They say, "Good things come in small packages!" Although this oceanfront resort is small (35 units) and looks simple from outside, once you step into your unit, you will see how stylish, comfortable, and clean it is. The friendly housekeeping staff take great pride in their work! All the units on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floor have ocean views; while ground level units all have walkouts to the pool, Jacuzzi, putting green, and tennis court. The Native Sun is a friendly, family oriented resort where guests often make friends with other guests. Although this resort does NOT have a restaurant or bar on site, it is two doors away from the famous "Sea Watch" seafood restaurant and 5 minutes away from dozens of excellent restaurants in the Fort Lauderdale and Pompano area. Michael and Cathy at reception (who have a wealth of knowledge about the area) will offer you many suggestions AND just about anything you may need during your stay.....from a beach umbrella to a blender; from a boogie board, to a tennis raquet to a hair dryer. If eating out is not what you are looking for, Publix is within walking distance, and there are 2 gas grills to BBQ on. Plus all units have well stocked full kitchens! If you love the ocean and a sandy beach, you'll be pleased that the Native Sun is the only resort on the Pompano / Lauderdale-By-The-Sea beach that allows you to bring your lounge chair right down to the ocean. (Just don't forget to return it to the back of the beach so that you won't disturb the turtle activities at night.) If you are a nature lover, you may wish to go out to the beach at 9:00 pm. to watch the sea turtle activities: if you are patient, you may spot a mother Loggerhead laying her eggs in the sand or you may witness little baby sea turtles hatch during the night under the watchful eyes of the turtle volunteers (they are the ones with the red flashlights.) There are wonderful snorkeling opportunities within the swimming area right in front of the resort: just walk into the ocean (half way to the vertical markers), four buildings north of the Native Sun. The fishing pier is within walking distance from the resort and on Friday and Saturday nights, there is live entertainment right by the pier. There is a wonderful, inexpensive community golf course in Pompano, just minutes from the resort. Just ask Michael or Cathy about deep sea fishing, jet skis rentals, outlet shopping, or the lovely Butterfly World. You will love the Native Sun and will want to return year after year!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to The Native Sun, a 35 unit family oriented resort located ocean front in a quiet residential area of Pompano Beach/Lauderdale by the Sea. The resort is only a short walk away from fine dining, shopping and area attractions. The Native Sun is situated on more than 500 feet of white sandy beach. Comfortable lounge chairs are located right on the beach. They allow you to leisurely soak in the warm South Florida sun. Swim in the heated pool, unwind in the hot tub, or refresh yourself in the sparkling blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Take a romantic stroll along the beach while the kids are having fun in the playground. If you feel energetic, you can play tennis on the practice court or take it slower and enjoy the putting green or shuffle board courts. If you haven’t had enough fresh air for the day, you can always have a barbecue and invite your neighbors, and afterwards sink into the quiet relaxation of one of our sauna rooms. ... more less
