Wish I Could've Stayed Forever

Posted Dec 13, 2016
I'm a Floridian who moved up to NYC. I stayed here while visiting my family for a week. I will stay here every time I visit my family from now on. I cannot say enough about this place. It felt like home (but better). I wanted to stay forever. There is so much love put into this hotel. You know how sometimes hotels look better in the pictures? That's not Blue Seas. It exceeded every expectation I had. My husband and I stayed at the Boca Resort after our wedding earlier this year, and I felt like this hotel was so much better than the Boca Resort. YES, I know! Everything felt special here. When my mom walked into the room she said, "If I was ever going to run away, this is where I would come." I couldn't agree more. I'll never stay anywhere else whenever I'm in town. The bed was sooo comfortable, too.

Amazing Hotel by the beach

This hotel was amazing - it is close to shops and super close to the beach. The hotel provides beach towel, chairs and umbrella. I had a wonderful experience and wished I could stay longer.

Pros: Cute, comfortable beds and pillows. Roomy with full kitchen. Very close to beach, grocery, restaurants. Plenty of parking. Access to laundry.
Cons: The constant smoking around the pool by guests made it impossible for a nonsmoker to sit by the pool. Maybe a designated smoking area or a fan.
Location: Close to everything.
The staff greeted us warmly, asked about any needs we had throughout the stay.

Pros: The room was comfortable and the little kitchen was stocked well enough to make some breakfast and snacks. The free WiFi worked well ( I got some work
Location: Within easy walking distance is a beautiful uncrowded beach, shops, a variety of restaurants and nightlife. Enough crowd to just sit and people watch.
I really enjoyed my stay and Lauderdale by the Sea. The hotel is very comfortable and pleasant to be at. The owners are right there and they care about your experience. You really don’t need to waste money renting a car, take uber to and from and everything you need is right there if you are going for a few days or a week.

Beautiful and Relaxing

by from New York
Posted Nov 2, 2015
Pros: Location is perfect, very clean, décor, owners and staff were all excellent.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
Location: There is construction nearby but it did not effect our ability to relax and enjoy ourselves. Restaurants, shops, pier, beach is in walking distance
I was there the week of Oct. 26. My friend and I were there for vacation and to celebrate his birthday and retirement of the previous week. You really can feel the personal attention to EVERY detail of the Blue Seas by the owners Marc and Cristie who we met. Gary, one of the property keepers was there too and gave us a very warm welcome on our arrival. It's one of the most cozy and beautiful places that we ever stayed at. We definitely did not need a car. Everything we needed was in walking distance within 3 - 5 minutes like a another reviewer mentioned. Publix is a grocery store about a 5 minute walk away. The beach is right across the street, 2 minutes away to one of the entrances. The walk into town is only a couple of minutes and Country Ham N' Eggs for breakfast was our favorite. There are so many good choices for restaraunts. Mulligan's was very good too, great service there (Pepper and Leslie were awesome!!). We had the full apartment..it was immaculate always. The cleaning staff for daily housekeeping did a wonderful job during our stay. The pool is very clean. There is an outdoor shower on the premises and a laundry too. Also, other guests there were very friendly too. On our departure, we had a late afternoon flight, Marc was so sweet and allowed us some extra time before leaving for checkout even before our getting a taxi. Thanks so much again Marc, Cristie and Gary. We had a wonderful time.

Wonderful, Mexican hacienda style hotel

5 out of 5
by from Bahamas
Posted Oct 26, 2015
Pros: Ambiance, hotel staff and owners, cleanness, location
Cons: AC in our room was located in the kitchen. In order to cool entire room down it had to run on maximum speed all the time. This created a lot of noise.
Location: Close to beach, restaurants and shops
This was my first time in Blue Seas Courtyard but definitely not the last one. This place is absolutely wonderful. It is a gemstone among variety of other hotels in the area We love this little hotel. It is very clean and perfectly located - walking distance to restaurants, shop (Publix) and the beach etc. The owners and the manager are very nice, friendly and helpful people. Rooms are very clean with separate bathroom and small kitchen equipped with everything you might need. My husband and I enjoy very much our stay and we’ll be back soon!

Thank you for your excellent rating and let me address your comment about air conditioners, which is very important in Florida! We, as well as most neighboring hotels, have individual wall units which actually do a great job of cooling but are not silent like central air systems. When on 'economy mode" they turn off and on to maintain a specific temperature. That is what guests might notice. We try to keep them on 'constant cool" mode to avoid the on/off issue. Thanks again and we look forward to your next visit!
