We visited in November 2014. The hotel is in a good location, a short walk to the beach and nearby restaurants. Staff were great. Very friendly, helpful and amenable. The pool is lovely. We would highly recommend and will be back.

Always a sweet location, now tended with style, class and attention to detail. Juan is a superman; never resting to ensure the beautiful grounds are ever immaculate. Edward and Keith made us feel welcome and particularly at leisure when delivering cool towels poolside. I look forward to returning again.

Once again, the Grand Palm Plaza provided an excellent vacation experience. Edward and his staff are accommodating and friendly. Juan is a superlative housekeeper-always thorough and detailed. The resort is very aware of their guest comfort; the furniture is freshly replaced, and the sheets and linens are always fresh and new. We are looking forward to three more visits NEXT... More

Clean, comfortable and quiet environment. Extremely accommodating and friendly staff. Guests respectful of others. Will definitely come back and recommend to others. I said it all in 165 characters but Trip Advisor insists on 200. Go figure.

My partner and I stayed at the hotel several times several years ago because we liked the cozy environment. We went back in September and were really pleased with the makeover the place had received. Nicely decorated and up to date but it still has that friendly feel we loved. It's the kind of place where it's impossible not to... More

I want to take this time to thank the staff at the Grand Palm Plaza for making this middle aged Gay male feel welcomed and excepted. I went to the plaza to take some time to relax and just enjoy life. The Plaza is well managed and well staffed. They all went over and above my expectations to make my... More

My partner and I celebrated our anniversary by staying here while spending the weekend in Fort Lauderdale. First let me tell you that the room was great, well it was more like an apartment. The place had a living room with flat screen TV, a full kitchen, and the bed room was large and comfortable also with flat screen TV.... More

What a gem! Not a cookie cutter HUGE hotel, but rather a small immaculate charmer. Great employees and service. Few blocks from beach, but was so relaxing I never made it to the beach. Also has a small heated pool. Only drawback- have to walk or drive to restaurants- none on this property.
