Our ship returned on Sunday at 7:00am and we disembarked @ 10:00am, got a cab and headed to the Villa Europa expecting to just have the office store our bags until our room was ready. Our cab driver didn't know the exact location so I called and got the directions from Luis. The hotel is actually closer to Port Everglades than we expected. Luis had arranged to have a room cleaned and waiting for us--what a surprise! Luis is great, he gave us maps and recommended a few 'to do things'. The Villa Europa is located steps from the beach and boardwalk and has several bikes for guests to use. Our room was clean, a little small but fine for our two night stay. My only disappointment was the walls are thin so plan to hear conversations from the room next door. Also I am partial to fluffy, large bath towels and ours were not of a good quality but they were clean. If your expecting a fitness room, spa, pool, etc this is not the place for you; It is not that type of hotel. However, if you appreciate good old fashion hospitality and want to enjoy the boardwalk and be steps away from the beach this place is perfect!
