U.S. News Review

The Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa is popular for its well-kept private beach, attentive poolside service and for boasting some of the best ocean vistas on the strip. (Cruise travelers particularly enjoy this resort's proximity to the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and the marina.) But there's also a downside to staying here: Many travelers say that the hotel feels much older than they expected and that cell phone and Wi-Fi coverage here is far from reliable. And speaking of disadvantages, some say that this Marriott's in-house cuisine is overpriced, as are the spa treatments offered on-site. But to end on a positive note, most say the staff here is excellent, working hard to provide the best experience. And remember: If you're a Marriott Rewards member you can use points to offset the cost of your stay (or earn rewards for future use).

Critic Reviews

Oyster.com

“After its $25 million makeover, this 650-room Marriott in Fort Lauderdale is great for kids — giant pool, kids' club, big, comfortable guest rooms — but there's still plenty for grown-ups, including yoga classes at the fitness center, an adult-only pool, and a full-service spa and salon.”

Frommer's

“This $8-million, 22,000-square-foot European spa is the first full-service seaside facility of its kind in Fort Lauderdale.”
Award: Frommer's Very Highly Recommended
