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 Ordered room service, waited two hours for them to tell me that the menu that was in the room was an outdated menu which they originally brought me when I had to order, cause there was no menu in the room, so it took me about 3 hours to get some dining in my room.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. Service is extremely bad.
The staff was terrific and welcoming, the renovatied rooms were lovely, the pool is amazing We didn't care for the onsite restaurants. However the wreck was fun and we enjoyed the mermaid show.
Beach access was nice, but there are better places to stay in the area 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.
View 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.
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. 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.
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. 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.
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. 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.
Nice People Paying for parking across the street $30.00 a day, You are paying to stay there your parking should be free.
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!
pool and right on the beach under construction. but can't help that
Just one cleaning lady was nice. 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!
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. 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.
Immediately pulling up you know this is going to be a beautiful place to stay! Staff was very nice and knowledgeable. Rooms were great and best of all we were right on the beach! Having Starbucks in the hotel was awesome! I would definitely go back!
Beautiful location. Staff were friendly and always willing to go out of there way. Clean and comfortable rooms. Loved pool restaurant. Access to the beach was perfect. You can see hotel is showing some age. Hard to listen to people talk about how they paid half your price to be there. Should be more consistent with price.
Great location to everything
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. the vending machines were not functioning and the interior hallways were very hot.
The rooms were clean 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
Great location easy access in the heart of everything Staff was friendly and pleasant everyone smiled and said hello Some items that are a challenge $21 a day to park $20 a day for the Internet some of the areas seem to be unkept the needed some cleaning.
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.
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 ...
Location is nice $21.00 a day parking, expensive internet service. CAUTION, they have a 4 story motor lodge that is nothing like the photos they show of the rooms. It's a dive for the price! That's were we got put and we will never be back! I'd avoid this property. And the water is yellow.
Great location. Easy to walk to the beach, nice hotel pool and friendly staff. Parking costs $26/day, but most lots around there are $40, so I guess that's kind of a deal.
Really nothing stood out Construction around the pool all day,Bathtubs water disnt drain,room smelled,loud music coming from next room over every night..very bad time
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. Not really a spot for childless couples to get away. But we made the best of it.
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. "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
Location Check in
Room was large, tiled floor in part, huge windows looking out at ocean; pool towels; Pool was small and very dirty, no room service menu in room; need to leave a card to hang on door for room service breakfast; restaurant closed; mid day, no hot tub; pool is shaded after noon because of building location, which can be a pro or a con
Everything. REALLY enjoyed MYSELF NOTHING BUT LOVE
Great location, spacious room Pool area lacking, lots of young spring break students-loud and rude.
Close to everything. $31 per night for parking.
Great location right across from the beach, very friendly/helpful staff. Rooms were clean. As in other reviews they are still working on the elevators which leads to a decent wait and then filling up quickly. We were in the 12th floor (top floor) which made it a lot easier to access the elevator then the middle/lower floors. If the elevators were fully working then I'd have no reason not to give this hotel a 5 star rating based on my experience.
Location and rooms were nice enough. The valet service was very good. Pool bar personnel were great. Elevators didn't work very well - took the stairs often. I thought the cost of the in-hotel restaurant was pricey for Starbucks style food. Pool facilities weren't great - not enough towels
clean and nice place to stay.....across from the beach and close to everything!!!will stay here again. nothing!!!
Any one could come to the pool. And all the card keys didn't work outside.Not very secure. Over all it's a very nice hotel.Room was great.
Daryl Fuentes and Patrick were working the front desk onThursday during the day. They were very helpful when I had an administrative task I couldnt complete for a business portion of my trip. Additionally they, and the rest of the staff during my time there know hospitality naturally and made my staff wonderful after a long flight and a last minute booking. Thank you again to the whole staff!
Proximity to the beach. Not ocean front but close to beach..short walk. Free breakfast was nice. Good value for the price. Hotel is dated but room was spacious and clean. Staff were pleasant. Nothing really. It looks like the hotel is possibly in the process of renovating. The rooms seem to have been updated but hallways and exterior could be updated. The railing on the terrace outside our room was broken; potentially dangerous e.g for families with small children.
Great Value for money, excellent location, friendly restaurant and very good breakfast. In the booking page and hote internet page it says the parking costs 5 oer dy but it costs 10.
Convenient location to the beach, restaurants and shopping Maid service was late afternoon
Staff were extremely efficient & pleasant. Location was ideal for my business needs
the room was clean the breakfast was terrible
Liked the buffet breakfast! Didn't like the hard beds.
It was a short distance to catch the water taxi. The room was too small for the 4 of us. Even the double beds were not big enough. The breakfast was not much of a choice. The smell of the hall on our floor was not appealing. The verandah was dirty so we stayed only in our room.. We clearly did not get value for money. I can say this because the first half of our vacation was spent at the Crowne Plaza and we spent less on our stay there. Then we moved to this hotel for a different experience by the sea but clearly it was a step down. This hotel is worth less than what we spent.
Staff was great. Got room with a good view. Cute room. Nice tv. Thought I would be able to see the ocean from hotel. Room smelled funky. Balcony isn't private.
Good deal for the price.
Convenient location to the city beach Run down with a lot of paint to look good (2 star to look like a 4 star) 1 elevator for guest and staff ( sometimes a long wait) When looking at the hotel online ALL the pictures were air brushed.
staff were excellent, position was close to port, and las Olas Initial appearance of hotel was alittle run down, although the rooms had been renovated and were clean.good for the price
The breakfast included The lobby is not updated , it looks old , I walked shoesless and the carpet in the hall way was wet. the rooms are much better than the rest of the hotel facilities.
We stayed at the Bahia cabana two years ago in March. Compared to then, the hotel has seen some renovations and a new owner we were told. We arrived a day early and they were happy to give us the room for the extra night. The location is great, right across the street from the beach and a short walk down the strip to the A1A for shopping, food, and drinks. We booked 3 months early and got rooms for less than $100 a night which is next to impossible for a decent hotel, and with the new renovations, this is a decent hotel. They charge $13 a day for a parking pass as well as there are only tow away zones in the area. When we arrived at 10pm we noticed our bed frame was broken. In the morning our shower wouldn't drain. We told the front desk and they came and fixed the drain. When our friends arrived to use the other bed they found that their bed frame was broken also. We were sitting on a picnic table outside talking to another guest and he said all of the beds around here are broken. If you are a family do not book over spring break! It would be worth it to you to spend extra money to get away from the rowdiness. (8+ spring breakers in hot tub swapping spit and some rooms are right above bar area which is open late and gets loud)
I really enjoyed listening to drunks slamming doors, falling all over the floor above mine, and hearing their highly intellectual conversations at 3am. I can't wait to pay an exuberant amount for such a unique experience again! What's not to like in paying over $130 to stay in a zero star motel? Best course of action: have the city turn this place into a museum to teach people what life was like as one of the first settlers of America.
Located directly on the yacht marina. Water Taxi, Dinner Boat, and beach are footsteps away. Rooms are clean but small and dated. The attraction factor is the character of the on-site resturants/bar, pool, hot pool area. Small gift store/convenience in the lobby. Sells beer. Live band, atmosphere is really cool! Beds are comfortable and all rooms are equipped with fridge and microwave. Food at the resturant is great! Big portions, reasonable priced. Also a fresh market that caters to the yacht customers is steps away and serves fresh breakfast, gormae coffees, salads, sandwiches, etc. We stay here every time we Cruise with Royal Carribean. It is only 3 miles from the port. Very convenient ! Parking is valet and charged $13 per night extra. Vehicles are double parked due to space restrictions and if you are on the outside parking space, you must leave your keys with the 24 hr attendant in case they need to move your vehicle to let the one behind out.. Nice that your vehicle is consistently under guard though... The attendants are extremely nice and try to accommodate you in every way. We have a large 3500 dually. They reserved the end space for us when we left for 2hrs, and came back.
The location was great. Just across from a beautiful beach. Reataurant and bar on site is a definate plus. For the money, room should have a view. The room was nice but bathroom defiantely needs to be updated.
I liked the proximity to the beach. It is right across the street and you can just walk over while leaving your car at the hotel. The staff was very friendly and made the stay better. Some of the buildings are on site and another building is half a block a way. Although I did not care about the walk, it felt more like an older motel. The beds and linen were brand new and very comfortable. However, the bathroom had the bare minimum upgrades done. All in all, it was what I expected when consist he prices of other properties this close to the ocean.
Good location and tiki bar Way overpriced for the boat show. TV and WiFi didn't work. Noisy air conditioning.
This is funky Florida. The hotel and bar have been there forever and lots of heavy drinking has taken place. They have attempted to put lipstick on a pig - with paint over cracks and tile jobs not finished - but for my purposes it was cheap, funky, clean and RIGHT across the street from the beach. Totally worth the price
The one thing is the staff is nice. Dirty, loud, old, not updated at all. Would never go back!
this place had a shady vibe, reminded me of the meth hotel in breaking bad
The fridge was huge had a nice flat screen tv 2 min walk to the beach 15min walk from the strip Parking wasn't the best. My wife woke up to a big on her I know it's fl and it was a cheap place to stay but she didn't think it was funny as I did. Also they forgot to remove the dead hooker from our bath tub before we got in the room.
I really loved how this hotel was right by the beach, and was somewhat secluded. the dogs barking all night kept me up all night.
The location to the beach. The T.V. did not work, the telephone did not work, and the light in the bathroom did not work either!
The fridge only. I should go with bed bug and mosquito repellent It's a place for junky. Nothing is good about that place. I won't stay there anymore even for free
staff was very helpful and friendly and nice quiet place. n/a
