“Beyond high expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Found the hotel through Trip Advisor and its many fine reviews. We love to stay at independently owned hotels and this fit the bill. We had the feel of the original Ft. Lauderdale, the beach, the family fun. Yes, Angie is terrific, always there and always the best advice! She told us she has families coming for over 30 years. That should tell you something. The rooms, tho old were spotless. I saw the "help" she never stopped running! The pool glistened and believe me on our walks in the neighborhood, the others didn't.
She helped us with our tours, our boarding passes and our restaurants. Two she recommended were great, the Casablanca and ? and Vinny's. We even met Vinny.
You can't go wrong, STAY!

Angela and staff are very friendly and hospitable.Nice pool and grounds to relax on.You don't even need a car to get around as most everything is within walking distance or with public transportation.THE water taxi stop is close by and is enjoyable way to get into town.It's a great location within walking distance of beach.

We visited thie hotel in March 2013 together with our son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. We chose it because of recommendations from friends who had been there before. We were very satisfied with the place, and Angela was an outstanding example for friendliness and hospitality, top score!
We enjoyed the stay very much. Angela can not be blamed for very low temperature and for my 6 days fever....

We went down in February (2 adults, 2 children), and it was just right for our needs. My kids loved the pools, and we loved that we could just walk to the beach spur-of-the-moment, and not have to pack up the car for the day. Angela and her husband are so hospitable, they are truly genuine in wanting their guests to have the best possible stay. FYI, we are a family of Italian-Americans from Boston. So for our children, this was also like a little slice of living in a village in Italy--seeing your neighbors each day, kids from the hotel spontaneously playing together (unplanned play dates--what a concept!), playing bocce under the tutelage of the old-timers who know their stuff, and big family dinners outside by the barbeques. These are not the kinds of experiences you'll have at a standard hotel chain.

Room Tip: First floor rooms might be a bit noisy if there are kids in the room upstairs. Families tend to be p...

My wife and I on the spur of the moment decided to get out of snowy Maine for a few days. We saw the Napoli Belmar and booked the last available room. We booked on Sunday for a Tuesday arrival. The Napoli Belmar is at the far end of Fort Lauderdale beach away from the major high rise hotels. We think it is the best part of the beach, quieter and not as crowded. Belmar is a short two blocks from the ocean in an area of small low rise apartments. A lot of interesting Art Deco buildings on North Birch and the surrounding neighborhood. It was like "old" Ft Lauderdale, before the high rises, etc. The Belmar is a nice, quaint older, well kept motel, with three pools and and relaxing atmosphere. There were French-Canadians and Italian-Canadians staying there. There were vacationing families with young children, people lounging around the courtyard, and it was a very pleasant atmosphere. Again, we booked the last room, and it was a bit smaller than we are used to, but it went with the age and style of an older facility. To be clear: older isn't necessarily bad. The staff and management couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. I would recommend the Napoli Belmar to senior travelers, families and solo travelers. Restaurants are nearby and the price was more than reasonable for FT Lauderdale at this time of year. In the past, we have stayed at the more well known chain hotels, Bahia Mar, Pier 66, etc. At this stage of the game, for us, the Belmar was perfect. I'll be back when we decide for another quick getaway to the sun. The next time I'll be sure to book an efficiency, which looked perfect for couples wanting to spread out a bit more.

1. very clean and well maintained.
2. lovely pool, barbeques and laundry facilities
3. forgot my travel pillow there the first night. They hung onto it for 2 weeks and gave it to me after our cruise. wow...wasnt expecting that.
4. Staff are lovely. The owner kept our suitcases for us in the office unti lour room was ready.
5 close to beach.
6. both my husband and I had viral asthma when we arrived and we asked that they clean just using hot water, no chemicals as the fumes would exacerbate our wheezy coughs...no problem.
