Just back from a 2 night stay and had a great time. We stayed on the 14th floor in an oceanview 2 bedroom deluxe and it was nice-not sure what was delux about it but it was comfortable for 2 families with 3 kids under 4. Considering it was a busy holiday weekend, I think
things were as good as can be expected with so many people at
one place. All of the negative things
were a result of the holiday...I think. First, check-in took about hall an hour. Long line, but we got there
at 4pm on the dot. Next, parking
garage was a zoo and there are not
many extra spaces. Only 1 car per
reservation, additional cars will have
to park across at the city parking
garage for $10/day. Do not plan on
parking on the street. A) There
aren't many spots and B) I wouldn't
consider your vehicle safe. I hate
to say it since I am from the area,
but outside of the Oceanwalk is
pretty dirty-old area, cheap
housing, lots of homeless people. If
you have teenagers---don't let then wander around on the street. There is plenty to do at the Ocean Walk,
no need to go outside. So, parking was time consuming but
manageable. Next is trying to secure a luggage cart. Forget it from about 4-6! I asked and there are 6 carts! 6! For 800 rooms. Crazy. There are bellman and
honestly, it's worth it to pay them and let them do the work. You are on vacation... Why save $$$ at this point. Once we got parked the elevators were the next hurdle. After 25 minute wait we hoofed it up 8 flights of stairs with 2 three year olds and a 8 month old and as many bags as we could handle since we didn't get a cart. Once we got situated though, it was pretty much smooth sailing. Yes, the elevators are slow! Don't get in a
hurry or plan to take the stairs. About half the time we didn't wait at all, it just depends what time it is.
Few things to consider... If you are
going for peace and quiet look into
somewhere else (New Symrna Beach is nice and quiet) or go in the off season. If you want a very fun place with lots to do.... Bingo! There are great pools. The kiddie area is great, the lazy river is very nice, there is even a waterslide into one of the pools. Chairs were hard to come by after 8 but like I said...
Holiday weekend. Ppl get up early reserve seats with towels all day with out sitting down. I heard that if you point it out to security they will wait half an hour and if no one returns they will clear the chairs and let you have them. Sounds fair. security is out and about and seemed very helpful. Poolside bar was nice, sodas were only $2. Indoor pool was nice, they even host dive-in movies in the evening. Kids loved it. Beach was busy but since it's a no-drive area it's not unbearable. We sat at the very north end of the beach infront of
the resort and the crowd was thin. A vendor had chairs and umbrellas set up. $30/day gets you 2 lounge chairs and an umbrella. Good deal if you don't want to lug stuff back and forth. If you do though stuff seemed safe staying down at the beach
while ppl went back up to the hotel.
We visited the Ocean Walk Shoppes only once for dinner. Not our best idea-waited til 7:00 along with everyone else and every restaurant had 45-1 hour wait. Either go early or call in and get it to-go.
You can pretty much check in and not leave again until you check out. Bring food, snacks drinks-you will be set. Over all very fun place, just be sure to pack an extra dose of patience if you go during a busy time.
