We've stayed at the RF many times...in March, and during the Christmas holidays. The beach location is wonderful, the heated pool and deck area are pleasant w/ plenty of chairs & towels, and the staff is courteous and efficient with our requests. Little staff turnover in our 7 years of frequent stays. Nearly all rooms overlook the beach/pool deck. We love using the outdoor grills and appreciate the nearby shops and groceries. The beach is great for walking and is in a nice area, as the RF is the most northern hotel on Daytona beach and adjacent to some upscale single family homes. Basketball,mini-golf & shuffleboard on the oceanfront deck. Wi-fi & computer in the lobby. Parking (a bit tight)is in an underground garage. Laundry is on alternate floors. Our only complaint is that the RF does not currently have a restaurant on site...even for breakfast. However, a short walk up the street, Billy's Tap Room is a wonderful restaurant specializing in grouper and we LOVE Gennovese's pizza (they deliver to the RF). We've enjoyed the Royal Floridian with friends and teens, but find it to be a friendly place as well when we travel alone.
