“Way, way better than average, great price, super location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

Who could ask for more? Unfortunately, our weather was miserable when we were there--cold, rainy but, the hotel was great! Really, it exceeded my expectations! We asked for an early check-in (noon) and received it. When we arrived the hotel had a sundae making and other listed activities were pool volleyball and WII competitions. Again, weather played in our decision to sit in the hot tub for the afternoon. The room was appointed amazingly nice! We had a suite with 2 bedrooms (one with an ocean view) and a pull out couch. Nice kitchen with every utensil one would need. But, here is the magic part for me--clean, clean and clean! We all want that, don't we? I could smell the clean of the linens--no stained furniture or strange curly hair to shower with. Maybe the hallways could be updated (I dunno, does that really matter) I have no problem highly recommending this place. (By the by, the price was great!)

Room Tip: check out is early - 10a

This seems like an older property that would benefit greatly from a renovation. However, it is clean and a fantastic spot on the beach. The staff were really nice and helpful. The ocean view was reasonably priced and had 2 nice flat screens. The kitchen had all you need for a short stay. The main bed was interestingly placed next to the outer window with shutter doors to get between the bed and the rest of the suite. Nice to wake up and see the sunrise. The pool looked really nice and big, although we did not have time to use it. We picked this location because we couldn't get a reasonably priced room in Daytona Beach. It was a short easy drive to DB.

Great location - right on the lovely beach and close to good restaurants, interesting shops, historical sites, visits to explore the eco side of Florida! Even the studio had plenty of room for the two of us - a bedroom area next to the sindow with view right on the ocean, a TV, and chest, sliding frosted glass doors to separate from the living area with another TV, DVD player, another chest, table with 4 chairs, small but full kitchen, sofa, armchair (both looked new), end tables w/ lamps tall enough to use for reading, overhead fan, and bathroom w/ sink and dressing area separated from room with toilet and bath/shower (kind of small room but adequate).
Nice , helpful staff. Coffee in room off lobby from 9 am, washer, dryer on second floor - would have been nice if anyone had written down or announced these were available.
Nice craft activities every weekday - tie-dye, decorating tiny birdhouses, beach ball beach totes, etc. Hot dogs, chips and sodas for $2 total everyday at lunch and sundaes or floats for $3 everyday. Pool games for kids and indoor activities for rainy days.
Very, very nice pool (big!), kiddy pool, separate smaller pool, lots of tables w/ umbrellas and chairs, hot tub w/ lift for disabled and separate hot tub. Water aerobics weekday mornings.
Salon and spa on site w/ 10% discount for guests.
Orientation talked almost exclusively about area restaurants and activities at resort.
The resort looks a little old in some of the rooms, but they are clean and nice. Would be nice if they upgraded their towels from the very thin, smaller variety.
We would definitely return here.

Room Tip: Higher floor, ask if you can have a balcony.

Place is in a great location! Staff is always friendly. A great value for your money. Been there many times over the years. Always seem to go back. Jan the weather is a little iffy. JB's fishcamp is a nice little casual fish & crab place a few miles down A1A. The Garlic restaurant is also a great place to eat. Only 1/2 mile away.

This timeshare resort was user friendly I would say. We were greeted by two friendly front desk agents and given a high floor that we had requested. All the workers were courteous and helpful. The view from this resort is awesome as the beach and pool are right there out the balcony.
The bathrooms are small but hey, who spends much time there? The kitchen was well stocked so we could do some cooking. The queen bed was soft like we like it. All in all a fine stay and I would come back anytime.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor, 6th or 7th.

We stayed here over Christmas and I would concur with other reviewers, the Islander Beach Resort is an older, but clean property with a nice staff. I didn't realize that this property started as a time share, and so I was surprised to find that the room was not cleaned daily. It might have been helpful to be informed of that on check-in, and maybe given an activity schedule. And yes, the bathroom is extremely small. But I will give them kudos for an extra nice pool and deck area and a perfect beach location. Overall, it's nothing fancy but was sufficient for our needs.

Older hotel. Reasonably clean. On the beach was the bonus along with an outdoor pool. Room was nice. We had a studio. Air conditioner was very loud. First night we were so tired we did not notice it as we slept. 2nd night we had troubles sleeping with the noisy air conditioner. Only planned to stay one day but after walking on the beach and enjoying it all day we decided to relax and stay one more day. WiFi worked great. At night I connected our laptop to their TV and streamed Netflix & watched what we wanted. Overall well worth it. Only next time we would get a room with a balcony and a quiet air conditioner. Staff is very courteous.

Room Tip: Room with balconies looked a lot nicer.
