“Great spot! Great Hospitality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We were looking for a place to stay near or on the beach and stumbled across this property. We weren't familiar with this area of Florida so I called ahead to get some information about distance to beach and activities to do around the resort. It was some of the best resort/hotel service that I have ever had BEFORE I even reserved a room: Friendly, helpful, and welcoming. We decided to reserve a room and asked what room was suggested for view and space. Again, extremely helpful service. Upon arrival we were welcomed with a bottle of champaign and a card expressing well wishes for our Anniversary! (Very unexpected and very thoughtful)

Though we were hoping to find a place right on the beach, I'm glad that we stayed here. Staying right on the board walk would have been loud at night (and in the morning- there was a fitness expo on the board walk that started blasting music at 8am!). This was the perfect property to get only 20 yards off the beaten path and yet so easy to get to the beach.

The rooms were nice, small but nice. Nice updates and a great little apartment kitchen (had pots/pans/plates/glasses/silverware/microwave/toaster/stove & small oven) Perfect for two people.

The outdoor seating areas on the property are beautiful and well placed. Plenty of shade for relaxation. And on the day before we left, we found out that the front desk has games that you can check out and play!

Overall, this is a great site close to the beach and yet a little bit off the main boardwalk so you are not hearing noise all night. Nicely done rooms, great customer service, great places to eat all around, and a trolley (costs $1 per rider/one way) that stops a block a way to get you to a grocery store or other places to eat in downtown Hollywood.

We loved this place and are already planning on returning with the kids!

We needed a day away from the routines so we ended up in Hollywood with no reservations and no where to stay. When we drove up to this hotel we thought we where gonna get turned away but instead they greeted us like we had been there a thousand and two times before and it was GREAT!!! The rooms nice and clean welcoming the staff so friendly and helpful ... Def gonna be going back and soon. Near the beach nice all this different restaurants.

We needed a quick getaway to the beach. Full kitchen with microwave, all up to date amenities.
Bathroom all new, very nice tile, and shower.
Rooms are small however who cares when you're about 15 yards from the beach.
My wife thought the bed was too firm. There are a lot activities nearby, bikes, paddle ball courts, kids mini water park, a band shell with music at night.

Room Tip: Each room is unique and quite nice. My wife thought the bed was too firm.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your honest comments and are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Along with the complete renovation of the hotel, all furnishings have been changed and are brand new, including the mattresses. We did choose our new mattresses to please the greater majority and we are sorry to hear that the firmness did not suit your preference.

We just got back from there.They shouldn t of rented the room to us as the whole place was under construction.Not much hot water even after a long wait, no WI Fi and not much good tv.There are many other small places with bigger rooms and less expensive all along the boardwalk.The work has been going on for months there were only 3 rooms refinished when we arrived in december(Frank???). The staff tried hard but it was a desaster. Forget pet friendly you can t do anything with a dog in Hollywood..

What a pleasant suprise when we found this fantastic Old Florida hotel is under new management & is being totally remodeled with all new windows, centeral A/C, new enlarged bathrooms, kitchens and beautiful interiors including beddings & furnature. We got to stay in one of the new rooms with an ocen view from the bed room and a view of their new Tiki bar from the front balcony.
The new owner was very accomodating and so was his staff who we both pleasant and helpful when ever we approached them for anything we needed.
Thanks Caribbean Resort; we'll be back soon.

Room Tip: Call in advance. This place sells out quickly but all the rooms are NEW!
