Recently my family (consisting of five including my husband, sister, daughter in law and 12 year old granddaughter) visited Fort Lauderdale and stayed at the Alhambra Beach Resort on Alhambra Street and only 400 feet from beautiful Ft. Lauderdale Beach.
This was not our first stay at this wonderful resort. It has become our second home when we go to Ft. Lauderdale for a visit and include a cruise out of Port Everglades. This resort owned and operated by Matt with a great crew of helpers including another Matt, Eddie and Daisy in the office, Bill, and also Gabbie who keeps the rooms in A-1 shape are great people to visit. They cannot do enough to help you. They find you the best taxi drivers, give you directions, make your phone calls finding out information, print off your boarding passes....they do it all.
The resort is wonderful. It has a private pool, lovely garden area, outside tables and umbrellas and lots of chairs and lounges for sun bathing.
The rooms are clean and spacious each having a private bathroom. Some units have kitchens while larger two bedroom units have a dining room and living room....Each morning Matt prepares everything for breakfast which consists of hot coffee, orange juice, cereal, milk, toast and English muffins, Danish and an assortment of muffins. There is a good variety to help you start your day. Also a huge bowl of fresh fruit is available each and every morning.
Lots of clean beach towels, umbrellas and chairs to take down to Ft. Lauderdale Beach and another added feature is a place to leave your extra luggage containing winter clothing while you go away on your cruise.
It is like being home.
We had a great five day stay this time. While there we went to the beach, visited a number of nearby malls, walked over to the Ritz Carlton for lunch at their pool deck and visited the Casablanca Restaurant several times...The bus stop is only two minutes from the resort and the Hop On Trolly is right at the corner. The Alhambra is located in a very convenient location.
There is a variety of beach wear shops. a drug store, sidewalk and waterside restaurants all within minutes of the Alhambra Beach Resort.
The water taxi stop which travels the inland waterways is only a few blocks away. This too is a hop on and hop off taxi service along the waterways in Ft. Lauderdale. The Alhambra Beach Resort has received lots of recognition over the years from travel sites stating this is the place to stay.
We had a great visit and are already planning another visit in 2013.
