Thank you for expressing your concerns to us. We do have Oceanfront and Oceanview rooms, though all of our Oceanfront Efficiency Rooms are Oceanfront. We are very sorry that you did not think the view was what you booked. We always ask that our guests immediately contact the Front Desk if they have any issue during their stay , so we can correct it as soon as possible. Our housekeeping team will also make sure to thoroughly air rooms out prior to guest arrival. We appreciate your feedback and hope you'll consider allowing us a chance to make this up to you.

Rooms aren't as nice as advertised. Was promised full on ocean-side view, ended up with a partial view on a diagonal. Elevator floors were constantly wet and nasty.

Great location for beach. Beds were comfy. Room was ok clean. Elevators are slow and appear to not work right. Stairwell was being painted so we had to take elevators. Always dirty too. AC above floor leaked onto our balcony. Neighbors were terribly loud. Not too much sound dampening here. Breakfast was disappointing. Bagels and yogurt. Our balcony door had a huge hole where it doesn’t meet the frame. Someone’s kid pooped on the pool. We never went in it. Place is dated and needs an update. Wasn’t terrible. I just expected more for what I paid. In a pinch I’d stay here again. Otherwise I’d do more research and pay more for a better stay.

Thank you for your positive rating of El Caribe Resort Daytona Beach! We regret any inconvenience caused by our elevator and it has since been updated with quicker, smoother mechanisms. Based on your rating, it sounds as if your stay was otherwise pleasant. We value your feedback and would love to host you again.

Would stay again & recommend IF new carpets

Pros: The location, view, and well kept pool areas.
Cons: Carpet in the rooms need to be replaced.
Location: We liked the location. The pier and boardwalk were just a short drive down the street. Restaurants, shops, and grocery stores were nearby also.
The location was good.. just a short drive to the pier and boardwalk of Daytona Beach, a grocery store was right across the street and there were a number of places to eat and souvenir shop. The view from our oceanfront efficiency room's balcony was wonderful and the outdoor pool areas (2) and picnic/grills area were well kept. The continental breakfast area was also well kept but small and therefore congested due to there being so many guests at the hotel. The room appeared to have really nice new flooring in the bathroom area and kitchen and our efficiency room was very clean and came with everything necessary in the kitchen as well as hair dryer, iron, ironing board,. and an alarm clock radio that was also a recharging station for smartphones and tablets which came in handy. Things however that we didn't like: The hotel had renovations going on so construction equipment & workers blocked part of the parking area. The elevator at our tower was being worked on one time during our 2 day stay to where we had to take the bags of groceries that we were loaded up with outside with us to the pool area and wait until the service of the elevator was completed 15 to 20 minutes later.. or else walk 6 floors of stairs with groceries. What bothered me the most was the condition of the carpet in our room. It looked stained and dirty.. definitely needing to be replaced. I would stay here again however once renovations are completed and IF the carpets were replaced.

Dear Patricia, Thank you for being our guest and for letting us know how we can better serve you. It's nice to know that you enjoyed our ideal location, beautiful views, and well-maintained pool areas; however, we apologize if our carpet wasn't to your preference. Housekeeping has been notified of the cleanliness you observed and your remarks will be internally discussed to explore how improvements can be made. We do have painting in progress as well as upgrades being made to the exterior of our building, though we expect work to be completed shortly. We appreciate your insightful review and look forward to providing you with an exceptional experience next time.
