“Fantastic stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2011

From the hotel staff to the spa attendants and Azure staff, everyone made this getaway for my wife and I fantastic! The gentleman at the front desk went out of his way to accommodate us. The room was great, the Spa experience was top notch, and the dinner we had in the Azure was 5 star quality. I never write reviews, but honestly the entire staff made our "Couples Retreat" very special and I feel they deserve the accolades.
Thank you

Great location away from busyness of Daytona downtown but close to all attractions. Also close to Daytona speedway and Ponce Inlet. Great service and pool right on the beach. They also provide fixings to make s'mores at the fire. Can also ride bikes and drive your car right onto the beach. The rooms were beautifully done.

Love, Love, Love this hotel! I will stay here again and again. My husband and stayed the first weekend of Daytona Bike Week and we loved it. There are not many really nice hotels in Daytona Beach - I am being generous here because I haven't stayed anywhere really nice since the Adam's Mark was new, like 15 - 20 years ago? So this was a huge surprise for us. First off, it was biker friendly, which was super nice. Bikers got to park right out front by the valets at the front door - always a perk when riding. The service was impeccable from the front desk, to the bar, restaurant, room service staff. The restaurant was great - the ambiance, the food, the fabulous service. The decor and layout were just beautiful in the public areas as well as the rooms. The out door seating with couches and cabanas by the pool and tiki bar were wonderful but the Best Best Best were the fire pits with Adirondack chairs overlooking the beach! They even offer smores kits to roast your own over the fire! Absolutely Fabulous!

Recently, myself and three friends visited The Shores Indulgence Spa. Upon entering the resort, we were told that the spa was upstairs. After finding our way to the spa, we entered a dimly lit, poorly ventilated small room. No one was there to greet us, offer us a beverage etc. After waiting ten minutes, a spa employee walked out and asked us if we were her 10:45 eye brow wax. When told no, she immediately exited, only to come back a few minutes later and ask us the same question. At that time, we asked for some water and were given four bottled waters. Needless to say, the treatments (one facial, three massages) were okay. When finished with our treatments, we were ushered out the door within minutes (in other words, there was no time to relax after the treatment, no option to spend time in a steam or sauna room, etc.) After visiting several spas, I would have to say this was the least "rejuvenating" experience I have had. Considering the steep prices at The Shores as well as the lackluster service and amenities, I would not return.

We took a trip to Daytona for Valentines Day weekend! We enjoyed our stay at the resort. Friendly, nice, clean and very helpful staff. Anything we needed they brought. The Valet parking was fast and efficient. Excellent food, beverage and snacks. The rooms were a little small, but overall comfortable and clean. I would certainly visit again. Hope to plan another trip in the fall! this is certainly my new daytona get a way accomodation.

My boyfriend surprised me with a 3- day surprise Valentine's vacation at Shores Resort and Spa! As soon as I walked in I was astonished! This resort is beautiful! From the minute I walked in the staff was friendly and curtiousy. My boyfriend had arranged for an oceanfront room on the sixth floor. To his surprise we were not oceanfront. He called the front desk and complained. They were nice enough to accommodate us with a room on the second floor oceanfront. They also gave us a late check out for the inconvenience. The food and drinks are great! We had our Valentine's day dinner at the restaurant, our waiter Swan was marvelous. The food was to die for. The amenities were also gtreat, especially the big hot tub! I had a memorable stay. I will back!

The rooms are fabulous, the service is top of the line - but what i loved the most is the outside patios out back. There are i believe two pools and a hot tub, all right on the beach, with gas rock fireplaces surrounding you, tiki lights, beautiful landscaping... did i mention right on the beach? I could stay out there a roast smores all day and all night - a great location, the restaurant is amazing with outstanding service and excellent food. Make sure you order the grouper tacos! MMMMMM!

Thank you for staying at The Shores and for the kind words. The ocean terrace really is the heatbeat of the hotel -- and our firepits and signature "Shores S'mores" really are quite popular -- and fun! Hope you come visit us again soon!
