This is a very decent hotel that has potential to become great. However, it is not a hotel for everyone because its can be either considered pros or cons which explains some of the mixed reviews you will see. This hotel is ideal for big conventions/business meetings. It's location is very good, close to the Ft Lauderdale Airport, directly on the beach, has a decent swimming pool, acceptable gym room, good conferencing space and good restaurants/social spaces to please big groups. It is much less of a family resort, unless your family is happy with just the beach and pool activities. It is quite isolated and you really need a car to go elsewhere. Parking is pricy at $25 for self parking, more for valet. Room furnishing are in good condition but dated. Sound insulation is not good. Internet charges are annoying. Gym is a bit ackwardly configured but is decently equipment. Various classes on the beach are available for a supplement, eg: boot camp, etc but are free for members. Bottom line, good for business meeting not so much as a family resort.
