“A Great Experience!”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

Just had a wonderful stay at a little known, but absolutely lovely and charming hotel at the south end of Hollywood Beach. It was perfect, very relaxing, casual friendly atmosphere with many returning guests. I was amazed that about half the other guests were there for their third of fourth time. After getting to know our hosts, Terry and Diane, I can see why. They gave you all the attention you desired. If you needed something they would try to provide it, if you wanted to be left alone they accomodated. We had friends coming over to meet us and they suggested that we use their grill and enjoy the ambiance of their front lawn overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The beach is quite frankly one of the nicest I've ever been to and I've traveled extensively. Many restaurants and bars located on the boardwalk, but with a distinct family feel. The rooms were very clean, neat and organized to maximize your pleasure. Having a full kitchen is a great luxury and a money saving extra as we had many of our meals in our room where we enjoyed the fresh seafood available close bye. All in all I would recommend Marine Villas over the bigger chain hotels for all the local charm. We feel like we have made new friends and hope to visit them again in the not to distant future.

Room Tip: They have studios and one bedrooms, both have full kitchens, but if you need the bigger you should r...

stayed here at the first week of october 2011 after a roundtrip. It was nice, clean and I felt very save on my own. The studio had more than enough space. Just a few steps from the beach. It was pleasant to have a parkingspace after coming home late at night. I hope to be back some time. Diane and her son are very friendly hosts

Stayed solo November 14-16 in a ground floor one-bedroom that would be very nice for two. This is less a hotel than an apartment facility that looks like a small hotel. No WiFi, but smart phones work fine. No housekeeping services unless you ask for them (a small extra fee). A list of do's and dont's which remind me of a house swap, all of which boil down to "please leave the place as clean as possible for the next occupant." I'm OK with this, because there is a lot of room here, it is very affordable, and the location is great - 30 seconds from the southern end of the Hollywood Broadwalk and its uncrowded sand beach. The unit was comfortable, very clean, with a full kitchen well stocked with pots/pans, plates/glasses, utensils, clean-up items (unit 1 kitchen reverses hot and cold tap, but hot water is fine once you figure that out). Shower bath is cozy but again very clean, with ample towels. Plenty of closet and storage space, with lots of full size plastic hangers. A free parking space is good. Upper floor units (there are four one-bedroom corner units and some non-corner shotgun-style studios here) are accessible only by stairs, and you need to climb a total of six steps to get to the downstairs unit front doors. Not a problem for me, but good to know. Beds are two-twins convertible to king, and very comfortable, with extra pillows on hand. Did not use the pull-out living room couch but it seemed fine. Fans in the living room and bedroom, and air conditioning works fine. Flat-screen cable TV in the living/dining room gets a zillion channels in English and Spanish with a good picture. The place is on one-way South Surf Road, and you don't hear AIA traffic noise. Not much noise at all, really. All units have a partial view of the Atlantic Ocean, lots of morning light, and Marine Villas provides beach towels and a slection of molded plastic and folding beach chairs and beach umbrellas. There is a coin-operated washer/drier (which I did not need to use this trip, but may use next time), a clothes line for beach items, a small lawn for non-beach sitting and reading. Diane is very down-home friendly; son Michael is a pleasure; husband Terry seems to be the quiet one. This is just the second place I've stayed in ten years that called me to confirm my arrival and arrival time - a very nice service touch. But since the office is not always open, it makes sense they would want to be there when I arrived. With WiFi and a simpler payment system (they now ask for and I willingly provided a signed, scanned form for credit card authorization and deposit in advance), this place gets a full five out of five. I like the place, and have already arranged for a five-night stay here the week before Christmas.

Room Tip: Corner rooms 1, 4, 5, and 8 are one-bedroom apartments

I just returned from Hollywood Beach, Florida. Marine Villas are a fabulous value and the room rated an A plus. Diane was a superb hostess and greeted me on my arrival and departure. The property is just steps away from the boardwalk and fabulous beach. I will be back in 6 months for another wonderful stay....

Well once again it was awesome, I don't believe there is another place on Hollywood beach that you could stay and have any better vacation!! Terry , Diane and Michael are truely the greatest hosts you could have & they are the owner/managers. They are so very helpful with any info you need about the area and accomadating to your every need. The rooms are so clean and well kept, and very comfortable. The beach is very close and you have a view out the front door. The broadwalk is right there and a really great place to walk, eat, shop. When you go try eating at Sugar Reef, great food and a very short walk to it from your room. MARINE VILLAS IS A MUST IF YOU ARE GOIN TO HOLLYWOOD BEACH!! AND A GREAT VALUE!!!

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean and you have a choice of a 1 bedroom or a studio and both are comfortable...

At the very end of our vacation my wife and I decided to look for accommodations near the beach and boardwalk in Hollywood, Florida. We walked around a bit when we first arrived in Hollywood early Friday morning on the 11th of November 2011 and stopped at Atlantic Sands Beach Suites (another family owned fine place to stay) but they were full. Dori, at Atlantic Sands, was very helpful and phoned several places and and found that the Marine Villas Had a vacancy. That's when we first spoke with Diane the owner of Marine Villas. Diane got us settled into a very nice, clean, perfectly situated studio room. We could'nt have asked for "better" and at such short notice too. Diane is wonderful and knows so much about Hollywood. She made us feel at home. You can walk a few yards and you are right at the beach. We would highly recommend the Marine Villas to everyone.
