“Great spot to relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Stayed at Caribbean Resort on Hollywood Beach recently ... just a weekend getaway not too far from home. This motel has been refurbished by the new owners and the accommodations are extremely comfortable. Nice bathroom upgrades, but shower door opening is quite tight for anyone not of moderate size. Our room had two double beds, a small table and chairs, a full kitchen with all of the amenities. Back door opened on to their private parking lot. There is a cute little Tiki Hut on the property to get a cold drink and enjoy the day. Nice outdoor showers to wash off the "beach residuals". Flat screen TV and free Wifi in the room. Barbecue grills available for use by the patrons. One block off of the Broadwalk in the middle of Hollywood Beach. Wonderfully relaxing weekend.

You don't get all this asepsis, elegance and coziness, plus the added advantage of a short stroll to the hottest portion of the Hollywood Broadwalk, and the disarmingly unaffected smile of Marie-Helene to boot for about $130 a night during our scorching Florida summer. This place was not a bad choice when it was run-down; now it is in a class by itself, a true gem.

Wow clean ,friendly, steps from the beach, free parking. The renovations are amazing the rooms
Are very modern, overall a great place to stay. The staff went out of there way to make sure you felt right at home. You don't need a pool since your steps away from the beach.

We booked last-minute, blindly searching hotels/motels on Hollywood beach. Marie-Helene was very helpful and accommodating, answering all of my questions and giving me a few pricing options in a friendly manner.

The room far exceeded our expectations—it was beautifully renovated with a full kitchen; stove, full size fridge, dishes in the cabinets. Bed and futon in the front room and a separate room with a queen bed; 1 1/2 baths; and a patio with another full size fridge!

This is the perfect spot to have a pleasant beach getaway. The tiki bar on property is a great bonus, as well as an on-site washer dryer.

Room Tip: The second floor room in the corner is the best!

great location; clean, clean, clean; great staff and awesome service! walk to everything! the place is within 50 feet of the beach; restaurants; shops; markets; bike rentals; etc. the hollywood beach theater is half block away and usually has free concerts for all on friday and saturday nights with ample seating and lots of fun and dancing under the stars. bars all over the boardwalk and so is security. great fun place to watch sports, have dinner, take a dip in the beach.

My son and I stayed for Easter Weekend and all was great. Friendly staff, very clean rooms, Tiki bar and several restaurants close by just in case you decide not to cook in your kitchen or on a grill located just outside your door in the court yard. The resort is just a few steps away from the beach and located right behind a great restaurant. Ask for the morning server "Tina" is her name and she is pleasant and loves to talk! I would recommend to all and look forward to returning soon! Thank you Boris for a great stay.

i stayed here 05/10/2013--- 05/12/13.. first impression was very nice front desk manager,helpful and makes you feel welcome and makes sure your accomadations are acceptable.i believe here name is anabella.short,spanish accent and pretty.....the room #128 was very clean and comfortable.shower and bathroom looked new and the kitchen area looked excellant,especially if you plan on cooking.i was on vacation so whats the point of cooking?the caribbean was one street off the boardwalk and directly across a great restaurant where having breakfast was simple and delicious.food was modestly priced and worth it....they have a tikki bar at the caribbean but at $2.50 for a mug of beer,i found cheaper alternatives along the boardwalk.a great bar and restaurant is called la tub for the best burgers. a family their stayed up until past 2am on sunday morning drinking and talking loud but i sent them a message and they realized how late it was and turned in,thank god....yes i would stay there again

Room Tip: bring suntan lotion and ipod because the beach there is great
