Love, Love Loved our stay here. Impeccable, clean 2 bedroom South Tower 3rd floor. Beds were very comfortable - best night sleep with the sliding door open - could hear the ocean. From the moment of check-in to check-out superb. The staff was exceptional from the front desk, to housekeeping to maintenance. The staff went above and beyond caring - an example, our door was left slightly ajar while my daughter stepped out for a moment. Maintenance stopped by to see if everything was okay - very much appreciated. The gentleman putting out the chairs on the beach in the morning said a very cheerful 'good morning'. Everyone seems to truly like working here. The housekeeping staff offered on several occasions to take group photos when they saw us taking pictures -- they always said good morning and were very cheerful. This is what makes a 'getaway' feel more like 'home'. The location is directly on the beach - several miles north of they busy Daytona Beach strip. Very quiet here, but still with plenty to do - the beach is absolutely perfect - clean, quiet. Lovely pool area with plenty of chairs & hot tub. The young kiddos will love the pool with slide. Ihop open 24hours across the street, Dunkin Donuts within walking distance. We cooked most everyday in the unit and everything we needed was available (pots, pans, glass cookware, utensils). We will definitely be back.

Today ends our timeshare exchange week in the South Tower, 4th floor, ocean front 2 bedroom villa. We were surprised and happy beyond words to be placed in this unit. Thank you so much to Angie for a superb anniversary week. We have stayed with friends in the North Tower and had a wonderful 2 bedroom spotless condo at that time also in 2009. Our villa this week was spotless and everything was in perfect working order except after 2 days we realized our door was not locking when we left, One call to the front desk and someone was there within 5 minutes to fix the problem. One disappointment was that we did not receive a list of activities when we arrived and when I called to inquire about bingo, it had already been held...I love bingo..so disappointment. Parking at times can be frustrating, but we always seemed to manage..South tower only provides 2 handicap spaces and we were only lucky once to grab one. I knew the outside pool was only 3 feet deep, but was disappointed to learn the indoor pool is the same. So, I couldn't get my swim exercise in. It would be nice to have a deeper outside pool where aquarobics could be offered. A nice touch is the complimentary lounges and umbrellas for the beach. our unit had a king bed in the master and 2 double beds in the 2nd bedroom..Each bedroom had a full bath with the master having a separate shower and a beautiful huge 2 person jacuzzi. The morning sunrises were absolutely beautiful. There was a large balcony accessible by the master bedroom and the living area and a 2nd balcony off the 2nd bedroom. The washer/dryer were stackables and worked great. Although our home resort does provide daily housekeeping/towel exchange at no cost, we are well aware that most of the timeshares do not so this was not a bother to us, especially with your own washer/dryer. Everyone we encountered and I mean everyone working at this resort is the most pleasant I have ever encountered. They always greeted you with smiles and ALWAYS said hello. What a pleasure...kudos to all the workers there. The bath soaps provided are very tiny, so it's better to bring your own. No other bathroom amenities are provided. Paper towels were provided with an extra roll under the sink. Also about 4 tablets for the dishwasher. A small starter package of coffee is also provided but not enough for a full pot. Also provided were two pot holders, a dish towel and dish cloth. Plenty of towels are provided under the bathroom sinks. A packet of laundry soap is provided for one load of wash..Beds were very comfortable and pillows were plentiful. Full kitchen fully equipped with everything you need. We had a wonderful week and we agreed this was one of the best exchanges from Interval. We would most definitely return to this resort and would recommend to anyone. A few steps out your door and you are on the beach. The one thing to be aware of is you share the beaches in this area with cars. That is the one thing I don't like. IHop directly across street and in an area of every kind of restaurant you can imagine. Grocery stores also within a very short distance.

I had a one bedroom condo in the south tower (Phase II). The unit was very clean with nice furniture and fresh paint. There was no cleaning provided during the week. Towels could be exchanged. The unit had washer and dryer. Beach towels (skimpy) had to be checked out and returned each day. The pool was good for kids. The hotel provided beach loungers and umbrellas at no charge. The balcony had a view but there was a lot of noise from the road. The units on the lower floors were blocked by trees or other buildings. The beach was very nice. October is a good time as long as you avoid Biketoberfest.

Exchanged this condo with my timeshare & it was rated a silver (select property). HAH! The only thing good about it was it was directly on the beach & the chairs/umbrellas were free. We had to be in the oldest of the 3 buildings...no inside laundry, no hooks to hang towels on in the baths, bedroom furniture was oversized & it was very cramped, sofa was worn & cushions were flat, not even a notepad & pen to jot down addresses.........the galley kitchen was so narrow, we couldn't open the fridge all the way. Plus, there was no dishrack for hand washing dishes. Also noticed later that there was a little mold on the tub faucet. Staff was nice enuf but I know we'll never stay here again. We would have asked for a room change, but they were full.

Room Tip: Ask for the newer building if you can. It HAS to be better than what we had.

Very nice 2 bedroom unit with plenty of amenities. We stayed in the south tower on the fourth floor. Great to have a washer and dryer, 2 jetted tubs went to waste because we are shower folks. Many nice restaurants in the area.BUT- the free wireless would not connect to my IPad, no one brought fresh linens even once so I washed and dried our own, I noticed that other units received bags of fresh towels? we agreed to participate in the 90 minute presentation but I was upfront with my refusal to purchase. I guess they thought they would convince us otherwise. And I did notice Keith's level of friendliness changed towards us. Hospitality counts all through a visit doesn't it? In spite of this we would like to return because it is a nice place-we just are not interested in vacation clubs.

Room Tip: South tower is best. No smoking and laundry facilities in unit.

We exchanged a week to come here thru our timeshare. Had a 2 bedroom with an oceanview! Tried to request a room in the south tower to have laundry in the suite but were told we couldn't as we weren't timeshare owners there. There were some pros and cons to staying here.

PROS
friendly staff
awesome lazy river pool with tipping buckets and a water slide
spacious rooms and adequately stocked
beach towels provided and changed daily at front desk
loungers and umbrellas provided too on the beach (one of the only resorts that do this)
lots of loungers around pool as well

CONS
huge garbage bins on each floor....right outside your room
glass dishes supplied....went to buy disposables for the kids
North tower didn't have in room laundry but supplied on certain floors for $2/washer $2/dryer
exercise room very small
some arcade machines were broken

Overall, we had a good time. Would we come back here? Yes, if we ever decided to come back to Daytona, but that isn't likely.

Nice 2 Bed, Bath in north tower on north side unit 703. However, can hear the many roof air conditioners running and a noise we could not figure out. Sounded like a little drummer boy at times (all hours) and then quiet at times.

Room Tip: Avoid the top floor!
