We Would return!
I would like to start my review by saying that we enjoyed our time at Royal MAnsions and would return. Having said that there were several things that we were not thrilled about, but I will start at the beginning.
we arrived a bit early (around 1:30 PM) the unit had been cleaned and was ready for us. The directions that Jacqline gave us were easy to follow and we were into the unit with no problems. We were able to park right below the stairs that go up to the unit. The Royal Mansions buildings were very grimey...hallways, stairs and doors outside the unit were cetainly not desirable so I was a little worried openeing the door, but was pleasently surprised when I did! The unit itself was clean and looked exactly the way it did in the pictures. We dropped our stuff and headed to the beach, which was only steps away and was it was beautiful!!! The first problem that arised was that the phone did not work! We went to the front dest to ask how to use the phone thinking that we were doing something wrong...but nope...just didn't work! We spent a forture on our cell phone bills calling restaurants and making plans with our friends that were staying in another unit at Royal Mansions ect.
There were lots of Beach things in the closet for our use, unfortunately they were almost all broken.. Pails and toys were all cracked and boogie boards broken and there were only two beach towels, which simply wasn't enough. The batteries in the TV remote were dead, had to go get new ones and there was a BIG RIP in the sheets on the bed, the bed was ok, but very Squeeky! The bed in the pull out couch was terrible, so my four year old just slept on the couch as it is...which was fine! The pool and hot tub area was good, we used it a couple of times, but spent the majority of our time on the beach. On The beach you could easily walk up to Jetty Park, where there is a big playground and a pier where you can see Dolphins, turtles and cruise Ships, boats ect. We even saw Two Navy Submarines...Very cool! There were so many great restaurants to choose from in the area, its hard to know where to start...some sort of guide or book of tips ect. for restaurants, shops and things to do would have been very helpful! A guest book where all guests can put some ideas in wold be a great idea! The Cocoa Beach Pier was definately over rated..not too exciting, but still worth checking it out! Ron Jons is amazing could have spent days there, the dinosaur store was pretty cool too! OUT OF ROOM
