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...

I truly enjoyed this gem in the rough. It is a small hotel but truly beautiful. I enjoyed the upgraded rooms, the welcome of Edward and Keith was just wonderful. They make you feel like family. They even gave me a late check out and when I wanted to just hang around to pool until 2pm they allowed me to...

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.

What a wonderful idea to reserve all our rooms currently at fifteen and growing to host your family and friends to celebrate your special weekend event. With our summer rates in effect it certainly makes it affordable. Clean rooms and friendly, knowledgeable staff is our number one goal.
