Fort Lauderdale Beach Resorts

Fort Lauderdale beach resorts overlook some of the best beaches along the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. This friendly Florida city has a lot of choices for accommodations throughout town, but there’s something special about staying right along the ocean. You don’t need to worry about finding a picnic spot or leaving before sunrise to stake out a spot on the sand, and you don’t have to feel like you have to stay all day. If you need a break for lunch or just want to stay a few hours, it’s easy to return to your room and be back on the beach whenever you want. Fort Lauderdale has come a long way, especially when it comes to its accommodations. The hotels have upgraded and expanded greatly over the past decade, especially along the beach.

The Marriott Fort Lauderdale/Pompano Beach Oceanfront Hotel joined the scene in 2013. Like all of the Fort Lauderdale beach resorts, the Marriott offers amazing views, just steps away from the fishing charters and watersports. The property features 219 rooms along with five suites—many with ocean-view balconies. All guests are welcome on the roof, where a terrace also offers sweeping views, as well as the pool complex and the restaurants. There’s been a boom in luxury hotels lately, reminding visitors that a Fort Lauderdale spring break isn’t just for kids. The first W Hotel in Florida opened in 2009, bringing with it a $205 million resort with 482 rooms. Other luxury hotels are well represented in Fort Lauderdale, and similarly large amounts of money have been spent in transforming the properties. The Sheraton Yankee Trader recently morphed into the Westin Beach Resort, and after $70 million spent on upgrades, the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina is now better than ever.

All-Inclusive Beach Resorts

If you’re looking for a taste of the Caribbean without actually traveling to an island, staying in one of the all-inclusive Fort Lauderdale beach resorts will give you a taste. For one price, you’ll receive a lot for your money, including accommodations, meals, and all the fun things to do. While you won’t find a lot of all-inclusive resorts along the coast, a handful can be found in South Florida. One, the Inverray Vacation Resort, is nestled between Fort Lauderdale and the Everglades. Guests of the 207-room resort have full access to meals and snacks, along with the pools, rock climbing wall, and kid’s games. Upgrades are available for golf and spa packages for those who really want to relax.

It may seem like staying along the beach is a dream out of reach for those on a budget, however, this isn’t always the case. When you consider the savings in parking and the hassles, it often is better to stay at the beach. For the same price as staying at one of the airport hotels, you could enjoy ocean views and quick access to some of the best beaches in Florida. The Silver Seas Resort was also upgraded during the great hotel boom, making the rooms and amenities even more inviting. The sun deck and outdoor pool complex provide a chance to feel the sun on your shoulders before and after hitting the beach, which is just a few steps away. Also nearby, you’ll find easy access to some of Fort Lauderdale's most enjoyable activities, including watersports, shopping, and beachfront dining.
