      Great Place!
      Came here with my bf to have some chill time... perfect choice. If you want a place that is quiet, calm, tasteful and well-maintained... Staff were unfailingly courteous and helpful - while not invading one's privacy. Difficult balance to achieve, these guys do.. Clothing is optional, with no bias one way or the other.... as for the location, easy access to all that Wilton Manors has to offer for daytime and nighttime amusements - but at the end of it, we could return to a calm oasis.

      Fantastic Place!
      I spent a few days to review it and other local resorts for friends traveling from Europe next year. I've already booked a second stay for later this year since I found it so enjoyable. This is a wonderful place that gets my highest recommendation. The accommodations and staff are absolutely first rate!

      I Love This Place!
      I've been to Cabanas twice now -- and will stay again when I return to Ft. Lauderdale. GREAT accommodations and really wonderful, helpful staff. You can walk to Wilton Manors -- or take a cab or the Green Hopper -- either way, it's very convenient. The guests were a fantastic mix of young and old, all sizes and ages and shapes; so I felt right at home and fit right in! The "clothing optional" part is quite nice, too. There was no pressure to be nude -- or not to be nude; people just did what they felt like in that regard, mostly around the pool. I was pretty new to the concept the first time I went and the casual, no pressure attitude made me feel right at home. I highly recommend this place!

      Great place!
      This place was very clean and the staff was very nice. It's a little more intimate then I expected but that's the beauty of it. I was upgraded and that was unexpected. :-) some of the locals come in from time to time and that can be hot. This place is probably popping during a holiday weekend.

      Probably funner for couples
      I visited in January 2011, took a solo trip to FtL, mostly to unplug from a very stressful job. The staff was courteous, my room was nice. It was a quiet atmosphere which I needed a lot. The accompanying spa does excellent work but is pricey, at least for my midwestern roots. I believe that couple or group travelers probably enjoy themselves more than the solo traveler does. I suggested that the management offer some sort of sign-up sheet for travelers interested in getting together for meals out or sightseeing activities. VERY LIMITED parking.

      Definitely recommended
      Staff were all great, especially Paul at the front desk, what a cutie!! The grounds were totally clean. Great pools, jacuzzi, steam room. Right on the canals. Secure parking. My room was large, always very clean, great bed and bedding, very comfy. Had fridge, microwave, coffee pot, and dishes. Flat screen with DVD player, and videos in the lobby to use. Bikes and kayaks. Crowd was very friendly. More on the bear cub side. Most went clothing optional. Friskier at night.

      fantastic stay
      One staff member was a jerk but the owner and the rest of the staff are helpful. I have referred 4 friends here and all have love the location. The hotel has no control over the crowd who stays there. But it was a decent mix of people. Can't wait to check in again

      Good hotel
      We are biracial couple and stayed at the hotel back in March. The hotel and staff was nice so no complaints. The hotel crowd was not our type as we prefer more racially mixed crowd in our age group (20s to 30s would be great).

      Great Place to stay
      I stayed at the Cabana's the week of Labor Day for the first time. I really enjoyed it. The rooms are extremely clean, the staff is great, especially John. He is a great host. I plan on going back the week of October 12th. The pools are nice, men are hot and it's a great place for a single guy to go to relax and meet other men. It is also very close to all the gay bars.

      Stayed at the Cabanas Guesthouse & Spa last December 2008....... From booking online and talking on the phone with John Dory, I could not have found myself in safer hands. He and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating, from the moment I stepped through the gate up until leaving. I shall return hopefully during December 2009.

      Best Place To Stay
      This place is great. The only all male resort located in the heart of the gay community. The place has a full service day spa, two pools, and the lush tropical compound sits on the water making the views very beautiful. The staff is very nice. Lot's of friendly cute guest and the rooms are really nice.
