This will be a lengthy review, but trust me, it will be worth reading and there are lots of pictures too! We had an amazing experience working with the staff even before we arrived at Canada House in Pompano Beach. We were lucky enough to visit the same week as several families who have been visiting the resort over the past 20 years! This was our first week long vacation with our 10 month old son and my parents. We chose Canada house after reading trip advisor reviews on what a great place it is for families with grandchildren and finding 2 studio units on the RCI website. As soon as we received our confirmation, I visited CH’s webpage and emailed them regarding a portable crib for my son. Brian, the administrative assistant, immediately responded that yes, they could provide one at a small fee and offered to help me with any questions or concerns I might have. He was great and even helped arrange for our Studio rooms to be on the beach side, on the 4th floor next to one another with amazing views. Whenever we had questions, he was quick to respond and direct us where to find additional resources if needed. The rest of the staff was also kind, considerate and extremely helpful! We will definitely return. This is a family resort- small, well organized, very secure/gated, clean and very child friendly. My parents arrived very late on a Saturday to check into both units; the pack n play was already available, the kitchen was well stocked with a variety of cookware and utensils, the rooms were clean; however, to my parents surprise they were given several packages of toothpaste in the room, but no coffee. On Sunday, they do free coffee and an information session in the morning; so if you were to plan on checking in late make sure pick up a small package of coffee unless you intend to go out for breakfast or make a trip to the local Publix first thing (Make a Right on E. Atlantic, go over small bridge to next light, it’s on the right.) They have a water filter by the pool that you can use to fill your water bottles when you are sitting poolside; this was a great amenity! The pool is clean and perfect for families with or without kids; lounge chairs and several table/umbrella areas are provided as well as a large selection of pool toys in a bin from past and present families. The resort does not provide them, but the families who visit are always willing to share. My son and I left a lady bug float (Enjoy!) As you make your way to the walkway over the lagoon to the beach, you will find a bin of beach toys as well. You can rent really nice chairs from the office for the week and sometimes they have some for free! Just ask the office staff and they will help you. Next to the pool is a putting green and a shuttle board area; the equipment is provided by the office as well. My father and husband had a great time playing while we enjoyed the pool and the little one napped under an umbrella. This is a quiet resort where parents, grandparents and young children can relax and make memories. Our Studios had full kitchens, but in addition one of the great amenities on the property was the four grills on the lagoon. My family and I love to grill. This side of the resort has two charcoal grills and two gas grills. You need a key to work the gas grills and charcoal for the other. The office often has a supply of charcoal from prior guests and lots of grill tools and extras for the kitchen they are willing to lend at no cost; make sure to check with them. We made dinner on the charcoal grills twice and lunch once. Each Grill has an umbrella, table and chairs on the lagoon; it is peaceful and relaxing and you can hear the waves from the beach (see pictures.) Free Wifi is provided for one piece of equipment per room; you will need it for a smart phone to have full internet access. The office will give you the code on a printout; make sure to save it in case there is a storm as you may need to reboot or login after it. We had a storm the second night and the server went down for a few minutes. Overall this was an amazing experience and I cannot wait to take my entire family back again.
