Reviewed 11 October 2015

Positive: clean rooms, friendly people, quite, great location. Negative: Noisy AC. No AC for kitchen or bathroom so the whole room was warm. Second hand smoke when sitting on the balcony. View from room was of drunk people on their houseboat.

We loved this resort tucked away on the lake/river. We stayed here while visiting my daughter who is a student at Stetson University. This place is quiet and secluded but only a short drive from downtown Deland. Our room was spacious, with a full kitchen and was clean and had a beautiful view of the water.

I have stayed at Hontoon Landing several times now and have never been dissappointed. They offer rooms and suites to fit most needs - from clean and simple, to high-end comfortable. We enjoy the fact that this resort is on a beautiful part of the St. John's River and offers guests great rates for multi-night stays as well as boat...

My first time ever experiencing Hontoon Landing Resort & Marina. We were celebrating my Birthday and are water babies and wanted to cruise the river and enjoy the outdoors. We had a group of 16. So we rented several rooms. The room we had was on the first floor and was more than we expected very clean, spacious, an electric...

Very nice people. Very well maintained grounds and pool. Easy access to Hontoon Island Park. Easy acces by boat on St. John river. Will be back this winter. Rooms were clean, but a little dated. Better than staying in non air conditioned cabin in August on Hontoon Island state park. Go back in time and enjoy a little getaway.

Our entire trip with Captain Josh was a delight. He was informative, entertaining, extremely familiar/well-educated with the nature surrounding us, and most impressively patient with the questions posed to him. The tour itself was a delight as well; each member of my family saw exactly what they wanted: rare birds, manatees, gators, and even a resting deer in the woods...
