U.S. News Review

The Shores Resort & Spa gets much praise for everything from its customer service to its ultra-comfy beds. Guest rooms here are described by recent guests as cozy and homey with a warm color palette, Italian marble bath fittings, high-speed Internet access and flat-screen TVs. But this hotel's most popular features are located out of doors. You can dive into the heated, saltwater pool, which boasts beautiful oceanfront views and cushy cabanas ready for lounging. Afterward, you can grab a bite to at Azure, a well-loved open-air restaurant that serves locally inspired, upscale fare. You'll find the Shores Resort & Spa on the southern portion of Daytona Beach
