“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

My husband and I took a small get away we were so happy upon our arrival to see such a charming place, the rooms were so tastefully decorated and the most important of all, IMPECABLE!. The pool area was really cute and very well kept and decorated, the bed super conforable. The location could not be better, you can walk everywhere and the beautiful beach is just a minutes from the hotel across the street. The hotel offered beach towels, umbrellas and chairs to take to the beach. I stayed in suite #5 a perfect room for a family of four and the kitchen has everything you need. If you love food as much as we do, we recommend Keese's, this is a small Greek restaurant (mostly take out) but, you can eat there as well and the food is amazing and at a great price. We are planning to go back soon. Love it, love it, love it!

Room Tip: The place is pretty quite as it is, I guess this really depends on the crowed that you encounter at...

Blue Seas Courtyard was everything I was hoping it to be and more! The rooms were clean, the pool area was beautiful and the location was the best part. Everything was in walking distance. Located across the street from the beach, the hotel offers beach towels and chairs. They also have a small shopping cart to bring to the grocery store which is a few blocks away. All restaurants/ bars are 3 blocks away. Me & 2 of my friends went down (ages- 26,26,27) and it was the perfect getaway. We also didn't have a car and were fine without one. If we stayed longer a car would have been nice just to go check out more of LBTS, Ft Lauderdale and other surrounding areas.. But I'll save that for next time bc I'll def be back! Also note, we were told Jun-Oct is their off season as it is so hot there. Not sure if in season changes things significantly but it didnt seem like the place was over crowded at all. Mulligans was our favorite place to eat and all surrounding bars were equally as fun!

I reserved the Blue Seas Courtyard after reading the TA reviews and it was wonderful! Room (#6) was clean and very comfortable and grounds are adorable, with Mexican pottery everywhere. I thought it may be a problem, being across the street from the beach, but that wasn't an issue. It's a 2 minute walk and the street you cross is not busy.
We will return!

We appreciate your review and know how important 'getting on the beach' is to our guests! Our hacienda is located on El Mar Drive, the quiet beach lane. Because we are so close, we offer views of the ocean from many of our rooms. If beach access is important to you, please check the location of hotels. If not located on El Mar Drive they are a block or more away from the beach.

Sincerely,
Cristie

One of the nicest, cleanest and most charming seaside motels that can be found anywhere. Its a very unique and tastefully done property. Sparkling pool and a short walk to lots of nice restaurants and place to have a few cocktails. On this recent trip I stayed at the Breakers in Palm Beach, the Eden Roc in Miami Beach and finally at Blue Seas Courtyard...in its own way Blue Seas is as unique as the Breakers...Really enjoyed my stay there. Highly recommended!

Just returned from 7 days at this wonderful mini resort. Every favorable review you read here is right on the money. The place is an absolute gem. Extremely clean, access to almost everything very close by, the owners are so great and were always there for you. But I can't say enough great things about the manager, Gary, he was the most helpful. There was nothing he wouldn't do for you to make your stay pleasant. He is a gem. They hit the jackpot when they found him. Just incredible. Christy and Gary, if you happen to read this review I want to thank you again for making my vacation so very special. I will definitely return here next year. Just an amazing place. You all do a wonderful job to make everyone happy. My thanks to all the people who sent in their reviews. They were so very right and very helpful.

Blue Seas Courtyard gets everything right. Beautiful character filled environment. 2 mins to the beach.. we just walk and take a towel. Part of the pool in shade during heat of the day. Pool kept immaculately by Gary. Adequate cooking facillities we used the communal barbacue often. Rooms v clean and v.comfortable. They provide beach towels which is a great relief when packing. The owners are very very nice as are all the staff . Other visitors always seem to be very nice too.... our neighbour was back for the 58th time!! What else do I need to say. Everything super clean and all the updating is beautiful and has kept the mexican flavour. When we want to go somewhere where we KNOW everything will be perfect this is where we go. It is quiet when we go June/July, very peaceful indeed. No high rise hotels and lots of interesting hotels , motels preserved from the 40s and 50s make walking around very interesting indeed. We have been back 5 times. My husband would say Fantastic Beach Diving and Snorkelling on a reef about 100 yards off the pier. One major reason he is always keen to come back.

Room Tip: I clicked "very good' for kids activities because we always found it easy to entertain our...
