“One of the best places to stay with children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

I loved this place, it had a great mix for the kids and the adults we had with us. We stayed in a suite that had a kitchen, laundry and balcony, it had more than enough room for 3 adults and 1 child. They have a little store in the lobby that you can buy food to cook with, the room comes with all the eating utensils that you need. The prices were not too bad considering if you don't know your way around there to go looking for cheaper food. They have a trolley service that will take you down to the beach and drop you off at their beach view resort, it takes about 2 minutes from there to get to the beach. The play area for the kids is great, they have a movie theater, games, and a swim play area, we were not lacking much to do. The staff was really nice too, if you get there before check in they will lock up your luggage for you so you can go about on the cape or visit the Kennedy Space Center without worrying about your luggage in the car. It is by the port so your views are a little limited, but if you like looking at all the cruise ships you should be happy/. I didn't mind because it is kinda hidden away from the overcrowded areas in Florida, so if you want a place you can walk to some nightlife this wouldn't be the one. It is a little pricey but I think you get a whole lot for it. We will definitely be back.

I have already written a few reviews on this resort when it was still Ron Jon Cape Caribe. We made our reservation before the ownership change. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I was not sure what to expect with the new ownership and if they would keep with the little things that the kids loved. The staff was very nice and our check-in went quickly. The only issues we had - 1) our key cards didn't work so we had to come back down to get them reset and 2) we had to go to an entirely different counter to get our parking pass.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom ocean view room. It was spotless and fully stocked. The kids loved the easy access to the beach and the waterpark.

Ron Jon's has kept the sundry shop and restaurant and they are still worth a visit even just for drinks and last minute beach wear.

We only got one request and it was a polite invitation to listen to the timeshare info. It was just a message left on our phone so nobody chased us down.

So what is better? I thought the efficiency of the staff and the cleanliness of the grounds was better. This continues to be one of our favorite getaways. I hope Holiday Inn takes good care of the resort and makes it better since it really has a lot of promise.

Room Tip: 4th floor has a great view of the ocean

Stayed here for 3 nights pre-cruise. First night a/c was broken in our unit. They had to call in for repairs. Couldn't be fixed that night so they moved all of us to a new unit just over night. Was a pain to move rooms at 10:30 at night with two kids. Also, staff was out watching fireworks instead of watching front desk. So then we had to wait for the room key and get everything straightened out after the maintenance man let us know of the situation. Once straightened out things improved. We gathered our stuff the next morning and headed our for the day and came back to a brand new a/c unit on July 4! Staff only discussed time share talk once on check in. There was no pressure when we said no thanks. Slide and lazy river close at 5. Could be better hours. We would stay again though.

The room for a family of four was expensive and VERY small. Hope you enjoy not having a cleaning service and exchanging your own towels, tp, soap,etc. as well as vacuuming. The first night was loud and noisy with people from next room... we were there five minutes before they started to try to sell us timeshares and tried to convince us to sit through 90+ minute presentations to get discounts on local attractions that they quoted grossly inaccurate rates for. talk About Tacky. We're here for a vacation not to waste time in a presentation...

We just stayed at HICV for a week with our kids and grandkids. There were 12 people total, between 2 rooms. The resort was clean, the kitchen adequately stocked (not like home, of course, but adequate), and overall a good place to stay. The pools, lazy river, and water slide definitely kept the kids happy. The tram to the beach was nice to use when you had a lot of "stuff" to take to the beach like we did with 12 people. The beach was not crowded, very nice! We also used their charcoal grills. They offered the usual "timeshare presentation" once and didn't hound us after we declined. It would be nice if they could charge food/drink purchases from the poolside grill/bar to your room. Overall, very happy with our stay!

We stayed for three nights beginning on July 3. We had a 2 bedroom condo, in the ocean side building. Obviously the staff has poor attention to detail and the walkway to the room was very dirty and had trash laying on the ground. Once we walked in the room we noticed mosquito's and gnats were all over the room so we spend an hour killing bugs. The appliances are in desperate need of replacement as the stove had rust on it, the toaster was all dented in. Also, if you come to this resort do your self a favor and don't leave the property because the surrounding area isn't pleasant at all. If you do come to this property be prepared to fend off the salesman as they are out to sell.

The only thing good that I can say about the property is the beach and pool are nice, but nothing else is

We have been owners for 7 years and have come here for the past 6 summers. This review is more for owners than the folks that are able to rent for a few nights.

Sat through an owner update that should have taken 1 hour (that was promised) and they stretched into 2 hours and never answered our questions. They wanted us to buy in their Orlando property since they couldn’t sell this property at this time. We felt as though we were treated as first time buyers. They did offer to purchase our interest here at what we paid for it to then use those funds to purchase in Orlando. Our person said it took longer because we had good questions…ones they never could answer. I still don’t understand how the Holiday Inn Club Vacations work. No one here could answer my questions. If you are not an owner this won’t affect your stay, but owners beware.

The new upgrades to the rooms are nice, these were started prior to Holiday Inn purchasing the property. The family room feels larger with the new design. The units were basically clean but there was a layer of dust on the top of the refrigerator. The appliances are not new and need replacing.

Mid week tidy service didn’t show up on the scheduled day and we had to talk to the front desk to get it done late. They weren’t sure they could get it done but it was completed.

Lazy river and kid play area closes at 5 during the week – just when kids should be coming back out. The lazy river has mold on the edges. This has been mentioned in other views but not addressed.

This is a good place for families with kids to stay for any length of stay. We do like the property. The improvements needed are with guest services and upkeep. Hopefully those will be corrected in the near future, if there’s anyone that is listening.
