Pros: Tropical landscape and mango tree
Cons: Small bathroom
Location: Within walking distance to everything
There is a private gate to enter the property but once you come in, you enter a tropical gem that is very small and private. It truly is a hidden oasis that is very calming. There is a nice pool and you are a block off the beach. Within walking distance to beachplace and any restaurant you will eat at. The bathroom is a bit small but that is the only negative. If you want peace and quiet that is close to everything, this place is for you.

Pros: the landscaping made me feel like I was in a little Garden of Eden!
Location: PERFECT LOCATION! You only have to walk to the end of the block to be at the beach!
Beautiful little hotel I would recommend to anyone! only downside is it can be a little noisy because of close proximity to the road- but I didn't mind because it meant that I was that much closer to the water. We walked to the beach every day, enjoyed the pool and all the beautiful landscaping!

Pros: Friendly staff and convenient location
Cons: Not sure I have anything to mention... Keep up the good work!
Location: Any closer to the beach would drag sand into our room!
My wife and I recently stayed at la casa del mar prior to our cruise and just loved it. It was excellent alternative to a hotel. Comfortable, clean, central to everything, friendly & helpful staff, grounds well kept, 2 minute walk to the beach. Highly recommend this place

Perfect Location, Wonderful Staff
Posted Jan 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
If you are a go,do,see,explore all kind of person then this is the hotel for you. If you are a sleep in on luxurious bedding, lounge in your plush hotel accommodations kind of person this is definitely not your place. The hotel could not get any better in location, one block from the beach and Starbucks, steps away from oceanfront restaurants and bars, walkable to Las Olas and Sunrise, and steps away from the awesome water taxi. The staff is incredible, very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. Beautiful pools, free beach chairs as well as beach towels. But our room was nothing to be excited about. It was clean but everything, especially the tile in the bathroom needed updating. It suits your basic needs, and if you're like us and dont spend much time in your room then its fine. But if you like a large luxurious hotel room this was not it. The overall experience, staff, and location help boost it's ratings.

this is about 1 block off the "adult" end of Ft. Lauderdale Beach. it took us a little while to figure out where to eat, but other than that, this was a convenient location. it's a scant two blocks to the Water Taxi (which seemed to be overwhelmed on Sunday). This place is definitely quaint, 40 to 50 years old, but has been renovated and kept clean. not a Hyatt or Weston, but a good value.

would not stay there again,
Posted Jan 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
you cannot get to the street it is on without going past it and making u turns to even find the street name > there is no one avail after 6pm and we notified them we would be late and we ended up waking someone up to find they had left key in the mail box. the room was smaool and the bathroom was so small that when we first looked in we didnt even see a shower it was behind the door and it was bad. the place needs a whole update and overhaul the rooftom patio is on the next door hotel not this one. definately would rate this 1star at the most it was that bad.
great hotel & great staff!

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa del Mar. Our room was clean and comfortable, with a refrigerator microwave and toaster oven. The hotel is a beautiful old building and nicely landscaped. The pool was nice with lots of comfy lounge chairs around. The hotel is set back from the beach about a block and just a short walk from all the bars and restaurants. You need a key to enter the property so it is secure. The front desk staff was very helpful in giving us directions and making recommendations for meals and entertainment. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I intend to go back next time I am in Fort Lauderdale!
Quiet and Charming

Great little gem in an awesome location. The desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. Although the property is older, my room was clean & comfortable with a newer mattress. Shower (no tub) was excellent w/ great water pressure. The pool is on the small side, but I was the only one on the deck, so it didn't matter. Newer padded lounge chairs which can be moved about to catch the sun. Otherwise, the courtyard is heavily landscaped & quiet. 2 blocks to the beach and Casablanca restaurant. Across the street from the Westin w/ multiple bar & restaurant options. What's not to like?
Relaxing place with cheap-feel rooms
Posted Jan 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
My wife and I stayed at La Casa Del Mar when having to go to south Florida to wrestle government bureaucrats. It rained constantly when we were there, so we didn't get to use the pool or sit in the nicely (overly?) vegetated garden to read as we had hoped. It seemed like a great oasis to relax with a good book in the sun, though. We were a little surprised at the staff leaving seat cushions out in the rain, which made it impossible to sit by the pool even after the rain stopped. The limited front desk hours didn't bother us much, and the cleaning staff was friendly and very service-oriented (but didn't speak a word of English). The room was okay, it was clean but it had a cheap feel to it and one could tell the furniture etc were either old or very cheap or both. Perhaps this was expected considering the low price for the area, but it didn't add value to our experience. The location is fantastic, only a very brief walk from the beach and luxury hotels and with free parking and wifi.
Convenient Comfort Stay

Extremely satisfied with the quality of service. The Hotel is located right near the beach which was exactly what we were looking for. We Loved the hotel and how cozy it was. The room's decor was very inviting and we loved it. We will most definitly come back! <3
