We've been coming to this hotel for the past several years. The beach location is wonderful. When you step off the hotel grounds, you are directly on the wide stretch of beach. If you walk to the north you'll be looking at a beautiful lighthouse and the inlet to the intracoastal waterway. It's fun to sit there and watch the boats coming through. If you decide to walk south on the beach, you'll be going towards the Pompano Pier where you can watch people fish or just relax on the pier. The beach is populated but I've never found it to be over-crowded. I'm not sure you could find a better beach location. The hotel is well equipped and very comfortable. Our suite had a kitchen (full sized refrigerator, 2 burner glass cook top, dishwasher, etc.), one bath (I liked that the shower and toilet were separate from the sink and bathtub), two queen beds, washer/dryer, a sitting area and a small balcony. The beds are very comfortable and each bed had a wonderful selection of pillows--some soft and some firm. The hotel serves free breakfast each day. You can make your own waffles, have cold cereal, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, etc. The hotel has two small pools and a hot tub. The hotel also has a small shop where you can buy necessities, snacks, beverages and quick meals. There is a restaurant on the premises which we did not try. We have ordered from room service and found it to be very good. Parking space is limited in the area, so all parking is handled by the hotel's valet service. It is sometimes a little frustrating that you can't just jump in your car and go, but you can call the valet's and they'll have your car waiting for you if that is your preference. The staff at the hotel seems friendlier than ever which made us feel very comfortable in the hotel. We were greeted regularly by maintenance people, restaurant staff, valets, cleaning staff, and the desk staff. There are not many businesses near the hotel that you can walk to (other than restaurants in other nearby hotels). You'll need a car to get to restaurants or stores.
