Spent a weak at Villa Sinclair with my partner. Very conveniently located near FLL airport and away from the cookie-cutter four-star hotels. Fair value, even considering its many cheezy and over-stated aspects. Be sure that you go there understanding the following:

It is NOT beach front. There is a narrow view of beach that can be seen from a football field's distance. Ocean-front businesses block all but the view down the center of Polk Street, on which Villa Sinclair is located.

The owner appears to be a real estate agent that bought a rundown place and is trying to sell it as a thriving, quaint, French Hotel. Villa Sinclair is to quaint and French what George Bush is to spontaneous and articulate.

Decor? Think bordello reds and blacks mixed with some relatively nice artwork and furnishings--mostly. Funny example: garish disco light (actually rotated) in the bedroom. The housekeeper was kind enough to turn it on for us one evening when we were out.

A number of things did not work: The outside BBQ (no gas), the radio in the room (broken antenna), the outside radio in the BBQ area, the kitchen chairs coming apart.

Really poor quality of workmanship in converting previous house to in-suite rooms. Small, in-window a/c units, poor quality of blinds on windows. Kitchen and refrigerator small, funky and completely filled with a large array of for-sale "minibar" items that had to be moved out before we could prepare meals.

Bathroom was a real patch job. Never did figure out logic behind adjusting shower water pressure/temperature.

Lastly, don't expect things to be as presented in the copious materials on the Villa Sinclair web site. The only telephone in the room was an old fax machine.
We never saw the promised bottle of wine or pineapple. After we realized what our week's fate at Villa Sinclair comprised, we had no interest in receiving anything free from them.

You've been warned. Wish we had been.

After putting in a long week for company business in Ft. Lauderdale my significant other flew in to meet me so we could spend a long weekend at the Villa Sinclair. Hughes and Lydia were the most amazing hosts. Their European flair for hospitality and attention to details coupled with their French passion which exudes the love is in the air behind the scenes magic - made for the most delightful, relaxing and romantic "vacations" we could have ever squeezed into a weekend. We were pampered, yet given time and space for one another. Everything you could want or need is there or within walking distance. The welcoming party and bbq was wonderful. We made sure we tried a little of everthing while we stayed - the beach, the hammock, the hot tub, the whipped cream, the candles, the bubbly bath, the wine, the massage....and each other. We fell in love deeper and hotter than we were before. We had such a rich and memorable experience. If you are ever in the area, I would highly recommend that you forsake the large, impersonal hotel chains and enjoy this treasure. Put yourselves in the capable hands of Hughes, Lydia and their associates. We will remember our time at Villa Sinclair always and can't wait to visit again.
