This place is suitable for 2-3 days sleep - no more. It is close to the beach and has its own parking. You can find a lot of restaurants and shops right on the seaside. All in all there is nothing memorable about this place. I have an impression that our apartment was gloomy and not very clean. Air conditioner... More

There are plenty of reviews on TripAdvisor that nearly all say the same things, and after staying here for 3 nights, I can attest they are accurate. This place is not fancy, and it is older, but it was affordable, comfortable, and very clean. We had very little interaction with the staff, but the times we did, they were very... More

This is an older property located a couple of blocks from the beach but it is well maintained and the staff really care about your comfort and satisfaction. Many regulars fill this smaller motel so book far ahead to secure a unit. We had a good-sized room with a small table, fridge and toaster oven. There is a lovely courtyard... More

The reviews for Vistamar Villa are accurate. I think one thing that is important to note is that the location backs up to the Bonnet House. This 37 acre historic refuge povides for a nice quiet sleep in the bedrooms. If you are a Fort Lauderdale regular and are looking for a quiet sleep and the kind of accomidations noted... More

We were heading out on a cruise and needed a place to stay for two nights beforehand. We picked this place because it is our style - small, family-owned, and good value. The Trip Advisor reviews were good, so we gave it a chance. We arrived very late (1 AM) after a late flight and sure enough, the keys were... More

We discovered this quiet Little motel last year. It is 1/2 way between the ICW & the beach & w/i a short bus ride or drive of the Galleria. Rooms are small but efficient & the suites are almost apartment sized.There are modest cooking facilities. A combo coffee pot & toaster oven - the 1 st I've ever seen. Plus... More

I recently spent my only night in Fort Lauderdale at this small, family run hotel a couple blocks from the beach. We arrived late after the front desk closed and, as promised, the room key had been left by the front door. Their attractive patio, with pool and palm trees, was well lit and we easily found our way to... More

October 5th – October 6th I found this gem in the Fort Lauderdale area on tripadvisor.com. This hotel lived up to the reviews that I read before I booked our stay. The room: We were in room 103 which is a suite on the first floor. The suite featured a good-sized living room with 32” flat panel TV, couch, chair,... More

We haven’t been to Fort Lauderdale for about 5 years and were surprised to see how hotel prices have gone up. So were pleasantly surprised to find the Vistamar Villa a couple of blocks from the beach and quite reasonably priced. We had a large suite which was really like an apartment at a considerably lower rate than some other... More

Our group of 11 stayed at the Vistamar Villa 3 days prior to a cruise and 2 days after. This facility was ideal for accommodating our needs. The location is very good, on a quiet street a couple of blocks from the beach, a short walk from some interesting corner shops and restaurants, and not that much longer of a... More
