“Great Family resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Loved the resort and all they had to offer. Condo was big enough for a family of 5. Kids loved everything they offered. We ate one time at the Grill. It was good. The beach was great. No problems taking the tram. Pool was great. We would go to the beach in the morning, come back for lunch and then go to the pool. Went to a movie and the animal show. My kids loved the playroom. We also had fun with put put golf. Overall, we would definately go back.

This resort was totally family oriented. Large pool. Lazy river. 1 water slide. My kids 15-12-10 had a blast but there were a few things that would have been nice but not necessary. Slide and lazy river close between 5-7pm every day at the lifeguards discretion. Kids wanted to play longer. Beach was a shuttle ride away on the property where the time shares were. Had to plan for that trip and pack everything. Real crowds were at Cocoa Beach Parks which was a short drive and you pay for parking if you can find it. Watching the cruise ships go in and out was fun though. Disney Dream leaves Sunday afternoon and sounds off all of its foghorn tunes as it leaves. Bring your own beach towels if you want to layout comfortably. Towels provided were small, rough and thin. Food was average. Many other good local food spots close though. Full kitchen and washer and dryer were nice! Very clean spacious rooms but could use a little updating. 4-5 days was enough for us unless you have other things to do or your teenager meets a "friend". Kennedy Space Center is close and was awesome for kids that will sit still, listen, and can understand how awesome what they are seeing really is. Highly recommended but might be rough and hot with stroller aged kids.
Might not sound like it but it was a great vaca! Nice to relax in a condo like setting and not a crowded room. We had a 2 bedroom. One bedrooms only had a shower. Two bedrooms had a corner tub and 2 showers.
Bring your boogie boards.

my husband and I went to RJCC the year they opened through another vacation club and ended up buying a 2 bedroom oceanfront. We've taken many family members and friends through the years and they are always happy and surprised and the size of the condo and comforts of home. Owners can call ahead and request a unit on 3rd floor or above for the view and a double balcony, so far we have always been able to get our requests. We did not know there were 2 layouts when we bought in. Convenience to Orlando is a big plus.
Everyone (especially the grandkids) loves watching the cruise ships, including Disney, come in and out of port. We've seen the nuclear subs come in and NASA launches.
The beds (except sofa bed) are very comfortable. Even with eight people there is enough room to not feel crowded. Very clean and well maintained. Tram to pool is very helpful. The restaraunt menu is very limited and overpriced is my only real complaint, and I wish the annual fee had not doubled. We don't spend the extra for the exchange with RCI since we like to go back every year.

Room Tip: Love the oceanfront view and the quiet.

We stayed in an oceanfront 2br. The rooms are spacious, well-maintained and very comfortable. The waterpark was fantastic and easy to walk to from the oceanfront units (tram ride available). The hot tub area is large. You will always find a nice place to relax at the pool. We could consistently find a table to sit at by the pool. The movie theater had a great selection of movies. 9 holes of putt putt are located near the entrance and the area is well maintained. Awesome grill that serves food poolside with reasonable prices. You won't be disappointed! Check out Jetty Park, which is located next to the property.

Room Tip: Request an oceanfront villa, 2br., if you don't want to stay around the busy pool building (ther...

Stayed at the Ron Jon over Memorial Day weekend (May 24-29, 2013) and had a wonderful time. Resort is clean, very tropical in decor, pool/water slide/lazy river area was immaculately kept. Every person that works there whether at the front desk, pool area, bar, or Ron Jon Grill Restaurant was very friendly and informative. We stayed in a 2 bedroom deluxe suite that slept 10 and there were 8 of us. Plenty of room but couldn't imagine 10 people in there! As a parent of a teenager and twin 8 year old sons I felt very comfortable letting my children have the freedom to go anywhere in the pool area without me. Plenty of lifeguards and staff around. The resort is actually is in Cape Canaveral very close to the port and it was fun to see the cruise ships coming in and out. Very close to Cocoa Beach, restaurants, and shopping. Would highly recommend the Ron Jon!

Any amenities you would love to experience were readily available to you on site. Beachfront property, complete water park including large pool, volley ball area, separate huge water slide, Jacuzzi areas, kiddie pool. lazy river, gym, and restaurant. There is also a movie theater for rainy days and on sunny days there is miniature golf as well. There is something for everybody and the staff is wonderful!

We recently spent 1 night here before departing on a Disney cruise. We had a 2 bedroom villa for 2 adults and 3 kids and it was plenty of room. The room was clean and well furnished, and had a nice view of the pool and waterpark. It included a washer and dryer (and they provided the detergent), which was very helpful. The beach was enjoyed by all, and we didn't find the tram to be a nuisance. The water park and the pools were terrific, and it was easy to watch the kids while enjoying some shade along the side. We were able to use the facilities as soon as we arrived (before noon) although our rooms were not yet ready, which was very helpful. They also helped arrange transportation to our ship the next morning through a shuttle service.

While I wouldn't personally choose to go here for a full week's vacation (in those cases, I would prefer to have more dining options onsite and more excursions very nearby), we all thoroughly enjoyed the resort for our short stay and would recommend it for a quick cruise stopover or a long weekend.
