“Bluegreen Owner - Not a good RESORT - Just a MOTEl”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

I'm a Bluegreen owner and I called and complained to Bluegreen as this is a MOTEL and does not qualify AS CONDO. I'm as irritated with BG for listing it that way as I am with them. I had guests and there were 4 adults crammed into a poorly remodel of 2 small hotel rooms combined and called a "Deluxe 2 Bedroom Condo". The kitchen was a tiny efficiency, crammed into the living room. The bathroom was just off the front door - just like a motel and NOTHING had been remodeled in that bathroom for at least a century. No central air, just a unit in the wall - again MOTEL. I could have found and cheap hotel on the strip that would have been just as nice. Was relatively clean - that's about it.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Stayed here for a week during Bike Week/Spring Break. Whole town was packed.

The good - The staff at reception and the bar are great people. The free laundry was a bonus. It is right on the beach. Mini golf across the road is fun. Shop across the road for supplies.

The bad - No internet here. You get a dozen pizza flyers shoved under your door daily. My room faced the mini golf, not the ocean.

Overall, average.

Room Tip: It's obvious but get one facing the beach!

We stayed for a week at the end of March 2012 and can't fault this hotel. We arrived early and our room was ready. The front desk staff quickly sorted out an RCI upgrade problem and we got a beautiful room looking out over the beach and ocean where we watched dolphins swimming by...doesn't get much better than that! The location is good with several great restaurants within easy walking distance, Publix and other stores are about 1 mile away and Daytona Beach etc only a few miles away. It's a quiet area but close enough to busier areas and main roads. There is some entertainment if you want it and snacks available from the bar.

Room Tip: There are ocean view rooms and rooms overlooking the road so of course ask for an ocean view room if...

We stayed at Casa del Mar for one week over spring break and the staff was extremely kind and helpful. The best thing was that the resort is right on the ocean and our kids had fun monitoring the daily tides, especially due to a full moon. The free laundry was a huge plus, too. The rooms were basic and had a full kitchen with a balcony overlooking the Atlantic which we enjoyed immensely. Although it's not a 5 star resort we had a great time.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in a 1 bedroom unit. Think they may have turned a studio into a BR by putting a wall between couch and bed. Very crowded BR. We were told that the unit had be renovated. My question was "What was Renovated"? The grout in the tiles were black ( not orginal color-could tell by looking at tiles in places were there was no traffic ). The furniture was old and out dated.

The good things here were the view, pleasant staff and great location.

The location of Casa Del Mar is great for a beach vacation with beautiful sunrises. They have done major renovations on the bedrooms and living room in a 1 bedroom. The outside pool, hot tub, and decks look nice after being updated. The kitchens and bathrooms have not been touched yet and I was told they will be next to bring them up to Bluegreen standards.
We came in for October bike weekend and it was quite an experience with I think thousands of motorcycles in the streets of Ormond and Daytona. I am not a biker but I really enjoyed seeing so many different bikes. We had several bikers in the hotel and all i chatted with seemed very nice and from so many different areas. I will think about going back next year at the same time. To many the noise might bother you if your on the street but behind the hotel you only heard the ocean. Only a few young hot dogs were driving crazy and the police on the beach were quick to pull them over.
We had a fun week and would love to come back to Casa Del Mar again as the had a great and friendly staff who were quick to help you in anyway they could. We had a bad light in our bathroom and I think in five minutes we had a very pleasant man fix it. We even went to the timeshare presentation and they were not bad to talk too. No real high pressure.

Room Tip: Get an ocean front room for the fantastic views. Most rooms are ocean front with great balconies.
