... going to be absolutely brutal. Time is teasing me..."you're almost there!! But hold on let me take FOREVER". Anyways, everything is ready to be packed -- I just need to decide how I will be dividing everything up between my suitcase and my duffel bag. I ended up having a lot more space than anticipated...which is perfect for me to bring back everything I buy while ...
... the environment, it did encourage another couple to hop off. We then completed the loop and headed back to the ship. It was wonderful to spend sometime just sitting on the shore where it was silent except for the waves lapping the shore and only seeing a few locals after 9 days on the ship with consistent noise and crowds of people. This was our last stop, tomorrow we are at sea all day and will need to pack and get organised for our next ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Caprice Lauderdale by the Sea
Treated like FAMILY at the V.C.
I walked the Galt Ocean Mile to discover 2-3 inns and resorts. We were treated like Family at V..C. last year and we hope to continue returning with our children and grandchild--who loved the place at 19 months old!!!!!!!!
My wife and I spent a long weekend in September at the Villa Caprice (We were there between hurricanes and apparently the only ones in the hotel). Upon entering our room, we were delighted to see a spotlessly clean room with a freshly cleaned smell. We stayed on the second floor in room a 1-bedroom apartment with a beautiful view of the ocean (and sunrises) from both the living/dining room and our bedroom. The fully equipped kitchen had every utensil needed to make anything from a cake to thanksgiving dinner. The bathroom with Caswell Massey amenities had more than enough towels, with extras under the sink. The grounds were immaculately groomed as well as the heated pool. They offer free parking, free beach towels, free newspaper and fresh fruit and coffee every morning. There are several great restaurants within walking distance of which I recommend the Village Grille 1st, Aruba 2nd, and Mullign's 3rd. I have stayed in many hotels in my life, but the Villa Caprice has to be one of the best I ever stayed and would highly recommend it to anyone.
My husband and I returned yesterday from a week at the Villa Caprice. After many trips to Ft Lauderdale, we decided to give Lauderdale-by-the-Sea a try as we though it would be quieter. We were so right! We researched a few properties in the area and were so lucky to pick the Villa Caprice (thanks to TripAdvisor). From the moment we walked in, we loved it. Vivian (from the office) was so pleasant to us when I called to make the arrangements, then called to add another room for more family to join us.
What a wonderful place! Thank you, thank you, Trip Advisor for the wonderful web site that allowed us to find this resort. My husband and I have just returned from a week in one of their one bedroom apartments.... just steps away from the pool and the ocean.
We found the Villa Caprice a comfortable, clean, spacious place to stay. We loved the convienence of staying close to Ft. Lauderdale, and loved that we could open our sliding glass doors and be steps away from the sea. The 2 bedrooms we very large, the beds were very comfortable. the living room and kitchen were perfect with everything you would need in the kitchen. The staff was there for anything you needed. They also were extremely nice and helpful. The pool was warm and clean. This was our first year there, and we will be back.
You would NOT be disappointed if you stayed here and in fact you will be very pleased, as we were
A great place
Great value, quality and people. A place to go back every year!
The 2 bedrooms appartments facing the ocean are 4*'s.
The Villa Caprice
We travel to Florida each year in August and have been staying at the Villa Caprice for 5 years. I highly recommend staying at this beautiful, clean, well kept establishment. Views are stunning. A classy yet unpretenious staff and owner keep us all satisfied and are very helpful.
found this place through tripadvisor.com. we stayed at sheraton yankee clipper 2 yrs ago, and villa caprice had them beat hands down.
April '98 new grandson born in Fort Lauderdale. Went down for a visit and stayed close by Villa Caprice in April. I asked my son to check the Villa Caprice for me as I wished to go down for Christmas. Stayed in a studio and it was great. I reserved 1 bedroom oceanfront apt for Christmas of '98 have been ever since. Time changed to mid fall as family moved up to Cape Cod but I still go down for vacation. The grounds are wonderful, staff is so accommodating and it's like heaven.
WOW! What a gem! The best service, the cleanest rooms, and the great location are all nothing compared to the phenomenal view. King bed, room frig, all the extras (even Caswell Massey amenities), and a spotless, spectacular oceanfront room for $100 a night just can not be beat. We have already rebooked for 2 more trips! There is a lawn (and I mean a lush, groomed expanse of real grass) between the hotel and the gates down to the beach where guests can sunbathe looking out at the ocean, or linger in the shade reading a book, in these really comfy padded lounge chairs. The Villa Caprice's beach is wide, white, and ocean is perfect. Even the pool deck - where morning coffee is served with fruit and newspapers - is clean and refreshing. The place is first class all the way. The only way I would not recommend The Villa Caprice is if it were the last room because then I would want it for my own family!
