s Best Kept Secretfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Now for what turned out to be the 'jewel' of our trip, The Atlantic Sands [-]:
We arrived at 11:00 am (4 hours prior to check in time) not really expecting to be able to check in but just to familiarize ourselves with the area. We were graciously greeted and told that our suite would be ready for us in a few moments. This was our 5th and final day in southern Florida, and also our 5th and final hotel for our vacation. When we walked in, I was taken aback at how big each suite really was. They were very bright and incredibly CLEAN.
You first walk into a spacious livingroom with an air conditioner, sleeper sofa, TV, side tables, dining area and chairs. There is a foyer closet with beach chairs (I liked this attention to detail as most people don't pack one) to use on the beach, iron and ironing board. There is a full kitchen with refrigerator, sink, stove and cooking utensils. The bedroom was also equipped with a separate window air conditioner, dresser, closet, chair and very comfortable bed with crisp clean sheets. The bathroom was bright and fresh also. Much more space then we needed for our one night's stay, but perfect for someone looking for a place for a few days, a week, or even longer. The owners have decorated them in very tropical feeling colors and you can tell that cleanliness is a high priority with their property. I would think keeping this high standard could be a daunting task, considering how close you are to the ocean and all that sand, but they seem to handle it very well.
We had our own patio right outside our door, complete with table, chairs and umbrella. From our patio we could see across to the boardwalk and also the beach and ocean. It is literally just 30 feet or so to the boardwalk and beach. Dori and Gary, the owners, were very kind and gracious hosts. We mentioned we were going to have dinner at a certain place and Dori immediately remembered a courtesy coupon she had seen for our choice of restaurant, and insisted on getting it for us. They were very hospitable and I especially liked that when I had booked the reservation, I asked if they had any military discount as I had served in the Army Reserve and some hotels offer that. Dori told me they didn't have an official policy but that she would be happy to give me a discount in appreciation for my service.
On the way back home I asked my daughter, out of all 5 hotels that we stayed at, which would be her choice if she and her husband were to visit Southern Florida ... her vote (and mine) would go to Atlantic Sands.......with one change......we will stay longer next time.
Thanks Dori & Gary and thanks Trip Advisor. We are most grateful.

Atlantic Sands - cute as can be - very friendly!from A TripAdvisor Member
Ahhhhhh.. The sand and the Sun.from A TripAdvisor Member
The location is the best. Just about 30 steps to the sand. Lots of great restuarants and shopping, all within walking distance on the famous Broadwalk.
Our unit was clean, cool and comfortable. It was great to have your own full kitchen. Right outside our front door was an area to BBQ, and have friends over for games on the tables outside. There was shade if you wanted it. Sun to sunbathe, and even a hose to cool off.
I am always looking forward to staying at the Atlantic Sands, It has never disappointed me. Is it July yet?

The Best Sands are in Hollywoodfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The accomidations were impeccable which also was a reflection on the staff.
The rooms are cosey, clean and easy to keep that way since for me I hate to work on vacation doing housework. (that's usually what i'am trying to get away from). Anyway, great time.
We my family will be back.

Best family vacation in yearsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The accomadations were excellent and were very family oriented. The management was accomadating and went out of their way to insure that everything we needed was available. The location was just a short walk to the beach and water. The city cleans the beach daily and provides adequate lifegards and security personnel. In addition a short walk on the boardwalk in either direction provides a variety of excellent and reasonably priced reataurants. In addition, ,the city also provides family enteraiment a couple of times a week at the Hollywood Bandshell,which again ,is a short walking distance from the Atlantic Sands. We plan to return and spend our vacation in 2006 at the Atlantic Sands.
Top Local Tips for Hollywood
Coral Castle An hour down the road but you will enjoy. Do the Keys. Everyonw should drive to the keys at least once in thier lives
Parking The Atlantic Sands gives you a permit to park 3 streets North and 3 streets Souith of Hayes. You can usually get a very close space early in the morning or after 5 or 6 when people are leaving for the day.A lot of places on the boardwalk are within walking distance, but there are some nice bistro's downtown near the circle.
THINGS TO DO WE LIVE CLOSE BY AND LOVE COMING TO THE BEACH FOR GETAWAYS...THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING GOING ON ON HOLLYWOOD BEACH...LOTS OF EATING PLACES,(VERY CASUAL) LIVE ENTERTAINMENT AND WEEKEND STREET FAIRS AND CARNIVALS . HOLLYWOOD... ITS THE PLACE TO VISIT OVER AND OVER AGIN..
