Southern Seas is right on the beach within walking distance (about 3 blocks) to the main area with restaurants, shops, etc. Far enough away that we could here the music from the beach bar at night but it wasn't loud enough to be bothersome. We stayed in the main building around the pool (Southern Seas). We had the only room...

It has a small pool overlooking the ocean, the beach was very clean and beautiful. Our unit was dated but clean, there are others that...

Our room was lovely and clean but a bit dated...but for the location and price for the holidays we couldn't have been happier. If you want to be right on the beach it's a great place to choose and we would definitely go back.

Lauderdale by the Sea is a very small town surrounded by Fort Lauderdale. To date, it has done a pretty good job of resisting big money, tall buildings. Southern Seas is three small two story buildings of ten or so units each. The property is well maintained. Everything is "old Florida". The property is right on the beach, which is...

Third or fourth stay. Right on the beach one bedroom suite. All new windows, it was a constant 25 mph wind and didn't hear a thing. Theresa and Yolanda were fantastic. Didn't rent a car most places walking distance or we Ubered.. Can't wait to stay again.

This is a quaint resort located right on the beach, with the Anglin's Pier a short walk-on-the-beach away. The property is well kept, and the staff, especially Yolanda at the front desk, were very friendly and accommodating. Our room looked recently remodeled and had a small full size kitchen, great bath (with glassed walk-in shower), and large windows that overlooked...

We stayed at the Southern Seas for 3 nights. It was a quaint little efficiency that was well taken care of in beautiful Lauderdale by the Sea. We came in very late and they had left the lights on inside our room for us. It was a very nice detail. We will stay again at the Southern Seas!
