“had a ball!”
Reviewed 8 December 2010

I'm a travel agent so can be critical but if you are wanting a good old fashion comfortable laid back way of vacationing you got to stay here. We felt like part of the family. Angela the owner was on hand to recommend shops restaurants bus routes you name it and the rooms were so clean and very comfortable. i have to say i was a little wary of the two door entrances in the apartment. one in the kitchen and one in the living room but that soon disappeared. there's no ironing facilities or safety deposit boxes in the rooms but something makes me think that Angela would definately have sorted this had we asked.Many nights i was tortured by the wonderful smell of the BBQ in the BBQ areas. 15 minutes from Galeria Mall and 5 minutes from that gorgeous beach . Quiet and extremely welcoming by both staff and guests

We stayed just one night, because we extended our trip by one day but couldn't extend the booking of the resort we were staying initially.

The resort consisted of a decent number of rooms, has 3 pools and a BBQ area. The appartement was pretty large, had a tv room, a small kitchen and a separate bedroom. The staff was friendly, and the room was clean. The resort looks as if one could easily stay there comfortably for some time, and the price was reasonable.

Given the choice between Summerland and the close-by Cocobelle we would still choose the Cocobelle -- the staff made us more welcome, the pool was cleaner and the decoration of the rooms and the plants around the pool made it a little nicer. However, you probably won't regret choosing Summerland, especially if you prefer to have a separate sleeping room.

We visited Ft. Lauderdale in September and this hotel is the best choice if you want to stay near the beach. The staff is friendly and helpfull. The rooms are nice and spacious. We will come back.

We found Summerland suites through Trip Advisor and it was everything we hoped it would be. We travelled with our daughter, son-in-law and one year old grandson. Angela gave us two suites, ground level, right by the pool. Excellent for enjoying the pool and patio while the young one had afternoon naps. We were impressed with the amenities, i.e. they offer beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels for your use - no charge. Also, a baby crib and high chair seat at no charge. We could not have been more comfortable. Very clean and it was great to have the fridge, stove, and ,microwave since we were travelling with the baby. Witht the pool right there between our suites, it felt like our own villa! Certainly good value for your money. Thanks again Angela, we'll be back!

It was a decent place for the cost. The location was great- walking distance to the beach. A little north of the 'nightlife' (beach place) but you can walk it. The rooms come with a fridge- which is nice- however, I did not rent a car and the publix was too far to walk. I had to do my shopping at the 7-11 and CVS- which was not very cheap. Staff was nice and friendly- rooms were clean and spacious. I wasn't in the room for very long so again, it was perfect for what I needed. I would go back.

Summerland Suites is a gem! It is part of 3 motels (previous apartments I believe) all next to each other and owned by a lovely family. Its not fancy by any means, but truly relaxing, comfortable, quiet, with all the amenities we needed and a perfect location on top of all that. The prices were more than fair and the family that owns the properties are so friendly and helpful with making outside plans, renting a car, local sightseeing etc. that you really find you don't need one of those larger, more expensive hotels with a concierge. We met the resident cats the first night and they were a source of pleasure for the entire week. On our last night we had a beautiful storm and left early the next morning to find baby frogs hopping all over the walkways! Absolutely a sight to see!
The room came with a full kitchen, and we saved money by using it for breakfast and lunches. A cute restaurant/bar is within a 5 minute walk as is the ocean and there are many places to eat within a longer 10 minute walk. The only thing missing was a grocery store nearby. There is a small convenience store 5 minutes away, but if you want to really go shopping you would need a car or to take the trolley downtown. Still easily done and free on the weekends. This place will bring me coming back often and we planned our next trip there before we left!

Before our cruise on Oasis of the Seas we stayed for 3 nights at Summerlands - it is like to be at home away from home. Within walking distance to the beach and the beach front promenade with lots of restaurants and entertainment. The water taxi and the buses are within a walking distance. Thank you Angela for making our staying so pleasant. Angela is a very friendly and helpful hostess. Our room was very clean and it is a nice quite place. We can really recommend it.
