My husband and I visited The Grand Resort and Spa earlier this month for the first time and already want to return. The pool and resort are very clean, the staff members are wonderful, and we met other guests that made our time very enjoyable. The resort is very central and we walked all over to get to restaurants, beaches and shops. We both had massages at the spa and were very impressed with Robert. He has excellent pressure, is very professional and polite. We highly recommend staying at The Grand Resort and Spa.

We just got back from 5 days of pure relaxation and bliss. We had booked this trip in Nov, but had to postpone due to rising COVID numbers in Florida. Staff were friendly and accomodating about holding our deposit until we could rebook. This was our second trip to the Grand, and I already can't wait to go back. They take COVID preparation seriously. Buffet breakfast is no longer available, but they have a nice list of complimentary breakfast items you can ask for at the desk (including terrific coffee!). The Fitness center is available for one person at a time and is cleaned after each use. The staff is just so friendly and accomodating. It was a windy week, so we found ourselves mostly relaxing in the back courtyard, rather than walking the two blocks to the beach. That little courtyard has become one of my favorite places in the world. But when you are ready for the beach, they have chairs and umbrellas available to borrow. We met some very nice guys during our stay, often at a little end-of-day soak in the hot tub. Guests ranged from their 20s to their 70s. The whole resort is clothing optional, which made me happy, but lots of guys kept their suits on, so there was no sense of pressure there. Tons of great restaurants within walking distance and the reviews of Robert the massage therapist were spot on. It's beginning to show its age in just a couple of places (our TV didn't always work properly), but that didn't prevent us from having a magical time. Already dreaming of a return visit.

This visit, Robert provided an 80-minute Swedish massage, which was serene, comfortable, and soothing. His therapy included strokes running the gamut of lengths with appropriate pressure applied during each phase of the session. His friendly and professional demeanor rounded out a perfect combination of skills. No surprise that he is literally award winning...in the Best Massage Therapist for the Grand in SFGN's Best of 2019. Congratulations, Robert! And, thank you for a wonderful massage.

I can't say enough good things about the Grand. The staff was incredibly responsive and friendly. We came during the pandemic and everything was very safe--mask rules were respected, everything was very clean etc. The pool was so much fun. The resort itself is centrally located and very close to the beach, restaurants etc. It's also just a short uber away to Wilton Manors, where most of the gay scene is. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Fort Lauderdale!
