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
