I became aware of The Grand Resort on my last visit to Ft. Lauderdale. I'd made some friends who were staying there and they invited me to hang by the pool and socialize. When I walked in and saw the place, I said to myself, "this is where I'm staying next time." I booked for Spring Break 2017 and just...

Everything is taken care of for you! A great place to relax and have fun! All amenities are taken care of. We were offered a free upgrade so we didn't have to change rooms. Breakfast included! Great service!

The staff is accommodating and eager to make your stay enjoyable. They are the most appealing aspect of this place. The rooms are large but rather Spartan. The furniture is a bit dated and worn. Overall, they are clean. The minibar is reasonably priced, which was a pleasant surprise. The property needs a bit of TLC, but overall is nice.

This was my second stay at the Grand Resort & Spa in Fort Lauderdale. Last year I was fortunate to be able to get a one-night stay and promptly reserved an extended time for this year (9 nights). The Grand is nothing short of a 5-star resort for gay men. Period! From the welcome of upon arrival, to minute details,...

There is nothing very grand about The Grand Resort. In fact, in some ways, it seems pretty tired. Wifi is weak, furniture looks old and worn, the fitness room is tiny, and - unbelievable though it may seem in this day and age - smoking is permitted all around the pool area. My room was on the ground floor and...

The best experience in the beach area. Enjoyed a five night stay. Excellent breakfast selection in the club room. Hot items included eggs, potatoes, bacon, ham and sausage. 24 hour front desk a definite plus.
