Las Olas Beach Clubs Resort Information
Las Olas Means "The Waves"
About the Area
It is a residential community, with many excellent restaurants, golf courses, grocery stores, drugstores and a Wal-Mart nearby, but a car is needed to get around. There is a Publix located a half of a mile North for your convenience.
About the Resort
Absolutely every spacious suite is oceanfront. Accessing the beach is easy from the pool and spa area. We consistently earn the Gold Crown rating from RCI because of the quality of the resort and the activities we offer.
Suite scheduling is done very close to check in date, so suite numbers are not provided in advance. We recommend you notify potential callers of your extension after your arrival or advise them to call during our office hours. The direct number for all suites is (321) 777-9300 and your suite number is your extension. The office is open 9-7 on Saturday, 9-3 on Sunday and 9-5 weekdays, the phone number is (321) 777-3224. We have an answering machine on the office number after hours and each suite has voice mail. Free long distance in the continental U.S. and Canada.
Mobile Devices and WiFi
We are on a hi-speed wireless system, the password will be provided on an orange slip upon check- in. You locate available wireless network and connect. Sorry, we do not offer computer training; we barely know how to keep our own machines happy 😉 If you do NOT have wireless capability, there is one CAT 5 jack in the dining area. Again, you must know how to drive your computer.
Things To Do
For nature lovers we recommend guided kayak tours of the Indian River. Many times manatees and dolphins can be sighted. Airboat rides offer a glimpse of natural Florida wetlands. The Brevard Zoo is excellent for all ages. Near the Kennedy Space Center is the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge, home of more protected species than any other county in the U.S. Boat tours of the Indian River Lagoon are a great way to spend an afternoon.
Port Canaveral, the world’s second busiest port, offers cruises, fishing boats, gambling cruises and restaurants. Cocoa Beach offers shopping, nightlife and the world famous Cocoa Beach Pier, other shopping includes Historic Cocoa Village, downtown Melbourne, two local malls and the Vero Beach Outlet Mall. You can even get a massage right in your room.
Things to Bring
We have a limited number of chairs on the beach. You may wish to bring your own beach chair/umbrella/blanket. We provide starter packs for the kitchen/bath in the suite with the basics and a packet of coffee for your first morning. Bring water wings for small fry and sunscreen, sunscreen, and more sunscreen.
Things NOT to Bring
Scooters, rollerblades and skateboards, unless you intend to use them off site. For safety and insurance reasons, they cannot be used on the resort property. There is a sidewalk in front of our property and a skate park & recreation center within a short drive.
There are 4 beach towels in each unit for the week. Boogie boards are available for free on a rinse-and –return basis, for ocean use only. We have sand toys for building castles as well as basketball. A gas barbeque grill is available for your use. Crib and high chair rentals are $10.00/each per week. Some handicap equipment is available, please call ahead and reserve these items. The pool does not accommodate rafts, but you may bring them or buy them for use in the ocean.
Some of our guests are visiting the area specifically to look for houses or condominiums for relocation. We highly Christine Foote, a realtor of Dale Sorensen Real Estate Inc. You may wish to touch base with her prior to arrival at (321)508-2282.
During the months of May through July, our beaches are the nesting grounds of the Loggerhead Sea Turtle, a protected animal. Females lay eggs nightly and the babies hatch thereafter. We offer an informative seminar every Sunday from May – July. The use of flashlights and flash photography is strictly prohibited on the beaches at night. Persons interested should at least know the basics before setting out to look for them.
Licenses can be obtained at Wal-Mart. Their experts can tell you what bait to use and what is biting.
We provide activities as part of a well-rounded vacation experience, to add to your enjoyment and enable you to meet the other guests. We do not promote sales at activities! Anyone with interest should see Karen – outside of our activities. The Monday Q&A Meeting is a good start - tons of information given.
Check-In is at 4:00pm. You are welcome to use the pool area before 4:00pm, but we have much to do to maintain the units and resort between 10:00am and 4:00pm so please respect our procedures and know we move as fast as humanly possible. For guests staying multiple weeks, we offer housecleaning on Fridays. There is no mid-week cleaning or towel exchange. Full size washers and dryers are in all suites.
Due to COVID-19 we have had to discontinue some of our resort activities. We have continued our weekly B-I-N-G-O games played around the pool and a pool party inclusive of karaoke, line dancing, ice-cream social, hula hoop contests, crab races, and a variety of other pool party fun. Krafty Karen is here twice a week doing Palm Tree Painting classes and Art & Crafts for you to make and take home. We have Tiki Bar where weather permits.
