“Perfect spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

Loved the Walkabout! Perfect location for restaurants and beach. In one word the staff is FABULOUS! Will be going back to this gem of a resort. The suite/apartment we had was perfect. Loved having the Tiki Bar for a quick refreshment.

Stayed here with a large group of 13 right after christmas for 5 nights. The service is outstanding. Heidi and Mary treated us like family at the Tiki bar and Sherry made sure we had everything we needed for our room. My teenage daughters loved the hotel and have already asked when we could go back. The views of the beach are wonderful. Everyone treated us like old friends. Hollywood is a gem of a place and there is no where else I'd rather stay than the Walkabout.

Room Tip: Rooms 1,2,7 and 8 are 2 room suites.

We stayed in room 1 from 12/26-12/31. This is our second time staying here- first time was in 11/09. The location is perfect. Having the tiki bar there is lots of fun! I stayed with my 2 kids but my parents and extended family stayed in other rooms. We all could meet at the tiki bar and the kids could run around and play. The staff are wonderful. Heidi and Mary were wonderful to us. Sherry made sure we had everything we needed.
The locals in Hollywood are a close knit group. We were welcomed there like old friends. On two different nights they had celebrations at the Tiki Bar for two different people (a birthday party for Sherry and a memorial for a friend that passed on) and lots of people came and brought food. We were invited to join them, eat their food and celebrate with them. The hospitality is wonderful. The resort is Art Deco funky, beachy, clean and the rooms are big with great views! I'll be back again.

We checked in to the first floor suite with ocean view on Dec 21 and stayed for 3 nights. Right off the bat we were impressed with the courtesy of the front desk staff, the cleanliness and the location. We knew we made a good decision. The Tiki bar was delightful and the young lady working there provided great service. The housekeeping staff was superior and one of the women even put my laundry in the dryer for me, above and beyond. Parking was convenient as well. The hotel is in a less congested area of the beach but only a mile from the "action" where food and restaurants are located. When we come back to Hollywood, we will not stay any place else. Exceptional!

I made a reservation here for one night after a cruise out of Port Everglades. This hotel is a gem on the broadwalk. We went straight to the hotel right after getting off the ship. The check in was really easy and they let us get into our room early. The tiki bar in the patio area is wonderful and a great place to watch Sunday football among good company. The room was exceptionally clean and large. We stayed in unit 1 that has a bedroom and a small efficiency kitchen. We loved the location, staff, and facility so much that we made reservations to return for a week in March. Can't wait to come back!!

Room Tip: Choose units one or eight.

We arrived to a warm welcome and great recommendation to Nicks for a bite to eat. Our room #4 had a superb view and was nicely appointed, clean and comfortable. Loved having a kitchen for morning coffee ready for us to use. Afterseeing the best sunrise ever we explored the area on rented bicycles we were ready for a swim and were happily given towels to use for our swim! The beach is nice and steps from the door! Loved the location right on the broad walk and owners and staff were fantastic!! We will stay here in the future for sure!!
