“What a difference a few years make!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I have reviewed this resort before and felt it was slipping. We go every year as we own a time share there. Last time, we felt the cleanliness and decor were going down hill a little and the front desk staff were not very professional. This past November, we felt the complete opposite to be true!

We arrived early for check in as we always do and the front desk could not have been nicer. As a matter of fact, we felt as though we got a whole extra day because a room was ready when we arrived and we were allowed to check in at 10:00am!

The decor has been slowly updated over the last few years and is MUCH nicer and less "kitchy" than before. Gone is the fish wallpaper in the guest bath and the silly dusty fake plants. The rooms and bathrooms were spotless and the toilet flushed first time, every time. New decor is lovely and toned down which makes it much classier.

I don't know if the staff at the front desk has been sent to charm school or what, all I know is they were outstanding as was the entire vacation. We always loved this place (or we would not have bought a time share there) and now we feel very good about the check we write for our maintenance fees each January. They put them to good use.

A special shout out to the front desk staff for their kindness. They rocked this time!

Room Tip: Always ask for double balcony-ocean front, not ocean view!

We took our daughter, son-in-law and their 2 kids with us and it was great. Right on the beach, Nice pool with play area for little ones. The entertainment at pool side was nice too. The accomodations were very nice and roomy. 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, wsher/dryer and full kitchen with ample dining area. Would go back again. Nice and clean and staff very helpful and friendly. Also not far from lots of attractions.

We have stayed twice now at this resort. Resort is on the beach with lovely ocean views. Large spacious units with fully equipped kitchen and laundry. Mid week cleaning service and daily towel exchange and extra dish washing supplies as you need. Great pool with pool bar and pool side live music. Our children enjoyed the visit from the Jungle Adventure wild life show, a chance to see these creatures up close and personal. We enjoyed the morning water aerobics class. We were able to watch night time rocket launches from the beach. A relaxing and enjoyable weeks stay at this resort, helpful and accommodating staff.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the ocean view.

This is a wonderful resort right on the beach. We have stayed here six or seven times and every visit has been fantastic. The two bedroom, two bathroom units are fully furnished with a full-size kitchen and washer/dryer. The pool area is great for families. There's a special area just for kids and there are plenty of chairs and umbrellas. There's also a place to purchase food and drinks right next to the pool.

The rooms are always spotless and any concerns you might have are addressed quickly. The staff are also very helpful and there's a concierge to help plan any trips to Orlando or in the Cocoa Beach area. The Mexican restaurant in the resort is also fantastic. Their lunch specials are very reasonably priced and the food is always good.

If you are looking for a relaxing trip to a beautiful, uncrowded beach, this is the place!

We were very lucky to have an ocean view room on the 7th floor. We spent many hours on our balcony watching the dolphins swimming, cruise liners in the distance and a couple of weddings on the beach. The apartment was very spacious, very comfy bed, super jacuzzi bath in the master bathroom and lots of comfortable seating in the lounge area. Plenty of utensils in the kitchen and washer/dryer as well.

We ate at the Mexican restaurant once - great food. Lots of restaurants nearby as well as Publix and Walmart.

The staff at the resort are all very friendly and helpful, we received a phone message each day advising resort activities of which there were many and were not asked to attend an RCI meeting.

Would recommend this resort for a relaxing vocation with great views of the ocean.

We stayed at the Resort at Cocoa Beach last week, switching over to the Oceanique in Indian Harbour today. The latter is much nicer.

At Cocoa Beach, it really depends on which unit you get, since most people who come here come for the ocean views. Ocean view is not ocean front, and if you're in ocean view, you get a very minimal look at the ocean. If you are not an owner, or you did not exchange through RCI you can't upgrade to oceanfront, even if the units are empty. That doesn't bode well for us Interval International folks. The front desk gal tried to hit us up for $180. a night, to upgrade.

Some of the great things about the resort are: work out club (but no free weights) tennis courts, and very spacious, well equipped units with a washer and dryer. Having said that, the carpeting is either very old or needs to be cleaned because my allergies really acted up. There was a musty smell in our unit--number 309. When you exit the elevator, you have to go through swinging glass doors which have a very strong "spring back" are are thus pretty scratched. The stairwells are not near the elevators and don't have easy access to the outside.

The pool is not on the ocean side of the resort; rather, the parking lot/garage side. And as I said above, most people who come down here come for the ocean. At the Oceanique, the pool is right by the ocean.

The hot tub area is up a lengthy set of stairs, and there are no chairs or tables up there, as though they're discouraging using it. The quality of the movies in the little theater is pretty poor, so although that feature is touted, it really isn't much.

On the plus side, there's free Wi-fi and the Mexican Restaurant is GREAT!!! Not only is the food delicious and service fantastic, the prices are very reasonable. My husband and I ate there twice with drinks with a tab under $40.00. Really, really good. There's a Publix supermarket very close, so that's good.

In the unit, there is no large bowl for mixing salads, so I recommend bringing one.

The Resort at Cocoa Beach is a good get if you need two bedrooms and two baths, and if you're not picky about having an ocean view. I think they should get rid of the carpets and just have the tile floors, personally.

Finally, we LOVED the hot but in the master bath. Great size for two people and strong jets.

Room Tip: Unless you own or happen to get an oceanfront from someone who put it up for trade you may be disapp...

We stayed for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The weather was stormy with Hurricane Sandy, but the staff kept us well informed. Drove into Disney a couple times so this location is great for the attractions but far enough away to have quiet beach time. Lots of food and fun close by.
