High-rise condos overlook white, sandy beaches lined with the obligatory palm trees. The offshore reef makes Pompano Beach, about halfway between Miami and West Palm Beach, a top destination for scuba divers. Beyond the beachfront, yachts and houseboats line the dark canals: you’re almost waiting for the Miami Vice theme tune to start playing. No matter in which direction you go from the best hotels to book in Pompano Beach, you’ll soon find a green space where you can people-watch and shoot the breeze.

1. Beachcomber Resort & Club, for romance on the beach

Want to get hitched on the beach? Bring the whole family to this beachfront hotel and stay in the villas and apartments, whilst those without kids can stay in the rooms and suites. Enjoy the private beach before a seafood dinner in the onsite restaurant overlooking the beach. Next up, dance to live music until you’re about to drop and start the next day with a leisurely brunch, with the kids splashing in the pool as the grownups nurse a recovery cocktail.

2. Tru by Hilton Pompano Beach Pier, for beach views

Across the street from Pompano Beach Pier with its resident pelicans and angling spots, this hotel delivers big on views. Go up to the rooftop early in the morning to catch the sunrise over the ocean. After the complimentary breakfast, take your dog for a stroll along the sand. Back at the hotel, have a dip in the heated pool and then head back up for watermelon mojitos at the rooftop bar.

3. Home2 Suites by Hilton Pompano Beach Pier, for easy water taxi access

Dual hotels in Pompano Beach aren’t very common. This one, however, is adjacent to Tru by Hilton Pompano Beach Pier and the hotels share the rooftop bar with its ocean views. Like its neighbor, this all-suite hotel is pet-friendly and makes a great base from which to explore Pompano Beach. There’s a water taxi service only a few minutes’ walk away and the off-leash Pompano Beach Dog Park is less than 10 minutes’ drive: you’ll even get to take your car across a drawbridge.

4. Costa Este Pompano Beach, for well-equipped kitchens

Want to feel less like a tourist and more like you live here year-round, even if you’re only spending a few days? This budget hotel has spacious rooms, some of which have their own kitchen. Of course, many hotel rooms come with kitchens but then you find yourself trying to make eggs without a spatula. Not here: here you have all the utensils you might need. Walk only a block to the beach, where there’s a watersports equipment rental service.

5. Residence Inn Fort Lauderdale Pompano Beach Central, for self-caterers

Whether you’re a digital nomad or in town for some sightseeing, you don’t want to miss out on beach time. This extended-stay hotel is right on the beach and only steps away from where you can rent a jet ski for some spray-drenched fun. At the end of a long day by the sea, take your suntanned, salty-skinned self and your pooch for some quality time at the dog park just a short way away. Then relax in the heated pool or trade travel tales with other guests around the firepit before fixing dinner in your fully equipped kitchen.

6. Sands Harbor Resort & Marina, for a plethora of watersports

Didn’t come to Pompano Beach just to laze on the beach all day? This resort hotel overlooking the marina offers all kinds of watersports: it’s not unusual to see guests getting scuba-diving lessons in the heated pool. Dock your yacht at the full-service marina and while it’s getting a go-over, have a bite to eat at one of the on-site restaurants: you know you want to try the Cheetos-crusted mahi-mahi. If you don’t have your own boat, the Friday night happy hour is your opportunity to befriend someone who does.

7. La Costa Beach Club Resort, for private beach access

When you’re pointing your camera towards the lighthouse at Hillsboro Inlet, you already have surf, sand and palm trees, so what more could you need for that perfect picture? The colorful kites of the kitesurfing beach next door, of course. This hotel has its own private beach too, as well as three pools – one of which is an indoor pool – and two hot tubs. Prefer your water with some marine life in it? Swim out to the reef for excellent snorkeling or diving.

8. Club Wyndham Sea Gardens, for multiple pools and hot tubs

Why would you book into a Pompano Beach hotel with one pool if you can have four, plus two hot tubs? This timeshare resort offers even more for the whole family to enjoy: tennis and volleyball courts, fitness center, fire pit, barbecue area, activities center, tiki bar and, of course, easy access to the beach. The lush gardens provide respite from the heat. When you’re hungry, you can grab something from the snack bar or pick up provisions from the on-site convenience store and cook dinner for all the family in the full kitchen in your suite.
