Great Stay

“I booked 2 rooms for the biketoberfest weekend. we traveled over 1000 miles riding bikes and trailering others. I am originally from the area and had never stayed there before but the easy of access to everything was just great. My friends loved the place the rooms were neat and clean. WOULD RECOMMENDED TO ANYONE WANTING TO STAY IN THAT AREA. WILL BE BOOKING AGAIN FOR NEXT YR.hopefully a little cheaper.”

Haughton, Louisiana – October 22


“We stayed recently and loved it! Very clean and great service. Perfect location. Staff very nice and got us other pillows right away as we are allergic to feather pillows. Very nice touches like cookies, happy hour and water at departure. Just like home!”

My New Daytona Home!

KY – August 28


“The Aku Tiki is my happy place. My family and I have visited several times and we always enjoy our stay. We just returned home from there and I am already dreaming of my next visit. It truly is like home away from home. Jane and the rest of the staff are always so friendly and helpful and we always meet the nicest people there who are also on vacation. We actually keep up with a lot of them when we return home. This is a clean, family friendly hotel where you can settle in and enjoy your vacation to the fullest. I highly recommend The Aku Tiki to anyone planning a Daytona vacation!! Missing it already and looking forward to next year!! “

Nashville, TN – July 23

a blessing

“my family and i stayed at Aku Tiki for our first visit this past week. my mother and another relative came with us. we had two oceanfront rooms with kitchenette, i have to say we were pleasantly surprised. the place is an absolute jewel. the staff were so kind and helpful. the rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable. Big shout out to housekeeping, not only did they do an excellent job but were so kind. I felt very safe and relaxed. Thank you for such a great enviroment to enjoy my vacation, My mother was with us and she was equally impressed and insisted i write this review. I have had a very hard time in the past finding a clean place in daytona that we all could enjoy. the beach was great , not a lot of commercialism. almost felt like we had a private area. Can’t say enough about the exceptional facilities. Thank you and God Bless.”

We were shocked

“I really should give the Aku Tiki a bad review, not because they deserve it, but we want to keep this terrific place a secret and all to ourselves! My two Sons and I just stayed there for the past 3 days and the reason I say we were shocked was because we couldn’t find one annoyance or disappointment in anything about the place. The staff are all extremely professional and friendly, going out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The room are very large, immaculate, and beautiful. The ocean view is the icing on the cake. Besides being very reasonable, they throw in some great extras, like a newspaper at your door every morning, a complimentary continental breakfast, and a happy hour too. Other hotels could take a lesson from these folks. We go to Daytona every Thanksgiving and will never stay anywhere else again.”

Florida – November 25

WOW…….another fantastic stay!

“We were blessed to be able to spend our 27th wedding anniversary at the Aku Tiki. Have been staying there since 2004 and wouldn’t dream of staying any where else! Love everything about the place……the staff go out of their way to make us feel at home! We are most partial to Jane!! 🙂 Have already made our reservations for our 28th Anniversary next year and can’t wait!”

“We stayed last weekend for a few days before our trip to Disney. Very nice staff, comfortable clean rooms. Breakfast and cocktail hours a bonus. I would certainly recommend to anyone visiting Daytona Beach.”

MA – September 24

Totally Awesome

“My family and I stayed at the Aku Tiki July 19-23 2012 and I have to say this hotel was awesome! We booked early and received a discounted rate (we had 3 rooms). The staff are the best and were attentive to our needs. I believe you have to ask to have your room cleaned if you are staying several days as we asked and they cleaned it perfectly! One of the best things I experienced was the great water pressure and temperature each time we utilized the shower. I have visited other hotels and water temperature has always been an issue. Did mention the breakfast and happy hour was the best!!! Great job to Aku Tiki staff and we will definitely stay here again when we visit Daytona Beach!!!”

Atlanta, GA – July 24

Great place!!!

“We really enjoyed the stay, the Staff was very friendly, Breakfist was good, and Alton, the Maintance man made us feel right at home. GREAT!!”

Orange Park, FL – July 23


“We stayed at the Aku Tiki for 3 nights. We booked through Expedia, and we arrrived that had upgraded our room at no extra charge for us. The staff was very friendly. The happy hour was a nice treat at 5:30. The room was okay. The hotel has some age but very well maintained. We would defintly stay here again.”

KY – July 1

Aku Tiki is the BEST!

“Aku Tiki is the best, the only place my family stays when we’re in Daytona . ..the free breakfast, the family friendly (and FREE) Happy Hour at night, we love staying in this clean, well-kept hotel. The kids can’t get enough of the pool and we love the sundeck area and this quieter part of Daytona Beach. The room rates are really reasonable – we get the kitchen for just a few dollars more and walk to the grocery store just up the street for lunch food. We’ll be back again next summer for sure!”

Family Vacation

“We stayed at Aku Tiki for 3 nights. 4/14, 4/15 and 4/20. We LOVED waking up to the sunrise over the ocean!! It was spectacular!! We traveled to Daytona, spent 2 nights at Aku Tiki…then went to Walt Disney World for 4 nights and came back to Aku Tiki for one last night. The hotel was clean. The pool and hot tub was quite inviting and walking on the beach was fun. My girls loved the ocean and had a blast! The staff was most accomodating and friendly. Highly recommend this place and will definitely be back here next spring!! Thank you!!!”

Where the Sun Shines 24/7

“Stayed at the BH every year as a Spring get away. From the accomodations to the Staff you won’t find a better time in Daytona. They make you feel like family, even if it your first time, they keep in touch and let you know when they have a deal to bring you back. I won’t stay anywhere else on the east coast and that is coming from someone on the west coast. Hey I like waves…I was born in CA, like surf city ….a long time ago, but I have been loving Daytona since 75′ Thanks for the good times and see ya soon. ‘Surfer Joe'”

Kathleen Weaver
Clermont, FL – April 12

Definitely be back

“The Aku Tiki more than met our expectations, especially for the price. My husband, daughter & I enjoyed 4 nights here for Spring Break and had a great time. The staff is very friendly, happy hour is great…they even had activities for the kids! Our housekeeper was amazing…everything was always neatly in place when she was finished! I can’t remember her name, but we thoroughly enjoyed her! The only complaint we had was the Atlantic was freezing :)”

Awesome customer service

“I have stayed at the Aku Tiki for the last 4 years and I think these folks know customer service. The rooms are clean and the staying is easy. I highly recommend the Hotel. You will be glad you stayed here.”

Kannapolis, North Carolina – January 20

“Stayed here several times. Wonderful location. Ocean front with balcony excellent view of beach, ocean, birds. Sunrise view. Beautifully decorated large room and bath. Convenient efficiency with fridge, stove and microwave. Very, very clean. Very clean and large swimming pool and spa. Cocktails excellent and provided free at happy hour, but no appetizers – except pretzels and popcorn. Breakfast – basically continental but still big variety and well served. Right on the beach front and very, very close to ocean. Can’t do better and we have stayed at several in this area. Excellent restaurants within 10 minutes. Won’t stay any place whenever we come.

Lakeland, Florida

“Aku Tiki was very enjoyable. Rooms are nice and clean with ocean views. Free cocktail hour is great. Underground parking is very nice. Right on the beach with a nice pool area. Breakfast included pastries, cereal, bagels, fruit (good enough for me). Only negative was that is is a far walk to any restaurants/bars. No restaurant in the hotel too, but kitchens in the rooms.

Minneapolis, MN

“My adult daughter and I stayed at the Aku Tiki for Jeep Beach and we were so happy with our experience! We arrived early hoping to check in early but our room wasn’t ready yet. The woman behind the counter was so pleasant to us and offered to keep our bags for us while we went to the beach since my Jeep did not have a top. Our room was clean and spacious and the kitchen was clean and view was great. Whenever we needed anything the response was fast and pleasant. The continental breakfast was good. This will be our new go to hotel in Daytona!!!! Great rooms, great service and a great price!!!

Orlando, FL

“This place was amazing. We had a wonderful stay. The hotel was extremely clean and very kid friendly. They have beach toys for the kids, free cocktail hour, and free breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone and would definitely come back and stay again.

Valdosta, GA

“This hotel was clean, well maintained and very friendly staff. They offer a free coctail hour daily. That was a hit with our crew. They also offered a Easter egg hunt for the kids. This is right on the beach and has a nice pool and hot tub! We really enjoyed the Aku Tiki!! All rooms have atleast a view of ocean.

Diamond, OH

“Best hotel in Daytona. We stayed at the Aku Tiki with our daughter and 5 teenage grandchildren for 3 nights. This was our second time to stay at the Aku Tiki. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is spotlessly clean. The rooms are large and airy. The breakfast buffet was really good. The daily Happy Hour was very enjoyable. The Hotel is on the beach which was what you look for in Daytona, with easy access to the beautiful and clean pool. Our stay was most enjoyable. No rowdiness like you find in some of the other daytona beach hotels. Even our teenage grandchildren enjoyed it.

New Port Richey

“Awesome hotel, loved our stay. This is really a gem on the beach! It is clean, the staff friendly, beautiful setting. Plan on staying there every year now that we have found this hotel.


“Love the pool!! Love the beach!!! The happy hour is so fun. It lets you get to know all of your neighbors!! We knew most of the hotel by the end of the trip. Breakfast was simple but good. The views are very pretty. All room have a great view of the beach! We love this hotel. It was our second visit and we will most likely go back when in Daytona. I wish we would have had the full kitchen like last time. Some rooms only have microwave and dorm room fridge. All in all we love this hotel and would highly recommend it!


“My husband and I enjoyed our room and liked the friendly, low key atmosphere. A great break in between our busy and full lives. I would certainly recommend the Aku Tiki to my friends, family and clients.

“We enjoyed the cookies every day. Thank you so much for the Mother’s Day flower; that was so thoughtful. This was our third stay here and we enjoyed it very much. We are looking forward to next year. This is our favorite place to stay. We have been coming to Daytona for 40 years; having a nice clean place to stay means a lot to us. I want to thank all of the staff for a nice vacation.

Give our thanks to our maids…Mary and Laura…they were GREAT! You have such wonderful employees. Everyone…from the front desk to the lady at breakfast…to our maids…were just a pleasure to meet. So often, workers can be rude…I just wanted you both to know that your Staff is doing a wonderful job…and by the way, the employee shirts look fantastic! My husband wanted one!

“We are road warriors, traveling throughout the country for 35 years. My wife and I were treated (during our 2 day stay) with such warmth and hospitality by your staff. Bobbi, Troy, Kathleen, and Melissa are great people, a terrific team! Your breakfast and cocktail reception were superb! We will definetly recommend our friends who are retired (like us) to visit your fine hotel. We will be returning to your hotel in the near future.

D Richman
Boca Raton

“Boy was I pleasantly surprised! The hotel was very well maintained and our room was very comfortable and spacious. We didn’t interact with many employees with the exception of checking in and checking out. Both of which were very pleasant and friendly. If we crossed paths with employees due to our comings and goings they were pleasant and gave us a “Hello”. We were in town for a wedding and were back and forth visiting other relatives staying down the street. Hands down your hotel beat theirs and they paid the same rate as myself. A great value!! Had I known it would have been so nice I’d have referred them to it. I surely will in the future though. I went back to work Monday morning and told all my co-workers about it. Hopefully they too will checkout Aku Tiki and enjoy it!
