We had a great time at this hotel in Ft Lauderdale Florida. The only negative was overpriced small drinks at the Tiki Bar and never one given free even after running up $100 dollar bill per night due to the cost of the drinks. The house liquor was sub standard. The bartenders and barmaids were wonderful nice attentive people this... More

This is our fourth stay at Ocean Sky. Once again, the staff met and exceeded our expectations. Spent eight nights enjoying the beach, pool and hot tub. Room was clean and we enjoyed the 8th room balcony with a beautiful view of the sea. It is really nice as there are eating places close by plus a grocery and drug... More

We stayed here midweek for one night celebrating our 2yr anniversary. We emailed the hotel prior to arrival inquiring about a possible early checkin. No one responded to our email, however when we arrived our room was ready so it was a pleasant surprise. We stayed in the standard king room. The room was outdated and it showed signs of... More

Opposite experience from previous couple of years. According to a security guard that was monitoring the beach for coolers, coolers are NOT allowed on the beach due to a "cooler incident". Says it's a city ordinance.Hope you don't get thirsty at the beach with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the 90's. While I took mine back up to my... More

We had a wonderful stay here!! This was a three-generation trip with my mother and my daughter. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Cecilia checked us in and couldn't not have been anymore rude. We later found out she is a manager which was shocking to hear after her horrible customer service.

Great location and the hotel was very clean. Staff was very courteous and helpful. The hotel has been remodeled so has some aged areas but still nice. The location on the beach was outstanding for the money spent but what I was upset with was the fees that were attached to everything. Parking $15 a day, Jet ski's expensive, tiki... More

I expected more for the price of the room, $200.00 (Standard Room). We had a 2 double beds room and the mattresses were small and uncomfortable as well as the pillows. The hotel is very well located and Lauderdale by the Sea downtown is just 15 minutes away walking. The hotel has some annoying restrictions, you can’t use your beach... More

We have brand new mattresses in more than half of the hotel and will have the rest of the hotel furnished with these in the next month or two. We have completed many improvements over the last few years and hope that you come to see us again in the near future. Thank you. Paul Cahaly General Manager More
