Great beach resort, clean and comfortable apartment with full kitchen. Very safe and secure lock system on doors and windows. Great staff, specially Marissa always with a smile and very frienly as well as Maria. Best price in Lauderdale by the sea. We had a wonderful time. Highly recommended.

Every vacation (past 10 years) to Ft. Lauderdale by the Sea, my husband and I stay at Dee Jays Resort. We love the location, restaurants and the great service that Dee Jay's staff provides. We are looking forward to our next trip. Sarah and Wes Anderson

The room was not clean. We had a 2 inch cockroach in the kitchen. Linens were stained. We had $450 stolen from a wallet hidden in the dresser drawer. We also found that 3 other rooms had been robbed. Talked to a detective and were informed that 6 students from a swim team were also robbed in 12/14. There was... More

We are truly disappointed that your stay this year at the Dee Jay Beach Resort was less than optimal. For almost a decade, we have enjoyed having you as a repeat guest every March. We can not stress the importance of locking unattended rooms while visiting the pool or enjoying the beach. In addition, all rooms are equipped with digital... More

We love the El Mar Area and it is so hard to get a nice place at a reasonable price. We were 2 blocks north of the Pier and right by 2 Beach Portals so it was easy to get to the water. Maria went out of her way to make our stay excellent and she succeeded! We were only... More

My husband and I found this place online and called to book it. Pictures online looked ok, but they must have been 15 years old. Maria, who we spoke to and checked us in was very nice, but the place was very old, run down, dirty and not what it looked like online. The price was high for the shape... More

My family and I have been staying at this motel for years, specially for spring break or Independence Day weekend. We usually get about 3/4 different rooms. We absolutely love it here. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for. But the privacy they give is incredible. The pool is amazing.

I was so pleasantly surprised by this place. Yes it's old. But our room was immaculate and there was plenty of room for two adults a child and two dogs. They do have tiled rooms (just a handful) that are rented to pet owners. But above all, the owners were friendly and responsive to all of our needs. And if... More

I have had the worst most violating experience with this hotel. They gave my personal information from my check-in and name, address, phone and credit card info to a friend of the hotel employees. Do not go. they will violate your privacy. Ruined my vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
