... He had his clothes on, the truck locked, me by the hand and was running down the street in seconds. He had me in a bathroom within two minutes flat. Afterward we were sitting outside just in case I needed the restroom again (I didn't) and JP bought me a rose from a homeless women named Monica. She was drinking a soda with a straw, had two teeth, seemed old but with extremely young looking legs. Tall and seemed ...

... the shade but those Freakin Florida ants kept swarming my legs and biting. I shouldn't complain, at least I didn't have to carry anything. I want to point put that 91 degrees here feels much hotter than 91 degrees anywhere else. As we we leaving JP had to get creative because we got locked into the complex by a chain and a padlock. $5. Nuff ...

The bros trip south

... raining, but when we got there it stopped so we went with our old plan go to Rapids water park. All the rides were fun but most memorable was the big thunder. Big thunder is a four person tube ride with a twist, when you near the end there is a 45 degree drop into a giant side ways funnel, sooooo ...

West Palm Beach - Final Leg!

A travel blog entry by thecrankies on May 02, 2014

We arrived in West Palm Beach on schedule. After 2 stops, not only did the luggage make it, but it beat us to the baggage carousel. A good sign to be sure. We couldn't be in West Palm Beach without taking in some of the nightlife, so we dined at a popular resto bar area called City Place and strolled around a bit. However, after a long day, it was an early night – The epic road trip starts ...

... marina across from the anchorage for a couple days to top of their gas and water and do laundry. We'll do the same tomorrow.
We took the dingy over to Sea Camp for happy hour and it was so good to see them again. We met up with them at Great Sail Cay in the Abacos and again at Crab Cay and Marsh Harbor. They are also heading out weather permitting to Lauderdale and Miami and eventually the Exumas and hopefully Dominican Republic. (See pictures below)

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Biba West Palm Beach

    Buyer Beware!

    from

    Biba is BAD! The room was just not right. It was cute in theory, but not in reality. The bathroom was GROSS. They asked you to put your used towels on the floor, and keep the ones you haven't used. We did that, but we found our used (STILL WET!) towels folded and put on our beds!

    Strike one. I was afriad to touch the tile in the shower because it was grimy. We went to the beach ( the pool was filmy!) and when we returned our fire alarm was going off. They took our fire alarm and said they couldn't get a new one until a few days later. THEN!!! We found a BUG!

    on one of the pillows. Needless to say we left....the man who checked us out was nice, and apologetic, but I will NEVER return to Biba (Hell) we moved to the PGA Resort...soooooo much better!! No need to even leave!

    Never again !!

    from

    Everything was poor but I decided to stay in the hotel. But on Wednesday,(12/04/03) they had a party in the bar. The hotel is really small; my room was in front of the partys place, with a really loud music, people walking in front of my room, drinking, etc. They moved me into another room that was in front of the parking lot with cars coming and leaving. Terrible night!!!. The party was from 10pm until 2 am. Aprox.TERRIBLE!!!

    Could Use Some Work

    from

    This hotel isn't really all it's cracked up to be. The room that I stayed in was very nice; two very comfortable queen sized beds with Egyptian cotton sheets, lotions that smelled like baked goods, a CD player, large TV..... The hotel itself has an excellent location, close to downtown, airport, etc. Unfortunately, due to the lack of carpet in the rooms and lack of upkeep for the gardens and pool, I was none too thrilled. I didn't have the opportunity to partake of the complimentary breakfast. I would suggest this place if you are able to obtain a great deal (below $70 per night), but otherwise there are much better hotels to be had in Palm Beach.

    Something Ain't Right

    from

    The hotel is not as it appears in the pictures. It is a little rundown and almost weirdly quiet. The rooms have no carpet, only lenolium. They are scented with some strange air freshener device that we turned off the second we entered and still had to wash everything we brought when we got home. Parking is a disaster. Bathrooms were gross, they had painted the shower tiles and it would peel off on us. The cable was out and the TV was making noises like it was going to fall down. The pool was ok, but again not as it was made out to be. And the staff was not all that friendly. I wouldn't recommend this MOTEL (its not a hotel) to anyone especially at a hundred bucks a night. I was looking to take my boyfriend away for a nice romantic weekend and would rather have stayed at the holiday inn.

    PS. Our room was right along the road (seperated by a fence) and all you heard all night was people at the bar and trucks passing by).

    Motel HELL

    from

    This place is terrible! No carpet, no shampoo in the "shower room", no place to put away clothing. Do not come here!

    An eNJOYABLE STAY

    from

    I arrived at the Hotel Biba in February, right after the big blizzard of 2003. The hotel was a pleasant surprise. The grounds are extremely well maintained, and the whole complex is completely private. My room was very nice, and spacious. The bath, however could use some updating, but it was very clean. The room had a big bay window, and was very cheerful. The grounds, and swimming pool are kept immaculate. I enjoyed the breakfast served daily in the Biba Lounge. The location is excellent at the end of Belvedere Rd., just a short drive to City Place attractions and a short drive over the bridge to Palm Beach, and Worth Ave. shopping. The staff was very helpful and the cocktail lounge is a great place to unwind after a day of sight seeing (in my case house hunting) When I return to Florida in July I will certainly stay at the Hotel Biba.

    Horrible!

    from

    The motel (not hotel) is rundown and is not what appears in the pictures. Whoever gives this place a good review is out of there mind. I did not stay there due to the conditions and had to redirect my whole vacation. Hotel Biba is on a main street with a wooden fence (approx. 10' high) seperating it from the inner city of West Palm and your next door neighboor is an auto parts store. The bathrooms where missing tiles and the furniture was not in tact. Maybe the Hotel looked as it did on the website years ago with some angled and airbrushed photography. Only if I knew then what I knew now. AND YES THEY WILL CHARGE OR PENALIZE YOU FOR THE FIRST NIGHT IF YOU CHOOSE TO CANCELL!!!! BEWARE!!!

    Hip Tropical Garden Hotel

    from

    My wife and I travel to Palm Beach frequently in the winter and always stay at Biba because of its hip design and excellent price. This is the best value in the area by far. We like the hotel's casual atmosphere (this is a flip flop and t-shirt hotel) and original, modern interior design. We also like that gardens wind through the property and you are constantly walking underneath coconut palms down aged stone pathways to get to your room, Biba Bar or the pool. Although not fancy, they spent their money where it counts: it has the most comfortable bed i have slept on at any price anywhere. It is (long) walking distance from downtown, cityplace and the bay but in a cute nighborhood. Make sure you go to Biba Bar on Wed or Fri...you will be pleasantly surprised.

    Style, Style and more Style

    from

    Hotel Biba is something out of SoBe. The hip hotel is hidden from the prying eyes of the masses and allows you to feel like you are the only one at the hotel. The zen like gardens at Biba are the perfect places to enjoy a drink and if you are around on a Wednesday or a W-end you don't have to leave the property because the party comes to you. On Wednesday the lounge party plays host to DJs spinning records and beautiful people. Biba is an experience that should not be missed especially if you can not make it to SoBe.

    Never again

    from

    I saw the BIBA ads on the internet and booked the "Hotel". When looking at the Hotel, pool, rooms and grounds upon arrival, it dawned on me what creative photography and creative writing can do to one's expectations. I did not stay at the Hotel

    but had to pay for a night. Never again!
