“great place- relaxing, nice pool, beautiful view, close to excitement”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2010

A very relaxing spot to get away, yet close to excitement if that is what you desire. Have been there as a couple and with our grandchildren. Worked great both times. Nice pool just outside of the condo door. Beautiful deck to sleep, read, catch the sun, visit with others. Marvelous yachts come through the intercoastal water way- fun to observe. Can catch the water taxi and get to lots of other places from the deck. Close to the ocean where you can swim, watch people or walk. Also near to big hotels, fun boutiques, great eating. Condo is very satisfactory with good sleeping and facilities to do your own cooking or snacking if desired. Can't wait to go back again. C/C - Iowa

Our stay at Holiday Isle met with all our expectations. The location is very quiet and the grounds are beautiful. The staff is very friendly. Just ask and they give you ideas for restaurants, shopping, and good sight-seeing locations. It is nice to wave to the water taxi to stop right at the premises to go south downtown or to restaurants to the north. The condo we stayed in was very neat and accommodating. The kitchen was well supplied with all that I needed for us to cook in or grill on the grill out near the waterway. The elevator gives access to the 2nd and 3rd floors. Maid service was available and clean towels are available for the asking on a daily basis. We will definitely be back.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2008

My husband and I stayed at the Holiday isle Yacht Club 1 week in october. It was as part of a 3 week stay in the States.

It was a great over all.

Location of the complex is right on the river, you can just jump on the watertaxi (which will stop if you wave for it). The beach is two blocks the other way, and take 5 min to walk there. A long the beach tjere is a wonderful sidewalk with lots of cafés etc. I recomend going to sunday brunch at a hotel i.e that has a beachview.

The pool is heated to 26 degrees celcius. The appartment was clean and well maintained. All the comforts of home. A maid came once, but can be order every day (at an extra charge).

For families this is a great choice. No noice, quiet neighbourhood.

Not for party-goers or luxury fans :-)

29 condos owned mostly by Scandinavian owners. The best value in the area where you can walk to the beach. Loved the convenience of the kitchen. Staff is very friendly and gives you towels and advice on everything from the supermarkets to sightseeing.
Water taxi can be waved in from the dock.
As the property is right on the canal expect to save a lot on dining as the guests at the condos mostly grill their own food and enjoy the view. 2 grills are present.

If you want the luxury resort this is not for you but if you need convenience of the kitchen and the pool you can see from the window of your condo then definitely consider. I would come again!
The maid cleaned and took out trash daily and made our beds.
The bathroom is on a small side but the condo in general is more spacious than you would get anywhere in Fort Lauderdale for this very reasonable price.

  • Liked — The view of the canal
  • Disliked — Most of the guests speak no English (Scandinavian people)
