Sunny Isles vs Hollywood Beach

What are the differences? I was originally looking at booking into the Trump or somewhere similar in Sunny Isles. Then I saw the area in Hollywood with the broadwalk and no cars on the street, etc. That appealed to me more so than the high rises of sunny isles.

Any input is appreciated! Thank you!

1. Re: Sunny Isles vs Hollywood Beach

We have stayed in both Sunny Isles and Hollywood Beach.

Hollywood Beach has a high-rise section and a low-rise (mom & pop) section. If you have a car you have access to the greater Miami area from both locations, without a car Sunny Isles might be the better choice if you want to travel outside the immediate area.

The beach is excellent at both. Hollwood Beach does have many dining options on the "broadwalk" and along the intracoastal side that are very reasonably priced - Sunny Isles offers more choices upscale to inexpensive and there are a few low rise hotels still around, such as Golden Strand.

Bus service is good in both - Hollywood Beach as the No. 4 and No 28 along the main street - the race track /casino and Aventura Mall can be reached by bus from both locations.

-Sunny Isles has the S, E and 120 and the free shuttle.

Thank you! We will have a car so not worried about transportation. A realtor was telling me Sunny Isles is sooo much nicer than Hollywood but I guess it depends on what you're after. He was trying to rent me a condo in Sunny Isles, so he is a bit biased. :)

We're considering a mom and pop kind of place for the first time ever. The kids have never stayed anywhere like that and thought it might be nice for a change. We're only there for 4 nights, post-cruise, so the idea of smaller crowds and no elevators is rather enticing. Now to find a place!

Thanks again!

Have you checked the "Vacation Rentals" at the top of the page or "Hotels" on the Hollywood Beach,Fl forum?
