I am not great at writing reviews but here we go:
it was our honeymoon and the hotel was told in advance and were able to give up an upgraded room (two full bedrooms, two balconies with view and two bathrooms )
Arrived at FLL airport we didn't rent a car ( if you want freedom to roam the streets and stuff get one) they charge for self park and valet at the hotel though)
We had a GREAT time. We went the week of 9/14/2013 (weather was so so).
Pros: friendly staff , free breakfast buffet ( with waffle station), 2 pools , 1 whirl pool, spa on site , fitness center (w/view) balcony was able to fit 2 small chairs and round table (w/view of the ocean), washer and dryer in suite ( had a 2 bdrm suite), comfy beds, large clean bathroom, fully equipt kitchen ( including pots, pans and storage containers),dishwasher, plenty of closet space, Monday-Wends evenings there were small appitizers.
Cons: balcony only big enough for two ( which was fine for us), lobby is small, parts of the bldg. are in need of a little updating, Not close to many things walking, charge for self parking, no hotel shuttle (cost $50 each way hotel will give you phone#'s), limited food options.
Helpfully hints: go in person (4th floor) to make spa appt., Publix food store 1.5 miles away (taxi $7-10 each way) go stock up you have stove top and full fridge.
over all we had a great time eating outside or overlooking the beach, we drank a cocktail on the balcony every night and relaxed walking the beach and playing like kids in the ocean!
I would definitely go back with others as a group.
