“Nice Property Right on the Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2009

We enjoyed our week-long stay at this property. We enjoyed the accommodations and the ocean views. The large swimming pool was not heated, so very few people swam outside all week. The outside pool was freezing cold! The hot tubs were for those 18 years and older, but weren't supervised well, so children used them every day. The beach was beautiful and there was always something fun going on around the outside pool. The place isn't fancy, but it is clean, spacious and comfortable in all rooms.

Staff
The staff at the Americano are the best. They are very customer service oriented and what to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Check-in was quick and painless. They had my reservation and even accommodated me with an ocean view room.

The Hotel
This is not a 5 star facility so if that's what you are looking for you may want to reconsider; however, the lobby area is nicely decorated. There is Internet access in the lobby area. I thought the bathrooms were a little dated, but they were functional. The rooms were nice and large. I had a two bedroom which had 1 large fridge with a freezer. The layout was similar to having two connecting rooms, which made it convenient so that guests in the other section has access to their own fridge, microwave, bathroom, and towels. There were three (3) televisions, one in each bedroom and one in the sitting area that was equipped with a sofa and chair. The bed was very comfortable (both king size) and the pillows were the best I'd ever used while away from home. The pool goes from 3ft to 10ft with plenty of pool chairs. There is a deck where you can sit down and look out on the ocean. To access the beach, you just punch in a code. This helps to prevent those who are not hotel patrons from using the hotels facilities. This made me feel very safe. Also, you can sit on the deck and look out into the ocean. This was especially relaxing for me. The hotel has a small arcade room where you can play arcades or shoot pool.

Food
This hotel does not have a full service resturant. There is a Bistro on site where you can get a quick breakfast sandwich, cereal, water, candy, chips, soda, and souvenirs. The staff in the Bistro was very helpful and didn’t mind answering questions. The Bistro closes fairly early (3pm) then the Bar takes over. You are still able to order a little something to eat at this time if you wish. If you go down Atlantic Blvd (by bus its about a 10 minute ride) there are several restuarants such as TGIF, Ruby Tuesday's, McDonalds, and Red Lobster. Ordering in is expensive. A small cheese pizza and an order or wings from Papa John's is $20. I did not have access to a car while I was there and felt a bit handicapped in terms of being able to get around. However, there is a bus stop in front of the hotel. Most buses run on a 30mintue to 1 hour schdule so be prepared. If you want to be able to get around the city, it's more convenient to have your own transportation. If I went back to the Americano, I would be sure to rent a car.

Overall, it was a comfortable place to stay.

We have enjoyed several vacations at this resort. This stay we found a focus on the RCI points exchange program. Being a timeshare owner, not everyone is interested in this program. Understand that and listen to your guest/owner. Good customer service has always been a top priority with this resort and didn't find that this visit with the current sales staff. Otherwise, things were great, as usual.

We are timeshare owners and we exchanged to the Americano through Interval. I was a bit apprenhensive as some of the reviews I had read were on the negative side.
I took a chance and booked and was very glad I did. The staff were very accommodating and went out of their way for the guests.Check-in went very quickly. In fact ,we arrived early and were allowed to check in early. The property is very nice, we stayed in the Tomac which consisted of 2 Bd rooms,2 full baths full kitchen and living area with private entrances. We had ocean views from each bedroom. The furnishings were in good condition and everything was clean and tastefully decorated. There was a king, queen and sofa bed and 3 TV's The living area had a sink, microwave, and small refrig. You can exchange your towels daily, pool towels also. The pool is the largest on Daytona Beach and goes from 3ft to 10 ft.,deep, there is a kiddie pool with a waterfall as well.
There are plenty of lounge chairs, tables and shade. The indoor
pool is used for water aerobics every day.
There are hottubs inside and outside and a very large gym.
There is a Bistro that serves drinks and a variety of food items,
You can rent DVD's ,and the resort provides many activities such as Bingo and Karoke. Grills are available for guest use. A computer is on the 1st floor and internet access is free.
One thing I missed was a balcony which they don't have. You also have to furnish your own paper towels and coffee filters.
We had a fabulous time and made alot of new friends.

Went for our honeymoon on a gift certificate. Most people staying have timeshares but it was great. They were in the process of upgrading the rooms with Flat Screen HDTV. It is on the beach with a beautiful view especially at night. We seen dolphins out side of windows. They have an indoor and outdoor pool, fitness room, indoor and outdoor whirlpool, gameroom, bar, cafe, internet service, security, security codes for all doors, beach access, bbq grills. Everything and anything that you need they have. We decide to purchase a timeshare there too. Go and see for yourself.

I would like to first off by saying that everything people had to say about the staff are true. They are very helpful and will do whatever they can to make your stay enjoyable. But this is an old property and appears to be a converted hotel. The rooms are adequate but outdated. The furniture was not comfortable but was in good condition. The room had a good view of the beach. Speaking of the beach this timeshare is a little further down than the action which could be a good thing. There is much less traffic than further south, but there were no beach rentals (chairs, etc.) unlike further south. There is a small grill in the lobby with typical grill fare, but you would be better off cooking in your room. There is a small bar and they do have drink specials. The exercise room looks better in the pictures than it did in person. It is fairly small with a few machines and there were kids playing on them a lot of the time. There is an indoor pool and two hot tubs. The outdoor pool is very impressive. There is quite a bit of seating and sunbathing area. It was never full the whole time we were there. Unfortunately the way they built the wall around the pool area you cannot see the beach very well.
Check out was kind of a hassle. There were about two hundred people leaving and there was only one poor employee on the desk. She was wonderful and worked her tail off, but it did take some time to get out.

Our stay at the Americano was excellent. We had our wedding there on 06/12/08. The Americano helped us out every way possbile to help make our wedding memorable. I want to say "Thank you" to the staff at Americano for all their help. They assisted with everything that we needed. Our reception was held in the sales office and it was beautiful. I also want to "Thank You" to Georgette for all of her help and giving us the opportunity to share this speacial moment at the Americano. We really appreciate everything you and your staff did for us. Americano is a great place to stay. We enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back next year. Once again " Thanks again" for everything. It really meant alot to us and our families.
