Sunshine, sandcastles at Castillo Del Sol oceanfront in Ormond Beach
Appropriately named the “Sun Castle,” sun, sand and a breathtaking ocean are the main attractions at this Ormond Beach hotel. Several miles north of Daytona Beach, Ormond is quieter and less crowded, but still close to attractions and entertainment. Guests flock to the 23-mile beach for sunning and swimming. Nearby are golf courses, shopping, and a state park with fishing, kayaking and canoeing. The Daytona speedway is a short drive away. Within 85 miles are destinations such as Kennedy Space Center, Disney theme parks and Universal Studios.
Highlights
  • Oceanfront location
  • Convenient access to the Boardwalk Amusement Area and Pier, Ormond Scenic Loop & Trail, Ponce Inlet Lighthouse
  • Free high-speed wireless Internet access
  • Oceanfront pool
Rooms
The charming guest rooms at the Best Western Castillo Del Sol are housed in a yellow, seven-story structure just steps from the beach. Many have balconies with sweeping ocean views. Among the room features are pillowtop beds, satellite television and free high-speed wireless Internet access. For a special indulgence, reserve a suite or ocean view room with fully equipped kitchens, or an oceanfront efficiency with a DVD Player, kitchenette and dining area.
Features
The beach in front of the Best Western Castillo del Sol stretches for miles in both directions. Spend lazy days soaking up the sun while the kids build sandcastles and splash in the surf. The hard-packed sand is suited for bike riding, walking or jogging. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants and attractions. Go kayaking or fishing at nearby Tomoka State Park, or head to a local golf course. Less than five miles south is the Daytona Lagoon water park and Ocean Walk Shoppes, which boasts a 10-screen movie theater.

Quick birthday getaway

We went for the first time for a quick birthday get away. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The weather did not allow us to enjoy the pool. So we watched the seagulls enjoy bathing in the pool for us. The hot breakfast is ok....nothing to rave about.... But for the savings and the ocean front view balcony is worth it.

Girls getaway to Ormond Beach

This hotel was great! As a Best Western rewards member, I was able to get an upgrade to an oceanfront room once arriving. The staff was very welcoming! Hotel was in the best location in Ormond Beach - easily walkable to TGI Fridays, Dunkin Donuts, Walgreens, CVS, Starbucks, and Stonewood Grille. Nice getting 20 off TGI Fridays as a hotel guest, too. Beach was beautiful for walking, deck area on property was spacious. Breakfast was fine - not as great as some Best Western hotels, but for a free breakfast there were many options. Only complaint was large amount of pigeons on balcony near ours after the sunset - noticed only on higher balconies (we were on 6th floor). Room was very clean and much larger than expected (with a full kitchen) and a quiet area of Ormond Beach which was nice. We would recommend and hope to return!

Nice room

Computers were down had to wait for check in, should have upgraded our room to beach front instead of view. Ice makers did not work well. Pool water was very cool no afternoon sun could use heater and or hot tub. Room was big and clean. Probably will not book here again there are many places that have more going on.

Best Western Ormand Beach, Florida

We stayed during the early part of October, just before the bikeathon. We had a pleasant stay. They kept the room clean, gave us extra coffee, and had a great breakfast bar. There was no microwave, we really needed one.

Stairs

Very busy hotel with the Labor Day weekend. The ice machines were overwhelmed with so many guests filling coolers to take to the beach, but the one on the 7th floor continued to work. You could hear the ice being taken out even up to about 3AM one night! Room staff, and hotel personnel were all rated excellent....they did their best to make things right. Unfortunately one of the two elevators broke down several times, making for a long trek up and down 7 flights. Fabulous views, great deck and pool area, even if a large part of the deck was taken up by a very large group who set up a tent, games, and commandeered a couple of the available picnic tables. Overall, an enjoyable holiday weekend, even if the hotel was packed to the max.
