“We will be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Everyone staying at Kira-Mar, including us, is a repeat guest. That obviously says something. Quiet and clean place, great pool, BBQ grills, picnic tables, free laundry. Since it is a small complex, everything is within 10 steps from your room. Managers Reggie and Nathalie live on site, so you know they are going to be make sure their own "home" is nice, and they achieve their goal of making everyone feel like they are family! Room security not even an issue since Natalie is the only one who ever cleans our room! Can walk to downtown or beach. Always take advantage of the breakfast that they set out by the pool. Already planning our next trip from Michigan to Kira-Mar!

We thought the place was nice and decorated well. But we didnt get a decent nights sleep and forget about sleeping past 6am...the noisy from the street and construction was so bad that I could never stay there again. It also caters to the older crowd. There wasnt an ice machine or a soda machine to get a drink if you needed one. The pool was heated tho and that was a plus. Overall not bad, but if you are a light sleeper or like to sleep in or party around the pool, this isnt the place.

Room Tip: There are no one bedrooms that dont face the street. So unless you are renting a two bedroom suite...

Thank you very much for your review and we are sorry there was so much noise from the neighboring properties during your stay. This usually is never a problem but unfortunately the property across the street was doing major construction during your stay with us and we look forward to it being complete soon. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again when the construction is complete and we will do everything in our power to make sure your stay is fantastic. All the Best, The Kira-Mar Team

Our third stay at Kira Mar and it gets better and better.
Location is just great, walking distance to Las Olas shopping and dining, walking distance with gorgeous views to the Beach.
The apartment is decorated really nice with lovely details. The grounds are well kept, nice vegetation, lovely views.
Reggie and Nathalie are there to make sure you have a perfect relaxed vacation.
But above all, there are such good vibes and positive energy that we can't think of a better place to stay when visiting Fort Lauderdale.

This is a gem of a hotel, actually it is a diamond without any flaws. Natalie and her husband, Reggie are the most wonderful, and accommodating hosts that I have ever met. Many times I travel alone, and I always feel safe and secure. This is very important. Breakfast is free, and it is amazing! The rooms are impeccably clean. If you need a beach chair, extra towel,. doing your laundry is free. It is a little sanctuary, and the prices are most reasonable. You are on Las Olas Blvd. Great shopping, food, and just a beautiful place. I treasure my time here, and have been to Fort Lauderdale several times. A friend stopped down 4 years ago, and loved it. It is warm, beautiful, cozy and inviting. Love this place, and Natalie and Reg. You are a stones throw away from South Beach, Boca Raton Town Center, and Miami, but Ft. Lauderdale has so much to offer. Treat yourselves, because Southwest has one direct flight to and from Ft Lauderdale form Albany, NY. Enjoy!

My parents found this little hide-away almost by dumb luck. I live on the same street as the hotel and didn't even know it was a hotel, looks more like an apartment complex. The place was well-kept, with a certain Floridian, art deco charm (if you live here you know what I am talking about). It had a nice pool, well-lit at night with nice lounge chairs/grills. Faces one of the little waterways from the intercostal and in a quiet neighborhood so adds a sense of tranquility not found in many other areas. Parents mentioned the staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. The room was simple, but when you will be spending most of your time out who cares right? The best part is the location, off of LAS OLAS!! This in my opinion is where you want to be, close enough to take a taxi to all of Fort Lauderdale's action!!!!

We were there for 6 nights with our 3 young girls and we had an excellent time. Natalie and Reggie were excellent hosts and we couldn't be happier with the set up and accommodations. We stayed in Unit 3 and it was perfect with the kids. Kitchen was up to date and we could watch the kids swim from right outside our door. Everything about this place was wonderful -- clean, great price, and friendly service. We will definitely be back!!

I stayed at this property for two nights. It is very clean, in a good location and the pool is nice. The managers were attentive as well. I expected more of a water view (hence the name waterfront villas). I asked about that when checking in and was told that there is only one two- bedroom unit with a water view in the complex.
