Hotels immerse guests in the comforts of home as effectively as a childhood blanket or a pair of enchanted ruby slippers filled with chicken-noodle soup. Escape to a magical world of luxury with today’s Groupon: for $139, you get a two-night family stay at Perry’s Ocean Edge Resort in Daytona Beach (up to a $323 total value). The stay includes the following:
- Two-night stay for two adults and two children in a South Tower oceanfront suite (up to a $298 value)
- $25 worth of seafood and sandwiches at Aunt Catfish’s restaurant<p>
Palm trees and aquamarine umbrellas dot the white-sand beach at Perry’s Ocean Edge Resort, a boutique hotel that couples family-friendly recreation with posh accommodations. Azure and canary accents trim the South Tower oceanfront suite, which opens onto a private balcony that croons sea chanteys to the Atlantic Ocean. A cozy breakfast nook and a small kitchen add home-like convenience without the hassle of smuggling one’s own fridge past security. Nearby, Aunt Catfish’s sizzles Southern-style seafood along the Halifax River. Citrus dip and sides accompany fried coconut shrimp ($16.99), and savory scrawls adorn a pepperoni-laden flatbread ($7.99).
Come morning, the hotel’s house-made donuts fuel guests to explore the pristine beaches, which come alive with activities, such as surfing lessons and kid-friendly scavenger hunts, throughout the week. A beachside tiki bar refreshes parched palates, and on rainy days, guests can lounge in the heated swimming pool of the garden atrium, whose 10,000 square feet echo the seaside with live palm trees and 60-watt rays of sunlight.
