Oyster Hotel Review


Sprawling beachside resort attracts golfers and families

The Hammock Beach Resort is a huge pastel colored building rising up out of palm tree dotted lands. The sprawling surrounding grounds are equally striking, with azure pools aplenty, including a lazy river meandering past palm trees and lush plants, two golf courses, and a beautiful private beach. The grounds are immaculately maintained, with plenty of options for soaking up some sun or relaxing poolside -- kids will love the water slide and waterfall in the main pool and adults will be happy to learn that there is a designated adult pool. The resort lacks entertainment, however, be it poolside activities or evening music or performances.

Interiors are classic and traditionally decorated. The vast lobby is bedecked in shades of coffee and cream with dark wood details, along with several sitting areas throughout the space, such as the lobby bar in one corner, full of patterned chairs around round wooden tables, floral print rug, and olive drapes framing huge windows. Another cozy corner resembles a grand living room, with couches and armchairs surrounding a fireplace flanked by bookshelves. The lobby is elegant and very traditional, which some might find a bit stuffy for a beach resort. This property is geared toward higher end stays and leisure travelers looking to relax. It is popular with golfers and families that take advantage of the on-site amenities and kids' camp.


Right on the beach, between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach

The Hammock Beach Resort is located on the Palm Coast, situated right on an unspoiled and quiet beach. The resort is spread over sprawling grounds in a quiet area with few businesses or shops around, though there is a Publix supermarket within walking distance. The resort is located 23 miles south of St. Augustine and 33 miles north of Daytona Beach. The nearest airport is the Daytona Beach International Airport, located 36 miles away.


Large, traditionally decorated suites and villas with private ocean view balconies; some units in need of update

The Hammock Beach Resort has several different lodging options in different buildings, including Main Tower Suites, Ocean Tower Suites, the Lodge, Villas, and vacation rentals. Rooms are tastefully and traditionally decorated, though decor varies greatly between units; some are modern while others are dated with patterned bedspreads and in need of an update. All rooms are equipped with modern amenities, including mini-fridges, TVs (though not flat-screens in all units), coffeemakers, and free Wi-Fi, as well as private balconies with beautiful views overlooking the grounds and ocean. Some guests complain that rooms are dark due to the large balconies that can shade the sun. Suites are spacious and suitable for families, especially the three- and four-bedroom suites that have fully equipped kitchens, as well as living and dining areas. Suites in the Ocean Towers and villas even have laundry rooms with washers and dryers. Two- and three-bedroom villas are a bit of a walk from the main building, but offer more privacy.


Water park with multiple outdoor pools, lazy river, indoor pool complex, two championship golf courses, spa, huge fitness center, private beach, plus several restaurants and bars

Surrounded by sprawling lush grounds and bordered by a beautiful beach, the Hammock Beach Resort is a world onto itself with an extensive list of features. A popular destination for golfers, the resort has two exceptional golf courses that have been host to PGA Tour events.

The Resort has an extensive Water Pavilion, that includes five outdoor pools (one of which is a designated adult pool) surrounded by palm trees and lush plants and include a water slide and waterfalls. There is a lazy river as well as an indoor pool complex. The beautiful private beach has towels and chairs provided, and cabanas are available for rent as well.

Dining options are varied and plentiful, with several different restaurants and bars on the premises. Delfino’s serves Italian cuisine with an emphasis on seafood, the Atlantic Grill specializes in seafood and has great ocean views, and there is also a Sushi Bar, Ocean Bar and Café, and lobby bar. Loggerheads Lounge is an elegant dark wooded space that also houses a cigar bar. There is a coffee bar located in the lobby, though it is only open in the mornings.

The resort also has a spa offering a wide list of treatments and services, as well as a sauna, steam room, and large and well-equipped fitness center. For those wishing to do some outdoor sports, there is a beach volleyball court right by the beach, a state-of-the-art tennis complex with eight clay courts (though there is a fee to use them), and bicycles are available for rent. Wi-Fi is free.
