“Nice place and great pool!”
Reviewed 3 October 2012

Very nice beach side resort hotel (no walking across the street to the beach). The lobby is wonderful and has wifi and tables to work with your laptop. The pool area is awesome! Plenty of rows of lounge chairs around the pool. Great place to relax and talk during the evening. The kids will love the movies shown pool-side on the weekends. They can swim and watch Nemo, etc. The pool area also has a full service restaurant and an outdoor bar area where you can also get food.

Between the lobby and the beach, there's another lounge area as well. Great for watching the waves and the cruise ships.

I would definitely go back. The ony negatives are the price of food (it's a resort what do you expect), and the location. For beach activities, it's a great location! But if you want to take in the main drag in Fort Lauderdale, including the restaurants that are across the street from the beach, you've have to get a rental car or take a cab. A lot of hotels are located right on the main drag in Ft Lauderdale (see my review of the Ritz), but this is not one of them. It's off the main drag, but the restaurants (beside those in the hotel) are a ways up the road.

Room Tip: Get a pool view room. You can see the ocean, the great pool, and the cruise ships sailing out

Everything was overpriced and service was mediocre for the cost. The Hertz car rental kiosk didn't work (leaving us without the car we needed to get to a business meeting) and the Kinko's office center (which the hotel provides in lieu of an actual self-run business center) was dysfunctional and it cost me $8 to print two sheets of paper I needed for a presentation I was giving at this hotel. While these are both outside vendors, the hotel didn't have much interest that neither vendor on their property was functioning. You need a cab to get just about anywhere off the property grounds, so you are somewhat hostage. The hotel does not run a shuttle from the airport, which is only a few miles away, so you spend another $24 each way on that. Rooms are OK but nothing special and worth all this. The restaurant was pretty good and has decent reviews, but again, quite expensive. If you are looking to have some R and R in the area, you can get a much better placed hotel in South Beach (Miami) for about the same cost and much less hassle.

Stayed here for a weekend Birthday Getaway and I enjoyed every moment of it. I didn't want to leave the resort. At check-in I was upgraded to a complementary ocean view room and it was ready at noon. Went straight to the beach, then the pool, then Sea Level. Upon returning to the room I had 3 cupcakes and a birthday card signed by the staff. The rest of the weekend was absolutely wonderful. Stayed at the W Before but nothing beats Harbor Beach!

Room Tip: The oceanview was the best. The pool side was beautiful too. I just loved this resort!

Beautiful getaway! For couples or just for family vacation. You could it all in this hotel no need to drive anywhere around. Beautiful private beach and pools on site. Outstanding customer service since you arrive to the hotel everyone stops to greet you and everypne wants to make sure that you are having a pleasant time. Beautiful ocean views from the rooms.

The hotel is very nice and is right on the beach. The staff is very accomodating everyone was very friendly and helpful, this goes beyound the Front Desk, Restaurant and right down to housekeeping. The rooms were spacious and nice, had a balcony that overlooked the Inner Harbour. This is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed at in Fort Lauderdale.

Stayed here for two nights, the chairs and umbrellas on the beach were nice as was the pool area. Food was typical hotel food, but was nice to sit right by the beach and eat, although you pay for that.

Rooms were well maintained and clean. One note is that the pictures makes it look like the hotel is out on its own, this is not the case, there are other hotels built up right next to it now.
