The Shores Resort & Spa

Daytona Beach, Gold Coast Beaches

The hotel

The Shores Resort & Spa makes the most of its first-class setting on the white sands of Daytona Beach. Its oceanfront deck plays host to a pool, Jacuzzi, tiki bar, comfy cabanas, and fire cauldrons, where you can toast marshmallows for beachside s’mores as evening draws in. And the hotel’s restaurant, Azure, also exploits its location: you can enjoy its fine dining menu on its beachfront terrace. To give you the true Daytona Beach experience, this luxury spa hotel has also teamed up with recreation providers like Pure Life Surf School, giving you discounted surfing lessons, and LPGA International, offering special rates at their golf courses. And it’s paired up with The Oceans Racquet and Recreation Club, so you can enjoy facilities like tennis courts for free.

We stayed here and witnessed multiple members of the managerial level staff hugging patrons, shaking their hands and openly discussing how ridiculous the social distancing recommendations were as they mocked the seriousness of this virus. We locked ourselves in our room from 2 pm, ordering room service for dinner, until 7 am when we left. I will never stay here again and recommend no one does until this crisis is over. They are not taking our health and safety, or that of their employees, seriously. Read less

We were staying at the property and checked in on Thursday afternoon March 5th. One week later the place went from four Diamonds resort and spa to Zero Diamonds. The resort filled up with Biker Clubs. So many that the place was over run. Saw the Mongrols and others. We left early and cut our vacation short. The place did receive a face lift but still needs more updates. The wood in the elevators looks like it’s original. Restaurant food is just “ok”. Everything else was fine. There was also a big issue with the police coming to the hotel in the pre dawn hours Saturday for domestic violence complaint. Just not a place I would recommend staying during bike week. It’s a real mess - Read less

My son wanted to take surfing lessons while we were on vacation, Thankfully, The Shores has Ryan Ragan, Professional Surfer. Surfing since he was 11 years old, Ryan remains very enthusiastic. My son had a great time at surfing school. The professionalism and encouragement got my son up on that surfboard in no time. I would highly recommend The Shores and Ryan Ragan if anyone is interested in surfing lessons. Thanks, Ryan We only spent some time in the lobby and the pool area, but the place was immaculately clean and well maintained from what I saw, Read less

Perfect from beginning to end. Extremely friendly greeting, room ready early, what a nice surprise. Great service from everyone - spa, tiki bar, valet, restaurant and room service! We splurged on ourselves and booked the Terrace room so we could have the wrap around balcony, it was worth every penny! Beautiful room, large and bright and CLEAN,… Read more
