This hotel is one of the best hotels I have stayed in while vacationing in Fort Lauderdale. I was there in late January and I went back on April 30 to May 7, 2013. The staff is so wonderful and helpful. they go all out to make your stay very enjoyable, starting with the front desks employees to the head superivisor Joel who is very friendly and prestigious as well as his GM partner Peter. Alfredo (Freddy)- head maintenance who is always running around to make sure the pool and the surrounding are well maintain and very competence in his repairs work- his is such a nice guy to talk to. The scenery of this hotel makes you feel like you are in a tropical island with all the palms trees surrounding you. Very clean and has a wonderful ambiance with all the friendly employees. I give this hotel a big thumbs up and would highly suggest this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay while on vacation in Fort Lauderdale.
