“Pleasantly surprised!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2009

We went for a long weekend to visit our son and family who live in Virginia Beach. We were able to get a RCI 'Last Call' week for at the Ocean Key Resort. The only unfortunate thing for the trip is that our flights gave us only three nights at the resort. I had read previous reports for this resort and saw that it received either a 1 star or 5, not much in-between. So I decided to call the resort and inquire about the discrepancy. I was told that floors 4 and 5 were going to receive renovation, hence 1 star. The floors above, i.e. 6 to 9 had received renovation. We were able to get on the 9th floor looking into the bay (not the ocean). I did look at those that look due east towards that ocean and those units had a nice balcony to view the water from.
The kitchen was tight, but doable. We had the entire family (8 of us) over for dinner one night and it worked ok. The kitchen was very well supplied. The bed and bedroom was very comfortable. The only minor with the bedroom was that the window was very small. The pool was small, but adequate to have family fun with our little ones.
We did crafts a couple days with our grandchildren and had a real good time. Ben, at the resort was wonderful with the setup. The gym is kind a weird location, but doable as well.
Overall, I would return to this resort. They have done very good at their renovation.
Anyway, that's what I think about that. Enjoy!
