Hammock Beach Resort
Travel Blogs from Palm Coast
Ginn Hammock Beach was a wonderful property. Not just because my family was able to join me (which was definitely a highlight), but because the staff was nice enough to upgrade us into a 3 bedroom villa. With the extra bedroom, David also invited his folks up for a couple of nights. The property had a private beach as well as a resort pool area …
... It was first settled by the Spanish and the architecture of the town displays its Spanish roots. We walked down George street and took a tour of the oldest wooden schoolhouse in the United States. It had a huge chain wrapped around it with an anchor to stop a hurricane from blowing it away.
We also toured the Castillo de San Marcos which was built over several decades starting in 1672. The fort changed hands many ...
... looking down the spiral staircase. We went to the Daytona International Speedway, but didn't go in as it looked like major construction work was under way in preparation for the October car racing events. We drove around Tomoka State Park, an intracoastal waterway were the Tomoka and Halifax Rivers meet. An American Indian tribe called the Nocoroco lived here back in the 16th century. Then to Davids absolute delight we did a little bit of retail therapy ...
... for another night here as it a beautiful area so much to see here, tomorrow we will go sight seeing. Went out for dinner another down pour just like last night but this time we waited in the car until it was over,we went to a cool restaurant with cars cut in half for booths, called "Cruisin Cafe" .... very Daytona car racing ...
... to his music, I admired the beautiful clear sky and brilliant galaxy of stars all around me. I got his attention on our new headset system and shared what I was observing. We both agreed that the brilliance would only get better as we traveled west on our journey. We rolled into Daytona at 11:15. We are so blessed that we have a great crew at Martek to take care of everything so we can take this time ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hammock Beach Resort Palm Coast
Awsome Place To Stay
One of the best places my family and I have ever stayed. The pools were great and staff was helpful and kind. The 3 bedroom condos were beautiful.
Beautiful scenery and congenial staff, however there was some serious flaws. Apparently when they built the hotel they did not bother to put in a water treatment system....and they run off of a well. So, spa tubs are great if you like bathing in water the color of tea that reeks of sulfur. I suppose this may be why the pools are overloaded with chlorine. Between the pool and the shower, my hair was fried! When we booked our room we were told we would have a full kitchen with a private bedroom. Wrong!!! Our kitchen was in a closet and the room was studio. No icemaker in the kitchen so we were told to trek to the main lobby and request it at the bar. For $250 a night I expect more than this. The other closet boasted a hot water heater and ac unit that kicked in noisily every few minutes. Feather/down pillows and blankets were provided for our comfort...too bad we couldn't get enough peace to sleep. Visited the hotel's new upscale restaurant. I suggest that, if you are indeed a culinary, save your money and wait until you can get to a tried and true restaurant. Like the hotel, the food was beautiful but not really enjoyable. Complaints expressed to the front staff were met with a glazed smile and a vacant stare. Out of the many resorts that we have visited this ranks as the lowest. Too bad; it's fixable but whether or not they will improve is a chance my wallet and I don't intend to take!
I just returned from a weekend at the Club at Hammock Beach. It was wonderful. I went with 6 friends for a "girls weekend" away. We loved it so much that we want to bring our families back and also plan to go back for our getaway next year. We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo - very luxurious. The view was great. The beach was very private. We felt like we had it to ourselves. The grounds were exceptionally maintained. There were a bunch of pools, a big waterslide, and a lazy river. They have a restaurant at the pool area and had live music late in the day. They have a huge fitness center with weights and aerobics equipment and a separate room for spin classes, step and other aerobics classes. Walter, the fitness manager, was terrific! We took two of his classes. They also have an indoor pool, spa, shops, and restaurants. Two of us treated ourselves to a massage. They have a kids club which I can't comment on because my children weren't with me. However, I kept thinking how much my children would love the resort. The place is new, but all the services are now open (as of June 5th). Right now, it's not at all crowded, but as the word gets around, I'm sure that will change. I can't wait to go back!
The Holdin party of eight ranks this resort among the best if not the best. We plan to travel every year to your resort for our reunion. The condo was wonderful and plenty of room for the eight of us. We can't wait to get back next year.
Loved every time
We have stayed at the Club of Hammock Beach and were impressed with the condominiums decor etc. The club has wonderful amenities with the pool geared for children i.e lazy river, waterfalls, and slide. The golf course is beautiful and right off the ocean. I would highly recommend the Club. If there is a draw back I would say the town of Palm Coast does not have alot to offer, however, St Augustine is right up the road and it has attractions and good resturants.
Can't wait to go back
Absolutely incredible! Family oriented, impeccably clean and even the adults had fun. Walter at the Conceirge desk made my childrens day! We were there over Easter - they offered a sunset church service and a great egg hunt for the kids. The lazy river and the water slide brought many hours of enjoyment for all 4 of us. When we were finished will the MANY pools on site we just took a short walk to the beach. It was on the pricey side, 3 hambergers, 2 hot dogs and 4 soft drinks was a whopping $49. We learned quickly to not eat poolside. I really can't wait to go back - I think June 2004 is the tentative plan!
It's perfect!! There is everything to do and you don't have to leave the place. Perfect for families.
We were amazed at the luxury of Hammock Beach. It was simply amzing.
The developer did a great job, all rooms have ocean views and are very well equiped. Many of the units are actually 3 bedroom units that are ideal for families. The resort has a top notch pool complex and abuts a great golf course. The fitness room and restaurant were not finished as of mid March but they look to be ready soon. Overall it is a woderful place that I highly recommend
A Hidden Gem
Its Brand New so all of the amenities were not in place. But, what was available was spectacular. The pool faciluty has an indoor and several out door pools, waterslide, lazy river, waterfalls et. The landscaping is like a botanical garden and the staff were extremely helpfull and simply curteous in every way. When this is finished its going to be hard to beat anywhere in florida.
