The owners Mike and Jim are such nice people and you can tell very meticulous because every detail has been thought about from a complementary split of wine to the numbering on the doors. I travel a lot and enjoyed this stay just as well as five star hotels I've stayed in. I love that this is a small place (3 or so rooms) and you have your own entrance with push pad entry so no keys to worry about losing. My friend and I traveled from Chicago in april and had lots of issues with flights and even a flat tire on our rental car and didn't get in until very late. Mike and Jim stayed up late waiting for us and called to check and make sure we were ok 3 or 4 times. We had the double queen room since there were two of us and we were not a couple. It was spacious and nice in every detail. The beds were comfortable and flat screens with cable. You have a little card that you mark off what you want for your complementary breakfast and you get to choose either 8,9 or 10 am which is so great. Mike brings it to your room right on time and you can enjoy it in your room or at the AWESOME salt water pool. Only one other room was rented so it felt like we had our own private pool which is very private. Mike came around and asked if we needed anything and offered us complementary beers. He showed me the other rooms which are single queen rooms and very nice. There is no music at the pool fyi. However we had brought a bluetooth speaker and asked if it was ok by Mike and the other guest and they enjoyed the tunes also. So I'm sure you could do the same.
I chose Island sands mainly because of location and also didn't want the clothing optional at the pool and atmosphere that some of the other b&b's in Wilton Manors offer. I definitely made the right decision. We did rent a car but rarely used it. Island Sands is literally in the heart of the bars and restaurants in Wilton Manors. I am adamant about not drinking and driving so being able to go out at night and safely walk back to a comfortable place was great. However, it is a very short drive to the beach and to Las Olas Boulevard. Our flight home was late the day of checkout and it was a beautiful day so Mike was so sweet and let us relax at the pool the entire day until time to go to the airport. Very Gay and Straight friendly. We will definitely be back and I just can't say enough good things about these guys or their place.
Thanks, Josh and Zach from Chicago.
