We enjoyed every minute of our stay! It was a very relaxing and clean hacienda. We would definitely recommend Blue Seas Courtyard.

This was our sixth year staying at this location. The staff is always friendly and maintain the property well. there is always a little extra added each year to make it interesting to catch up on. The location is convenient and within easy walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Compared to other properties in the area this has to be the most colorful.

Thank you John. It is great when our frequently returning guests take the time to send in a review. As owners, we are fortunate to live on the property and I think that makes a very big difference. We have always wanted to live in a beautiful, colorful paradise and share that dream with our guests! Best wishes, Cristie (owner)

Our hacienda is in the heart of a lovely little resort village called Lauderdale by the Sea. We are just across from the ocean and a one block walk to downtown restaurants and activities. So perfect most guests don't even use their cars!

So many guests over the decades have told us that owning a B&B or inn would be their dream job. I agree! But longevity requires two main ingredients. Staff that are naturally people-oriented and someone who can fix virtually anything! Best wishes, Cristie (Owner since 1972)

Here for business, felt like I was on vacation

I loved this place. Many of the motels and hotels nearby are nice, but kind of grey/drab. This place had lots of flavor while still being well cared for.

Thank you Michael. We definitely try to stand out with a rich beautiful color palette inside and out. We also add more happy color with year round flower gardens and lush landscaping! Why do business in a drab big box hotel on the highway when you can work in an inspirational beach side paradise! Best wishes, Cristie

Loved the Location and Ambiance!

The location and the ambiance are perfect. Loved the Blue Seas Courtyard. The crowd was a little older, more of retirement age but very friendly. I would just recommend a few more items in the kitchen, like a sponge or brillo pad to wash the pots. The kitchen was great to have, but pretty sparse. I would recommend bringing a good frying pan if you plan on cooking often.

Hi Suzanne...good point on the Brillo pad. We will keep new ones available in a baggie under the sinks. We still offer old-fashioned dishcloths for washing dishes because they can be thoroughly cleaned. We generally have basic items stocked in the kitchens but actually have more extensive cooking supplies available upon request. Best wishes, Cristie

Close to the beach

Posted Mar 11, 2017
Overall a nice place to stay. It is just a few blocks from the beach. They provide beach towels, beach chairs and small beach umbrellas. We stayed in room 9 and it was cutely decorated and had a nice little sitting area outside. The grounds were beautiful, and Gary the manager was nice when we checked in and asked questions. The other thing we loved was it's walking distant to restaurants and shopping. I am very critical about hotel rooms so a overall scope of 4/5 is pretty good. A few things I was not happy with, the floor was not as clean as I would of liked (there was some dirt in the corners and under the luggage rack) the fridge in the kitchen was clean on the inside but the side of the fridge was dirty and needed cleaned. There was a large wedge pillow on the bed when we got there that was covered in vinyl that had a spot of food on it. The mattress was comfortable however it was squeaky, and the box springs on the bottom was old and held together with a strap of some sort. Overall a nice place. I would stay again. We really enjoy the area!

Hi Aimee; Thank you for taking the time to review our 'hacienda'! We appreciate you bringing to our attention a few imperfections. I was surprised about the squeaky bed since our beds or bases don't have any springs. When we checked it out we found that the wheels on the metal bed frames were squeaky. With a little WD40 the squeak completely disappeared. The side of the fridge sometimes builds up a few rust spots from the sea salt because we are so close to the ocean. We try to keep up with them with special rust remover, but we do wash them during every check-out. We also try to do a good job on mopping our Spanish tile floors. I noticed that the legs of the luggage rack in your room had some dust bunnies attached to the Velcro that protects our floors from scratching. We will pay closer attention to that in the future. Hope to see you again in the near future!
