“Expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here as Tropical Cyclone Andrea was heading this way. Couldn't use facilities etc as the weather was bad so I am just giving them a 4 and as they can't control the weather I'd have to stay here again to pass an opinion on the resort facilities. I think my 4 is generous. Room was great. We had a full kitchen, lounge room and small porch. Easy parking, nice staff. Cost of one night here got me two at the Best Western. For a place to my rest my head it would be Best Western but I guess if I had small kids to amuse I might stay here

Family Fun, Mom/Dad, 4 kids (ages 14, 10, 9, 3). Entrance clean, beautifully decorated in caribbean theme. Check-in polite, professional, and quick. Rooms clean and updated. No daily maid service so keep your place clean. Kitchen has most utensils and needs. Restaurant food was great, especially the burgers. Bar...ok, plastic solo cups don't keep cold drinks COLD very long. Pool/Resort area clean, well kept, main pool was great fun for all. Slide was fun without being too thrilling for the extremely young or old. Lazy river was great for all, cruising around with the occasional water feature, my 3 year old absolutley loved the Lazy River, I think we went around 30+ times over 4 days. Jacuzzi/Hot tub was big and hot, probably 102+. No lifeguards are on duty (decrease liability) but pool staff are vigilent (in a good way, and always polite) in enforcing the pool area rules. Gated pool area very centrally located, your kids won't be far from you. Only negative, BRING YOUR OWN POOL TOWELS. The supplied pool towels are dinky gym towels, your only allowed one per guest and switching them out is painfully located down a south hall inside the hotel, when you're wet and have a wet towel...you're out of luck. I guess this cuts down on linen because towel exchange is minimized because it's too inconvenient.

For kids of all ages is a arcade (bring cash, crane games are 50 cents per game, and most others are $1.00 each go round), a movie theater playing from 9 a.m. til 11 p.m.with family/kid friendly in the morningafternoon progressing to PG-14 or R in the evening. Also the kiddie playground is hours of fun. Indoors, well air conditioned, and can probably hold 100+ kids, with crawl tubes, ropes, slides, ball pit, ladders.

Are we going back, definitely. Maybe next time we will feel the need to see the beach (a block away) because this trip we had all we needed at the resort.

Room Tip: North rooms get a view of passing ships through the port canal, east facing rooms most likely have a...

This resort has it all. Beautifully landscaped and the resort is huge. Each condo is privately owned and you "rent" from them. The interior is very nicely decorated and comes with everything you need from dish soap, laundry detergent and so on. My ONLY complaint is that when you leave, they expect YOU to clean everything from the linens to taking out the trash. For that kind of $$ they should clean it.

The huge pool with a small water fountain is very nice. The lazy river was extremely fun, just beware that you HAVE to have a tube to sit on while in it. The water slides are fun as well. The children’s water splash playground was loved by our little ones.

This place has a small movie theater, a HUGE indoor playground with tunnels, slides and activity room. Putt putt is on the premises between the buildings. An indoor/outdoor restaurant with good food there. Everything you could possibly want and never have to leave.

Restaurants are a short distance away. The ships pass right beside the property. The beach is a short walk away at the back of the property. I would highly recommend this place.

I loved this place, staff was friendly and resort was clean. The pool was awesome and everybody loved the lazy river and slide. The lazy river was my favorite thing to do. The beach was ok for a public beach. The trolleys run every few minutes to take you to the beach.

Room Tip: I loved sitting on my balcony and watch cruise ships come in to port.

Again, like I said about the Roberto's Cuban Restaurant in Cocoa Beach, we came here because of a recommendation in a dated travel article from the NY Times. I should have known better. The article was about 7 years old. But this place is very average at best. The type of people who come here are pretty tacky, so it seems to cater to that. The hotel décor in the lobby, the hotel grounds, the rooms are all pretty average to substandard. However,the people who work there are nice and helpful. But I think in general, you could do a lot better at the Radisson or some other place in town instead.

We stayed 4th of July week. There was 100's of kids here rightfully for the forth. Many were unsupervised and doing back flips into the pool and roughhousing, pool staff said nothing 90% of the time. The room was way to small for 4 as there were 3 of us in a studio, 1 was 3 1/2 years old. The walls were paper thin, unit was near the elevator and tours went by all day long while my granddaughter was attempting to sleep. We never used the pool area, she loves the water and every time we took her down to the pool she cried and said she didn't want to go to that pool. She wanted to go to the pool at Grammy's hotel (Discovery Resort) as it was more mellow and there weren't 4 or 5 adults laying in the children's pool area. The larger pool area was littered with children and parents on the stairs, there was no access for my toddler enter. I called and asked for a wake up call at 5 am on the Monday morning as I had to go home to work 2 hours away...there was fire alarms 3 times from 12 am - 3 am with everyone out in the parking lot in our pajamas....at 5:30 I awoke to my phone alarm and called the front desk to thank them. On the Friday check out was 10 am we called and told them about Monday and asked for a wake up at 8:30 am and got 3 wake up calls at 5 am REALLY FUNNY!!!!!!!! The restaurant service was very slow but the food was great.

Room Tip: Don't get a room near the elevator......timeshare sales go by all day and unsupervised teenagers...
