The Nautical Beachfront Resort
Ranked #6 of 24 Hotels in Lake Havasu City
Reviewed 14 February 2014

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at The Nautical in January 2014. The room was very spacious and accommodating. The furnishings are a bit dated but the rooms are very clean. We checked the room thoroughly and found everything clean and neat. They only have rooms with 2 queen size beds (I would say closer to a double) so if you are looking for a king bed, you are out of luck.
The pool area is beautiful and quite relaxing. The pool bar was not open when we were visiting but I am sure when they are busier it would be a great place to get a drink and hang out. The bar they did have open had a great happy hour in the afternoon. The bartender was awesome and the local patrons were very friendly.
The restaurant has a bit to be desired. We went in for lunch and it was okay, nothing special. We went back for dinner as they were offering a bucket of chicken. Needless to say, I think they had more guests than they were planning on and ran out of the chicken right away. Our server was very gracious and was able to offer a replacement. I think if there is any area for improvement I would say the restaurant good use a better back-of-the-house team. The servers were friendly and tried to make up the best they could for the kitchens mishaps.
Overall the guest staying were friendly, the view beautiful and the rooms spacious!

Room Tip: I would ask for an upper room facing the bay.

Dear Sue S

Thank you for the review! It sounds like you and your husband really enjoyed your stay at the resort. WE do have a few rooms that have king size beds but the majority of the rooms have two queens and a separate sitting area with a sofa sleeper. Our pool area is relaxing right know, and yes during our spring/summer season which is our busier time of year the bar area is open. The restaurant on site The Turtle grill does have a great happy hour special and weekly specials sorry to hear that they did not have the chicken for you but I’m glad that the staff was able to accommodate you. I will pass on your comments the managers at the restaurant. Looking forward to your return visit…

I went over labor day weekend was pleasantly surprised. Lots of young fun energy. The pool is absolutely stunning. This resort is literally beach front. I think it is one of the coolest locations in the Lake Havasu area. They have a beachy club/bar which was a fun place for me and my friends to hang out after hours.

My first impression after checking into The Nautical Resort was: "You gotta be kidding me". This place is listed in a "high trade value" segment of Interval International"s list of exchangeable resorts. The review on the resort posted on II's website was quite impressive.
Obviously pictures taken of the resort can be misleading. Trouble was, the pictures of the rooms in the units were obviously from another place. Nothing in our unit looks ANYTHING like what we have. The entire unit has an area of about 300 square feet. I traded a 1200 square foot unit for this. No stove, no room, no pets...I ain't got nothin' but regrets!
Seriously, the Nautical is old, quite dilapidated, and leaves a great deal to be desired.
Unless you want the feeling of camping on Lake Havasu, there is no reason to stay in this place, because it is very similar to camping in a motor home.

Dear David F.

I’m glad that we had a chance to talk about your concerns today and that you have an understanding between The Nautical Beachfront Resort and the First Cabin Club (the timeshare component on site.) First Cabin Club is located at The Nautical Beachfront Resort and we do assist them with checking in there guest, but they are separate from the resort. I’m glad you are enjoying the resort amenities and the beautiful weather we are having in Lake Havasu…

Thank you

We stayed here a couple of nights while attending at the Balloon Festival.
All rooms have a view at the lake and are at "the beach".
Spacious room, clean and large dubble sink.
Wifi is really slow and almost hopeless...
Pool is a great and quiet area.
There are no ice machines: you get 2 bags of ice per day per room.

Room Tip: rooms at beach level have a nicer sitting area, rooms at street level are easier to get your Luggage...

Beautiful location and the employees are just wonderful. They're just as excited that you're there, which is refreshing as most people hate their jobs.
Every room is on the water, hard to beat that and its super close to anything you might want to do.,,,or you can just chill at the on site turtle grill on the water drink margaritas and eat the famous berry hot chicken wings....omg delicious!
We will be back, also there's a golf course so if you want you can play there for free too, we did that and had a blast!
PHENOMENAL! We'll be back and soon!

Room Tip: loved the rooms in bldgs. E, F, or G because of the beach location.

We enjoyed our stay here from beginning to end. We spent 5 nights here, it was quiet, which we liked a lot. It has a wonderful bar restaurant and little store right on property. The view was beautiful. The rooms were old but very clean and neat. The service was pretty good as well. We watched the football games on Sunday in their bar, could see any game you wanted and the specials for football Sunday were wonderful. We had such a fantastic time here and will be coming back. It was their off season and so may not be so quiet other times of the year but this is the time of year we usually visit Havasu City and it fits us perfect. No complaints for this place. It is conventiently located anything you would need!
