Overview

Starting rates here are more affordable than those found closer to downtown Fort Lauderdale
Resort's proximity to Sawgrass Recreation Park mean attraction's musty odor tends to linger into guest rooms

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.

This massive suburban enclave – formerly a Hyatt Regency-flagged resort – targets conventioneers and business executives as well as international vacationers who value golf, the Everglades, and shopping over beach proximity; factor in the allure of the huge and soothing ALaya Spa and the 'Choose Your Journey' package that includes a spa treatment with the room and you'll see why. Spacious guest rooms have a light British-colonial look, with plentiful amenities such as iPod docks.
