We spent four days at this hotel in October 2016. The price was right, the rooms were clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had enjoyable stay except for a minor disturbance , by one drunken couple. We reported it to the manager. He took care of the problem. We would stay there again.

I traveled for my job for 30 years and have NEVER written a review of a hotel/motel property until now. The great reviews we read are... More

We stayed from July 30th to Aug 6, it was our home away from home. This place had some umbrella and beach chairs you could take to the beach, which was a 5 min walk. The beach was nice and relaxing we were able to snorkel every day. Restaurants, shops, fishing pier and entertainment was also a 5 minute walk.... More

Located perfectly close to the beach and to the "strip". Huge rooms fully equipped but rather thin walls (can be noisy from time to time), but the closeness to the beach and to the "town centre" makes up for it. Nice pool area and complementary wi-fi.

We enjoyed this place. Staff very friendly and helpful. Older property but clean and maintained. Walking distance to beach, restaurants, and stores, but away from the bustle of the high rises. Kids, parents, and grandparents all agree, Blue Strawberry by the Sea is a wonderful place to stay in FLL.
