Cozy apartment near the beach. Friendly staff. Daily cleaning. Quiet. Some of apartmants has a kitchen, some just a fridge and coffeemaker. We recommend, will stay again possible. Just 2 minutes walk to the beach.

This hotel was very convenient to the beach. There was free parking, but you risked being blocked in by some of the construction traffic (big buildings going up diagonally across street, and a rehab of the next building). The rooms are painted white, so look light and airy, but lighting was insufficient once it got dark. Only 2 bed lights...

We spent two nights here and loved the friendly and personal staff, the fresh, unique décor, and the amazingly close location to the beach and the action! Very budget-friendly and a great value! Two pools; giant lounge bean-bags surround one. Clean and spacious in the regular king. Bathroom in our executive king may be a snugger fit for a larger...

My friends and I stayed here to celebrate my 30th birthday. La Fortuna is in an ideal location, under a minute walk to the beach, within walking distance to bars and restaurants along AIA, and under a $10 uber to Las Olas.
