Sonesta Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale, Gold Coast Beaches

Virgin rating

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, not to forget the tasty cocktails!

We had a great stay after the wedding! Rooms and views were great. We had 9 people group and Jeremy helped us during check in and throughout our stay! Area around the pool is great and staff is always friendly and accommodating. One tip for the stay - get your beach umbrellas early, as there are not a lot of them!

The hotel and the location is unmatched. The room and the views of the ocean feel like a dream. Jeremy has made our getaway beyond unforgettable. He has went above and beyond to make our trip beautiful. We came for a getaway with family after getting married and he made sure we all got the best experience! Highly recommend Sonesta!

Very good experience in this beatiful hotel. The view of the beach and water from our room is breathtaking. Jeremy checked us in and is very kind and always with a smile. The pool is very nice place to hang out and swim if beach is too hot. 2 free drink coupons at bar are a plus.
