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!

My daughter and I stayed for a 4 night get away. We were very happy with the hotel. The room was clean on arrival. We felt very safe traveling alone. At this time due to covid they are not cleaning rooms daily, however if you needed anything all you had to do was call the front desk and they would get it to you very quickly. We had a broken TV and it was replaced immediately. The beach access was directly across the street and had chairs reserved for the guests. We spent most of our time at the pool which was spotless and has food available poolside. Loved the view from our room each morning. We had a mix up with our Jet Blue trip and they worked with us on making it all work out. I would definitely visit this hotel again for location and for the service. Thanks to all for a great trip for my daughter and myself! Read less
