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.

1. They gave us a room w/2 full beds when we reserved a king w/pull out sofa. Three rooms later we got 2 queens which was fine. 2. The water park is VERY small & the rides are lame for adults. 3.

1. They gave us a room w/2 full beds when we reserved a king w/pull out sofa. Three rooms later we got 2 queens which was fine. 2. The water park is VERY small & the rides are lame for adults. 3. Our keys didn't work 3 times in a row, so we kept having to go back to the front desk. 4. The water park is NOT under a canopy as advertised. There's half of 1 pool that is covered. 5. The arcade is very small & has very few games. 6. Our TV was not a 55' as advertised & had a big black splotch blocking some of the picture & a black line running across the screen. They did swap the TV out very quick & actually gave us the 55' this time. 7. BRING WATER SHOES!!!! THE CEMENT IS SCORCHING HOT & YOU'RE FORCED TO STAND ON IT WAITING IN LINE OR WALKING FROM RIDE TO RIDE. MY FEET HAVE BLISTERS! 8. They do not have ANY washcloths on site at all! Just hand & body towels & they're super thin, even the beach towels. 9. Not their fault, but it further dampened my stay when the pool got closed because security said, "someone pooped in it". 10. The first Hilton Hotel EVER built & it's showing its age. On a positive note, the staff has been very friendly & quick to respond to our complaints. Read less

Pros first... fun slides (2 closed due to covid), good prices, kids enjoyed spending the day here. Hotel staff was helpful and accommodating. The kids enjoyed it and loved the lax of rules. The grounds are well kept. Awesome location! Smoothies were good and they were sweet when my daughter spilled hers. But... I’m hoping we don’t have corona… Read more
Pros first... fun slides (2 closed due to covid), good prices, kids enjoyed spending the day here. Hotel staff was helpful and accommodating. The kids enjoyed it and loved the lax of rules. The grounds are well kept. Awesome location! Smoothies were good and they were sweet when my daughter spilled hers. But... I’m hoping we don’t have corona virus in the next couple of days! I have never in my life seen a pool more full of people...Ever. A child barfed in the pool and nothing was done other than some scooping. Another kid had blood freely running out of their ear in the hot tub. The water park was fun but no social distancing. Understaffed. At the pool at 9am there was a guy smoking weed. There was music from other customers with extremely foul language. I mean no rules is FUN and I’m all for it ... but not listening to cdc at all is insane. So... none of that is really the hotels fault but I wished they would’ve stepped in. The pina colada was good but with a floater that the bartender accidentally spilled off ...cost me 16$. The rooms were decent for the price. Our bed had a dried worm stuck to it , a lizard in our ac and no plug to our Bath tub. This is actually getting funnier the more I write. You have to call the front desk to ask for a coffee Set. It’s hard to rate it bc my exp has downsides but the place is pretty good. Read less

We had a good stay at Coco Key, we picked it not only due to the waterpark, but due to the splendid location on International Drive.

We had a good stay at Coco Key, we picked it not only due to the waterpark, but due to the splendid location on International Drive. The waterpark facilities are amazing to have on days where you are not at the parks!! The slides were thoroughly enjoyed by our kids!! The rooms are somewhat ok. It was rather grubby and we had issues with water not draining in the bath. The A/C was excellent and was well needed in the heat of the Floridian Sun. The WIFI signal was pretty poor. The staff were excellent and the manager came out to welcome us which was a very nice, personal touch. Read less

My family of 20 stayed at coco key for 3 nights and it was way better than the reviews stated. I was very weary at first because of the reviews and thought it was going to be a waste of money. Upon arrival, Muhammad checked me in for 4 rooms. The best part was they were conjoining rooms. One room did have an ac that wasn’t working but as soon as I… Read more
My family of 20 stayed at coco key for 3 nights and it was way better than the reviews stated. I was very weary at first because of the reviews and thought it was going to be a waste of money. Upon arrival, Muhammad checked me in for 4 rooms. The best part was they were conjoining rooms. One room did have an ac that wasn’t working but as soon as I informed him, they changed it within 10 minutes. We had no issues with staff nor the visitors and we will be staying again soon 😀 definitely worth the money!! Read less

place is run like trash. No one enforces any rules.. Guests were eating and smoking in the pool. Not a placeforkids. No Cdc guidelines were followed this weekend as were told 50% capacity...im sure there were 50 people in the small pool area..so we didn't go.
