      Wonderful stay. Do not want to say too much or else there won't be any accomodations left for us, next time *lol*
      Great staff, wonderful harbour-side restaurant, and only steps from the beautiful Ft Lauderdale beach. Who needs Miami <-:

      Horrible Management, Dirty Rooms, Mildew Smell!

      from

      We planned to stay at this hotel for a week, but the room had a TERRIBLE mildew smell, was not cleaned very well and the bathroom needed repair. Hotel management did not seem to care. The wall unit airconditioner was extremely loud! We moved to a different hotel with much better accommodations. The Bahia Cabana was at best - a hotel in need of a major renovation. Also, before you eat there... take one real good look into the cleanliness of the kitchen. Just a warning!

      Great Value! Great Time!

      from

      We returned yesterday (8/31/04) from a 3-night stay at the Bahia Cabana. It was a terrific surprise. When we first saw the outside of the hotel I was worried, but I knew we'd made the right decision when we got inside. The hotel staff was incredibly helpful, polite and friendly. The room was clean, comfortable and cheery. Parking was easy. The location was absolutely awesome! Everything you want to do is just a very short walk away. Michael at the front desk went way out of his way to help us make plans for dinner and activities. He was so friendly and helpful, I wish he worked for me! The entertainment in the bar was great, as well.

      I'd stay at the Bahia Cabana again, and in fact, plan to next year, when my family goes back to Ft. Lauderdale. It's not fancy, and by no means luxurious, but it's a great value, and a great time.

      Nice Nice and Nice

      from

      I and my girlfriend were guests of the hotel in Aug. We were really surprised at the low cost and nice location of the hotel. Right across the street is the beach and Airport is only 5 mins away. There are eating accomendations right in the hotel and you can enjoy all the activities the hotel has to offer. Hotel has a nice view and lively spirit all nite and day. Not a five star hotel but who needs a 5 star, when this hotel will be perfect for just about anyone!

      What a surprise!!!

      from

      Character!! There was something about this place that made us feel at home. It is tucked away beside the fire department and overshadowed by the Yankee hotel. The entrance is non-descript, the front desk gives you the sense that you picked the wrong place. But once you walk through the glass doors, you are in another world. All the hotel rooms open to the outside and we were on the 2nd floor. We could walk out and look over into the 20-person jacuzzi. Beside every door was a small bench that you could sit out on and listen to the music from the outdoor bar. The room was a little small but it had a refrigerator and we spent most of the time at the hotel sitting somewhere at the bar watching the boats, the water taxis, and the Jungle cruise (which is hailed by patrons of the bar during it's late return!) The hotel has a very tropical feel. It's almost like they built the hotel and the thatch hut bar around the trees. Jimmy Buffett played here!!! If that doesn't sell you---the statutes of the Blues Brothers sitting beside the jacuzzi will!!

      Looks Are Deceiving

      from

      We had a great time. The staff was wonderful. We spent more time there than we thought we would. When we pulled up we thought "It doesn't matter what it looks like we are just going to be sleeping here." When we got inside it was totally different. It was like home, if you have fun at home. We spent alot of time there. The food was great. The prices were average. We will be going back.

      Ok, but...

      from

      My husband & I recently stayed @ the Bahia Cabana.. The front desk staff was very nice when we checked in (as well as the valet..very nice feature). Unfortunately, I had requested a poolside room..(I didn't realize that a poolside room would put me in the SAME location as one of the hotel bars!). Basically, if I walked out of our room,...we were in the bar. I went to the front desk & requested another room... which I received...no problems..across the street in their bright yellow annex building. The room was dark, but seemed OK. Until I decided to take a shower & ran out of hot water! The TV reception kept flashing in/out (I had to wiggle the wires on the back of the TV to get it to come in). The bed/mattress was HORRIBLE. My husband could barely walk the next day. The hotel restaurant (excellent location..right on the marina) was horrible for breakfast...very slow service..took us over an hour to get an egg sandwich..& it wasn't even that good!). The only thing that saved this hotel for me was the staff...very nice front desk people, bartenders & valet... besides that, spend a little more $$ & stay across the street @ the Sheraton Yankee Clipper (which by the way had a decent breakfast buffet for $10).

      Bahia Cabana sucks!

      from

      I went to Bahia Cabana, and I ordered the shrimp scampi. I was fine for a few hours then I began throwing up. What exactly was wrong? I got food poisoning! It was so fun, I got to fly back to Cali while throwing up non stop. If you go to Bahia don't order the shrimp. Another thing is Bahia has really loud music and if you stay there, I hope you don't plan on sleeping.

      Bohemian at its Best

      from

      First impressions are often wrong. I was devastated when I first entered the hotel as I was expecting a "normal" hotel (other family member setup this location for a reunion). It took all of one hour to become enamored with the place. The bar/restaurant (all outside) became our living room, family room and back yard all in one. Great sevice, good food, nightly entertainment and a view of the intercostal. The beach is just across the street. The room was spare, comfortable and a bright lime green. All a part of the "charm" of the Bahia Cabana which I hope to revisit.

      Party on!

      from

      this place was so much fun! Michael, at the desk is incredibly helpful and fun. The entire staff for that matter. We didn't even have to leave to have a great time all day and all night! A great atmosphere, great food, great music every night! Especially thursday night, I think they were called Skyline. Very festive, very fun place. Valet parking was awesome and very accomodating.

      Bahia is great hang out

      from

      Didn't stay there, but did visit the tiki bar. The conch fritters were the best and make sure you grab a seat with the locals around the famous tiki bar. There is a hot tub right by the bar that holds 15 people so be sure to be there late for when things really "heat" up.

      The outside of the hotel and public areas aren't very nice. Just very old. So if you are looking for value and fun, this could be your kinda place.

      If not, at least stop by for lunch.

      After a big breakfast at our hotel - including make your own waffles - we drove to the Museum of Science and Discovery (about 3 blocks away, it turned out) because it was raining. We went on a flight simulator which was really cool and Mum screamed a lot. There were other flight simulators and we learned about the amazing human body by having arm wrestles with a machine and testing our heart rates. We also went to the ...

      This morning we got up and got some coffee from Park Café. I had read that it's pretty bad and that’s true, but it’s also free so I can live with it. We wondered around looking at some of the breakfast venues. Wipeout Café offers omelets cooked to order so I wanted to see what sides they had. It was a limited selection of bacon, fruit, and some bread. They only offer a few fillings for omelets ...

      Another wake up call this morning to make sure we got to breakfast etc. After breakfast we headed out to Walgreens to see if we could find a sim card – no such luck. So back to the hotel to re-arrange a few things in our suitcases before checking out at 11am. We took a shuttle to the pier which was a few mins drive away.




      Check in was fast and painless for us – we were on board before 12 which is perhaps the quickest ...
