We will be visiting this resort for our third time on Dec 2, 2017. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Units are spacious and the balconies overlooking the ocean are great. two beaches from the Cocoa Beach pier. Very nice place. Looking forward to next week.

We had a great stay. The condo was very clean, quiet, accessible to everything we needed. Plenty of activities for the kids, prime location to restaurants and the beach. Pool was perfect for the kids. Staff was very polite and accommodating - we left behind an iPad by mistake, and they called us on the way to the airport. Too late to turn around, but they packaged it with extreme care and we got it via UPS a few days later. Tremendous service. We will be back.

THANKS so much for a memorable weekend and an excellent service providing to our needs and make our families feel very special! Thanks and GOD bless!

Joe & Ileana Arvelo , Sumter, South Carolina

We absolutely love it here!! The staff is very friendly and helpful, always smiling:) The unit was very clean and spacious. I love the fact that every unit has a view of the fantastic beach. I would definitely come back to Discovery Beach again and will recommend it to friends as a great holiday spot!

Wir waren im September 2014 im Discovery Beach Resort in Cocoa Beach und waren restlos begeistert. Super Lage, super Aussicht und sehr schöne Wohnung. Auch das Personal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir haben nur gute Erfahrungen gemacht und kommen wieder.

Best place I've ever stayed! My family and I stayed for a week and we were wowed from the second we walked through the resort doors! From the friendly staff to the amazing rooms this place did not disappoint! We look forward to coming back next year! Very clean, beautiful views, great food...I can go on and on!

I am a retired military veteran, I have done a lot of traveling over the years and visited many resorts. I stayed at the Discovery Beach Resort for the very first time this summer and I was very, very pleased with my accommodations, the restaurant and bar, amenities, activities and most of all the staff. I will most definitely recommend the Discovery Beach Resort every opportunity I get and I look forward to returning next year.

This was our first time staying at this resort and overall it was wonderful. What was a good room could have easily been an excellent room with just a few changes. There needs to be a TV in the guest bedroom. Our elderly mom was disappointed to not have this amenity that has been in every other resort we have stayed throughout the years. There is almost no water pressure in the showers. The shower heads were very old with very little pressure. The balcony only had two chairs. For a two bedroom that would sleep 6-8 people it would make sense to have at least 3 to 4 chairs. And, there is room for them. The on-site restaurant was outstanding. The menu was diverse. The food was surprisingly good and fairly priced and the service for both inside and outside seating was friendly and excellent. The front desk staff was also very friendly and helpful. Maintenance responded quickly to a couple of minor requests and were very courteous. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay.

We have been coming to this resort for many years, having been introduced to it by our parents. We feel like part of a family. They remember us year to year. The rooms all face the ocean. The entire staff are marvelous and friendly. The beach and pool are terrific too. Now there is an excellent restaurant on site. We will continue to visit for many years!

Carl and Ann Dean , Carmel, IN

Very much enjoy the room, the service and especially the location and ocean view. Do like the loud music with sound speakers everywhere around the pool for over 12 hrs each day. Some quiet time poolside would be lovely.

Galloway , Michigan

We have been using our weeks here since 2010 and we just LOVE it here. In fact, I wished I LIVED here. If this resort ever decides to sell these apartments as condominiums, I hope that I'm one of the first people they tell.

Our group of 5 stayed at Discovery Beach resort for just 2 days after a convention in Orlando. We will be back! The beach is so close to the room we could hear the waves every night. Staff was very helpful, the food was terrific. I have always gone to Cape Cod, but DBR is calling me. Might have to switch.


Great resort, Sandy the manager is doing a great job with all the upgrades and a super staff.. always clean and well kept environment, the resort is awesome as well as the views from the oceanfront suites.

T Milburn , florida

Spent July 4th week at Discovery Beach- This time we were a group of 14. Everyone had a wonderful time- Units are great, and all members of the staff are so friendly and efficient. Always a pleasure!


I have been going to DBR for three years and this year will be there again. We enjoy it very much. Some suggestions: wooden lounges on the beach for guest, two per room with rm # on them. Activities @pool not so loud as nap time after lunch. Maybe even rent lounges and umbrellas for the week but have employee take out and set up for handicap guest on the beach. Thanks.

E. Lee , Wellington, Fl

My wife & i recently visited your hotel & loved it !!! loved the room, loved the location, loved the area. Thanks for looking after us & hope to visit again soon.. Chris Hall

We spent our 30th anniversary there with some friends. The accommodations were really nice and the staff was exceptional. It's a GREAT place to stay. There are nice amenities and everything is kept up nicely. We WILL be back!!

Jim & Toby Smith , Apopka, FL

I just wanted to say that I had the most wonderful stay at your hotel, I came into Cocoa Beach to see my pregnant niece just to find that my room that I booked at another hotel was double booked! I was upset as I was on a plane for 6 hours and a 40 minute drive from the airport and I was alone on this trip. However your wonderful staff gave me an entire suite with the most gorgeous room and view! I was amazed at how nice everyone was and appreciated the fact that I was treated with respect! Your restaurant was excellent as well, friendly staff and great service! bar maids were wonderful as well! Took flowers to Brenda at the front Desk because she is the one who gave me a great deal and a great experience! Thank you to everyone!

Patrica Page , Canandaigua NY

My parents and I got to spend a week at Discovery Beach Resort. It was an awesome experience! There was a lot to do and see. We enjoyed every second of it! We look forward to coming again next year! Thank you, Discovery Beach Resort! We made memories we will never forget!

Shane Vuillier , Asheville, NC

Living here in Orlando, all most all of my company wants to go to Disney. But three weeks ago my cousins were here visiting and they wanted the Beach. Yeah! Well my neighbor told me about this place and what a PLEASANT surprise. Everything has already been said in the many reviews I read. You WONT'T REGRET staying at this resort and YES it is a resort. We are already planning our next trip there, however my husband and I will be visiting sooner. Thanks again to a terrific staff. The caliber of personnel is well above board See ya soon Don and Terrie

Terrie Herman , Orlando, Florida

Many thanks to the staff and housekeeping for making my stay comfortable and enjoyable! We were there during the storm October 8th thru Oct. 10th. Thought I'd share a lovely photo of the beach from the balcony!

Donna Hanko , Edgewater, MD

DBR is exactly what I needed. A great view of the Ocean with all the amenities of a 5 star hotel! The staff was wonderful and the room was terrific. This is a wonderful place to retreat for a vcation! I look forward to seeing you all again this OCT.

Donna Hanko , Edgewater. MD

This was our third vacation at Discovery Beach Resort, and all of our family (grandchildren too), LOVE it. The easy-access from Orlando airport & its proximity of theme parks is a real plus. The whole staff here is always very efficient & friendly. This resort is beautifully maintained, with utmost attention to detail & cleanliness. It's so nice to SEE THE SAME EMPLOYEES HERE every time we visit. Like the TV show "Cheers" theme song states: It's "Nice to go where everybody knows your name"...and "we're glad we came"... Having a good restaurant on-site is wonderful. Good food & drinks, then just take the elevator back to your condo. Please keep up the great job, Discovery Beach. We definitely "will be back!"

The R's & Family ;) , Peachtree City, GA

We are owners and have been coming to Discovery Beach for a very long time. Returning here year after year is like coming home and visiting family.We like the location, we love the ocean fronts and we always feel welcome. It is the staff that we appreciate for they makes the welcome sincere from the front desk to housekeeping. But more than ocean front and a great location to us Discovery Beach is Elizabeth, her smile,her personality, and her warm welcome will continue to draw us back year after year.

Donald Hill , Palmyra, Me

Nice and friendly too!Weather in the 80'S White sandy beach outside the door PERFECT !!!!!

First Timers , New Brunswick CA

WOW! This place is a great hotel. I espically like that you can see port canaveral from the 8th floor

Someone , MA

My stay at discovery was amazing, the extremely friendly staff made the resort shine like a jewel in the dark. The view was breath taking and was like gazing upon the beach for the time. I promise that my family and I will be returning to Discovery here soon. Like to thank y'all for making our christmas to be the most perfect christmas ever.

daniel , rock hill, south carolina

What a great place to stay and the location,Oh MY! We loved the rooms, staff and the VIEW! Within walking distance of a grocery store, shoppes and restaurants.One being at the resort. The pool was nice and the hot tub were nice. Only a SHORT walk to the beach. The only thing i can say could use improving on is the furniture, could be more comfy. but then again, but then again you don't go to the beach to sit inside!I would also recommend putting something on the bottom of the chairs to cut down on the noise when moving them. the bedrooms were spacious and clean,as were the bathrooms. It was quiet and relaxing when we were there,just what we wanted and needed. The activities director Maureen was very nice and helpful. As was Veronica and Soliea( sorry for the spelling!) It was nice just being an Hr from Disney and other parks as well as the Space Center. But most of all it was an inviting,relaxing place to stay. Would go back tomorrow!

Tina , Allison Park

My husband and I (&2 grandchildren)stayed with you on July 5th,2011.I just wanted to let you know that even though we didn't have reservations,you made us feel welcome and we appreciate that.The resort was beautiful and the staff was excellent,we couldn't have dreamed of a better place to stumble upon.Thank you so much!!! Mrs.Jerry Griffith & family

Lisa Griffith

The rooms are spacious no doubt. Pricing is not bad either! It is right on the beach and next to a pier. Swimming pool and hot tub! Game room is in the hotel also. And I cannot forget to mention my 2 favorites of this place...the cafe downstairs near the lobby which is right off the pool area where the adults can purchase drinks also. The food is amazing there! 2nd favorite thing is the balcony....its huge so much room up here I could fit 8 ppl on here and still run around. Stayed July 2011


My husband and I,our 2 granchildren,stayed at the Discovery Beach Resort in July,it was beautiful.The rooms,staff,atmosphere,everything were perfect.I would definitely go there again. A++++

Lisa Griffith , Talbott,TN.

Once again, we stayed at our "home away from home". Discovery Beach Resort is the only place I've ever stayed when vacationing in Florida and as I would never think of staying anywhere else. From the staff to the accommodations, every aspect of our vacation was wonderful. Thank you once again! Marianne Schafer Ries and Family

Marianne Schafer Ries , Indianapolis, IN

I absolutely loved this resort. I couldn't of asked for anything more. The staff was amazing! I feel as though I have made some really good new friends. I will be thinking about them as well as my awesome vacation we had. Thank you all for making this such a wonderful experience for my family. :) I would recommend this resort for everyone.

Pam Buechner , Pataskala, OH

For all to know, Our family vacationed at the Discovery Beach Resort (DBR) in Cocoa Beach, Florida in April of 2011 for the second year in a row. Our first experience was in April of 2010. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we decided to try for an exchange again for a stay at DBR. Lucky us! From the moment we entered the property we were greeted by friendly staff, from the grounds personnel, maintenance and activities director. The folks at the front desk could not be more pleasant and the check-in streamline. It was comforting to see the same folks as the year prior, like we never left. Throughout the day the DBR staff would greet us (and our children) with a ‘Hello’, ‘Enjoying your stay?’, ‘Is there anything we can do for you?’ or ‘Are you finding everything okay?’. In my children’s lingo, ‘OMG’ this place is the greatest. My wife and I could not agree with them more. The resort and dwelling units are clean, comfortable and well maintained. A wonderful view of the Atlantic Ocean is had by all from the full eastward facing balconies. Direct walking access to the beach over the dune boardwalk is soooooo convenient. We enjoyed our sunrise and evening walks along the beach, very therapeutic. The surrounding town and county is easily learned and there is to much to see and do in a single week. We look forward to future stays with our new acquaintances whom we would not mind calling friends at DBR. Our warmest regards to all of them.

What a great place to stay when in Cocoa Beach! The rooms, the view, the beach, the staff...all top shelf. We'll go back, anytime!

Dave Regis Family , Amesbury,MA

What a beautiful view of the ocean! We liked that our balcony was not right on the beach. The space between the ocean beach and the balconies made it more private. Very friendly staff. Resturant food was great. Can't wait to go back and bring the grandkids.

Brian & Patricia Golden , Kalkaska MI

My wife and I were in Coca Beach at the end of January 2011 and were catching a Cruise out of Cape Canaveral. We had originally booked a room at a chain hotel further south in Satellite Beach and were not really happy. Next day we set out to search for better accomodations for when we returned after the cruise. That's when we stumbled accross the Discovery Beach Resort. We asked about rental possibilities and availability and got to see one of the suites. WOW! We immediately knew that's where we wanted to stay! The ladies at the front desk were so helpful and easy to deal with, we decided to cancel our other room further south and move in that night. Even though the other hotel would not refund the last two was worth it. We will definitely stay there again and will recommend it to our friends and family. This hotel is situated perfectly to be able to enjoy everything in the area by car or walking. You can watch the cruise ships coming and going from your balcony and see them in port from the upper floor hallway.Sorry we didn't get a chance to try the cafe/bar, but heard good reviews. This is a place we will go back to. The price, comfort and location was the best we found in the area.

Peter Bartle , Brantford Ontario

Great stay. Dec 4-10. Weather on the cool side but when it did warm up the pool, hot tub and beach were ideal. Plenty to do with stores and restaurants nearby. Kennedy Space Center about 25 minutes away was well worth a day. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Great view and sounds of the ocean from your balcony. Great meal and service at Izzys. Maureen at the activities desk will take good care of you. I give the whole place a 10.

Tom V , Chatham, NY

This was our 5th year in a row that we have stayed at Discovery for 2 weeks. It was like coming home to friends.All the employees are just great and I mean all of them from top to bottom. They are the nicest poeople we have ever met. The quest are alway pretty nice there to. The condo's are really nice with the beautiful view of the ocean. It's quiet and there is a lot of good places to eat close by including the resturant in the building. There is lot of nice things to do in the area. Carolyn & I would like to think the staff for another great vacation at Discovery Beach Resorts. I would like to name names but I would surely miss someone and they are all great.See you all next year

Fred Coleman , Dayton, Oh

My sister treated me to a week with her at this time share and it was the best time we have ever had together. The staff was wonderful and the room was terrific. I would buy a time share there if I could afford it and be back every year even if if I had to come alone. My sister's husband died the week after we were there and I will always treasure the time we spent there before this happened.

Pat Zierke , Nevada

I want to say how we enjoyed our visit at Discovery Beach Resort from Oct 23rd to Oct 29. We found our stay at the resort to be a very personal experience. As a timeshare owner in another resort in Kissimee we found the employees at Discovery Beach Resort to be more pleasing and willing to answer questions. The only thing I would like to say is that we thought that having a two bedroom that there should have been another telvision in the second bedroom. This is a good thing if timeshare owners transfer to this resort when bringing children or other adults. On a scale from 1 to 10. We would rate this resort as 10. and we We would stay there again, the employees and other guests were so freindly.

Fran Bulaga , Haskell, NJ

We had a great time!! The staff was wonderful and helpful.My famliy came and visited while we were there and it was no problem :)My children loved the pool activities and had a great time in the game room.We will defanitly come back!! thank you so much!!

sativa petrusek , cleveland tn

This was out third year coming here and again it was great! I loved that some of the rooms had been redone with new floors and bedding. We bought a timeshare here last year and this year was out first time actually using it. I cannot wait until we come back next year, the only difference is it will be our honeymoon and I am hoping to get a room on the eighth floor, although any floor from the fourth up has amazing views! The staff was very nice and helpful. I would recommend this resort to everyone! You will not find a place any where near their quality for the price! We hope to be able to own more than one week here eventually because we love this resort so much! Plus, you can't beat a view like that!

Suzanne Irvin , Harrison Township, MI

What a beautiful property. Everything is clean, the people are friendly, and waking up to the sunrise is stunning. Thank you! Kevin & Val Robson

This hotel was AMAZING!!! I stayed there with my family April of 2009 and had sooo much fun!!! Also the Activity director for the kids was awesome!!

caitlyn swager

I have so much fun going to Cocoa Beach. Staying at Discovery Beach is great because you are walking distance to everything. You can walk to the Pier, breakfast or go groceries and make it in your room. The suites are very clean. Everyone is very nice. My only complaint (and its not much of one is the music by the pool. I'd like more vacation music and not love song/breakup music but Marine by the pool with activites was very fun. The restaurant downstairs Discovery Beach Bar & Grille (used to be called Dino's) or I call it Frank's Restaurant is absolutely fantastic. The people down there are so friendly. You can buy lunch and dinner down there (meaning on the first floor) and they also have a deli there. The dinners are amazing. My husband and I with 2 children ate dinner every night there. The filet mignon is amazing. Tasted the best! Melted like butter in my mouth and it wasn't expensive either....very reasonable. I would recommend this place very much.

Linda O , Shelton, CT

To Everyone at Discovery Beach: Thank you, thank you. Our stay with you was wonderfully worry-free and relaxing. It is evident that everyone on the payroll takes a personal pride in what they do for such an incredible facility. I'd never think of going anywhere else! The cleanliness, the friendliness, the newly updated interior....marvelously fantastic!!! See you again, Marianne

Marianne Schafer Ries , Indianapolis, IN

We stayed at DBR this past May 2010.This was my 5yr old daughters and mine First vacation and trip to the ocean. This was the perfect place for that. Everyone was super friendly, especially Patty at the frony desk, she made my vacation the best!!!! Our room was on the 5th floor which was womderful, the condo it self was a little outdated but who really spends their whole vacation in their room anyway!! The condo had everything you need please a view to die for!! It was everything and more....We have now deceided to come here every year due to the staff,room, view and excellent location!! We loved it & you WONT be disappointedmif u stay either!

Mandy Hard , Barnhart,mo

We were lucky enough to spend our 15th anniveresary with the great staff at DBR and can assure you that we will be back. I bought the timeshare as a gift for my daughter and we got to use it the first time it came around. We consider the time we spent here to be among some of the most treasured we have had. Thanks to everyone at the resort and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

philip & Jennifer Brown , Newnan, Ga

We stayed at Discovery Beach Resort in October 2009. It was our second stay at DBR. We love everything about the resort, especially the friendly employees. Our favorite was Maureen the Activities Director. She was great with every single person around the pool area. She makes the kids all feel important by remembering their names and played pool games to suit each of their interests. The adults all loved her too. We all waited around the pool for her so we could play bingo and other games. She has such a great personality and does such a wonderful job that she can't possibly get paid enough for what she brings to the Discovery Beach Resort. We LOVE the poolside lounge chairs. It's hard to make it to the beach, once you lay on one of them. We'll be back again this year and cannot wait. The front desk girls were all very helpful too. Karen, Marty, Adam and Andrew Matthews Warren, Oh.

Marty + Karen Matthews , Warren, Oh

Our week at Discovery Beach Resort was great. Beautiful sunrises from the balcony with my morning coffee, spacious units with full kitchen, close proximity to terrific seafood and activities scheduled by their Director of Recreation, Maureen, made the week memorable. Location was easy to access from Orlando Airport. Overall a wonderful location for the rest & relaxation we had planned. Marilyn

Marilyn Durden , Fayetteville, GA

We recently stayed at the Discovery Beach Resort for a week with our RCI Timeshare. This was our second year in Cocoa Beach; several years ago we stayed at the Ron Jon Surf Club. The layout and square footage of the rooms is almost the same if not identical. Clearly, not only being within immediate proximity of the beach, but overlooking the beach is a major advantage over the Ron Jon Surf Club. On the other side of the coin, their hotel amenities, particularly the pool area and indoor playground are particularly noteworthy. The bar / reastuarant areas are largely comparable in terms of the quality of the food. That being said, there is one quality in particular which Discovery Beach Resort offers that Ron Jon Surf Club does not... and at the end of the day, it is a critical differentiator that guarantees our return visit to Discovery Beach Resort. At Ron Jon Surf Club, our children were required to wear wrist bands where-ever they traveled on the property. At Discovery Beach Resort, members of the staff both knew and remembered my daughters' names. In particular, Maureen who leads the Guest Services / Activities desk did a sensational job insuring my kids (Marlie, Casey and Dylan) were having a great time. She greeted them by name each morning, got them excited about the day's activities and, even switched from shooting hoops (which they were still too young to do) to conducting an age appropriate Trivia Contest mid-activity, as part of her efforts to make sure they were always having fun! Similar savvy was readily apparent at all of the pool activities... my kids were engaged, excited and eagerly participated in all of the games she conducted... her patience, generosity and flexibility in allowing the kids to choose their "awards" was just awesome. At the end of the day, its people like Maureen, who are committed to insuring my family's vacation is wonderful, that will insure our future patronage.

We recently bought a timeshare at this resort, and this was our first visit - we stayed a week. The resort exceeded our expectations. It was clean and well maintained throughout, with accessible and helpful staff. Our unit was large and spacious, and was fully equipped. We cooked most of our own meals in the full size kitchen. However, we also enjoyed the onsite restaurant that posted yummy specials each day. We appreciated the convenience of having our own washer & dryer in the unit. All the units have ocean front views and furnished balconies with spectacular views of the beach and surf. The resort has a wonderful Activities Director, Maureen, who was extremely helpful. She had many activities scheduled for those who were interested (we went on the beach walk, to the onsite wildlife show and to the space shuttle program briefing). We enjoyed the pool area and hot tub -- including pool activities (water aerobics, poolside bingo, and live entertainment). It is a short walk to the beach on a private resort path. We often took beach walks, including a walk to the nearby Cocoa Beach Pier. We also enjoyed the resort's movie room - which was contantly showing recent releases (we brought our own popcorn from our unit). The resort has an exercise room which also includes computers and printers - we also had internet access in our unit. The resort's location was great for us - there is plenty to do in and around Cocoa Beach.

I just want to say that my husband and I had the TIME OF OUR LIVES! when we were there in March... We were on our "Anna-Birthday"... You see, My birthday, as well as my husband's are the same...AND, we GOT MARRIED on that day, hence, the 'Anna-Birthday' thing... But, I must say that Maureen Blanchette MADE our trip... She was the BEST!!! Funny, intelligent, and very helpfull! I hope her Supervisors see this... That Girl NEEDS a commendation! Or at least a raise!:)

Valerie , Spartanburg, S.C.

I wanted to take a moment to write and tell you how wonderful our stay with you was. We stayed June 17-20 (2009) and were very sad to leave! This was our first time in Cocoa Beach as a family, we found your website and booked on a whim. Let me just say that everything, and I mean EVERYTHING exceeded my expectations. From all staff that we had contact with, to your building, your pool, your roooms, your location... just everything! You all are doing things right and have made us want to come back again and again! We hope to return for a longer stay next June and look forward to seeing you again! Thank You

Ben Charneski , Cincinnati, Ohio

“Great Place - solo or with family/friends” This is the fifth year I have stayed at this resort. Always come with family (usually grandchildren). Each condo faces the ocean with a balcony and just a couple yds away from nice beach. Adult, children and teen friendly. Good surfing area. Pool and hot tub clean and nice. Tennis and basketball courts. Staff helpful and friendly. Neat coastal habitat and turtle nesting. You can see the shuttle launches from your balcony if you happen to come during launch time. Shopping and lots of restaurants close by. Orlando about 45 minutes away. Cape Kennedy a few miles and the space museum. Casino cruises if you are interested.

Tea2 , Canton, Georgia

I loved staying at Discovery Beach Resorts with my sister and family! It was very enjoyable, a quiet and relaxing environment and very many nice employees! Thank you for providing a great hotel on Cocoa Beach!

Alyssa , St Charles, MO

We enjoyed OUR stay at this Resort,4 adults, The convenience ,the location,even a satellite launch which was fantastic and included an educational commentary from the maintenance man ,who was very knowledgeable. However , be cautious when you check out (as you should at any resort ) and have your condo checked by personnel to be cleared of any damage .

Ben Waldrop , Mount Juliet TN

We returned to The Resort on Cocoa Beach again January 3-9, 2009, for our second early January Florida vacation. We had enjoyed our stay in early January 2008 so much that we exchanged for the same week at the same resort again this year. This year we were joined by several family members and close friends, making our group 11 total in two 2-BR units at that resort and one 2-BR unit at Discovery Beach Resort just a mile or two up the beach. We had some difficulties balancing everyone's different interests, idiosyncrasies, and vacation philosophies. No one wanted to be "in charge," either, but they kept acting as if we were supposed to be. Live and learn. Both resorts were very nice. They actually are sister resorts managed by the same timeshare company. The Resort on Cocoa Beach is larger and has more amenities but most of its units are oceanview. Discovery Beach Resort is smaller but all units there are oceanfront. The units at both resorts have been very well maintained and remodeled within the last few years. The most significant thing about both is the very friendly, helpful attitude of the staffs--it reflects extremely well on the resort company that runs both. Once again this year, some of our best experiences were enjoying nature on the Space Coast. The public boat ramps near Freedom 7 Elementary School again opened up the Thousand Islands of the Banana River lagoon where several of us saw hundreds, perhaps thousands, of birds, including the largest great blue herons I've ever seen. We also saw manatees and even a dolphin within just a few feet of the boat ramps. Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge was again terrific, especially the wildlife drive. The Brevard Zoo in Melbourne (especially feeding the lorakeets) was a highlight. I even got in some surf paddling in my inflatable kayak. This year we spent one day helping on a Habitat for Humanity house. Our family has traded charitable contributions in lieu of gifts at Christmas for several years and we decided doing volunteer work together would be a nice alternative. Not everyone agreed with the idea at first, but I think all of us who worked that day really enjoyed it. The local Habitat chapter seems well able to accommodate help from folks outside the local area. We worked on framing walls on the bare slab we found when we got to the site. It was really fantastic to be able to see such progress in one day's work. We got four walls built (with framing for doors and windows) and actually raised two of them. The Habitat worker onsite encouraged us to sign the wall joists after we got one exterior wall raised and write something about our hopes for the occupants--it was quite moving. Three of us took the SunCruz casino cruise one night. Two playing craps were fairly lucky but one playing poker wasn't so lucky. The crew and casino staff were very friendly and we enjoyed ourselves but we didn't expect a glamorous cruise and weren't disappointed. We've reserved a 2-BR oceanfront unit at Discovery Beach Resort for the first week of 2010. We've never returned on an annual basis to any timeshare vacation location and next year will be three in a row for us in Cocoa Beach. That says more than anything else I could write about how much we like it. It's not as far as Ft. Lauderdale/Miami but it is significantly warmer than Jacksonville/St. Augustine that time of year in our experience. I can't stand even the idea of driving on the beach, so it's better for us than the Daytona Beach area, too. My advice remains the same--get away from Orlando and see the real Florida. Enjoy the many wonderful state and local parks and low-key, low-cost options to enjoy yourself.

Dear Maureen, How are you? We arrived home safely this past weekend, and I've been on the go ever since. I remembered that I couldn't send the photos from Discovery Beach because my laptop broke down, thank heavens I have my desktop at home! Here are the pictures I promised; I will send them one at a time because they are large files. Thank you again for your cheerful disposition during our stay at Discovery Beach; it truly was a pleasure. Please feel free to pass on this commendation of your work to your supervisor at Discovery Beach as my personal endorsement of your job! Sincerely, Matthew J Andrew


We stay at the Discovery Beach Resort every year and it remains a great place to stay. You can't find better beach-front in Cocoa Beach. Every room is OCEAN FRONT. They are clean and well-equipped with everything you need. The front desk staff is nice if you are nice. When we were checking in, there was a couple yelling and screaming at the front desk because they didn't get a room called "Nautalis Suites"...with a larger balcony. They were yelling and trying to bully the staff into giving them what they wanted even though those suites were booked. The front desk staff finally had to say "look, we can't give you one. We simply don't have it." Some people just can't be pleased. DSC is close to everything you'd want to do in the area. It's within walking distance of the pier, Ron Jons Surf Shop. And just a couple minute's drive to the cruise terminals, supermarkets, restraunts, etc...It's exactly 1 hour to Disney World and all of the Orlando attractions. This year is the first year we tried surf-fishing. There is a dive/ bait/tackle shop just up the road that was selling complete ocean rods set ups for $30. We bought one and some bait and caught quite a few fish...Drum, Whiting, etc...

Morning, My sister and brother-in-law used my reservation last week (room 418) and since they've been back they can't say enough how enjoyable a time they had at Discovery. I think they like it there as much as we do. See you in March. Thanks,Mike

We purchased a unit in this condo before it was built and has been going every year since! We had the wonderful opportunity to purchase another unit (same one might I add) the following week. So we FINALLY get 2 weeks this year!!! We have never changed our destination! The people are great, the view is the best and we LOVE it! VACATION 2008.......HERE WE COME!

We exchanged our two bedroom condo timeshare week from Pompano Beach for a week at the Discovery Resort. We stayed in a two-bedroom on the sixth floor. We loved the accomodations, especially the oceanfront master room with the king-size bed. It is really nice to lie in bed and watch the waves and listen to the sounds of the ocean. The balcony was hugh and the unit was well maintained and clean. The pool is a nice size and clean as well. The restaurant on the premises wasn't open. We were disappointed in the restaurants there, but that's no reflection on the resort. We had a great italian dinner at Bella's in Melbourne, but weren't impressed with any others that we visited. The personnel at the front desk were friendly and helpful. We hope to go back soon for a few days if they have availability.

This is our 4th year here and we own 2 weeks. We have never been treated badly here. The staff from the top to the bottom has always been very friendly to us from the time we check in to the time we check out. The resort is very clean and well kept. The pool is very nice. They have things for you to do just about very day if you want to do them. The view is the greatest from your room. It is fun just to sit on your balcony and watch the beach. The balcony is very large and the railing is safe for kids.

This place is soooooo awesome! I went here because of a family reunion. And I don't think it would have been as fun if we didn't stay at the Discovery Beach Resort. We are actually going back in a few days. We are all really excited. This place is great for everyone of all ages. It's not that far from Disney World either! There hasn't been one day when we haven't talked about it. There were about 15 of us and I'm sure everyone had a fantastic time. This is the place to be if you like beautiful views, an awesome pool, and time to be with your family.

We’ve been vacationing at Discovery Beach Resort once every few years since 1992 and our experience this past vacation, which was July 26th to August 2nd has been just like all of the others there. Perfect. We always look forward to staying here because we know we are going to have a premier room with a premier view. We know what to expect. The place is always clean, the views from the balcony are always great and the staff is always ready to accommodate any needs we may have. The showers are hot, the air conditioning is cool, all appliances work, you get the picture. Although the restaurant may have limited hours, it doesn’t affect us as we have found some favorites that we visit while staying at Discovery. There are plenty of good ones in the area. The rules don’t bother us and they won’t be a bother to any responsible individual. If you’re planning on being irresponsible and causing problems, then you might not have a good time there as the resort won’t tolerate it. This is a good thing. The Security staff is visible throughout the day and night – another plus for the property. We like the property’s location in Cocoa Beach. The area is still not that crowded, although it is growing. Its proximity to main attractions – one hour to the Orlando area, 30 minutes to Kennedy Space Center make it an ideal location from which to take day trips. If you’re looking for a place where you can spend quality time with your family, all the amenities of home and have a relaxing, as well as a great time, then Discovery Beach Resort is your best bet. Did I mention the views from the Balcony?

My husband & I spent our honeymoon (Oct. 21-27, 2007) at the Discovery Beach Resort. The desk staff was very welcoming and gave us much paper information such as resort activities/events, instructions, and other pertinent paper needed for our stay. We found our two bedroom accommodations wonderful. It was very clean, spacious, & the oceanview was awesome. We would have brought the kids, but it was our honeymoon. Smiles. We cooked all of our meals in the fully-equipped kitchen, went to the pool, visited the beach, & the Kennedy Space Center. Other days we just sat out on the balcony and enjoyed the view and/or read. We even visited the gameroom and played air hockey & pinball. We loved the fact that housekeeping only came once a week. We aren't slobs so we didn't need it, but only to change out towels. And there was an abundant amount of towels, dishes, glasses, utensils, pots/pans, etc. Everything we needed was there except the food, which we bought at Walmart. We would definitely visit again and bring the kids. I felt our experience at the Discovery Beach Resort was relaxing, enjoyable, and helped make our honeymoon a special time. We had great conversations with staff at the activities' desk and Jeannette, who was the housekeeper assigned to our area. Thank you!

We stayed at the resort last weekend and it was awesome. The service was great, everything was clean, and the area spectacular. We would stay there again no doubt about it.

My wife and I stayed with you two years ago, and had a great time. We will be there again 05-10-08 with my family. I told him that your resort was the best. We can not wait to get there this coming Saturday.

We have stayed many times over several years and it just keeps getting better. Everyone from the maintenance and housekeeping departments to everyone at the front desk; so friendly and helpful. We had three adult children and most of our grandchildren with us for spring break. From Teenagers to two year olds they really enjoyed the animals, bingo, trivia, swimming pool and of course the ocean and beach. The Older children enjoyed pick up basketball every night. It was so easy to drive to Disney, Dodger town, and Kennedy Space Center. We definitely plan to return to Discovery. We had a great family reunion.

Compliments on the pool area: Always clean with whirlpool and pool at just the right temperature, especially on a cool night, just right. Best we have ever stayed at! Also the staff is extremely helpful and eager to please guests.

Katie & Dolores were fabulous at the desk and handled everyday with a smile. Everyone was outstanding!

Thank you for the fine dining and the friendly atmosphere, it was greatly appreciated by the group, the Warsteiner and the Kirshe wasser wasn't bad either. Hopefully I will be returning to Cocoa beach in the near future. Once again thank you. Mark

Checking in and out was fast and friendly. The rooms and facilities are clean and well maintained. Everyone we met was helpful to a fault. An excellent beach vacation. Thank you so very much.
