Islander Beach Resort
Ranked #6 of 14 Hotels in New Smyrna Beach
Reviewed 13 June 2012

Long ago we bought a timeshare at the Islander. As our boys got older we decided we would travel to different destinations each year, so we sold our timeshare. After one year at Myrtle Beach, SC the boys begged to go back to the Islander! So, now year after year we are "renters" rather than owners at this wonderful resort.

Every year we go, there is something in the lobby, units and/or property that has been updated. The staff is fabulous and the place is very clean. There are activities for all ages that you can get involved with or pass on.

What do the kids love the best about this place? The fabulous ocean just a few steps away and the huge, deep pool is outstanding!

We were in the #3 studio apt., which was supposed to sleep 4. Believe me, it really could only hold 2. There was a very small, cramped "bedroom" with queen bed, dresser, overlooking the ocean. The kitchen area was so small that there was hardly any countertop on which to prepare food. The table was a very small, dropleaf table, that if we had pulled it out to use would have taken up so much space one could not walk around it. There was a pullout sofa instead of a murphy bed. I have Never in my life slept on such a bad bed. It felt like we were sleeping directly on the bars and wires. They brought up a waffle mattress cover to put on it, but that didn't help at all. We had to close it up and my husband slept on the closed sofa, which was hard because it was way too short for him, and I slept in a recliner chair. However, the floor space was so small that once the recliner was opened it was hard for someone to get to the bathroom. We have stayed in other units at The Islander. This one was the smallest I have ever seen. It should be relabelled to sleep 2, not 4. Of course the pool area was still very nice.

Room Tip: If you need to sleep 4, don't get a room with a pull-out sofa. Make sure it has a murphy bed in...

This is an older resort that is very well maintained. The pool area is outstanding. Something for everyone. Staff is very friendly. The reason for not a better rating is, I called several weeks before arrival and stated that my husband is handicapped and walks with a walker and cannot walk very far and requested a room close to an elevator. The desk clerk said we were assigned room 202 and yes there was an elevator. What she didn't say was that room 202 was as far away from the elevator as you could get. When we arrived, I called the front desk and was told that they were fully booked and could not change rooms. As a consequence, my husband spent a lot of our stay in the room. Over 100 +plus rooms and they could not find one room close to an elevator? We are exchange owners from Bluegreen and I guess we are used to staff that is more accommodating.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom ocean front for 5 nights, and didn't want to leave. The view was amazing! The pool was clean, and they play volleyball and bingo and have a great Sunday line up with contests for the kids and adults. Ice cream by the pool, tye dye shirts poolside, and they also have an adult only area. Great hotel! Will go back!

We have been owners here for 25 years and come every March. What a great place to be, right on the ocean with a great pool area. The building is older but very well kept and updates are always going on. There is nothing nicer than to get up in the morning and sit with my cup of coffee on the balcony or in the kitchen and watch for the dolphins to go by. This year we had exceptional weather and the beach was very busy which was lovely to see, lots of people in the oceoan.
The bathrooms are a little small, but we always adjust. Kitchens are well equiped and if you need anything the staff is wonderful at taking care of you.
I always feel like I have come home as soon as we arrive here.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony if possible.

We highly recommend the Islander Beach Resort. We loved our stay and I can't think of one negative about our week there except for maybe the small bathroom but we didn't even mind that much...the service was great. We had an oceanfront one bedroom condo which was beautiful and our view of the ocean from the living room and the bedroom was the best I've ever had....it was all good!

Room Tip: Try to get ocean front, the view is great.
