“Nice and Quiet!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

The hotel is kind of off the beaten path and more or less in a residential neighborhood. The Mosaic in the hotel lobby is amazing and the staff was friendly. Our room was clean and very nice.
The very large balcony over looking the pool was perfect! In all honesty my mother and I could not have asked for a nicer room. We enjoyed the view from the room as we relaxed on the balcony...resting before our cruise. We did walk down the beach toward the Ritz and it is quite a way slogging through sand to get to local eats (we ended up taking a cab back). The only down side to the hotel was the pool. We only stayed one night. After a good nights rest we hopped down to the pool very early (8am) for a dip. A pool attendant was placing towels and various magazines on all the chairs surrounding the pool. We were scolded at 8am for using the hotel towels and sitting on chairs surrounding the pool. How were we to know the entire pool was reserved for a group. We were the only ones down there for the most part. I really don't think its fair to other paying customers (who were in a suite mind you) that all the prime seating is taken at the pool. It is a fairly large and winding pool, reserve a section for the group, not every seat surrounding the immediate pool.

On a lighter note. The hotel is close to the cruise terminal (not with in walking distance but a short ride nonetheless). It's a lovely hotel in a very quiet neighborhood. There is a large and expansive beach for the hotel, not to mention a pool bar. The bathroom in our suite was large and spacious. The living room, large and spacious....and the balcony...superb!

Room Tip: It seemed to me, all rooms had a good view. Mid hotel over looking the pool was great.

If you're lucky enough to know the magic numbers to open the gate at La Casa Del Mar, it will open to a Shangri La Oasis.
A boutique hotel a block away from the ocean. Warm and inviting, small and cozy
The rooms are clean and full of character.
Wonderful small touches are everywhere; in your room; little nooks to hide in and about the shadows of the hotel; and beautiful landscaping is everywhere. Even the pool is cool.
What a wonderful place to read a while, or write that book at last, or to lounge under the sun till you are a beautiful topaz brown.
A great place for lovers. A great place for loners. A great place to discover
All you need is the magic numbers, to open the gate
Enjoy! I did.

We arrived a couple hours earlier and the staff was very accommodating to let us in before check in time. The hotel is walking distance to many restaurants and a cheap cab ride away from Las Olas Bldv. The hotel has two pools, plenty of towels that you can use at the beach and some beach chair and umbrellas that you can also take to the beach. The only issue we had was parking. there ar not enough parking spots and if you get back after 10pm, you will probably have to park next door at the Westin Parking lot - the hotel will cover the cost though. Overall a great stay!

I just returned from my stay June 28-July 2nd. The room was lovely, the pools and grounds were gorgeously landscaped and the staff couldn't be more eager to please, helpful and friendly. I might just spend the week of my 40th here at the end of July!

We had another great stay at the La Casa Del Mar. Great service, clean rooms, close to the beach, and a friendly staff. The rooms have been recently updated and the pool area is always clean and well maintained.

Very cool low key place to relax. Great location just a block from the beach. Really pretty lush pool area with palm trees and flowering plants. Stayed with a girl friend and we couldn't have had a more relaxing yet fun time. Grilled some steaks on the rooftop sundeck/lounge area...being fitness conscious it's very convenient to be able to cook/grill so you don't have to go out to eat every meal. We will definitely be back again!

Room Tip: All the rooms are a little different so definitely ask for what you need...beds, kitchen, etc.

This hotel was perfect for our weekend getaway! Just one block from the ocean and water taxi and a couple a blocks from small shops and restaurants this is truly a gem. The pool is beautiful and clean, the pool lounges are comfortable and nice. And there are towels, chairs and umbrellas available for you to talk to the beach. The rooms were great with little kitchenettes and comfortable beds.
