The Bahia Mar is conveniently located across the street from FT Lauderdale Beach and has an access walkway to get there. We were recognized as Diamond at arrival, upgraded to a partial ocean view room, and given free continental breakfast for our stay. The hotel seemed a bit dated in design but the room was nice and large. I don't remember if they advertised a balcony but the balcony is very small and you could only stand on it. No room for a chair. I would consider a large open air window rather than a balcony. The hotel pool was very nice with plenty of Lounge chairs and umbrellas. Nice Happy Hour specials at the pool cabana, half price apps and 3.50 for a 16 ounce beer. (or 10 for $35 ) Self Parking was $19 per day . The hotel is also conveniently located near Water Taxi stop 5.
