      Historical Traveler Reviews Kira-Mar Waterfront Villas & Docks Fort Lauderdale

      Awesome,Great find!

      from

      What a nice surprise! Great Management, very clean quiet spot. Nice pool to enjoy your continental breakfast.

      Would go back and stay at the resort for a week.

      Great Stay at Kira Mar!

      from

      Our family stayed at the Kira Mar Villas from 21 -24 January 2007, while I attended a nearby conference. Nice room - very clean and comfortable. Owners were very friendly and accomodating. Kids loved the pool. Nice quiet getaway near Las Olas shopping and not far from the beach. We will stay again when in Fort Lauderdale.

      Working Vacation

      from

      We have been vacationing in the Las Olas waterways for many years now and our normal spot did not have any vacancies due to the short notice of my trip. As I searched the internet for an alternate I found Kira-Mar :) I was absolutly pleased with the ammenities and with the friendliness of the staff, Nathalie and Reggie. It is such a cute and charming site that is convienient to Las Olas, the beach and with this being a working vacation it is also close to the interstate 95. I could not have been more pleased and wil definitely return in the future.

      Thanks for everything,

      Dom, Nathalie and Miss CoCo

      Paul, Karen, Carey-Ontario, CanadaExcellent!

      There is really nothing we could say in the negative about the Kira-Mar. It was a wonderful boutique style hotel with friendly and helpful management. The location is excellent being only a short walk to Las Olas Boulevard and a 15 minute walk to the beach, or catch the Sun Trolley. It is small and a good place to meet new friends or be on your own just to enjoy the quiet solitude of the lovely pool area which has comfortable lounges, a waterfall in the pool, flowers on the patio tables and floats in the pool, or overlook the beautiful boat docks and read or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. My husband and myself brought our adult niece along on this trip and she loved the retro decor of the room. She wanted to bring the pink stove home! The rooms are well supplied and extremely clean, even for a fussy person like myself. The continental breakfast is a great addition, especially if you don't want to dress up and go out for breakfast. Good coffee/tea, a variety of bagels/muffins/cereal etc. and fresh fruit and juices, just enough to get you started for a day of sightseeing or just lounging on the beach or pool. All in all, value for price, this is a lovely property.

      Great Accomadations

      from

      The rooms were incredible, very clean, the kitchen was really nice.

      The manager is very friendly, she makes you feel at home and is always available.

      I recommend it to everyone, either for a family trip or just for two.

      What a find!

      from

      We recently booked a couple of rooms at Kira-Mar for a girlfriends' reunion and couldn't be more pleased with our stay at the waterfront villas. The owner and staff were extremely accomodating and left us to want for nothing during our stay. The rooms are very clean, fresh and welcoming, with comfortable furnishings making a day in from the sun (only when it is absolutely necessary) a relaxing one. Continental breakfast was great and saved us from trekking out in the morning, but our fav part of the place has definitely got to be the pool in the courtyard. Sprawled across a floating pool mat, with the sound of a flowing overflow waterfall in the background is the best way to end a vacation day in Ft Lauderdale. Rave reviews from the girls for Kira-Mar. A million thanks for such a wonderful stay! We will be back for sure!

      Great Time

      from

      My daughter booked our stay. She thoroughly researches everything, so I expected everything to be satisfactory for my granddaughter's volleyball camp. Kira Mar is close enough to the Convention Center without that congested feeling. Even better than location, was the warmth and friendliness of everyone involved with our eleven -day stay. I enjoyed the clean lodging and continental breakfast. The pool and its surrounding were inviting when the weather permitted. I hope to come back again, real soon!

      Charming, Classic Florida-Style Lodging

      from

      The Kira-Mar has a wonderful, quiet, cozy feel. Great landscaping around the pool area. The location is easy walking distance from the action of the beach or the shops on Las Olas. This type of classic florida-style lodging is disappearing all too rapidly, and being replaced with cookie-cutter chain hotels with hyper-inflated room rates.

      There's lots of shaded seating by the pool, with Barbeques provided. There are docks on the canal behind the Kira-Mar, with slips available for short and long-term rental, if you're lucky enough to have a boat! ;-)

      Clean, clean, clean. Boutique, without the cost. The web description did not and should have mentioned it is on a quiet off street from the popular Las Olas Blvd. Where fine food at good to expensive prices can be found. The kitchen at the appartment was stocked with all the right equipment (including filters for the coffee and steak knives). The owners have taken great pains to restore a "retro" motel, to keep the essence of retro while having updated amenities. Another item not mentioned in the ad/hotel description is the v.c.r. in the room, ceiling fans, sea breezes through the windows and a remote controlled a/c unit. To enhance ones down time there is an absence of clocks. The breakfast was continental. The Floridian restaurant is nearby and serves great eggs benedict. Also nearby is primo shopping, the beach, and museum. The pool is heated, there are three gas grills with tools, dockage is also available, and the foliage creates an oasis atmosphere. The neighbors in the other units also provide respect for other visitors with not becoming loud, but are still friendly. Peace filled serenity can be found at this location. We will definately return.

      Great Place, Location, Hospitality

      from

      Stayed the weekend of the Air and Sea show, April 29th to May 2nd. Got a great rate from Hotels.com. There are 10 one bedroom apts, with a pool in the middle of the L shaped 2 story building. The pool area a lush and tropical, there is a table that seats 15 people for a breakfast they serve every morning till noon(complimentary). In addition it is locaterd on a canal, there are 8 boat slips.(More like yacht slips). It is approx 5 min walk to Las Olas Blvd, and a 15 minute walk to the beaches. A bike is necessary if you dont want to drive, but cabs are ALWAYS available as well. We had a great time...management was very accomodating and friendly.

      ... last night and the service was correspondingly bad. In fact after sitting at the bar for 10 minutes without being acknowledged I decided to have last drinks in my room.

      The only reason I went to Fort Lauderdale was to get to somewhere else, and on that basis it’s been the most pleasant surprise of this trip. Elegant, laid back, pretty and with a great selection of bars and restaurants, I really wished I could have spent an extra day or two here to see some more.

      ... br> We got up bright and early on that Wednesday and with the help of some very nice people we had met in Marathon, we unplugged, untied, battened down the hatches and pulled out the charts, electronics and binoculars. We bade our Marathon friends good by and set sail before the light of dawn. In all honesty, we actually did not mean to get off quite so early but our friends were already up and ready to help us so we felt obligated to leave. We were actually pleased that we might ...

      ... The drama was unfolding in my head. I think I watch too many crime shows. Then my own mini- drama began, Ann said her flight was delayed (she's flying delta - next terminal over) because of air traffic control issues. Our agents were saying we would be departing on time. Michael found out there was an incident at JFK - all flights inbound would be delayed to 3:30pm. The texts were flying back and forth.... But ultimately, we boarded and took off only ...

      But the highlight for our day was catching up with mates at the Rising Tide Bar, drinking, chatting etc. I'm going to really miss these guys. Carl and I think a week is way too short for a cruise and after the great time we have shared I think we are coming back to do another. Fingers ...

      ... as good due to the hotels location and friendly, efficient staff. We loaded up the rental car and made out way over to the Crowne Plaza Hotel where Hertz were located to drop it off. They provide a free shuttle bus to the port and we were to share it with a small Spanish speaking group who seemed to take the longest time to do the most simplest of actions. Little voice was in full swing again. "Get in the bus. It's quite easy. You move your legs and park your backsides ...
