As an Owner of a unit at Costa Del Sol in Lauderdale-by-the Sea for the past 33 years, I will have to tell you that we just love this place! We come every year around the July 4th week and just spend all of our time on the beach and enjoy having a truly relaxing vacation. We do not go... More

Nice room (suite) with L/R & dinette combination and kitchen with a bar & two stools. Nice outdoor patio. We were literally about 30' from hot tub, 50' from pool, & 80' from beach. Very clean & well maintained & pool area chairs cleaned & straightened every morning. Huge gas grille about 35' from our room & was big enough... More

The best thing about Costa del Sol is the location. Right on the beach with beautiful sunrises viewed right from our balcony. It was literally a 5 minute walk to the main drag with shops, restaurants and good ol' Walgreens liquor lol (Yeah, we don't have that in PA!) And you simply must throw a swim cover on one day...

Let me start off by saying I wish I had good things to say but such as life. My experience at the front desk went well but then my family and me went to our room OMG what a dump. There staring me in the face was this red cloth 1970s worn out furniture. No lie there were stains on... More

Stayed a full week at Costa Del Sol. We were introduced because friends of ours own a timeshare here, so we booked the same week they were there. Each room is actually a fully functioning apartment: full dining room table, LR, bedroom and kitchen. The bath is accessible from the bedroom and LR/DR/Kitchen area. We had a king room, which...

Just got back from a week stay at Costa del Sol. I was a little apprehensive. I had requested a specific room and because we were on a cruise, would not be able to check in until a day later on Sunday. I called ahead and was assured it would be ok but you know how that is. Upon arriving,... More

I happen to own one of these units and am very happy to say they do their best to keep this place up to date ( I know my maintenance fee keeps rising). They are always replacing and updating their units. It is not a fancy Marriott but you will pay less, enjoy the location and there are so many... More

Last year, we had a large party stay at a hotel just north of this property. When we tried to book again this year, they were booked so we had to look elsewhere. We found this property that was able to take care of our large party and we all loved this place better then the other. We took about... More

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.
