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.

Won't Return Until Remodeled

While the staff was very friendly the condition of this hotel leaves much to be desired. It is my understanding that renovations are supposed to start in June/must be completed on this location or it will be shut down. While it was for Spring Break and we weren't in the room that much, I was disappointed between how the photos look and the actual room conditions. I would wait until to book at this location until remodeling has been completed!

Pick somewhere else

The housekeeping was horrible. They didn't do a good job cleaning when they decided to show up. I had to call 3 of the days to have someone come and clean our room. It was DIRTY!! Also, the pool was freezing (like jumping into an ice bucket). We never even used it because it was way too cold. The ocean was warmer so we went to the beach instead. I'd definitely choose a different hotel!

needs serious updating

Pool was not heated as stated. It was ice cold, to the point I could not go in it past my legs. Both hot tubs were freezing and broken all week, stated they had to order parts. Room was only cleaned one the whole week, kitchen was outdated, linens were poor quality and I had to call to receive them every day. Ice machines only worked on 7th floor, all others broken.

We just got back from there over spring break and we got upgraded and got the full kitchen! That came in so much handy! The beds were comfy. It was a great but for the money. Yes, it needs an upgrade but other than that it was awesome!

Didn't meet expectations

The room's carpet was filthy and the quality of everything from the walls to the sheets was old and needs work. The lights went out in several rooms during my stay, for about an hour on one of the days. The staff didn't have a clear response, or time frame, and had no idea what was going on. Otherwise, the staff was friendly and the location was semi-convenient with access to a strip mall.
