"Not particularly impressed"
When we arrived, we were given a room without a bet. I called the front desk and they said the bed was in the wall. I was like, "WHAT?". That's not what we made a reservation for. We were expecting a regular queen bed, not a Murphy bed. The floors of the hotel room were tiled but dirty. Could not walk around in bare feet. Our socks got very dirty. There […] was a coffee pot and a package of coffee in the room when we arrived but we had to pay a dollar of a package of coffee the next day. Although there was a towel exchange offered once or twice a week, there was an additional charge for cleaning. Although it was on the beach with a fairy fancy pool, this was not a typical hotel. It was a vacation ownership resort. We were not particularly impressed. Have stayed a nicer places for the money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This was a great place. The staff at the Cove are wonderful and we will definitely stay there again. My only complaint is that the condos do not have washer / dryers. However, all the other positives far out weigh any negative.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is about the 5th time we have stayed at The Cove and as always it was great. It is always wonderful seeing Jennifer and Angela at the front desk. They both are always so pleasant and helpful. They always make our stay so memorable and we really appreciate them. We were very impressed with Boston Bob's consistent strong worth ethic. It is people […] like them that make a hotel seem like home. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Place to Stay with Kids"
We loved this place. We just took a weekend trip with our 2 kids (ages 5 and 1) and this place made the trip worth while. We didn't have to leave to keep the kids entertained. The pool area is geared 100% towards children, so factor that in if you are a couple or don't want kids around. Plus we could jump out of the pool, go play in ocean for a bit, […] and go back up to the pool area without having to pick up our towels and everything. Very convenient. They loan you beach towels at the front desk, give you chairs and umbrellas on the beach, and have plenty of seating poolside too. The showers and hoses where you come in off the beach are nice to wash off the sand. As far as our room goes, we were extremely pleased. We stayed in the south tower, and actually had a King Size bed instead of the Queen we expected. That was nice, as the kids just piled in with us instead of sleeping on the Hide-A-Bed. We were 1 room away from being the farthest from the ocean, but we could still see the ocean and hear the waves just fine. The room certainly wasn't ocean front, but that was unimportant to us. We will certainly be going back here when we can stay longer. Also, I never heard one mention of the time-share sales pitches and stuff, and I even asked a bunch of questions about reservations and such. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great for small children"
It was nice i liked that they provided lounge chairs and big sun umbrellas on the beach every day that they put up for you. The staff was friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a wonderful relaxing 4 days. We will definitely return to the Cove at Ormand!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Never disappointed at the Cove"
We've stayed at the Cove several times and are never disappointed. Our room was in the south tower on the ground floor. Ground floor has it's advantages - short walk to the pool, no waiting for the elevator; and it's disadvantages - no ocean view, little privacy (windows & sliding glass door are right at the parking lot). The room was clean and stocked […] with everything we needed except shampoo in the bathroom. I was glad to notice an extra security measure for the sliding glass door since we were on the ground floor. My favorite thing about the Cove is the pool area. The deepest part is 3.5 feet so it's great for kids. On one end it has a gradual entry with a tall waterfall fountain. At the other end is a fun twirly water slide. Between the two is a lazy river with water spray and random water dump buckets. We enjoyed our stay at the Cove and wouldn't hesitate to return again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Without having to leave there was something to do!"
My family had a fun time playing in the sun. The activities for the kids were fun and interesting. The room was nice and supplied with cooking stuff, to cook with.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right on the beach with a nice outside pool"
Overall, the hotel is nice. It is clean and the rooms are nice. Hotel staff were helpful and friendly. Nice pool with a slide and right on the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to vacation with the family"
This is the 2nd time we stayed at the Cove. Last summer my husband and I went by ourselves and it was such a nice facility that this summer we took our two married daughters with our son-in-laws and the grandchildren. We all had a wonderful time and the whole family agrees we will most definately be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great getaway for couples"
My wife and I chose this hotel based on overall price and previous reviews, and we were not disappointed. We stayed for 1 week in a 1 bedroom suite in the North tower with a furnished kitchen and a balcony overlooking the pool area and ocean. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel if you are looking to spend some quality time on the beach relaxing. […] The beach is public space, and therefore alcohol is discouraged, but with a little effort disguising your drink is no problem, the hotel does not care. From the ground floor, you are no more than 200 feet from sandy beachfront; outdoor hot tub and pool. Also they have chairs and umbrellas that are put on the beach in the morning. The staff was more than helpful in finding areas to dine out, find groceries, or just about any entertainment you could want. The only con that is worth mentioning at all, is this hotel participates in a time share program that they would like you to listen to. It is approx 1 hr long, and can be a somewhat high pressure, but not too bad. The benefits to listening to the presentation is their "VIP" wrist bands that give you little things like free bottled water at the poolside, boogie board rental, and free lunches, and stuff like that.

"Great hotel for a family with kids"
We enjoyed our stayed at The Cove. The rooms were clean and spacious enough for our family. My kids loved the pool area!! There was a slide for the older kids with a lazy river (my kids played in this area for hours), and they also have a side that was really shallow for our baby who could actually stand up in this water. He was a happy tot as well. […] The staff was courteous and helpful. I don't have any complaints. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very nice stay. The room was excellent. Everything you would need for an extended stay. Full kitchen, laundry, dish washer, comfortable bed. Great view of beach and community. Great location. Price was appropriate.Genuine Expedia guest review

Love it .. Had a great time with my family!! Can wait for next year!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Nice and Family Oriented"
A few things you should know is that this is not a hotel, it is a time share which they rent out to you. There is no daily straightening up of your room or replenishing of your towels, tiolet paper,or other usual supplied items. You will have to go to the main desk in the lobbly to trade out your towels or to ask for another roll of t-paper. These are […] not dreadful faults and the staff is way above average in kindness but it was annoying since they would only give one roll per day when we had a reservation for nine days; obviously, we would be using several rolls during our stay. We also decided to just wash and dry our own towels since the washer/dryer were in the room. Overall, the stay was pleasant, the walls were thick enough not to hear anyone in the room next door but we could hear chairs moving above us. The appliances were in good order and everything was there to cook almost any meal. The biggest plus to us was the washer/dryer in the room. We could keep our clothes clean and beach towels dried for the next day. Overall, a good stay for us and extremely family oriented for children with a great pool area, the slide was especially enjoyable to the young ones. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Almost five stars but ..."
This is a condo so no housekeeping service, not a problem for me. The room and pool areas were terrific. I stayed in the north tower, one bedroom. The biggest problem was the noise, the walls are extremely thin and we had neigbors that stayed up very late. You can also hear chairs dragging across the floor above. Nice place just bring earplugs if you […] want a good night sleep. The sleeper sofa mattress was old, not comfortable. Want to avoid crowds at the pool, go between 6:30 pm to closing time. Overall pleased, just wish they would insulate the walls. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great choice for families with children"
We chose this based on other reviewers and we have no regrets. This is a time share and all units have full kitchens. Ours had a washer /dryer in the room also. views are not direct beach views as the building sits sideways however we did have a decent beach view from our balcony. The queen size bed is more like a Full size but that just might be my […] perception. The room and facility provided a great trip for our family and the lazy river pool with slide was a hit with our son....FYI the deck around the pool is thick paver stones and can get quite hot. So be prepared. People come down stairs early to grab a chair so beat the rush if you want one. Restaurants are across the street and we went to LULU's for dinner one night and that was excellent.

"Our stay at "The Cove""
we totally enjoyed staying here. The only downfall was them selling time shares, but i have to say they were not pushy in their trying to sell at all. They do offere a great benefit to listen to their sales pitch, which we did not do. Next time i think i would. If you have young children, this is a great and fun place for them to stay. They also have […] lounge chairs under umbrellas set up at the ocean daily, which we thought was a great perk. Also the rooms were very clean. I do prefere carpet over tile and the living room was tile and the bedroom was carpet which was nice. The other thing is you do not get a full view of the ocean, its a side view, which is very nice, but i have to say i prefere a entire full view of the ocean, but it wouldnt keep me from staying again. We will go back :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Such a wonderful vacation spot..."
We had a wonderful time at The Cove. We had 4 adults and my 2 children in a 2 bedroom condo in the North Tower. It was spacious enough that we didn't feel cramped and it was very clean. My children loved the water park and slide, and our views of the ocean from both of our balconies were fantastic. Also the beach is absolutely amazing. Not too crowded. […] We also loved the fact that the property offered a beach chair and umbrella service free of charge. All in all, we loved The Cove and will deffinitely be staying there again in the future!

"Well worth the price of admission!!"
Very pleased with our decision to stay at the south tower at The Cove on Ormond Beach! The reviews are generally right on for this one. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the building itself has been very well maintained. Our room was clean, spacious, and came equipped with all the necessities such as cookware, dinnerware, and a washer and dryer. […] The room had very nice views of the beach/ocean as well as the pool area. The only complaints we had was the fact that the south tower only had one elevator. There was a bit of a wait at times but nothing too major. The second complaint was the fitness room. It basically consists of a treadmill and a broken Bowflex type machine. Two very minor things that we were quick to overlook. We will definitely stay at the Cove the next time we visit the area!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I read reviews before I do decide who gets my business and I must say I'm glad they got mine. I read a lot of good reviews and we made our choice to stay here. We stayed in the south tower so I can't rate the north one. Staff were always friendly, rooms were very clean and stocked full of all the appliances from home. Having a washer/dryer in room was […] worth a ton. Very close to all Daytona beach activities ( but not close enough to walk to em ) still just a few minutes drive. Enjoyed being right on the beach n the pool was good too. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our stay at The Cove on Ormond Beach."
This condo was easily one of the best we've ever stayed at. The room was immaculate. The funished kitchen allowed us to save a ton on eating out. The location was perfectly set on the beach in the middle of plenty of shopping, but easy to navigate around. The staff was kind and helpful and there was an overall positive and cheerful atmosphere among […] the staff and guests. The affordable price just topped off the stay and the kids LOVED the hotel waterpark. The indoor pool was a lifesaver when the pop up Florida showers would come and move everyone off the beach. There was plenty of room to play and things to keep them entertained, but again, not over crowded. They even offered activities (like mini spas and massages, clay art, cupcake decorating, etc.) and food throughout the day to those who wanted to take part in them. We will definitely plan on staying there anytime we're in the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you smoke, do go there."
Beware if you are a smoker. They don't even let you smoke on the outside balcony. They have an area out front by the door for smokers with only one chair. Also thought we were booking an ocean front room. They don't have any.Genuine Expedia guest review

"nice and clean but not ocean front"
I loved the one bedroom condo at the Cove. The location was great. The only problem was that the hotel is not oceanfront. It is ocean VIEW and I specifically wanted an oceanfront hotel so we could look out over the sand and ocean. But everything else was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
One word "GREAT" This hotel was very nice. Great location just outside of the hustle and bustle.Genuine Expedia guest review
"You should stay at the Cove!"
We stayed at the hotel (South Tower building) for three days in April 2012 and we were very happy with our accomodations. Our room was clean, the beds/bedding was nice and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There were daily activities for minimal cost, as well as free beach chairs and umbrellas (they go fast though). The beach is […] gorgeous here and the area is quieter than Daytona. The only thing we were disappointed in was the temperature of the outdoor pool. It was very very cold, they should heat enough so that it is comfortable to get in and swim. It looked so much fun, but it was too cold to enjoy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Can't wait to go back!"
It was a great hotel, for a reasonable price. The washer/dryer in the room was a nice touch. Next stay, I will try and get a a room closer to the ocean, bc when we had our door open to our balcony, it was hard to hear the ocean over all the traffic noise. I definitely recommend this hotel. It was very family oriented, which was great for us. A nice […] bonus was the complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas on the beach. I was a little disappointed with the cars on the beach, I was under the impression that it was not allowed where we were. Will make a difference when our little girl starts running around everywhere. And the pool was phenomenal! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Condo in Ormond Beach"
This was a great location for family fun. We have stayed here before and were not disappointed with this stay. Being right on the beach was a huge positive for evening walks. While the condo is on a busy street, the noise level was totally acceptable even with the patio doors open. It is definitely on our list for a return stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Highly recommended and would return again"
We were looking for lodging that was just outside the craziness of Daytona Beach during spring break. Ormond Beach was just the ticket. Bikers week was the week prior to when we arrived. We arrived on Sunday night 4.18.12 after driving a couple of days from Minneapolis. I knew we wanted a place with a kitchen, pool and was on the beach. The Cove on […] Ormond Beach was fantastic. We were in the south tower in a 1 bedroom unit that overlooked the Atlantic. They have both an indoor and outdoor pool. The outdoor pool had a water slide and jacuzzi. The Cove put out lounge chairs on the beach with umbrellas. First come first serve. You need to go to the front desk and get beach towels which you sign in and out on a daily basis. Bring your sunscreen! We upgraded to VIP status by agreeing to attend a 45 minute timesharing presentation. It was worth it. The Cove has several activities/breakfast or lunch offerings that are available to VIP's free of charge. There was a Publix grocery store about a mile south of the facility which was very convenient. Our room had an over and under washer/dryer which we used every day. They stock the room with dish and dishwasher soap, 3 rolls of tp and a roll of paper towels so depending on your stay you may need to buy more. Bring your own shampoo. Look up Mike at the Conceirge desk he was VERY helpful. He had great ideas for things to do in the area. The price was right and we had a wonderful stay. We would return again.

"The Cove - Bike Week"
Three of us stayed in complete comfort in this hotel. Accomodations were spacious, beds were probably the most comfortable I have slept on at any hotel in the past 3 years! It was nice having a kitchen too. The staff provided dedicated bike parking, not covered, but at least they roped off a good portion of the lot to accomodate. They also allowed […] for one vehicle OR trailer. Understanding that in order to accomodate every gues they could not allow for both vehicle and trailer, this was totally acceptable. Staff also had a good lead on a third party for extra parking, which was expensive ($20/day), but again, very acceptable. We did not use any of the amenities so I cannot comment on that. Next year I'll try to find a place with covered parking for the bikes, but if I cannot find it then I will definitely come back here!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Excellent usomer service"
The cove at Ormaond Beach was a fantastic stay. I was upgraded at no charge and completely by suprise. The room was spacious and clean. Jennifer at the desk took care of me like I had been a loyal customer for 10 years . . . that's how you get loyal customers for 10 years! There was not one staff member I encountered that did not smile and say "Hello" […] or tell us to "Have a Good Day." When the Daytona was cancelled on Sunday, Jennifer and the manager on duty went out of their way to get us another night's stay at a discounted rate. I will stay there when ever I travel to Daytona - they worked hard to make me want to be a customer for life. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We got an ocean view room but it was really close to being ocean front! Very nice views and comfortable for our family's stay! Loved it! The staff even recognized us and called us by name, and were extremely helpful! The negatives would be 1) the pull out bed mattress was badly stained 2) they really focus on being "green", so the shower was more like […] rainfall and we had to empty our own trash and clean up. Also, I thought the ad said 2 32" TV's and that wasn't what we got. Overall, a wonderful hotel, and I would stay here again!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
