Me and my boyfriend went to Palm Plaza resort last August for nearly 3 weeks and we had the best time. It's our second summer in a row that we spend at Palm Plaza and we want to go back again and again. The place is clean, affordable, nicely decorated. The atmosphere is laid back, there's an on-site gym, opened... More

We made a last minute trip to Fort Lauderdale and booked the Palm Plaza after reading a few recommendations. The staff members are friendly and helpful. Because of the small size of the resort, we got to know a number of the other guests and made a few friends in the process. We are planning a return visit!

My partner and I stayed at Plam Plaza Memorial weekend 2010 and had to check out due to a broken air condition in our room that Steve the manager could not have repaired until the following day. We only stayed one night of our 3 night booked stay. Steve told us that we could come back and stay for two... More

I told them that I did not remember them or recall the incident that supposedly happened over a year ago. Then they said that they had checked out... More

This gay B&B is located 3 minutes walk from the beach, and 10 minutes walk from restaurants and nightlife. Quiet and clean, we enjoyed both the room and amenities as well as the friendly and cooperative staff. The room we got was the basic one, and even though it's small in size, it was comfortable and had everything that we... More

This place was great, it really was. Stayed 5 nights over Memorial Day weekend, place is very well kept, landscapping is beautiful and it's simply... More
