          BeacH access

          Facility in general is poorly maintained and in desperate need of an upgrade. Poorly furnished and unclean kitchenette with dirty china. Broken blinds and curtains. Overpriced and misleading web-site. Serious misrepresentation of how the hotel really looks on the inside and outside. Huge mistake having booked there!

          It was close to where we had to be in Ft. Lauderdale and the bed was comfortable.

          It was in need of repair. It must have been beautiful in its heyday

          I love Lauderdale By the Sea; I have stayed at Villa Caprice off and on for the past 13 years. This was probably the last time as it has fallen into such disrepair.

          Villa Caprice has been neglected completely; the pool had sand and debris clogging the filter...the coconuts have not been removed from the trees around the pool so you are literally lying underneath potential skull-cracking killers. The wash down system for sandy feet at teh beach was inoperable. The room I was in was large but the floors were really dirty...I Had to wear shoes or flip flops all of the time. The front door had to be slammed really hard to close...the old air conditioner (window insert) was a joke as it ran but made an incredibly loud noise and both the fan and cooling system did not work at all...i unplugged it and opened the windows. The microwave made a loud humming/vibrating sound. I asked the management for a roll of paper towell but was told they don't supply paper towell even though my unit has a "kitchenette". I love the old place but it is a total dump...they have let it go over the years and have not put any money back into it. A real shame.

          This hotel has had some really bad reviews so we went into this with Really low expectations. Yes the building is old but the Rooms are big and they were clean. It is not perfect but for the Price and location we thought it was great! The Staff was nice too! Continental breakfast was lovely! And The pool was clean and kept! Hope this helps!

          This was a wonderfull get away location. Wonderfull view of the ocean & pool. Staff was very friendly & always asking if we were having a good time. I would recomend Villa Caprice. We had a wonderful stay. This is the place to be when you want to relax and getaway from life routine.

          Surrounding peace .

          All rooms are on ground floor or first floor, feels like you are staying in a house rather than one of the numerous high-rise hotels. Walk from the room straight into the garden and onto the beach, unlike the many hotels on 1A which claim to be 'by-the-sea'. Hotel is on a quiet back road away from the main road. Good, deep swimming pool. You can swim straight out from the beach to a rocky reef about 150m offshore (you can see a dark band on Google Earth), with reef fish, soft corals, nurse shark etc. Turtles nest on the beach. Staff were friendly. Hotel provided children's swimming pool floats, foam noodles, bodyboards etc for free. Nice, quiet, low-key place. Large rooms with kitchen. The hotel is obviously a little old (by American standards) and some things needs cosmetic repair, but everything worked fine.

          Air conditioning was noisy, worked well to cool the room but every time it came on it woke me during the night. Replacing with quieter units would be a good idea.

          the place is under restoration and the staff apologised for that straight away; i had read bad reviews after booking so i was worried. The place is a basic beach resort hotel like hundreds of others in florida but the ten paces to the beach, the big bed, the apartment feel, the friendly staff, and the peace of it make it so much more than that. It's not a polished,glitzy place at all,but it's nice and relaxing, clean, and more than functional.

          room right behind the breakfast bar, right next to the pool may be ideal for some but i felt that i couldn't open my curtains and enjoy the sunshine and sea view while maintaining any kind of privacy. Otherwise, the place is low-key but in a way i quite liked.

          The location is to Di for on the beach means on the beach .the sea is 30 feet from your bed

          The building is falling apart one third is cord end of because it is unsafe for guests The concrete is cracked because the steel work is corroded underneath. It is in need of a compleat makeover But could be a wonderfully destination .
