Recent guest reviews

The majority of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Great little beach hotel. Offers commentary valet for hotel guests. Rooms are nice and clean. Great beach bar and grill. Great beach staff offering chairs, umbrellas, and towels. Overall great expereince.

The hotel was nice and clean! The pool and beach area were great.

This is a well-kept property with two buildings plus a swimming pool. The main building fronts onto Ocean boulevard. The second building fronts onto the ocean beside the swimming pool. There is no restaurant facility, but there is a sandwich place just off the main area on the ground floor. the hotel is situated about a 5 - 10 minute walk from the centre of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea where there are many restaurants and shops.

We really enjoyed our stay at Plunge. Everything my son and I needed was right there- pool, beach, games, food and drinks, bikes, gelato, and more. The rooms are clean and up to date and the staff was super friendly and attentive. A special thanks to Miguel, Josh, John, and Garrett for always taking care of us at the beach!

What a true oasis from the usual large and busy Ft. Lauderdale hotels. It was young and hip but also very accommodating to all. It was great for my husband and I, but would work for families too. We stayed in the Bungalow, it was equipped with a sink, stove top, and refrigerator and an exclusive pool. The beach was quiet and well maintained.

Great location and nice room. The only thing we didn’t like was that they didn’t have enough cleaning staff to get you room cleaned in a timely manner. We would leave our room around 9 in the morning and spend the day at the beach and when we would return around 4 or 5, the room hadn’t been touched. Maid service didn’t even make it to the room until after 6:00 in the evening.

Nice. Close to the beach, and the bed was very comfortable!

Great hotel and location, only complaint is no coffee pot in room. Even motel 8 has coffee in the room:)

Nice hotel, very close to beach. Bar over looking beach. Free bike rental and restaurants close by.

Clean, close to beach, bar on beach, convenient to everything

Nice hotel, near to the beach. Next time -on the beach! Good food at the Back Flip, the Octopus Restaurant, and fun drinks by the pool. Great staff, pleasant conversation and helpful when needed. Great fish tacos! Housekeeping was efficient and friendly.

Great place to relax, resort has a nice atmosphere and amenities are excellent

Very Nice hotel, loved everything about it will definitely be back
