Las Olas Beach Reviews & Ratings
Close to night life, facilities adequate,but minimal, lots of construction work at this time. Close to night life, bus rider to super market. Rates very reasonable, staff friendly
Great little spot under the bridge. Once you get used to the bridge signalling opening and closing it is surprisingly quiet. Decent clean washrooms and showers. Nearby (short walk) to the Fort Lauderdale strip, but you have to wind your way through a major construction zone. There is a super liquor store within 100m. Ice, lemons and other well curated items and a great selection of wine, beer and liquor.
The current can be strong. Docks are concrete and thus strong. There is construction going on so it’s a walk to the reserved lot and dock house. Area is Very safe and right near beach. Everyone who works there is great. Very experienced, kind, and they know boat. Jim, Tim, and Bob all helped as much as they could to make me a more confident and safe at docking. I hate docking. I have a new to me full keel sailboat that flies sideways in a current and is very difficult to steer backwards in wind alone. Bob stood out in a strong and sudden windy lighting rainstorm giving me guidance on how to get the boat in dock. Eventually docked at the T head and tied up. (I was soaked, shaken, and beat—-all my crew got off the boat ASAP and left with no thought of helping. It was very stressful and bob helped me not only in the lightening and rain but even after and offered to move the boat in the calm after the storm with ropes into my slip. People there are nice. An experienced sailboat captain went with me and talked me through as I docked. And bob did lines again. Jim stood on dock in sweltering heat calmly and basically told me how to turn and throttle to get the boat in the slip and he walked/tugged the boat into the slip. (“Don’t go any faster then you would hit the dock”). He calmly states don’t worry I’m not going to let you hit the dock. He encourages me and lectures me when not docking to take as many approaches as needed. If no one gets hurt and the boat doesn’t get damaged then it was successful. Tim met me at the dock during a non slack tide moment with some wind as I returned from the dry tortugas (my 1st multi-day trip). I was exhausted and had great difficulty as usual with multiple attempts. Finally with guidance, some luck, the boat approached at about 45 degrees to the dock and a line was thrown to Tim. He wrapped th line and pulled th boat in. And yes, I kinda left the boat in gear. And Tim held tight and telling me do more bow thruster. More more more. I ran around trying to not hit and push off stuff....no damage and successful. In short. I really really really hate docking and they always help and tell me to be more confident etc. they are great and I always always always alert them to my plans and they will give me a talk through when I leave and be at the dock when I return. I’m sorry for any bad weather events or making you strain and sweat. Thanks.
Amazing place. Love the water taxi.
Great Spot for my clients last night!
