I stay at this hotel several days a week currently and love it. At breakfast you sit and look across the street at the ocean, at night you walk out the front door and have your toes in the sand within 10 seconds and the staff have always been really friendly and helpful. The rooms are nicely furnished and the bedding is very comfortable. There is a pier right across from the hotel which for a $1 you can walk out on and for $3 you can fish. I believe you can rent fishing equipment if you need it, not sure of cost. At night it's really cool because the pier is also lighted underneath so you can easily see the fish and little kids love to check out the fish as they come over the railing. The location is only 25 minutes from FLL airport and you are just south of Boca Raton (really nice restaurants and shopping). The pool is relatively small so if you have kids who like the huge pools this is not a good choice. The food at the restaurant is good, drinks are well poured and the staff again are enjoyable (one of our servers this morning came up to each of us and wished us a safe trip home).
