Will be in Cocoa Beach in July. What is the nicest oceanfront hotel to stay at while there? Will have our 15 year old son with us and would like to have a really nice pool. Thanks in advance for any replies.

I would use the reviews on tripAdvisor to guide my decision.
I know they have a Hilton and a Four Points Sheraton, but I am not sure about any thing nice that is not a chain.

Have a look at Oceans Landing Resort, it's about 1 mile south of Ron Jons Surfshop. We had a timeshare there untill 2002. The pools aren't beachfront however.

We actually just got back from staying at the Double Tree Oceanfront. We booked a 2 room king suite with a pullout couch. The room was spacious, however, very much in disrepair. We stayed in it one night and the next morning called the manager to come up and take a look. One of the sliding doors would hardly open. The cover for the air conditioner/compressor was falling off so that when you were on the deck, it was hanging there in your way. The other sliding door onto the balcony would not close completely and allowed hot air into the room all night long. The air conditioning unit in the bedroom did not work. We could not get the room cooled below about 76 - 78 degrees overnight even though the unit ran non-stop. The bathroom was absolutely nasty. The furniture was all nicked up and the carpet was dirty. We don't usually complain about rooms, but when you are paying $260 per night, you certainly expect a clean room with doors that open and close properly and an air conditioner that worked.

They did move us into another room where things worked properly and it was much nicer and even gave us a price break for our inconvenience.

The food in the dining room was very good and the hotel staff was very nice. The only other thing that we didn't like was the pool. It was absolutely filthy the entire time we were there. You expect sand in a hotel pool that was oceanfront but it was unbelievable the number of dead floating bugs in the pool. We didn't see anyone cleaning the pool even though we stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. Skimming off floating bugs and debris isn't that hard and doesn't take that much time, but we never saw anyone out there cleaning the pool. I have never been in such a nasty pool in all my life. I got in once and that was it. It was just too dirty.

All in all, we were not happy with the place. It certainly does not live up to the Hilton name. We have stayed in many Hiltons, Hamptons, Double Trees over the year (all in the Hilton family.) This was by far the most unkept hotel we have ever stayed in. When we go back to Cocoa Beach (and we will as we have family there) we will NOT stay at this hotel again. A real shame. With some basic maintenance, this could be a nice place.

Thanks to all for your replies.
