Spent a few days at hotel. It's a very pretty hotel. Rooms are well furnished, clean & spacious. It's location is directly across the street from the beach.The Bistro & Sasia Restaurants are great! My only recommendation is to add some nightlife to the really good hotel. Will definitely return!

My experience was absolutely wonderful!! I want to thank profusely to James and also Cris (front desk) for their kindness and courtesy. Aware that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary they gave us an room upgrade and a bottle of champagne. We were overwhelmed! People at the breakfast area were also nice and happy to assist you. The location is... More

We stayed here in the early spring and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and friendliness of this hotel. Check in was a breeze and the front desk staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. Our room was a double queen with a full ocean view and it was breathtaking. Waking up to a panoramic view of the beautiful Fort Lauderdale... More

My husband and I are frequent visitors of Ft. Lauderdale beach, and this has by far, been our favorite hotel. We stayed for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room views were spectacular (we stayed in a King corner) and the actual room itself was beautiful. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The hotel bar had excellent... More

Loved the wave detail and changing colours in the lobby and colour scheme in the room (white, silver and turquoise) which mimicked the luminosity of the ocean visible through a wall of windows. Beds are very comfortable. All rooms face the ocean. Delicious breakfast buffet for 18$ each ( and also breakfast à la carte) and there was smoked salmon,... More

We found the rooms clean and contemporary, almost sterile all white. The prices were high for the drinks and food, which was not in our opinion a good value, but it was not bad. Friends traveling with us had a problem with noise late at night, and we heard stomping. The pool was nice, but small, with very little room... More

The stay was pleasant but I would point out some things noting this is a 4 star hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious. The views are terrific the only downside and it is a real downside is the walls in rooms are paper thin. You can hear everything from noisy neighbours , people returning to their rooms and cleaning... More

Dear Anthony C, many thanks for sharing your detailled review of your stay. You are right in expecting that our staff would ask about your stay upon departure and I have already shared your note with our front desk team.Please note that the cost of our valet service is one of the lowest for upscale hotels on the beach.
