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 worked out and the fitness center had state of the art equipment. Traveled to St. Augustine one day- 60 miles . well worth the trip. We will be back. Read less

Had a wonderful weekend ! Place was clean, service was right on, food was great. Chef Louie did an awesome job on the wife's omelet!! Location is great as there was not a crazy beach crowd. Traffic on the beach was light and safe. Chairs and umbrellas were abundant and cheap. Very nice pool and deck. Close to Ponce Inlet and the lighthouse.

Would have given it 5 stars if the alcohol prices weren't so out of hand. We have been to a lot of resorts and by far, this rates at the top of alcohol prices. If you don't drink,,,,then you can consider this a 5 star. At the tiki bar, average price is $10. to $11. a drink. Had dinner at the restaurant and paid $12. for a cosmo. Glass of wine… Read more

If you don't drink,,,,then you can consider this a 5 star. At the tiki bar, average price is $10. to $11. a drink. Had dinner at the restaurant and paid $12. for a cosmo. Glass of wine averaged 10. to 11. I had the filet mignon with a oscar topper and paid $48. Husband had salad and lobster bisque, our meal was around $110. with tip. My steak was not cooked as I wanted Med. rare and it was med. well. The manager came over and gave us a discount on my steak. Was happy with the attention he gave us. We decided to try it again the following night and of course I did the steak oscar again. After explaining to our waiter that the night before my steak was not as I ordered and decided to try again, he said, "I will make sure." Well it was perfect. We thought our bed was a little firm for what we are use to, but our room was nice. We had a CABANA KING ROOM and it was very nice. Would definitely recommend it for someone who wants to be right by the pool and tiki bar. Sat out on our cabana and watch football on the outside TV in our cabana. Wifi was excellent. Read less

This place was okay. For the price not up to par. There are good features as well, good food, good drinks, clean exterior and beachfront access. Our room however was clearly not vacuumed, several different unidentifiable pills scattered in room which was a danger to our small family members. Bugs, screws and a few other things.

Our room however was clearly not vacuumed, several different unidentifiable pills scattered in room which was a danger to our small family members. Bugs, screws and a few other things. Pillow was mascara littered so clearly not clean. When I called to complain they did refund the resort fee of $21 which was not good enough, offered to clean the room or allow us to change rooms. We chose to have the room cleaned, like it should have been. Upon meeting other guests we were told parallel stories. Seems housekeeping is a problem regularly here. Otherwise staff was mostly friendly. Location was superb. Read less

Nice big room, the food was very good. Louie the omelet chef was great. The fire pits and S'mores are a nice touch and bring the guests together in the evening. Nice, friendly guests and staff. It does not seem like the resort fee is necessary with the rate we paid and the parking fee is a bit high.
