Reviewed 28 July 2016

Located perfectly close to the beach and to the "strip". Huge rooms fully equipped but rather thin walls (can be noisy from time to time), but the closeness to the beach and to the "town centre" makes up for it. Nice pool area and complementary wi-fi.

We arrived at blue strawberry by the sea on July 2, and manager Alba told us there's limited parking space for this holiday weekend. At first, we were not happy about the idea that we can even park at where we are staying. We ended up parked one night at some private parking lot for$10. And send night Alba was...

This is a very nice little hotel. The location is ideal. Very close to the beach and 5 minute walk to lots of great restaurants, shops, bars, etc. The staff at the Strawberry are very friendly and it is a well run establishment. Not a swanky 4/5 star, but clean, very roomy, nice kitchen and sitting area. Can't beat this...

We enjoyed this place. Staff very friendly and helpful. Older property but clean and maintained. Walking distance to beach, restaurants, and stores, but away from the bustle of the high rises. Kids, parents, and grandparents all agree, Blue Strawberry by the Sea is a wonderful place to stay in FLL.

While this hotel is close to the beach and other amenities, if you come on a busy night / weekend, good luck with parking. The hotel has 35 rooms, but only 22 parking spaces. Upon check-in, hotel staff provide you with a written parking pass to display in your front windshield. If you plan on leaving the hotel in your...

Hostess Alba is such a wonderful person, helpful and kind. The Blue Strwberry is a great place to stay and for a good price. A refreshing alternative to the generic touristy Florida hotels of the area. Very quiet for being so close to the beach, nightlife,etc. I wish we had more time to stay here.
