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.

Not that nice

The bed was not very comfortable. The styling was very dated. The deck was not cleaned and there were bird droppings on the railing. Parking was difficult. I will not stay at this hotel again.

Comments on Experience

We only used the hotel for sleeping. No other facilities were used. The room was average and comfortable. Everything worked and room was cleaned everyday. Good location, on the beach front.

Ormond Morning

This place is not too bad for a lower cost place. Don't expect the Ritz. I asked for a non smoking room and the first room smelled of smoke. They switched us quickly. The "Breakfast Cafe" seemed to be a concession stand in a room. But the food was ok. Be warned for the Breakfast: CASH ONLY!

EXCELLENT FAMILY GETAWAY

We love our summer weekend. Staff at front desk was awesome as well the housekeeping. Rooms were clean and big. We had an extra person coming with us in the last minute and the staff was very flexible in giving us a rolling bed. Our children were happy at the pool and beach area. The hotel was full but we didn't have any problems in using accomodations before and after check in and check out. The boardwalk is around 5 min driving,but that is why stay in this place. Because you dont have to fight crowds in the beach to keep an eye on your children. I will sure return.
