Nightly entertainment, a lively tiki bar and residential amenities

Ocean Manor Beach Resort channels the best of the South Florida lifestyle, from the beachside tiki bar to the luxury penthouses with sweeping views of the skyline and Atlantic Ocean. Long before a multimillion dollar makeover, the hotel also hosted A-listers like Johnny Carson and Eric Clapton. The property keeps leisure at the forefront, entertaining guests with nightly entertainment and multiple lodging options equipped with kitchenettes, kitchens and terraces for soaking up the seaside vistas.

Highlights
  • Fort Lauderdale hotel with outdoor pool and nightly entertainment
  • Penthouses with spa baths, balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows
  • Some rooms with kitchenettes and kitchens
  • Tiki bar and sushi lounge
Rooms

Ocean Manor Beach Resort rooms treat guests to residential amenities like mini refrigerators, microwaves and views of the skyline or Atlantic Ocean via balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows. An emphasis on heavy woods, from sleigh bed frames to hardwood floors, creates traditional style. Suites are tailored for families and big groups with the addition of kitchenettes, lounging and dining areas. For VIP luxury, reserve a penthouse suite, which lives like a mini mansion in the sky with high-end furniture, gourmet kitchens, spa baths and expansive terraces with dining tables.

Dining

The seaside setting plays a major influence on food at Ocean Manor Beach Resort, where guests choose from the laid-back Bamboo Beach Tiki Bar & Café or the lounge-restaurant hybrid, Tokyo Blue. Both serve a heavy dose of ambiance, with the former dishing out casual beach fare, tropical drinks and live entertainment nightly. Sushi bar, Tokyo Blue, brims with eye candy, from the 1,200-gallon aquarium to the illuminated LED glass columns.

Recreation

The outdoor pool turns into a daily--and nightly--party at Ocean Manor Beach Resort as sunbathers, families and the happy hour folks gather on the sundeck or at the tiki bar. When the itch for adventure kicks in, guests take advantage of close proximity to the water with sightseeing cruises, snorkeling and diving excursions.

horrible experience!!!

Glad you asked....This hotel was the worst I have EVER stayed!! The furniture looked as if it was collected from throwaway items. The blinds in the bedroom were half off, the shower faucet dripped constantly, the tiles in the bathroom looked moldy, shower floor was rusty, ceiling was crumbling, beds had only sheets- houskeepers had not even put pillowcases on the pillows! The remote for the televisions didn't even have batteries. I was anticipating a nice CLEAN place to stay while away instead I was VERY VERY disappointed.

Comfy bed, mediocre stay.

After a hellish week of couch surfing on our honeymoon after literally being stuck in Florida after our passports and money got stolen, our friend booked this hotel for us for Friday. We arrived a day early and figured for ease, wed book the hotel also but booked it at the lower rate. We opted for this hotel mostly due to location and free parking. When we arrived and checked in, we got a free upgrade to the suite that we were scheduled to have for our second night. This was very nice, but we think the guy at the desk just didnt want to deal with the room change for us the following day. Frankly we didnt want to deal either. One thing we didnt see listed that wasnt included in our room rate was a $10 resort fee per day to cover wireless, beach rights etc. No big deal, but it would be nice to know this upfront. The hotel only offered valet parking, which we thought was free as we had opted for this hotel specifically for free parking, but were charged a one time fee of $14. When i told the guy we thought it was free, he said it was only free for visitors and for patrons dining at the hotel resteraunt. The room itself was older and outdated but overall clean. We had a kitchen, an older big screen tv and a separate bedroom suite. The bed was super comfy and clean. Everything else was sortof blah. Not gross, just old and outdated. We walked down to the hotel beach which was super dirty and covered with litter. We saw a sign stating chairs could be rented for $5 each and unbrellas for $10 each but the rentals closed at like 4pm so if we wanted to rent, it was too late. Overall the hotel was ok. It served the purpose for a bed after couch surfing, but its definitely no where wed rush back.

Dining tip: In Hotel

At check in, we recieved a gift certificate to the Tokyo Blue resteraunt within the hotel. We realized we had to spend $50 to get the $20 off. Thought it was a decent deal but most of our food was overcooked and inedible. Service was weak too. Dont fall for it!

Good Place to Stay

We stayed in a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the ocean. The room was clean and spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful. The price was excellent however you need to be aware that there is resort fee and you have to pay for parking.

Ocean Manor Beach resort - worst experience I have ever had

The place is a dump. My room had broken furniture, and was dirty with paint peeling off the walls/ceiling from the entrance to the room (white paint dust on door knob and on the floors). I asked for another room, they gave me one with a broken lock/bolt and very noisy neighbors, ended up going back to the first room as they said they didn't have any more vacancies. Standing water in both sinks outside and inside the bathroom (plumbing issues#. Curtains that don't quite close all the way - and broken furniture and tv everywhere. There wasn't even a hair dryer. Broken closet doors. Thety also charged me $10.60 resort fee #expected I gues for a dump) and $7 valet parking I was forced to pay as they didn't have any other parking. They should be ashamed of themselves, as the pictures on the internet are NOTHING like what this place is truley like. Fake / enhanced photos.

LOOKS CAN BE DECEIVING

THE STAFF WAS HELPFUL, THE SCENERY WAS BEAUTIFUL.... THE ACTUAL HOTEL, NOT SO MUCH. WALKING TO THE ROOM YOU FEEL AS IF YOUR IN APARTMENT IN THE HOOD BUT ONCE YOU GET TO THE ROOM ITS NOT AS BAD AS YOU WOULD THINK. THE BEDS COULD HAVE BEEN THE SAME THE ROOM SEEMED AS IF IT WAS A COLLEGE DORM BEFORE BUT WAS NOT THE WORST
