“Best little get-away on Hollywood Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

A native to SFL, I grew up on the beach, both Miami and Ft. Lauderdale and it was such a pleasure to find this freshly rennovated "gem" to spend Memorial 2013 & returned for 4th of July 2013. The staff is so attentive and friendly and the owners are wonderful people. As a token of appreciation, he personally barbequed for all of his guests on the 4th of July! it was a feast. I look forward to returning for the next long weekend...

Room Tip: Book early - rooms go fast!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We enjoyed a two-night visit to this lovely property on Hollywood Beach in early August, 2013 and had a mostly lovely stay.

The rooms are outstanding: brand-new decor, spotlessly clean, modern and well-appointed. Our queen bed efficiency apartment was small but had absolutely everything you'd need for a much longer stay: a full kitchen (range, oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, sink, 2/3-size fridge/freezer, utensil and dinnerware); lovely Euro-style bath with vessel sink and a super-nice glass-tiled stand-up shower; flat-screen TV, very comfy queen bed, a nice dresser and side tables, and a marble table and two chairs. Seriously, a really super room.

Likewise, the staff is helpful, friendly and efficient. Check-in was quick and efficient, and there were no surprises between what we paid for and what we got.

The only issues to be aware of if you choose this property are these:

- Some noise is to be expected from the Florio's restaurant next door, so if your room borders on Surf Avenue, you may want to ask for one a bit further away from the broad walk
- You share common areas with other guests. This shouldn't be a problem, but was for us when some very loud, inconsiderate and obnoxious guests insisted on talking very loudly for hours on end right outside our door. This is not a knock against the management, but it can be an issue if you are unlucky enough to have rude neighbors.
- Check the settings on the AC unit before you go to bed at night. Our friends had a rough night's sleep and one of them fell ill from the over-powered AC blowing right down on you from above all night.

In all, this is an excellent property, a really nice value and an outstanding location. We plan to return on our next visit to Hollywood Beach.

Room Tip: Get a unit closer to Hayes Street and away from Ocean for the quietest night's rest.

Thank you for your great review. We are very happy to know that you enjoyed our renovated property and upgraded amenities.

We are sorry to hear that the noise made by other guests disturbed your stay. The hotel's policies state that guests must respect the quietude of others after 10 pm and we will be more vigilant in emphasizing this.

We thank you for taking the time to review us and hope you choose the Caribbean Resort for your next stay in Hollywood.

What a pleasant surprise to find on Hollywood Beach. Clean, recently renovated, small but efficient. So rare to find this quality here. Walk across the driveway and you are on the beach. My new favorite for staying in this area

We had a very nice time at this resort. Is a great deal for the price. Location is very good and they welcome pets. Even though I was surprised they do not provide shampoo and they do not clean the room.

My family and I stayed a long weekend at one of the largest apartments and it was like a home away from home. The service was excellent. The people who work there are friendly and warm and aim to please to make our stay fun and pleasant. The apartment was impecably clean and had everything we needed. The environment was quiet and restful. Im already planning my stay for next summer.

The place itself is not bad, the renovations are very nice. However, we arrived in the middle of the day on the 4th of july to a showdown. Since we rented with a "guaranteed parking space" we were shocked when we saw the parking lot bumper to bumper with cars, no place for us or any other guest that had arrived to stay for the weekend and trust me we were about 5 different families. It seemed that the proprietors (Russians) sold the parking spaces to the biggest bidder. My friends, the Mouniers who rented as well and had to leave. They were told that if they did not like it, to leave and they did. Then we were sitting at the tiki hut and saw another guess that was fuming regarding this subject and called the police. On one ocassion we left to tend to our dogs as we live in Pembroke Pines and upon my return there was no parking, i parked behind the janitor's truck. Called to tell them, but apparently they did not make a note of it and my car was towed. Of course they had to bring it back on their tab, but still it was total disorganization. I think maybe on a weekend that was not a holiday the place would have been accommodating, but i will never rent during a long weekend. The personnel are not trained enough to handle the traffic. Too bad, the place as i said, is not bad, the location although not directly on the boardwalk is close enough.

Room Tip: Make sure you get promises in writing.

Thank you so much for your comments that help us improve our hotel service. Concerning the parking situation; These kind of situations are extremely rare in our property. The 4th of July week end is one of the busiest week end for us. Nevertheless, please accept our sincerely apologizes for this inconvenient and be sure, Madam, that the next time you and your family will stay with us, we will do our best to give you the service you deserve.
Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
