My girlfriend and I stayed here sept.20-23 of this year for the long weekend. They are doing alot of construction around the hotel. They are building a new tower and expanding the pool and carabas tiki bar area which once all done, will be amazing. With this new tower up it turned our ocean front room into a partial ocean view. Also they are completely renovating the hotel next door. The noise isn't that much of a problem.
Hotel is very nice. Rooms are very clean. its about 5-7 minutes by cab to the main strip (ocean ave, collins ave and washington ave), around $8-10 each way.
The pool is nice, with a bar next to it. (has the green construction privacy screens around it for the construction which once all done will be amazing). There is a walkway to the carabas tiki bar and deck area which is really nice to grab drinks and food.
Beach is literally steps past that. Nice boardwalk to walk down past all the hotels. (cool to walk on after its not so hot out). The beach is really clean although they charge $45 for an umbrella and 2 chairs even to hotel guests. That was annoying but you get it until 6 pm.
were both in our 20's so we relied on yelp to get us clubs, lounges and bars. we went to mansion and got really cheap tickets on stubhub.com at the last minute. if you like edm, deep house, trance, than check out mansion, story or set. Bamboo looked amazing also. The bars are hit and miss with alot of dives so bar hopping is kind of hard. they have rooftop bar/ lounges but those close at 2am where as the clubs and bars close at 5am. Drinks are pricey so pre gaming is probably wise.
defiantly check out lincoln avenue mall. its a must. all shopping and endless food. italian, cuban, argentinian, brazilian food. street runs for like 8-10 blocks, all closed off with the restaurants and hookah lounges all having there tables and umbrellas everywhere.
also check out ocean ave off the strip for side walk restauants and great lunch specials. we had amazing paella.
BE AWARE that they put gratuity with every bill for food and drinks even for only 2 people and even for 1 drink. so double check ur bill so you dont wind up leaving massive tips.
another word of advise is to not fly into fort lauderdale. priceline sent us there because it was cheaper but the car service ride was $65 each way. (about 35 minutes) they said the taxi's would run the meters and it could be anywhere from $75-90.
definitely would stay here again. location is great and its very quiet and its close enough to the strip.
