On a quick Whatsapp discussion earlier, we chose to do a more relaxing “hang-out and chat” weekend as opposed to a structured-touristy weekend. As a result, I am posting places and things to do within walking distance of Embassy Suites with one or two things for those who want more adventure.

Please find below links to places and things to do close to Embassy Suites where we will be staying. Importantly, the links for booking your hotel room is below, also, airport details.


see photos and amenities on their website: https://www.hilton.com/en/hotels/deefles-embassy-suites-deerfield-beach-resort-and-spa/



Fitness Center

Meeting Room

Complimentary breakfast and evening drinks/cocktails

SHAREABLE rooms. Each room held for us has two beds, two baths, and a pull-out sofa. So we can have 3 people in a room if desired.

AND OF COURSE GREAT BEACH VIEWS WITH BOARDWALK (we can pretend that we are on the seawall LOL)

PRIVATE CATERING TO CONSIDER outside of catering at the hotel:

There are several tiki-style cabanas along the ‘boardwalk’, so, I can arrange for a little food catering for the first night/Friday for those who will be arriving that night.

I also know a Guyanese masseuse and I can arrange for a group rate.

Also, there is a beach yoga teacher whom we can ask to arrange private class(es) for us.


Most of the shopping within walking distance is touristy but many dining choices. These two are good for dinner and have music and dancing later in the evening:



If you are looking for something more adventurous

Thank you again for your inquiry this week and for considering the Embassy Suites Deerfield Beach Resort & Spa for Ladies Retreat in May 2023.

We can offer a small block of up to 10 rooms per night as a courtesy block with no financial obligation to you.  Your guests would have up until 45 days in advance of your group arrival date to confirm a reservation into group block.  At the 45day cut-off, any rooms in the block that have not been reserved will be placed back into general hotel inventory.  Any group room requests after this date may not be available at the original group rate.  If the initial group block fills up, we can look at the possibility of adding additional rooms into the group block, but cannot guarantee the rooms will be at the original group rates quoted.   We would provide a HILTONLINK that you can post to a website or send to your guests.  The link will take them directly to your personalized booking page where they will confirm reservations with their credit cards at that point.   We would also offer the group rate 3 days prior and 3 days after group block dates to accommodate anyone that would like to stay longer, based on availability.
