We’re thrilled to announce that, in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, our Daytona Beach resort suffered minimal damage and is up and running! Our devoted staff worked tirelessly to clear the debris. The pool is open, the tiki huts survived the storm and the beach is almost back to normal.
In addition, most restaurants are open or in the process of re-opening, as are most major attractions (such as the Boardwalk, Ocean Walk Shoppes, downtown Daytona shops, the Daytona International Speedway and the Daytona Lagoon indoor amusements). Grocery stores are open, and although some debris remains on the roads, it isn’t impeding traffic.
Here are a few pictures from the storm, but rest assured that our wonderful staff has ensured that your upcoming travel plans will proceed smoothly!
