Historical Traveler Reviews Coconut Palms Beach Resort 2 New Smyrna Beach
Went there for 3 nights on a time share package starting June 19th 2004. The beach was nice and not crowded. The resort is right on the beach and we did have a room with a balcony that faced the beach and was pretty nice. The problem I had with this trip was that the room we had had air conditioning problems. There were also other rooms that apparently had problems because we saw the A\C people there when we arrived. To make a long story short we stayed there for 3 nights without the A\C ever getting fixed. During the day the room stayed no cooler than 76 degrees.
They sent somebody over twice, both times we were not there and he said it was O.K.!!! I would definitely not go back to the Coconut Palms.
my father and i had a great time, i bought a timeshare and cant wai t to go back.
we were there in june 2004.
My family and I stayed at Coconut Palms Resort in July of 2003. From day one we had bad luck. The first night our AC went out and we could not get anyone over to fix it before late the following afternoon. Keep in mind, this was July in Florida. IT WAS HOT!! The second night the dishwasher messed up. The third night all the smoke alarms started going off in the wee hours of the morning. Everyone had to stand outside for over an hour to be certain it was a false alarm. On Wed. morning of what was supposed to be our family vacation we wake to find my 17 year old brother dead. Needless to say, I don't expect that I will ever be able to return to New Smyrna or atleast for awhile. Of course with all that went wrong with us I would rate it as I did. This does not mean that others could not have an enjoyable stay. From day one we were not impressed with the facility at all.
Great Accommodations and Beautiful View
We were very pleasantly surprised with our accommodations at the Coconut Palms Beach Resort. We stayed in what was called the "bungalows". It was very private and quiet. The beach was only steps from our door. There was a heated pool and an unheated pool. The resort provided entertainment and games. We had a "Taste of Italy" night and a "Picnic Lunch" day with food, drinks, etc... free of charge. Since this is a timeshare, we were asked to signup for a meeting, but when we declined, they were not pushy. We had a great stay and plan to return in the future.
COCONUT PALMS.......LOVE IT
I love this place ! The kitchen was a plus totally stocked with cooking items. The room made you feel like you were staying on a island. The view was wonderful and you can drive right on the beach and I liked that. No real high raises here and great stores for the tourist.
Daytona is a stone throw away. They have daily activity for young or old. What more could you ask for. I didnt want to leave there and I will always want to go back again.Best time I ever had. Have a great memory forever...........Trish
Quiet get away
we visited there in Jan of this year. we were disappointed with the accomodations. The,mattress was so soft, our backs hurt each morning.
And, we were surprised to find no phones in the rooms. Good thing we took our cell phone! We did enjoy the view from our patio. We had a beautiful view of the atlantic ocean. If you want a good restful place to visit without a worry about staying in touch with the rest of the world. Then, this is a good place for you to vacation.
We own 2 weeks at Coconut Palms and have gone there in June each of the last 6 years. CP is actually a complex of several condos stretched up and down the beach, pretty much within walking distance of each other. Generally we have been happy with it. Our kids are 5 and 9 - just the right age to enjoy a beach and pool all day. We could do that for 2 weeks and not even spend any extra money. However, we have done the Disney World thing (1 1/2 hrs - a day trip), Kennedy Space Center (1 hr south), St Augustine (1 1/2 hrs north), and Daytona (30 minutes north). There is also the Central Florida Zoo and Blue Springs to visit. We think this location is ideally placed whether you want to just enjoy a quiet beach, or if you want to do the tourist thing in central Florida. New Smyrna is a quiet family town much more laid back than Daytona. TERRIFIC BEACH, local dining and grocery store within walking distance. The Flagler Beach Street Festival is held every June just 3 blocks away. As for Coconut Palms, the landscaping really used to be more lush and tropical. However, the service has improved and they have more activities. (The pool at the main office building is always cold!) I highly recommend this place. For the same money as a hotel room you can have really nice accomodations.
VERY DISAPPOINTED THAT THIS RESORT WAS RATED A 4 STAR!!!!!!!!!!
When we arrived on Sunday APRIL the 13, the pool was freezing. MONDAY when the pool was still freezing and I, don't mean cold I mean freezing I contacted the main office to ask if we could use one of the other pools and I explained why. I was told that the resort didn't allow pool sharing. Then after a week of my kids only being able to swim for just a couple of hours in the middle of the day and coming out with their lips purple, the lady checking the water on SATURDAY morning told us that the heater to our pool had been broken and we could use one of the other pools!!! BOY it sure would have been nice to have used the other pools the whole week that we were there instead of just one day. WE save for a whole year to take our children on vacation!AND their favorite part is the pool, so you can guess how this years vacation rated!!! SO how is it that it takes a resort rated as high as yours so long to fix a heater to the pool! AND why could you not have toldus the heater was broken and we could use one of the other pools. YOU sure didn't have a problem sending someone around twice that week to stick notices in our doors to tell of your events that you were having or to call us during the week to ask us to come and pick up our welcome package that informed us that if we took a tour of your resort we could get free gifts!!! THANK goodness we do not own at your resort that is listed 4 star resort and I am happy to say that we do own at 4 star resort(limetree in Sarasota) and they do treat their guest as such! SINCERELY, DIANE ROWLAND CANTON, N.C.

Coconut Palms Beach Resort - A Vacation Timeshare
I own three floating weeks at Coconut Palms Beach Resort and I love it. I have been fortunate to have scheduled weeks during a full moon . The night sky in the New Smyrna Beach area is relatively dark, as compared to the Chicago area, and the moon's silvery path across the dark ocean to the horizon with bright stars overhead is a very romantic experience. The broad, hard packed, white sandy beaches are wonderful for strolling, biking, automobile driving, swimming, surfing and sun bathing.
I have also been fortunate to view, from my ocean front balcony, a shuttle launch from Cape Canaveral/Kennedy Space Center 45 miles away. I figure that 15 seconds after lift off, I was as close to the shuttle as it rocketted into space as was the crowd at the Cape. I saw the launch in February, 2001. It was about 6:00pm, the weather was clear and mild, the sun was below the horizon, but it's rays illuminated the rising shuttle with it's long firey tail and brilliant trailing exhaust plume. Without binoculars, I could view the shuttle as it appeared to arch out over the Atlantic ocean and eventually separated from it's boosters which plummetted back into the ocean.
The New Smyrna Beach area is a quite, art community with interesting galleries, antique shops, good food, golf and shopping. It is about 1 1/2 hours from Orlando/Kissimmee (Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, etc.), it is just north of the Cape and it's National Seashore area, it is just south of Daytona Beach (NASCAR Race Week, Bike Week, etc.) and about 1 1/2 hours from St.Augustine. New Symrna Beach is well located for Northeast Florida fun.
