Fort Lauderdale places to stay ON the beach not across

I need help finding a place to stay on the beach in Fort Lauderdale. A lot of what I am seeing is one block away or across the street from it. I want the best place to stay on it. It can be a hotel or condo it doesnt matter to me. Thanks!

The Pelican Grande is on the beach. The Sea Lord in Lauderdale by the Sea is on the beach too.

You seems to be looking for LBTS (Lauderdale-By-The-Sea).

There are several motels right on the sand.

Also, it has a nice little shopping area.

Lago Mar or Marriott Harbor Beach are the best in my opinion.

The majority of hotels in Ft. Lauderdale are across the street from the beach, not on it. Something to do with shadows from the hotels interfering with the sun and restricting views. It does make for a beautiful wide beach; wish more cities would have adopted that. If you have to stay on the beach and aren't interested in the two hotels in FTL already mentioned, you need to stay in Hollywood Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Pompano Beach or Deerfield Beach.

My family and I just stayed at the Lago Mar in July 2013 for the first time. Honestly, I cannot say enough GOOD about this resort. We have stayed in many high end resorts/hotels all over the world and this rates right up there at a 10. Everything was pristine clean, the grounds were immaculate. The staff at the hotel whether it was the front desk or out by the pool to housekeeping were all fabulous. The food in the restaurant was very good as well. You really could not go wrong with the Lago Mar. I've already rebooked us for 2014 we loved it so much! : )

Is price an issue in your choice- if so , dates and a budget will be helpful- as prices fluctuate. As others have said, there are limited choices on the beach in Ft. Lauderdale itself- no condos at all that I know of that rent less than a one month minimum period . The other smaller towns very close by ( just north and south )already mentioned might have small condos but again most have minimum rentals to discourage transients in their regulations- so for short term a hotel or time share rental are probably the options.- Lauderdale by the Sea is so close by most don't know it is a separate town,.
