What a great surprise this little hotel turned out to be! Managers, Reggie and Nathalie are the best! We arrived early after a cruise and our room was ready! Asked for food recommendations, taxi info and shuttle service to get around the area. Outstanding! Saved us a lot of time and effort for our 1 day stay! We are so happy with the service we can't wait to stay again. Only this time for at least a week! Perfect location for beach, restaurants or just relaxing by the pool. The boats that were tied to the dock on the canal side were just a plus of beautiful scenery to enjoy! Area safe to walk around even after dark. And calls to anywhere in US or CANADA are free!!! Who does that today? This little hotel really is worth checking out! We will be back for sure - with friends!

Clean doesn't begin to describe this gem. Natalie and Reggie are wonderful hosts.

This was the easiest check-in and check-out I have ever had at a hotel! I pre-paid for everything through this site and didn't have to do a thing when I got to the hotel. The location of Kira is perfect as well! It is close to the key west style Las Olas shops and restaurants, however, far enough away that it remains quiet. Each night, I never heard any loud noises from other guests as it seemed all the other guests were very respectful and mature. The pool is in a perfect location too. It is surrounded by the building and trees so it stays shady in the hot Florida sun. At night, the pool area is very colorful and lit up. You can still see the water canal from the pool deck area. There are BBQ's and picnic tables that are shaded in case you want to do a little grilling out. The rooms themselves are spacious and comfortable. The hardwood floors, that aren't slippery, are very nice, and having two flat screen TV's with every channel possible is nice as well. I would definitely stay here again if I had to be in the area!

The location is ideal to reach the beach on one side and the restaurants , riverwalk in the other direction. It was a quiet retreat with all that we needed.

Wonderful staff person. Well maintained small complex. Was comfortable and centrally located to all Ft Lauderdale activities- beach, restaurants, shopping, water taxi, and a heated swimming pool onsite. Need to have a car to take advantage of the area. We would like to return.

My daughter and I had a wonderful 7 day stay at the Kira-Mar. The owners are very attentive to their guests and the hotel is immaculately clean. The location was convenient to walking to both shops and restaurants along Los Olas Blvd and to the beach. (The walk is a bit longer to the beach...about a mile or so. I you want to venture further, I'd recommend renting a car.) The pool area is very nice with a lush tropical feel to it. We spent a lot of time there relaxing and reading some good books.

This place is simply amazing. I can not describe any better than that.. The room was incredible, the location is in exactly the right spot. The pool is heated perfectly for night swimming. Property also has a grill for your use. Perfect for groups and couples wanting a getaway. Booking my next getaway as we speak.

The hotel was wonderful, the rooms were spacious, comfortable, the daily breakfast was a great perk, the pool area was beautiful. The only drawback was there was no fan over the stove so we had to open the kitchen window when we cooked. All in all, I would definitely go back and recommend it.

My Wife and I chose Kira-Mar for a post-cruise/anniversary hotel. We could have not been more pleased. Reggie and Nathalie were nothing short of amazing, the consumate hosts. Kira-Mar is close to the beach and Las Olas and the pool and grounds are beautiful. If your looking for a relaxing place that feels like home, you can't beat Kira-Mar. Thanks again Reggie And Nathalie, you made the difference!

The Kira-Mar offers a great location at an affordable price. We enjoyed the relax, yet attentive, atmosphere of the hotel. The rooms were well appointed and had all the amenities you would need. The hotel staff were wonderful hosts and available to assist with any requests. The grounds and rooms were very clean and well maintained. The location is convenient to shopping at Las Olas or the Ft Lauderdale beach. We would recommend the Kira-Mar and look forward to a return visit there.

This is a good place to stay for a reasonable price and I will probably stay there again. The rooms were very clean and the staff was excellant.

Kira-Mar is located a short distance from Las Olas, the main shopping district in Fort Lauderdale. Our room was clean and comfortably accommodated three individuals. They serve a basic, yet complete, breakfast from 9-11a, Monday - Saturday. They provide beach towels and a limited number of beach chairs too. It was really nice to return to the swimming pool after lunch and a day at the beach. I would definitely stay at Kira-Mar again!

We had stayed at one of the big Hotel chains right on the beach for the first 5 days of our trip to Fort Lauderdale and had booked the Kira-Mar for the last 2 days. Big mistake! We should have stayed at the Kira-Mar from the beginning. From the minute we walked onto the property the owners daughter and housekeeping were wonderful to us. The room was spotless with a separate bedroom, livingroom, dining area and kitchen. Everything you could want to make your stay comfortable was there. We had the pool to ourselves most of the day, instead of fighting for a chaise in the shade or paying 15 dollars for an umbrella..... they even included a continental breakfast with coffee, tea, juices, fruit, cereals and bagels.. nice touch. We were sorry to have missed the owners as they got rave reviews but their daughter was very warm and welcoming. If we ever go back to Fort Lauderdale we will be heading here first. We loved it!

The Kira-Mar villas are wonderful. Will definitely stay here again when visiting Fort Lauderdale

off the main road so a car is needed but a great quiet clean place to stay. staff couldn't have been friendlier without being intrusive. convenient to everything if you have a car. place is clean, roomy and peaceful.

The Kira-Mar Waterfront Villas in Ft. Lauderdale were perfect for our two-night stay in the area. The villas, formerly a 12-unit '50's-era two story apartment complex, are tastefully appointed and decorated rooms with immaculately maintained grounds around the courtyard pool. The management staff were very courteous and helpful. The location is a long block off of Las Olas in a quiet neighborhood on a canal street, approximately half-way between the downtown shopping & entertainment district and the shoreline beach area, less than a mile in either direction. Free parking is available at the premise. The complimentary breakfast is modest; bagels, bread, spreads, fresh fruit, cereals, milk and juices. Our particular unit was a one-bedroom 'suite', complete with a full kitchen, dining area, living room, and a bedroom with a large walk-in closet. The king bed was one of the best I have ever slept on in a hotel setting. While being resort-like the Kira-Mar can in no way be confused with the much larger resort condominium hotels lining Ocean Blvd. This is a definite return-to and recommend-to place. [...] Not everyone will like this type of property but well worth giving serious consideration.

My husband and I had a great time here. Our room was spotless and had everything we needed - including a kitchenette, beach towels, and two chairs outside our door for sitting on the (shared) balcony. Awesome heated pool and beautiful location right on a canal. Parking for each unit is provided, and a basic continental breakfast is served each day except Sunday. I would recommend having a car or bicycle/scooter if you stay here so you can get around. It's a one mile walk to the beach, but an easy walk to the shops on Las Olas blvd. The place was soooo quiet and we were the only ones using the pool and awesome bbq area. The manager lit tiki lights and put on music for us while we bbq, which was nice. My only grip is the bed was small for two people and uncomfortable - the mattress was way too thin.

The location of the Kir-Mar Villas is perfect. It's between the Fort Lauderdale Beach and Riverfront Walk. You can have fun and excitement in any direction you decide to travel. The staff is great. They were warm and welcoming. Our room was equipped with a kitchen and dishes. They have an outdoor patio with a large gas grill. The pool is very clean and the water temperature is wonderful; day and night. The apartment style villa is ideal for the single person, couple or family that wants the feeling of home away from home.

Cute little place however we were in an end unit and herd cars doors closing all night long. Sounded like they were pracitly in our room. In anther part of this place it would be fine place to stay.
