We tried this resort as opposed to our normal choice. Apart from a couple of points we had nothing negative to say about this resort. We had a larger room on the upper floor. The room was very well equipped with fridge, microwave, coffee maker and a good choice of crockery and silverware and even glasses. We also had a... More

We stayed here for 7 nights during our recent trip to Florida, we have stayed in a few other guest houses in the area on previous trips and this one compares very favourably. My only complaint would be that the bathroom in our room had not been renovated fully, it was just a makeover. However for the rate was a... More

We locals have lots of choices when looking for a short stay just to get away for a day. The Grand Palm Plaza was excellent, a perfect day away for the two of us:great accommodations, great staff, great price, and a great location - can't be beat!

The staff, the attention to detail, the affordability - the whole package makes this place one of the best in town. Many try to be what Ed and his team do successfully time after time - here they really deliver. Without charging an arm and a leg.

I stayed at this facility about 5 years ago and since then it has been upgraded a quite a bit. Now with more modern feel with newer furniture in the rooms which help the overall look of the place. This is not a huge facility at all, it's small and charming. Does the place need some more work, sure, but... More

I have stayed here 3 times now and must admit it's my "go to" guesthouse in FT Lauuderdale. The thing that makes this place unique is the staff Edward the manager could not be more helpful, Keith, who took my initial reservation actually acted like he cared if we stayed here or not, As we all know sometimes staff can...

We have stayed at the Grand Palm Plaza prior to its recent remodel. A new coat of paint and some new furniture made the place look pretty nice. The staff were very friendly and the room nice and clean. Other than a plumbing hiccup and an ant problem that they alleviated, it was an enjoyable stay. I recommend staying on... More

Hi guys! Thanks for the perfect review. We are glad to hear you found our proximity to the gay beaches convenient as well as restaurants and night life. Our greatest accomplishment is when a guest comments that they were made to feel a home. That's the true definition of hospitality. Clean rooms and a recent renovation make us proud to... More
