ft Lauderdale visit
Great location with lovely pool & on the ocean. Indoor cafe & bar served excellent breakfast at modest pricing & ocean bar has a great view. Resort fee includes parking, towels at pool & chairs & umbrella on beach. Housekeeping was lacking …didn’t come until 4:30+ when we were getting showered to go out so we had to send them away. Same thing next day! So we had 3 night stay with no housekeeping!

Highly recommend. Will be back!
We had a wonderful stay at Plunge. There were some renovations going on in the Resort view building, so the front desk manager upgraded us to ocean front rooms. The view was amazing, right on the beach, super comfy beds and pillows, great customer service as far as check-in, bikes, lunch, bar, chair, umbrella service. Highly recommend. Will be back!

Location, Location, Location!
Wonderful location, but buildings are under renovation. Very noisy during the day, but they have to do upgrading the property sometime. We just happened to be there during the jackhammer phase.

An excellent place to stay at.
I had such a great experience. The minute I got to the Plunge Hotel & Resort, I was greeted with big smiles and warm welcome. Suzette was very exceptional in her servicing me. I was surprised with the Upgrade to a Bungalow, which I had accepted of course. Everyone there was super friendly and great. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. It’s directly on the beach. I got what I wanted and more. Thank you for advertising and making me make a great choice. They offer a shuttle service, which is a great idea to take me to nearby restaurants and shipping plaza’s.
