Near by beach resort for the second half of our week???


Flying into Orlando with 2 kids (age 5 and 2) in October. We are going to stay in Orlando and do Disney for the first 4 nights. We want to head to the beach for the last three nights or our trip. We will be flying back home out of Orlando. Can anyone recommend a beach front family resort for our 3 night stay. Probably leaning toward Cocoa Beach or Daytona area because of proximity to Orlando, but I would considered the Gulf side if someone has a good resort in mind. Must be on the beach and I don't really want to spend much over 200.00/night. Thanks!

October is a good time to visit, as the crowds will be low and the weather nice.

If you go to Cocoa Beach / Cape Canaveral, you will be about 45 minutes from Orlando airport and have your choice of a number of resorts right on the beach that are within your budget. I'm not sure of the rates for your exact dates, but the Ron Jon Cape Caribe Resort specializes in families with younger children, and has one of the better pool areas in Central Florida (sprays, slides, lazy rivers) and plenty of activities. See www.ronjonresort.com .

Also check out:

Discovery Beach Resort (beach condo by the day)

Resort on Cocoa Beach (beach condo by the day)

Hilton Cocoa Beach (right on beach, but no balconies)

Doubletree (about 100' off beach)

La Quinta Oceanfront (on the beach at the pier)

Hampton Inn (about 100' off beach)

Best Western (some rooms in "tower" building directly overlook beach at the pier)

International Palms Resort (large resort that is being renovated)

If you want an ocean view, be sure to specify, because many of these places have some rooms that overlook parking lots, etc.

See www.visitcocoabeach.com for general information. Good luck in finding the perfect place, and have a great time!
