Reviewed 25 January 2012

What a pleasant surprise! When we checked the reviews they were mixed,ranging from nostars (terrible) to 4 stars (very pleased) so we weren"t sure what to expect. Upon arrival the lobby impressed us with its lounge chairs and cheery appearance. The check-in was efficient and friendly. Our room was not made up yet and rather than keep us waiting the 15 minutes it would take to get it ready we were given another room plus complimentary breakfast for two for the inconvenience. We reported that the shower drain wasn't working and when we returned to the room it was fixed.We've never experienced such immediate and efficient service in all our travels. The standard room is fairly large with microwave oven, fridge and coffee maker,
Attention to detail is reflected in the feather down comfortor on the bed, not your run of the mill bed covering.
The staff was very accomodating and pleasant.
The pooland oversized whirlpool were magnificent as was the sandy beach. All in all a wonderful stay. We are already planning to return with our childre4n and grandkids for March break.

We have never written a review but have read reviews submitted by others. We felt we needed to pass along our experience. We stayed at this hotel from December 28th to December 31, 2011. The desk staff were very helpful and knowlegable. The first room we had smelled musty and was in need of renovations. Upon us threatening to move to another hotel, they moved us to another room which was very nice and did not smell, however, you are still woken awake with the construction noise. Despite being told the construction noise would only last from 9 to 5 daily, you still hear it while you eat breakfast and lay on the beach. We were disappointed and have passed this along to our travel agent urging travellers to choose another hotel, because you can.

Room Tip: Stay in another hotel

Recently attended a conference at the Ocean Sky Hotel and Resort. The conference rooms were adequate; however the hotel rooms were terrible. A block of six rooms were booked for our company. Air condtioners did not work properly, showers leaked and had limited hot water, bathrooms were dirty. Although coffee pots were provided in each room, not one of our six rooms had a coffe pot that worked. Cell phone service was limited and most of the time there was no service available. Internet service was hit and miss. The majority of the time, internet service was not available. These are important features for business travelers.

Upon checking out, receipts were not provided for the room payments. Staff stated that the resort did not provide receipts for credit card charges.

All access to balconies were closed. The best part of staying at this location was the view of the ocean and convenience to the Ft Lauderdale International Airport.

We were grateful to have the conference here. Please inform us if there are issues in the room. I would never promise everything will be perfect, but it is vitally important to do our best to rectify any situation. We do provide a receipt for credit card charges. I'm sorry if there was a misunderstanding. Balconies are now open.

Thank you.

They are finishing up some external renovations on th balconies and paintin the exterior but that certainly did not get in our way. Right on the beach. Nothing to complain about.

We read some poor reviews and were leary but we would stay again. The lobby is beautiful as noted by most, the rooms have not been updated, however, all is clean and functional. Water pressure and temp was absolutely fine and thats what matters to me. One of these days the balcony job will be done. They work right outside your window but not at the crack of dawn. Restaurant food good and service good as well. Pool and hot tub outstanding. Nice tiki bar and nice outdoor eating. There is a concierge in the hotel lobby to answer and assist with sightseeing. On Friday, the manager had a complimentary rum punch and lemonade hour mid afternoon. You are right on the beach! Delightful!

We were looking for an economical place on the beach to stay for one night before our rental was available. Ocean Sky served its purpose for our family but I wouldn't recommend staying here for an extended vacation. Really enjoyed the tiki bar and food was good too. Front desk wasn't very helpful with answering questions or getting our families issues resolved.

I stayed at the Ocean Sky resort for one night January 5, 2012. The lobby and the pool area are beautiful. The check-in was fast and easy. They did give me a AAA discount and they waived the parking fee since the hotel is under going renovations. All of the balconies are closed due to the renovations.

The rooms are old - need to be updated. The lighting in the rooms are poor, the showers are awful, the refrigerators are hard to open.

The pool is nice but the building is high and the sun sets behind the building by mid afternoon.

There is a business center with free use of the computer and printer and I printed my boarding pass there with no problem.

There is valet parking and the attendant was very nice and helped us with our luggage.

I would never stay here again because I like a more updated room.

Please note that all balconies are now open and renovated. I appreciate your feedback on the rooms, but also know that we just placed new curtains, bed skirts, bed scarfs, bedspreads, pillows, sheets, new contactless door locks and new room carpet in all rooms. Please come and give us another opportunity.

Thank you.
