Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach - a Doubletree by Hilton Hotel
Ranked #55 of 127 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed December 18, 2008

I booked a courtyard view room for $99 and was upgraded to an oceanfront room at check in. The ocean is across the street, but there is a walkway to take over the street.

Rooms were Marriott quality. Balconies were nice but standing room only -- you can't fit a chair there.

Easy walk to Bahia Cabana and the Oasis for dinner. Water taxi is next door.

Self parking is $19.08 per night with tax. I will stay here again.

Took a short taxi ride from the airport. Arrived at the hotel at 1:00 PM. Front desk was very busy but it only took 10 minutes to check in. Staff was very nice and helpful. We had a marina view room with a balcony. The bed was very nice, room was clean,and the balcony had 2 chairs and a table overlooking the marina and you could see 17th street and Port Everglades.Poll are was nice but the best thing was the elevated walkway across A1A to the beach. Called the Concierge at 9:00 AM on checkout day to get a cab to the port and it was waiting when we checked out. Overall great service. Will stay here again.

Staff at check in was friendly, courteous. Spectacular views of both the ocean and marina from our room. Wish the balconies could fit a chair - they are standing room only. Amazing to see all the mega-yachts at harbor while walking the grounds. Excellent venue for watching the annual Ft Lauderdale Christmas boat parade. Sunday Bruch at the Breezes restaurant was delicious, lots of choices and the fresh fruit was so good. Wait-service was very attentive without being intrusive. Close to other Ft. Lauderdale attractions, restaurants, beach walk-way over A1A a nice feature.

Dad and I take a vacation together each year and this is was our second time at Bahia Mar. Everything from the checkin to departure was great. The facility was clean, and the location is perfect. The best part of this hotel is the people that they employ. EVeryone was pleasant and willing to assist and our room was comfortable and quiet. I would highly recommend this hotel.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED MY STAY AT BAHIA MAR HOTEL AND RESORT!! I would recommend this hotel without hesitation to anyone visiting the Fort Lauderdale, FL beach area. The front desk associates were very polite and willing to do whatever was needed to make my stay as comfortbale as possible. The beds and linens were soft and fresh. I couldn't believe that my back was not hurting the morning after! That's usually what happens when I stay in hotels. But what really made my stay worth wild was the ocean view that I was able to get for the price...it just doesn't get any better than that!

We got an amazing deal booking this hotel with a flight package on Travelocity, so the room worked out to less than $60 per night. That said, for the price, this was a great vacation spent in Fort Lauderdale over Thanksgiving week.

The location is key. You have a private walkway to the beach, a great pool and bar at the hotel, are within close proximity to the water taxi and marina for boat rentals and other fun activities, etc.
We really enjoyed exploring Ft. Lauderdale in general, and this is a good central hotel to do this from, especially if you don't have a car.

The staff is great. 99% of our interactions involved excellent customer service and they seem to try to go out of their way to make guests happy.

The room had one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Not the biggest room ever, but the bed is SO important to me when I am on vacation. Kudos to the hotel for investing in a good mattress and linens.

The cons:
No hot water in our shower off and on for five days during our stay. sometimes it was warm, sometimes it wasn't. that part sucked.
The main restaraunt leaves a bit to be desired. limited menu, limited hours, and feels more like a lobby lounge than a real dining environment. drinks and food are a bit pricy for what you get in general...i'm not use to paying $8 for a mixed drink, but this also seemd to be on par with drink prices all over the city.
The hotel in general is in need of a an overhaul/remodel. Carpets are old and dingy. At times, the lobby smelled like wet dog? 1/3 of the chairs at the pool were broken. Wallpaper in our room had been scribbled all over presumably by a guest's kid with a crayon. Various dings, scratches, paint chips, etc. everywhere throughout the property. Again, we paid less than $100 per night, so this was not expected to be first class hotel, but we hope the the future they will put more attention into aesthetics.

We will return again for future vacations to Florida, but only if we get the same deal with a vacation package. I would probably not pay the full $200 or whatever their standard room rate is for this property.

Bahia Mar Beach Resort was a great location. You do not need a car, only 4 miles from airport. Nearby was a water taxi with 11 stops; on and off all day for one time price. On weekends there was a trolley with 2 routes and severals stops on each. A short walk to the main street of the beach with many restaurants and shops. Nice views from the hotel.
