Coco Key Hotel & Water Park

International Drive, Orlando

The hotel

Not only does CoCo Key offer great family rooms with plenty of space in the heart of Orlando, it boasts it's own water park too — one of the best in the area! With 14 slides, three heated pools and a state-of-the-art gaming arcade, kids of all ages can play to their hearts content all day, every day. You're also just a hop and a skip away from a myriad of Orlando attractions (including the theme parks), so there's never a dull moment! And although restaurants abound (you can walk to over 50 restaurants and shops), The Tradewinds Restaurant on-site is a great place to dine, feasting on deep south favourites, followed by amazing dessert selections. A daily entertainment program means the kids will be making friends in no time, including movies screened by the pool and interesting activities that are hosted by the hotel staff. Look for the hotel mascot CoCo in the morning and afternoon for photo opportunities.

Let me start off by saying the staff is very nice. If the deal seems too good to be true, it is. The water park is nice but do not stay at the hotel. It was dirty, it stunk of mildew and marijuana. I'll try to put this as gently as I can but the clientele is questionable. I got a refund and choose not to stay there because it is not what I would… Read more
Let me start off by saying the staff is very nice. If the deal seems too good to be true, it is. The water park is nice but do not stay at the hotel. It was dirty, it stunk of mildew and marijuana. I'll try to put this as gently as I can but the clientele is questionable. I got a refund and choose not to stay there because it is not what I would define as family friendly. I chose to drive all the way home instead of stay there. There is simply not enough staff to monitor who is doing what in the dark corners of the grounds. Spare yourself the disappointment and book at a park resort if you can. Read less

From the minute I made reservations through Sade, in the reservations department, I knew that we were going to have a great weekend. She was very attentive and answered all my questions. When we arrived at the Front Desk, we were welcomed by friendly faces. Being in the hotel industry, I know that this is very important and a sign of a well run hotel. Our room was fantastic and overlooked the water park (which my kids loved) and the beds were very comfortable. The waterpark lifeguards were very attentive and kept a watchful eye on all the kids that were playing in the water. My family and I spent 3 hours the first day at the water park and 5 hours the second day and the kids had a blast. They're already wanting to go back!! Thank you Aimee, Claudine and Sade for making this such a memorable weekend. Read less

ROACHES ROACHES ROACHES!!! There was a broken fridge, broken TV, and musty smell. The building is old and outdated. It was a horrible experience. Roaches crawling on phones while charging. Roaches crawling on my kids while they slept. DO NOT DO IT!DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

They are doing some renovation. The beds were comfortable. The only thing I didn't like is they charge a resort fee rather you use the swimming pool or slides, if you have a vehicle they charge $10.00 a day for that and a deposit of $50.00 that you get back.
