Native Sun resort.
Has anybody stayed at the Native Sun resort lately at Lauderdale by the Sea?
I just got an exchange there for this summer and it looks like a nice place but was wondering if there was any firsthand experience here.
I stayed there in 2008...there is a thread on here someplace about it. (Maybe OY I don't remember.) Anyway, here are my impressions:
Older, small resort...motel conversion
Nicest employees you will ever meet
RIGHT on a beautiful beach
Most people were owners and they use their unit every year and have been coming for years...some are 2nd and 3rd generation. Really like a big family
Good part of Pompano...lots of stuff around there
Resort has a collection of sand toys that they have accumulated...everyone shares them...it's great.
No washer/dryer in unit...resort provides these carts and they make NOISE when people roll them down the halls. Seems little but it really is loud.
Resort does not supply beach towels if I recall...that was a little annoying
It's obviously not the Ritz Carlton
We loved it and would go back.
I don't remember about beach chairs
I don't believe that there was an elevator but I could be wrong
The layout is a horseshoe with the pool in the middle, so most units face the pool with the beach off to the side
There are grills, and I think that I remember shuffleboard
Beach is fantastic
Resort was full but never seemed crowded
Again, I would go back. I like the smaller family-type, older resorts too. At Native Sun, lots of people knew each other as they had been coming there the same week every year - kids, grandkids and all.
Native Sun is a very nice resort in Lauderdale by the Sea not Pompano Beach. It is right next door to the Sea Ranch restaurant and I think all of their units have a ocean view. Better check with management to see if day guests are allowed. The resort has lots of comfortable beach chairs but you have to drag them down closer to the water. Town ordinances prevent leaving them close to the water at night. No beach vendors in the area. The beach is very nice and if you are snorkler keep in mind thar LBTS is the shore diving capital of Florida. You can easly swim out to the first reef. Also, one block south of the pier is the new biorock reef restoration project - only one of its kind in the US. Again it is on the first reef which you can swim to easily.
TA must use the same GPS.

The post office has divided my town into two zip codes and the northern one is Pompano's. This has caused us a lot of problems. It would take an act of god to get the post office to change their system.
