...is how often we will come back. We love the Cabanas. It's like staying with family when we come to visit. Please look at my earlier review of the Cabanas because everything in that is just as accurate today as it was then.

The place is spectacular. The updated painting done on the exterior really looks amazing. We see the same staff each visit, which means the owners are obviously treating their team (not just employees) very well.

We've already booked our next visit and are excited to see what has changed since our recent visit. The owners are always investing in the property to keep it modern, clean, and 5 star.

Keep up the great work, guys!

Room Tip: The one-bedroom suite is our favorite, especially if you enjoy the peaceful waterside view, but all...

Hi Guys, Thank you once again for sharing your experience and years of continued support of The Cabanas Guesthouse & Spa. It's so true when you say "Family" because that is how we feel when you arrive , catching up on everything going on between visits and surprising you with the changes that you don't let us share with you before you arrive. It's guests like you, that make it all worth while. Have a great 2014 guys.

Gentlemen, Happy New Year and thank you for choosing The Cabanas Guesthouse & Spa for your Holiday travel. Ben I really enjoyed our chats in the morning when you would pop in for a few minutes to say HI. I know you guys had a great time because you where always hanging at the pool laughing and having fun. Next visit is sure to be at least as good or even better. Have a great year as we look forward to seeing you again before December.

Title describes it all. Hubby and I ONLY stay here when we are in So Florida. We have tried the rest but hands down Cabanas is truly THE BEST. Entire staff is friendly, helpful and truly concerned about their guests. The grounds are lush and well taken care of. They have various room types and all are CLEAN!!!! I'm one of those "picky" travelers and I can honestly say I have NOTHING negative to say about the Cabanas.

One of the best places I've ever stayed,had to add extra day. Owners, staff, and guests all friendly, informative, and very accommodating. A most relaxing atmosphere. Kayaking wore me out, didn't know I could get lost going in a circle, still a worthwhile adventure. Looking forward to my next stay.

HI Roger, Thank you for taking the time to review The Cabanas Guesthouse & Spa. Wishing you a very Happy New Year and would think at this writing you are still thinking about that wonderful warm sunny day that you went kayaking now that its freezing cold. I do remember we did have a few laughs about the wrong turn you made that took you off course. We did agree that next time will be sure you have a detailed may. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Just returned from a nice few days at Cabanas Guesthouse & Spa. Kudos to John, David, Paul and the great staff for a wonderful stay! The staff is so friendly and willing to answer questions (John and I joked about my many questions!) that you feel at home.

I love to big heated pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and overall relaxed feel of the resort. Also, great place to sit at the dock and watch the evening sky with a friend. The other guests were great too.

Looking forward to my next visit...thanks guys and Happy New Year! I highly recommend you men head to Cabanas when in Ft. Lauderdale!

Room Tip: Rooms with patios on the canal look nice but our room (#7) was fine.

Hi Guys, Happy New Year and a big Thank You for choosing The Cabanas Guesthouse & Spa for your travel needs. I have been living in the Fort Lauderdale area now for over 30 years and never feel inconvenienced when guests call on me or my staff for numerous questions and suggestions as we want everyone to have a wonderful experience while visiting the Fort Lauderdale area. Over the summer we have completed numerous projects at the resort and appreciate the fact that you took the time to notice and let others know.
The season is here and with the extreme cold weather throughout the country we are booking up quickly and would suggest to anyone considering The Cabanas to call us soon.
We look forward to seeing you again real soon.

I love to stay at the Cabanas when visiting Ft. Lauderdale. The staff is very accommodating from providing information about the locale to making sure rooms are kept clean, servicing bedding, laundry, and making sure the grounds are neat and clean. Professional, well-run establishment. The recent make-overs have really spruced up some of the rooms. Pool areas are always clean. The location is fantastic with Wilton Drive a short cab ride - like 7 bucks - to the west, and the beaches about a mile to the east. I have stayed here multiple times and will continue into the future. Thanks for another great stay guys!
