La Playa Resorts & Suites
Ranked #52 of 74 Hotels in Daytona Beach
Reviewed 2 October 2016

The staff was very nice and helpful specifically Tabitha who is the kind of person you would expect at a 5 star resort.With that said, the building is having structural issues. Had to force myself to get into the door the patios off the rooms were coming off the building, paint pealing the layout of the building itself is odd. They told me the hotel is being gutted soon and completely rebuilt over the next couple of years. I say wait until then to go.

This is NO resort. Roaches are EVERYWHERE in the rooms. In the dressers, kitchen cabinets, in the beds. EVERYWHERE. Do not stay here. The rooms are out dated and GROSS. We went with another couple and their room was the exact same way. It was a terrible stay and will never go back again. This qualifies as a motel NOT a resort.

Room Tip: Run away, do NOT stay here

The staff were great and the view and beach is wonderful! However, the rooms were pretty gross. We had two double suite rooms and they both were grimy. The kitchens were really dirty in the hard to reach spots and had very little in the way of plates, cookware, etc. One of the rooms had just 4 coffee cups for drinkware. The bottom of my kids feet were dirty from walking on the carpet. The pool area looks like it used to be pretty nice. Now, it's kind of shabby and a little dirty. This place needs some tlc. If we're back in the area, we'll find a different place to stay.

After reading the reviews I was very reluctant of going. I had called before arrival to request a higher floor. I was pleasantly surpised when Vinette checked us in. We received prompt and courteous service and a room on floor 7. The room was further back in the building with ocean view. The.following morning, I went to tbe front desk to request a room that was closer to the front of the building. Without hesitation Tabitha gave us the closest room to the front. The room was very clean and had a great view. She was extremely polite and professional. She always made us feel welcome. She also gave us great suggestions on where to eat. We stayed for 4 days. Yes. The hotel needs updates, but so do many hotels in the Daytona area. In regards to the elevators, the single elevator in the lobby was fast, clean and cool. The double elevators, I would stay away from. They are slow and crowed. Every single employee we met was courteous and helpful. We also enjoyed Camille in the breakfast room. Check out with Cadene was super fast. She was wonderful. Afyer check out it was time to leave. Suddenly we noticed that our big dirty laundry bag was missing. My husband left it sitting at the elevator. I went back to Tabitha to see what could be done. She stopped everything she was doing and dispatched housekeeping. They had already put our bag aside, and withing 5 minutes our bag was within our possession. I want to thank the wonderful staff for making our staying memorable and relaxing.
