I have been going to this place for family vacations since I was a kid. It is located on the beach! With a large swimming pool, shuffle board courts, tennis court, nine hole artificial grass putting green, and large jacuzzi. This place was an older hotel converted to a timeshare many years ago. They have updated the furniture and added pavers/hurricane shutters. Great place to stay for the family or a quiet beach retreat. The beach access is only open to resort guest. The public can stroll on the beach only near the water. So, somewhat private beach. We go in June and July and walk from our room to track the sea turtles coming to shore to lay eggs. It is unbelievable. Rooms book for the week around $1000-1500 in the summer. Much higher in the winter and holidays. They have 1/1 and 2/1 rooms with full kitchens. I prefer the ground floor. Easier access to the outdoors. If you want to enjoy the view of the beach directly from your room, select a 3rd or 4th floor room. The private balconies usually have a few guest reading a book while enjoying the beach sites and sounds. A large fishing pier is location about a 1/2 mile south of the resort. You can walk it while collecting shells or drive down and enjoy the many mom and pop restaurants. Great place to stay if you do not want room service and valet (not available). No restaurant on property. It does not shine like a new 5 star resort but has all the same beach perks that make for a great trip!
- 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
