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.

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

Great family getaway

We were on the ground floor which was great with having a 5 year old. We were right at the pool and had a great view on the ocean. We have stayed here 4 years in a row and this was the best year yet.

La Dump

The carpet is so dirty its repulsive. Its black and has holes. They twist all the towels, which are old and stained. Overall a dive. Pretty cheap but I recommended you spring for a bit better.

It is what it is...a great value

I was expecting a clean room with a view and that's exactly what i got. I paid $60 a night. You will not find that anywhere for a ocean front room.

Out dated

The staff is great. The indoor pool is closed and the hot tubs are boarded up with plywood. The doors are horrible they don't want to shut or open. The towels are more like hand towels and they are so ruff. The furniture is nasty and from the 1980 s it dark colored wood and not the light they say. The place is over run with roaches it is really quite gross and nasty. I think for what the place is they should not be charging you to park and the $5.00 parking advertised is not true they charge $7.00 a day. The restaurant is only open for breakfast. The lounge is not really a lounge it is nothing more than a bartender outside by the pool. The place overall is misrepresented and I think this is a real shame. It would be well worth your money to stay some where else and pay a little more to be some where clean.
