My partner and I travel to Fort Lauderdale two times a year and we always stay at the Grand Palm Plaza, an amazing clothing optional,gay men's boutique resort steps from the beach. From the minute you check in Edward Zielke, the manager makes you feel welcomed and taken care of. The rest of the staff Juan,Keith and Chung do everything... More

My spouse and I spent 2 different 5 & 4 nights recently at the Grand Palm Plaza Resort and we found it to be great place to relax and feel safe. We rented a Deluxe One bedroom unit topside with a king bed and full kitchen & living room; and we felt right at home!! The Manager, Ed Zielke and... More

Since North Beach Village offers a variety of options to choose from in Fort Lauderdale, we weren't sure which one we should select for our extended weekend. But the Grand Palm ended up being a near perfect fit. With only 15 rooms, all overlooking a very nicely landscaped courtyard (lush without being overgrown) patio, and pool, the atmosphere was cozy...

We are at the end of a three month stay at the Grand Palm Plaza. It has been perfect. It is a wonderful property. The landscaping is lush and pool area well maintained. It is a quiet property in a great location - close to beach and restaurants. Rooms and suites are comfortable and nicely appointed. The rooms are immaculate.... More

This was my second time at this location and I was as pleased the 2nd time as the first. Great location, great service. Some previous guests when they had checked out had left their beach chairs and beach umbrellas at the hotel. I asked Chun if they could loan them and it was not a problem (made sure to bring...

The bed is comfortable and the bedroom of my suite was quiet, so I slept well. The exterior of the property (including landscaping) looks tired. The suite had dirty and worn wall to wall carpet. The cabinetry was dirty. The bathroom is very out of date, but clean. The location is fantastic for proximity to the beach. The price was... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for 5 days and had an amazing time. We had a room on the 2nd floor which I hear is much better than the 1st floor. The whole staff was very accommodating and friendly, which includes Juan, the maintenance man. The other occupants of the hotel were very nice as well, which added to our... More

I just returned home after a short stay at Grand Palm Plaza Resort in Fort Lauderdale. It was a very pleasurable experience. The Managers Edward Zielke G.M. and Keith Brown, Guest Services Manager, were most attentive and accommodating. The premises and rooms were very neat and tidy. I highly recommend it as a Gay resort if you are in the... More

First experience at an all gay male hotel, and it was a winner. It is a small place, so the staff--who are VERY friendly and helpful--get to know you a bit. We cooked out on the grill and shared with other guests. The pool is great for tanning, hanging out, and people watching. It's a great atmosphere and a great... More
