“Really enjoyed our stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We were pleasantly surprised by our stay. Even though our room wasn't facing the ocean, the way the balconies were positioned allowed us to watch the sunrise over the ocean. Appreciated the front desk who recommended places for sight-seeing. Nice pool. Enjoyed watching sunset in the lounge chairs that were on the sea wall facing the ocean. Breakfast was very good, even with a very crowded dining room. Very few people ate supper there so there were few choices on the menu and one server for the entire dining room.

We stayed at this hotel 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The room was nice and clean, the staff were very friendly, and it is in a great location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Plus! All rooms have a balcony view of the ocean!

We recently stayed at the Aku Tiki in Daytona Beach and were pleasantly surprised at how nice the hotel was, even in this busy tourist town. We live fairly local and have stayed in many hotels in Daytona Beach for short holidays. We will always stay at the Aku Tiki from now on. The desk girls were friendly and helpful and the breakfast staff worked hard at keeping the hot food bar fresh and stocked. The pool area was extremely clean and appealing, including nice tables with umbrellas. It would be a great place to bring a family and enjoy the pool and beach. Request a room with a south view, as it will overlook the pool, hot tub and beach. If bringing children, a first floor room would be great, (on the south side facing the pool), as access to the beach and pool are fabulous. Our room was spacious, clean and included a nice balcony with chairs and small table. This hotel is a must stay when visiting Daytona Beach.

Room Tip: Pool side for a great view.

Stayed here a couple of nights over Thanksgiving while enjoying the Turkey Rod Run. The beachfront location is fantastic, and all the rooms have balconies angled to give you a view of the ocean. The rooms have nice kitchenettes and are spacious. Beds are not spectacular but are comfortable enough.

However, when I opened the closed I was immediately assaulted by a musty/mildewy/moldy odor coming from the closet. I grabbed the luggage stand, quickly shut the door and did not open it the rest of the stay. I could sense a trace of the stale odor in the rest of the room -- although my wife who has asthma was able to stay there, so it wasn't bad. I know mildew is a constant battle at the beachfront, but the closet was not usable as a result.

Thank you for your taking time to review us on TripAdvisor. While we’re happy that you enjoyed the room overall, we do apologize for the unpleasant odor in your closet. Our staff works hard to keep the guest rooms in tip-top shape but we fell short of that standard in your case. We do encourage guests to let us know during their stay if there is anything that falls short of expectations so that we can resolve an issue immediately. We have addressed this particular issue with our staff to help ensure that we improve for future guests. We do hope that you come back to stay with us again and give us a chance to exceed your expectations!

It was our first time in Daytona Beach and we were not sure at all where to go. We are glad to have stayed here. We had a very nice view of the ocean, the room was quiet, clean and spacious. Having a 6 years old and a 8 month old baby, it was definitely a plus to have a refrigerator, microwave and mini stove in the room. The restaurant was a bit outdated but the food was good after a long trip. The breakfast had bread, bagels, juices, pancakes, scramb. eggs, sausage, cold milk, cereal and coffee. If you want more, conveniently there is an IHOP right across the street. The staff was very pleasant, polite and quick with any requests. We would definitely go back there.
