Upscale men's resort
One of the biggest Fort Lauderdale gay guesthouses, The Grand Resort has rooms that are nicer than many of the standard gay guesthouses in Ft. Lauderdale. The back deck is the clothing-optional area. The Grand Resort Spa is open to the public and offers massages, facials, body wraps & scrubs.

      The hotel is one of the converted 70's hotels. However, these guys did a great job. The rooms are nice (comfortable beds, etc.), but the mgmt. is constrained by the 70's style architecture. Where they excel is in how they present the rooms, the office, etc. They have an okay gym, but a GREAT spa!!! I would definitely recommend a spa visit when staying. It is always nice to be so close to the ocean, for late night walks on the beach. Great location.

    • Love this hotel. Feels clean, nice, sexy but not overly sexual or predatory, walk to the beach, it's a bit of a walk to the gay beach, but still great

      Weekend Get Away
      Spent this past weekend, 4 days at the Grand. Great rooms, very clean and wonderful staff. Guest are very friendly, and made several new friends. What a wonderful place to go relax, have fun and let your hair down.

      Just stayed here in off season for anniversary
      The Grand is a lovely, modern property with an excellent staff. The hotel is well maintained, very clean, and conveys an understated sense of style (Pottery Barn browns, bright orange pool towels add a pop of color....). This is a place to come and vacation alone or with your SO in a comfortable atmosphere. It is not a sexualized experience; there are other places in FL for that. The Grand is a resort for adults, and it works hard to act that way.

      Very Nice
      I am a local and have stayed here a few times. I really have enjoyed itl It has a mixed crowd of all ages and types of guys. Good average sexual temperature - a bit cruisy but not much action here.... Nice place to go if you are looking for a quality experience, Great rooms that are very comfortable and modern,

      Best In Ft. Lauderdale
      We have stayed in numerous places in the Lauderdale/Miami area and The Grand Resort is by far the best guest house around. The staff is extremely friendly, the accommodations are great, the rooms are clean and well appointed and the ammenities are FANTASTIC! There is enough "play" to enjoy and yet enough quiet to relax and rejuvinate. Unless we invest in our own vacation home, we will be staying at The Grand Resort.

      Consistently Outstanding
      I've been going to Florida with friends a couple of times a year for the past five years. I almost always stay at The Grand and those times I didn't, I regretted it. There may be flashy, new resorts in the area but none can hold a candle to the service and facilities you'll find here. The staff is beyond gracious, kind, often amusing and well-trained. Thier attention to detail is unsurpassed. The rooms are always clean and the grounds are tidy and well-kept. Take my word for it; you'll find no better place to stay in this area of Fort Lauderdale than The Grand Resort and Spa.

      Best I have seen
      I have been to many Gay resorts in the Northeast and this has to be by a long shot the best. Very very clean. Well maintained and peaceful. I was alittle sceptical from the street but once you walk through the door it is very peaceful. Older crowd but nice

      Recommended.
      Very clean and well maintained. Room was big and well appointed with a contemporary decor but bargain was small without exhaust. Gardens pool and jaccussi are very nice. Breakfast is great. Staff is professional and attentive. Location is excellent if you want to be near beach and major hotels. Spa is in location as well as small fitness room. In summary great place for vacationing if you are not looking for sleazy.

      LOVED the spa services and staff
      Customer service is a huge part of the package. The Grand def has this aspect down. The accomodations, in my opinion are average & slightly dated. My partner & I come yearly for a long weekend and also when we are in town staying elsewhere. We mainly come for the spa services and again the staff is top notch. Would highly recommend for that alone.

      Great place
      Definitely the nicest of any gay resort i have been to in North America including anything in palm springs. Friendly staff and great beach location. The suites are really nice too.

      Overrated
      My friends and I stayed at this resort last weekend. We stayed in the large penthouse.The only good thing I could say about it was the large amount of space. However, the decor was not upscale. The a/c in the master bedroom did not work. The a/c knob in the living room was broken. No vents in the master bathroom. Both bathroom faucets vibrated loudly. Dust everywhere. During a severe thunderstorm, water was leaking through the drywall. If you are going to pay $400/night, you should expect top notch amenities and service. I am all about supporting gay businesses but I am sorry I cannot recommend this property.

      Exceptional!
      A friend told me about Grand Resort & Spa last year. I booked a 4 day visit and loved it! Exceptional in many respects; staff, cleanliness of room, welcoming atmosphere. I'm looking forward to my second, 4-day visit next week.
