I just wanted to say what a wonderful time I had staying at the Grand Palm Plaza. Since I stayed their before the renovations were made , it's like night and day. The place is 100% percent improved. The room was so clean and the service was excellent. The staff Edward, Keith ,Chun and Juan who cleaned my room, were... More

The New Grand Palm Plaza looks great after the remodeling, but still the same quiet, cozy place. The new staff Keith, Chung and Juan were just perfect. They served you in the afternoon frozen grapes and cold lavender towels on the pool and on Saturday an exotic drink. Manager is Edward, who was already two years ago on the old... More

I had stayed here in the past with the old owners, the hotel was subsequently upgraded but with still it's 50's charm. The service was outstanding, One could not force how pleasant and welcoming Edward Chun and Keith are, it's in their nature. The housekeeper Juan was very thorough and accommodating. This property is part of a group of properties... More

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...
