This is a great place to stay. It's the second time we've been here with family and not been disappointed. One day I spent the afternoon by the pool with less than 15 people relaxing on the entire grounds (including beach, grassy area, etc.) and then walked a few blocks away to see 100 people crammed into the same physical sized space around the Embassy Suites pool (and probably paying double what we paid!). Most of the time there was just us in the pool when we took a dip. As one reviewer wrote, if you're looking for corporate chic & pizazz, pay more and stay at a ritzy place (crammed between dozens of other sun soakers). But if you want cleanliness, attractiveness, peace, a friendly helpful staff and very nice co-vacationers, stay here. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, the apartments clean and a decent size, the maid service excellent. Yes, the kitchen cabinets could use updating, but all the wonderful things this resort has to offer far outweighs that minor detail. We plan to continue to vacation here.
(BTW, their address says Hillsboro Beach, not Pompano which is the next town over. The resort is actually 2 blocks from the Deerfield Beach town line).
