A year ago I found the Alhambra Beach Resort Hotel on line and I received such a nice reply to my email I knew right away this was going to be a wonderful place to stay and I was right. Ernesto answered my first email and before long we were emailing back and forth and he always had answers to my questions. My sister and I were taking a 10 day cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale with Royal Caribbean and this hotel was the perfect location. It is only a few steps to the magnificent Fort Lauderdale Beach, around the corner from the wonderful Casablanca Cafe which offers a great menu and good service. There are all kinds of shops and sidewalk cafes and restaurants within a few blocks of the Alhambra. The hotel has 10 rooms with two large two bedroom suites with kitchen, dining area and living room. These units also have two bathrooms. This is the unit we had during our four day stay and it gave us plenty of room. The one bedroom units have lots of space, balcony and private bathrooms. Each morning Ernesto or Matt, who is one of the owners, prepares a great continental breakfast of juice, hot coffee, muffins, cereal, fruit, and a variety of English muffins and bagels for toasting. There is also a good supply of granola bars for a mid morning snack. Breakfast is included in the price.
The hotel is located on a beautiful property with lots of shade palm trees, flowering shrubs and lots of flowers. A heated pool surrounded by lounge chairs makes the property a wonderful place to relax.
The hotel is exceptionally clean and well kept. The grounds are constantly looked after and each night a cleaner arrives to make sure all the lawn furniture is prepared for the next day.
Alhambra Beach Resort is the place to stay if you want a quiet vacation but close to all the action which is only one city block away.
My husband and I made a trip this November to Ft. Lauderdale and of course Alhambra was the place to stay.
Again we went on a cruise and it is only a 10 minute taxi ride to Port Everglades and about 20 minutes to the airport...There are also wonderful shopping malls only a short drive or by the local bus which is 400 feet away. There is also the Hop On-Hop Off buss right at the corner near the Casablanca Cafe. There is also a stop by the sightseeing water taxi tour only a block away. You can buy your water taxi ticket at the Alhambra and spend the day on the intercostal waterways seeing the magnificent homes and yachts. The water taxi is also a hop on and hop off operation with plenty of restaurants and shops along the way.
The sunrise at the beach is magnificent and if you are up to it, you can join the dozens who walk and jog along the wide sidewalk near the beach. They usually start around 6:30 a.m. and you can join them any time of the day.
Alhambra is in a five star location and offers five star service. It is a true treasure. When you are out all day at the beach, sightseeing or shopping, coming back to the Alhambra is like coming home.
The Alhambra is a great place for us. As far as we are concerned it is a five star experience. We will be back again that is for sure.
