“Good Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2008

This was a short getaway to visit friends on the other coast of Florida; so, we were only looking for lodging and not worried too much about amenities. Condo was booked through RCI and was a timeshare trade. We stayed in a Studio, which is OK for 2 people - Murphy bed was not too bad for comfort. Full kitchen with Dishwasher, Microwave and Fridge.
Check in was quick and front desk was very friendly and helpful.

This resort is older (as in still using keys and the only way to access internet was in lobby - you may have to wait in line) and also in need of some routine maintainence.

if you are first time travelors, this place would be great. Has a pool, hot tub and tiki bar with nightly entertainment. Resort is located right on the beach with water activities available. Cabanas available for a fee ($19). No washer/dryer in studio condo; W/Ds available for a fee in another building. Table tennis table has seen better days (pitted). Saw no one playing due to location of table (strong breeze off ocean)

If you are seasoned travelers and expecting high end resort amentites, this is NOT the place for you.

LOCATION is ideal. Close to 95, AIA and Rt 1. Minutes from Boca Raton or Ft Lauderdale. Key Largo is 2 hours away. Close to casinos or any restaurant/entertainment you may be looking for. I will be posting photos as soon as I download them.

A recent week's stay was less than desirable. First, the grounds were lovely, staff very nice. However, with walking issues, the fact that the elevator in our building was out for 5 days left me a virtual prisoner after the kind security person got a wheelchair and took me back. The Tiki Bar and Restaurant have no facility for room delivery, so we had to order out from another restaurant.

We had a studio apartment facing the beach, and the furnishings and decor were grim. We had to sleep in a sofa bed which was not fit for any comfort. We couldn't use the 'Murphy' bed because there was a heavy couch in front of it. Becasue of mobility issues, it was impossible to get to the laundry exchange area to get clean linens and towels.

We did not know about nesting Sea Turtles and had to keep the balcony light off and the sheers closed, so not to confuse the turtles. That's fine, just thought I would mention it.

In the middle, we were in a major accident and again, the front desk and security were most helpful in transporting us via wheelchair,

We used the Pompano Beach Limo Service and it was wonderful, cost $65.00 for two one way to the FLL airport. Would use them again. ([-])

There are not many places on the beach that present a better value. The Light House Cove (LHC) has a lot of great things going for it. The first and most important and impressive thing was the property - it was very nice. The next great thing was the pool. With 4 small kids, I appreciate a clean pool. They keep the pool WARM and CLEAN. The room was OK, as the pullout couch was very uncomfortable and unsleepable for an adult(s). Good thing that the Murphy bed was pretty comfortable. Overall, the room was clean and that is the most important thing for me. A few weird things that need improving are the following - The staff are a bit condescending with a little attitude in their tone. You have to go to the front desk to exchange dirty for clean pool towels and to get toilet paper, etc. They made you feel like you should be happy with what you got and that you should not ask for a little more than you deserve (what they think you deserve).
The ground floor entrances and hallways should be kept cleaner. The guest room doors should be updated with card keys, as the easily copyable metal key just doesn't sit right with the guest. Todays traveler expects card keys and better quality locks on the doors.
Overall - for the money, the LHC cannot be beat.

We swapped our timeshare and booked our stay through RCI. Overall, it was an average hotel. We had a studio room with a murphy bed and it was enough room for the two of us but 3 would have been a crowd. The pool and the beach area are phenomenal and without a doubt the best amenities the hotel has to offer. The two restaurants on the grounds are okay. Southern Comfort is the inside restaurant and was average. We were the only two customers in the place. The food was good and it was very convenient but didn't leave that big of an impression as we only ate there once. The outside bar/restuarant seems to be the hang out for middle-older age singles. It seemed as if they had karyoke every night. If it wasn't the locals butchering the songs of their childhood, they had other decent performers there as well. We were on the third floor directly above where the stage area was and it did get loud at times. Could be a problem for people traveling with kids. The area of Pompano Beach itself seems a bit sketchy. Not your typical vacation destination. Overall it was a nice vacation but next time I think we'll go for a different area.

We've been there from dec 15 to dec 22 2007.

The beach and the pool are REALLY great! The oceanview is awesome too!

The rooms are really old and not really clean but we could have lived with it... The only problem was that they seem to have serious problems with cockroaches in the building where we were (room 202). We stayed in many different resorts in south Florida and it was the first time we found so many cockroaches! The last one I found was in the toaster so I brought it to the lobby (alive) and they FINALLY accepted to move us in another building (after many complaints about cockroaches).

It's really sad because it's one of the most beautiful places we've been to in Florida but it's infested with cockroaches and they don't seem to put effort and $$$ to maintain this resort correctly.

We booked through the Interval system, I am managing a time sharing property in Venice Italy.

They gave us a studio on the 3rd floor in the darkest corner of the property overlooking the building in front of us and, only by leaning on the terrace with a side view of the ocean, good hamburger smell came up from the pool bar, we asked the staff the possibility to change unit (they had vacancies) but they refused as they told it's an Interval matter. Interval couldn't do anything because it was managed by Interval in Italy.
So we didn't get any cooperation either from the hotel staff, either from Interval USA.
If I would have done the same on my property in Italy, interval would have rang the day after for the complain of the client.

The unit was clean and all the equipments in the units fine but we didn't have a relaxing and happy time there also because we had to share the wall bed with our kid because the sofa bed was very unconfortable.

The beach it's very nice and it's really a shame that the service doesn't fulfil your expectations.

We'll never come back again or suggest this place to friends and relatives.

Stayed December 2007
