The photos of this hotel are wonderful and if you can find just the right spot to stand, you can actually see the hotel that looks like this. If I wanted a glamor shot, I'd hire this photographer. Reality is diffferent and from most spots the hotel looks like many of the people in South Florida: trying to fight its... More

I had stayed 1 night before a flight back to Baltimore and I have only positive things to report. I stayed on the first floor (127) and enjoyed the layout of the room and the conveniences that it had. A small kitchen, table w/ 2 chairs, great shower, comfortable queen bed, picnic table w/ umbrella right outside the door. I... More

For our third trip to Hollywood beach Cindy and I decided to split our stay between 2 small hotels on the boardwalk/beach side. After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided on 3 days here, and 3 days at our favorite hotel a few blocks away(Villa Europa).Upon arrival the woman at the front desk was wonderful and let us...

Initially I was able to follow up with them to confirm my arrangements. Moments before boarding my flight I received a call that they "changed my room" . It was an actual down grade (smaller bed & near the tiki hut). They did offer to refund the balance but that was not helpful. Well..after I got upset, raised my voice... More

A really nice, quality resort with the conveniences of home. We had a very restful evening in comfort and relaxation. The rooms were clean and quiet. The hotel was right on the beach and had their own pareking area.

I guess my first clue that things weren't going to be so good was my husband stepping on a live bug as soon as we entered the room. The room was clean, however, the glasses in the cabinet were filthy. Not to mention, I paid for 2 extra people, and this unit had a table with 2 chairs, and enough... More

This place is nice, remodeled and very convenient. The only reason why Im giving it 3 stars is because we had an issue with our unit where about 7 rooms had no ac. We gave the front desk girl more then enough time to get the situation fixed, and what does she do? she closes the office and goes home.... More

Even though the Resort has no water view, it is a few yards from the Boardwalk. Very centrally located to restaurants and stores. The resort has its own Tiki bar. Rooms are extremely clean and recently remodeled. The office personnel readily to help. I left behind the power cord to my Bluetooth speaker and they called me to let me... More

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights while in Ft. Lauderdale for a family emergency. We arrived at 12am which wasn't a problem. They had a lock-box on our room's door knob with the key. The room itself was cute and for the most part, clean. There was some sand in the bed and on the floor. The... More
