The ONLY thing that this resort has going for it is location. Close enough to Fort Lauderdale and Miami beach and not too far from the airport (18 miles). However it is one of the few low rise resorts yet to be redeveloped and it's rather tired and lack lustre appearance show that it's redevelopment is long overdue. Facilities are... More

We are RCI members who stayed here ten years ago. The first time they stuck us in a studio that was in a run down area in back. I had brought crab legs that didn't fit in the under counter refrigerator. The front desk said sorry, no other rooms available. A call to RCI got us into a great unit... More

The resort is the only one around that does not make a big shadow in the ocean in the afternoon (because the hotels are so big). We stayed at the 5th floor in a one bedroom unit. It was clean when we arrived. We had a nice view, and the neighbours were quiet. The area is nice, there is a... More

Although the resort is a little dated, it was a great stay. We are local and frequent the south Florida beaches. Those that choose a beach resort only for the room are missing out on a great deal. You can stay at either resort to the left or right Aqualina and Trump Int'l for 4 times the cost. The room... More

stayed here using my timeshare week and loved it. The location was great it was in the center of everything several shopping malls nearby and easy to get too. It is about 20 min from South Beach just drive down Collins Ave. You could walk to a lot of shops. The room was good it was just your average room... More

I've been coming to the resort for the past 20+ years my mom is an owner. Throughout the years there has been changes for the best and worse. It's a hotel you would need to get used too. It's a bit old as it's been brought out by Trump only 2-3 years left before being demolished We own in building... More
