“We will definitely be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Everything was perfect...kids had some freedom due to the layout of the rooms and beach I was able to keep my eye on them without being joined at the hip. Loved the tiki bar, broadwalk, beach is so clean. Heidi, Amy and Sherry make you feel right at home.

6 of us stayed in 3 rooms for 3 nights prior to a cruise. Reading the reviews I didn't think it could be so perfect, It lived up to all expectations.If you have large cases and not fit have a ground floor room.

Room Tip: Room 8 is the largest with best views. Of the smaller rooms go for room 6

What a lovely place, views - spectacular.
Rooms, lovely - spacious and clean. We stayed in room 4 which is ground floor literally steps from the beach. Then moved to room 2 as we extended out stay and it was a smaller studio but again - lovely. Microwave/ coffee maker/free parking/free wifi - you could do with a car if you want to get about but get one and stay here. It's worth it.

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.
