The Cove on Ormond Beach
Ranked #9 of 29 Hotels in Ormond Beach
Reviewed January 23, 2010

Our family including our children, ages 21, 18, and 14, had a nice stay at the Cove on Ormond Beach over the New Year's holiday. The staff was very friendly, but beware of check-in when a time share representative whisks you away to her desk without telling you what her "real" motive is.

This rep was standing and waiting for us right after we checked in. We thought she was part of the Cove on Ormond Beach staff so gladly went with her. She told us about the "free margarita party" and the "free day at the huge resort with indoor pools". Well these events are only free if you attend their time share tour and meeting. We were not interested!

Needless to say, that was not the best introduction to the place. After we escaped her clutches, we found our condo and it was very nice. Clean, well stocked with supplies and had a nice side view of the ocean. It was quiet and the beds are comfortable.

The only issue we had was with the "shadow ants" on the kitchen counter. The maintenance man came up promptly, while we were gone, and took care of them.

The other people staying at the resort were friendly and we met quite a few of them at the hot tub. Outdoor pool was cold but our kids got in anyway and even used the slide.

We would gladly return to the Cove on Ormond Beach. It was beautiful, right on the Atlantic, with good restaurants nearby.

We can't say enough about how nice our vacation was here! We were greeted at check in by Angelina, who was friendly and welcoming. It set the tone. Our room was beautiful, super clean and oceanfront. Everything was provided including soap for the dishwasher and washing machine, trash bags, plenty of towels, dishware, coffeemaker,utensils, electric broom, flat screen tv's, DVD player, and a boombox. We wanted for nothing. The staff is friendly and accomodating. This is more of a timeshare/condo set up and although daily housekeeping service is not provided, they do offer service upon request during the week. And anything you need is available at the front desk..new towels, kitchen towels, toilet paper...very easy. We loved the fact that we could operate on our own schedule without working around housekeeping. Regina, the general manager, is friendly and very approachable. She has made friendly service a priority. Even at the pool and beach, she has the "pool boys" constantly checking the pool,hot tub and bringing lounge chairs on the beach for guests. During the week the activities director grilled out for lunch and a masseuse was available for massages. The beach, pool, rooms, common areas...everything was immaculate. Great resort for families but also adults in the off season. Great location...many good restaurants nearby. It was relaxing and we would fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing. We loved it here and will definitely come back soon!!!!

We actually own at The Cove and have been coming here for a few years. There have been some wonderful upgrades accomplished here recently that include the building of the brand new South tower,and the renovation of the North tower.All units in the North tower have been nicely refurbished.Granite countertops,and much more.We were conveniently upgraded free of charge during this trip to a one BR.We usually get an efficiency because of the tremendous value pointwise.We are not there to lay around in the room!The outside deck area is just lovely with the tiny lazy river and the three story water slide.BBQ pits,free beach loungers and umbrellas and an indoor pool are just a few of the amenities.If you stay at the Cove you will not be disappointed.It's a perfect,quiet location that is far away from the tourist crowds and traps of Daytona Beach.Yet,if you want to wade into all of that excitement,it's just a 7-10 minute drive south.The friendly staff really rounds out the experience.Oh,there's also a small gym.Never used...so get out there!

We had an absolute blast at this resort! The pool was perfect for my 3 yr old daughter and me and the wife also had a good time on the slide and lazy river. There are many good places to eat within a short drive. I recommend Barnicles about a half mile away. The beach is very wide right in front of the resort and was very warm the first day then freezing afterward. Weird... We had a 2 bedroom condo in the North tower which was very nice and had 2 balconies. There was always plenty of convienient parking. I recommend flying into Orlando and getting a rental car its only about a 45 minute drive.

Booked into the Cove the week of 10/3/09-10/10/09. Unit 306 1BR. I've owned here for 9 years, and it's one of my favorite places. I own in the North Tower, the original part of the Cove.

It has been updated since my 2007 stay, with stone floors, marble countertops, and a flat panel TV. However, the uncarpeted floors are now noisy! You can hear the lovely dining rooms chairs being moved, and the pitter patter of feet!
The resort is well maintained and the staff courteous. They now want people to do the "owner update" i.e. sales pitch. I declined because I didn't like the gifts - I got calls every day!!!
