The most important thing you need to know is that this listing is not a private owner. This place is a vacation condo resort. Each condo is owned by different people, but the management oversees the maintenance and cleaning. You check in at the main desk, like a hotel. You can pay extra and get daily maid service if you want. You can trade in your dirty towels for fresh ones from housekeeping.
When you book it through Airbnb, you don't know which condo you will be getting. Because there are different owners, some are in great shape, and some are more dated. In order for the condos to be rented, the owners have to agree to a certain standard, but there is still a wide variation in quality. I discovered all this after I booked. I also discovered after booking that Royal Mansions has its own website, and it would've been cheaper if I booked directly with them, and they give discounts for AAA, AARP, military, etc. Also, you can find more reviews on Tripadvisor and Google Reviews. Some reviews are stellar, and others are horrible; again, due to the different qualities of the apartments. Also, the pictures, are not necessarily your place, they are stock pictures. I really wish I knew all this before booking.
Now for the review:
My family stayed in January, 2015. Our patio condo was facing the pool. Our college daughter slept in the Murphy bed, the teen slept on the couch, and us parents had the bedroom. The apt was a good size, so everyone had enough space. The apt was extremely clean. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, dishes, a few condiments, and coffee. (Bring your own sponge and paper towels.)
The pool was warm and clean, the hot tub was great. People of all ages renting. Not too loud, and not too quiet, and everyone was friendly. Just steps from the beautiful beach. In January, we went boogie boarding, and the water was not too cold. No lifeguard, but you can do a short drive to Cocoa Bech or Jetty Park if you want a lifeguard watching you.
The staff was very helpful with suggestions of where to go eat, where to rent boogie boards, activities, etc. They were always friendly.
Breakfast is complimentary in a little dining area: Cereal, juice, coffee, tea, bagels, danish, oatmeal, waffles (not the Belgian ones).
Cape Canaveral is a quiet and safe town. Cocoa Beach is more commercial and busy, with restaurants, clubs, Publix food market, kayaking, etc. and is just a 5-10 minute drive away.
NOTE: The patio apt has only ONE window, and no screen. I love fresh air, so we kept it open all night, and had no bug problems, but I really expected fresh air and cross breezes. That was the one thing that really annoyed me about the place. I found it stuffy. Lucky for location, location, location. Only steps from the pool and the beach.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a wonderful stay. Would recommend it. It was just as they described.
Check-in & out was quick & easy. Nice quiet part of the beach.
