Amazing Staff

The staff is amazing!! Everyone is very nice. Room service was quick and not terribly expensive for the area. The view was amazing and we pretty much had the beach to ourselves. It was very clean and smelled great! Hand sanitizer available. I can't wait to return.

FANTASTIC long weekend

Melyssa P, Orlando, Florida (11/13/20)

Honestly we were nervous about traveling right now with Covid but it was the best vacation we've had in a very long time! The resort AND the spa were absolutely immaculate so we weren't worried about cleanliness and safety once we arrived and saw all the steps the staff was taking to keep the guests safe. We had a minor problem with our tv but we weren't really watching it so we just let it go. Our room, King, oceanfront, jacuzzi was EXTRAORDINARY and really couldn't have been any better. We started chatting with a server at the pool named Brett and he was delightful which made our day! The front desk staff was extremely kind and never uttered the phrase "I don't know" but instead "I'll find out for you" which made a difference and there was a young "bellhop" (I think that's the right word) that was friendly and made us feel very welcome! We are planning on coming back in a few months and then possibly ever few months after that, I believe it will be our new family tradition!!! The world is crazy right now but this stay was the recharge we desperately needed and The Plaza Resort and Spa lived up to our expectations in every way. Thank you to the staff!!! 

Amazing,Beautiful, so much history-Excellent Stay

I live in Daytona Beach Shores, moved here 2 years ago from Illinois but I wanted an ocean front couple day break away from Covid life and to REALLY be able to relax from the stress it has brought to our life’s. Perfect choice! Lovely & staff so accommodating. Pool, resturant choices, rental bikes, beach out your door, you don’t have to leave this amazing place. My view - awesome! Best thing for me was the beautiful Oceans Water spa in the lower level, a full service spa for guests, tourists and Locals like me -I had an amazing 50 minute massage by David, he has great qualifications and so professional and really listened to my needs- best ever- my shoulder and hips -he has magic hands and moved muscles I forgot I had! Then I had the basic mani/pedi by Adam. I love the color he helped me pick out for my skin color and needs - professional looking but fresh and versatile-Wow!! Oh, I started with about a hour de-stress time in the steam room and jacuzzi offered to me when I called by the wonderful Spa Manager , Michelle- perfect! Slept like a rock for the first time in months last night. Thanks to the whole staff! It is so nice to have a place like this in Daytona Beach that is very affordable. I left feeling so much better and will be back -(especially, at these Volusia County resident’s discounts!!) Will be passing this secret escape on to visiting friends and neighbors. See ya at the SPA!! Happy Traveler! They are very Covid equipped so you will feel very safe! BTW- did I tell you I❤️‘ed the SPA! Ha!

Weekend Getaway

MacnRoxy (11/14/20)

Had an awesome weekend away at the hotel. Staff was beyond friendly and helpful. View from our room was amazing and beautiful. Steps to the white sandy beaches of Daytona. Within walking distance of shops. Nice peaceful relaxing experience.

A great place to relax and chill out - walk the beach, drink wine on the balcony & use the spa.

Good: The beach view and access to the beach were wonderful. The spa was probably the best part of my stay - I had fabulous services and a relaxing afternoon enjoying what the spa had to offer.

Excellent staff, location, and amenities

My husband and I have stayed at the Plaza twice this year and we are looking forward to our next visit. All of the staff are friendly and willing to help. We always book an oceanside room on a higher floor for the view. The rooms are spacious and clean. Due to Covid, the kitchenettes are not equipped with the usual utensils and dinnerware, but it is available upon request. Also due to Covid, daily room cleaning is not available. We were given written instructions to leave our used linens and trash outside the door and they would be swapped for fresh linens, but fresh linens were never left. We had to call the desk each time, so that was kind of annoying.

*Who we liked*
1. Brandon - Upon arrival, Brandon was our concierge attendant. He quickly helped me get our bags to the room while my husband parked our truck and trailer. Brandon showed me the room and made sure to point out the very high threshold at the sliding door so that we didn't trip onto the patio. He even suggested some restaurants close by. Then he rushed to the parking lot at the opposite end of the property to make sure my husband was ok with parking.
2. Brett - we love Brett the bartender!! We spent several afternoons lounging at the pool and Brett was so much fun while also providing spectacular service. He would even deliver drinks right to the edge of the pool! We really got the feeling that he cared about his customers and made us feel right at home. We will be sure to look for him right away on our next trip.

*What we liked*
- RDIF bracelets instead of key cards! (no more misplacing my keycard!)
- easy to charge everything to your room
- no smoking anywhere except a designated area away from the pool
- No need to leave the Plaza if you just want to chill...poolside bar & cafe, restaurant & bar, lobby bar, pool, spa, gym, convenience store, onsite laundry, private beach access, basketball, cornhole, gas firepits, and free use of bikes, boogie boards and surf boards for 1 hour (you can rent them for longer)
- a very short walk to stores, bars, and restaurants
- pool towels supplied
- trailer parking
- designated motorcycle parking (bike week & biketoberfest)
- shampoo, conditioner, & shower gel dispensers in shower
- in-room safe for valuables
- bloody mary bar on friday & saturday
- fish tacos and bucket drinks at the pool cafe
- the staff put together a fun scavenger hunt for Biketoberfest that involved getting out into the community and different businesses

* What we didn't like *
- it was extremely difficult to hear/understand the front desk staff behind full plexiglass and face masks
- we were not told upfront that parking is an extra $13/day (the trailer was another $25/day)
- the bathrooms are very small
- the dresser drawers smelled a bit musty, like they had been cleaned and then closed while still wet
- we stayed on the 10th floor which was nicely decorated in the halls, but we ventured to the 14th floor which was like we went back in time! Definitely not as nice, although our family member's room was very nice.
- breakfast in the restaurant was extremely slow, although we were only 1 of 2 tables being served. The pancakes were dry as sand! The waitress was excellent and took them off our bill. The eggs benedict was delicious, but could have been warmer. We found a better breakfast place called Heffer's and went there every day thereafter for way better food at 1/2 the price.

We will definitely be back and are hopeful that the new owners make some great improvements!

Nice weekend getaway

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Plaza resort and spa for our 5 year anniversary and it was just what we needed. Everything was very nice and clean. We had a amazing view of the balcony and the pool service bar was awesome. The bartender Brett was amazing and made us feel welcome the entire weekend!
