This is an interesting time to be a traveler in not only the United States but across the world. The threat of Covid-19 has pushed millions of sunseekers in their homes, and that’s completely understandable. My boyfriend and I chose to leave our home in Nashville and come down to The Worthington Resort in beautiful Ft. Lauderdale over Mothers Day Weekend. Despite the beach and restaurants being closed we were still treated as old friends the moment we walked through the red steel door. The resort was by no means lively but we had a stellar time regardless; simply lounging around the main pool. There is a palpable fear of traveling during the pandemic, however, if you keep your mask on, your hands washed, and your mind open then the staff at The Worthington Resort will welcome you (perhaps not with literal open arms) but kind smiles and fond memories. Thanks y’all

I can't say enough about how good this place is. I recently stayed at Worthington after most reservations had been canceled due to COVID-19, but they still served breakfast and made sure my room was serviced every day. They had deep-cleaned the room before I arrived. The staff was busy with repairs and improvements to the property, to ensure that we have a nice facility when we are there as guests in a future without COVID-19. As always, the place was spotless, and the pool area was pristine. If I had to "shelter-in-place", this was the place to do it, and I feel very fortunate. I really grew in my appreciation of how much a small business like this (situated among the "giant" hotels and resorts) depends on mutual loyalty to keep doing what they are doing. There is really nothing that can compare with the quality of care we get at the Worthington Resorts. One of the regular housekeepers there has been employed for as long as the current owner has been running the place. To me, that says something about the quality of people who are running the show, and how they treat people. This was my first time staying in the Worthington building (as opposed to Alcazar or Villa Venice). The room was fantastic, and we had the well-equipped kitchenette. If you are a Worthington veteran, come back as soon as this COVID-19 thing has run its course. If you have never stayed here, you need to give it a try. When life is "normal" again, my husband and I plan a visit the Worthington Resort ASAP.

This was our second visit to the Worthington, and we've already re-booked for next year! We were unfortunately there during the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Needless to say, some of the resort's amenities had to be shut down, but despite that, the staff couldn't have been more helpful, friendly and accommodating. Somehow, self-quarantining just seems a bit easier to do when you have sunny skies, palm trees, and 80 degree temperatures. Thanks for everything, guys. We're looking forward to returning again next winter!!

Brief stay, things started to get bad with Covid 19 towards the end of our stay. Lots of new rules in the city, and the beaches closed. The Worthington handled everything wonderful, and was really ahead of everything, instead of reacting to it!

All was fine except that the room was NOT soundproof. Could hear conversations in the next room loud and clear, and could even hear them urinating...down to the last drop. And the folks next door always tumbled in loudly at 3 am. The bath needs an exhaust to get the steam and odors out when needed. Staff was friendly/helpful except for one morning when one of the managers made a smart remark to me at breakfast - which was not appreciated. I try to be a forgiving person and so I'd go here again if I wanted an all gay, all nude experience. The guys were friendly.
