Reviewed December 10, 2013

Stayed here as a stop over not too long ago for a few days during our stay in Florida and my wife and I found this place to be not only convenient but also a good time. Not only is the food just superb at the onsite restaurant, but also the outdoor pool restaurant was amazing, the pool itself being just a small area was great, but most of our time was spent on the beach just feet away and not too far a walk from the pool bar as was well needed. The service here from the staff beach attendants and the hotel was amazing. We did not like our initial room as the hotel has a new area which they added. Originally we were placed in the old area and when we noted that it was not out style nor did it have any view we were immediately moved to the back new area with a great view and more easy access to everything. The hotel was clean, especially our room, pool and beach area was well taken care of as well and the staff were always giving away free smiles and hellos all day long. There is an onsite coffee type food area which is a little on the pricey side but if you like some good bakery eats to soothe your sweet tooth then this place here is a mouth watering delight. The Wifi was a little shotty here and there and had a few hair puller moments with it but overall it was not that big a deal, and little pricey as well but when it comes to wifi you would think it would be free everywhere…anyways I would recommend that when staying here request the ground floor pool level rooms facing the beach in the new building you’ll enjoy it unless your looking for a wider range view then request an ocean front in the new building, they are mostly never avail but if you land one…you’ll love it! The parking lot for cars is across the street from the hotel, which is a little odd but considering the real estate there is not much else you can do with that, if you leave your car with the concierge it’s a tad easier but again going to cost you.

Room Tip: New Building on the beach front with access to the pool area and bar restaurant. Anything in the new...

Its a beach hotel so I had huge expectations and they were fulfilled. It is a big property with a pool overlooking the beach, a beach right next to it and great location for FLL. Remember, this is not Miami South beach but it is good in its own way. The hotel room was good, cleanliness due to being at beach side is as usual not expected but the pool side dining and relaxation made up for most of it. The parking was a pain to be in another building and quite a walk from my floor. Service was not the best due to the long weekend and people mobbing the front desk all the time, so no complaints there.

I have been coming to this hotel 8 or 9 times a year for 15 years. It's only a 10 minute cab ride from the airport and there is so much within walking distance. If you are looking for a quick easy trip to the sunshine, this is the place. The beach has the best accomodations in my opinion. Very comfortable lounge chairs with cushions and you can get an umbrella if the sun is too hot. The beach staff (Anthony, Rudy, Jackson & Alan) is very accomodating and always makes you feel welcome.

We spent 4 nights at this hotel this week while in the area for Art Basel Miami. The hotel charges $20 per day for for self parking and $25 for valet parking. The valet guys are great, but the front desk staff is very snooty. They make you feel like you are not good enough to be there and they are very demanding and discourteous. We paid for our room in advance with our debit card and got a good rate, and the front desk demanded my credit card for the $50 per day security deposit. After examining my debit card on arrival The hotel is in pretty good shape with a fairly recent renovation, but you can tell that they just painted over some rusty things like door hinges. They try to charge $10 per day for wi-fi, which is ridiculous. They try to charge $2 for small bottles of water and there are no fridges in the rooms. The pool and beach staff is really cool and the beach towels and chairs are complimentary. Umbrellas are $19 per day. A little steep. I didn't really feel welcome at this hotel and doubt I'll every stay there again.

This is supposed to be a 4 star hotel? ? Really? I know many motel 6s that are nice than this place. Old, run down, and the worst part--it smells! Awful odor they try to mask. So many better choices in the area.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay in the Sheraton.
We stayed in the tower block on the 4th floor overlooking the marina. In truth we weren’t up high enough to get a good view of the marina.
The room was large with a great king size bed. Our room was dated but spotlessly clean which in my opinion is more important. The bathroom was large with a powerful shower.
Our package included a continental breakfast in the hotel restaurant, Dos Caminos, which was very nice. If breakfast had not been included in our package, we probably would have eaten elsewhere because at $15pp, it was pricey.
The location was perfect for us on the beach, close to the airport and cruise port. We would stay again.

We absolutely loved this hotel. We arrived at the hotel at 9:15 am (after get off a cruise). We didn't expect to have a room ready for a few hours but they were able to get us a room immediately. Even better, it was in the beach tower. First floor with oceanview. Just a few steps to the pool and beach. We spent a lot of time at the beach and were able to use their free beach chairs with umbrellas. They have a fun kids area with tons of beach toys. My son was so happy. The bar food is a bit overpriced but it was much more convenient than going somewhere to get food. We needed to get a taxi at 545 am on check out day and we had no issues. Seem to be always one there waiting. This is a great hotel with a great location. Cant wait to go back!

Room Tip: Beach tower!
