I stayed here from the 16th-31st and my main review is that you cannot get a better value in a condo right on the beach in Ft. Lauderdale!
Here are my only complaints: -This is not the most up-to-date condo. The fit and finish leave a bit to be desired. The light switch at the door is broken and upon first entering, it is pretty dark. I'm not a fan of shower curtains; there was a bit of mold. The closet door is missing. The condo is located next to the elevator and you can hear everything going on in the hall. The 2nd floor location is directly above the entrance to the beach/pool/tiki bar and every conversation & smoker filters straight up to the patio. The a/c is funky and makes a big LOUD clunk when it shuts off. I just kept the thermostat on 55º but I know it was no where near that cold in the room. Parking is $8/day; but it is valet and they are respectful and parked my car close every day. Dogs are allowed in the building and I had several barkers nearby during the stay.
Here are the good points: Galt Ocean Drive is amazing, there are all levels of eateries and shops, groceries & trinkets. The beach is just steps away, the condo includes towels, chairs & umbrellas or you can rent from the resort at their private beach. The Tiki Hut bar is fun and tourist-y and has food all day and into the night. The pool is large. The condo is clean and comfy, the kitchen is well equipped, the bath has extra towels. The queen bed is good.
Tips: I brought a small fan to circulate air and make some white noise at night. It prevented me from hearing all the noises in the hall.
I would recommend this condo to you. It is a little small for more than 2 people though.
My daughter and I came down for a special celebratory trip and we were soooo pleased with every single detail! The apartment manager (Tomiko) was beyond helpful, the room had everything (and more!) that we needed, the resort itself is awesome, the view from the room is priceless, everything that you need is within walking distance, I could go on and on and on! I will definitely be coming back. Truly the most relaxing vacation of my life so far!!!
We stayed there more than a week. Everything was really nice. The apartmen was very clean, organized and totally neat. nd the view unbelievAble. I highly reccomended for everyone. Tomiko was a sweetheart and so helpful. The studio was prepared for everything we had many towels( beach for bath for hands) papertowels, bathroom tissues we got also a lil welcome present fruits and local sweets. That was nice from them. My boyfriend my dor and me really enjoyed our time overthere if we ll be around deffinitely we ll stay at Ocean Manor
We stayed for a week. The room was exactly as presented on the web site. It was perfect for the two of us. The room was clean and had everything we needed. It had a perfect view of the beach and the sunrise every morning. The beach was beautiful and not over crowded. We were close to everything we wanted to do. We did rent a car and drove to Miami and Hollywood Beach. We were also close to many attractions and really enjoyed the air boat tour at Hollywood Park. There was enough kitchen utensils to allow us to actually cook a few meals in. We ate at the Bahia Mar Cabana which is write on the water. Delicious food! We also enjoyed the Old Key Lime House in Lake Worth. We enjoyed coffee on the balcony every morning and a comfortable bed at night. We would definitely stay here again.
After reading several reviews on the Ocean Manor Resort, we were somewhat hesitant to rent in the building. The building definitely shows its age and the hotel staff is OK. However, this particular unit was great! You don't have to deal with checking in and out with the hotel staff. It was VERY clean with fresh sheets, towels, etc. The room did not smell stale or stuffy. Tomiko, who met us upon arrival, was very informative and helpful. The unit is very comfortable and has all the necessities needed for a week long vacation. The location is great. There is a grocery store, liquor store, and Dunkin Donuts all within walking distance. There is no need for car unless you're planning some sightseeing. We just were interested in a simple "beach vacation". The balcony has beautiful views of the ocean just like the pictures in the listing. The tiki bar was a great spot during some of the thunderstorms and the food was good and reasonably priced. Only downside was that you couldn't bring your own cocktails down to the pool or private beach area. If you are crafty, you can find ways around that like we did.
First off I want to say that renting this unit was very easy, the owner and property manager went above and beyond answering any & all emails.
The property manager met us at the unit and walked us through. The unit was very clean & cozy, just right for my husband and myself.
The view was outstanding, it was wonderful to sit out on the balcony and have breakfast every morning.
The Tiki Bar was great, very convenient & the food was awesome. They gave great service and were very friendly. In addition the restaurant in the hotel was very good as well.
A few downsides - the hotel does not let you bring your own beach chairs or umbrellas (which the condo does provide) The hotel charges $5.00 for each beach chairs & $10.00 for umbrella - per day. If you have your own beach mat, I would advice you to bring it.
A bigger downside was the noise level in the hotel, people coming back for the night - screaming in the hallways, loud banging - every night. Very disruptive and uncaring of other people trying to sleep. Unfortunately, we didn't sleep much - which is something we look forward to on our vacations.
Overall, I would return to this condo - it was clean & updated and the beach and view were amazing.
