Blue Seas Courtyard
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 29, 2009

My boyfriend and I visited the Blue Seas Courtyard on a recent vacation, and we had a great time! The hotel is right across the street from the ocean (a 2 minute walk at a leisurely pace), and within walking distance of a grocery store, liqour store, bars, restaurants, etc. I thought it was really cool that the Blue Seas is so unique- definitely not your typical cookie-cutter chain hotel. Each room is hand-painted by the owners in a colorful Mexican hacienda style. Also, there is free WiFi. The rooms have full kitchens, plus there's a grill in the courtyard area, so we were able to cook a lot of our own meals. The week we were there, the guests ranged in age from late 20's (me) to retirees; we didn't see any kids or spring breakers. Everyone seemed friendly and laid-back. All in all it was a fun, relaxing vacation! We hope to come back in the fall.

Blue Seas Courtyard is a VERY nice little place! The rooms and grounds are exceptionally clean and well kept. I loved the spanish mexican decor. This was our first to Lauderdal by the Sea and we absolutley loved it and will return again.

We spent about two weeks at the Blue Seas. It is a quaint, Mexican decorated gem. Very relaxing atmosphere, small pretty pool with palm shaded loungers; hosts provide guests with beach towels for the pool and beach chairs for the beach; Marc and Christie are friendly and helpful. The location is across El Mar Drive from the beach - a short and easy 90 second (I timed it) walk to the sand. The rooms are all equipped with necessary kitchen facilities that are functional, if not the most modern. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. I recommend the Blue Seas and if we were to return to Lauderdale-by-the-Sea this would be the place we would stay.

The Blue Seas was delightful. The owners were both kind and accomodating. We could have done without the rude smokers who sat by the pool with the miserable looks on their faces (perhaps because they were too busy getting lung and skin cancer). Perhaps those who have problems with children should consider a place like Rancho Cortez instead.

Had a blast and some well needed rest! The rooms are nice and clean and the decor was wonderful - very interesting...the pool and the grounds well maintained as well as the small kitchettes - well stocked...it was quiet and just a few blocks from the action of the bars and food. The location was safe and across the street from the ocean and sand...I had a great time and would love to visit again soon and I would recommend it to everyone I know. Also the owners are lovely people and they extended their welcome and were a pleasure. Anything we needed they saw that we got it!!!!

This was the first vacation that neither my husband nor I wanted to go home. We spent the last week in January at Blue Seas Courtyard. As the other reviewers say, the rooms were extremely clean, uniquely decorated, and the owners gracious and friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to get away from the stresses of your job and enjoy an uncrowded beach. We were lucky with the weather the week we were there, but the hotel and town of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea would be relaxing anytime. You truly could stay here without renting a car. Good restaurants and stores are within easy walking distance, and many more restaurants are a short cab or bus ride away. We will definitely return.

This was our second stay at the Blue Seas. The rooms are extremely clean and charmingly decorated. The pool courtyard can be a quiet retreat just steps outside your door-pray that you do not have invasion of the families described in the previous post..we were there that week! What disturbed me the most was the families in question were staying at another property across the street! except for the grandparents who were staying at the blue seas. They did take over the chairs and most annoyingly one the parents was an american idol wanna be constantly singing loudly kiddie songs to his small son!! We left a few times to get away from these folks...this put a damper on what I hoped to be a quiet time at the pool all week. If I wanted to be around kiddies all day I would have went to Orlando.
All that aside- the property is nice, clean, conveinent to shops, bars, and the beach! The coffee maker could be bigger our microwave was pretty old and did not heat items up quickly.
Great Value...hope you have nicer neighbors.
