Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach - a Doubletree by Hilton Hotel
Ranked #54 of 128 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 8 June 2014

beautiful surroundings and the best beach walk in the area BUT when we arrived the phone in the room was dead, and towels and linens were as hard as hen's teeth to get each and every day!!! The eats were great though at the restaurant in the lobby and the All About Food store! No hot tub which was a bummer BUT the pool was pristine clean and clear!

Room Tip: the Marina side of the hotel had gorgeous views of the Yachts in the marina, nice and quiet too!

I stayed at this hotel 1 night for a business trip. I selected this hotel because it was right across the street from a public beach even though it was about 3 miles from my meeting. I valet parked my car and the valet staffing was friendly and helpful with directions. The front desk staff appreciated my business and upgraded me to an ocean view room. After my business meeting, I had some time to walk on the path that ran alongside the beach. I used the footbridge from the 2nd floor of the hotel to cross the street to the beach. This is an excellent convenience. During my walk, I noticed that there were plenty of busy restaurants and stores in close proximity to this hotel. I ate the buffet for breakfast in the morning. There were plenty of high quality items to choose from.

I had such a great time that I plan to return with my husband for an anniversary trip.

This does not deserve to be a Hilton property. The service was extremely poor. From the time the front desk could not find my reservation to their lack of room service, even though they have me use in the room and a restaurant on premise.
Rooms are old, small, and very plain.

The hotel is well-situated along the Ft. Lauderdale beachfront, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The facility is a little outdated -- tight fit at breakfast in the bar, sparsely furnished rooms -- but for those with families wanting to hit the beach it's in the right place. A little too many kids for us, but we probably went at the wrong time. I've been to better beachfront hotels, but I've also been to a lot worse.

I would consider another hotel before choosing this one, some of the staff were rude, they could have cared less that the elevators were not working. The location is ideal for the beach and marina, and close to the airport. Great location if you love to watch boats, and marina life.

We were traveling around Florida and the Keys, and had a flight out of Fort Lauderdale the following day so only stayed one night. We wished we found this hotel sooner as its a really nice place. We chose this hotel for its beach location and 10 minutes from the airport. It’s right on the beachfront, opposite the most amazing beach, next to the Yacht Club and intercoastal Marina, right on Seabreeze Boulevard, near the restaurants, bars and shops. Lovely hotel, perfectly placed for the beach, it has a bridge over the road from the hotel to the beach and a nice rooftop pool area with bar and good pool scene. This hotel is perfect if you’re looking for a relaxing beach holiday. Our room was large and spacious, 2 double beds, big flat screen TV, free wifi in the room, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was tiny and dated, but perfectly adequate. On the hotel premises there is a handy little deli/coffee shop, selling wines/beers/snacks. As we were only there for a day and night we didn’t get time to look around the hotel properly. We will be back in Fort Lauderdale later in the year, and will most definitely stay at this hotel again, it’s clean, comfortable, modern and on the beach, and for the price we paid it’s perfect. Friendly check-in staff, we loved the free cookies given at check-in, a nice touch! Highly recommend this hotel.

The only downside was we arrived earlier than expected from Miami and had to wait until 3pm for our room, but were able to store our luggage and go for a long lunch.

Mixed reviews plus lower price got me into this hotel, for one night, on business. I had half a day to kill between meetings and thought the ocean side hotel would be welcomed. Since ut was a Doubletree hotel, i went for it.

Result: big deception. I was so sorry i went there. Nothing terribly bad, but nothing special either. The problem is that you will show up there with expectations thst won't be met. Not worth the Doubletree name. If your expectations are minimal, then the value is ok for the price paid. Did not get the room i booked overall unsatisfactory.
