On July 13, 2014, I contacted this hotel via e-mail as to availability for a planned three week stay January or February of 2015. I advised that our plans were fluid and we could be flexible on exact dates. The next day I received a reply that they would need our "exact" dates before they could advise of availability and...

Long story short…my husband booked us a week at Costa del Sol… which I reluctantly agreed to. The staff was very accommodating and friendly, the room was average but clean, the salt water pool was small but extremely clean, the beach was literally on-site, the pier was close by and numerous shops and restaurants were a short walk away. I... More

We loved this place, will go back in a heartbeat. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars, is that it isn't a five star hotel, with 5 star furnishings, it is more like 3 star. But, if you're good with that (and we were) then you will love it here! We stayed in two different units, 212. The... More

We are currently staying at Costa del Sol. We absolutely love it! Only 3 floors ... around 40 rooms. The view from our room is spetacular! We have a balcony over looking the pool ... and just steps away from the beach. It's an older property, but it's squeaky clean and has everything we need! King bed ... tv in... More

The condo was right on the beach with excellent view of the ocean from our balcony. Check in was easy. The staff was nice and friendly. The pool and property looked clean and well kept. We took a short walk to eat dinner and shop nearby. It was nice to have free WiFi in the room. This is our first... More

This would definitely be rated a 5 in my book if two things could be addressed. First the staff was not very attentive and second the room needed some upgrades. Those were really all that I can nitpick about. This is an excellent location that is a small establishment in between mile after mile of large condo buildings. It is... More

This is a very nice place to stay with everything in close range. I do think they have taken the no smoking policies a bit to extreme as this is a no smoking facility. I don't consider myself a big smoker but I do like to have a smoke with an occassional drink while relaxing on a balcony when on... More

This is a fantastic little place right on the beach. Have been coming here for a number of years and more impressed everytime we are here. It is a very comfortable, well maintained and clean property. The location is spectacular - right on the beach overlooking the ocean and close to the shops and restaurants of Lauderdale By The Sea.... More

We stayed at this location for 12 days. The first 7 days we had a first floor corner unit, with a partial view of the ocean, next to the pool. The unit was clean and comfortable. At 6'1" I found the bed to be a little short for me. On the other hand, the location is great. The staff was... More
