We stayed at the Resort at Cocoa Beach for two nights prior to a cruise from Port Canaveral. We were late getting in to the resort due to bad weather (we drove from Orlando) but when we arrived, the front desk was very accommodating & check in was a breeze. As a reference - this property is located next door to the Hilton & they share the same beachfront.
I booked a 2 BR condo at this property as my husband & I were traveling with our three boys (ages 10, 12 & 12) and this was MUCH more economical that a hotel. The unit was VERY spacious, with twin beds in one room, king pullout couch in LR, and king bed in master BR. Master had its own bath with jacuzzi tub. Kids had their own bath & shower, and the layout of the place puts the LR between the two bedrooms for privacy :-)
This place was SPOTLESS and had fully stocked kitchen for a much longer stay. They provide beach towels for the pool & on-site beach and there is washer-dryer in the unit. They had an activities desk in the lobby that we did not use because we were there for such a short time. The only downside is that the on-site restaurant is not open for breakfast but you certainly stock up on groceries and eat in the unit. Markets and restaurants are very close, as are other shops, including RonJon Surf Shop.
We toured NASA & Kennedy space center the day before our cruise & loved that. MAKE SURE to allow for time to get to the Astronaut Hall Of Fame which was really the highlight of the experience. It is located away from the main visitor center so a car would be necessary. Since we flew into Orlando from LAX, we rented there but dropped off in Cocoa Beach & had the rental car company shuttle us to the cruise terminal. Hertz, Thrifty and Avis all have locations here.
If you are planning on visiting Orlando and want to spend time on the coast, I would definitely recommend this resort. It is a great economical choice for families and our unit could easily have handled up to 6 guests. Total price (the best part) for 2 nights??? Only $130 including taxes.....What a deal!
