When we travel, we prefer to pick places other than the cookie cutter big hotels. This wonderful spot is just the type of place we enjoy. Homey, spotlessly clean, functional, and larger than my first NY apartment! Two blocks from the beach, two nice pools on the grounds, and the kitchenette was very handy. I was put off by the tile floor at first, but the fifthteenth time you come home covered in sand, you"ll understand...
The owners were apparently having a family reunion going on while we were there, and it was so pleasant to come back to see them having large outdoor dinners with antipasto and vino spread out and everybody sitting around having a good, relaxed time. I just wish I spoke more Italian!
The beach was wonderful and so close by. Beware of the food and drink places along the strip! Prices were ridiculous and the help were obviously burned out. Seek out the restarants a block or two in and you will have a much better experience. Primanti Brothers, a few blocks to the north, turned out to be a great place for breakfast (just like their parlor back in Pittsburgh), Coconuts (quite a walk, or a minute or two by car) was fabulous for seafood, Quarterdeck got alot of our business, A little pizza walk-in (Beach Pizza?) right around the corner from the strip on Las Olas was my lunch/snack spot every day. To get to the chain restaraunts, you'll need a car (we always look for a PF Changs when we travel).
