One of the best free breakfasts that come with a normal hotel room. They had scrambled eggs, waffles (make your own), and 2 meats -either sausage and ham or sausage and bacon- every day. Also 4 cereals, breads, bagels, etc. Fresh fruit including bananas, apples, oranges. They rotated the sausage and cream sauce stuff (that is put over biscuits) and cream of wheat.
The rooms were regular and the pool was the normal hotel type pool. I ordered lunch there once - typical bar type food that the bartender preps by putting in the microwave. They tag on the 18 percent gratuity when you have to go to the bar to order it and go there also to pick it up. Obviously I would eat lunch out.
Parking hits you up for $10.60 per day. They probably should just raise the room rates $10. You pay to park anywhere along the Ft Lauderdale beach front where the hotel is anyway.
Big down fall for me - no exercise room. Didn't like that. Probably would have only rated it a 3 above except the breakfast is that good.
As to the few complaints I see they have most center on the hotel not being right on the beach. It is not. For the price and the short walk it is a better alternative. You are extremely close and anyone not willing the walk the couple extra steps probably doesn't belong on a beach to begin with.
It is walking distance to the "Jungle Cruise" boat ride and multiple fishing charters at the Bahia Mar Marina. We walked to Sea Experience Scuba Diving every day with 2 sets of dive gear so it is not far.
