Sonesta Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale, Gold Coast Beaches

The hotel

Oozing style and sophistication, one of the many great things about the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale is where it is. Set just steps from the 7-mile stretch of sands, you can be jumping in those lapping waves in no time. But it’s not all about the beach. You’ll love the relaxing, calm infinity-edge pool, and the spa suite where you can treat yourself to a massage. The restaurant is a cool twist of Caribbean and American food, and not forgetting the tasty cocktails!

The strip was great- we had nice breakfasts at mamapapaya and village cafe. Dinner- I would highly recommend shooters!! The little taco place on the beach was amazing with great drinks as well. We will be back! Read less

Sonesta is FABULOUS! Beautiful clean, modern rooms, great views of the beach, attentive staff. The pool is small but you’re right on the beach so I didn’t mind. The Steelpan restaurant downstairs is great. Loved it, will definitely be returning
