used hotel for a brief overnight stop after flying from the UK. Excellent service from the several hotel employees that dealt with our check in and check out. Lovely clean, quiet room, pool and surrounding area looked lovely but not used.

I stayed at the Cocobelle another North Beach property last year and loved it so decided to try the Beach Gardens another of their properties this year. Initially I was pleased with my choice. The room was spacious with a fridge and free Wi-Fi. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the pool. The first day the room was... More

Stayed here after a 10 day cruise and it was a nice way to end my vacation. Not like the chain places. Very peaceful and relaxing. Was able to check in early-thank you Andrew & Gui (sp). Pool was nice but not heated tho-but that was ok. Room was clean & modern looking. Huge shower. Did wish there was a... More

We loved our spacious King bed room with kitchenette and bathroom. The bed was super comfortable. We were on the second floor overlooking the pool and it was great! The staff were very helpful and accommodating. It was a short three block walk to the beach but as soon as we were away from Los Olas Blvd it was sooooo... More

Mary S, Thanks for the 5-star review. We love the location of Beach Gardens too. Like you mentioned, it's walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants but it's tucked far enough away so guests can enjoy some peace and quiet! We appreciate you choosing Beach Gardens, thanks again! More

Wow!! The Beach Gardens was beyond what I could have imagined for my spring break experience. The staff was so welcoming and wonderful during our entire stay. Gina, Ray, and Daryl made us feel right at home. The rooms were so spacious and clean every day when we arrived back from the beach. The location was perfect: only a few... More

Wasn't sure what this place would be like but I was pleasantly surprised. Our room (602) had a separate living room from the bedroom. I hadn't expected that. Everything was very clean. the kitchen was stocked with dishes, silverware, pans, etc. The bedroom was spacious. This was obviously an apartment before being converted to hotel room but I enjoyed seeing... More

I only stayed at Beach Gardens for one night on a layover to the Bahamas, but I wish it was longer! Great room, beautiful grounds (shady sitting areas, bbq, pool, volleyball net - all surrounded by lush gardens) and wonderful service. Not in the hub of restaurants and bars, but not far, either. It suited me perfectly. 1.5 blocks to... More

The hotel is named properly. It is a two block from the beaches and handsomely landscaped. My companion and I found the newly rennovated rooms comfortable and clean. The kitchenette was a welcomed surprise. The value was good considering the high prices of lodging in Ft. Lauderdale. The company that manages this property has at least a dozen properties they...

We arrived early but our room wasn't ready until 2.00. However we were able to relax by the pool. Lovely clean rooms with good air conditioning and mini kitchenette so you can bring your own food and drink in. Very pleasant and helpful staff who let us have a late check out ($35 extra). Good location for beach and nice... More
