What Our Customers are Saying

Before you leave, Maria will be part of your family. Just spent five days at Dee Jays. Wife had graduated from Keiser U. . We decided not too rent a car but we did use Uber to get to Keiser a couple of times. We needed the exercise and most things we was within a .5 to 1 mile walk. The one bedroom apartment was huge. Beds were great. Apartment was clean. Beach across the street. Quite place were I could go out anytime without trouble. Now, as far as Maria , I feel like I made a new friend. I could ask her anything. She is wonderful. If you want to come to the beach and have a home away from home, COME HERE. thank You Maria.

Great location. Love the location across the street from the beach on quiet El Mar Drive and within walking distance of many shops, bars and restaurants. Hotel is older but well maintained and clean. I had a 1 BR apt with a full kitchen and ample closet space. Furniture is a mish mash assortment. Nothing fancy and very basic. Nice small pool in backyard. My main complaint was the bathroom was in need of an update, especially the tub and shower.

DEE JAY’S BEACH RESORT – ALWAYS THE BEST SERVICE. Just spent a week in Ft. Lauderdale by the Sea. Great location for shopping, fantastic restaurants and great beaches. My husband and I always stay at Dee Jay’s Beach Resort. The GREAT Staff (Maria and Marissa) make our vacation stay very comfortable and enjoyable. Sarah & Wes

AAA Location – Great Staff ! The Dee Jay Beach Resort is located in an “excellent location”, walking distance to restaurants and shops, and a few steps to the beach.  One has to agree it is an old establishment, however very well managed with a friendly staff. The Property Manager Maria, is an outstanding and remarkable individual. She goes out of her way to satisfy her guests.  She gives you a good feeling of wanting to come back, and most vacationers are repeats from years prior.  We’ve vacationed at the Dee Jay several winters now and always look forward to returning.

Love Dee Jay’s…Keep coming back! Last month visited Ft. Lauderdale by the Sea area. Stayed at Dee Jay’s Beach Resort. Always a pleasure to see Maria & staff. Besides perfect weather, many activities in this area, restaurants and shopping always great. Sarah & Wes

Just Like Home, and More! This was my first time staying at the Dee Jay Resort, and what a pleasant surprise! The hotel is right across the street from the ocean, there’s free parking, lots of patio seating, Spacious rooms with a full-sized kitchenette including, fridge, stove, microwave, sink, dishes, coffee maker, etc… It’s a lot bigger than first glance, and includes four separate buildings with a small pool in the middle. Each room is actually like a small apartment which explains why a few of the guests I spoke with had extended their stays. All of the guests were so friendly! Was like a small community.

This is a home style, friendly establishment, and definitely not a chain hotel. The manager, Mary, is always onsite to help you with any needs.
Emphasis on NOT a chain hotel, so don’t expect the regular amenities and cookie cutter decorations and furnishings. My room was decorated with vintage paintings. The bathroom was obviously original to the building(60’s, give or take a decade?). And it showed. Fully functional, but not what you’d get with a chain. The kitchen had been renovated/modernized, and the tile flooring was definitely newer. Like any older building on the beach, you’re going to have some moisture issues. The window A/C did a great job, though, and came with a convenient remote control.

Did I mention Location Location Location?!?! Right across the street from the beach and a 15 minute stroll to great restaurants, shops, and outdoor events. There’s also a trolley that will take you to the grocery store(stock your kitchenette!). You won’t need a car. I didn’t use my car The whole time I was here.
Overall, you won’t find a better value than this home style hotel. With super low rates and friendly atmosphere, you’ll be happy you chose the Dee Jay Resort.

This was our second year at the Dee Jay. We love it here, so convenient. Clean one bed room apartment with full kitchen and ocean view. Across the street from the beach. Walking distance to awesome restaurants and shops, Publix, laundry – we seldom used our car. Marisa and Maria are such wonderful hosts, always smiling and so accommodating. We will be back next year! 🙂

We love the dee jay! Ever since we had to change motels due to renovations we dont ever wanna leave! This our 5th year! Big clean rooms with a great location for the low prices! Even for a family of 11!!
