“Clean, very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Great facility. Very clean, nice staff. Right on the beach, beautiful pool, shuffle board and every day there are activities. They have tons of things kids can do. You can checkout chairs, umbrellas, towels. I would love to stay here again. We had a neighbor that accidently slammed their doors. I spoke to the front desk and they took care of the neighbor. No more slamming doors.

Room Tip: stay away from the elevator, can be noisy

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

We stayed at Tropic Shores from March 3 – 10, 2012 and March 31 – April 7, 2012.
We also visited last year in March as well. We are owners of 2 one bedroom units.
This resort is older, but it is well maintained. It is directly on the beach, with all units facing the ocean. You can open your balcony door and relax on the sofa or balcony and see and hear the ocean. In the morning, the sunshine creates a golden walkway on the ocean that lights up photos. The staff is helpful and the security has been tightened this year by giving guests wristbands to wear so they can determine who are guests and people off the street.
There were lots of fantastic amenities available. Our favorites are the daily housekeeping including making the bed, cleaning the bathroom, taking out the trash & changing out the kitchen & bathroom towels – luxury and the availability of beach chairs and umbrellas, boogie boards & bicycles. The staff was super & always accommodating. We had a wonderful time & we plan on making annual visits. Everything that is needed for a great holiday is within walking distance (restaurants, drug and grocery stores and especially the beach!)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

We were there for a week. From outside the building and from inside the Lobby it seems a hotel from the 60's. Not bad, but far from "luxury". The good things are the service and attention from all the people and the beautiful condo units that they have. ALL of them have ocean view and are very comfortable. Full kitchen, living and 1 or 2 bedrooms. The location is the best in Daytona, close to restaurants and a great Supermarket (PUBLIX). You can save a lot of money if you cook in the unit or if you buy your dinner from Publix.
If you go further north you'll find "more luxurious" hotels but the sorrounding neighbourhoods are "not good". We were the 2nd week of January and is highly recommended: good temperature and very quiet (also few cars on the streets).
For $20 a week (p/room) you can have unlimited use of beach chairs, umbrellas and bycicles
You'll also have several nice place to visit (including the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse (just $5).
Daytona is a nice place to be for a week.

Room Tip: Any room you take is good. ALL of them have Ocean view.

My family has stayed at the Tropic Shores many times. The building is always neat and clean and the staff is very nice. The condos are right on the beach in Daytona Beach Shores. Grocery shopping, restaurants, and shops are nearby. The pool and hot tub are always clean and relaxing. There are activities for all ages. It has always been the perfect place to bring my children. We have wonderful memories of time spent at the Tropic Shores.

One of our favorite activities in in Ponce Inlet (5 miles south) on A1A - the Marine Science Center. You can go there and see injured turtles being rehabilitated. Ponce Inlet also has beautiful beaches.

We should have been notified of the construction going on.
When these facilities open i'm sure they will be very good but today i'm not so happy.and this is the week before Christmas. Yuk! they have made the use of the pool and hot tub next door available to us. (but it's not the same) Lot's of activities., pool tables, air hockey, tv room, games room, exercise room .
All rooms face east. beautiful ocean and sunrise views.
there is public access to the beach rite beside the property.
i would stay here again..( if/when the construction is finished)

Room Tip: west facing sundeck on 6th floor has lounge chairs

We stayed at Tropic Shores from 8/13/11 - 8/20/11 through an RCI trade. The main reason we choose this resort was that all rooms are ocean front. That is the single most important factor when we choose a place to stay for a beach vacation - ocean front. We can stay home in NC and not see the beach! Overall the reviews on this site were good & that also helped us to make our choice. We were in unit 604. There are 8 units per floor on 10 floors for a total of 80 ocean front units. The two end units on each floor are 2 bed/2 bath with two balconies - one ocean front & one side view. Then the middle 6 units are 1 bed/1 bath with one balcony off of the living room that is ocean front. The bedroom window faces onto the hallway/street side. The 6th floor has a sundeck that faces the intercostal water & gets the afternoon sun. The sundeck wall is pretty high so if you sit in one of the loungers you can only see the sky not the beautiful view over the water. We were in a 1 bed/1 bath unit for my husband & I & it was just perfect. The unit was very recently renovated with new everything right down to the furniture & the linens. When you entered the unit you could look to the right & see out over the balcony to the ocean and the bedroom was immediately to your left (which was the street side of the building. The bedroom did have a window but ours looked out to the two elevators & then on over the sundeck. When entering the unit the bathroom was diagonally across from the front door to the right. The bathroom was tiled a little over half way up the walls. It had a new tub, curved shower rod & a great vanity that was higher than normal due to a drawer that ran the full length under the vanity. Inside the vanity were two additional drawers for storage. There was a nice Conair hairdryer on the wall & plenty of places to hang wet towels. The bathtub was super deep & I took a nice hot bath the 1st night we got there - that's how new & clean the tub was. Walking past the bathroom the open kitchen with a breakfast bar was on the left with a 4 person dining table & chairs to the right. Then the living room was next & was the width of the kitchen & dining area with a sliding glass door leading to a good sized balcony with a small table & two molded plastic chairs with arms. There were also two very wide towel bars on the balcony where you could dry your towels & suits. The floors in the unit were all 16" ceramic tile with the exception of a very low pile carpet in the bedroom. There was a large closet in the bedroom with plenty of extra hangers and a hall closet that housed the safe, a clothes basket, an iron & board, a broom & dustpan and more hanging space. There were two flat screen TV's. One in the bedroom and one in the living room. There were lots of channels & free HBO for all you TV lovers! The living room had a sofa & a recliner - neither of which were very comfortable. They reminded me of the furniture in a hospital & I'm sure were chosen for durability more than comfort. The kitchen was fully stocked & there were more items you could 'check out' from the front desk. I checked out a non stick frying pan & a pizza pan. We loved the unit!
There were lots of fantastic amenities available. My favorite one was free & it was daily housekeeping including making the bed, cleaning the bathroom, taking out the trash & changing out the kitchen & bathroom towels - luxury!! They also offer a package including beach chairs and umbrellas, boogie boards & bicycles. It's just over $5 a day per unit or $21.30 + tax for the week per unit. 1 bedroom units can get 4 chairs, 2 umbrellas, 4 boogie boards & 4 bicycles. I was concerned about the condition &/or availablility of the chairs & umbrellas but they were great. The umbrellas were large & the chairs were the tri-fold chairs that are adjustable on the top & bottom. All you had to do was go to the front desk (8:30am at the earliest) and tell them you were ready to get chairs & umbrellas. The front desk then radios down to the Amenities Staff - outside by the pool - to let them know that you are on your way down. Someone from the Amenities Staff then meets you by the pool to take your order for chairs, umbrellas, etc & then delivers them to the beach & sets them up where ever you choose. When you are ready to come off the beach it is your responsibility to bring your items back to the resort and put them by the pool. They also had a cookout on Wed & Fri for lunch with hamburgers, hot dogs, chips & a drink. There was an ice cream social just about every day. And there was a pancake breakfast one day. There were lots of other activities - too many to list.
My only complaint would be that the walls are paper thin. We could hear every little thing coming from the units beside us and we also had elevator noise because our bedroom window was right by the elevators. It was not much of an issue for us because they were not too busy. It will not keep us from returning to the resort. Overall I have nothing but good things to say. The staff was super nice & accomodating & the resort was like new. We had a wonderful time & we will definitely be back!!

Room Tip: I would recommend a 2 bedroom because they are all on the end.
