Prós: Old fashioned beach area hotel recently renovated. Really lovely and family run. Full kitchen including dishwasher. Dining Table, living room with flat screen TV, King master bed two night stands and chest of drawers and another flat screen TV, nice size bathroom with glass enclosed shower, huge closet for clothes, two free beach chairs and a beach umbrella. Tile floors through out makes it feel clean instead of rug full of sand. A real gem !!
Prós: This is my 2nd time staying here. Me and my family enjoyed our stay so much last year, that we decided to stay again. Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. We had the poolside room where you can see the beach, palm trees and pool. It was wonderful waking up every morning and sit on the balcony with a cup of coffee and just relax. We will definitely be staying again.
Contras: I don't have anything negative at all to say.
Prós: Beachfront, pools and very close to shopping, restaurants and activities
Contras: Can be expensive
Prós: The property was gorgeous, classically elegant Florida. Low key and no overcrowding! The beach was beautifully maintained and the beAch staff - especially Lane were so nice and attentive!
Contras: Restaurant service was spotty - the food was very good but even with low volume the service was not very attentive. We frequently waited a long time for service, had to ask for silverware, more water, etc.
Prós: De frente para o mar, piscinas e muito perto de lojas, restaurantes e atividades
Prós: The Queen Suite unit was fresh and clean, and had everything we needed. The living room area was comfortable for evening relaxing, the kitchen had every tool we might have needed, the bathroom was sparkling fresh with luxurious towels and french-milled soap.
The bedroom was cozy with fresh crisp linens and plenty of pillows.
There is plenty of free parking.
If we'd had more time for social relaxing, there is a lovely pool and patio.
Check-in after hours was easy and we'll be back when we have to work in Fort Lauderdale again!
Contras: I'm surprised there wasn't a pay-toilet! Extra for everything.
Prós: Located on beach near Birch Park. Kayaks, paddle boards, lounge chairs, umbrellas, towels, etc available on beach for guests. Valets, check in folks, & staff in general excellent. Rooms nice with good layout and generally quiet. Maid service okay- did not clean our room one day, even tho gone during mid day for about 3.5 hours- not really a biggie as rooms well supplied except for coffee. Saw young, middle aged, older, and family's with small children- EVERYBODY looked like having a good time.
Contras: Two things- one morning fire alarm system tested for about an hour. Very loud speaker- wonder why cannot check b/t check in/checkout vs mid morning. Maybe fire dept controls and hotel does not have a choice. Other thing is somewhat trivial- hotel has very limited TV channels; missed The Walking Dead:( But wife could watch Oscars on other TV. Having 2 TVs a plus, even tho channel access limited.
Prós: Beautiful ,quaint ,romantic hotel on the beach. Nostalgic luxury. Our new go to vacation Resort!
Contras: Bathroom could use some attention to the grout. Little mold here and there. Overall still an excellent place to stay.
Prós: Our room was spacious and the view was gorgeous! The balcony off our room and on the back of the resort was great. We really enjoyed eating and having a few drinks out there. The resort's beach was very nice and the guys that worked the beach stand were very attentive. All of the staff were very friendly as well. We had a great time!
Contras: The bar closes at 11:30pm, which seemed kind of earlier. We were there at close Saturday night and there was at least 30 people in there still wanting to stay at close.
Prós: I absolutely loves this place. Great location, friendly staff, amazing food. And the beds were xtremely comfortable.
Contras: Parking was a bit expensive. $30/night
Prós: The rooms are a bit dates but beautiful, and the location, staff and amenities more than make up for it!
Contras: Estou surpreso não havia um pay-higiênico! Extra para tudo.
Prós: Belo, pitoresco, hotel romântico na praia. Nostálgico de luxo. O nosso novo ir para Férias Resort!
Contras: Banheiro poderia usar um pouco de atenção para a argamassa. Pouco de mofo aqui e ali. No geral ainda um excelente lugar para ficar.
Prós: The location was great and the rooms were very nice! The wedding we attended was beautiful.
Contras: I had left a watch by the pool and checked with the front desk to see if anyone had turned it in. They simply said no and sent me on my way. However, when I checked at the pool restaurant, she asked me if the front desk had checked with lost and found. The front desk didn't even bring up lost and found as an option. Luckily, security had received the watch and we were able to get it back.
Prós: Beach front and accessible to anything, nice ocean view from the room, clean hotel and it has everything we need.
Contras: Front desk is horrible specially the person who checked us in. She told me that I will get a text or a phone call when the room is ready but unfortunately no one calls me back not text. I have to call and find out myself to see if our room was ready. Other than that everything was perfect.
Prós: Walking into the resort really felt like home. The staff was friendly and very accomodating and it felt so fancy! I really enjoyed my stay and I always stay at the Hilton when I travel, never disappoints! We had a jetted tub in the room and a view of the beach, the swimming pool overlooked the ocean which was walking distance from the hotel! Our whole experience with the resort was everything we dreamed of. Will definitely return our next trip to Fort Lauderdale!
Prós: It was a great location however service and staff were average. No one really went out of their way to be helpful.
Contras: We arrived at the hotel at 9 am and were not allowed into the room till 3pm. The jacuzzi tub had yellow water coming out of the faucet.
Contras: I had to wait until 6pm to check in
Prós: Great service, staff, food. Great location.
Contras: Hidden fees. Mandatory "resort fee" should be part of up front cost, not an "indicental" learn-about-it-upon-checkout fee.
Wifi painfully slow.
Prós: Location and suite we stayed in
Contras: The valet parking - over priced and under delivered
Prós: Nice pool area, access to beach; good restaurant/bar; close to lots of activities in Ft. Lauderdale
Contras: Eu tive que esperar até as 18 horas para fazer o check-in
Prós: Location was nice. Housekeeping and the valet were polite.
Contras: Hotel construction was everywhere including the expensive beach front view I payed for. I was treated disrespectfully by the day manager. He lied to kayak about approval for an early checkout refund. We left anyways. The chair in our room was held together with gorilla glue, the a/c and fridge worked intermittently. Overall all of the inconveniences made it for a difficult first trip with our new baby. The hotel refers to itself as luxurious, but customer service and repairs to the inside of the rooms are greatly needed.
Contras: No housekeeping
No available chairs, etc for the beach
Prós: Great location. Comfortable bed and room.
Contras: Dated and worn out furniture and kitchen cabinets.
Prós: Nice large room and decor
Hotel Pool and Lobby are very nice
Restaurants are fun
Contras: Missing remote, room service book, etc. upon arrival and took about 45 min to bring it up.
Food prices on room service menu.
View of construction site with blocked view of ocean on "oceanview room"
Prós: Great location right on the beach. Large, comfortable rooms. The staff allowed me to check in a few hours early since they had a clean room ready. Nightly turn down service with chocolates on my pillow were a nice touch.
Contras: Front desk staff was average. At best. At a hotel of this caliber I expected a lot more courtesy and friendliness. Broken shower. No available chairs at the pool TWO days in a row. No bellhop to carry my luggage. And no apologies when I told them about my underwhelming experience.
Prós: I have stayed at the Atlantic twice and there is literally nothing one could not like about this hotel.
Contras: That my trip was not longer :)
Prós: I know this might sound wired but the shower, hotel showers are usually bad but this one was great! Lots of pressure and never ran out of hot water.
Contras: The king bed was very lumpy and uncomfortable.
Prós: The service, food and staff were amazing
Contras: Can't think of anything
Contras: Não há serviço de limpeza
Sem cadeiras disponíveis, etc para a praia
Prós: Excelente localização. Cama confortável e quarto.
Contras: Datada e desgastado móveis e armários de cozinha.
Prós: I would say everything was excellent front desk service ,,staff, room cleanliness enough towels excellent house keeping, great restaurant on same building which it was awesome
Contras: Ugh the parking it was 10 dollars which is not that bad
But it's in the same building and parking spots are super tight and not enough due to car rental company has a whole floor
Contras: I checked in on Christmas Day of 2016!!! Staff overcharged my checking and ruined our Christmas Day. Booked through Kayak and prepaid. Checked in at the hotel and account was charged AGAIN. Horrible experience. The manager did give us 10,000 bonus points for the stay--try booking a hotel stay with IHG points. That will not even you get you one night a Holiday Inn. I would recommend paying in CASH!
Prós: The room was fantastic!!! So comfortable and clean and welcoming!
I didn't want to leave!! And I will be back! :)
Prós: Value for the money
Contras: The fact they don't offer a continental breakfast.
Prós: We loved the pool and deck area. So nice and relaxing. The free airport/cruise shuttle was awesome and timely.
Contras: The only negative was that our TV didn't work. They sent a repair man but he couldn't repair it.
Prós: Good size room and really good restaurant/bar
Contras: Very firm bed
Prós: O quarto era fantástico!!! Muito confortável, limpo e acolhedor!
Não queria ir embora!! Eu quero voltar! :)
Prós: Bom custo-benefício
Contras: O fato de que eles não oferecem um café da manhã continental.
Prós: Nós adoramos a piscina e a área do deck. Muito agradável e relaxante. O translado gratuito para o aeroporto/cruzeiro foi incrível e útil.
Contras: O único aspecto negativo foi que a nossa tv não funcionou. Eles mandaram uma pessoa para consertar, mas ela não consegui consertar.
Prós: Everything from the service to amenities to the location were excellent for our family with two young children traveling back home from our cruise. The room was immense and clean. The included breakfast was above the standard fare. The ability for us to eat lunch at the hotel was an added bonus.
Prós: Very important that compare to other Hotels, this was top 5 for me! Very Clean, Breakfast was include it and they had everything. Big Rooms, and it was close to anywhere. There was a mall outside that you could get the Trolley all around FTL....
ask for transportation. it's cheaper than a cap
great Hotel, you should go
Contras: If you order room service, you have to go get it yourself.
Contras: Undisclosed additional Parking fee !
Prós: Free airport shuttle, good free breakfast, right next to the cruise port entrance, taxi to pier was only $12 or you can take the hotel shuttle for $7 per person. Faster and cheaper to use a taxi for 2 or more people. Rooms are large and good quality.
Contras: Expensive at some times of the year. Got it for $84 the last week of August but going again in January and the same room is $280!
Prós: Friendly staff. When I locked my keys in my car, they worked successfully to help me retrieve them.
Contras: Under Construction, if a property is under construction it should be noted when booking.
All of the hotel services were under par because of it
Prós: Balcony. Was able to check in at 9 am
Contras: Ordered 95 dollar room service. Filet and wings. Filet extra burnt. Wings dry and trash. Complained. Got no credit. Needed fridge to store insulin called and received 4 hours later. Asked for towels at night waited 2 hours to shower. Worst
Contras: No free wifi
Contras: You can dress a hotel up as much as you like but at the end of the day it's the little things that matter. No amount of cool design and edgy décor can cover up shoddy (and rude!) service, uncomfortable beds, loud and difficult to control air conditioning, or disappointing food and drink. The check in staff was rude, the cocktail waitress was rude and slow, the food at breakfast was cold, my room was hot and cold, and the bed had been made by someone who doesn't believe in tucking in a fitted sheet to eliminate wrinkles. Even at half the price it was a rip off.
Prós: the hotel is clean, good location & nice pools
Contras: the ocean front pool was to cold
they charge $34 a night to park
they tried to charge me $25 just to take the goodie box & alcohol out of my room - insane
Contras: Not the best or easiest to get around
Prós: Loved the glass shower and beach front view from the balcony.
Contras: Long check in wait time.
Prós: The staff was friendly and verv accommodating.
Contras: There was some confusion with the check in and check out times. The bathroom in the room lacks privacy.
Prós: Varanda. Consegui fazer o check-in às 9 am
Contras: Pedi um serviço de quarto de USD 95, filé e asinhas. O filé veio muito queimado, as asas estavam secas e joguei fora. Reclamei e não me deram nenhum crédito. Precisava de um frigorífico para armazenar a insulina, liguei e só recebi 4 horas mais tarde. Pedimos toalhas à noite esperamos 2 horas para tomar banho. O Pior
Contras: The service specially for the breakfast was very poor
Contras: EVERYTHING. I would not stay here, they are not accomodating,the staff is rude and inconsiderate. There sheets were terrible, and the room was dirty.
Prós: The staff is friendly and accumulating. Easy access to beach front. Updated lobby and rooms. Near liquor store.
Contras: Don't worth the $200+ a night rate I paid. It looks and feels like an old Holiday Inn that was renovated. The view from the rooms of the beach is only a half view as the building is blocking the rest. The carpet was stained. The shower had mold on the grout and caulked in areas. The A/C only kicked on when it wanted to. The pool is the size of an above-ground pool. I paid the rate because the reviews and pictures looked appeasing but it turned out to be a front. Also, it is not an adult only hotel; many, many families present and being very loud and obnoxious. 2-star rating. Only stay here if you find a rate for under $100 a night. Very, very disappointed.
Prós: This was a great place to stay. It was very nice and looked more modern than
most of the hotels on the strip.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
Most rooms had a beautiful view of the ocean! The higher your room the better.
Beds were very comfy.
Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator, ice bucket, 4 glasses, safe, hair dryer, shampoo/conditioner/bath gel
dispenser in shower, iron/board, mirrors on the closet doors, 2 bottles of water daily
They also offered 2 welcome drinks from the bar upon arrival, free beach towels and 2 free beach chairs
The location of this hotel was good for us. It is located at the corner of A1A and
The beach was right across the street and this section of the beach wasn't as
We did not need to rent a car. There was plenty of things within a block
surrounding the hotel.
There was a Thai sushi place, 24hr pizza place, Mediterranean/Vegan spot,
deli/sandwich shop, ice cream, popcorn, Subway, 7 Eleven.
There were also several souvenir shops, a pub and a couple of other small
We rented a scooter from Fun Rentals right behind the hotel so we could explore
a little further. Great transportation without paying for valet parking.
We also used the beach shuttle ($3/person).
Other transportation options include Trolley ($1/ride), City bus (bus stop right out
front), cab, Uber, bike rentals.
The nightlife is about a mile south of the hotel (30 min walk) on A1A.
The Galleria mall was about 1/2 mile west on Sunrise blvd...not far at all.
Overall this was a great place and we would stay here again.
Contras: The pool was sort of small though.
I would have liked a microwave as well though.
Restaurant in hotel was kind of expensive so we never ate there.
Prós: Great view, location - nice rooms. Bed was way too comfortable!
Prós: A vista do quarto, móveis, sono excelente. WiFi grátis.
Contras: Estacionamento pago. Experiência no restaurante não foi boa.
Prós: The personal are professional and very polite.
Prós: The woman at the front counter was extremely helpful and friendly. She immediately saw our daughter who is two and offered to have us a crib sent up immediately. Hotel restaurant server was also excellent. Gave us great service and the food was great.
Contras: Seemed a little too "uppity" for our family. It always seemed as if someone was looking for a tip. My husband went down to get a luggage cart to take our bags downstairs and the guy wouldn't let him have the cart. Said it was a "liability". I've been to a lot of hotels and always used my own luggage cart. It's not a liability for heavens sake. It just means someone won't get a tip. Also the bed was not very comfortable but that's just a personal opinion. It could be very comfortable to someone else.
Prós: Very comfortable bed. Rooms are nice. Location to beach is great.
Contras: Parking cost is $30/night. You can hear every sound through the door.
Prós: Room and view was wonderful! Staff was helpful, and the pool was relaxing. Loved the love music at the pool.
Contras: Breakfast at the hotel resturant cost us a pretty penny.
Prós: They complementary breakfast, and very helpful front desk, rooms were very nice, staff was very accommodating.
Contras: The renovations that was going, it was so loud.
Prós: We only stayed for 1 night. Staff was accommodating for our large group and kids for early check in and rooms. The free shuttle to the airport was one the main reasons we chose to stay there. The family was able to spend time outside in pool and lounge area. Rooms were clean and spacious.
Contras: Elevators were sooo slow. Everyone who got in the elevator with us made a comment about it. But they worked! And it's on a very busy street making it hard to walk to across to shops.
Contras: Unfriendly staff gave wrong directions to hotel
Prós: The breakfast is good. Fresh air coming in off the bay is cool and nice
Contras: The carpet is tired and dirty. In hallways and especially room 327.
Contras: Hostil equipe deu indicações erradas de hotel
Contras: When we arrived to check-in to our prepaid rooms, the lady at the front-desk told us that they overbooked and had no rooms for us. Instead, they had rooms available at their sister hotel across the street, Candlewood Suites. When we got there, they tried to charge us again for rooms we already paid for 5 months in advance. It was very upsetting but I kept my cool. Then, after we finally got settled with all our luggage and a very tired 5 year old, we found that they haven't changed their sheets. We found hair all over inside their made beds. The carpet was filthy that it turned out socks dark brown/black. We slept in spite of the icky feeling we got knowing we're sleeping in dirty sheets. We found out later that the owner owns three hotels right near each other, overbooks, then sends guests to other ones to guarantee his income. Feeling very scammed!
For our free breakfast, we walked two minutes to the third sister hotel, Holiday Inn Express whose continental breakfast was very good! We left smiling but nevertheless, I can't help feeling that we'd been had.
Prós: Krista at the front desk was exceptional. She took care of us and made our stay very enjoyable. She went out of her way to make sure all our needs were met. It is very rare to find people who will go out of their way to make sure all your needs are met and more. Krista is one of those and then some, we thank here for all she did for us.
Prós: close to the airport and port. good value. helpful staff.
Prós: Very clean hotel. The staff was excellent! Kudos to Terence T. For
taking care of us!!! Defenetly will stay there again.
Prós: THERE WAS A MCDONALDS 50 FEET AWAY.
Contras: ROOM SMELLED LIKE MILDEW WHEN WE ARRIVED
CALLED FROM AIRPORT 3 TIMES,FINALLY FOUND OUR RESERVATIONS SENT VAN WAITED OVER
2 HOURES FOR VAN DIT NOT COMENSATE US FOR WAIT SAID WE PREPAID SORRY.IF THIS IS WHAT
KAYAK HAS FOR THERE HOTELS WE WILL MOVE TO ANOTHER SITE.
Prós: The staff and food quality were excellent. The hotel grounds and facilities spacious and easy. Special kudos to the bar wait staff and bartender... friendly, accommodating, and excellent.
Contras: Noise from the parking lot activity, the outside hallway and from the airport kept me awake all night.
Prós: The staff was awesome, Everyone was very friendly and willing to make our stay memorable. Our balcony was so relaxing after a long flight, we enjoyed looking out at the beautiful garden area.
Contras: This hotel is showing its years and definately needs an overhaul. I'd say skip it.
Contras: Parking was $25
Prós: Comfort, atmosphere.
Staff was friendly, helpful.
Outdoor walking from place to place (i.e. room to room, room to pool)
Contras: Food was not good and not enough a variety.
Laundry facilities not in the building.
Wine was way overpriced.
Prós: Everyone was very nice and knowledgeable
Contras: I liked everything
Prós: Pool lounge and pool staff were very friendly and accommodating as was the bellmen. Lots of things tho do for kids.
Contras: Breakfast menu at Mariners was very overpriced and of little value including drinks. Women's poolside restroom didn't have functioning locks on stalls.
Prós: A beautiful place and always feels like you are on a luxury vacation. The lobby bar is one of the best hotel bars ever.
Contras: I am concerned my credit card will be used under someone else's name as my bill I received was incorrect at the end of my stay and had the incorrect t address on the statement... Every time I've been to the hotel the check in is a huge issue and great area of concern... Honestly, limits my likeliness to return due to headache of rooms are never ready (I checked in last time the room wasn't ready until after 6p and this time I checked in at 4p and had to choose a room on a lower floor due to room on the original was not ready).
Prós: My boyfriend and I flew in from out of town and stayed here this past week for 3 days. Everything was amazing; the front desk was very professional and polite. Room service was great and accommodating. I loved the spa pool and pool side bar. The view of the marina from our room was breath taking. We will definitely be staying here again when we fly in for Christmas.
Prós: The pool area was very nice and great location on the water close to the beach
Contras: I reserved a room with a king size bed. When I arrived I was told there was none available and was given a room with two queen size beds. They seemed smaller than queen and were definitely cheap mattresses. Very uncomfortable. Also the wallpaper was peeling off the walls and there was mold on the walls. Definitely not a 4 star!
Contras: Hotel did not look the same as pictures displayed online. The room smelling like old cigarette smell it wasn't a balcony either
Prós: My family has stayed in this hotel every year for five years over spring break. We have seen it transition from the Sheraton to B Ocean Resorts. It seems the hotel is less interested in families and more interested in catering to singles.
Contras: 1. Loud music constantly played in the lobby even at 6:00 when you just want to quietly start your day with coffee and quiet.
2. Called room service and went straight to voice mail. Called again and they hung up.
3. The onsite restaurant, Naked Crab, had limited choices for kids and was very expensive.
Prós: Beach access was nice, but there are better places to stay in the area
Contras: Once we arrived, we were told we have to pay a huge resort fee. Everything you want to do costs extra. Parking was $35/night - which they don't disclose until you arrive.
Prós: Front desk was very kind and helpful. Gym was very nice and clean, but would recommend having antibacterial wipes/spray to clean equipment off after you use. Beach area was beautiful along with pool. Wish you guys had almond milk available in little breakfast area.
Contras: In the hotel room, it did seem a little dirty. In the hallway down towards the room there was always a "funny" smell in the hallway that lasted the whole time. On the last day, we found a large toenail by bathroom door and was very dingy/dirty was adjoining door to the room next to us.
Prós: I booked a room at B Ocean Resort for NYE and the following night.
First, I was assigned the wrong room in the wrong tower. The second day, our access card didn't work anymore, because the room was not properly registered as a back-to-back reservation.
Second, while we ended up getting a room with lcean view, the sink wasn't properly working.
Third, and the worst part about it, B Ocean Resort charger my credit card randomly with bills that I never signed off for. I had about 6 charges for random amounts on my bill, but had only signed one final bill at checkout.
Lastly, the food is very expensive. For instance, we ordered one yoghurt as room service for breakfast and the bill, including taxes and tip was $20 (!)
For a 4 stars "resort" I would expect way better service and staff, particularky considering their pricing. Billing my card with unauthorized charges is unacceptable!
Prós: Nice People
Contras: Paying for parking across the street $30.00 a day, You are paying to stay there your parking should be free.
Prós: Just one cleaning lady was nice.
Contras: Construction guys everywhere, noise, dust,smell.all restaurants in hotel closed! Second pool closed!SKYWALK-CLOSED! each time you go across the road with kids.Terrible experience this year.will never stop there again and will never recommend it to my friends!
Prós: pool and right on the beach
Contras: under construction. but can't help that
Prós: Checked in at the B Ocean in Fort Lauderdale beach, the phone in the room wasn't working most of the time, staff said that they would send a tech to fix it, but no one never came. Ordered room service, waited two hours for them to tell me that the menu that was in the room was an outdated menu which they originally brought me when I had to order, cause there was no menu in the room, so it took me about 3 hours to get some dining in my room. And to have this room cleaned, I had to call at least twice to tell them to send someone to clean the room, and when they finally came, some supervisor came up to room 792 with an attitude to tell me that they were busy and that's why it took them so long. Overall, I will never stay at this hotel anymore, and recommended no one to stay here either.
Contras: Service is extremely bad.
Contras: Everything at this hotel is broken, elevators, phones, the Skywalk that takes you from one side to the other. The pool is small and there is only 1 bathroom for everyone, the line was at least half hour long all day. It was faster to walk the 2 blocks, cross traffic and climb the stairs to use the bathroom in your room than wait in line, or walk to the beach, which it seemed mist were doing, and use nature's facilities. They also charge $20 a day to park you car and another $20 for resort fees, I'm not sure where that money goes, since everything is broke and the pool is the almost the smallest I've ever seen at a hotel besides a few motel 8's.
Prós: The pool right on the beach are awesome. You can sit in the pool and watch the TVs at the pool bar. The mermaid show is great and I have seen it about 5 times now.
Contras: We were not informed that it was under major renovation. The bar in our building didn't open until 5:30. There used to be two bars but one is now closed for renovation. Since there were no vending machines on the hall floors, if you wanted a soda or otherwise you only had one option. Walk out, across the parking lot to a different building (also under renovation) and go to the pool bar. I couldn't even find where breakfast was. If we were just informed of the renovations we would have simply waited a bit to go. I was so dissatisfied we probably wont go back.
Prós: The best part of the resort/hotel was location. Depending on what building you stay at, the beach was within walking distance. Also, many restaurants and activities weren't far away.
Contras: We had to use our cell phones to call the front desk, because the speed dial numbers on the hotel phones would ring busy when we call. Also, called for a wake up call, which we never received. Housekeeping would not come or would come in the late afternoon, when we get back from our outings; often times the hallway and under the bed was not cleaned up. When we went to the beach, we were told to raise a flag (which was provided on a pole) when we would like to have bar staff come to see what we need. No one ever came to check on anyone on the beach. The resort fee (according to Delta Vacations) includes 2 beach chairs, 2 bottles of water, 2 signature drinks, 2-2hr bike rental, board games, sand toys, each day. However when asked, I was told the signature drinks were discontinued from the resort fee 2 years ago. Overall, the value for what we paid was not worth it, and do not plan on going back. The pictures from the website are not a good representation of facilities or service. Renovation can only improve appearance.
Prós: The room was quiet and clean and had the usual Westin amenities.
Contras: No one was at the elevator to the beach so anyone could use the pool and they did. It was ridiculously crowded with people not even staying at the hotel. I had the choice to pay more for a resort fee (35.00+10.00) for chairs on the beach except there were none. The bathroom door was a slider w a 2" gap along w shutters that faced the room which didn't close properly so little privacy in the restroom. The carpet was worn and rippled. The worst of it was the parking: 39.00 a day but at 9pm my partner was called into work. I wanted to return alone but they informed me I'd pay 39.00 + 25.00 for the time we had been there. 64.00 for one day is ridiculous. No self parking, so one is at the mercy of the valet Mafia. Never again. I am a Starwood member and have stayed at many of their properties but this was the worst experience I've ever had.
Prós: they upgraded my room!
They are nice
Prós: Judy was fantastic.
Contras: Cost of drinks.
Prós: We were greeted as we got out of the car and as soon as you walk into the hotel there was fresh fruit infused water and Olympic cookies.
Room was clean and big enough for our group.
The pool staff was SUPERB! Our waiter, Emanuel, always made sure we were taken care of and Judy made sure we always had the best seats by the pool.
The gym was well equipped and even offered cold towels and fruit. Plus there was a great view of the ocean.
My group will stay here every time we are in the area!
Contras: $30 a day resort fee.
Prós: The location was great, was never loud in the area. Beach is right out the front door. Great food within .5 mile walk. walk down to Las Olas for food and fun.
Contras: For a young couple, we still paid about 2x as much as our kayak rental. It is $40 a day to park your car, and it's only valet, it's unlimited use of your car, but then you add tips. There is a resort fee not included, which is not too expensive. And we did choose to pay $25 extra a night for a view, which was worth it. Pool food is not great, and service is slow-- but go down to Las Olas for food and fun.
Prós: Great ocean view good location
Contras: Resort hits you with lots of fees
Prós: Pool, easy access to beach, towel and toy rental, away from restaurant/bar strip, walking distance to cvs for essentials and alcohol, easy access to Sun Trolley and bus to get to stores, museum, downtown.
Contras: Expensive, resort fee, in-house restaurants served bad food and were very expensive, no close by family friendly cheaper food options, expensive beach chair and umbrella rentals, far from grocery store and other shopping
Prós: The people who work there are super friendly and helpful. Excellent!
Prós: Storm met us at the taxi and escorted in and to our room
His smile and warm demeanor set the tone for our short stay. He was excellent
Prós: Excellent location right on the beach, awesome customer service & extremely friendly and helpful staff. I will definitely be coming back again both for business and with my family for leisure time!
Prós: Good location. Great views on beach side.
Contras: I don't like being quoted a price on kayak.com paying that price and then having to pay a resort fee when I get there....especially when I don't know what my $60 resort fee got me. There were towels at the pool. Was that it?
Went across the street to the beach, we swam and layed on lounge chairs under an umbrella...then a hotel staffer sats we either need to pay... $20/umbrella or $6/chair....why did I pay $60 in resort fees and I can't use a chair?
No airport shuttle and outright dishonesty on pricing. I may stay there again, but I'm never paying a resort fee with no benefits again.
Prós: Location was convenient. Starbucks on site, which was great.
Contras: There was no communication between staff. One person told you it was okay to do something and another person said it wasn't okay. They also charge you "service" charges and don't mention that means tip so you pay tip twice unless you ask.
Prós: The staff were incredibly helpful and very friendly. Easily some of the best service I've ever received at a hotel.
Contras: The toilet was leaking and the A/C unit was extremely loud.
Prós: Decent view
Contras: Over priced. Many hidden fees.
$22.00 for parking
$7.00 for WiFi (no free wifi)
$18.00 for breakfast (no free breakfast)
18% hidden gratuity on food orders
Will not be back.
Contras: For the price, the hotel room is dated, ugly and the beds and sheets are small and uncomfortable. I was traveling for work and I arrived at the hotel late, just looking for a comfortable nights' sleep before leaving early the next day. I did not find that. It was a sad room to call home for the night, especially for the price. I also waited for 30 minutes to check in while there was only one person working at reception and they were helping another guest. When you're exhausted and know that you'll only get a few hours of sleep, this becomes frustrating. Maybe this place is good for someone staying longer and can take advantage of the location.
Prós: Loved the location. There were so many places within walking distance. And not too far away by car were several plazas with shopping and eateries.
Contras: Not really a spot for childless couples to get away. But we made the best of it.
Prós: The rooms were clean
Contras: When I arrived we were informed that the water main has been shut down and the water is not for drinking or showering. The hotel said we can get a reservation down the road(horrible location) and will cancel our reservation if we would like. The couldn't even guarantee the same rate at the other hotel. Usually when a huge inconvenience like this happens, things are comped and rooms upgraded, this was not the case and was told we could basically stay at the hotel where we made a reservation over a month in advance, or we could leave. I chose to stay because I didn't want to gamble with another hotel that I had done no research on. My experience with Bahia mar was terrible as far as customer service and guest relations
Prós: We were walking distance from the beach literally across the street. Also on a very popular strip close to many bars, restaurants and novelty shopping. And pretty much less than a 15 minute drive from anywhere we wanted to go.
Contras: "Liquor Store" across the street was deceiving as it had very little liquor BUT did have Fatt Tuesday Slushies. Oh also they charge $25 a day for self parking & $30 a day valet ON TOP OF a $50 per day hold (that is returned 1-5 days after you check out). Besides that
Prós: Really nothing stood out
Contras: Construction around the pool all day,Bathtubs water disnt drain,room smelled,loud music coming from next room over every night..very bad time
Prós: Great location. Easy to walk to the beach, nice hotel pool and friendly staff.
Contras: Parking costs $26/day, but most lots around there are $40, so I guess that's kind of a deal.
Prós: Great location to everything
Contras: Emir the front desk attendant pick and choose who can stay at this hotel, very racist, if you don't fit a certain description or you look as though you don't fit into an elit group, your resavation will be cancelled or you will be offered a room at a higher rate..will not stay or recommend to any one ...
Prós: very nice staff and helpful, I also enjoyed the bar downstairs. The location is good as it is far away enough from the hustle and bustle of the main drag, but is still walkable.
Contras: the vending machines were not functioning and the interior hallways were very hot.
Prós: pool area was lovely, food ordered from restaurant was the best I've had in a long time, excellent service from the Australian lady at the Tiki Bar- thank you for your friendliness and kindness.
Prós: Nice Tiki Bar by the pool. Friendly bartender.
Contras: Hotel needs some TLC
Prós: Airport and cruise service was very good. Beds were comfortable. The Food offerings were good ! All in all a good stay !
Contras: Needs some renovation but it checked off most of our Needs boxes !
Prós: The room was clean
Contras: It was far from everything, staff came off a bit rude
Prós: The only reason I gave it a two star is because of the transportation they provided to and from the airport and to the port.
Contras: Most of the staff is very unfriendly. I was late for the free breakfast so I had to pay, that's not the problem. The problem was the female waitress was rude very unfriendly and unwilling to want to take our order. Once we got ready to pay our total was $14.65 off by a few cents. We gave her a 20, but only came back with $4.00. I complained she went back into the kitchen and brought me another $1.25. Still short..it's disappointing to think that management is proud of running this kind of establishment. Ramada left a very bad taste in my mouth.
Prós: The man at the front desk was very nice and did not to get ruffled when we didn't have the credit card we used to book the room.
Contras: The hotel was a little tired, but it was clean.
Prós: They had a shuttle to pick you up from the airport and they had a bus that would take you to your cruise port which was amazing. Made our trip much better and easier. It was also nice and quiet.
Prós: From the time we called for driver to pick us up to the time we checked out. Everything was done professional with the staff. The breakfast, housekeeping and front desk.
Prós: Free shuttle service to and from ft lauderdale airport . Cheap shuttle to Miami port . Shuttle service to port of Miami was $15.90 pp. in case you're flying on one of the airlines that only fly to ft lauderdale airport. Great value overall .
Contras: No convenience stores, banks etc. within walking distance .
The rooms were clean, The staff was helpful,
The Breakfast was okay, I did not have to wait long for the Airport pick up.
Contras: The elevator could have been a little cleaner, you accessed it from the courtyard so i guess a lot of sand
and grit is carried in directly from the outside,
Prós: so disappointed for the cost. Poor arrangements from the airport-had to keep calling back to Ramada " in 15 min.-in another 15 min" for the motel computers to load so clerk could verify we were registered guests before they would send the shuttle. Rooms were very poor repair with chipping paint and wide gaps around door-air conditioner was LOUD and very dated.
Prós: Location was close to port Everglades for our cruise. They also set up transportation after the cruise back to the airport. Everything went perfect. I would stay again if cruising out of Fort Lauderdale.
Prós: Great location on the beach.
Lunch in restaurant great
Contras: Rooms dated. And overpriced for a motel type room
Lobby beautiful. Too bad rooms contradict
Restaurant.... Lunch great....dinner not good quality and overpriced.
No complimentary coffee in lobby.. even though water in rooms was yellow. Had to go off site to get coffee.. would not recommend to others. Sadly
Prós: That was next to the beach only
Contras: Horrible by not having all elevators working right.mostly all the time had to get the stairs and it seemed to not care
Prós: I liked the location. Having the pool right by the beach was really great. The beach is great also.
Contras: Be prepared to wait a long time for ONE elevator. I was on the third floor and had a stroller. There was never room to get on. I waited 15 minutes and finally made staff get off to let me go down. Also I suggest not going around spring break time. The beaches and hotel are packed with drunk college students.
Contras: Rude night clerk that greeted us. Old food in the vending machine that only take chaneed or dollars no larger bill changers anywhere. If not for the night clerk they would have gotten 5 stars from me everyone else was extremely friendly.
Prós: Good: on the beach location
Not so good: daily parking fee
Contras: Not impressed with the overall condition.
Prós: We really liked the atmosphere and the staff. Everyone was helpful and fun to talk too. The beach view is great! The Tiki bar was fun and efficient!
Prós: Beach front location, relatively quiet . Bed was comfortable and seemed clean. , .
Contras: - Room was very dark, old beaten up furniture,
- very small sink area and bathroom,
- air conditioner was not possible to shut off or adjust, it was unnecessary noisy and cold in the room.
- terrible pillows, used my own travel pillow
- Kind of very gloomy depressing room.
- very cold inside lobby and restaurant. weather was rainy but staying inside was even worse
Prós: View was fantastic. Front desk was excellent in getting our rooms near each other. Couldn't have asked for anything better.
Contras: Guess the only thing I didn't like was paying $18 per day for parking whether you parked it yourself or used valet.
Prós: Clean friendly staff. Drinks great!
Contras: That I had to leave.
Prós: We stayed 3 days it was nice my kids enjoy it alot, you have the pool and the beach right there,it was awsome, the location was great you have a big Boulevard of restaurants, cafe,a small mall...all in front of the beach...
Contras: I did not like that you have to rent the chair and umbrella,of the beach that should be included,
Contras: Rooms need update. Lobby and the other parts of hotel have been updated.
Prós: Complimentary shuttle (both for airport and cruise port) and complimentary breakfast, and at a good price. Good restaurants not far away, as well as a Target and grocery store.
Contras: The shuttle service was terrible. When I called for pick up I was told 30 minutes; it took 45. A lady that I sat by while waiting had called 45 minutes before me, and she and I ended up in the same shuttle. For the cruise port, I couldn't get the shuttle time I wanted, but the next day another guest told me that in fact, there had been a slot open. On top of that, the cruise shuttles were running 30-45 minutes late.
Prós: good location
Contras: There was a rate change (downward) so I could have paid less approx 45$ total - but i guess if the rate went up i would not have paid more. so you take your chances.
Prós: Pool bar
Contras: The property advertises a "free airport shuttle". On calling from the airport at noon they said it would be a 2-3 hour wait, stating that traffic was heavy due to a local boat show. In fact they were using the shuttle for both airport runs and to transport people to and from the boat show, likely charging a fee for the later. We chose to spend $35 on a cab.
Also, they charged a $15 "resort fee" on arrival. This is a standard motel location in a busy urban area. There is no resort per se, unless having a pool turns it into a resort. The fee appears to be an additional revenue for the motel, similar to airlines adding fees for baggage, etc.
Prós: Pool area was nice. It is a place to sleep and staff is friendly.
Contras: would not stay longer than 3 or 4 days....
Prós: Front desk personnel were excellent
Contras: I did not like that I arranged my reservation online and I could not get a refund. I planned the Disney cruise for my kids and I 1/10/16. I booked this hotel in advance and paid for my flights in advance. I did not know my flight was cancelled I made it to the airport. I had to pay an extra $1,000 on way for my kids and I could fly to Miami. We arrived in Miami after midnight then immediately left for the cruise. I was calling to get a refund but I turned down. I would like a refund
Prós: We stayed at the hotel during holidays season so the price was higher than during weekdays/low season. Our room was large,and has a fridge. Location was great. We went around with bus and shuttle service from-to the airport. But the hotel def needs a renovation.
Prós: Excellently maintained facility. Nice bar & pool area.
Prós: Área da piscina era agradável. É um lugar para dormir e a equipe é amigável.
