Ocean Sky Hotel and Resort

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

The hotel

Leisure and lazy days are both on offer at Ocean Sky Resort — perched in a prime spot along the white sands of Fort Lauderdale. Enjoy water sports as well as oceanfront mini-golf then relax watching the sun set from the oceanfront pool and Tiki Bar. The recently refurbished bedrooms all feature balconies and sleek new sky blue glass railings. If you fancy a break from the sand, sea and water sports, the downtown district’s shopping, dining and entertainment are just a quick drive away.

Our family stayed 3 nights at this hotel. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub the most and the accessibility of the beach chairs in the pool area. We had a room with a partial view of the ocean on the 7th floor and enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evenings.

Our family stayed 3 nights at this hotel. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub the most and the accessibility of the beach chairs in the pool area. We had a room with a partial view of the ocean on the 7th floor and enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evenings. We did not request our room to be cleaned each day, but when we needed new towels and trash emptied, they accommodated us. The shower never got completely hot, but after hot, humid days, that ended up being okay. We all thought the bed and pillows were comfortable and slept well. The beach elevator is nice as you don't need to track sand and water through the lobby. It is a bummer that you need to pay for mini golf (which we chose not to do...$12/day and the course is not that exciting). Also, they charge to rent a chair on the beach and an umbrella...did not pay for that either. We also did not pay to order drinks from the Tiki bar-too expensive. We were there Sun-Wed so the resort was not overly crowded. We liked that it was on the beach and it was located not too far from the downtown restaurants. We would recommend this hotel. Read less

Checked in by 2 staff,one being the night manager (friendly guy) & other by a girl & her face was tripping her,(just gave impression that she could not be bothered). We where a party of 9 so had 3 room,s all on level 7. Room was average with sea view.. One of our party has been sick in bed due to a stomach bug, and we where charged for a new mattress at check out. So just hope none of the kids take ill if your staying. Apart from this,the hotel is right in the beach which we enjoyed. Also cost $18 a night to park your car. . Read less

Accommodations were horrible. Maids did an awful job of cleaning room . Trash always left in room, as well as dirty towels. Not sure if my room was ever really cleaned. Guest services were not the friendliest or helpful. I will never ever stay at this hotel again. Just nasty!

The hotel is very nice, clean, new and modern design. We love that theres a service elevator going to the pool/beach so you don't have to pass by the lobby. The restaurant is nice and cool plus the alfresco restaurant serves good food and the tiki bar. Lobby is very quaint, drop off area is wide enough to accommodate people and luggages.… Read more

As for the service and the employees,very average,did not really care from the front desk to the restaurant,tried to re-order another drink but the waitress disappeared on us.Poorly managed all around no sense of direction compare to the 4 days in Naples ,day and night.
