“Phenomenal experience...first rate!”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

From our initial phone contact to our final "good bys", Pineapple Point was an exceptional experience. While I am by nature cool to B & B's and inherently averse to most "gay friendly" hostelries, we will return to PP whenever the opportunity arises. The staff was responsive without being patronizing, the facilities charming and understated. We were able to escape the frenzy of the beaches and the stereotypical south Florida narcissism. The privacy and tranquility of PP enabled us to have an extraordinary and truly romantic extended weekend. Thank you guys for your outstanding hospitality and respect.

Room Tip: Get a suite of any sort. Well worth the dollars. And don't worry about not being on the beach...

Pineapple Point is the best gay guest house we have ever stayed in anywhere in the USA! The owners and the staff were fantastic - the best service we have ever experienced in any hotel or guest house anywhere in the USA. Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to make our stay as easy and comfortable as possible. The grounds are very green and well kept and it is very quiet and peaceful. There is a wide variety of accommodation and our suite was very well appointed in an old Florida style with a full kitchen. Breakfast and happy hour are very generously provided for. Pineapple Point may be slightly more expensive than the other gay guest houses but there is a reason for this - you get what you pay for and the quality was exceptional - you just cannot compare it to most of the other gay guest houses in Fort Lauderdale. Because the atmosphere is so convivial, this has an impact on the guests who we found to be very open and friendly too. We made a lot of friends! We enjoyed the pool area so much that we didn't bother going to the beach. In the evening you can walk to Las Olas or take a short drive to Wilton Manors - and the staff are very happy to sort out any restaurant reservations for you. This was the best holiday experience we have had in the USA for a long time and we will definitely be back!

Pineapple Point is a truly wonderful place - great for couples and singles of any age. When I travel I usually want to go places and see or do things. Not in this guesthouse. The compound of cottages, lush vegitation, helpful and smiling staff members, friendly guests, pool, hot tubs and other amenities made me completely content to be there - or not venture too far away.

This place is incredibly well-maintained! The whole property - outside and in - is gorgeous. The rooms (we stayed in two) are very comfortable and immaculate. The general tone of this place is friendly and relaxed.

Definitely worth visiting again!

My partner and I have been staying at Pineapple Point repeatedly since 2004, and the experience just gets better and better. And it started out pretty grand. The guest house, which caters exclusively to gay clientele, maintains easily the best service and classiest spirit of any gay guesthouse in Fort Lauderdale, if not the country. Innkeeper Phil Quatrone and his charming general manager Lincoln Pirkle set the tone for upscale but casual comfort, amiability and attentivieness. The staff is exceptionally well trained and makes everyone feel like family. You don't have to be a regular to get the welcome treatment. But over time the handsome cadre of Roberto, Jahir, Drew, Alex, John, Heather, Scott, Jeff, and forgive me if I missed someone, makes every visit feel like a homecoming. The continental breakfasts feature fresh fruit and a wide array of cereals and baked good. They are served in a room that promotes camaraderie and good conversation, enabling you to meet other guests easily. The evening happy hour is another great place to meet and enjoy the beautiful tropical pool area.
Rooms range from old Florida cottage style to contemporary deluxe. All are kept impeccably clean and well-serviced. A clothing optional swimming pool and two jacuzzis add to the sociability well into the morning hours. Top-flight masseurs are available in two on-site massage rooms and are highly recommended.
One of the best aspects of Pineapple Point is the clientele. Over the years, we have met incredibly interesting men, many of whom we see again and again, and have become good friends.
The negatives are few, but the small gym could use a couple of upgraded cardio machines. For a good workout, you need to take advantage of discounted rates at a nearby gym. In warmer and more humid months, mosquito repellent, which is available throughout the campus, is sometimes desirable.
Although Pineapple Point's secluded and tropical location near downtown is not on the beach, Fort Lauderdale's gay beach is only minutes away by car as are the bars and restaurants of Wilton Manors.
Pineapple Point is pricier than most other guesthouses in Fort Lauderdale, and for that reason it's clientele tends to be older and professional--but certainly not less spirited.

This is a special place. The atmosphere is peaceful, the grounds are lush and tropical, and the service is top notch. If you are so inclined, you can get by without a car as Las Olas is a 7 minute walk away and they provide bikes free of charge if you want to get to the beach.
