“Great area, nice resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed here for Spring break. We had a two bedroom lockout unit. First, the view from the master bedroom and living room balcony is amazing- we slept every night to the sounds of the Atlantic ocean. The location of this resort is by far the biggest attraction!

Unfortunately, Florida was experiencing a cold temperature streak this week, but we still had a great time. The hot tub and pool are a bit on the small side, but had the weather been warmer, we would've been on the beach anyway. In my opinion, Ormond Beach is a gem of a travel spot as it sits just North of the busier Daytona Beach area. Yes, we did sit through a timeshare sales pitch, but we were curious about their offering. I'd recommend this place to families and couples. We love Ormond Beach and we'll be back soon....

Room Tip: Drive through Tomoka park to see the beautiful homes along A1A. Walk on the boardwalk..get a massag...

I was shceduled to stay in this Time Share property through a package they offered me. However let me tell you they not only did not have a 1 bedroom villa when I arrived with family and food to cook in the Kitchen they had offered me in the package. Well they told me kthey had no room for me at there resort and wanted to out me at a sub par hotel in Daytona Beach. Wee I refused and drove home...They have promissed to refund my money but they sure did ruin our Spring Break...

We stayed there for Spring Break and we were pleasantly surprised. I had never been to Ormand Beach before but it close to the interstate and still has a small town feel. This resort is right on the beach and from our condo windows we could see nothing but water, that's how close you are. The north building is older, but has been completely remodeled and all rooms are beachfront. The south building is new but not all units are facing the beach. My granddaughter met several children her own age and stayed in the pool all 5 days! I don't like seeing cats and redneck trucks on the beach, but that's what they do here. The resort had several activities planned and if that isn't enough, you are pretty close to Daytona, St Augustine, and even Orlando. We had an Interval International getaway- a great deal!

We visited here in the Spring Break period, large clean operation, friendly people, inside pool and outside too with a large jacuzzi; good overview of the beach area, rooms tip top , parking and location very good - busy, but not too busy.
Will return definitely!! Various things for the children to do outside, plus a BBQ!

Room Tip: Beach side is the best side!

We stayed 2 nights here last week. Weather was a little cool, but we were able to enjoy the great view, lovely beach and facilities. The tiki bar at the pool was a great touch. We had a 2 bedroom condo on the 7th floor which offered amazing view. The beach was great for walking. We used both the indoor and the outdoor pools and hot tubs and both were great. The condo unit it itself had everything we could ever need. There is also coin laundry available. The resort offers various daily activities such as aquafit, shuffle board, mini putt tournaments and bingo. We were not contacted by anyone about timeshare sales. Because it was the start of bike week, there was some late night noise in the second bedroom which faced the street,but that was to be expected. We very much enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Higher floors offer a great view

Facility is decent, Rooms in the older building needed refurbishing. The ocean view is nice and the location in Ormond Beach is great - fewer people. Air conditioner is on balcony and when running you can forget a conversation. Outdoor pool is great and well kept. The indoor pool and spa is about the size of a large suite and immediately as you walk in the main doors. You are on display. Biggest issue is that this is a timeshare and if you have booked without being there for a freebie expect a daily or sometimes twice a day call to come see the presentation for $100 or a free night. By the end of our stay we kept saying no, they were up to $100 and a free three day weekend. We passed. I guess you can call cleaning your room and being continually asked to see a presentation a resort. We don't. Great location, but not a place to return unless you spend the money during the presentation and get locked in.

Room Tip: Book at a real resort!

Visited the Royal Floridian, a Spinnaker Property, on a promotional invitation. It was well worth the visit. Well staffed, friendly, helpful. Many daily activities for all ages. Perfect location, on the beach, many businesses w/in walking distance. Would love to revisit this resort.

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean!!!
