Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach - a Doubletree by Hilton Hotel
Ranked #55 of 128 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

The hotel was very clean, it was just in need of some updating. The elevator was slow and a little sketchy. The staff were courteous. I liked the little store on property for snacks/drinks. The pool was nice. It had a great crosswalk to the beach. The beach was beautiful. It was a short walk to many great restaurants and bars. Bathroom was small, a lot of wasted space in the closet Area. Overall good stay.

This was a terrible hotel. Old, unfriendly. I thought it was a double tree quality. The room was terrible, felt worst than motel 6! It was too late to cancel so we stayed but regret ever staying there.

Room was very clean, very minimal furnishings. Interesting that the closet was much bigger than the bathroom. Elevator was a little scary - doors needed encouragement to open and it bounced a lot! Terrific views. Great for families.

Just stayed at the Bahia Mar for 2 weeks. This is my second year there. Taxi from airport 22.00 dollars plus your tip. I can' say enough for the ocean view I had from my room on the 16th floor. 1602 It is amazing. All rooms in the tower 01-02-03-04 have complete ocean view. The King size bed was really comfortable. The AC was great. The room was really quiet. There's an ice machine on the floor. There's free USA newspaper in the lobby. There's a gift shop in the lobby. Suntan lotion a bit more expensive there than at the CVS pharmacy at Beach Place. The staff at the front desk Suzanne and Courtney were really helpful. Ellen the concierge is wonderful. Janet at the pool bar very friendly. The food is great both at the Breeze's Bar and at the pool. Of course it's a very busy hotel so sometimes the elevators are a bit slow to come but hey you are on vacation. Relax. I love the walkway to the beach and the restaurant just before you cross at street level where you can charge food to your room. You can rent a chair for 12 dollars and an umbrella for 20 dollars and Kevon is really nice and helpful. Yes it is very expensive. It's a company separate from the hotel that offer this service. They offer to charge it to your room. All in all I can't wait to go back next year. Very safe for a female alone.

We had a great stay and the rooms and service was great. The only thing I would suggest is that in the rooms there should be a comfortable chair to lounge in and not all straight chairs. Other than that it was great and we will be returning.

Me my daughter and her freind stayed here for 5 nites. We got an upgraded room on a higher floor with a great view. The front desk was fantastic. Very friendly and informative.
The pool was very small but was clean and they girls had fun going for nite swims.
The restaurants, bar, and little store prices were comparable to the places which were all expensive.
It was walking distance to little shops and restaurants.
The beach was great water was nice and blue and close. The ocean floor was a lot smother than a resort I stayed at in mexico in may. No rocks to step on!!
No complaints with this hotel. If I ever go back to this area I know where to stay

The Bahia Mar is conveniently located to the beach, shopping and restaurants. I enjoyed that part. The Front Desk staff was awesome; very friendly and helpful. The food was good as well. However, I was told that the entire hotel had been renovated in 2011; not true. The Marina building needs a complete overhaul - chipped paint, very dingy bathrooms, old air-conditioning system and the electrical outlets were unstable; there was only one outlet that I could use to charge my phone.
