“GREAT LOCATION & PAR FOR LIFESTYLE BUT NOT A "RESORT"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Spent a number of days here recently and found it overall a satisfactory experience. Despite the negative claims of some previous reviews, we did not see one cockroach and there were only a few single men lurking around that kept to themselves. The property is old, but there have been renovations that bring it to an average status by today's standards - rooms about the same quality as Hedo. The rooftop pool is a great feature, and the location is within 1 block of a great beach and 5 miles of the clothing optional Haulover Beach. The service is ok and the breakfast is no more than advertised. There was a variety of clientle in race, age, and eco-status. The Friday & Saturday night parties were sub-par by lifestyle standards with low attendance and poor food options. Although the DJ was great with the tunes, there was little in the form of emcee or hosting provided to facilitate the mingling desired at these parties. With other options available in the area that offer a much better ambiance and more excitement, these parties do not serve as an attraction to booking a stay here. I admire the owner and management for attempting to develop a lifestlyles "resort", but without investing in a "Hedo-like" recipe of entertainment, meal, and alcohol, I'm afraid they will be unable to compete well enough to succeed long-term.

If you are open minded for adult fun and relaxing this is the place. This is a swinger resort hotel but we went there to have an adults only vacation. They have a clothing option pool area on the roof. If nudity and open sex offends you this is not your place. This is a 60 year old hotel that has been remodeled so it only about a 3.5 star resort but people come because its unique. We don't swing but had one of the most romantic times without our kids. The place will help you get your romantic side on. Its has theme rooms to choose from with daily breakfast bar. There are plenty of places to eat and drink in walking distance. They have a B.Y.O.B. bar and pool area with places to buy beer and liquor in walking distance. Some rooms have refrigerators and stove for those who don't want to go out to eat. The staff was great so get to know them. I will give you there names so you can know them when you get there.
Anna(Maid)--Very helpful thru out of trip. Tip her well and she will get you what you need to relax and have fun. Her husband works on days she doesn't so they are always around during the day.
Angela(maid and massage person)---She gives great massages and is very friendly.
Kelly(front desk person)--She will help you with booking your trip and info about the hotel.
Brian(Hotel Manager)--He there most everyday during the day if you have any problems with your stay. Very easy to deal with if your calm and reasonable.
Bob(Handyman)--If you have a problem with your sink to toilet, he can fix it. He also know the area hot spots for foods and drink specials(happy hours). He was a great help on deciding when and where to eat and drink.
Dave(Janitor)--Very friendly and keeps the place clean everyday.
Cindy(Bartender)--Tip her well and she will serve you first. Very friendly to talk to.

The staff is like family. They work well together and will treat you like family. Tell them to say Hi from Tim and Kim. Have a great vacation and relax.

Room Tip: Get a theme room and have fun with the person you love.

What a DUMP! We checked into this hotel Friday after paying the deposit at time of reservation. To check in we had to pre pay for the second night. Then we went to the room. OMG! I have been in lots of bad hotels after 30 years of working on the road, but this was the worst. Dirty, moldy, door falling off, broken lock, no bed spread just a blanket, holes in the wall, broken and ripped furniture, and dirty (after play) towels lying around in the play place. Then we went to the roof pool and all that were there were single guys. (No, we are not fresh meet, thank you). We went and got our bags as fast as we could. The person who five minutes ago charged us for the second would not return the payment for the second night after saying we do not want to stay here. We understand the deposit not being refunded but the second night could have been. She said no way. You can call the owner but he is out on medical leave. Another couple walked in on a day pass and left before we did. This place is gross and disgusting. Go stay somewhere else and if you dare to stay don’t pay till you go see the place. We are used to the lifestyle but we don’t want to stick to the floor, bed, walls and seats!

We have stayed here several times. It is certainly not the Hilton, but it is a nice place and we enjoyed ourselves. Just a short walk to the boardwalk and some good food. They were/are remodeling the rooms, but each time we stayed we had a very nice room. It was clean and comfortable. They have (or at least did the last time we were there) a continental breakfast now. The pool is very nice and we feel the only thing missing is a hot tub. The night time atmosphere is good. The Single guys we met were all polite, kept to themselves except an occasional "walk by" to see if there was interest. Any we have talked to were very quick to go on about their interest if we said no thanks. Be certain that if you don't draw your curtains, folks will walk by and look in! We enjoy it and recommend it to anyone who is in the lifestyle. It is all about what you make of the place.

The rooftop resort located in Hollywood, Florida is a great destination in the Florida sun for lifestyle couples. The location is a block from the sunny beaches of Broward County and the Boardwalk filled with shops, bars, restaurants and attractions The white sand beaches and warm waters of south Florida can not be beat.

There is a beach shop, liquor store and other attractions all within walking distance making the location ideal for a vacation where you don't have to worry about driving. The staff at Rooftop will pick you up at the airport and take you to local clubs as well so no need to rent a car. If you do drive your parking is covered in your day fee / hotel stay.

The roof top pool is inviting and warm, there are plenty of lounge chairs spread around and you will find the people very friendly and outgoing. You can bring your own alcohol to the pool and in the evening the hotel provides cook out items all free of charge.

The rooms are a bit dated but offer comfortable accommodation for your stay. The rooms are clean and stocked well. Rooms range from standard hotel rooms to kitchenette suites. It is definitely not the Hilton but it is not a dump either.

There is a bar area in the center courtyard that is open and there are themed rooms surrounding the bar area including a sauna. There are nightly parties in the courtyard area.

All together a fun destination for those who enjoy these types of locations. It is primarily visited by couples but they do allow single men and there are normally several there. Most are polite and courteous.
