“Beachfront Hotel but rooms aren't special”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Finding a hotel on the beach is difficult so that is a big advantage to this hotel & how they try to justify the price. They will charge you $15/night for valet whether you want that service or not and charge for all phone calls.There is a nice pool and deck area, tiki bar & hot tub overlooking the beach. The also feature mini golf but charge a lot for that too.The disappointment is in the room. I've read that there has been a renovation and perhaps some rooms were but the standard, is a partial view room and doesn't look renovated. All the rooms have a side angle beach view. The patio's are next to each other with a low pane of glass separating so there isn't privacy & you overlook the roof of the hotel to see the beach and across from you is another resort that you can see right into the windows of. The mattresses can not be new. There is a shelf area that has a coffee maker & microwave but it's next to the bed so there is limited space. The bathroom is extremely tiny but seemed clean. Biggest issues are the walls are paper thin. On one side of room wall we heard a couple simply talking as if they were in our room and on the other was a family with a young child throwing non stop tantrums or being loud. We actually yelled knock it off and the parents heard us and laughed.The doors to the patio's rattle in the wind and you hear all the hallway noises and rooms doors. There is a restaurant that offers basic food choices but you would do better visiting the many area restaurants. The front desk staff was friendly and there is a concierge on site. If beachfront is the most important factor than this is a great hotel. If a quiet room that's more spacious and up to date is important than this isn't the right choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the elevator that takes you right to the pool and beach.

We recently stayed at the Ocean Sky Resort. We paid 464.00 for two nights. Also, 15.00 a day to park. We would not recommend that anyone stay there. The room was furnished very cheaply, the sheets on the bed looked like someone had already slept on them, there was hair all over the pillow case, the bathroom is very small. Even the toilet paper and and tissue box were of poor quality. We had lunch in the dining room and the food was also very poor. Beach was full of trash.

Took a mini 4 day trip to Florida, 4 nights at Ocean Sky with Alamo rental car.
Resort was nice, room was very clean, lobby was spotless, food at patio was excellent and good price point. We were there during a quiet week so not to much going on, but spent time at beach (very narrow) and did some shopping therapy. Liked the beach elevator, brings you right ot the pool deck and then just a walk across pool deck to beach. Lots of chairs as well on deck and beach.

If I had one complaint the beach for Florida was very narrow and the beach attendant did not clean up the garabage and debris seem to just rake it into a pile and wait for tide to take it out.
I have been to many beaches in the US and noemally they rake and clean up the debris and garbage. Other than that it was a great stay and the hotel staff were very friendly and accomodating. Oh ya and the trip was $493.00 taxes in which included car, airfare and hotel stay.

Directly on the beach; booked at the last minute thru Hotelcoupons.com. The price is right! $143.10 plus $15/day for parking and taxes with AARP discount. Not crowded; most of the holiday travelers are sitting at the airports waiting to fly North. Meals are extra, but that's fine because MCDonald's is across the street and there are several very nice sidewalk restaurants within 10 blocks. A major mall is within 3 miles. Great pool, hot tub and poolside bar is available. The rooms were recently renovated and clean.

Room Tip: 9th floor room is relatively quiet.

Actually booked on Priceline. Got there n $15 parking fee added. Restaurant not good and expensive. They want $60 to stay a few more hours. Actually for most of the day but we only needed an extra hour. Clean and pretty. Good location for us. No chairs on our balcony either. Bell hop sent us to a pizza joint within walking. Called it an Italian restaurant

The parking fee and half day rate is very reasonable for a beachfront location. We just purchased balcony chairs for the entire hotel.

We hope to see you again.

My family and I stayed there dec 28-jan 1st to celebrate NYE in Fort Lauderdale. On paper the hotel looked great, big pool and on the beach. However it is super crowded. We waited 20 min to check in, hard to find spots on lounge chairs at the pool or in the hot tub/ jacuzzi! Also everything is extra- breakfast, parking, rollaway bed in the bedroom... And for a $300 room, you get your basic double double bed room, holiday Inn style! The mattresses were horrible, really hard to sleep on, and the walls aren't soundproof so we were awaken by the next door guests both at midnight and 7 am... Never again...

We spent 1 night before our cruise tour at this hotel. It was a nice place which we would book again for 3-4 days. For a longer period I would maybe look for a different place, because the hotel offered only a few amenities and around the hotel was not much to see. Get your breakfast outside the hotel!
In general: good place for a reasonable price.
