“Home away from home”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

I have to start off by thanking Marc and Christie for an amazing Fourth of July birthday stay!!!! Everything was just perfect from beginning to end... We arrived on Wednesday July 3, upon arriving I was over taken on how well kept and clean everything is, loved the Mexican decor thru out the property.... I am a very very picky person and believe me when I say this place from top to bottom is spotless...... It only has 12 guest cottages and that's exactly what I loved about it, it felt like we were the only ones there the whole time.... They have rules as they reside there onsite as well as keeping the noise level down as to respect other guest and that's exactly what every hotel should have... Location was perfect... Beach was just across the street and you could walk to restaurants and shops..... I would not stay anywhere else in lauderdale by the sea!!!!! We departed on Saturday and honestly I did not want to leave..... I felt the whole time I was there like if I was staying with family!!!! Thanks again Christie and keep up the great job you do!!!!!!! Love love the place. Looking forward to returning!!!!!

Room Tip: Stay in units 10, 11 or 12 which are the only units on second floor. We stayed in unit 10...

Thank you for your enthusiastic review! In addition to our awesome beachside location - the major town events such as July 4th fireworks are directly in front of our hacienda! Cristie

My husband & I stayed @ Blue Seas Courtyard in April 2013. The owners and staff are extremely friendly. It was one of the best motels we've ever stayed at, it blows away the large chains. It was a great escape from all the hustle & bustle of our high-tech world. The decor was amazing & very clean (ie: room & pool area). It's a quaint, charming atmosphere that made me feel relaxed & trustworthy. Everything is within walking distance, beach, restaurants, night life. My husband & I have told all of our friends & family and we definitely plan on returning. Blue Seas Courtyard is a gem and we plan on making it an annual vacation. We highly recommend this motel. All of our memories are sweet and they'll last forever! Thanks Christie & Mark!

Room Tip: They're always updating/improving the rooms so ask for one that's been recently renovated...

We wanted a quiet place to stay near the beach and did not want to stay in some high rise chain hotel. Blue Seas was perfect! It's right across the street from the beach and within walking distance of a whole block of restaurants in Lauderdale by the Sea. The beach was never crowded, even on the weekend. We had a one bedroom, with two bathrooms and a kitchen. The couches in the living room turn in to beds. The room was absolutely spotless, both bathrooms look like they were recently remodeled. If was very comfortable for four people. The owners provide beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, etc. It was awesome. I would highly recommend if you are wanting to get away and relax. We will visit again!

Room Tip: There are only 12 rooms. All open out into a courtyard with a pool. I could not hear the neighbors o...

When we decided to return to LBTS we never thought of booking another place than Blue seas courtyard! We were so impressed two years ago that this was the obvious choice again. The only concern we had was to get a room as we know that almost everybody that stays there book it again, so we booked it way ahead! We were not disappointed this time either, we had a perfect stay and the management of the property is all you ever hoped for! Across the street is the beach and walking distance to the town center where the street is closed down, for traffic, on Fridays and Saturdays and live music and restaurants reclaims the street! Bathrooms have been refitted and the kitchens are next in line, the owners really puts their love into this place. Hey, all you families, this is the place for you! We really missed you, our little girl would love to have someone to play with in the pool. This is really a place to book as a family with children! We will return to this place again.

After reviewing many comments about the hotels in Lauderdale by the Sea, we opted to stay at this charming little place even though it wasn't right on the beach and we're ever so delighted that we did! To get to the beach, all we had to do was cross the street, not a big deal!! We stayed for three nights in a room right by the pool before going on a 10 day cruise then, upon our return, we stayed another eight nights in an upstairs room - loved both experiences! The hotel is only 12 units, the owners, Marc and Cristie live on sight, so there is always someone around in case you need something - they even had a teapot, which thrilled me to bits! The rooms were clean, comfortable and the inner courtyard was as cute as can be - very charming indeed. We were within walking distance of everything we needed and were able to keep groceries on hand in our fully equipped kitchen. Restaurants and bars are plenty and only a short little jaunt up the road - it's a peaceful little place and I would not hesitate to recommend a stay at this fabulous little hotel. If, however, you're looking for an upscale hotel with a huge foyer, concierge service, etc, then you'd be at the wrong place - and you might just be delightfully surprised at how charming and laid back this little place actually is! We'll definitely be back the next time we venture to the Fort Lauderdale area. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Room Tip: We loved both our rooms, but may have preferred unit #12 a wee bit more!

We LOVE the Blue Seas Courtyard. It is the perfect place to stay in Ft. Lauderdale. It is suited for an extended stay with a kitchenette equipped with microwave, stove, coffee maker, fridge and all the dishes and utensils, but we only stay for a week at a time. Just across the street from the beach access point; the complementary beach chairs and umbrellas are a great extra. The sweet couple that owns the place are a delight and they really pay attention to every detail because the Blue Seas Courtyard is their home. We've stayed there 3 times over the years and we will always return when we are in Ft. Lauderdale. Can't wait to book out next stay!

A husband and wife own the Blue Seas Courtyard and give it the loving care they would give their own home and treat their guests like family.

Clean, check, excellent.
Service, check, excellent
Location, just across the street from the ocean.

I would recommend Blue Seas Courtyard.
