My husband and I frequent Hollywood beach about 4-7 times a year. We have stayed at several different properties at various times....including the #1 rated property. Truth be told we feel this is, without question, THE best of the bunch. We are referring to "Sea Downs" which is directly on the Broadwalk, and beach front. (Bougainvellea has same owners yet not beach front....different property all together) The rooms all have ocean views. Very clean (Sue, house keeper terrific). Beds very comfy, a/c worked great. Kitchen very nicely equipped, GREAT coffee maker. Room quiet at night, no noise from activity on the Broadwalk. Location can't be beat. Close enough to the main drag and hub of activity should you desire ....or far enough away to be at the quieter part of the beach. You can walk in a short time to get to any part of Broadwalk or ride a bike. The outdoor patio area is lovely. Great tables and loungers to relax. Enough room for all of the quests. In addition,each room has an outdoor table and two chairs should you crave a bit more privacy. Sea Downs provides beach chairs and umbrellas for the guests. The owner was kind enough to bring us an umbrella as when we arrived they were all in use. A very kind gesture. Nothing is provided, other than small bars of soap, as far as toiletries go.......which is smart. So bring your own stuff. Also nothing provided as far as coffee, paper towels and so forth in your kitchen (other places do provide these things). No big deal as these things are easy to obtain two seconds away, at a reasonable cost should you desire them. They do however provide dish towels for washing of glasses, cups etc. The pool is a plus.....right behind the property... clean, nice temperature, loungers. The owners are on site, which is a plus. They are great. We loved the fact that they were in the vicinity yet they were not vying for everyone's attention, as we have found in the past (at another property)....which was a major turn off for us.
We certainly look forward to future visits at this property. It is obvious from the moment you arrive at the property the owners truly care about the guests and the property.
We like the upstairs rooms!
