Today we did parent swap again. Feel good for going. Managing 5km comfortably now which is such a blessing. Then started sorting out our clothes for the Caribbean, not that we have many anyway but we are going to take only 1 suitcase. Then it was down to the pool for a swim. Amazing how Rorke was too short on Friday when we arrived but now he is tall enough to go on it, he is in his element. Then Rich and the kids played putt putt and I read in the sun. Then I played with ...

... We then walked to the Breakwater on Ocean Drive where a long table was set up for us. Mirka poured us all a glass of white wine and we were served a plate of ravioli in creamy sauce, which was very nice. Just around the corner is a hole in the wall coffee shop called David’s where we had espressos. These were served in small cups and loaded with sugar.
We then headed to Jerry’s Famous Deli, a beautiful old 1930’s diner, where we had a little cup ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Beachcomber Resort and Villas Pompano Beach
What happened to the beachcomber
We have been staying at the beachcomber for twelve years and could not believe the negative change in customer service, cleanliness and disrepair we observed. The pool was cracked with rusty ladders and missing tiles that cut my kids' foot. There was construction on the upper floors and the first floor common hallway was filthy. the elevators as well. There was a cigarette butt in the middle of the hallwayfor three consecutive days. the paint in the room was peeling.
construction workers used the guest elevator and partied near the pool outside our room after work. the worst aspect was the surly, almost nasty attitude of the woman in reservations who seemed to be the one in charge of the hotel. when you are on vacation you dont need that kind of aggrivation.
Loved the Beachcomber disliked treatment 11/03
Upon our arrival we were told that we could not stay at the hotel, we had made our reservations months ago. We had several rooms booked as a reunion was planned. We were not notified prior to our arrival and were very upset to be put into a hotel which did not meet our standards.
This caused people to cancel and also be put into another hotel, some got their rooms at the Beachcomber. A vacation we all looked foward to turned into a stressful event. We have stayed at the Beachcomber before and we were very happy with the accomodations and staff. We were extremely dissappointed with the treatment we received from the management. We stay at Best Western hotels frequently because they are usually so efficiently run. Sadly I can no longer say that.
I booked the reservation on-line a couple months ago, and 2 days later someone in Miami used my credit card number to order a laptop computer.
I arrived at the hotel late and had difficulty finding it. I checked into my room and noticed that they did not give me the 2 double beds I requested. When I went to the front desk to complain, I overheard other customers complaining about their broken air conditioner. I asked the front desk clerk if the air in all of the rooms was broken and she then informed me that they had not had air in the hotel for 3 hours. (keep in mind this is Pompano beach in October ~ 80 degrees) It shocked me that she checked me into the room and did not mention this. I immediately checked out and got a room at the Holiday Inn on Pompano Beach Blvd.
We just came home from a 5 night stay at the Beachcomber (7/18-7/23, 2003) Thanks to this website I am convinced our online reservations gave us priority lodging as we were told when checking in our "booking agent" qualified us for executive rooms. ..at only $76/night! Wow! We had an incredible room on the 7th floor accessed with a special elevator key which was immaculate with an awesome ocean view. The grounds were nothing short of lush and tropical and both swimming pools were well maintained. The location was close to many conveniences such as fishing and shopping and wonderful dining. We plan to return.
Nice quaint hotel
I stayed at the Beachcomber for two days and truly enjoyed my time. I chose to stay in the hotel portion: no ocean view, regular hotel room. The room was clean and I felt comfortable in the room. I am picky - I have been known to carefully inspect hotel sheets, not walk barefoot on hotel carpets and more. The hotel staff is very friendly. The pool is great with a conveniently located bar. Beachcomber residents have direct access to the beach and can rent cabanas, cushions etc. The hotel is a good sized quaint hotel with a good atmosphere. I am already planning my next trip there.
this is a wonderful hotel with a great view of the ocean and beautiful surrounding of the property. 2 pools ,tiki bar, putting green and gardens to walk through. the staff at this hotel are wonderful people they make sure your stay is very comfortable and if you need any extras they always seem to get what you want [extra towels late checkout extra keys] etc the food was great and on weekends they have a cookout for lunch with burgers hot dogs and chicken breast. For those who forget your beachtowels no problem they supply you with towels each day out at the pool. By the way each room comes with coffeemaker refrig and microwave. the beachfront efficiency was big enough for 4 people 2 beds 1 bath [the bathroom is in the hallway of the room which was nice so you had a little extra room to move around. all in all this is a great hotel and one i would highly recommend using again and again
Come and relax
Situated on 300 ft of pristine beach, this beautiful and laid back Ft. Lauderdale (Airport 10 mins) resort is a quiet beauty tucked away on Ocean Drive just far enough away from it all. Nightly piano bar, poolside BBQ lunch, friendly atmosphere and great ocean views keep my family coming back year after year. Tropical garden and well maintained grounds. Expect to relax here. Some rooms have kitchenettes and the pools have great views too.
We stayed here approximately 4 years ago and loved it. We booked the 2 bedroom villa. Only problem we had was the air conditioning. Didn't cool off the whole villa. The service was excellent. The food in the restaurant was excellent. We are going back in May. Hopefully, nothing has changed.Will review on my return.
The Beachcomber is an older property that has been well maintained. The rooms are modern and clean. The gardens, beach, and pool areas are beautiful and like the buildings are very well maintained. Service staff are polite and accommodating.
The restaurant is excellent. We have used this property twice and will use it again without hesitation. With so many properties today being cookie cutter plain, this place
