We planned to 2 days at this place. We were given the room that had "just been remodeled". After one night We told the owner this was not up to standard and needed more work done and we were leaving. We were told we would get a refund for the night we didn't stay. The OLD dorm fridge was molded,... More

The room was clean and comfortable. It is obvious that the property needs work. Staff was friendly, courteous, and apologetic. Other guests were friendly. Quiet and safe. Give it a shot. The pool was nice and clean and steps from the beach. Beach and ocean are an arms throw away and the pier is a short walk down the beach.... More

The unit above our efficiency had been condemned, along with the outdoor staircase leading up to it. One of the doors was off, revealing a hot water heater. The outside of the whole place was falling apart, and there was rust everywhere. The window frames on our unit were all decayed and pieces falling off. On the inside, the draw... More

there were yellow fluorescent signs pasted to each second story door/entrance. i could not read word for word what the signs said, but i did manage to conclude that they were from the city of fort lauderdale and that no one was supposed to go near the second floor due to it's lack of habitability. that was after i checked...

I recently stayed at the Villa Caprice for two weeks of vacation from January 16 to February 1 2013. I have stayed here five times(this trip included) starting in the early 90's. To say I recognize this property now, is an understatement. It used to be a true jewel with beautifully kept grounds all around, a clean pool that was... More

It is like a little piece of heaven. I love when I can travel and go to the grocery store and cook in the room. The Kitchenette was perfect because we spent most of our days on the beach so we just made lunch and brought cocktails with and food with us. The Florida beaches are beautiful and the fact... More

We recently stayed a this hotel for 3 nights with my mother, step-father, aunt and uncle. The location is beachfront and is the best part about this place. The grouds are in dire need of repair and so is the staff at the front desk. Do NOT stay here.

I have stayed here for the last 4 years and the resort has been a mixed bag. I am booked in for the January but may cancel. Good points, Beach Front resort. Pool is allways clean and grounds are well kept but it seems the pool is allways "solar Heated" meaning the heats not working. Plenty of chairs around pool... More

I came to Lauderdale-By-The-Sea for a conference and stayed at the Villa Caprice for a few nights. The location is marvelous and quiet. I was given a very reasonable rate which included breakfast. The hotel has a lot of character and potential. I was notified by the staff (friendly) they are going to start renovations very soon which I am... More
