“GREAT VACATION! WE WERE ABLE TO RELAX!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

I just got back from a weeks vacation at the Hollywood Sands Resort. This hotel was very nice and very conveniently located near restaurants, ice cream shops, live music and beach all within walking distance. The pool is heated and always very clean. The rooms are also very clean and updated with a full size kitchen. I really enjoyed walking the boardwalk with the kids on their bikes going for pizza and ice cream. The location is wonderful and the fact that you have everything walking distance makes you able to relax and not have to drive out for anything. It's all there... the pool, the beach, the sand, a small water park for the kids to enjoy, live music from a nearby pub, and a cozy room with great cool a/c and clean bed after a nice hot day out in the sun... Bring your bikes, rollerblades, skateboard, sneakers, etc... The boardwalk is amazing!!!

However, management can be a little snotty when it comes to asking for towels, toilet paper and if you need to change the sheets, they ask: "why? what happen?" etc... They can be a bit ridiculous, but overall I still had a great time!

Room Tip: Make sure its on the first floor or at least second floor. They do not have an elevator its a 3 sto...

We used to stay in this resort when our daughter was younger. Haven't been here for over 10 years, but must say it's really nice. Newly renovated, great spot on the beach, the broadwalk is much better now than before. A real jewel

Room Tip: The building in front is by the pool, the building in back has a tiki hut and hot tub. The front is...

We were in town visiting family and we had a good stay. We found a great rate online so definitely look into that! It was cheaper than on the website. I can't remember the name of the site I booked on.. one of those travel sites. But they have a nice pool and the hotel is in a good location. The customer service was good not exceptional but I would say for the rate we were satisfied. They recommended a good local restaurant called Billy's Stone Crab that we really liked as well. We will prob stay here again when we are back in town next visiting.

Room Tip: They have a pool that is nice.

Went again in April. I hadn't been there in two years and won't make that mistake again!! Best beach property and at a great price. The staff were so accommodating. Especially Tami at the front desk. The guests and owners love it here and come back often. We will too.

Room Tip: We stayed in the front building but the back by the hot tub is good too.

So where do i start? First of all i have been a repeat guest at this resort because my stays there have been so good for my wife and I. we recently returned to the resort expecting more of the same...well it wasn't the same at all aparently the GM is not longer there, she really had this place running so smoothly, now that she is gone. We were not welcomed upon check in, the lady behind the desk seemed bothered that we were taking up her time (I think her name is Tammy), never got out of her chair. later in the week we wanted new towels, she directed us to the room in the hall to drop them off, not so helpful. I asked to speak to the manager, i was told she was not on site...come to think of it we never did see her there, maybe they don't have leadership anymore? is this the owners way of saving money in these tough times? If so they wont need to spend any payroll or overhead because with no guest who needs a staff? As for the staff they seemed to be all over with no unity very different than before, everyone seemed bothered or something. i have no plans on returning to this resort with other places on the beach i will find another spot, it is a shame because this place WAS GREAT NOT ANY MORE!!!

Room Tip: The Marriott next door!

My wife and I love Hollywood Beach, but we had never had the chance to stay right on the beach. We discovered the Hollywood Sands in a small hotel directory, and boy, did we make the right choice.

We stayed for a long weekend. The staff was cheerful and helpful and the other guests very warm and friendly. Can't beat the location - the Broadwalk is perfect for walking, jogging, or our daily in-line skates. We've always loved the mix of people and businesses along that beach.

Our unit was very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the hot tub, and sunning on the patio.

We liked it so much, we bought a week in one of the other units. Can't wait to go back with our children!
