“our stay at the grand”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

Me and my partner checked out some gay resorts on fort lauderdale beach and made our decision to stay here. The property has very nice style and the pool area is amazing. Everything was wonderful besides just two things that kind of irritated us..... first was coming out to have a night swim we see the overnight stay hooking up with guest in the hot tub... that really gives a bad impression about this wonderful hotel... second thing is how early the housekeepers knock on the doors and storm in the room with out the ok. That was the only two things we did not really like. But in all we did have a good time the spa is awesome and so enjoyable. If we come back down from new york we will for sure make an appointment at the spa for the day.

Stopped by the Grand Resort this week on return flight from Puerto Rico. We've been staying here since 2005 and had another wonderful time. The staff is what makes this resort a notch above the rest. Casey & Herb must be doing something right because the front desk staff, spa staff, housekeeping, and maintenance crew have all been there since we first arrived 8 years ago. And we ran into more regular guests this time again.
Bill upgraded us to a junior suite in the courtyard with a private patio. Suite included full kitchen, dining/living room, bath, & large bathroom. This was as big as most apartments. As always, the room was very clean, had two flat screens tv's, dvd, docking station, free wi-fi that actually covers the entire property. Grounds are well kept with nice, tropical vegetation.
The guests are mostly professional from 30's-50's with a good single/couple mix. Fairly easy to meet others as everybody is quite friendly. This resort and clientele reflect class.

Room Tip: Try the junior suite in the courtyard with private patio.

We spent only 2 nights in this gay resort and we regretted , we had not spent more time there.
The location is great, very close to beach and city centre. Rooms are comfortable, equiped with cofee maker, DVD etc. They are spotless , very clean. The communal area is enjoyable pool and jacuzzi. The provide event a breakfest with quite a wide selection of items. The staff is friendly and attentive. We met a lot of funny people and the atmosphere is very friendly. Definitely worth staying there!!!

I lost count of how many times I've stayed here but when you find perfection, there's no need to go elsewhere.

This time I had a 1 bedroom suite which is larger than many 1 bedroom apartments. The large living / dining room had new furniture from the last time I had this room. The kitchen has everything except for an oven (it does have a modern 4 burner smooth top stove). The bathroom was updated and large and the bedroom was larger than my bedroom at home.

The grounds and room were impeccably clean.

The breakfast was great for a place with no food license with 3 types of juice, 2 types of bagels, cereals, yogurt as well as other items.

The staff is top rate. Very helpful and engaging when you need them and very respectful and non intrusive when you don't.

I will always stay at the Grand!

Third time back to The Grand. Absolutely a great location at a great price.

Good mix of singles and couples - most of them are returning also which means something to the owner and his staff. People want to come back and look forward to the time away.

Rooms are extremely clean and well furnished. The Spa staff and manager JD are on top of their game. Best service and are polite to the guests at all times.

Happy Hour on Thur-Sat provides the time to get to know others. Lots of places to walk to and eat in the area but having a car there is no problem either.

Feel safe at night and know that if you need something - just ask. It's never a problem.

Great service with a smile.

The Grand is a good example of how far gay resorts have come since the days of second-class accommodations. Staying at the Grand is a first-rate experience, thanks in large part to the friendly and attentive staff. The resort is very well located if you choose to be at the beach (and why wouldn't you?), and is clean, comfortable and a good value. We send special thanks to Herb, who took care of a potential glitch in a very classy way. Well done. We will stay here again....
