“Awesome and relaxing”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

my husband and I went to RJCC the year they opened through another vacation club and ended up buying a 2 bedroom oceanfront. We've taken many family members and friends through the years and they are always happy and surprised and the size of the condo and comforts of home. Owners can call ahead and request a unit on 3rd floor or above for the view and a double balcony, so far we have always been able to get our requests. We did not know there were 2 layouts when we bought in. Convenience to Orlando is a big plus.
Everyone (especially the grandkids) loves watching the cruise ships, including Disney, come in and out of port. We've seen the nuclear subs come in and NASA launches.
The beds (except sofa bed) are very comfortable. Even with eight people there is enough room to not feel crowded. Very clean and well maintained. Tram to pool is very helpful. The restaraunt menu is very limited and overpriced is my only real complaint, and I wish the annual fee had not doubled. We don't spend the extra for the exchange with RCI since we like to go back every year.

Room Tip: Love the oceanfront view and the quiet.

We stayed in an oceanfront 2br. The rooms are spacious, well-maintained and very comfortable. The waterpark was fantastic and easy to walk to from the oceanfront units (tram ride available). The hot tub area is large. You will always find a nice place to relax at the pool. We could consistently find a table to sit at by the pool. The movie theater had a great selection of movies. 9 holes of putt putt are located near the entrance and the area is well maintained. Awesome grill that serves food poolside with reasonable prices. You won't be disappointed! Check out Jetty Park, which is located next to the property.

Room Tip: Request an oceanfront villa, 2br., if you don't want to stay around the busy pool building (ther...

Stayed at the Ron Jon over Memorial Day weekend (May 24-29, 2013) and had a wonderful time. Resort is clean, very tropical in decor, pool/water slide/lazy river area was immaculately kept. Every person that works there whether at the front desk, pool area, bar, or Ron Jon Grill Restaurant was very friendly and informative. We stayed in a 2 bedroom deluxe suite that slept 10 and there were 8 of us. Plenty of room but couldn't imagine 10 people in there! As a parent of a teenager and twin 8 year old sons I felt very comfortable letting my children have the freedom to go anywhere in the pool area without me. Plenty of lifeguards and staff around. The resort is actually is in Cape Canaveral very close to the port and it was fun to see the cruise ships coming in and out. Very close to Cocoa Beach, restaurants, and shopping. Would highly recommend the Ron Jon!

Any amenities you would love to experience were readily available to you on site. Beachfront property, complete water park including large pool, volley ball area, separate huge water slide, Jacuzzi areas, kiddie pool. lazy river, gym, and restaurant. There is also a movie theater for rainy days and on sunny days there is miniature golf as well. There is something for everybody and the staff is wonderful!

We recently spent 1 night here before departing on a Disney cruise. We had a 2 bedroom villa for 2 adults and 3 kids and it was plenty of room. The room was clean and well furnished, and had a nice view of the pool and waterpark. It included a washer and dryer (and they provided the detergent), which was very helpful. The beach was enjoyed by all, and we didn't find the tram to be a nuisance. The water park and the pools were terrific, and it was easy to watch the kids while enjoying some shade along the side. We were able to use the facilities as soon as we arrived (before noon) although our rooms were not yet ready, which was very helpful. They also helped arrange transportation to our ship the next morning through a shuttle service.

While I wouldn't personally choose to go here for a full week's vacation (in those cases, I would prefer to have more dining options onsite and more excursions very nearby), we all thoroughly enjoyed the resort for our short stay and would recommend it for a quick cruise stopover or a long weekend.

We recently stayed a week after being at Summer Bay near Orlando. Cape Canaveral is a different type of town than Orlando, which we discovered immediately. There seems to be a slightly more seedy feel to the place as it is a port and Military town. After being in Disney and surrounding area it was odd to see strip clubs.

However, at the resort you are in a different atmosphere altogether. We would definitely return as we have a small family and they seem to cater to our genre there. If we were just a couple, younger or older I likely wouldn't choose this resort. However seeing as how we have two small children ages 6 / 3 it was almost perfect.

We stayed down in the beach front condos. The wood construction made it easy for you to hear your neighbors unfortunately. The unit above us enjoyed moving their furniture around the tile floors all hours of the day - likely the small children as it seemed to stop in in the evening. As well, you could hear people when they were partying. However, as mentioned it is a family resort and when you have small children the party doesn't typically go past about 11 as they need to get up early.

We had a couple of issues with the appliances within the suite. The garbarator clogged and the dishwasher backed up in the sink and overflowed - that made a mess. But the staff was quick to respond and fixed everything immediately. We asked for more towels one day and they cleaned the entire suite.

The play area inside was great for the 1 cooler day we had. The pool and waterslide were perfect. My son hit is nose on the side of the pool and hurt himself. Immediately he had 3 pool staff there making sure he was o.k. and getting him an ice pack. They were over the top helpful which I didn't expect of 3 younger guys. Drinks at the pool were cheap at happy hour and the staff was again very polite and courteous.

The beach was close to our part of the resort and the children enjoyed it. We saw dolphins in the wild from the pier as well as turtles and lots of other fish and birds. As well we enjoyed watching the cruise ships come and go.

All in all there were a couple of hiccups but in the end we determined we would definitely go back.

AMAZING PLACE. LOW PRESSURE TIMESHARE PRESENTATION. SEE LAST PARAGRAPH FOR TIMESHARE INFO. We loved this place. It is about 40 minutes from Orlando airport. The toll was $2.00 each way. Waterpark in the front, beach in the back. Movie theater, mini golf, a basketball court, 2 magic shows, and an animal show. What more can you ask for?

We left the resort to go to Jungle Adventures and on a horseback riding tour. We also took a short ride down to Cocoa Beach Pier and Ron Jon's Surf Shop. We really didn't feel like we needed to leave this resort. We had an oceanfront room. Ocean view, 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, very, very clean. We went grocery shopping (short distance) and ate out on the balcony on most days. Check in / Check out took 2 minutes. I had trouble with their WiFi but they have a media center with a 2 computers and printer - fee of charge. I used the computers repeatedly without any problem.

The waterpark is awesome. Huge pool, volleyballs, waterfall, lazy river, huge slide. You can see the cruise boats leave port from the top of the slides. It was great these ships so close. The movie theater had a great selection of movies. You can bring your own popcorn and drinks. The beach is clean and the water is shallow. Waves were great and the water was warm. Staff was so nice. We went to a couple of activities and the staff that hosted these events were wonderful.
Free magic show, $5 magic show (per person) and $3 animal show (per person) were all great. Best part is they were all at the resort.

I got a deal on this place because we went to a timeshare presentation. I went in prepared to fight to get out of buying a timeshare but didn't need to fight. They do their presentation and you just say no. They offer a few different options and they say fine to your "No." I got a little upset because I warned the guy that I would not stay over the 90 minutes. Well he ran over and when I said we had to go, he said, "OK, you can go." Honestly, the first guy we had really dragged things out, but the next guy that we were passed onto was great. The timeshares are crazy expensive, but if you traveled a lot you end up with a yearly vacation for about $1000 (after paying for the timeshare week). In the end, we got this week from Cocoa Beach Marketing for $500 less just for going to a 90 minute timeshare meeting.

Nothing bad to say. Loved every minute of the experience. Our kids are 9 and 12 and never got bored.

Room Tip: If you are thinking of buying a timeshare, look for a resale. I have begun my research and it seems...
