"While I stayed at The Makai Beach Lodge for three weeks I saw the new owners replace all of the mattress' and were starting to replace all of the guest room doors. The Makai Beach Lodge is beautiful and the staff are awesome. I walked out of my patio door and there was the beach, not even 30' away. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone."

"We have been coming to the Makai for many, many years! My 16 year old granddaughter, Shelby, remembers staying at the Makai when she was 2, and visiting with the Easter Bunny on Easter Sunday. We have many pictures to reflect these fond memories. Thanks so much for the quality service you provide."

"My parents started staying at Makai before I was even born and now I am taking my family there! Last week my future in-laws where with us and it was wonderful!! I was sad that Linda and Gary are no longer the owners but I like that the new owner is investing in the restoration of Makai. So many memories have been made there and we are looking forward to making many more!! In fact, we are getting married there in November!!"

"We stayed 3 nights in April and loved it! Ocean front, right next to pool and beach. A good area to walk my dogs and close to everything. The front desk staff, Steve and gal were very nice and helpful. Next time we would need to get a room with kitchenette, coffee pot. Even though we had a problem in the bathroom, was fixed within 2 hours. Still, would definetly stay here again and same time of year because the rates were good. Thank You!"

"Makai was recommended by a friend (local Ormond Beacher) last Fall. Had a good stay then. Came back May 2012 - even better. The owner and staff and are 'on a mission' to make the place quite the clean and friendly place anyone would come back to again and again. And when they say ON THE BEACH - THEY MEAN ON THE BEACH. Biker and pet friendly - need I say more? OK. Free continental breakfast. Free 'toys and games' loaners. Did I say Guest Friendly?"

"Was looking for a pet-friendly hotel and looked at a few websites including Makai's. There was some confusion about pricing and misinformation on the other sites so I called the Makai for clarification. I spoke to and I booked our stay through Marisol. She was really friendly, helpful, and great all around! The afternoon we checked in, the man at the front desk was not very friendly. The hotel was booked solid for the Labor Day weekend. We came with a small pull behind trailer which we were able to park across the street from the hotel. I had heard about all these upgrades that had been made to the hotel rooms so was very excited to see our oceanfront room in the Lodge part of the hotel. The overall room appearance was nice. The flat screen TV is mounted on the wall. There was a recliner and sofa bed which were nice. The bed had more pillows than I had ever seen in a hotel room which was really nice as we usually bring our own from home. The bed was ok. Did not have one of the newer mattresses. Having a kitchen was nice as we were staying a week and cooked many meals to save money to do other activities and take a few day trips. Yes the exterior of the hotel is dated but it is an older hotel. Yes there were many barking dogs day and night but it is a pet-friendly hotel. The pool was clean and very nice. The hot tub had a lot of sand in it the first few days. It was cleaned but took almost 2 days to reopen so we did not get to try it before leaving as we had hoped to. We had family visit with us and it was nice to have the picnic tables and BBQ grills available and the pool and ocean to swim in. The housekeeping staff was also very friendly and nice. We were a little disappointed when we first got to our room as it appeared not to have been cleaned for some time. Luckily I bring Clorox wipes and a shark hand vac with us. I spoke with Marisol the morning after our arrival and she was very embarrassed and apologetic about the condition of the room. Overall our stay was very good and when we go back to the Daytona area we will stay there again. Jerry at the front desk was very friendly and helpful as we had left something behind in the room and he mailed it to us."

"It was Spring Break of 1976 when 12 of us stayed in one room at the Makai and had the time of our life! Being respectful to the owners, they were ever so kind in allowing us a little 'extra' latitude as we partied morning, noon and night. At 4:00 pm everyday, we had 'The Beer Relays' as we would compete against other high school guys and gals from around the country. We were 11-0 folks! Swim to one length of the pool, get out, chug a beer and then swim back and tag a team member to go. A total of four per team. Sweet. Our song of the trip was 'Oh what a night' by The Four Seasons! Greatest time of our lives! Thank you Makai Beach Resort!"

"We had a wonderful stay recently. After a exhausting Disney experience we were happy to relax for several days. My husband had never stayed right off the beach like that. He was talking about coming back before our trip was even up. We look forward to coming back and staying longer this trip."
