“Great little hide-away!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

If you want a unique, quiet, peaceful little place with beautifully kept grounds and a superb location - this is a place to be. I avoid chain hotels, so this place was perfect! So happy we found it. Extremely close to the beach, all of the restaurants, water taxi. The service was friendly and accommodating. Other guests seemed to have been there for the same reason, avoiding mediocracy of the chain hotels and receiving some well deserved R&R.
Thank you, La Casa Del Mar staff!

If you hate corporate hotels, this is a great place to stay. The welcome was warm, the rooms were clean and comfortable. And it was great to have our own kitchenette for making breakfast. It felt like a lot of thought had gone into the little details. We loved the beautiful tranquil pool area (although the weather was too poor for sunbathing or swimming), the plentiful comfy chairs in the grounds for lounging in, and the free wifi. Overall, a lovely little place to rest your head.

We Loved our stay at La Casa Del Mar! The hotel is located a block from the beach and everyday we looked forward to those few steps to the ocean :) what we enjoyed the most. Our room had a great view, quiet and comforting. The overall quality was great! We will most definetly return.

My husband & I spent 2 nights here pre cruise.
This is one of the quietest places I have ever slept in. When we arrived early,we were allowed to check in because our room was ready. The room was very large, with a comfy couch, small table and kitchenette. We chose to eat out all our meals since there were a variety of restaurants to choose from just a few blocks away.
Upon request, 2 sand chairs and an umbrella were provided for the beach which is a short block away. The staff was welcoming, friendly and very informative. The next time we go back to Ft. Lauderdale we most definitely will book this charming hotel again.

I would highly recommend this place. It's got a great old Florida feel to the place. The rooms are all a bit different,which is nice change from staying in the corparate conformity of the big chains. Geat location, just a block from the ocean. There are two pools and a very nice roof top sundeck.
.Every person I dealt with was very friendly, From Cheryl the owner, to Lou at the front desk, to Maggie in housekeeping, they were all gracious and accomadating. A special thanks has to go to Geraldo at the front desk. We had twenty three guests in for a birthday and he was so helpful and pleasent with every issue that arose.I can't wait to go back.

Just returned from a lovely Fort Lauderadale bed and breakfast called La Case Del Mar. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The place was quiet, clean and less than a block away from the beach, local shops and restaurants. We enjoyed our stay and will definately be back there in June! My niece and I had a great time! Lou your the best! :)

Room Tip: We had two queen size beds over looking the pool, room 8.

This was our second vacation at La Casa Del Mar. We could not have been more pleased with the facility, service, location and staff. Cheryl and staff, Geraldo, Tom, Lew, Maggie, Alex and Maria provided us a very friendly and personable environment for our stay.

Our room was large and very comfortable. All the other guests that we met were very friendly. The location is awesome. It's just a short walk to the beach and a short walk to restaurants and all the action on A1A. The Galleria Mall is also within walking distance.

La Casa Del Mar has a quiet and easy "old Florida charm" about it that we found extremely relaxing. I cannot compliment Cheryl and her excellent staff enough. We intend to return next December. We have no hesitation in recommending La Casa Del Mar to our family, friends and associates!!
