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.

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.

OK

When we arrived which was well after midnight, there was a problem, both with the reservation as well as the hotel computer. It took approx. 20 mins or more to get things straightened out. When we got to the room, it was not made up. We had to go back to the desk for them to find us another room which took another 20 mins. We also told them we did not want a 5th floor room because the elevator smelled so horrible. Even though we were exhausted, we chose to carry our belongings and use the stairs. The whole experience was a disaster and we were exhausted by the time we got to bed!

Excellent Hotel

My husband and I stayed here for 6 days and found the entire staff from maintenance to cleaning to front desk to be most helpful and friendly. Everyone we encountered went out of their way to accommodate us. The underground parking was an unexpected amentity. The complimentary breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Will definitely stay here again when we visit Daytona.

Ormond Beach vacation

Hotel needs to be renovated. Mattresses poor and difficult to sleep. View of the ocean was the best part of the stay. Easy access to the beach. Continental breakfast was helpful on a budget. Staff were friendly.

Vacation

Overall a good exp. Room could have been cleaner & tub should have been cleaned daily. Pigeon droppings were on patio & chairs, not good. Love bugs were a nuisance but it was the season. Free breakfast was not good. No micro. to heat pastry. Great view of ocean! Good value for room.

Mini vaca

The only reason I did not leave to look for another hotel was our staying there only one night and having limited time. Our front door did not close properly, had to force it shut. The balcony door lock did not work. The room had an over all feel of not being clean. I was not happy. There was a frito chip on the bathroom floor and a pool of water the the corner. The bed skirts were very messily put on. All of this contributed to my questioning how well the room was cleaned.
