Travelers praise Azure restaurant's cuisine and ocean vistas
According to recent visitors, rooms could benefit from a refresh
The Shores Resort & Spa gets much praise for its customer service and unbeatable location between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. Guest rooms and suites here are decorated in a blue or yellow color palette and come outfitted with island-themed decor, Italian marble showers, high-speed internet access (covered by the daily resort fee) and flat-screen TVs. But this resort's most popular features are located outside. You can dive into the heated saltwater pool, which boasts beautiful oceanfront views and cushy cabanas ready for lounging. Or, unwind with a spa treatment at Indulge at The Shores Resort & Spa. Afterward, you can grab a bite at Azure, a well-loved open-air restaurant that serves upscale coastal fare directly in front of the beach. Despite its attractive amenities, some recent guests have described the conditions of the rooms as outdated and in need of an upgrade. However, many agree that if you choose this resort, you must spring for an oceanview room. You won't regret the splurge, especially at sunset. You'll find The Shores Resort & Spa on the southern portion of Daytona Beach Shores, less than 5 miles southeast of Daytona Beach, Florida.

Critic Reviews



With an awesome location and service with a high attention to detail, this resort is one of the top destinations in the area. The property is ideal for families, couples and even corporate functions.



Rustic furniture and beds swathed in mosquito netting are a nod to Old Florida at this 11-story beachfront resort, but there's nothing rustic about the amenities, including a luxury four-poster bed, doorless Italian marble showers and a 42-inch plasma TV in every room.

Fodor's Choice


The upscale, 212-room Shores Resort & Spa is on a peaceful beach away from the tourist crowds near central Daytona Beach. The style is classic beach-chic and features include fire pits, poolside cabanas, a swim-up Tiki bar, and a hot tub.
