Nice garden in front and plenty of spots to hangout and read or visit with others. Free wifi, bikes to ride and easy beach access. Many restaurants and shopping nearby. We will...

The Desoto is such a unique little place. The rooms a spacious, and comfortable. We have stayed here almost every time we visit the area for work. This little boutique makes you feel like you're in a totally different world. So relaxing. The outside sitting area is really quaint, and relaxing. It is off the beaten path, but close to...

My fiancé and I stayed 3 nights here while visiting family for Thanksgiving. We chose it for its proximity between the beach and family in the area. We had no idea what to expect and feel so fortunate to have stumbled upon such a special place. We couldn't be more pleased with the studio suite accommodations. The owners literally have...

This, our second stay at the Desoto, was even better than our first (three years ago). Only steps away from a gorgeous beach, we made good use of the free beach chairs, towels and umbrellas this time. We were in a well appointed room, with all amenities. Lots of nice eating spots nearby. We liked the Teppenyaki buffet. We also...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a two week trip. We thoroughly enjoyed the lovely, low-key boutique charm and complimentary amenities--beach, chairs, towels and bikes. We enjoyed popping down the 1/2 block to the beach for a dip or sunrise view. We initially arrived right after 5 PM so we were greeted by...

Peace and quiet, clean, just a walk to the beautiful emerald and blue water to swim in or get some sun. More action just a few minutes away if you like the bars, restaurants, shops and entertainment venues. Also, just minutes from Fort Lauderdale airport! I would definitely return.
