Napoli Belmar Resort
Travel Blogs from Fort Lauderdale
I had a great sleep considering I had a belly full of food on board. Got myself organised, said my goodbyes to my host Nelson, who had been awesome, and headed to the bus stop to catch the first of 3 buses required to get me to my next destination, Fort Lauderdale. First bus picked me up just after I arrived and successfully delivered me to …
... was covered in salt from stem to stern and we were covered with bruises from head to toe but we made it. It had been a long, long day on Mother Ocean. It goes without saying we were hungry, exhausted and ready for an early night. And so, for maybe the second time ever, we went to bed without checking out our new harbor.
We slept like babies and awoke refreshed and eager to get a better look at our new surroundings. We were absolutely delighted with what we saw! In front of ...
... tour with some friends. They’re Queen’s Grill folks, so we won’t see very much of them. However, we are delightfully surprised when we see Conrad and Ellen boarding as “in transit” folks. They remember us as well and we have a wonderful reunion as we wait to check-in. Conrad and Ellen were our dinner compatriots on the QM2—we were united against a horrible couple from South Africa, who were so demanding ...
To be honest, we weren't in a rush to get off the cruise ship so delays were not a problem for us.
We heard over the PA system that too many people were in the terminal so departure from the ship was delayed until the area cleared up a bit. This was not a problem for us.
We knew we would not be able to check into the Starlite Hotel until the afternoon so we might as well enjoy our last moments on the cruise ship. We milked our final hours for all they were worth. lol
... miles, we finally found our room, dropped off our stuff, and headed to Deck 16 to wait to depart.
Our room was on Deck 12 so we had just a short elevator ride to deck 16. The first thing we did was walk up to the Mast Bar, got ourselves a cold drink, and enjoyed the beautiful day. It was such a relaxing feeling to be sitting there, with each other, with a drink and a cigarette, and knowing that we had to responsibilities, no work, and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Napoli Belmar Resort Fort Lauderdale
Did not stay!
i booked into this hotel after reading the mosty ok reviews on trip advisor.10 seconds after entering the room we realised what a teriible mistake we had made.The place was truely awfull ! We immediatly picked up our bags and left. How it managed to get any positve reviews at all beats me. Do not be fooled by these false postings it really is not a niceplace.Do not stay here.
My family and myself just returned from another great weekend in Florida. Even thou the weather was a bit cool this past weekend we still enjoyed our stay at Napoli Belmar. The heated pool saved the day! The hotel is very comfortable and is exactly what we look for when we go on vacation. The rooms are very clean and well kept. The beds are comfortable and allow you to get a good nights sleep. The rooms at Napoli Belmar surround the pool and deck area. It is very convienient to walk right out to the deck and pool area. The pool is surrounded by lounge chairs and there are some tables and chairs on the deck so you can enjoy having breakfast , lunch or dinner poolside. There is a BBQ available as well. My son gives the pool a BIG thumbs up. It is well maintained and kept at a nice warm temperature. The hotel is literally a one minute walk away from the beach, you can actually see the beach from the hotel. My wife and son actually stayed at the hotel about four years ago when our house in Canada was being built. I was obviously concerned for their safety as I remained back home for work. After visiting my family on one of those weekends I felt relieved. I can tell you that it is a safe place and a quiet place where everyone seems to respect eachother. Since that stay we have visited quite often . I have spoken to many people who have stayed there and they all seem to say that they return there every year. It is not uncommon to hear the guests comment on how comfortable it is there and how nice the owners are. This is a 'family run' business and there is something to be said for that. If you require anything to make your stay more comfortable you just ask and the owners go out of their way to provide you with it. Angela and her husband always go out of their way and are always willing to take the time wether it is pointing out good restaurants to eat at or good places to visit in Florida. I have brought a couple of my friends down for some weekend getaways and even they have commented on the friendliness of the owners and what a nice place to stay it is. I look forward to many more visits!
Nothing appealing about this older motel
This older motel provides basic accomodations at a cheap price. If all you require is a cheap room to sleep in, this might be okay for you. The room furnishings are old, and the bathroom looked like it hadn't been updated since the 50's. There is nothing fantastic about the pool area. It is a basic oblong small pool, with no landscaping.It is not "steps" from the beach-it is a couple of blocks. I would never go back there. I only wish I had taken pictures of the room and pool.
Great place - close to beach and downtown !
Whoever is looking for place at the beach in Ft Lauderdale must stay in Napoli Belmar !!! Very nice and private place with excellent service and management. Very very nice and clean rooms, with beautiful and private heated pool area. Just few steps from the beach. This was the second time we stayed there and for sure it is not the last time !!!
Tucked Away Just 2 Blocks from the Atlantic Ocean...You will find the fantastic Napoli-Belmar Resort.
Friendly and well placed
I stayed at the Napoli Belmar on my annual holiday in Ft Lauderdale and never looked back, I booked via the hotel website from the UK and as soon as I arrived I knew I'd made the right decision, the location is great (2 blocks from the beach, 10 mins walk to Beach place, 15 mins walk to the mall and 5 mins walk to the water bus stop), the rooms are spotless & well appointed and the owners are the most friendly & helpful people you will ever meet.
This is not a chain motel and its so much better for it, my only choice for Ft Lauderdale.
I try to spend some vacation time in Florida ever year and when I do; my favorite place to go is the Napoli Belmar Resort in Ft. Lauderdale Florida. The owners are terrific. They are very attentive and extremely accommodating. The resort has very nice efficiencies; clean, well kept and competitively priced. What I find terrific about this resort is that if you're the kind of person who likes to eat out and try different things; you don't need to go far for great restaurants. Everything you could want is only minutes away. But if you're like me and you like to prepare most of your own meals everything you need is right there, it's almost like a home away from home. I found myself needing some kitchenware once, rather than go out and purchase what I needed at the local grocery store, all I had to do was ask and I immediately received what I needed. It's all those little things that make a vacation great. Top that off with the two Barbecues' they maintain for their guests! What else is their?
Clean, Friendly, Convenient
Reserving a room through the Napoli Belmar's website was easy and I received a quick response from Angela, who also greeted me when I arrived.
My room was spotless and pleasant. The Mediterranean tile decor was both attractive and practical, giving the room a bright, clean sense. The beach is a short two block walk and several restaurants and attractions such as the popular Beach Plaza - containing numerous restaurants and shops - are within walking distance. Especially convenient for me as I did not have a car.
There are also two pools and a barbecue area on the premises.
A unique place to stay and make friends
a great place to stay and make friends that you will see again and again.
The Motel is very nice. We stayed there for 2,5 weeks and enjoyed the time there. We stayed in an apartment. It was very nice, clean, comfortable and quite. In the kitchen you can find whatever you nee. Napoli Belmar also offers a big barbecue place and washing machines. There are three nice pools, where you can relax. It is only a two-minutes walk to the warm-sandy beach. The owners are so helpfully and so nice. They helped us planning our tours and gave us important information four our trips discovering Fort Lauderdale and South Florida. The owners can also speak italian. A bus (no 11) is running every half hour into the city (1$) (the bus stopp is only a three-minutes walk far away). It is only a five minutes walk to the next small supermarket. I really can recommend it.!
