I have been spending family vacations at Sun Viking since I was 7 years old and while many of the resort traditions stay the same, their constant additions and improvements make it better every visit! Best resort for a fun family beach getaway and great for kids of all ages! All types of rooms available, however we have always booked rooms with a beach view in the tall building. Rooms are always clean and perfect in size with a nice kitchen. My kids have a great time on the waterslide, tanning by the pool, making frequent trips to the ocean and participating in games with the activity directors (especially Bingo and the water ballon toss.) You cannot beat this resort and it is worth every penny!

Stayed: July 2015, travelled with family

How amazing to read such a nice review from this loyal guest who has enjoyed family vacations at the Sun Viking Lodge since the age of 7 and now returns with their own kids . . . that statement is amazing and we humbly appreciate all the nice compliments in this review!

First we would like to thank you for saying that our hotel is the “best resort for family beach vacation anywhere!” As you mentioned, many of our traditions are still in place such as our free family activity program designed for all ages, with games, competitions, poolside bingo and of course, our 60-ft. waterslide tops the list!

We are glad that you find our rooms are “always clean and perfect in size with nice kitchens” and to say that “you cannot beat this resort and it is worth every penny!” As you know we are not an upscale hotel offering luxury services however, we are constantly making improvements to the property and our rooms, offering casual accommodations in a relaxed beachfront setting.

Thank you again for saying the Sun Vikings Lodge is the “best resort for family vacations” – we hope you and your family will have the opportunity to return soon, so we can welcome you back to your "home away from home!"

Nice, clean and friendly place to stay. We had a 4 year old with us this time and she really loved Miss Sherri the activity director. She did wonderful new projects that the kids really enjoyed. This was our 6th time staying at this hotel within the last 10 years.

The Sun Viking is so family friendly. There are so many activities for kids of all ages. It has the longest water slide in all of Daytona, too! It has an indoor and outdoor pool, a hot tub, and plenty of lounge chairs. It sits right on the beach, so the view from almost every room is awesome!

I would like to thank this guest for saying that the Sun Viking Lodge is “A great family-friendly place!”

We are happy that you and your family enjoyed our Free Activity Program offering, as you said, “so many activities for kids of all ages”.

Our guests agree with you, they too love our 60-foot waterslide, our indoor and outdoor pools and hot tub. It is true that our location is in a less congested area of the beach and we certainly agree, the view from our oceanfront rooms is awesome!

Thank you again for your kind review. We all look forward to welcoming you back to the Sun Viking Lodge . . . a place where you are always welcome!

The Sun Viking is family oriented, kid-friendly, clean, accommodating, has friendly staff, openly welcomes suggestions from guests, and is all around a GREAT place to stay! As a nearly 30-year veteran of staying at the Sun Viking, I highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Houses across the street are exceptional for family stays
