Sonesta Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale, Gold Coast Beaches

The hotel

Oozing style and sophistication, one of the many great things about the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale is where it is. Set just steps from the 7-mile stretch of sands, you can be jumping in those lapping waves in no time. But it’s not all about the beach. You’ll love the relaxing, calm infinity-edge pool, and the spa suite where you can treat yourself to a massage. The restaurant is a cool twist of Caribbean and American food, and not forgetting the tasty cocktails!

Spent 6 days at this beautiful, clean hotel. Evelyn at the front desk was great! She was very informative regarding the hotel and amenities and allowed us to check in early, also gave us a beautiful room upgrade. Kevin, the chef at the hotel restaurant, Steelpan was very gracious and made us feel welcomed. We had the pleasure of meeting him as we were checking in and he took the time to get to know us. During our last day at the hotel he surprised us with a delicious chocolate cake. Amy and Cary, servers at the restaurant were very friendly and attentive. Overall the hotel exceeded our expectations! Espically during the Covid-19 pandemic I felt extremely comfortable. I can't wait to come back! Read less

Rafael is the best beach adviser I’ve ever had! Very polite and had amazing service right by the beach! Made chilling by the beach as relaxing and as fun as it can. I would recommend this place to anyone I talk to.

We decided to take a day trip to the beach. The water wasn’t that great, but that’s ok. We rented chairs with Rafael. He was very polite and moved our chairs where we wanted them. He came to us and asked how we were throughout the day. Let me tell you, it was hot as hell out there and he worked his butt off! Crazy how he does it alone! Good job… Read more
