I made arrangements for my family of 53 people to stay at this hotel the night before our cruise on Carnival's Sensation. We arrived early (around 11am and check in was at 3pm) and the ladies at check-in explained the rooms were still being cleaned. They kept us informed every so often on the status of the rooms. They were extremely nice. So nice it was scary because I hadn't seen the rooms yet. Most of the family stayed in regular rooms with 2 doubles that were Sleep number beds. The decor of the rooms was your traditional Radisson upgrades - very fresh and bright navy blue and white theme. These rooms are entered from the outside (what you think of for motels but more tasteful). If you look at pictures that show the pink rooms, those are the suites which are located in a new attached building. The doors to these rooms are entered from the hallway. These rooms strickly resemble the pictures but don't exactly mimic the "Radisson" upgrades. To me Radisson needs to work on the suites decor now. Glad I didn't get one because I am VERY picky and would not have enjoyed the room due to its decor.
The transportation to the Port is really organized! The guy that handles this part of the resort is easy to work with and really on top of things. I recommend when you check-in or better yet, when you make your reservation that you contact the front desk and ask to be put on the list for shuttle service to the Port. They will tell you what time to be in the lobby. Just make sure you are there at that time. Some people get frustrated with the process, but if you get added to the list upon check in, at the latest, things run smoother. Don't listen to the other person that wrote the comment about the shuttle begining a nightmare (they must not have understood the process of signing up).
The resort's pool is wonderful. Not as large as the pictures look but it's verey nice and ample for a night's stay. At night it lights up and is really pretty.
I will say, the agents for this property are very nice and care about how you feel about their property. After reading a few reviews on multiple sites, I email my concerns and the exact quote to the property and ask them to address the claims in the review. They did honestly. And now that I have seen the property for myself, I'm not sure where those comments came from. There was a wedding and a retirement party in the hotel the same night and things were still organized and the staff was still available to service the hotel's regular guests.
I didn't even mention the seafood buffet that they had on Saturday evening. Check with the staff for prices. I remember they were very reasonable for the amout of seafood. However, McDonalds (whose layout is a nightmare when large numbers of people are present - but they have good service once you reach the register) is just across the street. A subway is on the same side of the street just a block over - definitely walking distance. There are also 2 other restaurants on each side of the resort but I didn't try them.
There's also a Putt Putt/BumperCars/Arcade one block away from the resort. You just have to walk across a grassy area to get to it. Very nice also!
I almost fogot to mention the 2 bars (one outside and one inside). Both are nice and reasonable. They also had a gentleman play jazz during the evening hours. Afterwards he moved to the inside bar and continued to play. This was also a nice touch.
Enjoy this property. We did for the one night. We will stay here again when we sail out of Port Canaveral.
