This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel because of the amazing view and accessibility to the beach. The hotel is about a 25 minute ride from the Ft. Lauderdale airport ($35.00). It's in a very quiet location, and the surrounding area has small-town feel. We have stayed both times in the junior suite on the lower floor and can't imagine staying anywhere else. You walk right out onto a small patio, which leads you right onto the beach. You can rent a lounge chair for $3.00 per day (it would be nice if that was included in your hotel price, if you have more than 2 people staying for a week, it can get pricey) and take an umbrella from the pool and you are set for the day. There are about 4 restaurants within walking distance, plus a Walgreen's and a 7 Eleven. There was also a Village market (right across from 101 Ocean restaurant on El Mar and Commercial) where you could purchase cold cuts, and cheese, and liquor. Walgreen's also has a liquor store right across from the pharmacy on Ocean Blvd. (A1A). The Galleria Mall (Sunrise Blvd.)is about a 10 minute cab ride ($12.00) and worth the trip. We found the complementary breakfast sufficient, you get your basic fare. The staff was quite helpful, every time we asked for something, they were very accommodating. The room is large, queen size bed with a kitchenette, dining table and a very good size bathroom (bathrobes, safe, iron and board included).
We didn't have a car and didn't find a grocery store within walking distance, but I am sure there is one somewhere.....also when staying on the lower floor you do encounter few lizards, so if one is squeemish and doesn't like the little criters you may choose to stay in one of the upper floors.
We checked out number of hotels along the beach, and this hotel is the one. It's right on the beach, good size hotel, plenty of parking, close to restaurants, what more can you ask for?
