Vibrant Daytona oceanfront resort offers sun, sand and entertainment

Beach-lovers flock to this lively resort a few miles north of the Daytona strip. This is a quieter part of the beach, but no less vibrant when the live entertainment kicks up poolside. The beach here is wide and stretches for miles in both directions, perfect for walking and biking. The Caribbean-themed rooms have balconies with ocean views. La Playa Resort is within walking distance to restaurants and shops, and a short drive to the speedway and several golf courses.

Highlights
  • Oceanfront pool and lounge and kiddie pool
  • Hot Tubs
  • Tiki Bar
Rooms

The 238 stylishly decorated rooms at La Playa Resort have a distinctive Caribbean feel, with colorful fabrics and wood furniture. The rooms are housed within an nine-story structure and all come with private balconies and ocean views. Other amenities include kitchenettes, premium cable television, microwaves, refrigerators, coffee makers with gourmet coffee and tea.

Features

La Playa Resort is situated on a magnificent section of a wide 23-mile beach. The hard-packed sand and refreshing surf attract sunbathers, swimmers, surfers and bike riders. Motorized water sports such as jet-skiing and parasailing are available nearby. The Ocean Waters Spa offers a variety of European Spa treatments overlooking the ocean.


The oceanfront pool deck is a perfect respite from the salt water and sand. The poolside Tiki Bar serves lunch and drinks, and live entertainment performs poolside on weekends. The resort is convenient to numerous restaurants and shops, including a large shopping center across the street. Plan a day trip to Kennedy Space Center, Disney theme parks and Universal Studios.

Dangerous Hotel

Upon our arrival I was told that it would be $15/day for a fold out bed which I was told previously when i called was free. There was not a complimentary breakfast. Our room was VERY small. The key card kept having to be reset. Our bathroom was SUPER tiny and the ceiling was so low that my 6ft tall husband's head touched the ceiling. The walls were covered in patches. The bathroom ceiling was covered in rust. There were bugs in the room, which the staff cared nothing about. And the worst thing is that our car was broken into in their parking deck. When i asked to see security footage and what they would do to help us they handed me a phone to call the cops. I have a cell phone thank you. It costs us over $200 to get our car unlocked since they busted the locks out of our car. We now have over $1500 in damage. Overall the room was small with bugs, the stairs to the pool were caving in, and our car was broke into. I am very unhappy.

Family time

I was not expecting a whole lot because of the price I paid...and I'm not hard to please but the rooms need a lot of improvement. You have to use all the muscle you have to open and close the door, the microwave and refrigerator was rusty, the air conditioner leaked and soaked the floor all the way from the balcony door completely around the bed, and nails were exposed around the edge of carpet meeting tile. The pool was fine except for the mildew all around it (or looked to be mold or maybe just needs painted) the hot tub smelled like dirty feet. The pictures on website are deceiving

Family getaway

I will say that this was the first and the last time we stay at this hotel. The beds are too small, the TV was very old and nothing good too see , even though we had to pay some fee because of the WiFi and the television. Also, we request an extra bed plus some other stuff and was never available. The balconies were unpainted and under construction. The overall stay was not good at all.

Do not stay here

We Arrived 2 Hours Early And Couldn't Check In The Room Wasn't Ready And That Was Fine. The Staff Called When The Room Was Ready. We Usually Stay In Cheaper Places Nothing Fancy, But This Place Where Do I Start?? The Back DooR Didn't Want To Lock The Lock Was Broken, The Carpet Was Old And Nasty, The Strips Were Gone Separating Tile From Carpet Stepped On Carpet Tacks,The Sink Stopped UP Had Maintenance Come Up He Plunged Nasty Water On Ou Stuff And Left The Mess Couldn't Be Fixed Till Next Day. No Parking We Left To Go Eat Came Back No Where To Park. Undesirable People Hanging Out In The Parking Garage. Had To Go Inside Lobby And Wait For Parking.People On Our Left Smoking Weed On Balcony Kid On Our Right Throwing Water Balloons Ice And Other Stuff Over The Balcony. Pool Filthy And Hot Tub Was Yellow! We Did Not Swim Or Get In Hot Tubs. They Didn't Stock Our Room Had To Go Get Toilet Paper And Ask For Towels. Our Towels Had Stains On Them. They Charged Me A Resort Fee Trust Me When I Say This Is No Resort! Do Not Stay In This Hotel!! The Only Good Thing I Can Say Is The Staff Was nice

Fantastic Family Getaway

There is a grocery store, liquor store, wall greens, laundromat, and a Denny's right across the street. The pool is large and goes to 10 feet deep. I liked this hotel and would go back again!

Bad bad bad

Room door would barely lock, balcony door would come off its track and get stuck. Found a roach in the shower, someone had literally pooped in the elevator while someone else had set off a stink bomb in the stairwell. Tiki bar is what sold me on the hotel when booking online, but it was rarely open!!! Closed at 5pm! If you just want to be by the beach and don't care for amenities, this place would be ok. I will not be going back, though.
