Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham Ocean Walk Daytona Beach
My family and I (wife and 4 children) have been visiting Daytona Beach now for about 20 years and have been looking for the perfect vacation place to stay. We may have found it. Check in was great, no lines, bell hop was very friendly. I had read about the "B" rooms and found out why people complained. We rented a 2 bedroom lockout which uses one of these b units, and it worked out fabulous for us. The kids stayed in their own unit and gave us some privacy. The rooms were large and mostly well kept, and some maintenance issues were dealt with quickly.
The view was great, the pool clean and clear. My little one (5) loved the lazy river. One complaint is that the drinks served at the pool were very small and very expensive! While I believe that the resort is a little pricey, I guess you get what you pay for. We will go back next year.
I own a timeshare at Ocean Walk Resort. The first time I used it was in December 2002. Although I had a few problems, I enjoyed myself enough to return this past June. Both times, I had an Oceanfront suite. The view was spectacular. I was up every morning watching the sunrise. By 11 AM, I was poolside or at the beach. The staff is very courteous & will go out of their way to accomodate you. I agree with other reviewers about the "B" units. If I'm going to the beach, I want to see the beach, not a hallway. When I bought, I was told that all rooms were oceanfront. Obviously I was misled on that point. I know though, to request an "A" unit when booking. The only complaint I have is that the windows do not have any screens on them. It was cool enough at night to be able to sleep with just the fan on & the windows open, but I was unable to do that because little gnats and mosquitos made their way into my room. Also, the windows open up fully and there are no saftey bars on them which means that a precocious child could fall out. I've addressed this with them twice, but so far there have been no changes made.
Don't Go If You Have a B Unit
I read the negative comments about the "B" units prior to arriving in Daytona. When I arrived, I was assigned a "B" unit. I should have refused to check in, but I thought ..how bad could a "B" unit really be, this is a Fairfield resort. My vacation was thoroughly RUINED. I did not go to Daytona Beach to have windows that opened out into the hallway. I couldn't even open the blinds and get sunlight unless I wanted everyone looking in. I would have been happier staying at a $30.00/night motel unit than to stay in this "B" unit. Something I learned from a Fairfield rep there - don't EVER get a "B" unit because it's the 1 bedroom from a lockoff. On the weekends, I waited more than 10 minutes for the elevators. It was better during the day. I will NEVER go back to this resort.
OK if you have an Ocean View/Front
Sme rooms over look the hall. The kichen fittings are cheap and already faling apart. The balcony has rough concrete. OK as a hotel stay. Construction is noisy. Wndows not double glazed so we could hear musc from bar until 2.00am. Pool is warm, people friendly Beach nice.
Don't go if you have a "B" unit
Cancel your trip or change your reservation if you are in a "B" unit. Before you depart on your trip to the Ocean Walk Resort in Daytona Beach call them and confirm you DO NOT have a "B" unit. The windows in B units look into the hallway and have no natural light. The rooms should not be rented. The way they are designed is a disaster. Absolutely horrible. They are appointed nicely, but it's hard to appreciate the decor when you are in a dark 11th floor basement! We hated the room so much we checked out early. On the positive side, the facility is nice and the staff was very friendly even though they could not or would not upgrade our room. The "survey" they want you to fill out is another sales pitch. We smiled for an hour, took our Disney pass and left. Of course they promise the Disney pass then try not to give it to you. Typical.
Couldn't have been better.
Our stay was delightful. From check in to check out. Everything you could ask for and then some. The new Movie comples had the newest releases and the Starbucks was as good as always. We'll go back every year.
My wife and I and a couple of friends were guests on the week of Aug. 11 - 18. We were treated like royalty the entire week. We stayed in a suite on the 19th floor that was decorated with bright, colorful walls that made gave us a cheerful attitude. We will definitely be visiting again. Part of the resort was under construction and we can't wait to see what the finished product will be. I recommend it to anyone staying in Daytona Beach.
Wonderful stay! Look forward to doing it again soon!
My family and I stayed at the Ocean Walk Resort this past June. We had stayed at the Adam's Mark Resort a couple of summers before and thought that that reosrt was the best Daytona had to offer...I am here to say that I was *completely wrong* about that assumption.
From the moment we arrived at Ocean Walk, we were greeted with smiles and friendly faces from the staff. Check-in was a breeze. When we entered our condo, we were taken away: my wife and I thought we had entered heaven on Daytona Beach.
Our condo was loaded with every detail from home you can imagine: washer & dryer, full-size refrigerator, sleeper sofa, tv/vcr combo, and a beautiful view of the ocean. Our two children (ages seven and 10) thoroughly enjoyed themselves in the Lazy River and in the Activities Room. Room service was prompt, and front desk handled a couple of our room calls (one for extra towels and another for extra laundry detergent) within a matter of minutes.
Our stay was only for a few days, but the resort left a lasting (and wonderful!) impression on us all. We booked a vacation for next summer before we returned home! If you want the best resort in Daytona Beach, stay at Ocean Walk.
Ocean Walk Vacation
We were guests in the new Ocean Walk Resort at Daytona Beach this past April. I thought it was great. We had a two bedroom oceanview unit on the 19th floor, which overlooked the Amphitheatre. The unit was decorated beautifully in bright cheerful colors. I have no complaints whatsoever. They were still under construction at that time and we're looking forward to seeing what they've accomplished when we go back there in November.
Don't be surprised if your ocean front room has a lovely view of the hall like ours. The elevators are crowded and the parking garage was a hassle. The threshold to your room is elevated so you trip when you walk into your room. Get ready to be bombarded with sales pitches during your stay. I would not stay here again.
