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.

I booked this hotel on a quick whim because it was a great deal. I'm glad I did. It was a perfect hotel that made me feel it was boutique style. Gave me that Florida vibe. We were conveniently located to the market, coffee shops, eateries. Whatever we needed was right there and within walking distance. Our room was on the 7th floor and right off the elevator, so I would recommend something not so close as you hear the bell every time it stops on your floor. A little small and I wish walls were sound proof because sometimes people forget they are in a hotel and that others can be sleeping, but that is in any hotel I guess. I also wish that self park and valet was not the same cost because it does add up. However the valet staff was wonderful and friendly. We enjoyed the restaurant in the hotel as well. Read less

This hotel is in a very convenient area especially if you want to drive to Miami or drive north to Palm Beach. Its very clean and the rooms are nice, just a bit dated but the bathroom is renovated, and the beds are comfortable. The balconies arent private but all have a great view of the ocean. We wanted to say a big thank you to Eddie, the concierge, he was extremely helpful with his advice and gave us discount coupons for Miami tours, he was always friendly and remembered our names each time we talked. He was a great help to us and we really appreciate it, unfortunately the other concierge there was not as helpful and did not offer any discount coupons when we mentioned the same Miami tours, so I would definitely only deal with Eddie, he was very knowledgeable!! The hotel is also in a very convenient area for coffee, small restaurants and grocery stores. This hotel is definately a good choice to stay at for touring around the area. Read less

The Ocean Sky Hotel enjoys an excellent location with direct beach access and with easy walking distance to stores and restaurants. The room was spacious, clean (many kudos to housekeeping staff) and comfortable with visibly recent updates. The bathroom was exceptional for a property in this price range (marble shower with dual shower heads). Linens and toiletries were very good quality. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and I felt very welcomed as a guest. The pool is nice, but was very crowded, especially with children, at some times. I thought the hotel was non-smoking , but guests were smoking (vaping?) at the outdoor bar and under the area covered by an awning. I assume this is permitted. It was not a huge issue, and I enjoyed my stay enough to return in the future. Read less

The hotel private beach was absolutely disgusting. There was trash scattered all over the beach. from things like fishing lures, straws, glass cup, shoe parts, a condom, chip bags, and cigarette butts. When I inquired, twice, about who was to be cleaning the beach, I was told it was housekeeping's job. I never once saw anyone cleaning the beach… Read more
The hotel private beach was absolutely disgusting. There was trash scattered all over the beach. from things like fishing lures, straws, glass cup, shoe parts, a condom, chip bags, and cigarette butts. When I inquired, twice, about who was to be cleaning the beach, I was told it was housekeeping's job. I never once saw anyone cleaning the beach besides the tractor that was "cleaning" the seaweed. Its sad because all that trash ends up in our oceans and animals mistake the trash for food. There needs to more enforcement and accountability for keeping the "private" beaches clean. Read less
