    Hi-has anyone been to this place? We have a 2 bedroom booked and RCI assigned us to a Oceanfront unit.

    I know the view could be nice and my kids will do a little boogie boarding, but do you think I would be better requesting being moved to a poolside room?? The walk is far and not too sure about these trams?

    I've never been there, know nothing about the resort. But personally I would take an oceanfront over a poolside any time.

    I’ve stayed there twice in Oceanfront and love it Trams are frequent which is helpful if you are carrying lots of stuff or it’s raining. Great resort - not many resorts have a lazy river AND beach to choose from. The Oceanftont units are peaceful and I imagine it would be noisier around the pool. Tons of things to do at resort with indoor playscape, movie theater, entertainers, activities. We enjoyed visits to the Brevard Zoo and Kennedy Space Center (my daughter even got to talk to an astronaut).

    +1 for a visit to Kennedy Space Center. I've been a couple of times and it is fascinating.

    We have stayed here when it was still the Ron Jon. Personally, I would prefer a room in the pool building (my kids definitely would prefer it). The walk isn't horrible but it is a little ways. When we were staying there (things might have changed quite a bit) the tram ran fairly often but I hate waiting so we walked. Still, most of the activities/amenities are in the main building and the beach building seemed very quite/a bit remote (at least my kids thought so). However, if you are planning on spending most of your time at the beach you might feel different. It probably is also quieter and I presume you can get a great view. So it depends on what you value more: proximity to beach/quiet or being close to pool/activities/amenities.

    We loved our stay there - I think you will enjoy it no matter which building you are in.

    We stayed here just after they converted to HIVC. The place was nice. We had to take the tram to the beach, since we were staying in the pool area. There is lots of stuff for kids here. And you can walk out of the resort and there are shops and restaurants nearby. If you are going to the Space center, it’s a good location. The units are nice, we own at Orange Lake and the 2 bedroom is the same style at this resort.
    Have fun!

    We spend every Spring break at HICV CC with our grandkids. For us, the poolside rooms are ideal. Being near all the amenities is worth giving up the view. We just hop on the tram to get to the beach.
    Should you decide to keep the ocean front be sure to ask for an upper floor or your view may be blocked by trees!
    Don’t miss a visit to the local restaurants - Grills and Fish Lips are our faves.

    Many times with RCI units, what you book is what you get.

    And the biggest reason: rocket launches! The most recent launch was the Falcon Heavy, then as the rocket boosters returned, there was a couple loud Sonic Booms as they landed.
