Great location beach getaway
This unit only sleeps 5, the new sleeper ins pretty hard and only large enough for one. Everything else was pretty good and they have lots of stuff for the beach. Mattress could be better.
Royal Mansions??? Not even close. 3 stars because of location.
Booking process was very smooth, no problems there. On our glorious arrival to the Mansions we discovered that our particular building was under construction. The condo directly across and the the condo to the next to us. Strike one. The door code was incorrect. We attempted the office at the Manions but they gleefully informed me that because it was a private rental, they had no control over anything that happens during our stay. We called our rental contact Marla. Marla was very sweet and accommodating. She let us check in early but after several minutes was able to call us back to tell us that the code we were given was incorrect. Finally, we enter the mansion. We were immediately met with a stair case (not mentioned in the pictures). Barely any room to get our suitcase in and close the door behind us. The entry way was maybe 3x5. The smell when we entered the mansion was repulsive. It smelled like mothballs and cats. Strike 2. It was terrible. We tried airing it out by opening all the windows but the doors didn't have screens on them so it was either let the large Florida bugs in or deal with the smell. We bought candles. Upon further inspection of Marla's mansion, the furniture that was posted in the picture was not as advertised. Outdoor seating were pvc beach chairs. There were random wooden stools for seating in the very tiny main space with 1 recliner and a sub par sofa. The sofa was extremely uncomfortable. Actually, there was not a lot of comfortable anything. The dining set was scary. All glass and not sturdy. The main TV did not work. There were 10 different remotes, none of them operated anything. The bedrooms: First floor. The general main closet were the beach items were kept was in this bedroom. Odd. Next is the bed. The floor was more comfortable than this terrible bed. It was soo low to the ground you would have thought it was a platform bed; it wasn't. You could feel the springs in the mattress as you slept. Strike 3. No dressers for your clothes so we had to use the leaky iron which ruined 2 shirts. The bathroom was severely outdated with a shower head that was as useful as a 1950s outdoor sprinkler. Moving on to the upstairs bedroom. We'll just say ditto but it did have 2 showers. Bonus? Maybe. The carpet in the bedrooms were horrendous. The kitchen was icky. Did not feel comfortable cooking in that.
Mansion or homeless shelter?
But the location was amazing! Pool was nice.
Full transparency! You are welcome.
Good beach getaway
great cocoa location! 20ish min beach walk south to the pier or north to Jetty park. Nice quiet beach. You are staying on what is essentially the 3rd and 4th floors so yes there are stairs but they didn't bother us. Condo could use some updating but it looks like property is in the process of it. Plenty of towels and beach accessories available. Some paper products and cleaning supplies available but I always bring my own just in case. Beds were very comfortable for a rental home. Had some issues with door codes when we first got there but management was quick to fix it.
Would have been the perfect spot to see the rocket launch if it didn't get scrubbed :(
While our location and overall Condo was decent, it was not nearly as nice as Condos we have rented before. We have stayed in Condos for the past 5 years which we rented from VRBO both in Alabama and Florida. We had a difficult time when we arrived accessing our Condo, the key code we were provided was incorrect, when we went to to office at the Condo the lady pretty much said we were on our our own and acted very disinterested in our issue. We contacted the Management Company via cell phone, they were helpful, however we had to call them back several times to get the correct key code number. Once we finally accessed the Condo we were disappointed to find out we had to climb ten steps to get to the front door, ten more steps to get to the main floor of the Condo and another ten steps to get to the second floor Bedroom, there were no elevators what so ever, obviously this required lots of carrying of our things. This unit was under repair inside and out during our stay, in fact the screen door was still in the box. It was overall not as nice as what we have rented in the past, Kitchen had minimal utensils, Living Room furniture was less than comfortable, among other things. Now for the most frustrating part of our stay, the whole Covid-19 Pandemic, which we realize is of no fault of anyone involved with our stay. With that being said we rented the Condo from VRBO / Cocoa Beach Best for two weeks. After staying for one week it was becoming evident that we should be heading home after only one week of staying. We originally contacted VRBO to see what our optins might be, they referred us to Cocoa Beach Best, who we contacted I believe on Tuesday. We asked about a possible refund for the second week our possibly a credit to be used at a later time, to be frank that is when the run around started and the frustration became even worse. They would only communicate with us by Email, no phone contact was possible. After excuse, after excuse, after excuse, we did find something available in the time frame we could use, it was available through Cocoa Beach Best, etc. Only to find out after days of frustrating Emails that they were not willing to refund our money for the second week and not willing to credit us at a later time for another stay in an available Condo in the time frame that would work for us. I would not recommend Cocoa Beach Best to anyone I know to rent from for the reason mentioned previously. Sorry out of space!!!
Would Stay again
A bit outdated, but definitely worth the price we paid. We would entertain the option of staying here again. Very friendly people.
Thank you for the review! We hope to see you back in the future!

Why Reservations Desk - Marla or Colin chose Cape Canaveral
Royal Mansions is located at the northern tip of Cape Canaveral and is a favorite spot for those looking for quiet beach time. The beach is great for cycling or walking and the beachside pool, hot tub and gazebo create a comfortable outdoor living space.
