“Fantastic Week !!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

The 2 bedroom units are very spacious and have laundry facilities inside your unit is so convenient. Bedrooms are large and have enough clothing space, shower in master bath was
great, excellent water pressure. There are 3 tv's in unit so no one can complain. Also ceiling fans in living room and both bedrooms to keep air circulating - very nice. Theater room where movies are shown about 4 times per day, varied titles and ratings for kids or adults at night. They had free bingo 3 times a week with prizes and crafts at minimal charge. The beach was very nice, but never too crowded. Hotel provided beach chairs, umbrellas and water gear for daily or weekly fee. Plenty of parking close to hotel in front and on the side at no charge. Only thing that could improved the week was if resort had shuffleboard court or mini-golf course on
site. They could possibly remove some weeds between resort and beach and put these items
in. There used to be a horseshoes court but it had gone by the wayside, But they did have
games and puzzles you could take to your room to use during time not at the pool or the beach,

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor and loved it , our view of ocean was great, we had little noise, and we co...

We stayed here in 2009 but our room was book thru vrbo & the room in 2009 was beautiful. We had a 2 bedroom & the living room & master both had breathtaking views of the ocean with a large balcony with room for many people. This time we got a corner 2 bedroom unit & very disappointed. Very small balcony with only 2 chairs. You cannot see the pier. We got in at 10:30pm after a 12 hour drive only to listen to the toilet run every 20 min all night long. We were too tired & not in the mood for maintenance that late at night but went down right away at 7am. Maintenance did fix that day. Beds are horrible sound like they will fall apart everytime you move. Unit was definitely not cleaned before we checked in. Beautiful view just dont get a corner unit & stay 5th floor or higher. Very disappointed with the unit this time when we requested room like last stay. Would not pay the price again nor stay here again since no guarantee of your unit.

This was our second year at this resort. We exchanged into DBR via RCI. The 2 BR units are large and will accommodate 4 people easily and 6 if someone doesn't mind the sleep sofa in the living room. The views are fantastic. There is a w/d in every unit. There are chairs for the beach and beach toys to rent at a reasonable price. The staff is extremely accommodating. One day, we had 10 people visiting from Orlando. The staff graciously gave each a wrist ban so they could swim and parking passes so they could park. The place is getting tired but we found it clean and very enjoyable. You can't beat the location with Publix across the street, dining places within walking distance, and approximately an hour from Orlando.

The negatives can be if you have a noisy bunch over your unit and the bed in the master bedroom was a bit harder than we are used to. That happens anywhere you go.

Room Tip: No advice. I'd take any of them. Obviously the higher you go up, the better the view but there i...

We were moved here by RCI after not being satisfied with original booked room. This place is great! All the staff is inviting! They all speak to you and are always smiling. Several different employees helped with us with dining options. Our room is spacious and beautiful! Next time we visit this area, we will definitely request this resort! Thank you to all the staff for making our stay a great one!

This is our third year at this resort. ALL of the staff is so friendly and courteous. Some of the units are still dated but kept clean. Every unit (3rd floor and above) have good-great views. Our unit was on the third floor and had a nice angled view to the beach from the kitchen. The higher you go you need to get closer to the sliders to see the waves at the beach. We LOVED listening to the crashing waves for our entire week visit...no A/C needed but close the solid drapes for a few hours in the morning until the sun passes. Its a great place to stay.

Room Tip: select from 3rd floor and above to see the beach and waves

Our family of 4 arrived in Cocoa Beach with out a plan and stumbled across this fantastic place! The front desk staff were so helpful and let us check in early. The oceanfront 2 bedroom condo was GREAT!! Reasonable prices, good food, great drinks at the tiki bar!! It was so nice to be able to rent the beach accessories with out having to purchase them too. So helpful when you are traveling from out of town. We will return....NO DOUBT ABOUT IT!!

We decided to try a new place for our family Spring Break vacation. We typically stay in large resort areas on the coast of Florida that are much more expensive and larger properties. The location is perfect right on the beach! The property is older but WELL kept based on its age. The staff could not be nicer and we would strongly recommend this location for families that don't want to fight the crowds! We have stayed at 5 star resorts and not gotten a call from the staff asking "how our stay is and is there anything they can do for us." A first class touch! The food at the restaurant was good and very well priced. We will be back no question! The only complaint we would have is that they should have some rugs in the rooms because of the beach location, but no big deal.

Room Tip: All rooms are beach front!!!
