    Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2791 reviewsTripAdvisor (2791)

    Sandwiched between the Stranahan River and the beach, Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club has a primo locale away from the chaos of the strip. Rooms here are filled with cushy, Tommy Bahama-style furnishings, flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and complimentary high-speed internet access. Guests suggest splurging on an oceanfront suite to enjoy the breathtaking views. Meanwhile, the resort's private stretch of shoreline is popular for its chaise lounges and hammocks, as well as its activities available to children. After a long day spent in the sand and the sun, refresh your skin with a treatment at the on-site spa. And when you start to feel peckish, grab a bite at one of the four on-site dining options. Cruisers stand to benefit from this resort's location, being less than 3 miles from Port Everglades and 7 miles from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Keep in mind that you'll need a car to reach most destinations though.

    Pelican Grand Beach Resort, A Noble House Resort
    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    #2 in Best Resorts in Fort Lauderdale
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4559 reviewsTripAdvisor (4559)
    Free WiFi

    Located about a mile north of the Fort Lauderdale Beach strip along the Atlantic Ocean, the Pelican Grand Beach Resort, A Noble House Resort has quietly removed itself from the cruise ship hubbub to craft a more peaceful, Victorian-esque ambiance. Amenities like the wraparound veranda – decked out with classic rocking chairs – and the old-fashioned ice cream parlor are hits with guests. This member of the Noble House hotel group gets high praise for its family-friendliness too; the little ones are sure to love the lazy river, pool and beach, as well as the Funky Fish Ocean Camp (charges apply). As for dining, head to OCEAN2000 for seafood and steaks with a side of ocean views. When it's time to bed down, rooms feature city or ocean vistas, minifridges, coffee makers and, in some rooms, furnished balconies. Plus, the daily $30 resort fee includes the cost of internet access. You'll find this Fort Lauderdale resort on North Ocean Boulevard, less than 2 miles from the Bonnet House and about 9 miles northeast of the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

    Free WiFi

    The Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort is, as its name suggests, sits alongside Fort Lauderdale's beach – so gorgeous ocean views abound. But that's not the only reason people like staying here. This Hilton outpost is praised for its spectacular customer service and comfortable accommodations, which manage to remain peaceful despite its central location along the bustling promenade. Suites get high marks for their spaciousness, as well as the excellent views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Fort Lauderdale skyline. While staying here, guests have access to the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort's three in-house restaurants and spa. Travelers can opt for a treatment outdoors, then mozy on over to S3's trendy outdoor patio for specialty sushi rolls or the adults-only BalQony lounge for chic poolside bites and cocktails. Typical amenities are covered by the $35 daily resort fee, which some recent guests took issue with. And thanks to the resort's brand ties, Hilton Honors members can enjoy perks and privileges or collect points when staying here.

    Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa
    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    #4 in Best Resorts in Fort Lauderdale
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 3493 reviewsTripAdvisor (3493)
    Free WiFi

    Occupying 16 acres of prime beachfront in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, this resort is popular with vacationers. Activities and amenities abound at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa: Guests can enjoy a treatment in the 22,000-square-foot spa, break a sweat at the expansive gym, or bask in the sun in a lounge chair on the private beach or by one of two pools. And because of their coastal location, this Marriott outpost's restaurants feature menus full of fresh seafood. Many also offer outdoor dining with views of the ocean. When it's time to rest, guests will find rooms are bright with white and beige decor and come outfitted with coffee makers, flat-screen TVs and minibars. (Opt for a room with a view or a suite for floor-to-ceiling windows that offer impressive panoramas of the ocean or Intracoastal Waterway.) Past visitors were complimentary of the resort's picturesque location, comfortable accommodations and hospitable staff, adding that the customer service was simply outstanding. The property is also less than 5 miles northeast of Port Everglades, the city's cruise ship port, so it's a popular spot for cruisers traveling in and out of Fort Lauderdale. Plus, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn or use points by choosing to stay here.

    The Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort
    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    #5 in Best Resorts in Fort Lauderdale
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 473 reviewsTripAdvisor (473)

    This Westin in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has aced its color scheme – the lobby, beach chaises and even the exterior siding are done in calming blue and white hues. The soothing color palette carries into the guest rooms, which feature amenities like Heavenly Beds, flat-screen TVs and wooden furnishings. Even traveler complaints – like too few balconies – are overshadowed by praise for the friendly hotel staff. But if you're looking for privacy, the room's revealing slate bathroom doors are enough to reconsider. The hotel makes up for this oversight with its 6,500-square-foot Heavenly Spa by Westin, two on-site restaurants, an outdoor pool overlooking the ocean and a bridge connecting patrons directly to the beach. The resort's location – just south of the romantic Bonnet House along Fort Lauderdale Beach – makes it a convenient choice for sun-seekers and sightseers alike. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 475 reviewsTripAdvisor (475)

    Lauded by guests for its convenient location and laid-back atmosphere, B Ocean Resort sits 6 miles from the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Sun-seekers can stake their umbrellas in the sand along the property's private beach or claim a spot along two outdoor swimming pools. Meanwhile, those craving more activity can work up a sweat at the on-site 24-hour fitness center before indulging in flavorful Mexican fare (including Snapper Ceviche and homemade guacamole) served at Dos Caminos or lighter American and Caribbean inspired dishes at the Beach Bar & Grill. If you came to Fort Lauderdale to explore all the city has to offer, the hotel's Guest Services Desk can point you toward a myriad of activities, including shopping, sailing, scuba diving, jet skiing and more. When you're ready to turn in for the day, you'll find guest rooms and suites outfitted with complimentary Wi-Fi access, minifridges, flat-screen TVs and a calming blue and white color scheme. Past guests describe the rooms as stylish and highlight the impressive views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the Intracoastal waterway or the city skyline as a compelling reason to plan a future stay.

    Free WiFi

    Located down the street from the Bonnet House and just a few steps from the beach, this ultra-modern resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, receives high praise from travelers for its picturesque ocean views. But past visitors had mixed feelings about the property's decor: Some found the trendy neon touches (especially in the lobby) to be a bit over the top, while others said the atmosphere was tasteful and unique. The Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach's facilites also feature an outdoor pool, a fitness center and the highly acclaimed Bistro, which serves casual American fare. When it's time to sleep, recent guests were pleased that rooms come stocked with minifridges, flat-screen TVs, upscale bath amenities and Keurig coffee makers. However, for complimentary services like in-room Wi-Fi access and two welcome drinks, guests are charged a $20 (plus tax) daily resort fee.

    Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort & Spa

    #8 in Best Resorts in Fort Lauderdale
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1079 reviewsTripAdvisor (1079)

    Situated in Pompano Beach, Florida, about halfway between Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale near the Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse, the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort & Spa caters to vacationers and business travelers looking for a quiet getaway. The property boasts an outdoor pool, a whirlpool and a full-service spa. For business travelers, the resort offers two meeting rooms, with the largest venue able to accommodate up to 300 people. Whether traveling for business or for pleasure, most guests say the resort's proximity to uncongested beaches and excellent customer service were the highlights of their trip. Guests were just as complimentary of the great condition of the rooms, all of which feature balconies that overlook the resort grounds or ocean, as well as flat-screen TVs, minifridges and marble bathrooms with Bath & Body Works toiletries. Some recent travelers felt slighted by fees for parking and Wi-Fi, but as part of the Marriott brand, members of the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program can earn or use points here.

    Bonaventure Resort & Spa
    Weston, FL
    #9 in Best Resorts in Fort Lauderdale
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 3.5 based on 1452 reviewsTripAdvisor (1452)
    Free WiFi

    Situated about 19 miles west of downtown Fort Lauderdale, the Bonaventure Resort & Spa is bit of an inconvenient commute for those with plans to hit the beach. But it is a great choice if you want to explore the nearby Sawgrass Recreation Park or the Everglades. However, this property caters more to business travelers with ample meeting space and four restaurants, including the AAA Four Diamond-rated Ireland's Steakhouse. And when it comes time to take a break from work, test your game on the rolling fairways of the Bonaventure Country Club. If you're not much of a golfer, past guests recommend booking a massage or body treatment at the in-house spa or securing a spot next to one of the hotel's four pools for an afternoon in the sun. The Bonaventure's colonial-style guest rooms include marble bathrooms, iPod docking stations, flat-screen TVs and even bidets. Although minutes away from one of Fort Lauderdale's top attractions, the close proximity to Sawgrass Recreation Park's swampy environment has been known to linger into the property. Some recent guests reported encountering a musty smell in their rooms, as well as bugs. Keep in mind, it's location far from the city's beaches make it much cheaper than accommodations on the shore.
