This was a great place to stay for an end to summer vacation. The resort is spacious and directly on the beach. We had three adults and two children and had plenty of room in the two bedroom "ocean view" room. (By the way for anyone that stays at beach hotels you already know the difference in ocean view and ocean front rooms, if not you may want to read up on the meaning) We enjoyed all aspects of the resort.
The room was nice and spacious. They had just replaced some of the furniture in all the rooms and looks like they are working on countertops next since there is a ton of marble in the parking lot. The room could use some touch up paint in spots and the tv in the 2nd bedroom wasn't a flat screen. Also, we happened to find the only dishwasher louder than our own. I talked with the front desk person for a little while and she gave us a great view actually. But not all rooms are set up that way. Based on floor and if you need lean a little the ocean could be more obstructed.
The pool was nice and was never crowded. The music can be a bit annoying depending on the volume and talent of the singers. The pool bar is fine for what it is. I know some people wished it stayed open longer, but it was open until around 5 or 6 each night we were there. I think this actually keep this place more family oriented vs. a party and drunk crowd. The hot tub is elevated and out of the way and a bit of a distance from the pool. We never used it. Was actually nice that the resort kept checking if people had their pool wrist bands and if they were supposed to be there. Nice to see a resort enforce its own rules for once.
They also have basketball and tennis courts, which you can borrow equipment from the front desk for. The kids playroom is ok at best. Not too impressive, but it did kill about 10 minutes for my 4 year old. The movie theater is nice and plays movies all day. The arcade is okay. The fitness center was really nice and enjoyed my time in it. We ate at the restaurant one night and enjoyed it. The service was slow, bu the food was good.
They have all sorts of activities going on around the resort. We only participated in a couple of them though. Everything thing we did or saw was nicely organized and supported well.
The beach is nice and right out the back door. You can rent beach chairs and an umbrella from the service which is on the path to the beach from the resort.
Overall, this was a great place to stay and we would definately come back if we wanted to stay in Cocoa Beach again.
