So what to say. I will start with the pros and then the few cons I have. So the resort is quite friendly and comfortable, and all but one staff person was friendly. The place is down the road from The Bonnet Estate which is a must experience place for anyone. It’s also extremely close to a lot and mostly within walking distance as well as being walking distance to the beach. Nudity is allowed everywhere except the staircases or the few balconies they are facing the parking lots; sadly this was suite 3 where I was. But I did get the best view of the hot tub area where some beautiful men were much of the time. The pool is heated which makes the Florida heat somehow seem less scorching. And I think it is a salted water pool as I did not have any eye burning, etc. The only con I have is the firmness of the beds. I have a bad vertebrae that likes to swell up.Overall I am so pleased with mine and my partner’s experience here. I hope to be back sometime.

Visited for a morning 50-min deep tissue with Roberto and it was worth every penny and more! The staff at The Grand Resort is lovely, accommodating and have excellent customer service. Roberto is an expertly skilled masseuse. I highly recommend!

It's an okay place..no flowers outside for such a pretty place. Breakfast was unhealthy stuff..ugh Room service..oh wait..there was NONE, yet there was a tip envelope..for what? No parties, pool music was droll. Staff was very nice! There are other places in Lauderdale that give you more for the same $$$.. Won't be back

Just checked in today. This my first stay here. The facilities are great, room is great. However I have no wifi in my room, only by the pool. I reported the wifi immediately after i got to my room. This is a working vacation for me and I'm so disappointed that I now can only work by the pool during the day, which was not my plan. It doesn't seem to be a priority either. The person on duty said they emailed the manager but that I won't know anything until tomorrow. Super frustrated.

My husband I visited Fort Lauderdale in March, and although we did not stay at the resort, we did book a few spa sessions, which came with a day pass to the resort.The spa was fantastic! Both of us had a sugar scrub and a massage, and while I was there I also booked a back facial. Roberto was my therapist for both the scrub and the massage, and I cannot say enough good things about him. The scrub was like nothing I ever experienced before - so relaxing, so luxurious feeling, and so rejuvenating. The massage was also wonderful - a nice combination and muscle rubs and stretches. I would do both again when I come back for a visit, and I would definitely request Roberto because he was so amazing. Not only were both treatments enjoyable, but Roberto was extremely friendly, put me at ease immediately, and seemed like an all around great guy. I enjoyed our conversation as much as I enjoyed the scrub and the massage.I was excited to get my first back facial, too. I had never had one before and had been wanting to try one for a while. Paula did my treatment and was also wonderful. She also gave me some really good advice for keeping my usually terrible back skin in a good shape. I would definitely get another one, or maybe try my first facial with Paula.Overall, I can’t recommend the spa enough. If you only have time for one visit, do not miss out on a scrub. You will not regret it.

This is our 3rd stay at The Grand Resort and it is just fantastic. We always meet great new friends - people from all walks of life and from all over the US. The staff is always so attentive and respectful. Looking forward to coming back again.

Roberto's massage is truly the best massage I have ever had.After a long plane ride, nothing gets you relaxed and ready to vacation than his massage.

Came for an 80-minute massage and to spend a few hours after I checked out of my hotel and before my flight out. Couldn’t recommend more. Curtis gave a fantastic massage, checking in on pressure and responding accordingly. They graciously welcomed me to spend the afternoon, even though I wasn’t staying on property, offering a place to shower before I had to leave. I will definitely come back, but next time to stay at this beautiful small resort.

The service and atmosphere is top notch! The rooms are beautiful and so is the property. They have a world class spa on property so you almost never have to leave the resort. Fun, beautiful and relaxing. I can't wait until our next visit.

This place is amazing. The staff is terrific, Rob at the desk has great recommendations and very friendly; Paula, Curtis and Rob in the spa perform their rolls with the utmost professionalism.Very clean all around; the grounds and rooms were always spotless. This will definitely be a destination for us to come more often.

The Spa: Honestly, my experiences at Spa are part of why I stay at the Grand, and after three massages this past year from Roberto, it's easy to see why he's won local "Best Massage Therapist" awards three years running. It's clear this work is his passion. There is a calmness and centeredness about his practice, and he shows deep care for clients. He has the technical skills and abilities the job requires, but his approach elevates the experience. Add to that: I reached out via Facebook with a question a couple of days after my most recent visit, and he replied promptly with the same gracious tone he had in person at the spa. If I didn't live so far away, I'd definitely be there more regularly.The Resort: The Grand definitely has location going for it: two blocks to the beach, and dozens of restaurants within easy walking distance. Behind the resort's walls, it has a calm, relaxing environment, with comfortable rooms, plenty of space to relax, and friendly and attentive staff. I tend to arrive and almost never leave except to go watch the ocean or to dine, and most of my daily decisions are along the lines of "lie on the pool deck or in the fountain courtyard?" or "read or keep my eyes closed?". I've enjoyed every stay, and look forward to visiting again.

We had a more than enjoyable time! Staff was top notch! It's a beautiful and relaxing environment to enjoy, not to mention the iguanas by the hot tub!

I so wish I could give The Grand 10 stars.First, Iron a 2 day stay back in November 2019 just prior to the close down for Covid. Jump a to this past week. The Grand honored the certificates even though they expired in 2020. This was my first taste of the wonderfulness of the resort.The check in was flawless and quick. We were give a quick tour prior to being taken to our room. The room itself was amazing. It was almost a full apartment, with a big king sized bed, full kitchen (everything needing to cook was available and wrapped for our protection.The service was impeccable. Any needs or concerns were followed through immediately. A special shout out to John, the night manager as he spent over 40 minutes with me in search of a misplaced hearing aid (with help from the hearing aid app we were able to find it.).I had a massage and another shout out to Curtis. I advised him of my spinal issues and was careful not to injure the area. He gave me the most relaxing massage I have had in a long time. As the spa is open to the public, I plan on returning.The property itself is maintained beautifully, from the rooms (no housekeeping due to covid) to the pool and hot tub, to the continental breakfast. Even the robes provided fit this large round belly of mine.Over our 2 days we met some fantastic people, who I hope to maintain contact with.All in all this is a great place for gay men seeking a clothing optional resort.I do not understand why I never thought to stay at The Grand for all these years.I could not recommend The Grand Resort and Spa more highly.Thank you, Kevin.

We had an amazing time at the resort. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful, the facility is beautiful and relaxing. The hot tub and pool were just what the doctor ordered. The spa was fabulous, we were able to enjoy a spa package and it was worth every penny! I can't wait to come back for another stay.

Great clean comfortable room. Very good bed! Staff is personable and very helpful. All male, clothing optional, clientele was middle aged very few perfect bodies. Really comfortable safe environment. Close to beach and the hotel gives you chairs and towels to take. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance. Only suggestion is to have leaves cleaned out of pool daily.
