The location of the hotel is across from the beach. It is walking distance to the Galleria mall. The restaurant in the hotel has a limited menu but there are a number of restaurants at the Galleria Mall to choose from. The staff is very pleasant and helpful and the room I stayed in was nice.

The location is terrific, across from the beach, bike paths, restaurants and shopping malls. Definitely a comeback place.

We are very happy with our stay, considering our cost . We're a family w/ a 3 and 1 year old. Sonesta provided a crib which fit perfectly in the closet w/ the door open, which was helpful b/c it was out of the way, a little darker, and a little quieter in there. We did bring a sound machine because you can hear some of what goes on in the other rooms. Our room came with 2 beds, numerous towels, a Keurig with 4 k-cups and cups.The hotel pool area was nice, where you can get 2 beach towels with each room (with the $45 daily rate fee), and exchange them for fresh ones as needed. The beach area is right across the street.. 2 lounge chairs are included in the daily rate fee and you can rent an umbrella for $25 which we did a few times because of the kids. There was a pizza place which sold by the slices (cash only) right at corner. There are a few restaurants really close like Steelpan (in the hotel) where we went for a really good breakfast. There is a Aqua Mediterranean restaurant across the street which had great breakfast sandwiches and coffee, and an ice cream shop right behind Sonesta with homemade ice cream. El Taquito mexican restaurant right beside the hotel. We would typically walk down the street 10-15 minutes for some nicer restaurants for dinner, including Case del Mare and Casablanca. We also walked to Village Cafe for breakfast. There is also a liquor store right across the street where we could get large bottle of waters for the room. There is a parking fee.

Be aware, a room with 2 beds means 2 double beds, not queen size beds. Very small rooms.

Great ambience

We had a great stay! Ronald at the front desk was great to assist us when we got there!

This was the best view we’ve ever had at a hotel. The staff were all so helpful and kind. We loved our bartender, Andy. He made us feel like old friends. Don’t worry about a smaller pool - just go and enjoy the beach, unbelievable view and beautiful atmosphere. Peruvian restaurant one block down is incredible. We loved everything about our stay. Thank you to all at the Sonesta!

Great value! Wonderful location! Staff was exceptional 😊

We had a quick trip to Fort Lauderdale. Sonesta was perfect. The location is great with the beach across the street. The views are amazing! We went to the State Park and took the water taxi… super fun! Definitely recommend!!!

Really nice stay. Love that it’s across the street from the beach. Lots of eateries and stores to stop in near the hotel. Very accommodating staff.

AC did not work, no hot water and they were on generator power when I first showed up yet. Didn’t even offer a discount to add insult.

Clean updated rooms. All ocean view. No balconies however. Nice smaller pool area, bar in the pool area. Beach is across the street. Free beach chairs. Umbrellas are extra. Front desk staff is top notch. Security on site. Hotel sits about 1 mile from all the “tourist traps”. But plenty of bars/restaurants within easy walking distance. I would stay hear again no question.

Very good property I love I have a great time. Thank you for service

Our front guest service woman was OUT OF THIS WORLD- so so nice and pleasant and had so much personality that if I owned a hotel I’d pay her triple to steal her from sonesta. The gentleman with her was super cool. Even the valet gentlemen were fun and pleasant with each interaction. Wow!

No housekeeping service, no parking, small and noisy pool. On top of that they charge 40 USD daily for nothing. Location sorrounded by rundown and filty bars. Not worth the price. For the same amount of money you can get much better hotels closeby.
