Fodor's Review

Husband and wife team Cristie and Marc Furth run this quaint Mexican-themed motel across the street from Lauderdale-by-the-Sea's family-friendly beaches. Lattice fences, gurgling fountains, and gardens of cacti and impatiens provide privacy around the brick patio and heated pool. A palm-fringed Mexican-hacienda look predominates, with guest quarters boasting hand-painted and stenciled furnishings, and terra-cotta tiles.

Charming & Affordable

We just returned from Lauderdale By The Sea where we stayed at the Blue Seas Courtyard. The accomedations are charming and affordable. We stayed in one of the 1 bedroom apts. and loved it. Marc and Cristie, the owners, are friendly, warm and welcoming. The courtyard pool is very pretty and a great place to realx after a day on the beach. We recommend Blue Seas for anyone wanting a comfortable and affordable resort stay in Lauderdale By The Seas.
