Has anyone stayed at the Bahia Mar hotel in Fort Laudale? Looks like a great place close to the beach and at a great price. Thanks for the help.

I have not stayed there, but I just checked reviews of the hotel, and they were all excellent. I just read those from the five or six people whose stays were current (this month), and all of them thought it was a great place to stay.

Thanks for the info, it looks like a great location by the beach. We have stayed at the Fort Lauderdale Grande last cruise, but wanted something by the beach.

I am booked in the Fort Lauderdale Grande for an upcoming January cruise. Would you recommend it? I had also looked at the Bahai Mar and couldn't decide. By any chance did you take a water taxi out to the restaurants or shops? I am very curious as to how convenient that is. Any tips would be appreciated to maximize our Fort lauderdale time.

We used the water taxi while staying at the Grande, could not be easier to use. Stops under the 17th street bridge next to the Grande. Lots of stops with great places to eat. The water taxi stops at the Bahia Mar. Google fort lauderdale water taxi to see all the stops and places to eat The Fort Lauderdale Grande is a great hotel with the best view of the port. If there is a problem with the Grande, is the price of food and drinks, kind of on the high side. Hopes this helps, let me know if I can help with any other questions.

Thanks so much! That's great information. I think I'll google the water taxi now!
