Well maintained canal front 2 story exterior cooridor building without elevator in residential neighborhood with cramped parking. Can not access the canal front shore line because of residential area. Canel view is limited by large boats renting the docks on their limited shoreline. The experience was like staying at a friends house on the second floor and their guest room... More

Despite the construction work going our 2 nights stay was delicious! The manager is up to compensating for any disturbance and really made our short stay a great stay. Very clean, well decorated and extremely well kept property. Next time we will want to make our Fort Lauderdale stop longer to be able to fully enjoy the place.

Centrally located within reasonable walking distance (for the reasonably mobile!) to all of Fort Lauderdale's central attractions, the main positive of this family run hotel is that it is an oasis of tranquility. The self catering rooms Apartments) are spacious, and it has everything that's needed. Staff there VERY helpful and friendly. Would certainly stay again.

We chose Kira-Mar when we had a change to our vacation plans and needed to find a place in Ft. Lauderdale that had units with kitchens. After seeing the reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to give Kira-Mar a try. We were not disappointed at all with our experience. The property is nicely updated and well-maintained, but still has the feel... More

When I first heard about this place through tripadvisor, I couldn't believe how many good reviews there were. I was hard pressed to find one person say something bad about the place. And it took one moment from when I first arrived to realize how much of an ease this place was. I arrived a little after the office hours,... More

Everyone staying at Kira-Mar, including us, is a repeat guest. That obviously says something. Quiet and clean place, great pool, BBQ grills, picnic tables, free laundry. Since it is a small complex, everything is within 10 steps from your room. Managers Reggie and Nathalie live on site, so you know they are going to be make sure their own "home"... More

We thought the place was nice and decorated well. But we didnt get a decent nights sleep and forget about sleeping past 6am...the noisy from the street and construction was so bad that I could never stay there again. It also caters to the older crowd. There wasnt an ice machine or a soda machine to get a drink if... More

Thank you very much for your review and we are sorry there was so much noise from the neighboring properties during your stay. This usually is never a problem but unfortunately the property across the street was doing major construction during your stay with us and we look forward to it being complete soon. We hope to have the opportunity... More

This is a gem of a hotel, actually it is a diamond without any flaws. Natalie and her husband, Reggie are the most wonderful, and accommodating hosts that I have ever met. Many times I travel alone, and I always feel safe and secure. This is very important. Breakfast is free, and it is amazing! The rooms are impeccably clean.... More

My parents found this little hide-away almost by dumb luck. I live on the same street as the hotel and didn't even know it was a hotel, looks more like an apartment complex. The place was well-kept, with a certain Floridian, art deco charm (if you live here you know what I am talking about). It had a nice pool,... More
