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.

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.

Birthday Celebration at the Beach

Overall, it was really good. Only downside was the indoor pool and hot tub were not available/working. One of the elevators wasn't working, but we were on the 3rd floor, so taking the stairs wasn't bad. Had to pay $5/day for parking which I didn't like, but at least I didn't have to hunt for a place to park. Housekeeping staff was extremely helpful and took care of requests quickly. Outdoor pool and kiddie pool was really nice and clean. Hotel location is close enough to see fireworks at the boardwalk pier, but far enough away the chaos of young partying people wasn't disruptive to my stay. Will definately stay here again.

Not a very good stay

The first morning there my Daughter dropped her camera from the five story level. Busted the lens. This was our fault. The next day we went shopping I left my camera in the room. Came back the camera was gone. The maids cleaned the room and the staff said the cable repair people were allowed in our room. When we came back the door was ajar. The door was in terrible shape. You had to slam the door to ensure it was locked. I felt the hotel was at fault for the loss of my camera because the door was faulty. They allowed unannounced people to enter the room, and they left our door open. They said I should have used the safe.

just a bed

The hotel in general was pretty sad, one elevator had been broken for 6 weeks, parking spaces blocked off for cement railings on upper floors breaking off, hot tubs not working, rooms not very clean, just needs lots of work and upkeep.

You get what you pay for

The room was clean and big with a kitchen. Doors had some issues but nothing major. If your looking for a basic hotel this is it. Far from the boardwalk on foot. Staff could have been more helpful. Nice pool area

Good location and price

The room was OK. The sliding door was broken, so a struggle to open and shut... Room needed work.

Great value for a family

This hotel provides a good value for families. It is an older hotel but the upkeep is good. A negative feature would be that you have to pay for parking and they automatically charge you for the safe whether you use it or not. Overall, the hotel is nice. However, I wouldn't visit Daytona Beach again due to the small beach area and vehicle traffic that is allowed on the beach. It is not paradise when you're laying on the beach between automobiles. If you lay out closer to the ocean, you end up getting wet because of the riptides.

Good for budget/family travelling but all cool bars are a bit far

LaPlaya is an old-fashioned resort with all amenities people need on vacation - inside and outside pools, kitchennette in the rooms, almost all rooms are oceanfront, bar near the pool, comedy club and lounge on the rooftop. The is a supermakert on the opposite side of the road as well as other stores, Ruby Tuesday. A couple of other restaurants. The bus system is pretty good in Daytona Beach so going places is quite easy for people who do not drive. The only dissapoitment is that all cool bars are a bit far from LaPlaya
