The newly opened Beachwalk Resort has a number of things going for it. First, the lobby is just COOL- the European feel is palpable, as the hotel was designed by Pininfarina (Italian Design + Engineering) the designers of Ferrari, Maserati and more. Good news, the staff is prompt and friendly. The rooms are also European, with simple lines and a modern, minimalist feel…which I found relaxing. There is a nice bar/restaurant on property. We had a delicious Eggs Benedict for breakfast. Another bonus, the hotel (and it’s sleek pool) is ON the intracoastal just across from the beach (a 2 minute FREE ride from the hotel, or a nice 5 minute walk over the bridge) where you can enjoy a Beach Club atmosphere – lounge chairs & umbrellas for hotel guests, and dine at Hyde Beach Kitchen + Cocktails- which is EXCELLENT. It’s a great choice if you find yourself in Hallandale Beach!
