  • 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 with a rocky start

    "We did not receive our check-in information prior to arrival, and it took close to an hour to get ahold of the owner. Once we received the check-in information, the week went great. It was comfortable and provided a great amount of space for my family. Wonderful view from the balcony!! I would definitely rent the condo again but would ask about the specific check-in procedures ahead of time. This was our first time renting a condo."

  • Quaint, Cute & Quite little Room #519

    "I booked this room at Sea Dip Beach Resort with Rick; Room #519. We came to the area for the Turkey Run. The hotel itself is pretty old, you can see that around the property. I am really glad that we (myself, my husband and our daughter who is 7 years old) stayed in Rick's room here. We stayed Wednesday, Nov. 23-27 of 2016. Upon arrival we went to the check-in area, got the keys to the room. We found our way to the elevator, went up to their 5th floor; found our room with no problems. Upon entry the room did have a musty/old smell but I sprayed room freshener to take care of that. The room itself was pretty comfy. The kitchen area was full of any and everything one might need to make meals but we were on vacation, no cooking for us! We only used the fridge for drinks. The room was Very Clean. The bed was kind'a hard, but I like a hard mattress. The sheets smelled clean, and we checked the bed for bed bugs, none were to be found!! A Great Plus!! The bathroom was small, but it was just right for us. The water pressure was just right and there was good hot water with every shower! There were towels, hand towels and wash clothes left for us, and they smelled fresh and clean! I'm picky with my things being fresh and clean! The only thing we did notice was the carpet was dirty, but honestly I think it just needs completely replaced. We just made sure we kept socks or flip flops on. The balcony area is Very Big! That was a Huge Plus for me, and plus it looked straight out to the ocean!! I loved sitting out there at night. (just note: there is no outside light for the balcony; that was okay by us though). Just to hear the ocean waves at night was enough for me! You could tell that the couch is old, and note: the pull out bed isn't comfortable at all. We had brought extra blankets for my daughter so we piled them up and made it comfy for her each night. She said she slept fine each night. On the property there are 2 pools, one indoor and one outdoor; we only got to swim in the indoor one because the outdoor one was too cold. We did enjoy being right on the beach; we went to the ocean everyday!! It was a little too cold to go swimming in the ocean. We Really did enjoy our stay here!! No it's not the Ritz or anything fancy but it was a Great place to stay on a Budget for just sleeping and bathing because during the daytime we were venturing out. I would recommend staying in Rick's room, and Yes!! I'm sure we will be booking with him again!! Thanks Rick!! :)"
