“Nothing to write home about!”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Just got back from here. First experience with part of the staff was not good, one employee told us one thing and then another employee told us something different. They need to retrain them on customer service. Room was so so, the bedroom was cramped with to much furniture. The living room furniture stunk of mold, tiny bathrooms. Best part about this resort is it sits on the beach and there is a fun Tiki Bar and restaurant Seaside Grill 2 resorts down and it's open to the public. Would I come back here, probably not.

I stayed at La Costa Beach Club in Pompano Beach Floriday for a week in September.
I got a studio with a kitchenette. My room was very clean and comfortable. I had a Queen murphy bed (a pull down bed , hidden in an armoire) which was VERY comfortable! Bathroom and shower was great. I loved being able to get groceries, have a leisurely coffee in the morning, make my own breakfast, and relax. The grounds were well kept, and although I did not really use many of the amenities (like swimming pools, hot tub) I could see how this is a great place for couples and families. I went to the beach most days.... the private beach access was awesome.

Close to Fort Lauderdale, but quieter...


Since I stayed in a studio, there were no extras such as daily cleaning, which suited me fine. There is a linens drop off/exchange three days a week so you could get fresh bedding and towels. All good.
I loved it! I would return.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review about our resort.

Just so you are aware it is not that you didn't get service because you were in a studio, we do not offer daily service for any room type unless requested in which there is a small fee.

Hopefully you will be back to visit us again!!

People at check in were extremely nice and hooked us up with a great room bottom floor beachside(123). It's exactly what I expected, atired older place that is in need of some updates. You can tell they're making them but I'm sure it's a slow process just like other dated timeshares. It was very clean, safe and comfortable. We wouldn't hesitate to go back and we have talked about doing just that even we just got home yesterday. Met some extremely nice owners while we there as well.

Room Tip: Try to get an oceanside room, higher up would've been better than ground floor as you can't...

We come here twice a year. It's a low end type timeshare. In the five years we have been coming here our room has never been ready at four (Check-in Time) and not one minute earlier!, we have always had to wait for something to be done. But the location is its best feature right on the beach! WiFi in room is extremely SLOW! They have activities during the day. They have updated the rooms. They say no pets but people have dogs hidden in their room and they go in the bushes! But they are right on the beach!

We are not owners, but were renters. We were at the La Costa for 2 weeks and this was the closest to the ocean we have ever been. We had an ocean front and it was wonderful sitting on the balcony overlooking the ocean. The beach was so close, I actually could have tossed a ball onto the sand. It was not very crowded so we almost had the whole place to ourselves during our stay. The grounds are beautiful. There are 3 quite nice size pools, 2 outdoors, one of those heated and a nice size pool inside with a very lovely sitting area all around. There are several patio areas and 4 grills at 2 different locations. The activity director was very adept in keeping things moving along with the Wii games and karaoke, making it a lot of fun for us.
We had a one bedroom condo which was dated but was large and had all the amenities we could have wanted. A dishwasher and 2 large TV sets was a bonus. The kitchen was fully stocked and they give you enough soaps and tissue to get you started but as with many other time shares we have been to, this is standard. You need to go out and restock. We went to the Dollar Tree just a few miles away and for around $10 got everything we needed. A Walmart is next door to the Dollar Tree and we were set for 2 weeks.
Nick, a very kind and helpful employee came up to the room to help us set the alarm clock so we could be sure and get up our last day to catch our plane. The employees at the linen exchange were a real mix, one time one would be very kind and the next time another could be very rude. Same at the front desk, some were nice others seemed as tho you were bothering them.
But overall, everyone was pretty good.
You really can't walk to any restaurants or stores, so a car is needed, but within 5 miles there are a couple of Walmarts, a wonderful Golden Corral, Ruby Tuesdays, Publix, Walgreens, CVS, a library, the Festival Flea Market, most anything you would want that is reasonable.
We definitely plan on going back and hope the next time it is updated, then it will be perfect instead of just great !!!

We just got back from our second trip to La Costa Beach Club Resort. Last year we were in unit 724 which gives you a wonderful view of the ocean the Hillsboro Lighthouse. This year we were still oceanfront and still had a spectacular view of the ocean. The units are a bit dated but the location makes up for any minor problems in décor this resort may have. We love this resort so much we actually bought a permanent annual week. Same unit for the same week each year! We are so excited. Publix grocery store is about 5 minutes away. Shopping. The Tiki Hut Bar next door is a great place to grab a burger and get free live entertainment. Thursday nights are our favorites at the Tiki Hut. Cabanas on the beach are awesome when its really hot. Check in with Bob and he will take care of you. The best part of this beach is getting to watch kiteboarding up close and personal. People who complain about lack of room service and the place being outdated should probably find a different resort or even a hotel to stay in. This is a timeshare resort and room service just isn't provided. Go and enjoy! We've had wonderful vacations at this resort.
