Just as refreshing are two oceanfront pools. Numerous shops and restaurants are within walking distance, and parking on-site is free.

Rooms

Most of the 107 eye-catching rooms, efficiencies and suites at the El Caribe Resort and Conference Center feature private balconies with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. Rooms are decorated in bright, warm colors that stick with the Caribbean palette. All feature refrigerators, microwaves and complimentary wireless Internet access.

Features

The beach in front of the El Caribe Resort and Conference Center is wide and stretches for miles in either direction. Guests spend days engaging in refreshing water sports (motorized sports are available for rent nearby), bike riding the 23-mile long beach, cooling off in the ocean, or relaxing beside one of the two oceanfront pools.

The resort is centrally located within walking distance to numerous dining establishments, shops, clubs and a water park. Ponce Inlet, a scenic beach town a few miles south, has numerous waterfront restaurants and two marinas with fishing guides.

OK Weekend Getaway

This hotel was good for just a night away. The location was just what we wanted a pool/beach view and easy access to the beach. It is within walking distance of fun places to visit which is also great because of traffic. It is a little outdated if your looking for something fancy. The floor had a certain dampness and stickiness about it so we just kept our shoes on when walking around. The refrigerator was a little rusty and the lightning in the room needs to be a whole lot better. We also didnt like the fact of adjoining rooms as the people next to us were early risers. The breakfast consisted of donuts, bagels, yogurt, and cereal. There was also a few drink choices. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the hotel and we didnt expect to have a kitchen in the room which was great.

Hotel in need of TLC

While the staff were very friendly and helpful, the room needed lots of handyman work - Lamp shades were wobbly, towel racks were loose, outlets were loose, and the phone only worked when the cord was jiggled.

You get what you pay for....

We were in Daytona for out first Coke 400 race... Hotel is on beach as advertised. If you are looking for a place to sleep and take a shower this place will suffice but very dated decor, room had distinct bad odor, A/C was not adequate, all plug ins worn out, blow dryer didn't work but got replacement on 3rd day of stay. Shower wall had many different colors of tiles where some had been replaced multiple times, black mold all around edge of tub, Did have small fridge with small microwave on top of it. Small TV. Balcony facing ocean with 2 chairs was nice. Free Continental breakfast each morning. Grocery store close by but had to drive for restaruants. Pool needed work and limited, worn lounge chairs, no bar. Direct access to beach though. Called front desk 2am to have partying on our floor calmed down. Not much sleeping going on. I believe Spring breakers and Speedway Fans have perhaps taken a toll on this hotel over the years. Won't stay here again.

Don't trust the Internet

This hotel is old and run down. We were supposed to have an oceanfront room but got a pool side room -first floor-so we got to hear all the noise from that. The shower didn't have a shower head so it was like using a garden hose. We will not stay here again.

Old and showing it

Anyone who rates this hotel above two stars is nuts. Other than being right on the beach, the rooms are ancient, clean and maintained to a bare minimum level ...this is a spring break place for sure but adults will not like it.
