“Nice Pool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We stayed at this resort as part of a package "Hotel & Cruise". Check in is 4:00 but they let us check in early around 12:00 ...which worked out great for our cruise time...Same on our return...They have parking for $ 5.95 which is a lot less then Port Canaveral. There is construction going on some of the buildings , so check and make sure your not near it or the housekeeping area both are noisy...The beach front room views are blocked by hedges ..there's the shallow water pirate pool ,it has water slides etc for kids and a large pool for everyone..The rooms and grounds are clean and well maintained.Mambos a tropical restaurant and bar is on the premises ..The beach on one side,.The main road the other side, stores and restaurants are within walking distance..wish I had more time to stay there...

I made reservation - non refundable to the International Palms Resort - upon our arrival we were placed in a family room which we had reserved - but they were doing construction two door down. I called and asked if they had any other rooms and if we could possible upgrade. They were helpful and let us look at another room and we did upgraded. We got into the room and the freezer was frozen up and we had to move to the room next door. The staff helped us move and made our stay great. They were helpful - polite and everyone was so friendly and especially Adam J. with Guest Services. The room was clean - the Bar had great food and music thanks to Jan the manager. The swimming pools were great and the kids loved the pirate ship. Hope you enjoy your visit and if we go back to Cocoa Beach, I would stay there again.

Let me start out by saying sorry for playing musical rooms. As for the construction, we are very happy to say "we are finished in that area" and it looks great! Besides that, it sounds like you enjoyed the rest of your stay and our staff. I'm glad this made up for the 1st half of your stay.
Thank you for your feedback and we look forward to your return!

After being booked here against my will by a travel agency, I looked at the website and was surprised to arrive to find the hotel really looked nothing like a resort or the pictures on the website. It has a cheap feel and I'd go somewhere else If I ever need to stay in Cocoa Beach again. The plus is the proximity to the beach (it's right on it), but the rooms and everything about he property is outdated and shoddy feeling. Definitely ask for a room far away from the pool if noise keeps you up at night. You can hear everything in the next room and from outside.

Room Tip: Do not choose a room by the pool or hot tub, it was very loud.

You want to relax, hit the beach, great whirlpool, heated pool, and a gym.-- Stay here its great.
Close to almost everything you need to shop and Casino Cruise Ship and Cape Caneveral. The hotel is clean - i never saw a bug and that is great. Cocao Beach at its best.

Room Tip: They are all pretty much clean and close to beach

This is fine if you're just looking for an average hotel on the beach to stay in, but it's NOT a resort. It's a former Holiday Inn plus a bunch of other nearby hotels all together.

I guess the management is working on improvements, (there was evidence of construction) but there's still a ways to go. Chipped mirrors... faded carpet.... our door didn't close completely... cracked paint... pools of water in the parking lot... cracked tennis court... crooked and faded signs... on and on and on. TOutside of the lovely lobby, the whole thing just seemed second-rate.

The employees suffered from comparison to our mini-stop at Downtown Disney and lunch at the Ron Jon resort. Our servers at the the breakfast grill were terrific. Otherwise the employees seemed pissed and unhappy to even be there. We did get room towels on request but there were no towels at the pool and the front desk had none when we went looking for them. Guy selling beach chairs pressured us to get an umbrella. Guy at the gift shop didn't want to bother with letting us pay for chairs there "because it's a pain." And so on and so on.

The bar (and bartender) is nice and it's right on the beach. Breakfast was pretty good and prices not hideous. The foliage was nice. But the set-up of the property is really confusing and it takes a lot of navigating to get from one place to another.

It's fine if you just want an average hotel, but don't go here looking for a resort experience. For that in the Cocoa Beach area, I'd suggest Ron Jon's Cape Carribe. We had lunch there and it was gorgeous.

My family and I decided to take a last minute vacation to recharge from the holidays and get away from the cold. My husband booked the International Palms Resort, packed our suitcases, loaded the kids into the car, and headed to Florida. BEST DECISION EVER! We had such a wonderful time. The moment we pulled up we were greeted by the staff who immediately began to assist us with our luggage, and checking in. The check in process was effortless and the team behind the counter really made us feel at home. After getting settled into our room we headed down to the pool where the kids swam and played and I was able to get some much needed "me" time with a fruity drink and sun in my face. Even though we had transportation to travel further out we found ourselves dinning at Mambos and Captains Grill every day. Not only was the staff friendly and fast, but our food was delicious too. We could tell the resort was going through some upgrades but not once were we put out or bothered with any noise. Our family had such a wonderful trip that not only will we be telling our friends and family about the International Palms Resort but we have decided to make going there a new family tradition! Thanks again, International Palms Resort staff, for making our family feel as if we were your number one priority! See you next year!

Room Tip: We chose a room with a king bed an area that is sectioned off with bunk beds! My kids felt like they...

We skipped a night at the Hilton in Orlando and moved here - a definite disappointment! I got bed bug bites in the room we were in the first night, which overlooked the tennis courts. It smelled funny and seemed old. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We were moved to beachfront for the next 2 nights, which helped us feel better about the place in general. It looks great from the street, not so great inside the rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for beachfront.

Regarding your comments about being bitten by bed bugs in your room, we have a pest inspection company that visits the hotel regularly and thoroughly inspects the rooms. To date, we have never had a report come back positive for bed bug activity in any of our rooms.

We thank you again for your alerting us in regards to your experience. Bed bugs in the U.S. is a widely recognized problem which has affected not only the hotel industry, but hospitals, college dormitories and private multiple dwellings as well. It is suspected that this problem is a direct result of increased international travelers since bed bugs are easily transported in suitcases, purses and clothing, etc.
We do have an aggressive pest control policy in place which includes regularly scheduled professional inspections to prevent infestation from occurring. We have also trained our housekeeping & maintenance personnel to assist in early recognition of an infestation. These standard procedures require that the room be quarantined until a thorough inspection by professionals be conducted. This policy has been fully executed in this case.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Thank you
Dustin S.
