“basic but excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We stayed for two nights 26-27 October prior to a cruise. Luis is so friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but spotlessly clean and the bed comfortable. It is right on the boardwalk and close to some great bars (nicks and Joes tiki bar). I would recommend this place to anyone for a break with a great location.

Stayed at this hotel for three nights. The room was clean, expected it to be very small as I had read on some other reviews, but the layout makes the room look bigger. Location is perfect, half a block away from the beach, even though during our stay the winds preceeding hurricane Sandy made the beach unbearable.
Best thing about this hotel is management, Luis the owner, goes out of his way to make your stay a pleasant experience. The only drawback, although noticed that it is common for other small hotels in the area, no ice machine on premises, so if you need ice you have to buy it.

I can't say enough good things about this place. I just spent 3 days and nights, and there isn't a single negative thing that I can offer about my stay. The area is very laid back, and has the feel of old Florida. The hosts, Luis and Josie, are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean, spacious, and inexpensive. The location is perfect...about a 30 second walk to the ocean front Broadwalk (which is a large pedestrian and bike only area that is loaded with restaurants, bars, shops, etc...). Villa Europa has courtyard tables, gas grills, bikes, beach chairs, beach towels, wi-fi, and on-site parking. It is so conveniently located that a car isn't even necessary...if you fly into Ft. Lauderdale, just take a taxi. Again, it's a great find!

We recently spent 4 nights at Villa Europa and it was awesome. We arrived a couple of hours later than we were anticipating due to delayed flights. We were welcomed by Josie with a big smile and a cold bottle of water. The room was perfect - clean and well equipped with everything we needed including beach towels. Use of the bicycles, beach chairs, and umbrellas was complimentary which was an added bonus. Location was just perfect - about 25 steps to the beach. We would absolutely stay here again.

We stayed one night at the Villa Europa in Hollywood Beach, Florida. Arrangements were made with our hosts for a late arrival. A weather delay caused our flight to be much later than expected. The hosts/managers/owners left our room ready and even returned to the hotel (as they don't reside on the premises) to make sure we got into our room and knew how to operate the airconditioning and provided other pertinent information. They were kind enough to allow us a late checkout in the early afternoon the next day. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel/location to anyone looking for a nice, clean place to stay with the nicest of hosts!

If you are looking for a pleasant, clean, relaxing accommodation, that is the place to go. The owners are perfect hosts: always courteous, helpful, kind - like staying at good friends. Parking is free, the beautiful beach is just a stone's throw away, our room was nicely arranged with a comfortable queensize bed, aircon, sat-hd-tv, well-working (hot&cold) shower. The free-wifi-internet also worked on the beach. They even offert us free bikes, free chairs and parasol for the beach. We really enjoyed our stay - so much, that we decided to stay longer and checking out late (at no extra cost) was no problem. For our next vacation in Florida I am sure where to stay for at least 3 days :-) - Felix & Corina

Small Boutique motel less than a few feet from the Atlantic. The owner and his wife could not have been more helpful. The room was VERY clean and contained everything we needed for our stay. The owner allowed us a late checkout at no extra cost after out rental car would not start. He offered us water. Phoned us and assured us a late check-in was possible. Oh, and BTW I did not mention this was all done during Tropical Storm force winds were blowing from Hurricane Sandy. All the reviews praising this place are true from our experience. If you want a clean, safe studio or room, at a very fair price, Villa Europa is the best choice. hablan español. One of the nicest travel experiences I've had. Convenient to Broward and Dade counties. You'll thank me, later. Really make you feel welcome and so helpful with so much information. When you get to know your hosts, you'll see how nice they are. If clean and well-appointed and value sound good to you, then come for a visit and see for yourself.
