We stayed here for a week at the start of February having done an exchange. The beachfront location is superb and is a real plus. Our apartment was on floor 11 - the top floor and with the balcony the view and sound of the sea, it was lovely.
The apartments are well appointed and kept very clean. We were impressed with the daily clean, replenish of filter coffee and the midweek linen change plus the equipment of the kitchen and the fact there was a safe for valuables.
The bedroom was a decent size, plenty of storage and the most comfortable of beds I have slept in for a long while.
The resort itself looks a little stark on first appearance but there is large lounge, gym, sitting room and lobby. Free computer usage is also available. A bar would be a really great addition - particularly for that first evening arrival!!
The outdoor pool is heated and there is a hot tub. The sun does disappear behind the building relatively early but you can either move out onto the beach (sun loungers and umbrellas cost about $5 per room per day but that also includes bike hire and surf boards) or adjourn to the sun terrace on the 6 th floor which being on the road side of the building catches the afternoon sun. We managed to a bit of sunbathing but the end of our week saw a cold front come in with cooler temps and rain!
Location wise there are a couple of restaurants within walking distance - Red Lobster was a good option but we ended up driving most nights into Daytona or out back across Dunlawton Ave. the main part of Daytona is about 5 miles north (we know we walked there and back!) where there is a cluster of restaurants, cinema and shops.
All in all we had a relaxing time, weather could have been better and there isn't a huge amount to do in the vicinity but the resort was very comfortable with that amazing sea view!
