Timeshare owner A review of Coconut Palms Beach Resort 2
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.
