The location is perfect...situated half way between Dutura and Hibiscus (both excellent shore dive entry points). Beach access on both Dutura and Hibiscus has a covered area to set up your gear and a hose to rinse equipment... More

What a perfect find! Close to the beach and restaurants, comfortable and spacious room, most importantly - very clean! Owners and staff are great. Place is undergoing some renos, fingers crossed I can get away next spring to stay here again and see some of the updates.

Finding a reasonably priced place to stay for a couple of nights in season in the Ft. Lauderdale area is not an easy task, especially if you want to be close to the ocean. Horizon-By-The-Sea, in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, is just one block from the beach and a three-walk block to Anglin's Fishing Pier (admission $2.00) one of only four fishing piers... More
