We have been in many different beaches and this one is our less favorite. It felt dirty, it looked dirty. We went there only once, we decided to drive to Fort Lauderdale las olas and wow what a difference, it was beautiful. Drive the extra minutes you won't regret it. Don't get me wrong the area of Lauderdale by the... More

Me and my wife planned on staying here because it seemed like a decent place. As I read the reviews,I got worried but was assured by the staff everything would be perfect. Too bad that staff was gone by the time we got there. The guy at the check in counter took at least 5 minutes to acknowledge that we... More

I changed rooms 3 times and still was disgusted about the condition of the room, bathroom, rust int he bathroom everywhere etc. Thankfully, it was only one night. We paid $ 98 for the room.... More

I had booked a room here in November 2013 through Expedia. Before I left on my trip, I read the horrible reviews and booked a second room at Best Florida Resort. I didn't realize that I was unable to cancel my reservation. After cruising I went to the Best Florida Resort and found out my room was flooded. So I... More
