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

This was my first visit to Ft. Lauderdale and this hotel did not disappoint. The room was clean and smartly decorated. We had no problems with parking and the location was ideal. The hotel is located really close to the beach and within walking distance to a variety of restaurants, bars, and other stores. Our room had a microwave and... More

Although I only booked for one night as a segway from traveling, the Grand Palm Plaza left a wonderful impression on me due to its warm, inviting staff. The rooms are comfortable and decorated attractively in addition to the location of the resort which was central to anywhere a tourist in the Ft. Lauderdale/Wilton Manors area would want to go....

First this is not a typical Florida Beach Hotel. It is definitely LGBT. The service was excellent, the staff friendly, the rooms clean, and the pool really heated. They were kind enough to get our laundry done and helpful as per advice. The room were nicely decorated, and you had access to the facilities of the other establishments of the... More

Once again, my husband and I experienced a wonderful week at Grand Palm Plaza. The entire staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Special kudos to head housekeeper Juan for his promptness, thoroughness and personality; Nicholas and Luis also did a GREAT job. We have already booked our three week vacations for next Winter, escaping the harsh realities of Pennsylvania. We... More

We have returned to the Grand Palm Plaza for an extended stay. After being here a month, I have to say it is better than ever. Edward and Keith are exceptional. They do everything possible to make us feel like this is our home away from home. It is a beautiful property and very well maintained. The rooms and suites... More

Had a great 4 night stay at the Grand Palm hotel this past week. The setting was quiet, and serene, and the room very nice. Met some nice guys at the pool, and the garden area was clean, and well kept. The heated pool was perfect for the windy night dips we took. We will be back, Thanks again D&D

We were lucky enough to get down twice this winter to our "home away from home", The Grand Palm Plaza. We always enjoy our stay, and the guys always make us feel like family and friends, which we consider them in return. Thanks as always to Edward, Keith, Chun, and even that sassy "Ms." Juan! It's nice to still have... More
