Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach - a Doubletree by Hilton Hotel
Ranked #54 of 128 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed October 9, 2011

We stayed here because there was a mix up with the other 5 star hotel we had booked. We tried to find something similar to where we were staying but the rates were too high. We settled on Bahia mar and wished we had found it earlier. The value for money was fantastic and the staff were much friendlier than the last hotel we were at. The food joint next door I think it was called 'All About Food' was AMAZING and would deliver to your room. You could see the renovation had really spruced the place up and had a quirky retro feel about it. Highly recommend!

I am familiar with the Bahia Mar Resort & stayed there for the location & amenities. We had a spectular time, the entire staff was friendly & helpful. Instead of using the easy access to the beach, we stayed at the pool bar most of our time at the hotel. The weather was perfect & the pool was very comfortable.The bartender, Ross Collette was an addition we did not expect. He was absolutely the best of the best. Professional, polite, attentive, entertaining, friendly, made great drinks & helped make our stay a very pleasant memory of South Florida. When we travel, the moments that stand out in our decision to return to a location or go someplace else usually are the times when we are the most relaxed and that was what Ross Collette helped create. There was little reason to leave the pool bar when we were having so much fun!. The next time I stay at the Bahia Mar Resort I look foward to being at the pool bar, trying the "Tidal Wave" challenge & enjoying the entertaining atmosphere.

Room Tip: An oceanfront or ocean view room is a very nice picture of south florida

We stayed at the Bahia Mar for two nights at the ending of September 2011 prior to going on a cruise. As many have said, this hotel is in a great location with an overpass walkway straight to Ft. Lauderdale beach. We got a Fall Escape special that included dinner so it was really reasonable. Before you get too excited, remember that this hotel is not a luxury hotel. Think Hampton Inn on the water. We were in the Marina building and while the hotel was recently renovated with new soft goods, flat screen TV, paint & carpeting, the bathrooms look as though they received only new paint and a new shower curtain. The tile, tub and fixtures look original. The grout had a little bit of mold but that's to be expected with such high humidity. AC was quiet and worked fine. The bed was comfortable. We had a courtyard room with a balcony. From the balcony, you had a glimpse of the beach. If you have time, walk around the marina and oogle at all of the yachts or catch the water taxi and oogle at all of the celebrity mansions that line the intercoastal.

The service at the hotel was okay. I can't say it was bad, but you could tell that for the majority of the folks that work there, they were not trained properly. For instance, we were assigned a room and given directions to the wrong building. We had to go back to get the correct directions. We also had the Fall Escape special which included a bottle of wine and certificates for dinner. When they weren't in the room, I inquired and had to go to retrieve those items from the front desk. Service in the Breezes Cafe was also okay but nothing special. They forgot a few items that we ordered and the bartender didn't know how to make a very common drink . When I ordered one of their specials instead, the bartender said he had never made it before and had to ask someone how to make it. Breezes Cafe is a very casual restaurant. The prices are high for what you get.

Would I stay there again? Yes, if I got the same rate. Compared to other hotels on the beach with similar amenities, I found the rate quite reasonable. The room was above par, it's in a great location right across the beach and it's a water taxi stop. The hotel can arrange all sorts of excursions for you including a fishing trip for $35 a person. We would have gone fishing but it was too hot and we ran out of time.

Room Tip: Some courtyard rooms in the Marina building have balconies. Get one that's closest to the stree...

We stayed at the Bahia Mar from September 18th till September 25th. When we checked in and went to our room it was fantastic. What a pleasant surprise, new furniture and carpet looked great. They really stepped it up. We ate breakfast a couple of times at Breezes, the food was very good as well as the service. The pool had new umbrellas and chairs with padding whcih made it very comfortable laying there. I went over to get towels and my wife tried opening the umbrella and one of the men who was doing some touch up painting came over and opened it for her, which was very nice of him. The Wave pool bar had great happy hour drink specials . the food was very good, especailly the Nacho Platter. Jeff and Ross were very friendly and made you feel welcomed. Great guys. We have never been disapointed staying at the Bahia Mar over the past couple of years. It is at a great location, friendly staff, clean Hotel. I can't say enough about this hotel. We will be back soon.

My wife and I stayed here over an extended weekend. We stayed in the second building which was newly renovated. The hotel was clean. The staff was friendly. The location was great. Its right across from the beach park and there is a walkway connecting the beach and the hotel which was very convenient. There is a small convenience store in the building that serves lunch and breakfast as well. The pool was nice with a bar and the exercise facility was very nice. The location was perfect for us. It was a short walk to all the shops and restaurants, but its also away from the crowded area so its very quiet in the evening. Highly recommend.

A very nice hotel, perfectly located even if you don't have a car. The staff who looked after us has been extremely competent, friendly and helpful. The only slight problem is the room air-conditionning which is a little bit too noisy...

Room Tip: The rooms with partial see-view have a real good see-view

This hotel has gorgeous views of the marina, waterways, and ocean. We were extremely pleased with our accommodations which had been updated since our last stay here. Since our visit here was cut short by a death in the family back home, we will try to come back soon. The convenience of the sky walk to the most beautiful beach in south Florida, adds to our desire to return to the Bahia Mar. We took advantage of the water taxi that is right next door to cruise over to Las Olas Boulevard. Another attraction for us is the short travel time to Sun Life Stadium home of the Miami Dolphins. The staff is very pleasant. We highly recommend the Bahia Mar!

Room Tip: Ask for a partial view in the Tower building.
