Ola Grande
Reviewed 21 May 2012

Rooms were clean, nice pool, right next to cocoa beach pier, private access to the beach, outdoor showers to rinse off. BUT... the management was VERY nosy. We used to live near cocoa beach so our friends came to visit us. Management wanted know who was coming, how many, when they were coming and when they were leaving. We were told we needed to "check" them in/out. We were accused of not rinsing off before entering the pool (sand at the bottom of pool before we entered). They were waiting at the bottom of the steps for the keys when we left. We felt like big brother was always watching. We left the condo as we found it AND washed the towels and linens before leaving. We did receive our deposit back but wasn't sure I was going to. I understand running a tight ship but I wont' return unless management changes their ways.

We have stayed at Ola Grande on 2 occasions, the first May 2009 and most recently March 2010. We would not stay anywhere else, the units are perfect, very comfortable, and the location on Cocoa Beach next to the pier could not be better.

We would certainly recommend Ola Grande for families or couples.

Also if you wish to visit the Disney Parks they are only 1 hour away by car, and there is always Kennedy Space Center, which is definitely worth a visit.

We really enjoyed our stay @ Ola Grande. Our unit was #208 and just perfect! Rose and Sam are great onsite mgrs. and very friendly. The hotel is right next to the pier and still far enough away for families. Perfect location and close to everything.

We've been vacationing at Ola Grande for 25 years. Always courteous and helpful managers and neighbors. This is our hideout. No reason to stay anywhere else. We'll be back for Memorial Day.

I talked to Sam and Rose about the grumpy guy who was unlucky enough to visit during major construction. They did everything they could to accommodate him. Some people are hard to please.

I used to stay at Ola Grande with my parents years ago and they still go there every year for 4 or 5 weeks in May. I have 3 boys now aged 7,8 and 11 and we took them there for the first time 2 years ago and went again this year, returning last week, and they absolutely love this place! We also got married this time on Cocoa Beach so this place is very special to us.

For the children Ola Grande was perfect. We virtually had the pool to ourselves for the 3 weeks we were there and it is such a quiet place yet perfect being right on the beach as well. There is a little bit of noise in the evnings from the pier but once you are in your apartment you don't really hear it. I would be more than happy to go to Cocoa Beach every year for our holidays and would go to Ola Grande every time.

Stayed for 2 weeks in this condo.

Superb location, right next to pier in Cocoa Beach. However, there was a substantial amount of building and renovation work going on, and unfortunately, it really spoilt the tranquility and enjoyment of the holiday. It was impossible to sit on the balcony for breakfast, and we were woken at 8am every day by builders working.

When we asked the superintendant for advice, and consequently complained, she was unhelpful.

It was a shame because the restaurants, bars, scenery, etc, in cocoa beach was fantastic. Next time we visit, we would stay in a larger condo complex, or a hotel.
