“A fantastic little resort in a great location with great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

We stopped at the alhambra on the way down to the keys. After a long drive which included two unbelievable storms te welcome we received on arrival was amazing. Matt was great, gave us some beers and some water which went down a trsat after the drive. The room was very nice especially for the price and the hotel was right near the beach and a fantastic restaurant on the doorstep which we ate at on both nights. Fort Lauderdale is a vetting nice place, I suggest you take a walk downtown and check out the houses but be prepared for a very hot walk. Overall had a very nice stay and would have stayed longer no problem. Highly recommended and can see why is rated number 1.

Ernesto made us feel immediately welcome. Our room was not ready when we arrived bundled from the north, so he took our luggage, found us a place to change, and sent us straight to the spectacular beach. The room was impeccable, parking was easy, great location, simple, easy breakfasts, nice warm pool on the cooler January nights. We've stayed at the Pelican many times - also beautiful in its own right, but we won't be back there. Alhambra stole our hearts and our business. Can't wait to be back a few times this coming winter!!!

I stayed here for 3 nights with my daughter. We found the owners and staff very friendly and helpful. Beautifully located a couple of minutes walk to the beach. We booked here after reading favourable reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The grounds and the rooms were above and beyond reproach. Am trying to reserve for another visit in Jan. 13. Hope this will help to sway your decision for a nice quiet and affordable place to stay.

We loved our stay at the Alhambra Beach Resort despite Tropical Storm Isaac that wanted to spoil our fun we had a wonderful stay here. The hotel is super clean and the staff is wonderful. We loved our picture perfect room and the very tropical setting the hotel has. Its very easy going, friendly and cozy. We would highly recommend anyone to stay here you won’t go wrong, it’s right by the beach and many other great places to eat and party. ALL STARS HERE for ALHAMBRA see you soon again!!!!!!

Room Tip: Suites are great rooms :)

We had a great week in very hot humid August before Allure of the seas. The children all loved the Alhambra. Location location. The team are constantly cleaning and sorting the garden and patio area, they wash down and wipe every chair and sun bed every day.
Reading the reviews I did concern that it would be too personable but they have it just right.
If you need help or advice then they are there for you but otherwise they leave you alone.
All other reviews give accurate info. So I will not repeat but some basics:-

They provide good coffee and sugar, milk packets but tea is decaff,,bring t bags!
They provide toiletries but soap not great.
No black out curtains, bring eye cover if this is important to you.
Air con is great but fans in particular very noisy.
They clean pool area at all times with water spray....therefore water is all around...we got excessively bitten, take high deet protection and use at all times not just Dawn dusk.

Ask at reception if they have. Vouchers or coupons when you plan a trip. We heard about the 2 for 1 on water taxi from another family and would have missed it. We saved 60$ on that alone.

Rooms are large and spacious and well equipped. Fantastic immaculately clean BBQ, which Matt set up for us one evening. We splurged in Publix and this was our best night of the holiday!

Lovely to get back at night with the fairy lights on etc and having a late night swim before bed,,always just us, with a glass of wine or beer......certainly not possible at the Ritz Carlton!

Equally for us UK visitors with 19 & 20 yr olds, we were able to let them have a beer wine around the pool, which is just NOT possible at the major hotels.

Great place the whole family loved it, thanks to everyone.

Book a day Spa or treatment at the Ritz or Westin for a day pampering you get to use their pools etc for the day. It's still great to get home to the Alhambra.

We stayed here for four nights at the end of July. We always look for accommodation via Trip Advisor, so we were quite surprised to find that the No1 accommodation in Fort Lauderdale was reasonably priced. After looking at the Alhambra website and reading all the comments on Trip Advisor we decided to make a booking. Alhambra Beach Resort is excellent in every detail.
LOCATION - so near to the beach and places to eat and drink. We felt very safe and secure with the location and had to enter the resort via a locked gate into the courtyard.
ACCOMMODATION - comfortable in every way, we booked a hotel room on the upper floor with a balcony which overlooked the swimming pool and patio area.
FACILITIES - the swimming pool, patio area/garden were wonderful.
HOSPITALITY - we were made very welcome by Matt and Jimmy.
BREAKFAST - the breakfast arranged on the lower balcony was perfect, baked & bread items, cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit and coffee.
CLEANLINESS - exceptional.
EXTRAS - Towels, beach chairs and umbrellas provided free of charge.
Highly recommended and we would definitely stay again when visiting Fort Lauderdale.

Room Tip: We had a room on the front of the building overlooking the pool/patio area, these definitely had a b...

We had stayed two summers ago for a few days before our cruise. It was a fantastic stay in a warm and comfortable place. Felt like home, but someone else did all the cleaning. This was our second stay and Matt and Ernesto were great as usual. We decided to stay this year for a day before our cruise and one day after our cruise. The first day stay was great and they even arranged for a limo to our cruise at a great price.

When we returned from our cruise we found Mat waiting for us at the gate to the hotel with a very worried look on his face. He had been tracking a tropical storm that was coming and was very worried that we would not get out onto our flight the next day. Matt cleared out his office for us and gave us full use of his phones and computer to rearrange our flights and get home before the hurricane. Even though I made numerous calls (some long distance) he refused to take any compensation for the services provided and cancelled our night stay without any charges at all. With his help we made it home safe and sound.

If you are looking to stay at the Ritz Carlton, then you should book that hotel. If you want to stay at a place were they actually care about you then the Alhambra is the place.

Thank you again,
S.Silver
