We have stayed at the Kira-Mar twice and both times had an excellent stay. It is a small boutique hotel (8 one bedrooms and 1 two bedroom plus dock space.). The rooms have all been modernized, and all come with a kitchen. Huge pool. Big BBQ you can use with lots of tables. While off the main roads, so very quiet, it is a quick walk to Las Olas (shopping/restaurants) and 5 minute drive to the beach. Best of all is the friendly helpful service of its managers, Reggie and Natalie. Much better stay than in a large hotel.

We had stayed at one of the big ocean front hotels for the 1st 5 days of our trip and all I can say is what a relief to get to the Kira Mar. Small and quaint with a real homey feel. The owners had just left for vacation but their daughter and housekeeping staff were there and they were wonderful. The room was ready for us and we didnt have to wait. It was a one bedroom with livingroom, dining area and kitchen. It was spotless and very comfortable. While we only stayed here for two days it was so relaxing, close to all the action but far enough away that we found it very quiet. We loved it and would highly reccomend!

I was there when the owners were on vacation. They had no backup for cleaning the rooms. Instead, the cleaning or sweeping the rooms was so minor that they may as well not have bothered. Supposedly, the owners are great people according to the reviews on this board. I wish I got the chance to experience the warmth and hospitality they give. Instead, I was told they were in Chicago.

This was my first stay and Kira Mar with a group of friends for a Bachelorette party the past July 4th weekend.. and I was very happy. The quiet at night is a huge plus and the location cannot be beat. The place was spacious and everything is clean and in working order. We were taken care of by a lovely couple Nathalie and Reggie. Nathalie was extremely attentive and made us very comfortable. I will definitely being coming back to Kira mar on my next trip to Florida.

I stayed here over the 4th of July weekend with a group of 15 people. The location was ideal (a mere 10 minutes from clubs, high end shopping boutiques and restaurants). Taxis are plentiful in this area so our group really appreciated a very short wait when in need of a lift here and there. The location is reminiscent of a vintage hotel, but with very modern accommodations. There are about 7 parking spots (should you decide to get a rental car) that are right outside the premise. The 1 and 2 bedroom units are all very nice. They were spacious,clean, and had flat screen tv's.

Pros: nice pool, well lit at night, free breakfast, washer/dryer on the location, cool retro hotel feel, close to shopping/clubs, daily housekeeping,friendly managers that live at the location

Cons: my bed was not very comfortable nor were the pillows

Impressive Moment: our air conditioning went out in our unit and one of the managers arrived within 5 minutes to check it out. He had a professional come to fix it within an hour or so. I've very rarely witnessed such prompt service in my years of traveling.

Room Tip: Fork over the extra dough for a suite. Cool view of waterfront.
