Accommodations Review:

The hotel was perfect. We had six of us three children and three adults, (one being a gramma) so the room had plenty of sleeping space. The three children loved having their own Disney theme room and relaxing with their own TV. and Nintendo 64. My husband and I enjoyed the privacy of the large king bed bedroom with gramma on the sofa bed. Each room had it's own TV. We never felt too crowded. There is only one bathroom but we didn't mind. There was a microwave and minifridge which came in handy.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

We were at two price changes averaging. $130.00

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

The free breakfast buffet was a huge bonus. There was a lot of things to choose from eggs to pancakes, oatmeal, fruit. There as a cereal bar and toast section. Also all kinds of juices and milks, teas and coffees. We had the all you can eat seafood buffet one night it was excellent. The kids ate free and they had special foods for them (chicken nuggets, hotdogs, burgers etc.) if they weren't in to all the fancy stuff. The Pizza Hut and A@W counters were handy, but very slow service. The children ate free there too until 5:00.

Pool Description/Comments:

We were really happy with the pool area. Being that it was zero depth it was great for our 5 year old to play in the water park attached to the pool. It is a big hotel with a lot of people but we never felt crowded at the pool and could always find a pool chair. There was an abundance of pool towels all around which was nice. There is a pool bar with adult and children drinks food and snacks. There are two hot tubs one is much hotter than the other so that the children could use them. It was nice that the pool was open until midnight then the children could swim after the parks without rushing home. Our children loved playing at the pool and did join in some of the activities they had for the kids e.g.: swim races and won tokens for the arcade room which is in the hotel. There is a mini golf and table tennis in the pool area along with a kiddie pool with a "large" climbing center.

Other Comments:

I would recommend this hotel to anyone with children. Our children are 5, 6, and 9 and it was perfect for them. We would definitely go back again. The staff was great on accommodating everything we asked and even checked the shark situation for us in Cocoa Beach by calling their hotel there. There are two laundry rooms in our section of hotel and we did use them. There were plenty of washer and dryers and they were really handy near the pool. I could not find out anything wrong with our stay and flew 12 hours to get there and was so happy with our choice. It really felt like a home away from home but with all the perks.
