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.

Great Price... Great Beach

The hotel was nothing spectacular, but it was clean and right on the beach. The staff was friendly and we definitely enjoyed the pool and fire pit. The only downside to this place was that the area was very run down. There were only a couple of place to walk to (I mean just a few)... everything else was a short drive.

Summer Vacation

My husband and I traveled to Ormond Beach and stayed in the Best Western for 4 nights. The front desk was very nice, and our room was average but clean. The only two complaints I have about my stay are one night the hotel owner had his high school reunion at the hotel. My husband and I came back from dinner around 9 o'clock only to find no parking for PAYING guest. We had to park at a realty office until 12 o'clock and then move our car back to the hotel. This was pretty annoying considereing most of the people at the reunion were not paying guest. Also, the air conditioning units are extremely loud and shut on and off every few minutes.

Perfect Getaway

I stayed at this hotel with my significant other for one night and had an absolutely amazing time. During the day we lounged by the wonderful pool area and soaked up the beautiful weather. The location of the hotel was great in that it was away from all the wildness of spring break and very relaxing.

Beach side in October

We stayed here while visiting elderly relatives. The location was ideal, the coupon for TGIFridays worked out great, plus it was close enough for an easy walk. The weather was fantastic, staff was friendly. We visited after school had started so the place was practically empty. One mistake on my part - ocean view and ocean front - do not mean the same thing. With the place having numerous vacancies it would have scored major points if the hotel put us in an "ocean front" room. Would stay again -

Room key was also a coupon for TGI Fridays Restaurant. In the same shopping plaza were a Starbucks and a great sub shop - Larrys Subs. Also had some small shops that were fun to browse around.

Good experience

Overall, very pleased. The rooms were nice. Hotel was in great location. Underground parking available. Great patio for lounging with an abundance of lounge chairs and steps leading right down to the beach. Be sure to ask for an Oceanfront room if you want to face the beach. OceanView rooms are on the side of the hotel. Did not use the restaurant as there was an IHOP within one block. Free internet access. And one gigantic outdoor pool!! Will definitely return.
