If you want to stay near the beach, with rooms spacious enough to call home, the Ocean Sky Hotel Fort Lauderdale fills the bill. The scent of polished wood, tiki canopies and palm trees hangs in the air, and when dusk settles, the hotel lights up in aqua hues, preparing guests for a night of marine-side dancing, or a secluded dip in the outdoor Jacuzzi. Dine in American-Continental style on the sunny brick terrace, or take a long swig of your cocktail before the ocean waves in the tiki bar. Rent out jet skis or scuba equipment nearby for a little extra action on the waves, or retreat to the games room indoors when the air gets cooler.

Neighborhood

The Galleria Shopping Mall provides contemporary entertainment amongst the bargain rails, or visitors can take a trip back in time to the stately Bonnet House and Gardens (both under three miles away). Head out into the sea with a dinner-cruise aboard the Jungle Queen to capture the whole of the shoreline with your senses, as well as your camera.
Hints and tips
The hotel's north-facing rooms give shy travelers the quietest stay, while view-seekers will adore the 9th floor.Check out the selection of Mediterranean-inspired restaurants on the fishing pier, or head toward the city center along Commercial Street for favorite grills like Flanigans.

Horrible trip

My husband and I have visited fort lauderdale multiple times and we are extremely disappointed in the service that was provided to us at Ocean Sky. We had to call multiple times to get fresh towels and out room cleaned. We were forced to sign out names on a log the house keeper kept which I was later told by management should have never happened. We will never stay at that hotel ever again.

So wonderful, I extended my stay

I enjoyed my stay at this resort. Not only was the entire ambiance beautiful and well-structured to meet the needs of each guests, but the staff was most pleasant and helpful. The hotel is located directly on the ocean, providing immediate access to relaxation and tranquility. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a quiet place to hide away and relax. Perfect for couples! At the end of my 4 day stay, I made arrangements for an additional night, it was hard to say goodbye.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

Just a short drive away from the resort is an excellent restaurant called Arubas. There you'll enjoy live music and good food--right on the beach!

Wonderful Getaway

We had a wonderful stay at the Ocean Sky Resort which is located on the beach. The room/bathroom were very clean. Sheets were snow white and crisp. The room was equipped with a coffee pot and frig which came in handy. We asked to move to another room the next day because the a/c unit was right below us and they were quick to accommodate us. We were able to view the ocean from our balcony. The staff were very friendly. The only downfall is that parking is $15.00 per day, but well worth if as they had a valet service. I recommend this hotel for family and couples.

GREAT place to get away

I absolutely LOVED staying here, balcony view was fantastic, ocean, pool, jacuzzi all available from dawn to dusk. When they say it's all about location, this is an excellent location to just relax and enjoy the amenities. My vacation was AWESOME, I left feeling relaxed and revived...

Nice Beach Hotel

Hotel in good location in Ft Lauderdale on the beach. Beach right in front of hotel with easy access from the pool. Located on Galt Ocean Drive which is surrounded by other high level condos and another condo/hotel. Easy to walk to some restaurants/stores and a block off A1A so less busy road. Helpful and friendly staff. Rooms were just average and reasonably clean. You stay at this hotel with a priority for the beach and not being in a premier room. Our friends had a suite with a direct and excellent ocean view from their window. We had a standard room with partial ocean view and balcony. We were there in June so off-season and I'm sure it's busier during the winter. Nice hotel for famliy with children. Pool was good and large jacuzzi was working and hot - felt great :) A nice hotel for the price and we would use again in the future.
