people. Shopped at the larger Ron Jon Store nearby which had some great deals. Also, visited Kennedy Space Center...NASA, great experience! Got a family 4 pack for $99 which was a good deal for full tour; IMAX; Space Shuttle Launch Experience. We would recommend this resort, especially to families...you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: had villa 1304 overlooking the miniature golf...nice and quiet! Had an eagle on a street light each...

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...
