Ocean Sky Hotel and Resort

Fort Lauderdale, Gold Coast Beaches

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.

Matt took some great photos of us on the beach! Really great guy! He’s from Maryland and he has great rates. Very personable and captured our time together wonderfully. The hotel was okay too. Great views

Matt who takes pictures with American Beach photos is simply amazing! He’s by the pool and beach area of the hotel and is extremely convenient for taking awesome pics with his professional camera. Instantly sent us the photos and it was a breeze. Will certainly book again due to this genius concept. Memories are what matters!!

Stayed as a group before boarding for our cruise. Hotel rooms were clean. Easy checking. Nice small shop to do light shopping. Restaurant extremely overpriced but the morning waitress was very friendly.

We booked this hotel through Priceline’s “4-Star Hotel Guarantee” due to a last minute change in travel plans. After receiving the hotel information, I looked into reviews and was nervous but hoped for the best. Upon arrival, we were impressed by the updated main floor and friendly staff. Once we proceeded to our room, we found many of the claims in other reviews to be true. The hallways and rooms smelled musty and everything seemed dingy and very warn. The tap water had a yellow tone. Our sheets were pilly did not appear to have been washed as evidenced by the residue/stain on our sheets (see attached photo). We used the hot tub briefly, but it was very dirty, over-chlorinated, and only lukewarm. The wifi worked on the main level, but once we returned to our room for the night we had no connection. I fully understand it is difficult to maintain a perfectly clean outdoor hot tub, but the amount of debris floating in it (including a used bandage) did not seem acceptable. I cannot speak to the restaurant as we did not chose to dine there due to an overpriced, hodgepodge menu. If you stay here, I highly recommend the 15 minute, very safe walk to Billy Jacks Shack- amazing and high quality food, drinks, and service. There is a McDonalds, Winn Dixie, CVS, and Dunkin’ Donuts in very close proximity. Please note I am typically perfectly satisfied with hotels such as Holiday Inn Express and Wyndham Gardens that are not upscale hotels, yet I would still recommend avoiding this hotel. There is a lot of potential, but based on our experience, you can get a cleaner, higher quality hotel for less cost. Read less

Warning: International and Domestic travelers; vacationing or on business. This is not a 4 star hotel. Even though this property is on the beach, its closer to a 2 star economy/leisure hotel. I booked on priceline.com, selected the hotel based on rating and price. The experience was so bad we had to check out immediately. Arrived to a very loud neighbor guest, reserved a king and got two double beds, could smell tobacco smoke from the neighbors balcony. After the noise complaint they said they didn't have any rooms. We called back to tell them about the tobacco smoke then all the sudden they found an available room on another floor. Trust was broken and we checked out immediately. This hotel is misrepresenting their true rating. Read less
