There are many reasons to travel to Fort Lauderdale. And no matter which of those – beaches, shopping, nightlife, dining, sightseeing – motivates your trip to “The Venice of America,” the B Ocean Resort provides an exceptional place to stay and savor your experience.
Let’s start with the location. The B Ocean can be found right in the heart of the city, just blocks from the phenomenon of Las Olas Blvd., known to many as the “Rodeo Drive” of the East Coast. It’s also across the street from the dock where you can board the Jungle Queen for a day cruise – and check out the multi-million homes that flank the harbor. The resort also provides free bicycles for guests to take in the surrounding sights.
Then there are the rooms. Each of the 487 rooms at the B Ocean is outfitted with The Blissful Bed, a dreamlike place to rest your head for an incredible night’s sleep (the plush sea turtle is just right for snuggling). You’ll also “B Treated” to an assortment of sweet and savory Each room also has a 50” flat screen TV, as well as useful amenities (free Wi-Fi, Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator, etc.) that help make it convenient and efficient to plan your day.
As part of the fun, guests can make a splash at one of the two outdoor pools our stretch out on the resort’s private beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available for rental.
When you’re hungry, be sure to stop by the Beach Bar & Grill – an exclusive enclave in which to soak in the beauty and inspiration of the pristine waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The restaurant offers a wide variety of palate-pleasing options from an inspired American-Caribbean menu, from refreshing tropical drinks to mouth-watering sandwiches and specialty burgers, as well as a selection of healthier fare.
Another memorable spot to grab a bite – or meet friends for a drink – is the Wreck Bar. This historic gathering place (which film fans will recognize as a setting in the movie “Analyze This”) has an assortment of casual bites and tropical drinks, served in a relaxed atmosphere with a nautical theme. It’s a terrific, friendly spot to plan an evening… or spend one.
And let’s not forget the mermaids. Every Friday and Saturday evening, visitors to the Wreck Bar are treated to a mermaid show, which they can watch through porthole windows (the Wreck Bar is one of only two such establishments in the United States) into one of the hotel’s pools. These living legends delight and thrill audiences with their choreographed swim routines.
The B Ocean continues to expand as it undergoes renovation – additional food choices and a deluxe spa are coming soon – but it never ceases to provide world-class, family-friendly accommodations for vacationers, business travelers and anyone just passing through.
