I woke up with a pounding headache and a stinking hangover. However, after breakfast I was cured!! We headed to Everglades Holiday Park, home of the Gator boys (animal planet) where we went on an airboat ride. We saw loads of alligators, up close and some other stunning scenery. A great day out and a bonus getting this trip half price - it pays to be in the police over ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hollywood By The Sea
A group of 7 of us stayed at the B&B and thought it was lovely, a real home from home and Dean served up some excellent breakfasts. Soft drinks were also available, included in the room rate, which we thought was a really nice touch and much appreciated. The standard of accommodation was very good although if you have a choice I wouldn't stay in the Purple Haze Room on the ground floor only because we tended to get woken up very early each day with noise from the kitchen. The room itself was great.
I stayed at hollywood bed and breakfast for 2 nights and enjoyed it a lot.
Oops, Dean lost the reservation
My husband and I booked 4 nights at the B&B for the end of April. Unfortunately, Dean messed up our reservation and then had no space for us so he put us up at a Marriott over looking a freeway for a night. Not quite the same as staying on the beach. He never did send us any confirmation (paper or email) of our reservation. It was extrememly disappointing since it was our first vacation without our 4yr old son. Dean said he had a room the next night and then two nights after that but who wants to move everynight of a vacation AND be "homeless" everyday between check in at one place and check out at another. Anyway, the vacation was saved thanks to my husband and we did have a great time in the area. Just be careful when booking this B&B, maybe have back up accomodations.
I stayed here at the end of March and I got to see all of the rooms except one so I will review them each individually.
We stayed with Dean at Hollywood by the Sea for 8 nights, and he was a superb host. As far as we were concerned, it was an ideal B&B experience, basically being a pampered guest in someone's home. It's just that this home is a few steps from the beach in a quiet section of Hollywood Beach. Dean is very down to earth, informal, and eager to make his guests comfortable. As other reviewers have said, his breakfasts are extensive- he'll ask you what you want each morning and his selections were unexpectedly comprehensive (e.g., plenty of different fresh veggies for omelets and real maple syrup for pancakes and french toast- in South Florida no less!). Lots of little bells and whistles-- the run of the kitchen, any and all satellite movie channels on a wide screen TV, chairs and umbrellas for the beach. Dean does a nice job of being helpful and engaging without being intrusive-- a necessary skill for any good innkeeper. In keeping with that style, you can hang out with him and eat in the kitchen as he cooks or sit in a variety of places out by the pool; he's very laid back about such things. He's a Hollywood native, so he has an endless supply of info about the area for any and all tastes and budgets. The B&B itself is very comfy, and Dean has put a tremendous amount of work into it. Expect clean, well-appointed, and kitchy in a South Florida way (e.g., a furry phone and a plastic covered Betty Boop chair in our room). You can easily stay here a week without a car and walk the Broadwalk to many good restaurants. Our favorite was Las Brisas, an excellent Argentinian/Italian restaurant with impeccable service. There are a lot of tourists from Quebec, so many of the restaurants are French-influenced. The closest restaurant is a Japanese/Thai place-- we had mixed experiences there, but Dean swears by the sushi.
Hollywood by the Sea B & B is a
My husband and I stayed here at the end of January '06 for three nights. Dean is a great host. His breakfasts are awesome. He has different breads, bacon and or sausage, fruit ,juices, and lots of coffee! He will also make you eggs any way you like.
There is a pool on the property which is heated. One lays there among the palm trees enjoying the sun and Dean's stories.
Dean can arrange a massage for you if you desire and he makes great recommendations for dinner!
The B & B is about half a block from the beach and in a nice quiet, safe neighborhood. The rooms are nice and have a/c. My husband and I highly recommend this B & B.
Returned from an extended vacation in Floria recently. Part of our trip included a stay at the Hollywood-by-the-Sea Bed and Breakfast owned by Dean Liotta. We were more than pleased with the experience. The B & B is clean and well-decorated. Its location is adjacent to the Hollywood "Broadwalk" and beach. The area is quiet. The owner prepares a breakfast (all you can eat) that is cooked to order supplemented by fresh fruit, bagels, toast,a variety of juices, etc. Coffee was excellent (a must for us!). We were able to prepare our own dinner there on the grill as well (if one chose to do that). Dean made all who stayed there feel as if we were in our own homes! I cannot say enough about his hospitality! We felt the rates reasonable, especially for this time of year (and on the beach!). We stayed in a suite, which suited our purposes and provided more than enough room.
This B&B rates up there with some of the best hotels around when it comes to comfort, location and most of all ambience. Our host, Dean, made us feel as if we were family as did the other guests. this is a great place for the 30 to 55 year old crowd. Relaxing, Dean makes a great breakfast and the kitchen is open all the time for drinks and snacks. the small pool was perfect and the 100 ft. to the beach was way more than we could have hoped for. This is a definite bargain and a great place to relax.
WOW...This place has it all!! My wife and I stayed here on a Valentines weekend getaway..We loved it..First and foremost it is right on the beach.
We stayed here in Feb 2004. The host, Dean Liotta, runs a great and fun little B&B. A far better experience than any of the hotels in Hollywood Beach. The place has a heated pool, home-cooked breakfasts, and great rooms all surrounding the pool/courtyard. We felt right at home. And it's literally a stone's throw from the beach and broadwalk (that's "BROAD", not "BOARD" as it's not made of wood as we found out). We'll be back....
