Just got back from a week in Ft. Lauderdale with my daughters college softball team. I have to say I am completely surprised at some of the reviews talking about the staff and how people are mean and rude. We had such wonderful customer service from early check-in, to the great help from Doug (bartender) who helped us arrange a team party and karoake night at the bar. If you have a chance to order a pizza from the chef - do it. The hotel itself does need a little work, but for the price we paid - we can't complain. Thank you to all the staff at Universal Palms for all you did to make our stay so enjoyable!! Hope to see you again!
