Spent a week at GPP and it was awesome!! I had a 1 bedroom suite with a nice living room, full kitchen and a bedroom with a very comfortable king sized bed. Larger flat screens in the living room and bedroom. The courtyard and pool are very nice. The other guests were really nice - if you want to socialize...

Thanks for your wonderful review. We truly appreciate your kind words and your recent stay with us. Referring to our staff members by their first names is our greatest accomplishment other than providing a clean safe property for you to enjoy. They all bring their own unique style of hospitality. We are so glad to hear they not only treated...

We typically have a large group and have stayed at the GPP many times over the past several years and have always experienced a very pleasurable stay. The property was renovated last year and is now more attractive and comfortable than ever. Edward, Keith, Rick and Chun always go far and beyond to make sure everyone has a wonderful time....

The staff at Grand Palm was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, and the housekeeping staff cleaned very well. Quiet, laid back atmosphere. Within comfortable walking distance to the beach. It would be nice if the continental breakfast was expanded.

The Grand Palm is a nice alternative to the large hotels in the area. While it is not right on the beach it is close enough that you can walk there easily. Keith, Edward, and the rest of the staff are really nice and helpful. The room we stayed in was a double and was spacious, clean, and comfortable. I...

This was our first stay after the renovation. We booked the Grand Palm Plaza many times before as it is in a very safe en convenient location close to Sebastian's beach and all the other activities Ft Lauderdale has to offer. Once again we loved this place! The grounds, exterior and rooms have all been going a very nice update....

This property was way better four (4) years ago. After reading the reviews, we expected more then the resort offered. Yes, this is a resort for a gathering of friends. The property has a communal seating area with a limit of 6-8 people. A coat of paint did not make it quaint. Staff were nice, yet not exceptional. Do not...

Gentlemen, I am sorry that the property was not up to your expectations. 4 years ago, our property was suffering from neglect from the previous owners. Since you compared us to Elysium, a property that is in need of a serious makeover, I am confused by your standards when choosing a hotel. But since you seem to be the minority,...

I would like to first say that I normally do not right reviews. This is one of my first ones ever. I rented The Grand Palm Plaza Resort to host my Thirtieth Birthday Party. Let me just say that it was the perfect venue for a perfect get together. I rented pretty much the entire venue including rooms for the...

I reviewed this hotel last spring and vowed I would try somewhere else the next time I was in Ft Lauderdale. But, since they had gone through a complete renovation since the last time I was here, I decided to try it again. I am glad I did. We stayed for 5 nights in late June 2014. Keith was great...

We stayed memorial day weekend. We were originally booked at another of their properties that was overbooked and they more than made up for the inconvenience. The staff was extremely attentive and friendly. The room was very clean and it was quiet. We would definitely stay there again.
