Oceania Beach Club
Ranked #8 of 13 Hotels in New Smyrna Beach
Reviewed 13 July 2009

This place is right on the beach and walking distance to Flagler avenue where they have good restaurants and shops. Our kids loved the beach, the water is very shallow for a good distance which makes it great for smaller kids. The building has gone through a complete makeover and loooks great. We stayed in Unit 805, the unit is oceanfront with a great view, it was updated with clean and comfortable beds and furniture. We can't wait to go back. Try Bostons Restaurant a few blocks away, Awsome food.

This was a last-minute, walk-in stay after driving to the beach for the day. The property has been renovated and updated - as the 6th floor oceanfront unit I stayed in was very nice. Equipped as a condo rental, with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a full kitchen, dining room, living room and balcony, the cost and availability were outstanding - especially given the oceanfront location as well as handy access to Flagler Ave locations a very short walk away. The front desk staff was helpful, informative, and friendly. If you are looking for a laid-back, friendly, clean place to stay - I certainly wasn't disappointed. New Smyrna is more a locals beach and not as developed as Daytona or other places - thus the appeal away from the maddening crowds. Breakers, a great beach eatery with fantastic burgers and views of the ocean are just steps away, along with all of the charm of Flagler Ave with it's shops, bars, art galleries, and eating establishments as well as the usual beach rentals. Easy access to the Intercoastal and all of it's activities makes this a great spot. The beach rentals are reasonable and worth checking out everything from umbrellas, to scooters, surf boards and quite a bit else. Not far from Chase's further south and J.B. Fish Camp - I would highly recommend New Smyrna for anyone looking for the authentic Florida experience. Low-key and laid-back, just as the beach should be.

The entire building has undergone a complete rennovation and the place is beautiful. Ask for room 304. It is very clean and comfortable.

My husband and I have stayed at Oceania at least 14 weekends over the past two years. Each unit is individually owned and furnished, and some are nicer than others- but only once did we request a change because of the condition of a unit.

Every visit we've noticed that improvements have been made to the building itself and many of the units have recently been refurbished. With it's location on the beach and closeness to the great shops and restaurants on Flagler Avenue, we will continue to stay at Oceania when we visit NSB.

The location is great, by the beach. However, the building itself is old. The room we got has very crappy bed, bad lighting. Our bed was crappy, we all didn't sleep well with sunken bed/ defective springs. Housekeeping knocks every morning asking if you need anything. However, they do not provide shampoo (i dont know why). We also do not have hairdryer! THe couch was also very old and "sunken." The staffs are friendly but the room itself and the furniture inside was very outdated. Poor lighting.

We were off to New Smyrna for weekend of beach, surf, and adult relaxation. Had booked a room at Oceania but cancelled after reading by the bad reviews written by other travelers. Those bad reviews are wrong b/c this place was wonderful!!

We drove over with no reservations anywhere and stopped in to check out several accomodations when we arrived it town. None of them really seemed to have "the feel" we were looking for. So decided to go in and check out Oceania in spite of bad reviews on this site. The front desk person was great! We told her what we were looking for, Since each room is different, she gave us keys to 3 rooms so we could see if we liked any. We LOVED the first room we walked into and went back and checked in right away (didn't even look at the other 2 rooms). The room was clean, the staff were friendly and accomodating. The beachfront room was DEFINATELY worth the extra $15 (over oceanview room). We should have stuck with them in the first place. We will definately be back!! Thanks Oceania for a great weekend get-away!

Husband and myself stayed at this property as part of an Florida package deal. The staff at Oceania isn't very friendly- they aren't impolite but they just don't seem to want to have anything to do with you. Some are better than others. Room we were in was facing the ocean- which was great- but the balcony was dirty and right over the pool. If you are staying- ask for a room on the 3rd floor or higher- otherwise you will have pool people staring right at you from morning to night. The ocean access is great- the hotel is right on the beach and it is an extremely short walk down to the water.

The room we were in was older- floors had obviously been redone recently in tile, but corners were very dirty. Walls needed a paint job. Furniture was older but clean. Our room had two showers- one with a bath that had absolutely zero pressure, and another stand-in with great pressure. There is minimal maid service- they basically come in and empty your trash and replace some of your towels. We ended up emptying our trash ourselves anyways (after every meal) because there was a tendency for fruit flies to appear whenever we ate. Dishwasher was full of dishes when we got in that had not been emptied.

The grossiest part of the entire condo for me was the kitchen- my husband prepared most of our meals because I just didn't like to be in there. The cupboards were dirty, there was no contact paper down in most of them, dishes had been put away dirty (we washed everything before using it), under the sink was absolutely DISGUSTING, (I immediately regretted looking there when we arrived) and the floor was dirty. The appliances were nice and clean- but the rest of the kitchen was just gross.
