“Interesting experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I must say this hotel was very interesting. I loved the look and the main lobby level appeal. It has restaurants and different themed bars. I really dig places that give people options. Being right of the beach was amazing to have the waves hitting and so much being catered to you by the staff. We were given coupons for the stay which included restaurant coupons etc. We were allowed to check in to our room early with no issues as a starwood preferred member and even stayed on the Starwood Floor. Our room was nice as a whole. The location we were put in raised an eyebrow because we were the last room on the top floor which didn't feel very safe because those rooms were outside. Nonetheless my locks worked well. They also provide complimentary bottled water which was just fine with me. I loved the swim up pool and bar service. From one of the bars you could watch people dance and swim while your inside the hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room in the tower where all rooms are inside the main building is possible.

I stayed in the Marina building Sept. 20 -23. Nice room, comfortable king bed, a/c worked well. No fridge or microwave. The beach pool was nice even though we didn't get a chance to use it due to the constant rain that weekend. The hotel is on the beach, and the hotel provides free beach chairs. Very good value for a beach location.

Room Tip: Dos Cominos will heat your food in their microwave after you sign a waiver. Also, the hotel is a...

Great location right on the beach and that is the main selling point of this hotel. On the very far south end of the Fort Lauderdale beach strip. A bit of a walk to get to the action areas, but very doable. Pool area by the beach was the best I've been to in the area. Ate at the mexican place in the hotel and it was a bit expensive but the food was good.

Rooms are a bit dated, and if they upgade these in the future I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

This is my 3rd stay and would recommend this hotel to family and friends. We had a 7th floor ocean view in the south tower and it was awesome. The staff are friendly and efficient. Check in/out is a breeze. The pools are really nice, lots of towels and very clean. The beach staff are friendly and helpful. We ate lunch by the beach pool and it was great. The fitness center has lots to offer. The hotel location is perfect because it is at the end of the strip. The beach walk is a nice walk/run in the morning. The one flaw is parking. It is expensive to self park and the fees are in addition to the stay. If parking was included I would give it five stars!

Room Tip: The south tower ocean view is beautiful because we were on the 7th floor and in a corner room.

My best friend and I take a trip at least once a year. This fall, we decided to take a post-Labor Day trip to the beach. What an awesome hotel! Our Expedia-booked room was on the third floor of the South Tower. It was very adequate, with good features and a partial view of the ocean.

This particular hotel has four structures (counting the parking garage - $20/day self park // $25/day valet) and is connected by SkyBridges and corridors. The Beach Tower, however, is separate and only accessible by using a sidewalk.

There are two pools, one in the Clipper Building (looks like a ship, pool and other outdoor amenities meant to resemble those found on cruise ship) and an infinity pool near the restaurant/bar and the ocean at the Beach Tower. Staff is on hand to provide beach lounge chairs, towels, and cabanas, and the beach access is fantastic.

We spent hours on the beach and in the water, and relaxed in the evenings either near the infinity pool or down SR A1A where many restaurants and other amenities are located within walking distance.

This location was perfect for our trip -- it's not a five star property by any means, but very sufficient.

One drawback? No airport shuttle to FLL or MIA.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Beach Tower, while benefiting from a better view, appeared to be more dated. Choose a R...

Our location is ideal, as we are one of the few hotels actually located on Fort Lauderdale Beach and in close proximity to local restaurants, the cruise port, and unique shopping. Thank you again for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back to Sunny Fort Lauderdale!

I had reserved two rooms: one for me and the other for my daugther and her family. I checked-in at 3:30 PM (hotel check-in time is 3:00PM) and was told the rooms were being cleaned. After patiently waiting for one hour, I was told the rooms were still not available. Finally,, at 5:30 I was told the rooms were ready. I assumed this meant both rooms were ready but when my daughter arrived at 6:00PM with her two tired small children and checked-in, she was told the second room was not ready! Two hours later, at 8:00 PM, she was informed that the room was ready. We witnessed another guest experiencing the same situation so it appears our experience was not unique.The least a guest with confirmed reservations can expect from a hotel is for the room to be ready after the hotel's stated check-in time. This hotel is advertised as the best hotel for families in Ft Lauderdale Beach but I would never recommend it. The staff is nice but the management of the hotel is very poor.

The people who work there are very nice but the hotel is in need of a facelift. The first room I was in the carpet completely wet throughout the room. The staff was very nice and switched my room to the 6th floor. This floor can only be accessed via stairs. The outside of the building looks like a ship and so does the inside - run down, been out to sea too long ship.

The room was very beautiful thought with floor to ceiling windows patio. It is not located close to bars and restaurants if you are wearing high heels.

Room Tip: The 6th floor and above seem to be the best but you do have to take the stairs to get there.
