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

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.

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

Bike Week

Hotel is in a good location, it has many stores and a supermarket across the street from it. The view from either side of the room is great. However, the door to the room was horrendous. It looked like it had been recycled from some other building and it did not close properly. The door to the balcony was worse and you would have to pull really hard on it to get it to close. The rug looks like it was the original one when the hotel oppened. In other words the room is very depressing, luckily we did not spend much time in the room.

Correct

Our room was oceanview efficiency with a kitchenette, everything was functional, we would appreciate a toaster, don't count on the cofee supply; i'ts just enough to make an half cup!! The beds got a little rebound but even comfortable. The hotel location is good, near a liquor store, pharmacy, groceries, restaurant. The outside and inside pool are not heating. The two outside spa are not functional, the inside one is very small. There's a beach volleyball playground but full of seaweed. All things considered, we enjoy being to LaPlaya, the price vs. quality is correct.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Use the bus service for transport. It cost 12 dollars for a week pass and got a large network. Be careful with the schedule during special event (ex: Nascar) night time or week-end.
