It was ok.. Misleading on the internet. The restaurant in the hotel was only open on Saturday and Sunday.. one of the main reasons we booked here was to be able to eat without leaving the resort. On Sunday when we did go down for breakfast they were majorly understaffed. The coffee shop was overpriced & always had a huge line so we had to walk across the street to get coffee. We had to call down to get fresh towels, toilet paper and Kleenex two or three times. . The maid service came every couple of days. When we booked the hotel it said they had two pools. Only to learn, One of them was private for guests staying in the bungalows. Some staff at the front desk were very friendly and accommodating, when I forgot my mask they had disposables at hand with a smile. Other staff members told us go to CVS across the street. On the plus side the free bike rental was a highlight. My three kids and I road them 2or 3 times. They were great and easy to access. The towels/ chair guys were great very friendly. The location was also great. A short walk to all the activity and restaurants. The Plunge seemed more like a hotel to me than a resort. It was just ok for me.

Plunge had everything we needed and wanted for a stay at the beach without having to travel with it! The staff was incredibly friendly. Location couldn’t be better. We can’t wait to get back!

We really enjoyed our time at Plunge! Can’t beat the location - a nice walk to Commercial Blvd with plenty of great spots to eat, and Publix and CVS right around the corner for other needs. Beans & Barnacle serves Starbucks, which I loved, but no free breakfast or anything (we were totally fine with that). The room was clean-ish...I think could have been cleaner. We had a fantastic room right outside the pool that was so convenient. The beach was rough, but no fault of the resort! I didn’t realize Ft. Lauderdale’s beaches were so shelly (not super soft sand) and a lot of seaweed washes up each day. Still dove in, beautiful views and warm water! The staff was just fantastic, Jorge makes a fab Long Island at the beach bar and we loved the fries! We got to the resort before check in and had a very late flight on departure day and were able to use the amenities while we waited, which was much appreciated. Pool is cleaned daily, but they need to replace some of the lounge chairs there; some you could barely even sit in because they were totally ripped! We would definitely stay here again!

The hotel lobby was nice and great coffee shop. The staff was all very nice and pleasant. Had better expectations for the room itself and pool area. We had to stay across the street from the pool which was also very small and cold. The room had stains on the couch and curtains.
