"Amazing location and surprising value."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I booked a small group trip to Ocean Sky Hotel and Resort for 10 12 rooms. The location is directly on the beach about a 7 min Lyft ride from the main Ft Lauderdale beach area. Rooms were recently renovated and clean. Staff was warm and friendly. Only minor was the restaurant didn't seem staffed very well so it took awhile to get service and food. There are also several good restaurants within walking distance. We all said we will return to the Ocean sky Resort for sure.

Overall Score5.0/ 5
I had a small group at this hotel the night before we left on a cruise. I have to say that the hotel constantly went way beyond my expectations. They were there for me with all of my needs, even last minute ones. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and nicely furnished. It is right on the beach with beautiful ocean views. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Overall Score5.0/ 5
We hosted our meet and greet/ cocktail hour in the restaurant the night before the wedding. Everyone from Hasan, to the servers, to Jessica who booked us was polite, professional and simply amazing! I stayed two nights there and it was perfect! The staff was amazing helping me and my bridesmaid prepare for the wedding. My other guests who stayed as well had nothing but great things to say as well!

"Beachfront location is great but that's the best thing!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I planned my 50th birthday nine months in advance. When I visited the property I asked to see a suite and a regular room so that I could see what my guests would experience. Apparently the rooms adjacent to suites have been slightly upgraded and the suites are very nice. I was extremely disappointed to find out from my guests who flew in from various parts of the country that their rooms showed signs of water damage with water spots on the walls and ceilings; no mirrors except the one in the bathroom over the sink; very old carpet in the rooms; housekeeping did not clean the rooms; didn't replace dirty towels. Registration desk personnel was clueless to my agenda which again had been worked out in advance and the same can be said of the wait staff at the hotel restaurant where I had my birthday dinner. I was extremely disappointed. I would not recommend.
