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!
