Hallandale Beach Condo
3 Bedrooms / 3 Bathrooms / Sleeps 6
Luxury building, lovely condo, exceptional views
November 1, 2011
My husband, my mother and I recently returned from our stay in this beautiful Hallandale Beach Club condominium. We arrived to find the unit exactly as pictured. Two full walls of the living room provide ceiling to floor views of the ocean. The balcony is enormous and wraps around the corner of the building allowing access from two of the bedrooms as well as the living and dining areas. All three bedrooms included their own ensuite and flat screen TVs. There was more than enough room for the three of us and we never felt crowded. The building feels like a luxury hotel. Valet service greeted our car as we arrived, the valet attendants remembered our car and unit number every time we collected the car. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to get to know us (ensuring that a delivery was received by my husband). The pool was always staffed by at least three attendants as well as security staff. The fitness centre has to be seen to be believed - simply amazing windows facing the ocean. There is also a spa on site where I received a manicure and pedicure for a very reasonable price ($42 USD, including 20% gratuity). The pools are stunning, I particularly appreciated that the large heated lap pool and two spa pools were for adults only. Families with children will find ample pool and spa space at the adjacent tower. This building takes security SERIOUSLY. Photo ID is issued to all residents and must be used to enter the tower, use the elevators and be presented at the pool and beach areas. A 'wrist band' policy is in place, whereby each resident must go to the front desk to obtain a dated wristband to use the pool, beach and fitness facilities. Pool attendants and security approached me every time I used the pool to check my ID and wristband, ensuring that I was registered with the building. Some residents told me that this policy is too strictly enforced; however, I appreciated the security and felt safe at all times, even at night. The unit included all items needed for cooking (including a well stocked spice rack), along with towels and beach towels. We purchased our own items such as soap, laundry detergent and paper products. This is the first time we have rented a vacation condo (we have previously stayed at the Diplomat and Hollywood Marriott) and we would most certainly would stay here again.
