I agree with other reviews. Very nice property, great staff and location. Owner was rude to staff and guests.

To summarize: The accomodations were clean and nice, the price was fair, the location was great and we would have planned a return trip had it not been for the owner's behavior after we attempted a refund for an incorrect charge on our credit card. We booked four nights at this hotel in November at the specail $99 rate. After... More

I can't say it enough how much I appreciate the hospitality and kindness given to me during my stay at La Casa del Mar. I spent 9 days there and really enjoyed my stay. I booked online after taking the virtual room tours online. Im always a little skeptical of pictures that hotels put up online, because some how places... More

My hasband and I almost made a reservation in this hotel-motel. After reading other people's review, decided not to do it. Previos owners were family oriented - not new ones. If this is become gay motel - they have to tell on website. By the way, dentist can run the hotel also if he is good businessman. Probably, he was... More

Decided not to stay at La Casa Del Mar. Be wary of Ohad the manager. I called for info and wasn't sure whether to reserve a room or not. He offered to hold the room until the following morning and asked that I leave my card info, which I reluctantly did. I called him back the next morning to cancel... More

In early December I booked a trip to Ft. Lauderdale to stay at the La Casa Del Mar (Soberano Resort) after finding it on lanierbb. I spoke with Wally, an employee of innkeeper Ohad Soberano. As I am on a budget, I was interested in the 99 dollar special advertised on their site. When I inquired about its availability, Wally... More

When we booked with them, we thought we were going to a all gay resort since we saw the ad in a gay magazine. When we arrived, we were so disapointed to find families with kids there in the pool. Nice place, just beware it is not a male gay hotel and No heated pool like they say either.

The new owner is very weired. He is obessed with rules and regulations and does not like childrens. Room and pool are nice, (beware of cockroaches), but we would not stay another time because of him. Breakfast is a joke.

The new owner, Ohad, has done a wonderful job. The entire villa has been remodeled inside and out. They were very accomodating with our special request. Very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and attractions. All kinds of new ammenities have been added for the guest experience.
