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!

We had a fabulous time and it was only made better by Joe behind the bar. The way he connects with people and remembers their name is amazing. We will be back :) The views from the room and the accessibility to the beach was great!

First of all the Sonesta is very well placed as the Galleria Mall and Publix is a five minute walk away! The view onto the seafront is stunning when you enter your room and the staff are very friendly. Plus you get free food at certain times of the day which is a bonus.

First of all the Sonesta is very well placed as the Galleria Mall and Publix is a five minute walk away! The view onto the seafront is stunning when you enter your room and the staff are very friendly. Plus you get free food at certain times of the day which is a bonus. The only downside to this hotel is that it is at the north end of the main seafront bars and restaurants. So you may miss a bit of that atmosphere if it is what you are looking for. The pool is quite small which is a shame. It would be nice to make that bigger and to have it as a feature. Finally I had a massage with hot stones and it was amazing. So please do that if you visit. I also want to mention how amazing Suzette is. She got me sorted before I arrived and she is a great source of information. So thank you! Read less

Joe at the Sonesta Ft Lauderdale made our stay! He was so knowledgeable and friendly. He was able to remember all of the names of our group of five!! The hospitality from the front desk, to the restaurant and bar, all the way down to the beach was 10 out of 10. Thank you for making our stay so amazing, Joe!!
