Try it!It is a very nice hotel with good infrastructure and very friendly staff. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The only thing is, that the location is quite far away from Wilton Manors and you have to drive yourself or take a taxi.

Room Tip: I hat a standard room (211) which was very spacious, nice, clean and comfortable. Absolutely all you...

Wow....well we arrived after hrs and we informed by email how to collect our keys to get in. That was easy. Once in...the property looked out of this world! Pool was lite up, hunky men in the Spa to greet us, then we found our room. Wow! I've worked in a few 5* properties and this place would chew them up and spit them out! For a gay resort I was expecting dirt under the toilet lid, mould, perhaps even a torn towel...BUT no! Downside for me is I should've got up early to view their continental b'fast, but I didn't! Yep b'fast included in the room rate. Getting around Fort Lauderdale is easy, heaps to perv on too. If ever back .... yes I would book there again, no hesitation.

This is a great place for the gay traveler to stay. 66 rooms, 3 pools and 2 hot tubs mean there will be a great crowd. Yet still, you can find a quiet corner in either of the 3 connected resorts. I like meeting people and so this is why I stay there. The place is immaculate inside and out, the staff wonderful, the setting very beautiful. It is located just a very short walk to the beach and a short walk from the gay Sebastian beach. Over the last 20 years, I've stayed at many guest houses in that area. This is my first choice currently.

Room Tip: There's no bad location for a room here. Even if you face the pool on the first level, it is no...

This hotel is one of three that guests can use pools and hot tubs. The super friendly owners had taken 3 dated properties and updated them to cater to their clientele. Everything was clean and beautifully landscaped. The staff always friendly and helpful. Nice continental breakfast daily and free happy hour on Saturday. Room was nice, beds comfortable, and the bedsheets soft and comfy. Free WiFi throughout the property was a plus. I would definitely recommend and would return again if going to Ft. Lauderdale.

The staff was extremely courteous, and runs a well-maintained and very clean resort. Staff and guests are friendly, pools and spas are spotless, and grounds are immaculate. The included continental breakfast was good, too. The rooms are well appointed and decorated nicely; clearly a lot of renovation and upgrading has taken place. We would lobe to stay here again.

Just got back from two nights, and will DEFINITELY return! Staff is great, fellow guests nice and considerate, rooms and grounds clean and very well kept. Sure, it isn't the Ritz, but we didn't want that! We wanted friendly, comfortable, and affordable, and a taste of the old Florida vacation. Found that at the Alcazar/Worthington/Villa Venice!

I visited from January 1 to 6, 2013. This would be my 13th visit to Fort Lauderdale and I have visited this complex on ten times. Starting three years ago, I shifted from staying at The Worthington to The Alcazar. I get a basic single room (with a king size bed), The Alcazar rooms are a little larger and have a desk where I can do a little work - while even on vacation. The pool at The Alcazar is fine. It does not have a hot tub or ice machine but, with the addition of Villa Venice, there are two hot tubs/ice machines in the complex and both are just a few steps away. The other patrons are always very friendly and I am sure to return in the future.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room facing east. The morning sun will penetrate the best blackout curtains and bl...
