Recent guest reviews

The staff was friendly! I was surprised the pool area was small. Room was comfortable but we'r heard ac issues.

Big clean room - beautiful view - comfy bed - amazing access to the beach - very friendly staff

Shower floor was very dirty, Staff was very nice, No Parking! Valet was very expensive!

The hotel was great. All of the staff from valet to front desk to bar tenders to the waitstaff at the pool where all top notch. Location is great with the beach right across the street. Also, if visiting during spring break, you are far enough away from that madness.

Great location on the beach. Lots of restaurants nearby as well as Galleria Shopping Mall.

I liked the different types of food every day around check-in, as well as happy hour, and complementary beach chairs and towels. I didn’t like the yellow water, in the toilets and sink, didn’t like that the shower has a fixed door and a big opening.

nice hotel close to the beach with friendly staff especially Joseph who was excellent

Nice hotel tastefully updated! The rooms are beautiful and a beautiful beach area for guests. My only criticism was that a lot of areas are under construction(which I’m sure will be nice once done) but the bar is a temporary, low quality structure in the lobby and drinks and food were way overpriced for the quality.

Very nice. Staff was very friendly. Definitely would recommend.

Good location. Nice staff. Was just looking for a place to stay close to the Ft Lauderdale airport for my return flight after vacation in Key West. Other places were cheaper and closer to the airport, but Sonesta was not very expensive and had an ocean view, so mI thought for the extra money it would be nice to wake up to the view. However, after they slapped on a hefty parking fee and a large "daily fee".. I was left wishing that I had booked one of the cheap places "real close" to the airport. Bottom line... this is a nice place to stay if you are staying in Ft Lauderdale and are looking to go to the beach and board walk and are aware of the these added on fees... the place I stayed at in Key West charged a hefty Fee for "self parking", which I was unaware of until check out. Could be a Florida thing for not disclosing these fees? I travel quite a bit and have never had this issue.

Suzette at the front desk is a wonderful person zack and Chris at vialet were awesome

Nice hotel and closed to the beach, no pool available

I sought a hotel by the beach...this served that purpose exactly...

Close beach access, the hotel smell was very overpowering like a strong perfume, the rooms were clean, hallways and lobby was dark with color lights which wasn't very bright and welcoming coming from the beautiful sunny weather outside, the infused water in the lobby was good
