From the beach, it looks like the historic B Ocean Resort is a moored cruise ship. The nautical element continues with a nostalgic ship-themed bar featuring weekly live mermaid shows and a stellar seafood restaurant.

Built in 1956, this retro resort has hosted stars including Marilyn Monroe and Robert De Niro. Based on a private stretch of Fort Lauderdale Beach, it boasts a beautiful setting and some great amenities. There are two pools, including a beachfront infinity pool, and a spa offering rejuvenating therapies, including hot stone massages and aromatherapy. The acclaimed Naked Crab restaurant serves delicious fresh seafood and steaks, while Salty Siren is a more casual beachfront option. The Wreck Bar is decked out like an old ship and features both family-friendly and burlesque-style live mermaid shows at the weekend. The resort is set slightly away from the busier section of Fort Lauderdale Beach, but it’s only a few minutes along the sand to reach a medley of bars, shops and restaurants. A hop-on-hop-off water taxi stop close by stops off at the famous Las Olas Boulevard, a hub of shopping and dining.

Locally Paid Fees & Taxes: Expect to pay approximately $45 per room per night for hotel resort fees and local taxes.
