“Surprising for a small property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We own a Time Share in another area but were able to vacation here also. The property is small but extremely clean and efficient; possibly just refurnished. Carpet was new throughout, walls like new. Linens were so much more than expected in this mid level hotel. Lobby was very upscale and appropriate for the area. Check in was almost immediate when we arrived.

Our first room was a hotel room with small kitchen adequately supplied with dishes, etc.. Bath room was roomy. The second room we had was a huge two bedroom with living room and full kitchen and two balconies. It would be easy to spend a month in this unit.

A small bar grill was on site and had great sandwiches and good drinks.

The pool area was just steps away with an abundance of new lounges. A few more steps and you were on the beach. Two grills were on this level and appeared to be new. Tables with umbrellas were also provided nearby.

The staff were among the best we have ever encountered. Just seem to love their jobs.

Room Tip: The two bedroom 302 was an end room and very quiet. Had a great beach view. Ask for a beach view.

I booked this room through Choice hotels and was pleasantly surprised that they are partnered with Bluegreen. My parents are Bluegreen owners and this property certainly lived up to my expectations. We had a King Efficiency room with an oceanfront view. It was truly great and everything in the hotel was convenient. They even had underground parking so our car wasn't out in the salt air. We'll definitely return!

Room Tip: Definitely request Ocean front.

We stayed here Aug 31st thru Sept 7 2013. This was our first time using our RCI Timeshare and we enjoyed our stay. The staff was awesome and our room was nice and clean. The view from our balcony was beautiful. There are great restaurants near by I recommend Riptides, Hulls Seafood Restaurant, and Charlie Horse. Also, a few miles away from the Boardwalk and Pier which we enjoyed as well. We really liked the fact that there is a life guard tower located in front of the property. Parrots lounge located in the lobby was a nice place to have a drink and relax after a long day on the beach. The only complaint we had was no wifi in the rooms, we had to go to the lobby. We would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here with my sister and two nieces the end of August. We loved it!! The staff was wonderful, and there was always something planned to do everyday with the activities in the hotel lobby!! We woke up early every morning just to watch the beautiful sunrise, and take a stroll on the beach. The Parrots lounge in the lobby was great, we didn't eat anything, but the drinks were very good. The hotel had a nice pool and was kept very clean. The only complaint we had, was the wifi service was only available on the first floor!! We were told they were taking care of this and would have wifi on all floors very soon. We would definitely stay here again!!!!! :)

This was my second time staying at Casa Del Mar. I really like this hotel. It has less frills than other places but more charm. The employees are helpful and nice. The pool is great and the location is amazing. It is right on the beach and is close to many good restaurants. I think Ormond Beach is an underrated section of Florida. It is lively without being overly crowded. The room was not updated but was clean and quiet. Great balcony.The main office has free newspapers and free tea/coffee in the morning. There is a restaurant on site and activities for children. There is also a bar right next to the pool. There is a safe in the room, ask for the key at the desk when checking in. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a room that looks out on the beach!

Stayed a week as an RCI exchange. Great location right on the beach which is super wide and stretches for miles. In fact, we walked to Daytona Beach one day, 7 miles RT. Easy to get to St. Augustine on the freeway. Rooms were a little dated, NO counter space in the kitchen and the bathroom/closet layout was weird! Great pool area, grilled out on their patio a couple times.

Enjoyed our stay. Wonderful sunrise every morning. Beds very comfortable. Room very clean and quiet (you don't hear other guests when in your room!). Pool area kept very clean. Kitchen had everything we needed. Easy access to beach & pool. Had 2 kids with us and spent almost every day at beach & pool. Great restaurants nearby. Daytona & St Augustine are very close.

Lobby, bar, & resort scheduled activities could use some help.

Would definitely return.
