We had a great time at The Big Coconut Guesthouse. We stayed for a week and would have loved to stay longer. This little resort is very well located in Fort Lauderdale, easy to reach about everything of gay interest. But you may not even want to leave. The pool is fun, especially at happy hour. The staff is amazing,...

We had never stayed here before, but have been to FLL many times and wanted to try something new. It's a cozy little place with a big bed and warm pool. Tim was so helpful with a dinner recommendation (try Ethos!) We were only there one night, but it was ver nice.

My husband and I had a very pleasant stay at the Big Coconut Guesthouse. Tom is a great host and made us feel at home! Convenient location to downtown Fort Lauderdale, steps away from Victoria Park and Parker Play House Theatre, beaches, restaurants, close to Wilton Manors, etc. Fun time and great memories! ;)

I stayed here with a friend for three nights prior to the RSVP Caribbean Cruise. I was quite impressed. It's about a 10 minute drive to the guys beach and 10 minutes to the bars in Wilton Manors. The rooms were large and very clean. The beds were very comfortable. The curtains kept the light out so no earlier than...

We arrived at this premier guesthouse for a 4 night stay. The clothing optional property catering to men is intimate, offering 17 guest rooms all situated around a quaint courtyard. The property has only been open a short time, but the work that has been done has made the location which is close to Wilton Manors very welcoming. We were...

This is a new hotel, managed by David after the closure of the previous one. He managed to preserve almost all those traditions that gave such a charm to his previous hotel. A certain range of guests who remember each other. Cozy rooms. Daily high-quality cleaning of rooms with changing towels (Tom, you are a great fellow!). Small cute swimming...

Beautiful place to stay. We got stuck here because of the blizzard up north and the host went out of his way to accommodate us. This location is close to everything and really quite lovely. We will definitely be back.

Tom and I just returned from a delightful two-week stay at the Big Coconut. It's a great place to stay in Fort Lauderdale!!! Close to everything!!! David, Tom and Tim provide wonderful hospitality. The rooms are very spacious, beautifully decorated, and clean! The most impressive thing about the Big Coconut is the very welcoming vibe one gets from the owner,...

Very friendly staff and clientel. The owner is very accommodating. Very relaxing and quiet. My first stay, but plan to go back. Nice rooms, some are actually studio style apartments. Complimentary continental breakfast everyday and happy hour twice a week.
