“Honeymoon Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

My husband & I got married in WA State in Febr. of this year & decided to take a 7 day honeymoon cruise to the Caribbean departing from Fort Lauderdale but wanted to spend 3 days prior to departure visiting family & friends in the area! After reading reviews & going to the web site for the Grand Resort & Spa, I called to book a room for 3 nights & was very impressed with the entire booking process including the discounted summer (and airline) rate! Upon arrival, we had a tour of the entire premises, informed of the continental breakfast & the evening Happy Hour where we met other guests! Our Sister had called & reserved a bottle of champagne which awaited us in our room. We used the spa services also & couldn't have been more satisfied! Excellent accommodations & friendliest staff EVER! You'll be pleasantly surprised how great this place is & we will most definitely return for future visits! Highly Recommended!!!

Room Tip: We had a courtyard room on the ground floor & was very satisfied with the location as it was qui...

Another good visit to the Grand. People friendly and fun. Service from the staff is just right. Rooms are neat, clean and comfortable.

Definitely the place to stay when in Ft. Lauderdale. Price and services are just right.

Just returned from my 7th trip to the Grand and I always leave happy, refreshed, and looking forward to my next trip. The property is very well-maintained and the rooms are clean, spacious, and while the linens could use upgrading, it's still a great place to stay.
I took advantage of the spa on three occasions while I was there and can say that their services are well worth the money.

Room Tip: I've always stayed on the second floor facing the courtyard and like it back there!

We always stayed at the Royal Palm when we came up from Key West, but now that is all welcome we looked for a male only resort and found the Grand from recommendations from friends. We were not disappointed, our first had an issue that needed repair so they up graded us right away and were very apologetic. Would really recommend this all male guest house in Fort Laderdale.

Room Tip: If you want the clothing optional ask to stay in the back building.

It is so nice to once again be able to "sing" such high praises in regards to my most recent stay at The Grand, in Ft. Lauderdale. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left, we wanted for nothing! As always, the staff was so accommodating, our room - Penthouse 1, was FANTASTIC and the clientele was friendly! Often our friends say, "you should try so and so, but we don't and I am so glad." If you haven't stayed at The Grand, you should!! We can not wait to get back.

Fantastic staff. Poolside rooms in the front are converted apartments which makes them very spacious. Sociable guests. (Happy hour is a nice touch, although I prefer a bit more alcohol in my cocktails.) Great access to the beach. Much better than my last Fort Lauderdale visit.

My Partner and I have just had 2 great weeks at the Grand..Herb and his team..Bill, John, John again and Juan. et al were just great no problems at all.. very helpful and went out of there way to make our stay enjoyable. The room was spacious and well appointed. The housekeeping was first class..OK breakfast was fine, Bagels, Pastrird, Cereal, Fruit, Yogurt, hard boiled eggs, Juices, tea and coffee..take your pick..The pool area is well kept and the hot tub in the courtyard garden is a great place to chill out late evening...All said we would both recommend this highly, and would certainly stay here again...Thanks Guys for looking after us.. all the best..Mark and Joe..

Room Tip: It was our first stay..and from what we could see all the rooms were in good places..Pay your money...
