  • The Total Daytona Beach Experience: No-Frills, Not Fancy, Not Awful - A True Blue Collar Resort

    "Daytona Beach is a pretty no-frills vacation destination and The Americano Resort is quintessentially Daytona Beach. The majority of guests on any given week will be timeshare owners, many of whom were sold the dream of "owning" a piece of beautiful beachfront property 30 years ago. This is the case with my parents. That's not a bad thing! The other guests are friendly and there's a familial feeling. Because everyone takes ownership, there's a welcoming pride in their conversations with guests. The one downfall to staying in a majority timeshare resort is that there's little effort made to "sell" anymore. It's been 15 years since I last vacationed with my family at this resort and this year, I had a spouse and toddler to bring along, making the experience very different from the experience of family vacations at the Americano in my teen years. That said, not much has really changed with the resort. It still pretty much looks the same. The rooms don't appear to have been updated. The game room is gone. They added onsite laundry. There's a kid's center in the basement with dirty toddler toys and the filthiest sofa I've ever seen. While the other guests are friendly, the front desk staff are far from cordial. Check-in took almost an hour. The manager, (whose name eludes me), is really sweet. Everyone else acted like our mere presence was annoying. The biggest exception has always been housekeeping. The housekeeping staff has always been the most helpful crew onsite. Make sure to go to an ATM before you check out because you're going to want to tip those guys BIG TIME. Also, go to the ATM to get cash so you can get some mediocre coffee and a pastry in the "cafe" in the lobby. It's cash only and you can't charge it to your room. How high-tech is that? My mother says they're going to put in a Starbucks in that cafe area. Right. The "bar" on the pool deck is a joke. Drinks are WAY over-priced, under-poured, and the bartender was a mess. Look, this resort SITS ON THE BEACH. Walk down some steps and you're in sand. That proximity to the beach at these rates is really unusual, outside of rat-infested motels. THIS IS NOT A RAT INFESTED MOTEL. It's clean, there are two nice pools and a gym, the rooms are a decent size and have full kitchens, and the majority of the staff wants to see you enjoy your vacation. It's definitely not a "resort", if you're accustomed to Hilton or Wyndham, but I'll come back because it's not awful and my parents will be there."

  • Great Place...Great Location

    "I was looking for a last minute getaway from my everyday hectic schedule. I figured I would spend the weekend in Daytona to visit the grand opening of the new Tanger Outlet stores in Daytona Beach. This condo was just perfect. My wife and I really enjoyed the rear parking lot near the unit. Make unloading of luggage and groceries a breeze. The unit is stone throw to the pool to sit in the sun with a book...but the best part was the quick easy access to the beach. Getting up early, making a pot of coffee and strolling the beach with sunrise was well worth it. One could never get tired of seeing the sunrise!!!! Saturday was spent all day shopping at the new outlets...Great place and a must visit in the future. After our all day shopping spree, went returned to the condo to make dinner. The full kitchen in this unit eliminates the need to go out like many other units I have been to before..(more money to shop with!!!_) Following dinner, you just open the door and basically step on the beach for an evening stroll. Then to finish the evening with a nightcap on the porch while listening to the waves... The condo may be small, but yet it is quaint and has just everything you need to get away... While our trip may have been short, it was definitely worth it and we will be back!!! Thank you to the owners for sharing your lovely home. ."
