This place is s little oasis and the staff could not do enough to help. Looking for recommendation and booking a boat tour took the manager half an hour but this was no problem. In terms of the pool and the rooms they were spotless. Towels for the pool provided as and when needed. When we had to leave the... More

Admittedly this review is late - we stayed early January - so things may have changed. Our flight arrived late at night but we were conveniently able to make arrangements for key collection. But early the next morning we were woken by the very loud construction work just outside our window (we were in Unit 6). It wouldn't be as... More

We traveled to Ft. Lauderdale last week, arriving at the Kira-Mar late in the afternoon. I patted myself on the back for choosing such a charming hotel -- beautiful pool, well-maintained, comfortable rooms -- it felt as though we were guests at someone's house rather than guests at a hotel. There was obviously some construction going on across the street,... More

We stayed at Kira-mar between 29 of januari until 7 of februari. Kira-mar is a nice place, with a few apartments. It's an oasis in Fort Lauderdale. The owners, Reggie and Nancy are very nice and helpfull. They take there time to answer questions about roaddirections and places to visit. It's nice to view the canal from the poolarea. The...

We thoroughly enjoyed our night at Kira-Mar while in Fort Lauderdale the night before boarding a Caribbean cruise. The location was wonderful, right near Las Olas Blvd which was great for dining and shopping. We enjoyed a wonderful morning walk to the famous Fort Lauderdale Beach on Saturday morning, having fun seeing all of the beautiful mansions and yachts as... More

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
