My family and I stayed at Ocean Sky for 4 nights last week. After reading many of the mixed reviews here I didn't know what to expect. However, the staff and resort itself was very pleasing and my family and I miss it there! The staff were exceedingly friendly. Keyla at the front desk was very helpful and Ms. Helene... More

We used the hotel as overnight transit from the airport to the ocean terminal. For this purpose it is a bit far out of town with taxi from airport to hotel and hotel shuttle from hotel to cruise terminal costing about US$50 each way. The hotel is also about 20 min walk to the nearest shops. On the other hand... More

Thank you for the nice comments on our new comfortable bedding, nice rooms and location. I certainly would like to apologize for your dissatisfaction with employee Ace. It sounds like he was following our policy of no coolers on the pool deck and that the situation escalated. We certainly put a premium on returning guests and our hope is that... More

We arrived at this resort on a Thursday evening. The reception staff were very friendly and we were soon checked in. We went up to our room and although the room was a fairly good size but it was very tired and dated. The rooms were basic. A refridgerator, coffee machine and a small table and chairs. The walls were... More

Thank you for staying with us and nice comments on friendly staff. I am quite surprised to hear that our pool area is small as I believe that we have one of the largest pool decks in Ft. Lauderdale. We hope to see you again and that you will have a more pleasant stay. Paul Cahaly General Manager More

Stayed at the Ocean Sky Hotel and Resort for just one night before heading to the Southern end of Florida. Concierge and Front Desk were helpful and super pleasant. The location was perfect, we were able to enjoy the beach, the pool, and a cute downtown area not too far away. Access to the beach late at night was perfect... More

We stayed here recently for 3 nights before heading off on a cruise from the port. The staff were all very helpful and the entrance to the hotel is very welcoming. The valet parking was really great and not expensive , around $12 per day. There is a restaurant and bar at the hotel but the food was not very... More

Overall experience at Ocean Sky was wonderful, very relaxing and pleasant experience. Searched a lot in the Ft Lauderdale area for an affordable option for a long weekend that was beachfront. Wasn't finding anything in Central Ft Lauderdale that fit the bill unless you went blocks off of the beach so we ventured further north and found Ocean Sky. Reviews... More

First of all let me start off by saying I had a great vacation at the Ocean Sky Resort. We had a room on the 8th floor with great ocean views. It had a nice balcony with 2 chairs. We had 2 double beds which were very comfortable and the pillows were great. The bathroom was small, but updated nicely.... More

We came with a large group, and one of the sale directors, Vanessa, was incredibly helpful making sure we had everything we needed. Everyone had an awesome weekend. We were all given attractive very clean rooms with nice views of the ocean. The beach is beautiful! We plan to return.
