Caribbean Dreams at Cocoa Beach

Overview

Quote:
Orlando and Disney are just one hour away. Cocoa Beach Pier is a famous spot and great for people-watching. The historic Cocoa Village is nearby and a place to shop and browse for the day. Cape Canaveral is just minutes away, with tours, and you can also drive down and watch the cruise ships

Quick Tips:

We went to a travel bureau and picked up some local brochures and maps. The resort lobby has lots of info on the area.

Best Way To Get Around:

We walked to breakfast just across the road from the resort at Denny's and walked up to the Lori Wilson Park. This is a nature park that is a really nice place for nature walks. We travelled by car to any attractions

We stayed a week here over Easter in D111. This is a ground-level one-bedroom, two-bath oceanfront unit in one of the two Caribbean Dreams Buildings at Ocean Landings. I had done some research previous to the trade, and when I confirmed, I was pretty sure we were in the best place to be! That's what is nice about member reviews; you can read up on the place, and when you arrive, you have a much better idea what to expect. This resort is not new, but what it lacks in modern amenities, it makes up for in flavour. We were checked in quickly and pleasantly with little fanfare. The lobby also houses the lounge and the Gregory's restaurant with entertainment nightly. We did not use either facility, as...Read More

On one day we walked across the road from Ocean Landings and had a huge breakfast at Denny's. It was very good, and the special we ordered was almost too much food. I think it was only about $8 per plate (coffee is extra).

We went to the visitor/activity center, which is located a little walk away, and the staff was very helpful and informative. I signed up for a free tennis lesson, but the day of the lesson, we had such high winds and rain that the class was cancelled (perhaps next visit). I also went to aqua-cise in one of the two pools two days. This was great fun and a good workout. The instructor is very great. She also has yoga on the beach at 7am on alternate mornings, but I missed it. Classes were mostly great to get to know the other travelers, and I made acquaintances with several people who come there for 4 to 5 weeks each year. We only had one problem with facilities, and it was with our toaste...Read More
